Day 2 ...100th Post Giveaway Extravaganza

To view Day 1 and see what you may win
click the pic below.
Don't forget to leave a comment!

SO now that some of you are interested, allow me to clarify some of the guidelines (I'll try and stay away from the word rules - blech, who needs 'em ) Hmmm... let me make this as painless as possible. A comment on the current post of the day is all you need to enter the giveaway. You can earn one entry each day you visit and comment. An extra entry will be given to anyone who mentions the Giveaway Extravaganza on their own blog with a link. You can mention it more than once (really I don't mind ::eye flutter::) But you will only get one entry for the mention(s).

I'm sort of wingin' it here... is it getting too complicated?

Now, to make a link all you need to do is highlight the title of my blog then go up and click on the little globe icon (it has a little chain link over it...get it :-p ) It is next to where you choose the font

Then enter my little blog address in the box then click OK. Piece of pie! Who doesn't like pie?

A maximum of six entries will be given to any one person. If you want to go back and enter for each day (homework :-p) I will provide links on the current post to assist those of you who are scroll bar impaired.

Now onto the fun stuff... I hope ;-)

I believe this was my second post from April 17, 2006. A little presumptuous I think. And who was I talking to anyway? Besides myself :-p

A Random Intro

Resurrection Day! What a great day to start something new and life giving. What is this little blog of mine giving life to you ask? Why, to my Christian walk, my dreams, my personality, my individuality, my sanity for crying out loud! Before it all slips away into obscurity and gets buried beneath a pile of smelly Pampers.

My dream is to have an 'audience' of people who visit my blog regularly and are actually entertained by what they read. My husband says this is a perfect outlet for me to write without the pressure of having to actually say anything. I'm sure he will be my biggest fan (After all, he already is).

I feel like writing is my native tongue. I like myself better on paper (or screen, as the case may be). I can form my thoughts, write them, edit them, re-edit them, and re-edit them. I tend to be a perfectionist in some areas.
What can a mother of three, with one on the way, possibly have to say that anyone would want to read? I don't know, that is a good question. One thing I am sure of is that I have a lot of random thoughts that I simply need to get out of my head. As it is I find it difficult to hold a conversation and complete a coherent sentence because everything has been pent up so long that it all tries to come out at once.

Anyway, I'm hoping that at least a fraction of these thoughts will be valuable to someone. If not at least I can go back and read them and see what in the world I was thinking.
I can guarantee that the majority of my random thoughts are not political. My Knowledge of politics is minimal and shallow at best and consists of what I hear on the news, read in the comics, and listen to my husband rant about (no offense, My Love). However, I do have a close friend who is very knowledgeable and keeps herself very well informed and involved. She lets me know what is going on and why it should interest me. Why does she hang with me if I can't talk politics? Well, I think it has to do with a love of God, life, and gardening...among other things I'm sure. Okay, Lets get random.
  • I love God.
  • I love my husband.
  • I love my kids.
  • I am not a desperate housewife, although, I am a house wife and occasionally I get desperate.
  • I am alone most of the day with my three kids, the oldest of which is four.
  • I home school.
  • I didn't get to take a nap today because I was working on this blog.


P.S. Resurrection Day = Easter.

Hi Sweet One,

No need to enter me in the contest (no pepsi lovers here). Just wanted to congratulate you on the milestone. I'm right behind you, but doubt I will celebrate in like style. You're a powerhouse of energy -- you must get it from your kids. : D

Love the early posts, even though I have read them already -- from day 1!. Way back when you invited me to your blog and I came, I read, I enjoyed. You're precious! I love you! Happy 100 and 101! See you soon at 102. ; )
