Freshening the Home the Efficient Way

Okay, so BzzAgent is this AWESOME website/company that works with people and word of mouth. They set up campaigns for other companies that are trying to get their product out and heard of. For example: Glade contracted BzzAgent to have their agents (yes, seriously, we're called agents) try out two of their new products. Those of us agents that were invited to the campaign were sent coupon booklets that contained two coupons for free products just so that we could try it out and form an opinion. We don't have to like what we try out, but we do have to share our opinion with others and then document it. So here goes.

I, Hannah, am a BzzAgent. I received, for free, coupons that allowed me to get a free Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist and Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser. (To be honest, I've only gotten the Oil Diffuser so far.) And let me just tell you that I LOVE it! The Oil Diffuser, I mean.  My husband picked up the white one for me in Lavender & Juniper Berry. This thing isn't very big, but the scent seriously carries throughout my entire house and I've got it upstairs in my bedroom. By the way, I've got a big house. Anyway, the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser comes in three different scents (Lavender & Juniper Berry, Pineapple & Mangosteen, and Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice) and in two different colors (white and bamboo).

All that said, if you happen to be looking for a new way to freshen your homes, you should totally try these out. AND...if you DO want to try them out, send me a private message with your address and I'll send you coupons for money off when you buy them.  *grin*

Oh, and if you'd like the opportunity to try out new product for free...join BzzAgent yourself. It's definitely worth checking out.

It's been a long time and SO much has happened

First, four months!?! I'm getting really quite bad at this. I'll try to do better, but we all know that it probably won't last long. At least I have a good excuse now. I'm a Mom! Finally!

Selene Marie was born on May 31st at 1:18pm via emergency C-section. I'll write out her whole birth story in a later blog. Just want to get the info out just now. I have to admit that it's hard to believe that in less than a week she will be two months old already. Then again, there are days when I'm surprised it hasn't been longer. I was told at my baby shower back in April that once Selene (then still Squishie) was born, I wouldn't be able to imagine life without her. Well, when she was first born, that wasn't true, but it sure is now!

Because one of my ultimate goals in life is to be a stay at home mom, Joseph and I have been looking into moving out of our house and most likely into an apartment until we find the perfect home for the perfect amount of money that Joseph will be able to afford on just his salary. Might take us some time, but we're going to make it work and I can hardly wait.

Since we'll hopefully be selling and moving in the next few months, I've been slowly going through all of our belongings and packing up those that we're definitely keeping and piling up those that we're going to sell or give away. It's been a process, let me tell you. I knew we had alot of stuff, but the sheer amount of it gives me a headache some days. At the same time, it is SO hard for me to get rid of some things. Things that I don't use anymore, I just can't bear to see them go just yet. Suppose I'll be packing them up for now and maybe I'll be able to get rid of them when we finally find our next house. *shrug* We'll see.

Anyway, that's all I've got for now. I need to get back to packing up my maternity clothes and going through all my clothes that I packed away throughout my pregnancy so I can find some clothes that fit. No use spending money on clothes if I don't absolutely need to. Talk to ya'll again soon!

Famous Last Words

Nice doggie.
I can do that with my eyes closed.

Well, we've made it this far.
That's odd.

Don't be so superstitious.

Theory Student's Nightmare

I think that I shall never be
Conductor of a symphony!
A band of players so elite
Would cringe each time I tapped the beat.

In concert black with white baton,
I'd stare out pop-eyed at the throng.
With shaking knees and sweaty palms,
I'd raise my stick & bring it down.

At once the flutes began too shrill -
The violins joined with a will
WAIT! That's a rest! WHY do the play?
I knew that this was not my day.

I peered at my conductor's score.
I flipped a page and then three more...
Compound meters, triple beats,
C-clefs, solos, hordes of keys!

The deafening din of snare drums' rattle
Reminded me of stampeding cattle.
They must be stopped before the crowd
Revolted in an ugly battle!

I yelled at them with all my power
Then woke to my floorleaders glower.
"Did you forget?

~ A. Nonnymous (a PCC student)
