Contests and Sweepstakes- updated as needed

(Be aware that some of these links I post may be referral links to earn me extra entries)
I love to enter contests and sweepstakes on the Internet. I keep looking for an easier way to do them without having to pay so I think I am just going to set up a webpage so I can sort them by ending date easily.  Pick how many entry options you want to enter, the more you enter the greater the odds of winning.  The majority of my giveaways are book release tours because they usually give Amazon gift certs as the prize and that's my favorite prize.  There are a ton that want you to subscribe to newsletters I usually don't subscribe so don't get credit for that option. Be aware that you will get a lot of email. You have to check your email frequently because normally most contests only give you 24 hours to respond or they pick someone else.  Most are short entry periods but sometimes they are months long.
It can take up to 6 weeks to get your prize, Save the email notification you won and if you haven't gotten your prize in 6 weeks, email the person again to check on the prize. Most prizes won't ship to a PO Box 
To increase your odds make sure you have the following entry means(I would appreciate any follows)
  1. Twitter (follow me for contests that I tweet and may not post here.)  A lot of contests want Twitter follows but Twitter limits how many you can follow so I go through about every 3 months and delete any old ones I don't currently need to follow - like authors from previous giveaways. 
  2.  Instagram ( follow me
  3. Pinterest (follow me)
  4. Bloglovin (follow me)
  5. Facebook (like my page) usually you just have to visit and sometimes comment. Its against Facebook rules to require a like but some do. 
  6. Goodreads (follow me)  there are a ton of books on my want to read list that I really don't want to read and would never read but hey its an entry. Sometimes you also get an entry for following the author on Goodreads. 
  7. Bookbub- once again beware because every author you follow, if they publish a new book you will get a notification email)

This is not all the giveaways out there, just the ones I am interested in.

What I say:
 I really wanted to try these because there isn't a good lighting situation over my kitchen sink. However I was just not happy with the whole deal from start to finish. It took almost 2 weeks to get the lights. The lighting wasn't very bright at all and didn't last that long. The ones I put over my kitchen sink needed new batteries within a week of using them.  It was a good price for them but I would rather pay more and get a better quality product.  Of course there is the possibility that I just got a bad batch because they got great reviews on Amazon.

I suggest you order a set of your own to try and see how they work for you since they are only $7.99

So far this year isn't shaping up as great as I had hoped it would be. Its been super cold and snowy a lot. My water lines were froze for days.  The toilet has been frozen and then got backed up and have to have a new line put in.  A man from my hometown community died. He was just the nicest man and always smiling and so friendly. I was very disappointed because the person responsible for his arrangements was selfish and lazy and did absolutely nothing. Not even graveside services. This man was a veteran who earned a purple heart and touched so many lives and yet nothing was done to show respect for him. Just dumped in the ground. Fortunately a friend of his did bug the funeral home enough that he found out when he was being buried and showed up at least. I thought surely the church he had attended for my whole life would at least have a memorial service but they did nothing.

I was wheezing pretty badly the past couple of days but other than that I felt the same as usual. Yesterday at work I started to notice some pain and discomfort on my right lung side. The longer the day went the worse it felt. I hadn't been sick at all but it felt like I have felt in the past when I had pneumonia. Sure enough, after work I went to MedExpress and got a chest xray and I have pneumonia in the right lung. So I took off work today to rest and I do feel slightly better. Not as much pain but still tired.  Hoping for a speedy recovery.

Colder than Alaska

So far this year has been colder than most. It has been down to -2 and the windchill has been -17. Its so cold that my water has been froze for days. The roads are slick as snot.  Even the Kanawha river has froze over. People have been posting pictures of driving 4 wheelers on it. Of course I expect one of them is going to end up crashing through the ice.  Even the water at work froze over yesterday.  Today it is up to 9. The weather channel claims that by Monday its going to start being in the 30s for the next week. I am hoping every thing melts up so I can get the laundry and the dishes all done up.

Its been pretty sad, I have heard of at least 2 people being froze solid and a few pets. One poor dog was chained in his dog house but the fool owner didn't have a lick of bedding in it or nothing. I have worried about the stray cats I feed. I can't bring them in because the dogs aren't good dogs when it comes to cats. I rigged up some tarps around the porch to block wind and then i cut a whole in a storage tote and put blankets in it for them. I read that they need extra food when its so cold so I have been giving them a bunch of dry food but also canned cat food, tuna etc..So far it appears to be working, They are still alive and active after about 10 days of this deep deep freeze.

Starting over again, yet again

Its been ages since I posted. My health has just been so awful. I feel like I am in constant intense pain and barely able to move most days. I am so tired of living this way so I am going to make some health changes for the upcoming year. One of the biggest is that I am going back on the low carb diet. I really need to lose weight but that's not my reasoning for choosing this diet. When I am on the low carb diet after about 4 days or so, I am almost totally pain free. All the swelling in my hands, feet and legs is gone. The only place that hurts is my lower back and hip but they are way more bearable.  And since its a new year, my insurance starts again so I can go to the chiropractor again for 12 visits. I am going to go once a week and then when those visits are done then I am going to go every 2 weeks since I will have to pay myself.

So today is the first day for me even though its not the new year yet.  So far I have only had water to drink. I didn't really have time for breakfast so I snacked on string cheese. Lunch is cheeseburger salad.

Cheeseburger Salad
3/4 cup cooked crumbled hamburger
baby spinach
shredded cheese
ranch dressing

I didn't put amounts because it really depends on how much of each you want in there. I don't like lettuce so I prefer to put baby spinach in my salad and I like a lot of tomato and cucumber. Then I sprinkled shredded cheddar cheese over the whole thing and add a dollop of dressing. Yummy and filling since it has meat and veggies.

Say a prayer for me that I can stick with this considering how much it helps my health.
