    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to wish you a happy Thanksgiving and apologize for being a bit AWOL from lately.

    I have so much to be thankful for this year.

    As many of you already know, my house was flooded by Hurricane Matthew.

    For the last six weeks or so my family has been through a whirlwind of cleaning out and throwing away most of our furniture and stuff, tearing out walls and floors, disinfecting, mildewciding, dealing with insurance adjusters, building inspectors, contractors, city and county regulations, and… after all this, it looks like the damage is so extensive we will have to demolish the house and rebuild.

    But I am soooooo very thankful to family and friends that have done so much to help us out.

    We were loaned a travel trailer than we are living in for now. Our homeschool coop has been providing a big casserole to us each week. Family, neighbors and volunteers have been to our house to help with the cleanup and teardown of walls and floors. We had flood insurance so eventually everything – should – work out as we rebuild (final numbers aren’t in yet). It’s just a long process.

    And then there’s YOU!

    I am so thankful to our News For Shoppers writers and members that have kept NFS going while I’ve been dealing with all this! You’ve been posting stories, reading articles, new members have been signing up and taking advantage of our program with Abenity discounts. It’s been awesome!

    I had just gotten our new forum going and we don’t have many posts there yet – but if you find some particularly great Black Friday deals, please be sure to share them! The forum is at:

    Of course, if you run into any consumer issues, good or bad, please post them as well. Especially if they are Black Friday related.
