Libbys Get Back to The Table

As you all know I love entering contests and giveaways, and even though its Christmas Day here I am! The hubbub is over and everyone is full. Now I just want to reflect and rest!
So while searching for some good giveaways I found one that not only can help me but also give back to the community. Libbys is offering a $300 grocery shopping spree! $150 for you and $150 for your favorite charity! How awesome is that? There are so many folks in need this year that its heart breaking. And though I am not going without there was a time a few years back that the local food cupboard was a neccessity. I would love to be able to give back since I know that they have more needy families now than ever! I live in a small town and the local food cupboard is run by the United Methodist Church of Guilford. With 2 major businesses in our small town either closing or laying off, its going to be an awfully hard winter. If you would like to enter to win too you can check it out here:

Win a Poingo Reader

This sure looks like a great new toy! You can enter to win one, too!
Poingo is "fun right out to the box," with no complicated instructions. Kids simply turn it on, and go. With Poingo, books become more entertaining and engaging, making kids want to read. Poingo uses a mini-scanner to "read" microscopic symbols throughout a Poingo-enabled book. You can't see the symbols but Poingo can. The symbols trigger Poingo to play words, music, sound effects, and interactive games - such as matching or "look and find" activities. Kids use Poingo to help Nemo swim through a ring of fire before time runs out or, through an onboard speaker, hear Car's Characters zoom.

Breast Cancer 3-Day

Bring your energy, your passion, your stories, your humor and your fashion sense to the Breast Cancer 3-Day! More than just 60 miles over a long weekend, the Breast Cancer 3-Day is a months-long journey out of the everyday.

It starts the moment you register. Organize a group in your area to train and walk together. You'll have coaches to help you every step of the journey, helping you challenge yourself and succeed.

On the walk, be sure to bring your stories and humor - and plenty of creative accessories!

You'll get food and beverages to keep you going, as well as rest


"Live For Today" performed by Natalie Grant. Special thanks to Curb Records, courtesy of Razor & Tie Music Publishing

areas, safety guidelines and medical support.

At camp, enjoy hot meals, showers - even entertainment. Kick off your shoes (it'll feel so good!) and relax in the 3-Day Café. Sleep cozy in cute little two-person tents.

At the end, you will be amazed - by the courage of survivors; by the commitment of the walkers, just like you; by the power of the individual and the power of many.

Everyone deserves a lifetime - and you deserve the experience of a lifetime!

Step up and let your voice, and footsteps, be heard!

A change of pace

They say change is good, but its not always good feeling! I am dealing with that now. For 10 years I have been caring for my aging Mom at home..and enjoying it most of the time. However, her health has declined to a point where I have to consider putting her into a boarding home. Its not an easy choice to make. I would like to be able to keep her here but I am not physically able to care for her anymore and I want her to have the best care possible. She is a part of this decision and she says she doesn't want to go ( of course) but she knows its the right thing to do. That only makes me feel guilty, as a daughter, not to be able to give her all she needs. Have any of you dealt with this? Its sure occupying much of my time just thinking "what if".......

Let Me Introduce Myself!

Hello blogging world! This is all new to me so hopefully it will be a successful endeaver!
I am a middle aged ( shock!) Mom of 6 and Grandma of 14. I can't imagine how that happened in so many short years, but it is what it is! LOL I have been married for 29 years, though my husband and I have lived apart for the last 9 years. Thats a whole other story and I'll tell you someday after I get more comfortable with the blogging! Let me just say it works for us!
My hobbies include Bingo, entering sweepstakes and casino gambling. I DON'T think I have a gambling problem but I sure like to win! My youngest son says I would bet on a snail race if the odds were good!
I am a personal care attendant and I take care of my live-in Mom who is 73 and disabled. She is a joy and we get along like 2 peas in a pod! Most days my work involves just being here, so it leaves me a lot of free time, which used to be boring until I discovered the computer! Now, like many of you, I can't find enough hours in a day to do all I want to do!
I have a friend who has encouraged me to get into blogging and I have been a bit reluctant, but since its 4th of July I decided today is the day to get started! Happy Independence Day everyone!!I hope yoy all get a big bang out of the day!
