Lions and tigers and scorpions OH MY!!

Well we are getting ready to move into a new home....we are buying a home and now comes the fun part, all the packing.  No biggie, its just a pain in the behind.  But that isnt what this post is all about....does anyone else have issues with scorpions being in their house/home?  What do you do to combat them?  I dont want to use full blown poisons or whatever in case we do get a dog.....so I wanted to use something as natural as i can get.  We have had a lot of them lately....we never see them outside, but we have seen at least 6 of them inside the house lately...of varying size from half an inch to one as big as my hand.....that last one was last night and almost bit hubby, since he was sleeping on the floor and jr almost stepped on it, so i jumped up and took care of it....it wasnt easy!!  They are so fast and you have to whack them several times before you actually kill them!!  I hate killing them i would rather just lay out some kind of repellant....i dont like killing anything if I can avoid it (except spiders, ants and cockroaches) thats another story....Does anyone have any ideas?

Here Goes our first Giveaway...nope its not quite like a contest:

The last contest was fun but we just couldn't get people interested in participating....I see my readership has quadrupled lately based on looking at my page view counter.  This makes me happy, I have also been told by many people  as of late, that many people (even those who dont follow my blog) who have read my blog have really enjoyed reading it and cant wait for my next installment!  That really made me feel good.  I don't do anything fancy, I am juat beng myself and writing about my life, my family, product reviews and recipes, etc.  If you want me to write about something in particular, just let me know, and i will happily write about it.   Give me your input.  If you want to see something that you have not yet seen, just let me know.

I am hosting a giveaway now, let us see if we can get more people involved, interested and active in this one.  I want to keep this one interesting.  I am going to change this from a giveaway to a contest...and in doing this, it will give the people that ae giving out the prizes.  I can't wait to see this prize, it should really be cool.

Here is what the prize entails:  Prize Details:
250 Customizable Stickers for One (1) Winner
2" x 3.5"
70lb Label Matte, Front Only Printing, 4 Business Days Turnaround

I love stickers, and I know lots of people who do.  Stickers are great for kids and adults alike, and stickers are great for those that do scrapbooking, crafting, etc!

The only restrictions is that this contest is for those over the age of 18 and you must be a USA resident.

To give you an idea of what these stickers are like, here are the links:
Customizable Stickers - http://www.uprinting.com/sticker-printing.html
standard label templates - http://www.uprinting.com/print-templates/labels/

I am going to run this contest from Wednesday, 7/20/2011 till Saturday, 7/23/2011.  This will give more people a chance to get involved.  I will be looking for your responses....this is going to be a win for reader #10.

One thing I would like you all to do, if possible, is to "like" us or "follow" the company that is putting out this contest ( it is only fair after all)  The company's name is UPrinting....yes they are on facebook and twitter.  Please follow this great company, and check them out...go to their website, and check out all the different items they have!.  If you do not want to like or follow Uprinting, you can sign up on GiveawayBlogs.

Here is the contest question:  Tell me at least 5 items that this company puts out (it puts out a lot more than that, but tell me at least 5 to qualify for this contest....it is very simple)  You will love the items this company has!
 
I wish you all luck!
