The cats are already ensconced near and on our empty suitcase. :-)
I have some pictures to share, but not today. For reasons unknown to me, they downloaded into my laptop, but I cannot open them. The Tim has offered to look at things, so hopefully next time I can do a show-and-tell.
I'm bringing the laptop along on our trip, for various things, but I really have no idea if/when I'll post. So you may hear from me this week, or you may not hear from me until we're back. Enjoy the suspense!
Well, it's been nearly two weeks since I announced my giveaway winner, and I have not heard a peep from Lynn. I sent her an e-mail, using the e-mail address in her blog profile, but nothing. I know she gets busy once her kids go back to school, but I feel like two weeks has been plenty of time to even just say, "I'll send my info soon, I'm too busy right now."
So I decided to choose again. Rather than go with the random number generator, I wrote everyone's name on slips of paper and let the kitties choose. The first time, there were two pieces of paper stuck together, so we did it again. Guess what? Still stuck together, LOL. So now there will be two winners and they are:
So, ladies, IF you are reading, please send your mailing info to me at baclancyATverizonDOTnet. (Dee I think I have your address, but please send it along in the event I can't locate it easily!) I will get the packages together once we get home, and send them, so it may be a couple of weeks until they arrive. But I do hope to hear from you, as I was very excited to have my blogiversary giveaway!
And that's it for now. Time to pay the bills that will come due while we're gone, and watch the Notre Dame football game, hoping they can win this one. :-)
One story for you though - I shared this on Facebook, but I figure you guys will enjoy it too.
Every year when we watch the first home game of Notre Dame football, I remember how it felt to be there at the stadium in person the first time. It was the home opener against Michigan (a big rivalry). I was really excited because I'd spent time with my dad as a little girl watching the games on TV when they would be broadcast (he was one of the famous "subway alumni" - Notre Dame fans who have never set foot on campus, but are devoted nonetheless), and being able to actually go to a game in real life was a dream come true. Anyway, the ND players came out onto the field, and the place went crazy, and the band started playing the fight song. The Tim looked up from his book and said, "Is that us?" I assured him that it was, and that it was also very unlikely that the Michigan team would have gotten the same welcome. ;-)
It remains one of my happiest and funniest memories, ever.
Have a wonderful weekend!
