There are a lot of giveaways going on right now, it seems like… Some from me, but also many great ones from others.
Here are a few worth mentioning:
- As For My House is participating in the blog-hopping Carry Me Please! giveaway: winner’s pick of an Ergo or Pikkolo baby carrier. Ends 5/26.
- Simply Stacie is giving away a Keurig B70 Platinum Brewing System ($169 Value!).
- Dear Crissy has a giveaway running for a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
And we’ll be doing a fun children’s book giveaway here next week, so stay turned!

Babywearing can be a wonderful time for both mom (or dad) and baby. For some it is a necessity, for others it is just a way of life.
For whatever reason you wear your little one, you should be able to do it in style!

Although the lab work from the end of last year came back negative, my doctor was just as convinced as I was that the pattern of symptoms was very clear: I likely suffer from some degree of intolerance to gluten.
The only way to find out, really, is to go gluten free and see how you feel – after 4-6 weeks’ worth of vigilance. You have to allow time for all the gluten to be fully purged from your system, then additional time for your gut to heal from the stress and damage.
I began my gluten free diet semi-coincidentally at the beginning of Lent. We don’t observe Lent, but since that was when I was ready to begin anyhow, it seemed a nice symbolic and easy-to-remember date.
Since I was planning to share my reviews of gluten free products and recipes anyway, I decided to put them “out there” in the world a little more. I am now the Biloxi Gluten Free Examiner at Examiner.com. If you click through you can see a page listing everything I’ve published there, as well as subscribing to my feed if that interests you.
In two weeks I’ve learned a lot… In some ways it’s even harder than I thought, but in some ways it has been easier. I’ll keep updating you on my journey – but don’t worry, the focus of the blog isn’t changing. (That’s part of the reason I started posting that content over at Examiner.com).
As For My House will be hosting the Carnival of Homeschooling again next week.
If you blog, I hope you will join is by submitting a post:
- Something old, something new… I do have to draw the line at “something borrowed” though!
- It doesn’t require a “blog about homeschooling” – only a post that’s “on topic.”
In the past, the COH has used the Blog Carnival submission form, but that has not been working properly for the last few months. As a result, they are requesting that all submissions be sent to the carnival’s GMail email address, which is forwarded to each week’s host in turn.
Submissions are due to CarnivalOfHomeschooling@gmail.com by 6:00 PM (PST) by Sunday evening. It will be greatly appreciated if the submissions come in earlier. Please send the following information:
Title of Post
URL of Post
Name of Blog
URL of Blog
Brief summary of the post
(With “carnival” or “submission” in the subject field of the email.)
More details about the carnival, and submissions, are always available from the good folks who run the carnival, “Why Homeschool“.
To help spread the word about the carnival, and get more readers for all of our terrific contributors, you are encouraged to include one of the following icons/links in your submitted post:
Thanks for joining the fun!
And now they’re having an official Launch Party!
You can enter to win an iPad2, or one of two Kindle Fires! (Be sure to list As For My House as “who referred you” — then if you win, I win, too!)
Enter using the form below, but please note that this is RaffleCoptor’s giveaway, not mine. (So if you see this giveaway listed on another blog, or on the RaffleCoptor site, you are already entered!)
We have been in need of a “button” graphic for the blog for a while now.
I am trying to list As For My House on a few sites that have lists of blogs, so that hopefully more people who might be interested can find us. And many of them require a button.
So, given my lack of inspiration, time (prioritized for this type of time-intensive activity), and graphic design skill, I took the quick route: I cropped the graphic from our header, and scaled it into the proper dimensions.
It’s a button, at least.
But anyone who can do a better job is invited to come up with something!
