Swag, Baby

So, I've decided to finally join SwagBucks to earn points for searching the web. I've resisted long enough. In my first day I got up to 72 points! I only need 450 for each $5 Amazon code I want, so it should prove to be fairly lucrative for earning a little towards Christmas and birthday gifts. I also have a ton of MyPoints to cash in too towards Christmas. Yay for free gifts! If you are interested in signing up for either, you can join SB by clicking on the widget to the right, or send me a message for MyPoints and I'll send you the link.

The worst chore ever

I have finally discovered what the worst household chore EVER is. It is power washing wood siding. What A Mess! We're prepping the house to repaint it soon (hopefully it will be done in 2 weeks). Even though we tarped 10 feet out from the house, I was still digging through the yard picking up paint chips that flew off from the pressure of the washer. Now we just have to wait for the house to dry. It looks terrible right now, but I'm hoping to start priming this weekend. That will at least make it look a tiny bit better.

Long time, no blog

Life sure did get busy and out of control starting in January. I started working 2 days a week along with volunteering 2 other days during the week. That leaves me with one day to get laundry done and have some time for ME. Girl Scouts and now basketball practice and games have also taken up 3 evenings a week. I don't even have much time for Tupperware anymore, but I am staying active so any orders are welcome and appreciated. I don't even remember when the last traditional in-home party was that I did. I have a book party and fundraiser going right now and also keep up with my monthly vendor group too. Whew, I have a love/hate relationship with being this busy. I love that the kids are taking an interest in being more involved in after school activities, and it gets Gabby in with a better group of friends than some of her other so-called friends (who regularly were a part of her getting in trouble for behavior).
