Apologies To My Readers & EC Droppers

I have to say I’m sorry for not dropping at EC as much the last couple of weeks. I also have to say I’m sorry to my readers for not writing as much. I’ve been so busy with the last several weeks getting ready for Christmas, doing a Tupperware event with my mom, and volunteering a lot more at my son’s school. I have been neglecting my other blogs more and barely keeping up with this one. I need to learn to manage my time a little better than I am right now.

I’m hoping that I will be able to start substitute teaching at my son’s school after the Christmas break is over. The pay is pretty good for a mom who hasn’t worked outside the home in almost 9 years. I sold on Ebay for the last 8 years and made enough money to supplement our income nicely. To be honest I’m bored. I have done the SAHM thing long enough. I want to get back out in the world of people again and, while I love chatting with some of my online friends, it’s just not the same. The school said I would be able to work pretty much 40 hours a week. The schedule is great since I go to work and leave at the same time as my son, no weekends, and I get the same vacation so this is perfect. If I decide that I like working at the school, then I am planning on taking the para test so I can become a teacher aide next August. I’m excited about this new opportunity, but I will keep up with my blogs. I still enjoy writing them, and I plan on waking up earlier so I can still have time to write and drop before school.

I also have some changes in store for next year. I really want to do more contests and giveaways on all of my blogs. I also want to do more product reviews. Some of the reviews won’t be compensated, but just something I want to do. I’m also curious about some of these “As Seen on TV” products. These reviews will be completely honest and not biased in the least. I might even give a few of these away. Definitely come back next week on New Year’s Eve. I won’t give out details yet, but it will tie in with goals and changes for the New Year.

I hope everyone has a very safe and Merry Christmas!

I Can’t Believe I Won!

I posted last week about the $50 Amazon giveaway that World of Mom was hosting on her blog, and I was the lucky winner! It was a great way to start my Thanksgiving Day. I have to give her a big THANK YOU and, I had a lot of fun spending it today. I was able to buy several great DVD movies that I wanted but was too cheap to buy. I rarely win anything so this was a wonderful surprise and I’m still smiling.

My 200th Post!

This is my 200th post! It’s another milestone for my blog, and next month will be my 6 month anniversary. I do plan on doing a drawing for it, but I won’t say what it is quite yet.

I don’t always respond to all the comments, but I read all of them. I really appreciate them. Stay tuned for more great drawings, and again thank you to all my readers.
