Friday April 22nd

Posted on Apr 22, 2016

The personal bit:

I finished the post about Peekaboo. It was a pleasure to write – my son is easy to write about! You can read that post HERE if you’re interested.

I’m de-cluttering and have a shit-ton of stuff to donate/get rid of. Most of it is for kids 4-8 (clothes, toys, drum set, puzzles, etc). If you have ANY interest in it, I will load up my van and deliver it to you! I don’t care if you live in Abbotsford, I will deliver it. Your job is to sift through it, take what you want, and donate/sell/give away the rest. If you’re interested, shoot me an email and I’ll send you pictures of the stuff: contestsvancouver@gmail.com. I will be working on it this weekend and if I don’t have any takers, I might have a yard sale next weekend. It’s funny how I look at our stuff and think “that’s crap! Nobody would want THAT!” but it’s stuff that WE bought from yard sales ourselves, or paid good money for and loved for a week or month. It’s not TRULY crap, but I feel disconnected from it because we are done with it. the puzzles were re-done dozens of times, and were the source of many hours of togetherness. Some of the clothes are fantastic and it breaks my heart to get rid of them, but in the end it’s just clutter. Utter clutter. Perhaps YOUR clutter?? 😉

Stuff that happened:

JRFM threw in a stumper into the Rocket Science game: in which 2013 contest did JRFM give away the biggest jackpot? Wow. I have NO idea!! I started the blog in September of that year and at that time they were giving away $5000 with the 5 for5 words. Other than that, I have NO idea what contests they had that year! I look forward to hearing the answer at 7am, or whenever someone guesses that right.

Today is the last day for Beat Your Bills and Beat the Bank. I didn’t get in on either, did you? But it was fun to play along. I wonder what they’ve got on deck? Last year it was Spring Ka-Ching (barf!) and e-transfers (sweet!)

It’s probably your last shot at Gwen Stefani tickets too, so get in on those if you can. Or want to. I have been waffling – not wanting to waste my win on those in case there is someone even better coming soon! AUGH! It’s a tricky game to play! Effing Duran Duran screwed me out of Carol Burnett tickets, damn it! Kicking myself for that one…

It’s Beer Club Friday at Peak! WOOT! 5:30 is the magic moment.

It’s Lotto Max Friday so come find our ticket later, around noon.
