I just have to tell you all... this is the time of year where depression hits a lot of folks.
It never hits me.
You wanna know why?
For the past 4 years I have fought the winter blues with this most awesome contest! I can daydream about what my life would be like when I win this prize! For a month and a half I enter this contest, then for another month after that, I anticipate the call... the door bell... the big surprise... How will it happen? Will everyone know? Who will come out of the woodwork when they find out we are loaded?
My husband and I would jump up and down, hug each other and probably squeal at the top of our lungs! And this year it's not just a measly million... it's over 2 million! That means, after taxes, that is still over a million bucks in our pockets!
We would fly to Colorado, tour the dream home, sell the dream home, then put our big money in the bank! How awesome it would be to finally be able to stay at home with my baby and maybe send Ian back to school or start his own business?!?! How would it be to share the wealth with our families, travel the world, not worry about debt or retirement or if the car is going to break down?
My sister says I am nuts for even thinking there is a chance I could win. She hates the links my mom and I send her from the contest web sites we visit. (We only enter the really good ones...) One day I'll call her from our fancy vacation home in Turkey and say, "See! The big ones are worth entering... wish you were here... gotta go, our chef just finished making dinner on the beach for us... Look for a post card!"
