It's a New Day and a Giveaway!


First and foremost, I want to thank you all for your kind words from a few days ago. I was having one of those, "Wow...I really suck at this stay at home mama thing" moments. Your encouragement, support, words of wisdom and empathy were much needed and heard.



I'm relieved that I seem to be back on track. The Boy is feeling better. We made it through the, I'm-feeling-marginally-better-but-I'm-still-sick-enough-to be-cranky stage and we've moved onto the What-can-I-get-into/help with/mess up-now stage. The sink is cleared of dishes, there's laundry in the wash, and lunch is planned. The floor isn't swept, the beds aren't made (but they rarely are) and I think I forgot to feed the dog last night, but all in all the world has righted itself again.


Because you all have given so much to me over the past 2 years, I want to do something in return. I'm holding my 3rd giveaway. Up for grabs is a $50 gift certificate to my Etsy store, Green Baboon Designs. Shipping is on me. Please make sure I have a way to contact you either through your own blog, or leave your email address. Email addresses can be left as JaneDoe at gmail dot com so that spammers and the like can't pick them up automatically.

There are four ways to enter.

2. Leave a comment on this post. Any comment. Tell me what you're going to have for dinner, what your favorite book is, how your spring garden is taking shape.
3. Sign up for Swag Bucks under my referral link. If you don't know what that is, see this post. If you've already signed up under my referral link, just leave a message letting me know.
4. Blog/Tweet about this giveaway. Come back here and leave a link to the blog or tweet.

Giveaway is open until Friday, Feb. 25, 2011 at 12:00 noon PST. Winner will be announced Saturday, Feb 26th and chosen via a random number generator. Giveaway open to all - including overseas readers.

With much gratitude in my heart for all of you,
Simple Mama

  3. As for dinner - Sesame Garlic Chicken w/veggies over brown rice. Favorite book - depends entirely on what I have read recently. Last month I read all of the Chronicles of Narnia and LOVED them. I can't believe I didn't read them as a kid. Spring Garden - well it is under snow and entirely imaginary. If by gardening you mean spring recitals of which I have 3. They are coming along splendidly and I tend to them religiously in the practice room. Full of lovely spring like composers such as Villa-Lobos, Argento, and Spohr. I'm finding they are the rhubarb of gardening, tart with the potential to be quite sweet!
