Win a $100 Home Depot Card

Both Home Construction Improvement and Today's Green Construction have a giveaway for a $100 Home Depot card Ends 6/20/09

It would sure come in handy, we've started a container garden this year and could use more pots and supplies. Edit: As I was sitting in front of the BBQ, I think an extra propane tank and two gauges will come first.

Win a $250 Visa

Win $250 Visa Gift Card sponsored by Capri Sun and BlogHer. Only one entry per household. In this case I don't know if it's one entry across all the blogs or one entry each, so I'm going with one entry each. All winners will be from a random draw. Ends 7/8/09 *Under 100 entries at time of this post
Now for my entry

I don't really have a morning routine since I got laid off, it's been totally shot to hell. My son is grown and no longer living at home, and my roommate, disabled from a stroke, sleeps in, so I don't have to worry about anyone else.

When I am employed, I get up at 4. One of the first things I do is get get my cup cup of coffee and put my dog Garth out.

I use this quiet time to check email and enter sweepstakes. Then I get ready for work and straighten the house a bit. I'll usually check email once more and browse the web a little, and check out the online version of the local paper. Since I have a tendency to loss track of time, I have an alarm (still set) on my phone for 7:20 letting me know I have 10 minutes to get my shoes on and get out the door.
