*Expired* Update on Heather @ Freebies 4 Mom

by Freebies4Mom on September 14, 2008 11:11 am

Hello, everyone!

Lorelei from Hooray For Free-bates! says she received a text message from Heather this morning and she is okay and did not have any major damage from Hurricane Ike!

She is without power, and no word yet on how long that might be or when she’ll be back to her busy blogging self!

I wish she could read how much her readers care about her! I’ve been moderating the comments on this blog, and you guys have been so supportive! She’s lucky to have all of you!

I will be doing my best to keep Freebies4Mom going for Heather in her absence… but I do have my own blog at Northern Cheapskate to take care of, too! (And three kids, and a crazy terrier, etc., etc.)

So for those of you who would like to help: Please email me at I am looking for freebies, coupons, giveaways and sweeps for Freebies for Mom. (I’ll be sure to give you credit for any tips!).

Also, if any of you are interested in writing a guest post for Northern Cheapskate (my blog focuses on frugal living), please e-mail me your ideas, as that would help tremendously!

And a couple of reminders: I don’t have access to Heather’s e-mail, so if you have something that you think would be good to post on Freebies4Mom or reports of a dead deal, etc., please contact me.

Also: For all of Heather’s Twitter Followers: Heather’s blog automatically sends a Twitter every time something is posted here. So for those folks who get excited to see her face on Twitter, please note that it may not be her… it may just be that I’ve posted to something here!

Thanks so much for your patience and your help! I will post updates as I hear of them!

Thank you everyone, I am glad to be back and to such a well-taken care of blog. Are you sure I can’t take a few more days off? Seriously, I’ve been going stir-crazy and have been getting way too much shut-eye since you can’t do much without power after the sun goes down at night. Glad to be back! Thanks for your prayers and well wishes! We were lucky to weather this hurricane so well. And of course we will be better prepared next time, and more likely to just skip town since we now know what it is like to be without power for a few days.

So glad to hear that they are okay!

Yep, she said that their power is out and cell phone service is hit or miss…unfortunately par for the hurricane course. If I hear anything else from her, I will be sure to let everyone know! I’m sure she knows they are in all of our prayers!
