On January 26th (my birthday!) I had a small win.
Now I don’t cook and I’m no Martha Stewart but maybe this will start me on some new hobbies. (doubtful … by maybe?) If any of my friends like this sort of thing let me know and I’ll give you the issues as they come. If not, I’ll try something new. :)
There were 20,000 winners. So it’s no miracle that I won. The sweeps that give away lots of smaller prizes, as opposed to (or in addition to) one big grand prize, have much better odds.
Value = $5.99
But the real win was the present I got in the mail on my birthday. I should preface that I have pretty bad luck on my birthday. Not something to feel sorry for me about. Just a series of unfortunate events that have surrounded that day and the month of January, in general. So I was trying to lay low this year. And the day did not get off to the best start. I had lunch plans that fell through and the day got turned upside down due to a last minute audition (which I am grateful for, but it took up the whole day).
But there were two great things about my birthday (in addition to all the nice Facebook messages and posts from friends). The first was that I got to have dinner with my good college friends Scott and Kate who always make me feel loved and cared for. They even decorated!
The second was that I got my book “Love by the Numbers” in the mail that day! This is the book I blogged about when I wrote about my friend Mike. I just love that it came on January 26th. It felt like Mike was with me on my birthday.
Here’s a pic of the book. It’s Super cheesy looking! But hey, maybe I actually will find love this year. Who knows? And if not, I’m just happy it came on my birthday.
I thought my birthday was going to be especially hard this year. But it’s the little things that make life bright. :)
