Flipped, Turned Upside Down

My whole life has changed quite a lot over the past three years. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in the spring of 2007 and have never been the same since. Not long after the illness hit me, I had to sell my house, partly because, being a single mom with a very small income, I could not keep up with the repairs. I moved into an apartment where I lived for the past two years. Just last month, I moved again.

All these events have pushed back the things I want to do and forced me to concentrate on the things I have to do. Any posting on the blog had to wait until after all activity settled down. And while my life is certainly not the way I would like it to be, it is calming down enough to allow me to focus on those things I want to do.

Recently, in between the packing, cleaning, doctor appointments, unpacking, doctor appointments, cleaning, etc., I found a whole blog world full of giveaways! Who knew that you could win gift cards, vacuum cleaners, iPods, tote bags and a host of other items just for filling out a form, tweeting, blogging, etc.?! On occasion, I'd like to share some of those giveaways here.

The giveaway I entered today can be found at a blog called Trying To Stay Calm. She's giving away an Oreck Steam-It, which appears to be a really useful product from Oreck that disinfects and deep cleans. The giveaway ends on Tuesday, March 19.
