   My family doesn't really get sick very often but about a week ago it started with the five year old puking all over herself and a soar throat that spread to the two year old with an added dose of green mucous now of course my throat hurts and I have been too tired to get much done and now my hubby is starting to show symptoms of our plague all of course in the first month of my husbands new job so our insurance doesn't kick in for another two months, plus I swear Madeline is trying to score a record of how many objects she can fall off of this year. Luckily it is starting to pass, Madeline is still a little snotty and once I get moving in the morning I am fine. If we can just make it through the next two months without someone breaking a bone we will be great. Ohh I almost forgot about a really cool sample I got via FedEx the other day of Valspar paint. These are still available but you have to go to their website at midnight to sign up for it and you get to choose any color you want and it ships very fast all for free with a paint tray, rollers, and a $5 off coupon for more paint. So you should hurry and grab up this deal before it is gone. I had another one sent to my mums house too :) 
p.s. I thought you all would prefer this picture of my paint sample than a photo of my snot dripping family 


Here's to Another Crazy Year

  Time sure does fly. Christmas turned out amazing all though some of my friends posted on facebook about how their children woke up with wonder and excitement in their eyes but of course my emotional little titans woke up with more of a confused and slightly worried look in their eyes on Christmas morning. Madeline is just 2 so it was all still a bit confusing for her, she opened one present and was done for the day. It was an overall perfect day for our family. Now all of a sudden tax season is here which is uhhhgg... But I'll worry about that later.
  On a different note, I have been following Free Samples on Facebook to get all kinds of notifications on legitimate free samples and high value coupons which has made going to my mailbox so much more exciting these days. But he also has a blog and has listed all the current legitimate instant win games that different companies are running as a promotion. Here is the games link on his blog.  I have been having some pretty good luck lately with these games, recently I have won an Atari throwback game system.

 Which I just received via fedex and have been  kicking butt playing some pong and other highly pixelated games from the past.

    I also won a $25 American Express gift card from the Lintd Lindor Truffles game and a bag of cough drops from Halls and 4 months worth of toaster pastries. I highly recommend taking 10-15 minutes a day while you are on the computer to play these games. Once you fill in your information for a game the first time you only need to put in your email for everyday you play that game after. Of course make sure it is on the site of a brand you trust before entering your info. I have come to trust the Free Samples Blog and facebook fan page when it comes to samples, coupons, and games myself. Do any of my readers have a favorite blog or person they refer to for great deals? I would love to know.
