For the few of you that enjoy my blog and sparse posts, I thought I just do a ramble post. 🙂
I started this blog to share the deals I’d find, stuff I do online to earn a little extra spending cash, and sweepstakes. I’m not one to share a bunch of personal stuff just because I don’t want it all out on the web and plus I don’t think my personal stuff is all that exciting! 🙂
Anyway, I’ve been trying to think of stuff to write for my blog. If you’re a blogger, you know how hard it is to come up with good posts that aren’t just posts about deals and freebies. So that’s why I’m quiet most of the time.
On the personal side, I’m busy homeschooling my 8 yr old and trying to keep my almost 2 yr old occupied. She’s VERY clingy and likes to comfort nurse a lot. I’d like to wean her sooner than later. It looks like I’ll have to wait til she’s ready which should be soon, though, cause when she does nurse during the day, it’s not that long. My little one is so different from my first cause my first was never THIS attached to me even though I stayed home with her, too. She nursed very well on a schedule and when I decided to wean her, it was no problem whatsoever. That’s ok though, cause I don’t know if we’ll have another one by birth or adopt so I want to cherish this special time with the little one that we have when she nurses because once she’s done, she’s done and it’ll be bittersweet. I love the nursing time with her, but I’d also like to not have a little one attached to me at the breast so much! LOL
I’m also always busy trying to figure out what to make for dinner, go grocery shopping, making dinner, trying to keep the kitchen clean (not working very well) and make cookies from scratch so I don’t get tempted to buy the processed stuff from the store.
I’ve been setting some time each day to enter some sweepstakes. Haven’t won much lately except for the 2 free coke coupons! Not good when I’m trying to stay away from regular soda. We have a Soda Stream so I need to make my own soda syrups once I get a new CO2 canister. I’m really hoping to win a car. Doesn’t everyone? We have 2 cars that both are well over 150,000 miles and each have issues that we haven’t had the money to get fixed. One of the problems is causing the AC not to work and in this Florida heat is NOT a problem you want to have!
While I’m online, I do all sorts of little things to earn gift cards like Swagbucks, InstaGC (another great way to earn gift cards), etc (check out my money makers category). Oh how I miss Superpoints.
Now if I didn’t already have enough on my plate, I decided to start making hats for preemies in NICUs. I just bought a circle loom and yarn from a yard sale so I’ll be starting tonight. 🙂
I know this post didn’t flow very well so I apologize. I told you this was going to be a rambling post. 🙂
Would love to learn how long you’ve been following my blog! Comment and let me know! 🙂 Tell me I’m not just writing to myself! LOL
