I'm Going to Try Not to Lose You

>> Friday, August 13, 2010

I'm about to try to do my best not to lose all of those that subscribe.

Shortly (within the next hour), I will be posting another post that is called "Welcome."  If you get it, it means that I successfully moved your subscription.  If you don't, please visit me over at the new site for Catholic Mothers Online and resubscribe.

Thank you!


We're Moving Soon!

>> Thursday, August 12, 2010

Catholic Mothers Online is soon going to be moving to

There are many exciting changes coming with the move, and I hope that everyone will enjoy the new site.  The design will still be very similar, but there will be articles more regularly and hopefully content that you really enjoy.  We'll also launch with a giveaway!

I will warn everyone before we move, because it is my intention to try to move the subscriptions to the new blog.  Hopefully with a warning though, if your subscription doesn't get moved, you'll remember to come check out the new site and resubscribe.

Things are moving along well.  I know that some people have been waiting to get added to the blog roll (or to receive the coding, as it will be slightly different).  Thank you for waiting!

There will continue to be advertising spots for 125x125 ads on the upper right column on the new site.  If you are interested in advertising, you can check out the details about advertising on Catholic Mothers Online As a special bonus (and for a limited time), advertising spots will be available for $20 for a three month term, instead of $25.  (Monthly spots are $10/month.)  There are a limited number of spots though, so if you are interested in advertising your business, blog, Etsy shop, or even just a special message, please contact me as soon as possible.  (Simple ads can be designed for you for a small cost, so don't let not having an ad stop you from inquiring.)

I'm very excited for what is to come, and hope you are too!  (I'm also hoping to have everything finished before the date on the countdown on the new site.  Wish me luck!)


Family Savings Fridays: July 30, 2010

>> Thursday, July 29, 2010

Welcome to a new feature here at Catholic Mothers Online. Since so many Catholic families have larger families or may have had to give up a second income to homeschool or make other financial sacrifices, I have decided to share some deals from around the Internet once a week (or maybe just once every other week - I'll have to figure it out as I go along). So, if you're interested in the deals, then I hope you'll enjoy it. However, if this is a feature that you don't enjoy, just feel free to ignore me when I post these, okay?

This one expires Friday (July 30th) at noon: If you are a blogger and want to turn your blog into a business and really grow it, you will probably enjoy the session recordings, handouts, and power point presentations from the Savvy Blogging Summit Conference.  The set of all of the recordings and handouts is normally $97, but through tomorrow at noon (using the code CHEYENNE), you can get them at half price!

And then with even less time available, for the next couple of hours, the new eBook 110 Breakfast Recipes is on sale for $3.97! Act quickly on this one!

My eBook, Finding Educational Activities in the Most Unexpected Places, is currently priced at 50% off.  All of the proceeds from those sales (using the coupon code bike) will go toward buying my 11 year old son with Autism his very first bike.  (It's an expensive one, so if you don't mind passing along the info about this to others, I would greatly appreciate it.)

Canvas People is offering new customers a $55 credit, which means you can get a free 8x10 canvas made from your favorite photograph. (You'll just be responsible for paying for the shipping and handling.) This could make for an amazing Christmas present!

With CellFire Coupons, you can add coupons right to your grocery store savings card. Stores that they serve include: Baker's City Market Dillons Fry's Gerbes Hilander JayC King Soopers Kroger Owen's Pay Less QFC Ralphs Scott's Smith's Carrs Dominick's Genuardi's Pavilions Randall's Safeway Tom Thumb Vons ShopRite

Diabetic Connect Care Services is offering a free low carb recipe book. Now, you will have to give your name and address (and the like), but if you feel comfortable with that, then this is a great freebie.

York Photo is offering 40 free prints for signing up as a new customer. They also have everyday low prices of $.04 a print! (I don't know about you, but I have a few thousand photos to be printed. It's simply shocking to me.)

Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel is accepting new families. You can earn points for products by scanning products that you buy with the scanner that they provide for you.

Vista Print has a variety of current offers for items where you only pay for the shipping, and get the items for free otherwise. The current Vista Print offers include: Personalized Tote Bag, 250 Free Business Cards, a Free 4x6 Photo Flip Book, a Free Photo Wall Calendar (another great Christmas gift idea!), 10 Free Products (rubber stamp, sticky notes, wall calendar, flip book, tote bag, mug, and mouse pad).

(Now, it is important to note that you need to be careful while ordering from Vista Print. I have ordered tons of things and never had problems, but some people have had issues with extra charges. From what I have heard, you just need to be very aware while ordering and careful that nothing is checked that you wouldn't want to be checked. I have probably ordered from them 25 times though, and never had an issue.)

SimplyInk is offering 10% off ink and toner plus free shipping on orders over $55.  This is a perfect way to stock up before school starts!

If you like to use coupons, be sure to check out sites like Free Coupon Alerts, Free Flys (samples and coupons),, and Share the Save.

Welcome to the Ordinary

>> Monday, July 26, 2010

I love feast days. The vestments are white - there is a "specialness" that is in the church - as we gather to celebrate something special - something specific.
Then, we move onto Ordinary Time. In fact, we will be there for a while now - the next feast we observe on Sunday will be the Assumption of Mary, which happens in mid-August.

Parked in the ordinary, we will see green vestments.

The green color of the altar cloths - it reminds me of the green outside at this time of year - green things growing in the summer sun and rains. Producing fruit.

Growing. Producing.

This is a time for us, also, to grow.

Nourished by His body - nourished by the Word - nourished by the ordinary days of our life, lived in hope.

Welcome to the Ordinary.
In between home-keeping, home-schooling, and home-farming, you can find LuAnne (aka Mrs. Imperfect) writing and pondering at
