Simplify My Life Sweepstakes

I received a diagnosis! The doctors know what is causing my debilitating back pain and sciatica.

It is a newly recognized condition called Desktopsy-Turvy Syndrome.

It is caused by my excessive use of a desktop computer. I organize every aspect of my life on it and have to lug it with me everywhere I go.


To the kitchen…



To the classroom...



Even to the gym!


No wonder I had problems walking last week!

But don’t despair! There is a cure for my condition!

The HP mini 110 with Windows 7!


The Mom Bloggers Club and HP have partnered for the Simplify My Life sweepstakes. If the judges like this post, I could win a new HP mini 110 with Windows 7.


It’s so sleek, compact, and light-weight!


Winning an HP mini 110 would allow me to keep my life organized without breaking my back!


Plus, I would look a lot less dopey when I need to carry my computer with me to homeschool support group meetings.

I mean, would you want your group president to look like this?


The rolling chair walker really completes the look, doesn't it?

Here is extra good news! I am not the only one who could find myself in Laptopia!

You could win an HP mini 110 with Windows 7, too!

Three random winners will be chosen from those who comment on any participating blog post. That means you could be a randomly selected winner just by leaving a comment here about my back pain solution!

What do you think?

Isn’t an HP mini 110 just what the doctor ordered?

Cute post! Good luck to you!

Too funny--love the pictures! What a great cure--hope you win one.

Deb said...

A mini would definitely simplify my life because I wouldn’t have to lug around that big heavy laptop anymore!! And it would fit inside my handbag instead of being so conspicuous in a carry around laptop bag. And besides, you don’t always want to carry your laptop with you but leaving it in the car is a direct invitation to thieves to break in and steal it. Being able to carry it in my purse is a major advantage! Great giveaway!

Hilarious!
Good Luck to you! I blogged & entered, too!
This HP 100 Mini netbook would be a blessing to our family, as we only have one old desktop to share amongst our family of 7. We rely heavily on spreadsheets, lists,email and schedules, etc. to streamline our day to day activities, and the portability of the HP 100 mini would make it so effortless and stylish. Plus, mobile computing would be perfect to pass the time--when time seemingly stands still--like when waiting in a doctor's office!

Good Luck!

That's hilarious, Dawn. I wonder if a laptop would help me with my back pain, too?!

Patience said...

There's nothing like a slim laptop notebook to seriously straighten you out! I'd love one too for my writing:)

Mama Hen said...

Hi! I'm visiting from MBC. Great blog.

I was surfing around and stumbled on your blog and cracked up at the pictures! My husband teases me that I take my laptop from room to room with me so no one will use it. He only says that because that is what he does with the remote!
