Reciprosity

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Leo Buscaglia


This weekend has been sooo fun... For the key reason that you all are AMAZING!! The comments have been flowing in for the Pearls of Wisdom Shorts Giveaway HERE. Our friend Marlene reminded me this morning that we are at 175!!! Hello this is stinkin cool.. So I have decided to Change the Rules...and give away 2 pairs of shorts.... Yes folks 1 medium and 1 large.. So go and comment and end the contest..

I love contests because I get to meet all sorts of new Bloggers to add to my Blogroll. I really try to drop in and return the comments, but there are times when the comment boxes don't work.. So I want to send a Tall Mom virtual hug to:


  • Britt at The Miles of a Mommy thanks for the link to my Giveaway, I would love to drop you a return comment but the box would not work.
  • Shelly at Swim, Bike, What? Thanks for the link and your GREAT comments. I hopped over to your blog to say "Hi" and no go.. Will stop back in and HOPE I can get the comment to work.
  • Caitlin at Former Running Junkie I am ready to be your 1st Follower... but the Blog won't let me?? I recently tossed my mesh shorts from the 90's and hope you can do the same with your Umbros :)

I REALLY try to return comments...because that is the fun of Bloggy land for me as I am sure it is for you all... I LOVE to meet new people and hear what everyone has to say. There are days when I get BUSY and may miss a reply here or there, but overall Tall Mom will return the comment. FYI I don't look for replies on your Blog, so if you can reply in a comment on Tall Mom that would be GREAT!!

Got up late....off to work from HOME!! Oh thank goodness I am working from home today. Hopefully we can get 25 more comments so those shorts can be in the mail to the WINNERS today!!!

****FYI if you want to get some nuun head over to Marlene's Blog and try to WIN HERE

Thanks for the shout-out, Mel!

Bummer about those comment issues. I've had that happen now and again. So frustrating when you want to return the comment-love!

Hmmm, let's see if I can come up with any more contest entries. :)

Running, kind of. said...

Woo whooo!! I am surprised your blog hasn't caught flames and burned up with all the action it has seen!!

I just registerd for Seattle Half this morning. I heard the full was sold out...so I got nervous. It seems like they changed the order of things too. Hopefully it will run more smoothly! The walked start AFTER the runners this year.. Thank goodness!

Talk about commenting woes! I just accidentally posted the same comment THREE times on your give away! SO SORRY! Before I new it it happened! I wasnt trying to cheat the system, I promise! :)

Thanks for the comment 200 in that short of time--you go girl! I already bookmarked the site--looks like clothes I would love to workout in! :)
PS thanks for the comment :)

I don't quite know how to put this without sounding bad no matter what. But I'll try.
I don't want you to think I'm a snob for not entering your contest. I would totally have entered except you said the shorts are only size M or L and those would be too big. :(

Good job getting those comments! I think everyone knows you have great intentions on getting back!

Britt said...

Sorry about the comment box. Probably some computer glitch on MY part! ;)
Yeah for the TWO shorts giveaways! :)

Swim, bike, what? said...

Oh my gosh, it's my name in lights! Ok, maybe just in pretty colored font :)

Not sure why the comment wasn't working...but I changed a few things and "tested" it out myself!

Thanks for the heads-up :)

X-Country2 said...

I'm all about the comments too. They make my day. :o) Good luck with the contest. The shorts aren't my style, but I'm sure the winner will love them.

RunToFinish said...

i used to be awesome about commenting, then I started working 80 hours, so I find that I read but don't always comment. I'm trying though!

Caitlin said...

Aww, thanks for being my first follower (and being patient through the blog's technical difficulties). And thanks for the shout-out and good luck wishes! You totally rock! (I'm looking forward to the 2009 Umbros Farewell Tour myself. :) )

Robin said...

Mel,
Glad I had an hour this afternoon to read through your recent posts.. now I know to post here, in reply to your comments on mine (and to your own insightful bloggie stuff!). Thanks for the heads-up.

I've also have been wondering when your 5K to PR was... scrolled down 'til I found the darn date: 9/19 (hope this isn't confused w/ stalking...that would be weird, right? lol)

Anyway, love the pics. Glad you like my new one - you are welcome to join me for a run around the lake anytime - though my turtle pace would be (literally) a walk in the park for you. :) (the boys would love it...lots of critters!)

Virtual hugs,
robin

Robin said...

Um, little typing mumbo jumbo there - you get what i was saying in that last comment, though... i'm pretty sure. LONG DAY! :)

Now I'm going to go check out Caitlin's blog, since she's joined our bloggie world most recently...

Reciprocity, right...??? :) Pay it forward.

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can make real money on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually is spent
for daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per daily now.
