New home and new furniture

Rob and I have to find a new home, which has been far more difficult than one would think. What has been much easier than finding a new home is daydreaming about a new one. Or more specifically daydreaming about what it would be like to buy some actually new furniture for the house.

So I’ve been cruising through Become.com and trying to see what I could find that I liked. I keep finding myself looking at the…oddest things. Things I don’t need. But I’m drawn to them nonetheless. 🙂 (lol)

Like a bunch of glass dessert bowls. I don’t need any dessert bowls. Lord knows my Boys are Hell on glassware of any kind. (Not to mention the dog who has taken to breaking dishes to get at food. Because you know we starve her to death. *insert eye roll here*) But still I’ve been checking them out for some odd reason.

Or the comforter set burgundy, which okay I could actually use a new comforter set. Especially one that’s not a cheapie set from Wal*Mart or something. And yeah, burgundy would off-set the pink shade I want to paint the walls (if we end up stuck here) really well. But even though we need it, it’s not something we have to have, ya know?

And finally, there are these antique white nightstands, which honestly I don’t even know why I’m drawn them. We don’t need them. As of right now, I don’t have anywhere to place them. And the way I want to decorate our bedroom, they really wouldn’t fit in at all. But they are gorgeous in their own right.

Free Play Banner at Right

So you may have noticed that the banner at right has changed. It no longer has to do with the “Snack that Makes You Smarter”. Now it’s a banner for Winster.com. It’s a gaming site where you get to play for free!

It’s all pretty simple and straight forward.

  • You click the Banner on the Right.
  • That takes you to a Slot Machine type game, which you play.
  • You win points towards “Gift Shop Coupons”.
  • They also ask for a:
  • Username
  • Email address
  • First name
  • Then you click “PLAY FREE” and begin playing.
  • As long as you are a female, age 35 or over and live in the United States of America, I earn 70¢. I know it doesn’t sound like much and realistically it isn’t; however, if enough people click-through and qualify then it will add up. And that “adding up” could make all the difference at some point to my family. (Especially between my mounting medical bills and the gas prices now that we need to get Gavin up to Akron Children’s Hospital at least once a month for his infusions.)

    So yeah, if you could click-through, that would be amazing and we would appreciate it so much! (Or if you want to click one of the Banners below. Either one. 🙂 Thank you so much for your support!)
