It's official, I'm a fossil

I've mentioned it before and I'll say it again, I'm such a technical laggard. I remember learning that term in high school and thought, "How lame!" Well, hello lame. I mean, look at my blog. There are so many super cute blogs out there. I've got the *house blog.* You know, the cheapest, most generic blog available. (Side note: I had to train Steve to order the *house wine* when we are out. He used to say, "Yeah, can I get your cheapest glass of Merlot? It would embarrass me to no end. That was just a bonus for 'ya. You're welcome.)

Back to my *house blog*: It's mostly because I'm not creative, partly because I'm too cheap to pay to have someone design it and slightly because I wouldn't even know WHERE to begin re-designing it. Plus I like to live by a simple little motto which states, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

I was reading some blogs today and I came across one that encouraged me to join SwagBucks. I've seen it on my friends' Facebook pages for months now. Someone sent me an invite a while ago and it intimidated me and so I didn't look into it.

Call it boredom. Call it a whim. Call it a rainy/stormy day getting the best of me. Whatever its called, I signed up for SwagBucks this afternoon. Now, I'm pretty sure there is a way I can promote it here on this blog and get some extra *bucks* but honestly, I don't know how. Nor am I sure you want to get a commercial from me. Perhaps once I *start* I won't be able to stop. I guess I haven't officially started yet, then, 'cuz I don't feel super committed.

I mean I've got coupons to clip, a blog to write, a house to clean, Facebook to keep up on. Oh and then there's those kids who live here and need parented. Do I really need *one more thing* to obsess over? Well, here goes.

If you have any SwagBucks advice you would like to pass along, I'm all ears. In the meantime, I've got to go tune up my Walkman and dust off the VCR; It's gonna be a long rainy day.

I love your blog! Don't change it! I, as well, have not gotten away by myself (or even WITH my kids!) in the past five years. I should start a blog about how it sucks to be dirt poor. So for now, your blog is my 3 minute bed and breakfast getaway on a semidaily basis :)
