I’m very excited to be the Featured Blogger for Heather’s blog over at Acting Balanced. Please swing by and check out her blog. It’s a little bit of everything. She has fun giveaways, book reviews, product reviews – she gives away enough stuff to fill one of my closets! Right now she’s got lipbalm, CDs, candles and a bunch of other goodies! And while you’re there you can tell her how amazing her featured blogger is this week…..heeheeheehee – just kidding…..ok, not really…….TELL HER!!! HA
Just a couple of days ago I was thinking how much time I was spending on my blog and beginning to wonder if anyone paid attention out there. YOu know, your typical pity party. I have been entering giveaway contests and twitter contests galore with not a single win under my belt. Of course, I’m not sure why expected to win anything. I NEVER win anything. I honestly can’t think of a single contest I have ever won. You would think I would get the message. I guess it’s the stubborn streak in me though. I still keep trying. It’s probably a good thing I don’t win anything or I would surely die of a heart attack and never even get to redeem my prize. That would just be my luck! How embarrassing would that be. “AND OUR WINNER OF THIS PACK OF TIC-TACS IS….PAM HUNTER!!” KERPLUNK – “Hello Jesus – is this where I come to pick up my prize pack of tic-tacs?” Yeah, wouldn’t that be a sight?!? I would atleast hope it would be over something more substantial like a Snickers bar or something.
My mom won a TV once. We were on a youth group hayride when I was about 15. She went as a chaperone and won the prize. Now that I think about it I’m thinking that isn’t quite fair actually. It was an event for MY church youth group!! Hey I think that was supposed to be MY prize! HEY!!!!! MY MOM STOLE MY PRIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a tiny black and white TV – I mean it WAS 1981. But still I’m quite sure that I was supposed to win that TV. Why was her name even in the pot? Seems fishy to me!
At my parent’s church Christmas dinner Saturday night my dad won a calculator large enough to need a briefcase to carry it in. I think he is still looking for the mousepad and the white apple on the outside of it. He can keep that prize. I have no need for a calculator. I don’t homeschool anymore and no longer have any need WHATSOEVER for any mathmatical figurin’. Maybe a grammer refresher course but definitely no need for MATH! Besides I have a son who thinks math “is easy” so I don’t need math as an adult. What we have always said in high school math class is true you really DON’T need math. I should have quit math after first grade. Geez, why didn’t I figure this out before now?
Anyway, my winning prize for this week is being a featured blogger! And I like it! I’ll take it! And I don’t see St. Peter or any pearly gates so I’m thinking this is a safe prize! Come and see!
