Need to get an entire trailer park and move my whole world around!

Husband has me packing up the entire house, or so it seems. He is on this kick to remodel before spring. He didn't go into work yesterday, so he started building me shelves in the living room, and a set up to light the room. The living room didn't come equipped with a central lighting system, unlike the rest of the rooms in house.

The packing is going interestingly. I am well aware now, that I lack the appropriate dusting skills when it comes to our decorative sentimental junk. Guess I just found my New Years resolution. We found all kinds of niffty things squirreled away and hiding under a foot of dust. Luckily I haven't found anything to creepy like dead animals or luggage from city mouse's visit.

Speaking of luggage, I have a $125 gift certificate from CSN (and it isn't just for their luggage stores) burning a hole in my pocket. What to do with it? I could keep it, or I could try and buy your love and give it away. hhmmm. . . what to do. . . CSN does have over 200 stores to pick from.

Give it away of course!

Now then, what kind of hoops should I make you jump through to get it.

tell me how much you love me, Leave a comment.

For extra chances to win,

link to me from you social media page (blog, facebook, etc.) for 1 extra entry. (more than one? then you get more than 1 entry)

and for every person that claims you sent them here to enter, you get your name dropped in the hat again.

Or you can post a picture of yourself dressed like city mouse doing a country mouse activity and I will give you 5 entries. Pick your poison.

(US and Canada only, sorry guys. Will work on getting the rest of you some sort of contest)

I will draw a name this Saturday. Good Luck!

I'm on a kick to comment more frequently, so I would say something today without the lure of a prize, but who am I look a gift horse or a dusty mouse in the mouth?

Good luck with the remodeling.

Awesome! Of course I will link to you on my blog and does tweeting count ['cause I don't do bloggy stuff on facebook. Come to think of it I don't do much on facebook. lol]

Hope you all are staying warm.

Sounds like the hubby is on a roll, huh?

You never know when these construction fits will happen, so encourage him and make the best of it!

Nice to have such a handy guy around, isn't it!

You have a good day!

Sounds like your house is in as much a state of chaos as mine is these days. :) I don't think my husband and I ever got ourselves completely unpacked when we moved in three months ago...and now we've got to get everything ready for April, when we're expecting our first baby! Here's to a quick and minimum-stress process for your family, and ours! :)

Best wishes on the remodel. I enjoy your blog. Mine isn't nearly as exciting, but here's the link: http://agrovenstein.blogspot.com/ More or less my pursuit of a more simple life. Regards.

I think I'll just stick to the comment for an entry. Although dressing up like a city mouse has its advantages. lol

I'm sitting here looking around my apartment and thinking about what a pain in the neck it's going to be to pack all of this junk up when we move (we're hoping to put an offer in on our first home in the next couple of weeks). I hope the remodeling goes smoothly for you!

Coming out of my hiding spot to comment :)

Still love your blog, even after all these years!

I'm in the middle of Winter cleaning also and trying to get my kids on board

What a great blog, I am linking to you from my blog. Glad to hear about the shelves and the new lighting. Construction sure does create chaos but the result sure is nice. Keep up the good work.

Wow, your so generous. Count me in, I will link you to my facebook. I love reading your blog.

Well, I read all the time but almost never comment. See what prize envy will drive a man to?

Parker said...

I have written a few comments, I read all the time (yay, you are back!), and I *love* looking at your pictures. You are years ahead in a version of my own longed-for lifestyle. I'm without the handy and loving husband, but have a grown son who wants to help me. So fewer mouths to feed but much less and help. Thank goodness for the Internet for company, instruction and entertainment!

Parker said...

Oh, and drooling over the tools store at CSN right now :) Dang I never win these things, but it sure is fun to make up wish lists!

Alissa said...

I was so happy to see you posting again :)
