So far in the history of me I have won 4 tickets to Kennywood, a couple of cheeseburgers, a frosty, and a small Pampered Chef recipe book.
I am a sucker for all things free, so I sign up to win everything. And I always think I’m going to win. This week I dropped my name in to win a free night at the orchestra and 10 days with a personal trainer. Wouldn’t spot the crazy cash for either, but if it’s free…
Because of said tendency to register for everything, my name is on every mailing list. You should see our mailbox.
I always wonder if the mail carrier wants to hunt me down or if he relishes the challenge of stuffing all the junk into that little box.
Anyway, I shall not complain about junk, nor about the hundreds of times I haven’t won. Instead, I shall freak out that I won a 3 Month Family Membership to the Y! Such a win calls for excessive screaming and jumping and scaring the small children. AHHHHHHH!!!!!!
On Tuesday, we officially paraded in with our prize. I’ve logged in miles since then, swam with the kiddos in the pool, and am still freaked out by the free weights.
One day I will brave the mass of buff people and figure things out, or at least look like a skinny fool.
Till then, I’m enjoying lapping everyone on the track. I am so not competitive on the treadmill in our basement, but tracks are another story. I’ve already bragged to Paul that I’m the fastest human on that thing. (I’m also the youngest by about 20 years – this fastest human thing won’t last long.)
Anyway, I am very excited. This is the best win ever!
Here’s to free stuff, three months of burning legs, and playing with the kiddos! Yeah!
What is the best thing you’ve ever won?
