Long time no post

It's been over a month since my last post, and to be honest I just haven't been much in the mood to blog.  Mainly because about a week after my last post, my sweet favorite Aunt Evie, passed away from Lung Cancer.  She struggled with it for three months or so, and then it took her.  I still miss her and when I think about her, I catch my breath, because it hurts to remember that she is no longer on this earth.  BUT I do try and remember that she is with our heavenly father in heaven and is no longer in any pain.

 
this is one of my favorite photos of her.

I am going to try and get back into the groove of posting though.  I've won a few things in this past month, but dang me..I can't remember them very well. LOL.  I know I won a little clutch purse, I think from a magazine, which my daughter promptly took from me! Little Stinker.  This is why I should have started my spreadsheet with my wins listed on them.  I am hoping to make one tonight and it might actually encourage me when I am not winning consistently, and also to remind me to keep entering, because I do win and so you can you.  All you got to do is enter, enter, enter!

While it wasn't a win per say, I did get a gift card in the mail today.  I am so pleased too, as money is a little on the tight side for my family, and it stinks!  I got a $50 Walgreen's Gift card from being a member at MyPoints!  I've actually been a member there for probably five or more years. I've turned in my points, which I get from reading their e-mails and using their links, to purchase stuff from major Retailers online, like K-mart, Sears, Wal-mart, Target, etc etc etc.  It really isn't hard at all...just a little time each and every day, when the emails come in and click a link.  That's it basically.  After a few months, turn in points (similar to Swagbucks) and you have earned yourself a Gift Card.  They offer gift cards to well known places like Target, Walgreen's, Outback Steakhouse, and more.    

Another great thing about MyPoints.com, is that they have sweepstakes!  So it's kind of like killing two birds with one stone!

I am also going to try and add more photos here at "Little Sweeper's Little Corner".  Even though I am not a great photographer, like my husband and BFF, I will give it my best shot.  I will try to add photos of my wins, my friends and family and other interesting tid bits!  I love writing a lot more, can ya tell?  Actually, don't answer that! :P

Well, I am off to create my spreadsheet for my past and future wins. If I can make it possible, I will share it on here, so that you can get an idea if you would like to do it as well.  It makes tax time that much easier, when you have to list how much you've won for Uncle Sam.

Until Next Time
