"It" Has Arrived

It's horrible! I hate to even type the word. The word conjures up all kinds of horrible images and even worse phantom symptoms. You hear the word and instantly your head begins to feel tingly and wait ---- did I just feel that? Does my head itch? Do you know what word I dread to even type here? Well, here goes ------ lice ----- I did it. I typed it.

The news is out! We have
lice. Feel free to run if you want. Don't look back. SAVE YOURSELVES!!

The good news is "it" seems to be a very light case and we have caught "it" at the very beginning stages. So hopefully we are rid of "it" very soon. I have been wondering when and if this would happen since the 3 year old started preschool. Not sure where she picked "it" up at but hopefully this is the one and only time she gets "it". I had "it" once when I was little and have stayed clear up until a few days ago. And when I heard the word, I cringed and shivered and wanted to tear my hair out. Then I calmed down and thought my head doesn't itch I'm fine ----was that an itch? No it can't be. But I combed through my hair just to be sure and yep sure enough. I have ---- (not gonna say it).

We then began the process of clean up and we haven't stopped yet. I don't know if our vacuum and washing machine can take it. We have been cleaning everyday. I think this is the most use our machines have had without a short break between them. Laundry has not stopped for 3 days now and we have filled the vacuum several times.

I did hear about a giveaway for a new Oreck XL Ultra vacuum cleaner at Crazy Hip Blog Mamas. I think now would be a wonderful time to win a new vacuum cleaner. I'm heading over right now to enter. The giveaway ends on Jan. 31.

By the way, does anyone know of any safe, natural products that work to rid or prevent lice? Better yet, does anyone have any they would like to give me to test and try out?

MP3 Please!

5 Minutes for Mom is having another awesome giveaway courtesy of Best Buy. They are giving away an Insignia® - Pilot 4GB Video MP3 Player with Bluetooth Technology.

I would love to win this and give it to my father.

They are also giving away a pair of behind the head headphones with Bluetooth tech.

Birthday Clubs

Do you belong to any birthday clubs? I have signed up for a few and today in my email I have received several coupons for free meals. You usually have to sign up at the site and provide your name and email, sometimes you have to supply your address as well. You also get put on their mailing lists so if you don't want their newsletters, sign up with a different account and just check that one near your birthday.

Here are a few and what I have received.

Cold Stone Creamery - A free ice cream creation

Bennigan's - A free entree' with the purchase of an entree'

McAlister's Deli - $5 of my meal

Red Robin - A free burger. They also give out sundaes if you let them sing to you

Beaner's (soon to be renamed Biggby) - A free grande drink

Finley's American Grill - If you go to Finley's on your birthday and show them your id you get your choice of a free entree' ( I actually haven't done this in a few years, so I'm not sure if they still do it or not. ) I also think they might be a Michigan only restaurant. I didn't see any other states listed on their website.

Baskin Robbins - One free scoop

Celebration Cinema - Free regular popcorn

Usually you have about a two week window to use the coupons. My birthday isn't until the 18th and most of the coupons expire around the 25th. That gives me plenty of time to use them.

More Boon For You

Wow! I just found another Boon Feeding Gear giveaway. Seven Dogs and a Baby are giving away a Squirt and a Snack Ball. Both of these items would be wonderful to win. We are passed the need for the Squirt but I could see it still being used just for fun by the 3 year old. The snack ball would be perfect for all those dried cereals that I usually put in ziplocks that then get crushed.

To win visit Seven Dogs and a Baby by Jan. 13.

Groovy Plate from Sassyfrazz and Boon

Sassyfrazz is giving away a plate from the new feeding line from Boon. This plate and bowl set features 4 different sections. This is a perfect substitution to those zoo pal plates which my niece is always asking me to buy. I would rather have this plate/bowl set instead. I think she would too.

Head on over to Sassyfrazz to put your name in the hat for a Groovy Plate from Boon. You have until Jan. 17 to enter.
