update from a slacker

I feel like I dropped out of the blog world for awhile. A combination of things have kept me from blogging so this will be the update

First of all about two weeks ago I received an e-mail from my sister-in-law Kari with info on how to make some money from home and in my limited computer time I have been doing surveys for GPT sites (get paid to sites) and getting paid for them It is a great way to make a little extra cash. Perfect timing since Christmas is right around the corner.

I decided to blog about it because I thought it might be something other stay at home moms or students might be interested in doing. It is really easy and you can do as much or as little as you want to. Which I think is nice since right now with two little ones I am more on the little end. Most sites also pay you for referrals so you can refer family and friends that might be interested and make a little from their efforts. Foote fills out surveys while he is on hold with banks at work and has made about 40.00 in a week of just hold time which isn't a lot but can add up over time.

Kari has put together some great information of tips and tricks to use on GPT sites and it has been so easy to follow. It is to long to put in a blog so if you are interested or want more information just leave a comment with your e-mail address or e-mail me and I will send it to you.

second, our house has also been in pieces we were having our floors redone so we had all our furniture in the garage for about a week between tearing out the old floor and installing our new wood floor (yeah!). Aly thought it was great to have the furniture in the garage and loved to hang out on the furniture in the garage more than she does when it is in the house. We also put in some new furniture including a new 50 inch plasma TV that Foote received as a bonus for closing three houses with the same builder. (alright Foote!) Its kind of funny we are still in our townhouse so it looks a little out of place, but no complaints here.

And last week was Halloween and between parties, trick or treating and putting my house back together I was lacking in blogging motivation.

Halloween was a lot of fun Aly went dressed as a Lady bug and Brooklyn was a cow. We went to a tri-ward trunk or treat. I have to say I love the trunk or treat concept it is like the Readers Digest version of trick or treating, it's trick or treating with half the work and time. I couldn't help but feel a little cheated that we didn't have trunk or treating when I was a kid trick or treating, we actually had to work for our candy going to each door individually.
