with Mir Kamin
I'm a freelance writer and mother of two working from home, which theoretically means I can set my own schedule so as to best accommodate my family. In reality, "flexible hours" often equals "working too much." Yes, I'm my own boss; no, that doesn't mean life is easy. It's hard to leave the office when you live there. But I love what I do and feel very lucky. And not just because I get paid to work in my pajamas.

I backed everything up yesterday when my hosting company’s server came back online. Every last speck. And do you know why that’s good? Because they’re gone again today! *POOF* This weekend’s server migration cannot come soon enough. I mean, I wasn’t going to do it today because I didn’t want to interrupt my Friday traffic, but I guess TODAY IT IS!
In the meantime, if you’re not already a regular patron of the Amazon Friday Sale, allow me to introduce you to my very favorite part of the week. It will be magical. Bunnies will nestle at your feet and bluebirds will serenade you with gentle songs of thanksgiving. Also, we will likely uncover some killer deals, and as we all know, that’s good for what ails you. Shall we begin?
This Garmin StreetPilot is pretty much the only reason I didn’t give up after one week in Georgia and storm back to where I knew where all the streets were. We call ours Audrey, and she has a British accent. She has yet to lead me astray. I sort of love her. (And yes, that’s a fabulous price.)
I’m also sort of in love with these Skechers flats, not the least of which because they are just begging for a pricematch deal. They’re currently $34.90 at Amazon, but because they’re $72.95 at Zappos, go order them at Zappos and then call in for your pricematch. Your total at Zappos will be $31. (Yeah, it’s only a few more dollars, but every little bit counts. Plus, Zappos has free shipping and free returns—did you know that if you get free shipping on something at Amazon and then return it, you not only pay for return shipping, but they bill you the original shipping? Craziness.)
This is a really nice tent, especially at half price.
Okay, when I read Magic Bullet I really had something else in mind entirely, but, um, this is good, too. Ahem.
I love my stick blender set almost as much as I love my GPS. $19.99 is a phenomenal price for it, and I promise you that once you have one you will wonder how you lived without it. It also makes a can’t-go-wrong wedding gift.
The best SAD light in the world, the end. So little and compact, yet so life-changing. I not only whisper sweet nothings to it all winter long, it’s pretty much the only reason I haven’t had to dip my daughter in ketchup and eat her. (Yes, kids can have SAD. Consult your doctor, of course, but light therapy works for children, too. Amen.)
If you use Cetaphil lotion this is a so-so deal, except for the fact that there’s a spend $59, get $25 back dealie going on for assorted products, which means you could end up saving big if there are more products you need. (And as this promo includes assorted items from about twenty different brands, I guarantee you can find something.)
Happy Friday, everyone!
