Random Ramblings

Merrianne is giving away a package of her favorite things. Doesnt that just sound exciting? I'm pretty sure whatever it is I want it cause this girl has got some good taste. Plus what a fun idea right? I'm gonna pick up a few of my own favorite things and do one of these myself. So fun!

I haven't been sleeping well lately. It seems each night is for a different reason but it's the end of the week and it's really hitting me hard. I wonder if I'll crash Saturday night with the kids at 8pm?

A SUPER nice gentleman helped me out today. Just cause he was kind and could tell I was in need. It would have been easy to look the other way or think 'someone else will help', but he didn't. He went out of his way to ease my burden.

Gramee is always finding out about these really cool giveaways. She had a shout out to Book Giveaways on her blog. I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to check out this site more. The current book up for grabs is this one pictured here.

I over did it a little with my upper body workout on Wednesday and I'm really feeling it today. It hurts to even lift up my 20lb 2 year old. C'mon muscle grow faster, you're killin me.

My oldest is 6 and for the first time I had an unrelated babysitter come over to watch the kids. Does anyone else completely clean the house for the babysitter? A little stressful trying to get ready today but I came home to a clean house and kids in bed. Ahhh what a good feeling.

Nope, I don't clean my house for our babysitters, although I certainly hope (and tip!) when they clean mine!
PS: thanks for the heads up on the give aways...those can be addicting!

I haven't yet asked a non-family (or close friend) to babysit. And I do clean my house for even them. I'm kind of a crazy person when it comes to stuff like that though.

I haven't been sleeping well either. it affects your whole life, huh? I'm doing a sleep study after we get back from our big family trip. Find out what the heck is wrong with me!

Giveaways are so fun..i have rarely won..unlike you
i did win one the other day!
i am so glad you are still reading my blog even when i am "DRY" i am not finding many fun things to blog about!
you are a great blog friend!

i never did clean for babysitters..i always hoped my house was as clean or cleaner, when i return home.
one day a whole bag of chips crushed on the living room carpet.. didn't earn the babysitter any tip, or a call back to babysit!

my grand kids are 5, 7, 9, and have never had an unrelated babysitter!
lucky when you can do that!..

My oldest is six and he just had his first unrelated babysitter last weekend! When I got home, she had the kids in their pajamas, teeth brushed and was reading them books. I gave her a good tip :)

I love your random list. Great stuff!

Okay, I just spent the last I don't know how long on the fun fabulous finds blog thanks to your button. I will be blogging about it a bit on Wednesday (and giving you a little linky love too) so I hope you don't mind!
