I'm behind!! Oh dear...

Happy Friday the 13th!  It looks as if I've gotten behind in writing blog posts...  oops!  I try to do all my writing on the weekends when I've got some free time, and write up enough for a weeks worth of posts (or 2 weeks worth if I'm feeling ambitious!). However, I've had house guests recently for a couple of weekends, so didn't get a chance to get ahead in my writing.  No big deal since real life takes precedence over the blog you know.  But then last weekend I didn't do any writing, just because I was being lazy and I wanted to loaf around instead. And I've been doing so good keeping up with my M-W-F updates too... Sorry everyone. I'll try to do some real blog work this weekend :)

So no crafts for today, but here are a few things worth mentioning I think!

Earlier this week I was checking the mail, and turned around to say something to Stephen, and leaned on the screen door and OW! My arm started hurting!  Well I looked at the door and there was a wasp on it!  I got stung by a wasp!

I can't believe it!  I don't know why but a few weeks ago I had decided for some reason that I probably wasn't ever going to get stung by a bee or wasp again in my life. I know that this is a weird conclusion to come to.  But I did. I guess I figured I wasn't dumb enough to upset a wasp anymore, and only kids get stung.  Haha - good one me...

Next, have you ever tried Swagbucks?  I've been using it for the past couple of months and LOVE it!  It is a site that rewards you for searching like you normally would! You just have to use their search engine (which I believe draws from google and  I've earned myself a couple great prizes already :)  You can also take surveys and sign up for special offers to earn points, but really all you have to do is search.

Search & Win

My main goal is to save up enough money to buy a few Christmas presents for free!  So far so good!!  Anyways, if you haven't tried it yet, I'd love it if you'd sign up using my referral link ( because then I get matching swagbucks for any you earn from searches.  It's good for both of us really!  Trust me - this site is totally for real! 

Finally, you may or may not have noticed that I added an email subscription option on the sidebar!  If you are interested in keeping up with my posts but don't want to have to come out and check what's new, or don't have a reader to tell you when there is something new, go ahead and sign up :)  No pressure!  I decided to add it because the other day I kind of cornered a friend at work about why he wasn't reading my blog.  His excuse was that his reader was so full that he couldn't keep up with it but if I had an email subscription he could know when to come read.  Now I know this was just an excuse to get me off his back, I am aware that my blog probably doesn't have a lot of appeal to men ;)  However, I thought this might be a valid excuse for some people, so now you have a new subscription option!   You're welcome!

Thanks for suffering through my ramblings for the day, and I hope to be back to our regularly scheduled craft updates next week!

What I Did Today said...

Aw man! That's awful! The last time I got stung I flipped out, jumped up and down and bawled. Wish I could say it was when I was a kid. But it wasn't. :)
