  • Midday Coffee: Why am I SO busy?

    I knew being home wouldn’t be a walk in the park, but I can’t believe how busy I have been this week! I had plans to go through the accumulated piles of stuff to donate so that I could itemize them and drop them off at Goodwill, but that just hasn’t happened – and it doesn’t look like I’m going to have time this week at all. Maybe next week!

    Last week, I posted about Amazon Mom, which is Amazon’s new incentive program for caregivers. It comes with a free three-month Amazon Prime membership, which gets you free two-day shipping on most things sold directly by Amazon, and because it’s not a free trial, you won’t need to cancel anything. Awesome!

    1. Thanks for the tip on the Clorox coupon. BTW do you read A Good American Wife? She had a recipe for corn pesto (yes, that's right, corn) that I bet your family would like. http://goodamericanwife.blogspot.com/2010/09/pesto-chango.html

      Thank you! You're right, that recipe sounds just up my alley!
