I don’t believe it. I simply don’t believe it!

Today, I spent most of the day at our church. We’re doing our church directory portraits, and I had to be there to oversee the set up, sign people in, etc., etc. I had to take Lucy with me, because Lucy is just too much for MIL to watch. Lucy did NOT make things easy today. Thank heavens, Gene stopped to get her on his way home from work.

I got to leave around 7:30 when Ms. Sabrina (aka Mandy’s Mom) relieved me. I called Gene to find out what he wanted me to pick up for my and his dinner, and he couldn’t decide. (Men!) So, I went to the grocery store since I needed to pick up a few things for the rest of the week.

I get into the store, get my items, get rung up, and my debit card won’t work. I KNOW there’s money on it, but it won’t work. She runs it 3 times, and it’s declined every time. SIGH. Luckily, I had cash, so I just paid that way.

Get out to my car, put the groceries in, put my key in the ignition, and ……………. NOTHING. Car is as dead as dead can be. Great. I call Gene to come rescue, but he has no jumper cables, so a lot of good he is. A friend from church pulls up (thank heavens for small towns!), and she doesn’t have jumper cables either, so she goes inside and has them page over the intercom that we need jumper cables. A guy comes out a few mintues later, and helps us jump the van. It starts right up, and I drive to pick up the kids (withOUT turning my car off!), and then head home. Get home, turn it off, and it won’t start again.

We get out of the car, and there are two boxes on the porch. The first is from my dear friend, Kim. More bows for Lucy to do some more bow modeling! YAY! I knew this box was coming, just didn’t know when.

The second box was from Due Maternity. Gene immediately wanted to know what I had ordered, how much it had cost, blah, blah, blah. I *knew* I hadn’t ordered anything, and it just didn’t make any sense. I open it up, and I find out that I’m the winner of their weekly contest! I didn’t even remember that I had entered it! Inside was a big box of skin care items. Actually, it was this kit. There were also a bunch of samples of other body care items! How cool is that?!

Also, Due Maternity sent a special coupon code. If you go to their website and place an order of $25 or more, you will receive 10% off your order. The code you need to enter at checkout is AngelaV. Hope that helps someone out!!

I really can’t believe it. My awful, awful day, and I come home to find out I’ve won another contest.

I really do need to invest in that lottery ticket!
