Crazy day...

Wow – this has been a bit of a crazy day! The small fun thing is that for the second day in a row I won a free coffee from Tim Horton’s Rrroll Up The Rim To Win contest!! Woohoo!!! Very exciting…and here is, for a little fun, how to properly roll up the rim so that you can win, like me;)


Second piece of news is big. For me anyway. Sadly I can’t really talk about it here…I would love to, and if you would like to know we can take it off here. But let me say this: it’s a biggie. This would change a lot of things. This would make for one crazy year! But first – I have to get through the first step. Then the next…but still. I made it to the first step. In all honesty I really did think that this was a long shot, more than that, I didn’t really think they would take me seriously. I made it though…wow. I did it. I know that at this point it's a small thing really - but quite exciting for me anyway:)

So I ask that you all say a little prayer, send a little hope, make a wish on a star for me, whatever you are most comfortable with.

Word #2:
CARPERPETUATION (kar'pur pet u a shun) n. The act, when vacuuming, of running over a string or a piece of lint at least a dozen times, reaching over and picking it up, examining it, then putting it back down to give the vacuum one more chance.

This reminds me of that Diet Coke contest they were running. 1 in 12 wins. Yeah right. I drink one a day and only won once over 4 months. Sounds rigged!

And I love the word of the day! That made me laugh out loud, because I've done that!

Jen said...

Yeah - I never win with the Diet Coke contests...and I drink A LOT of Diet Coke (which is sorta sad...). So far so good with Timmy's though... *fingers crossed*

Ok - so you suck with the whole coffee thing...winning twice - JUST NOT FAIR!!!

As for the second thing - I am so excited for you - I know you are not wanting to get your hopes up and I totally understand that, but that doesn't change that I am super excited for you:)

I will be crossing my fingers, and wishing on all the stars in the sky for you. :)

As for "CARPERPETUATION", this is me, sad but true and I still cannot figure out why I just do not pick it up in the first place.
