Power Of Positive Thinking

Remember yesterday when I said I was going to win the Mega-Millions lottery?

Remember, I said WHEN I win?

Well, guess what.

I WON!

I REALLY DID!



OK, it was only $2, but that means one free coffee this week with 84 cents left over.

WINNING!

Friday Four times two

1. I bought a vacuum from a door-to-door salesman.
2. But thanks to the "INTERNETS" I got a pretty good deal!
3. After everything the salesman did to sell me the vacuum, I'm a little more thankful that I'm not in sales!
4. I have not read The Hunger Games but I'm intrigued. I want to see the movie but feel compelled to read it first since the book is always better than the movie.
5. What should be done first...something marked ASAP, or Immediately? I get countless emails all day with these words. Truth be told I'm kind of numb to both phrases.
6. Lotto is up to $540M! Five hundred forty MILLION!!!! Boy do I have ideas on how to spend it!
7. I'm a cheapskate. For example, I'm typing this on my Nook because I'm too cheap to buy an iPad. I wonder if that will change when I win $540 MILLION!
8. Yep, I said when I win. The power of positive thinking!

Well, that's twice as many as I've been doing so Happy Friday!

Friday Four - Summer in MARCH!!!!

1. 88 degrees out today, and our upstairs air conditioner doesn't work. And noone answers when we call the warrenty line. NOT Happy!

2. It is GORGEOUS out! Charlie and I went for a nice walk in the woods out to the lake - water is rising, almost time to test it for swimming! HAPPY!

3. Dude is out fishing in the lake so we are either having fish or bison burgers for supper. I'm betting on the burger! HAPPY (either way)!

4. It's time to go sit on the back deck with Corona Light and watch the sun set over the lake! Yabba- Dabba - Do!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Friday Four - Random things that have nothing to do with the other

1. I'm "Judgey McJudgey Pants" in the check out line. I look at what you're buying, I look at you, and I make assumptions. Well today, I would hate to think what people were thinking of me.

Usually I'm all veggies, lean meats, and whole grains.

Today...not so much:
- hot dogs (turkey dogs...but still),
- hot dog buns (white enriched flour buns, not the whole wheat ones),
- chili (hormel...not Amy's Organic which I would have felt less guilty about),
- steak fries (cause I'm running low on tator tots and prefer steak fries),
- and a box of wine (cause it's Friday and I'm thirsty).

Happy Friday!

2. We are finally having our Housewarming. If you weren't invited it's because I either don't have your email address (send it to me) or I don't know you but I appreciate you reading! Since we live in the sticks (a good 30+ miles from many of our friends) our theme is "Putting on the Sticks" - Kebabs and appetizers on toothpicks.

3. Charlie is the best darn dog in the whole universe! We finally found a dog park close to us (then three days later I found out about another one). I also figured out that he is not a running dog. Well, maybe he could be a running dog, provided he is off leash. Attach the leash and he becomes s-l-o-w walking dog!


4. George Clooney was apparently in town and he didn't call. :-(
