If Wishes Were Horses : Part two

Last night I kept hitting refresh on the local Lottery website, waiting for the numbers to come out, hoping that I had won.

I did win, but only two bucks.

See, Christmas is coming and while I have my immediate family's gifts under control (except for hubs, he really wants rock band, but it is out of our price range right now), I would love to be able to shop expansively for my dad and step mom and my siblings.

My dad and his wifee-poo love to gold - they even golf with snow on the ground, and i would love to get them something in the line of Cobra golf accessories. My sister is into weird things, but I would love to be able to give her a bunch of gift cards to the stores she frequents, and my brother has two adorable daughters that I would love to buy gift upon gift upon gift for, but I cannot.

And then there is the fact that yet another blogger is having a blogger party, and as much as I would LOVE to go, I cannot, absolutely cannot, afford the 2k it would cost to get me out there.

BUT. I have a ticket for tonight's Super Seven, so fingers crossed people!

I hope you win because I know you won't be one of those people who wins a gazillion dollars and then says, "I don't really know what I'll do with it"--at which point the $$$ should immediately be taken away and given to someone else--like me.
YOU, on the other hand, are definitely a SCREAMER, I can tell--
so, GOOD LUCK!!!! I'm pullin' for ya!
