$25 Amazon/PP-WW-Try Your Luck March Hop Event-Ends 3/17

Sunday, March 1, 2015



Hi again--time to thank Planet Weidknecht and LeahSay's Views for putting this hop together!! And don't forget to check out the other participating blogs-each blog is offering a prize worth at least $25-you can find the clickable list after the Rafflecopter below.



I can't believe it is March 1st already-it seems like it was just January 1st. Such is the life of a bookkeeper-even a semi retired one-especially with the winter we have been having--I don't remember having to reschedule as many times as I have this year. Every time I THINK I have everything and every one completed-----and then on 4/1 I start all over again!! Is it any wonder my brain is beginning to feel overwhelmed and my cat is beginning to feel ignored? She is NOT being ignored--she only thinks she is!!


This hop ends on St Patrick's Day--so what is at the other side of that rainbow? A pot of gold of course. Well-I can't give a pot of gold but I will be giving one lucky winner either a $25 Amazon GC or $25 PayPal (their choice) This contest is open world wide. Rafflecopter will be choosing the winner--I will email that winner who will have to reply to my email with their choice of prize and the correct email to send it to--easy right? Well so is my Rafflecopter--so go on and enter--may the luck of the Irish be with you!!

Rough start to our year so far. Lots of illnesses in the family, especially my grandsons... and then one of them had to get their tonsils out. I hope things start to get better from here!

It's okay. It could be better. I think I just need the warmer weather to come and I will be less annoyed.

katieoscarlet said...

No, nothing is under control here. Our anxiety levels are up due to a broken pipe outside the house then the furnace going out. Money we don't have to install a new one. New Year not going well so far.

So far, my year has been a roller coaster ride. A lot of ups and downs!

I'm not having a good year. My husband has been in the hospital and my cat is dying of kidney failure. I babysit my two-year old grandson almost full time which keeps me busy and I also take care of my ninety-two year old mother. Reading is the only thing that helps me relax.

I honestly don't know where my year has went. It has flown by and I haven't gotten everything that I need to accomplished. It's pitiful!

I have had a pretty crappy year so far. My daughters friends Mom got killed in a horrific hit and run accident just down the road from the store where I work. Not even a month later the store burned down. I have worked there for years and now I had to sign up for unemployment. I am hoping that this year gets better for everyone.

Tammy Woodall said...

All I can say is I'm taking it one day at a time; otherwise, it would be too over-whelming.
