Winning's not the only thing but sometimes it's quite lovely

I got a speeding ticket at lunch today. Which makes it seem like it was a bad day. Except when I got back to my desk I got an email saying I won one of the Design Mom Holiday giveaways and suddenly my day was significantly better. It's weird how that happens. Weird but good.

Just this morning I was entering a contest on another site and I started thinking about how I never win. I started thinking maybe I should stop trying. And then I won. How lovely. Like having my faith restored. Only with prizes. Besides the restored faith, of course.

I'm still a skeptic in my heart though so I don't think I'll mention what I supposedly won until I'm holding it in my hot little hands. But I think maybe I'd be okay if it never even arrived. Because just thinking I won has been like a prize all by itself. Happy Thursday.

Oh yay! I have won a couple things on those contests, a CD and a DVD which got me totally hooked but I haven't won a thing since. And nothing big. But you are right, even a little thing makes you feel happier.

Bummer on the speeding ticket.

Nothing like ying/yang balancing out to make you feel better.

And I agree. Winning, even if there's no prize, always puts a smile on my face.

Congratulations! Isn't it lovely how one little thing can change up a crummy day?

Hey! What is going on with these speeding tickets?? I got one the other day too. Congratulations on your prize.

joy - Yeah, I haven't even gotten the prize yet but I'm hooked on putting in for the giveaways again. Although I only put in for ones I really want. Which is what makes finally winning super exciting.

hotfessional - I almost used ying and yang to describe it in my post!! Get off my wavelength.

witchypoo - Very true. One single solitary thing changed the whole face of my day.

jennifer - My husband thinks the police are doing some end of the year push. Sorry about your ticket. I feel your pain.

Right after I wrote the last comment here, I was kinda thinking the same thing "Oh, I never win anything" I got an email saying I won a giveaway contest.
I love it when the universe makes a liar out of me.

Yay! Congrats on winning the giveaway. Have you heard of Prizey? You have got to check it out if you haven't yet. They compile all sorts of giveaways. It's very cool.

Added Prizey to my Feed Reader last night after reading your comment. Very nice. I like that they even list what you have to do to get entered in the giveaway so I know before I even click if I'll be willing to do that.
