I received my wonderful prize for the BBF photo contest in the mail yesterday. The snail mail. It took ten days – 10 DAYS! – to mail this small envelope a few miles. Check the postmark date if you don’t believe me.
The zip code is Lyndon. I PRACTICALLY LIVE IN LYNDON! I just don’t get it. I know holiday cards are being mailed but I got Mel’s holiday card in 3 days – and she lives 15 miles from me. I’m discombobulated.
The good part is that the prize money is finally here. Along with a lovely handwritten note. Thank you Bluegrass Balloon Festival. I’m happy to support your balloon glow and take pictures. It makes me happy. And it gives me practice.
So now I just have to venture outside of my house and fight holiday traffic to get to Meijer and spend this $100 like it’s my day job. And since I haven’t been to the grocery in about…ah… three weeks, this should be easy to do.
My goal is not to have to go grocery shopping again until 2010. And to figure out a way to Houdini it all in my refrigerator and my sorry excuse for a pantry. I don’t have a pantry – I have cupboards. And it’s inconvenient. But where there’s a will, there’s a way.
Oh, and I’d like to send a warm welcome to new Head Coach Charlie Strong. I’m so excited to have He-Man as the Louisville Cardinals new football coach. This man has shoulders on his shoulders.
