You Can Still Get A Free Lunch…..

Standard

Today is Wednesday, the day that MyCokeRewards has its weekly reward deal.

I logged in today and took advantage of a free coupon for McDonald’s Quarter Pounder.

It got me to thinking about all the free things we have received from being a part of the “my coke rewards” program.

So a disclaimer first…..No it is not actually free because we have to buy the cokes first in order to get the rewards….with that being said…. Even without the rewards program, my husband is a coke head….(lol) so we buy a lot of these 12 packs.
Three a week, or more.
Hey, don’t judge he could be drinking a few cases of beer so I will be happy with the coke.

I logged on to the site today and compiled a list of the things we have been rewarded with over the years.

  • A Play Station 2 system – Yes I said PS2 – it was 2006 so the PS2 was still pretty popular back then!
  • A Panini maker
  • A Coke Messenger bag as well as a Sling Back tote backpack
  • A hooded fleece Jacket

I am still alive I swear!

stuff! 007 changed

It has been a few weeks since I posted anything here.

Today marks the 30th day that I have worked on the revision of my manuscript. I am almost at the halfway mark. I am finding it much easier to add and write to the story now that I know how it ends. I can drop hints and snippets of information along the way that make for a better, well rounded story.

I also joined a writers group to workshop my manuscript and I am getting a lot of positive feedback.

I am working on improving my grammar as well.

Between, the day job, the revisions, and the writers group I haven’t had a lot of extra time for blogging.

I am going to make a better effort over the next few weeks to get on here and share my ideas and thoughts with all of you.

Hope all is well in the land of bloggers!
Happy Tuesday!

A Photo Journey – The sleeping child

Standard

 As I took a picture of my daughter last night I realized I have this bizarre addiction to taking photos of her when she is snoozing.

As a newborn she had jaundice so she slept so much that many of those pictures are sleeping. But as she has grown the tendency to take sleeping pictures has not diminished.

So I thought I would present to you my daughter the first 3 years!

The day we came home from the hospital!
