And the Winner is... ME!

Yesterday our church had a fundraising raffle. I'm on the fundraising committee and I'd been selling tickets and we bought some of the ones that I didn't sell and dropped them off on Saturday night after we went to Mass at one of the mission churches, and didn't think much more of it. Third prize in the raffle was a piece of jewelry that I am going to make the third place winner, and I kept laughingly predicting that we would win it.

When we left to go visit Nani and Grumpa yesterday while Paul was at work I glanced at the clock and saw that it was afternoon and figured that since we hadn't heard anything we hadn't won.

However when we got home there was a light flashing on the answering machine and it was one of my friends from the fundraising committee calling to let us know that we had won the grand prize, which includes a giant gift basket and a weekend away at a bed and breakfast!

So we're pretty excited! I wonder how I'll convince Paul to take a weekend off working on his thesis...

  1. Awesome! A weekend away with the husband. An amazing prize. Tell him that you think being away from the thesis will help him relax and he'll be able to think much better that Monday. :) Ok so that line never worked on me in grad school but it was tried. Maybe he'll go with it. Or you could tell him you really need a weekend alone with him (If Grumpa and Nani agree to it). Best of luck either way.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
