Maya & I were coughing all night long, so after I got her on the bus I went back to bed for 2 hours (yeah, I know, it's one of the major perks of unemployment). When I re-awoke and sat down at the computer to get some stuff done I was alerted that the Parents Magazine Best Blog Award winners had been released . . . and I was a winner :) We are now officially the:
"Readers's Choice"---that means all of you kind folks. So, thanks a million for voting and
(this is where someone should cue the music, before I launch into a full blown acceptance speech)
To sweeten the victory, I just realized that today is my 4 Year Blogoversary. Exactly 4 years ago today, the blog started, with these three sentences:
"I have no idea what I'm doing. Do not come here with high expectations of wit or regular updating. We'll see what happens."
When all else fails, set low expectations, I guess. Well done, Dana.
In other news, I got a job offer today (which I will be accepting) and it has nothing to do with special needs. So that's a bit of a nice break. A blog award, employment, and a blogoversary---talk about a great day!
Oh, and I won the lottery.
Well, I guess I won a lottery, not the lottery. 5 big ones!
$5, and I'm not sharing it, either.
The lottery ticket was a gift from Dave--he thought I was on a roll today, so it was worth a shot---he also brought home a few other celebratory gifts:
Note the balloon---it originally said "Best Party Ever", but Dave crossed out "Party" and wrote "Blog"
I'm off to drink champagne, eat a giant chocolate chip cookie, and daydream about how to spend my lottery winnings :)
Thanks again, everyone.
