A contest!!

I am excited to share a fun opportunity with you!

To celebrate the release of Hearts at Home’s newest book: Living With Less So Your Family Has More, by Jill and Mark Savage, the Hearts at Home blog is launching the Living with Less Contest.

Email Hearts at Home a story or money-saving tip that gives a peek into your daily experiences representing the humor, richness, or spiritual aspects of what it’s like to live with less.

Better yet, blog readers will benefit as many of the money-saving entries will be posted on the Heart’s blog throughout the month of February!

To fill you in on where I have been the past week..things around here have been crazy.   Natalie has been sick since Wednesday with an upper respiratory infection possible pneumonia.  She had a fever on Wednesday that we couldn’t get to break.  Natalie never get’s fever’s so we knew she was really sick.  It finally broke around 9 pm.  The doctors put  her on some heavy antibiotics that seem to be working and she is feeling much better.  She is such a trooper.  This morning she was all smiles.  I told her she was staying home from school again..than the laughs came. 

We have a fun weekend planned.  We are taking the girls to the library to read with therapy dogs.  The kids get to be with one of the dogs for 15 minutes reading to them.  I can’t wait to get some pictures.  Phoebe has been practicing.   I also can’t wait to see how they act with Natalie.  Most of the dogs we have encountered are really good with her.  I have been told that dogs have a sense for kids like Natalie.  They are so calm and gentle, sometimes just sitting right next to her wheelchair or lying down at her feet.  Adorable and of course she eats it all up.  After the library trip we are heading to the Children’s Museum.  We always have a good time there and it allows Phoebe to burn off some energy and use her imagination.  On Sunday we have church and than are off to get some fried chicken and have lunch with friends we haven’t seen in a while.  Fellowship, friends, fried chicken with all the sides…can life get better? 

Have a blessed weekend.  Can you believe January is almost over..slow down 2010!
