Friday Fog and a Giveaway

For some strange reason, I am still operating a little "off" this week.

You may have sensed that from almost every post I have posted this week.

Thanks for not commenting on it.

But for now, I am going to blame it on the weather.

Since I don't drink and therefore cannot blame it on the a-a-a-alcohol.

(In reality, I should probably blame someone who kept me up until 11:30 last night because he wanted to spend time together after his side job kept him out late last night....  Yeah.  Thanks for wanting to spend time with me, honey....)

Today I woke up to my backyard looking a little like this....

And alot like this...

Except without the sidewalk, street, streetlamp and random strangers walking....

You get what I'm saying, right?

So yeah, the weather has me a little off-beat.

And we won't talk about my negative success on the scale this week.

Which was none too surprising, considering my 4 day weekend of food binging.

Funny how negative success equals a positive on the scale when really what I wanted was a negative on the scale, which leaves me feeling a little negative today. 

But then I went home at lunch to find a little surprise in my mailbox.

Purex sent me a sample of their new Purex Crystals Fabric Softener.

First of all, I am COMPLETELY thrilled because despite how many times I have put fabric softener on my shopping list, I have forgotten it for the last 3 months.

Which means that for the last 3 months, my jeans have felt like this....

And now thanks to Purex, I get to remember what it was like to have fresh smelling and SOFT clothes again.

I am really excited to try them for other reasons, though.

Like the fact that it is made of natural materials

And isn't oil-based, which means techy's shirt won't end up with that grody residue after 3 washes. 

Woo to the Hoo!

My initial concern was that it would not be compatible with my front-loading, high-efficiency washer, but leave it to Purex, who solved my vacation laundering woes this past summer with their Complete 3-in-One Sheets*, to ensure that they are indeed HE compatible. 

Here's where you come in. 

Since we all love doing laundry...

Oh wait, did I really say that out loud?

Clearly, I misspoke.

What I meant to say is, "Since we all love anything that will make doing laundry better, cheaper, fresher-for-longer..."

I am offering one of my lucky readers the opportunity to enjoy a free FULL-SIZED bottle of Purex Crystals along with me.

The catch?

Free stuff is waiting on you!

*Flying to a remote destination with a baby and a limited supply of clothing equals about 10 loads of laundry in one 7 day time frame.  However, flying also equals no transporting liquids, meaning that the only laundry detergent I could buy on vacation that I could take home with me would be a messy powder or Purex's sheets.  I was skeptical at first, and then I fell in LOVE!  Thankyouverymuch, Purex, for making vacation laundering EASY PEEZY.

Well, this is one way to ensure people comment on your blog. However, it's a little on the desperate side, isn't it Leah?? Are you trying to bribe me with laundry detergent? Really?
