A Short Post

Well, today's post has taken long enough.  I was exhausted from yesterday, so this morning was spent just lounging around the house.

My Pa's funeral was very nice.  Nothing fancy at all, and not too long.  It was nice that the family spent more time focusing on a great life lived in service to the Lord, rather than the loss of a life.  I learned a few things about him that I did not know, including how his brother, who we called Bubba, led him to the Lord.  I was so touched!

It was great to see all the family.  We haven't all been in one place in a long time, and hope we don't go this long again without seeing each other.  Both of my kids did extremely well, given that they had to wake up at 5:30, and spend 3 hours on the road!  By 8, the kids were asking me if they could go to bed, and Barb Wire Man and I were barely able to keep our eyes open.

I'm still trying to play catch up (yesterday was laundry day, after all!), so this post won't be terribly long.

Since I don't have much to write about, I thought I would leave you with a few things to check out.

Only 11 more followers needed before the Gift Bag Giveaway!  Check out the full rules here, and be sure to tell your friends!

If you haven't already signed up for SwagBucks, do so now!  You can start building up points, and will be just in time for Mega SwagBucks Friday!

Vista Print is one of my favorite companies ever.  I get my FREE business cards there, and for the next 2 days they are also offering 140 FREE address labels!  Yesterday, I ended up with 250 business cards, and 140 address labels, and the only thing I had to pay was the shipping.  THAT's a great deal, especially for those of us who don't have a lot of money to spend!  If business supplies aren't something you must have, they are also offering 6 free photo products.  The kids and I once made a picture book for Father's Day for Barb Wire Man, and he loved it.  Seriously...all you pay is the shipping.  The only thing as good as free SwagBucks is pay-shipping-only Vista print!  Click on either offer you want, or heck, click on them both!

They also extended the Chili's and Quizno's offers!

I pray everyone has a blessed day, and also, thank you to everyone who sent out prayers for my family yesterday.  They were felt, and greatly appreciated!

  1. Glad the funeral went so well!



I enjoy reading every single comment I get, and make every effort to respond to each well as return the favor! I do allow anonymous comments. But, if you use anonymity to hide behind cowardly attacks on my faith or anything else, it will be deleted. Also, if your comment is lewd, vulgar, and full of potty mouth words, I will delete it. Thank you!
