Meijer had a Wish List sweepstakes from their website during the holidays and since I am now very into entering sweepstakes I was entering every day (just about). Well, I opened up the mailbox this afternoon and saw an envelope from Meijer Sweepstakes inside! Excited, I felt the envelope and felt a gift card inside. After getting inside I opened it and I had won a $20 gift card! It was a fifth place prize but, hey, $20 is $20. And, I won it! Awesome.
This is going to be a good year. I wonder if I will be lucky enough to win something like a car! :D
Thanks to the snow/freezing rain/crap storm that came into Ohio yesterday, and is still happening now, Ohio State canceled classes and since I'm not an "essential" staff member I don't have to go in! Of course, my girlfriend is an "essential" staff person so since we're not under a level 3 emergency she still had to go in. That sucks.
It was so fun getting the 1/2" layer of ice off our cars this morning too. At least we still have power as no utility lines have been compromised in our area.
So, today I'm going to try to hammer out a lot of website work so I can make headway on a couple projects and enter a lot of giveaways as well! What? You didn't know there is a Giveaway Carnival going on? Well, why not check it out?
So, during the holiday season I entered a contest that was sponsored by a number of blogs to give away some Dirt Devil Kwiks and when we got back home from out of town new year I had a package on my doorstep. I had no idea what it was because it was from some fulfillment center but when I opened it I had a brand new Dirt Devil Kwik! Very cool. I don't know how much I will actually use it but it's kind of nice to have. It's sitting next to the monitor of our desktop and plugged into the USB port so that's very convenient. I love winning things!
