Let's just jump right in. I know I am neglecting all 3 of my readers, haha. However, I have been busy, busy, busy. It finally stopped raining. That meant yard work and playing with the kids.
Then, there is the fact that 2 of my kids are trying to finish out their homeschool year by the end of the month, so we are knocking out a lot of last minute projects and assignments. I am still hopeful that we will be done by the 27th. I could use a break, too. Homeschooling 3 kids is not exactly restful.
Finally, I have been doing a lot of reading, movie watching and entering contests. I spent about 4 months at the end of last year entering giveaways and contests and I did very well. However, in order to do really well, you have to approach it almost like a job.
So, I spent hours a day on line- entering, writing essays, uploading photos, etc. It paid off- we had a great Christmas and I only spent $70 out of pocket. I won everything from a great Nikon camera to several high value gift cards to various retailers.
Anyway, I got sucked in the other day when an interesting giveaway popped up on my Facebook page. Now, I am starting to get back into entering again. I would really like to be able to get some summer items for us and if I devote some of my 'free' time I just might. Who needs to shower everyday, anyway?
