Luck of the German
Are you ready for St. Patrick's Day? I don't really do a lot for St. Patrick's day but I do have a little leprechaun-looking onesie for Jacoby to wear. So all in all I guess I'm ready! But to finish getting ready I needed to get my spin in to Gretchen about luck. So here we go...
I am extremely lucky. Not only do I have a really good life with my hubby and kiddos I have a really awesome relationship with my parents and brother and his family. I also have excellent relationships with a lot of my cousins and some of my aunts and uncles. So being cheesy I consider myself really lucky in that aspect. But...I'm also very lucky in the things that happen to me...like things that I win.
When I was little my parents took me to a dogtrack (don't judge!). They let me pick some of the dogs who I wanted to win. And I think there was a streak where every dog I picked won. And of course I chose the dogs with the best names. From there my parents gave me some of the winnings and I went to the claw machine. And I cleaned up! I think that is where my luck came from. The track!
Since then I've been very lucky in just really random things. I won a radio contest where I won a first generation Iphone (when they had just been released), autographed items from artists and a Calvin Klein purse. I've also just randomly called into radio stations and won little things here and there. I won a competition at work where you had to have certain referrals to get into the contest. I did and I won the choice of either an Ipad or $500. I chose the money because I was pregnant with Jaocby and knew the money would be a better investment. I entered into a drawing for a sports package for Leo and won. We recently attended a church function and I won a raffle basket for him. It always seems like I win at scratch off lottery tickets. And there for a while I had a streak that any time I played Turkey Bingo at church I would win a turkey. Unfortunately my luck has changed in that aspect because I haven't won a turkey in years!
Of course my hubby thinks that I need to play for bigger prizes. Like the Powerball. Or hit the casinos. But I think my luck comes when I need it. If I need a little pick-me-up something good will happen. I just think it's good luck!
