Hey y'all! I know I said I would be running my four miles this week, but I lied. I have two reason not to.
1) My calves are really sore, and I have to run tomorrow morning for pt, and Sunday is my next 5K, and I'm going to try to get under 28 minutes!
2) We are at minimal manning at work this week, and I feel really bad leaving, and honestly, right now I am too tired after our twelve hour shifts.
So, I'm not allowing myself to feel guilty. I'm kind of going through a stressful time, and I'm just ready to be back in America (to engage in a MORE stressful environment of becoming unemployed, planning a wedding, moving, etc!) and move on with my life. But I'm not going to let my blog become a place of depressed ramblings. :)
I do have something totally fun to share with y'all. I promise I'm not peddling anything! But I know a lot of you use Groupon, and I found another site that is really neat. It's Swagbucks, and you can use the link on the right side of my blog to check it out.
Basically, the premise is you earn "virtual money" by perusing their site. And when you redeem enough, you trade it in for "real" money, or items. Kind of like airline miles, but for the internet. Some of the stuff is kind of silly, but I found an AMAZING deal on there.
You can get a $50 giftcard to Restaurant.com for $20. So you have already saved $30. But. You also earn $450 SB (Swagbucks). You can redeem a $25 dollar giftcard to Restaurant.com for $400 SB. So essentially, for $20 real money, you have got $75 dollars in giftcards. This is especially useful to me, since the venue I am getting married at is one of the restaurants affiliated with Restaurant.com. So, assuming I can use the credit towards the wedding, that will help so much, since it is not a cheap venue at all. If not, then we will try to put it torwards the reception dinner, or use them in Orlando when we go to Disney. Eating off of gift-cards in Orlando helps save a BUNCH of money.
There are other ways of earning SB, even playing games. It's a neat site, and I think you should check it out. :) I just love saving money, and I'm about to be unemployed, so..... You do the math! Haha.
Ok, I'll stop trying to sell you stuff now. Haha. I just like sharing deals! :) I hope everyone has a stellar day! Tomorrow I'll be back to running, so I'll try to take more "sweaty, red-faced" photos for you all! I know how much you guys love it!! :)
