...one hundred one...one hundred two...one hundred three! yes, you read it correctly. one hundred three. dollars, that is.
we went to our friday afternoon spot to pick up lotto plus tickets. i usually take in my old slips from the previous week and have the nice people check to see if i won anything. it's usually "not a winner", or 3 whopping dollars. TODAY, the machine went "woo-hoo! woo-hoo! woo-hoo!" i thought it was strange, but didn't really think much about it. the lady was looking at me with huge eyes and said "do you know what that means???" i didn't. i said, "no." she said, "look at how much you won". something was rolling quickly on the digital display, but i was so confused and caught off guard, that i didn't see what i was supposed to. she said, "you just won $103.00!!!!"
so, YAAAAAAY!!!!!!! i won 103.00! i couldn't believe it. it couldn't have come at a better time. who DOESN'T need money at christmas, right?! i'm still trying to decide what to do with it. there are numerous things i'd like to do with it. actually, if it was the jackpot, i'd REALLY be able to do the things i'd like to do....and i (well, we=mike+i) would NOT keep it all for myself. there would be LOTS of people in need getting nice blessings!!! and lots of my closest friends (and family, of course) being blessed in huge ways, too! if WE win, our BESTIES win. :)
i just had to post the below picture. just because it's so dorky. it's just so dramatic. it's just SO.....me. cheesy. silly. fun. hilarious. look at the crazy look in my eyes. it cracks me up. and, people were telling me how great my hair looked today. haha. (nothing like a great hair day, right?! i fixed it straight today, something that takes a little more effort than just letting it be natually curly...) to my friends who know the story....i'm sure the below look on my face ALSO said "HIIIIII, BOB!", a couple days ago. hahahahaaaaaaaaa.
also, i must say that i met one of my VERY best friends for lunch today. it was SOOOOOO SOOOOOOO GREAT to see her!!!!! she looks great and it has been far too long since we've seen each other! she just got engaged too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'm SO flippin' excited and happy for her. probably more happy and excited than she is. i just get so excited for my close friends like that. her ring is gorgeous! absolutely gorgeous. we shared a couple of happy tears together when she told me how her VERY special guy proposed. love those two! we had a nice time catching up. at the end of the hour, it felt like we had only spent 10 minutes together. it went by entirely too fast. we need to do that more often.
that's it for now. i'll try to write more tomorrow.
