Am I Being Punked?

It's been a strange day today. It started by waking up to the kids bouncing into my bedroom with the soggy newspaper. Much yelling and jumping and 4 different babbling kids voices before THIS was shoved under my nose.

Yeah, I'm famous. You can wistfully say you knew me when...

(excuse me while I choke on my "5 minutes of fame" laughter)

The fun part is that I dragged my family into the spotlight. Do you know how cool it is to be 8 years old and feel the need to practice your autograph? The kids were giddy with the fact that all their friends were going to see their picture in the paper.

I think Malachi was a little disappointed when we went to the library and he wasn't recognized. Sorry kid, fame is fleeting.

The even cooler news? I got a job out of the deal. You're lookin' at the new columnist for The Daily News. I'll be writing a bi-monthly column on frugality and actually getting paid for it.

Just call me Lois Lane.

Chris is going to love his new title, too.

I read the article and I'm thinking I need a Goodwill where clothes are purchased by the pound! We're considering a trip to Portland this weekend, maybe we should make a stop to Vancouver!

Wow, a real live columnist! I'm so excited for you! You're so humble. 35,000 hits a month?!?! That's awesome! What a fabulous ministry you have!
I had an idea for you, since you're famous now. You're basically giving free advertising on your blog to the grocery stores you shop at. Have you considered letting them know that and asking for a discount or something? Barter food for advertising? You can take them the article to show that you're legit...
