Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

Well it’s official. I’ve been coughing up lungs due to a slight case of pneumonia. I knew asthma was giving me a hard time, but the pneumonia diagnosis was a bit of a surprise. Thankfully the doc gave me a breathing treatment and I am already SO much better! That oxygen is handy stuff. Do you use it often?

Stay tuned over the next days and weeks for some neat giveaways! The blog has been getting more and more attention lately, and that translates into prizes for you, Internets! I love giveaways. First one’s tomorrow, so if you’ve got young-ish kiddos, be sure to stop by and enter.

I haven’t done a Heroes In Parenting entry for a few months. Not to worry, it’s still as important as ever to me, but I’ve been revamping the plans in an attempt to make it better. Details out on that by the end of the month. I hope.

Spammers have been getting creative with hilarious jokes of late and I’m usually sorry to have to delete the comments. One gem from today: Did you hear about the cannibal who was expelled from school?

He was buttering up his teacher.

Bwahahahahaaaa! If only it wasn’t connected to an advertisement for items that I don’t care to highlight on the blog.

My post over at GNMParents (now ForeverParenting)went up again on Monday, and it’s an update on how things are going with sweet Keely. Plus there’s a new pic of her with the article.

Also! I got included in the Carnival of Homeschooling this week. Hopefully some more people will start playing on the Fun for Your Friday posts. Hint, hint!

Aaaaand with that, I’m off to write a few contest posts, look at some guest posts, and in general do work related to posts. The older boys and I invented a new game today in Latin that I can’t wait to share with you.
