Of Giveaways and Tradeaways

For those who didn't win my last giveaway (that would be 99% of you), Karen Mcquestion is kindly hosting one for me right now. I'll put it to you this way: your chances are pretty good if you enter—just leave a comment over at her blog. Organic Enchilada, I'm looking your way.

Check out Karen's books while you're there.

As for me, Christmas took a sad turn. The poor Gummybear has been coughing and rashing for weeks now. The doc said it was probably caused by something recently introduced into the environment. Oh, I don't know, like a spruce Christmas tree? Yeah, getting rid of the evergreen just before Christmas was killer. Luckily, we knew someone who was jonesing for a real tree and traded us for an artificial one.

I miss the smell of real pine in the house at Christmas time, but I much prefer having a happy toddler. That's a trade I'd make, any day.


  1. Poor gummy bear. The same thing happened to me when I was little. But cheer up, after I was about eight or nine I got over it and we were able to have real trees again.

  2. I hope so. The poor kid is soooooo miserable. :(

  3. Toddler for a real tree? Great swap. :-)

  4. I'm all over it. And too bad about the tree. Fake ones are so...fake. :) But you're right - rash-free toddlers are totally worth it.

  5. Good luck.

    There will be no better chance to win my book than this giveaway. :)

  6. Dude. I won your book! I am so excited I won't be able to sleep! I can't wait to read it!

  7. @Bethany
