Counting Minutes... FREE STUFF!!!

As I sit here, I feel that my eyes will hardly stay open. Guess, it's going to be one of those days. Possibly, due to the fact that Lil'Gal woke at 4:00 a.m. and came to my room. She gently slipped her hand in mine and then escorted me quietly to her room to lay with her. Back to sleep we both go. About an hour or so later, she gets up and decides she needs to change from her Jammies. Then, she decides she feels like coloring. I try to coerce her back to bed as we both need our rest. She declines but offers to color in her closet so the light doesn't wake me. Thoughtful. Meanwhile, I'm counting down the minutes for the phone to ring. I have all the information (and more, there is SO MUCH) for one of my articles due this month. I am anxious to jump in and begin writing it. In fact, the intro is already laid out in my mind.
 [Guess I should be typing that instead of this for fear of losing it among the other thoughts in my mind.] But, I'm expecting a phone interview with a physician from the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta for another article due this month.  Phone interview.  Expert.  Article Source.   Don't I sound all, la-ti-da!  :-D
So, I decided to ponder in this post to keep my mind off the clock. Though, I can hear the one in the living room with it's "tick, tick, tick." GIVEAWAYS! I need to post about all the great freebies at Root & Sprout this month! You need to pop in over there and reply to win some stuff! Even if it's not stuff YOU need, you might could gift it to a dear friend who could use it.
What about this?  You could win a $20.00 Fandago Gift Certificate to see Inkheart or the movie of your choice!
Can't beat that, right?  All it takes is a click here, a click there and the word "Inkheart."
This one here is one I want.  The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have.  It's a book that lays out ten priorities of how families can find balance between character and achievement.  It focuses on the child's teacher -- the parent.  In my case, that'd be me.  I always love books that focus on ME.  :-D
Again, all ya' gotta' do is click.
Wanna' learn some Spanish?  
Tada!!!  Here's a beginners Spanish set.  (Just because it's geared toward children, doesn't mean you can't learn a few things yourself.)  ;-)
Me?    Oh yes, I speak a little Spanish.  Well, I can say more than I understand.  
Yo comprendo que me hablo muchos, pero comprendo poquito que me eschuchar.
Clickity on over to Root & Sprout for a chance to win!  There's other stuff over there too this month! [Editor's Note: SWEEEEEEEET!! I just got of the phone from my interview with Dr. Belson who is an expert on the "Choking Game." I'm writing an article on that for the March issue of R&S! He was very kind and forthcoming. If you want the details on the dangers of this -- like I did -- you will want to read this article when it comes out in March!]
Happy Hump-Diggity!

Hmmm, "choking game"??? ... My dirty mind went straight to auto-asphysiation, ala the guy from INXS.

I can't believe we were both up at 4AM . . . although MY 4AM would be your 3AM (are you Central time??). I forgot to put a diaper on Bridget last night and . . . you guessed it. Major pee-pee accident in her bed. I'm STILL doing laundry.

I can't possibly tell you how excited I am about unveiling the new R&S. I'm working on transferring the archives and lining up sponsors (among other things). Not enough hours in the day. Glad to hear your phone interviews are going well!
