I have never claimed to be the most organized blogger, but today I realized that I made a big blogging no no.
I just posted about winning my MaryKay stuff from Michelle.
But, I totally spaced this cool stuff that Rita brought over because I won her 80’s music raffle. It has been sitting on my piano, and until I got on a cleaning kick during the past few days, I had forgotten about it. (I bet you have all been wondering where I have been: getting reaquainted with the joy of a clean house and car, and I have to give the credit for that to Cynthia)
Yeah, you heard it right, I guessed ONE 80’s song title before the millions of others of Rita’s readers. And by some miracle, I won the raffle. Thanks to Nicholas for drawing my name.
And the song I knew?…here’s a good blast to the past: King for a Day by the Thompson Twins. C’mon, you know you want to sing it….A king for just one day…I would give it all away!
I told you that we were on a winning streak. Anyhow, I love the stationary stuff Rita. A woman can never have enough cards, post its, or journals. Thank you Rita! If everyone doesn’t love you already, they should. And my favorite thing in the gift bag: a silver bookmark with Rita’s favorite quote:
It is never too later to be what you might have been. ~ George Eliot
I met Rita when Abigail and Ryan were in the same kindergarten class. Ryan and Abigail have been friends for three years. Wow, time does fly. I am so glad to have Rita as my friend. Not only is she a great blogger, but she is a wonderful mother and a mean bowler. Everyone loves Rita! And, as promised I will not post a picture of her butt from when we went bowling last week. And I am not saying that it doesn’t look good, not that I was checking her out. he he I am just obliging Rita’s request. Here is the best picture I got of you Rita….so typical of what you do best: mothering.
And in honor of the winning occasion:
Excellent Music Choice!
Rita is a great name!
congrats on winning again! and having a clean house and car. I need to go wash my car and while I am at it, I should wash the dog too.
I feel so loved now Alice — you are too sweet! I did not expect you to post your winnings on your blog. It didn’t even cross my mind. But I have to admit I was secretly pleased that Nicholas pulled your name in my contest! 😉>>I am blushing at all of your kind comments…I am quite sure that I am not nearly as “loved” as you make me sound — but thanks for making me feel appreciated today and for your vote of confidence in my mothering skills (which are constantly in question in my mind!)>>So glad to have you as a friend Alice — and thanks for making my day today!
Forgot to add — I enjoyed that silly video yet again — ha ha!
