As good luck would have it....

I returned home yesterday from my "Team Fitness" class at the gym. I was tense and tired from my strenuous workout. I had been looking forward to coming home and taking a little cat nap. I drove up my driveway and saw a box on my front porch. I thought the box contained the wrist guards I ordered for my boys. Dreamy's wrist has been bothering him in practice and coach told me wrist guards would help.

But the box did NOT contain the wrist guards.

The box was for ME. That never happens. The only things I get in the mail are bills and junk.

The box contained THIS:


Before I continue any further I just have to tell you all that I'm like the luckiest person you know. Seriously. I win EVERYthing. Always. I have won almost every single center piece to every single shower that I've ever been to. And when I enter a raffle....I almost always win. It's freaky. I won the grand prize at my high school senior all night party. A refrigerator for my college dorm room. Hubby and I won a 52 inch TV grand prize at his work Christmas party back in 1996 the day before my 1st child was born. We also won a 36 inch flat screen TV at another work party. Put it this way....we have 5 TVs in this house and we JUST bought our 1st TV last month. Every other TV has been won through a raffle. I won my KitchenAid mixer. We've won gas cards...we've won gift certificates. My house is littered with shower center pieces and door prizes. I've also won many scrapbooking items at various scrapbooking events I've gone to.

Is it bad luck to say I have good luck? I may be jinxing myself.

The following pictures are just some of things we've won over the years.....



Last week Marni had a giveaway on her blog. I took one look at a picture of this contraption on Marni's blog and (knowing what she does for a living....for those not in know....she sells "adult toys") laughed and said what the hell do you do with that thing. My imagination was running amok. But I read on to discover that it is a Head Massager.....I could insert a ridiculously childish and trite comment about it being for the head aBOVE your waste....and of course tell you to get your mind out of the gutter.....but I'll spare you.


And I WON! I WON!

THIS....




So I sat on my great room floor and tested it out. And I couldn't stop laughing long enough to get a decent meditative photograph. I felt like a fool with an unidentifiable object on my head in my living room trying to take photos of my self. I kept thinking please Dear Lord don't let a neighbor walk up to my front door and witness this.




My kids woke up for school this morning and found this on our coffee table. They thought it was a hoot. It entertained us all. They were in stitches when they found out what it was and couldn't stop giggling with it on their head. We are easily amused and entertained. It tickles. It vibrates. It feels bizarre. "Mom, even my teeth are vibrating," "DUDE, it tickles all the way down my back," "Mommy, I think even my butt is vibrating."



Marni you rock! Thank you again! You made my day.

You are so lucky! I never win:(

Kate @ Life As I Live It said...

I agree...I need to come rub up on ya or something! And that head massager? Vibrates?? I've seen the ones that are manual, so to speak, that are basically head scratchers, but one that vibrates? Man, that'd be awesome. I love have my head scratched.

And you crack me up. I was doing the same thing, trying to take a picture of myself with my paint roller...no luck. I'm just a hideous freak.
