    Default Just a general "Thanks"


    Something happened tonight that truly made me remember to say "thanks" to all of you for being open, kind, and respectful.

    I wanted to just send out a general thanks to the members, moderators, and owner of the website for such an open and accepting forum. Even when people have differing opinions, there are no insults taken, no one comes here to unleash their "life" frustrations on the group, or infighting. I know it is not so easy to do so all of the time, but it is accomplished here all of the time.


    I felt that way when this was mainly a yahoo group. I am glad to see that the tone of the group remains pleasant, friendly, and helpful.

    We're glad you enjoy your time here on the site ladies! My philosophy is.. there are enough things in our lives that cause stress and frustration, when we're online, we should be able to "escape" for a few minutes everyday and have fun.

    It's kind of like... running away and having a hot bubble bath, but without getting soaked or pruny.
    ~Enjoy!~

    I agree, it is good to get away and know you are with like minded people who are sooo willing to help each other. Thanks everyone!!!!

    I haven't been able to get on the site for 3 days, kept telling me there was a connection problem. I was having withdrawal symthoms. Kept running to the computer every few hours to try again. Am I addicted or what!!!

    Big thank you for getting it up and running again, it really had me worried.
    Missed y'all!!

    It's good to know that I haven't been alone in my feelings the last few days, I have a routine as well. I'm usually by myself in the mornings and sit here and enjoy checking the weather,searching for new recipes, or looking for freebies. THANKS EVERYONE

    Coming here every day, especially in the morning, is a joy just to experience the general camaraderie. Such helpful people AND always more to learn about saving money on everything. It keeps me on the straight and narrow with my saving during the day.

    i was nervous too, but when i got used to no harsh language *i belonged to a similar forum but the people were just harsh as harsh can be* and everyone is very kind and loving. almost as if we were a huge family!
