The Joy of Winning
So today was a crappy day. Just one of those you wish hadn't even bothered to take place, because nothing positive happened at all. That is, until my drive home. As I was driving through the gray, rainy start of rush hour to pick up my boys, I tried to remind myself that their sweet faces would make up for all of the stresses & negatives of my day. Then, at a stoplight (because I'm totally responsible,) I checked my email. And there was a message from the wonderful Carol of Songberries blog emailing to let me know that I had won a tube of EnvyDerm Mascara! And *poof* my day changed directions. So, I am an addict. I'm willing to admit it. I am addicted to the great feeling I get from winning frivolous prizes that I may have never purchased for myself. But it's a great addiction, right? My winning "high" totally turned my day around! Maybe it's very simple of me, but I don't care.
