Bloggy Carnival is taking over my life

It's day three of the Bloggy Carnival. There were over 1200 different giveaways on the list last time I checked, about 3 minutes ago. I check every 3-5 minutes, on average. Yesterday I was out for a few hours in the afternoon with Ethan, then we went to get Daniel at work and out to dinner. So I'd been away from the computer for 5 hours by the time I got home, and had to rush to get back to contest ordering. Daniel just stared at me. I commented that I was a little obsessed, and he said that he had noticed :) I assured him that it will end soon, so I will return to being useful then. Or more useful at least.

But last time I won a flip video camera and a nice leather journal, so I know the time and effort can pay off! And I try to only enter contests where I really like the prize, so winning any of them would be good.

As of last night, they were considering ending life support for Daniel's uncle. So it looks like it's just a matter of time now. Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts. It was interesting, yesterday I was looking in the paper for Mississauga, Ontario, where Uncle and Aunt live, and found an article about Uncle's accident on the front page. Last May, when my great-aunt was killed in a plane accident, that was all over the paper and the news here. I told Daniel last night that we really needed to stop having publicized family tragedies.

I need to go be productive at work now. For a little while. Then back to the giveaways. :)

This morning I had to tell myself STERNLY that the chores must come before the giveaways. :)

Thanks for entering mine!
