My luck is changing......

I never win.....seriously. When it comes to drawings or lotteries, I have NEVER won a thing. Ooo, I take that back. I won an Intel mug at Chad's (old, OLD boyfriend) work party. This was 12-13 years ago... this should prove my point. I remember the mug because it was the only thing I've won. It was probably the only good thing out of that relationship.....but let's not go there. Bill and I came in 2nd place at his work's casino night, but we had to work for that telescope. I plopped my 8 month pregnant body down at Bingo and won 6 out of 7 rounds, while Bill astounded me with his unknown ability at Craps. We can win games (hey Mark and Kathryn....remember 80's night in Coronado? J/K). But anything that is "luck of the draw", we will come up short.
So imagine my surprise! I was running through Harmons for a few quick items when the PA system announced that it was PTA day. Whoever was standing on the snowman with #4 on it would receive a free gift. "Whatever" I thought, and then I looked down and saw the #4 snowman below my feet. I looked up, and 2 women (funny...I teach both their daughters) came running up to me with a dozen white roses. Awesome! I won something just for doing a boring housewive chore. What do I get for doing laundry?
Anyways.....no one tell Bill they were from the PTA. Maybe he'll think he has competition! Chad?

I remember Chad! That is a funny comment about the mug being the best thing. LOL, that feels like a long time ago. I have a picture of you guys dressed up as Batman and Robin for a Halloween party. Glad your luck is changing. I don't ever win anything either...

I was at PTA day (thanks for waving :-) and I won NOTHING! So, you must be pretty amazing. I thought they were giving away something like Soft Scrub. I should've looked for the snowmen!
