A Fresh Monday Winner

*
Aren't Mondays wonderful?

Full of promise.

Full of potential.

Full school buses taking the children off to school ... hehehe

Joke of the week: A mother talking to her friend on the phone says : "I childproof the house, but those little buggers just keep getting back in!"

Today's Monday is especially wonderful for the lucky winner of our Free Stuff Friday. Using random.org, the winner is

drum roll, please....

dellgirl!

So, dellgirl, e mail me at tesshilmo(at)comcast(dot)net and I will return your e mail with your amazon gift code.

AND BEFORE YOU CLICK AWAY...those who are sad they didn't win....I have a swimming idea for this coming week's Friday post you won't want to miss. Smaller prize, just as cool, more winners. Hooray for fresh new Mondays -- now let's get writing!

Congrats to the winner!

You know, your joke of the day reminds me of an awesome one (paraphrased) from Erma Bombeck (one of my writing heroes):

When the kids are wild and obnoxious and a time out is needed, I use a playpen. And when everything calm again, I climb back out.

Mondays suck, but you're right...it's an opportunity for a fresh new week of writing!

Darn it! I missed the free give away! I guess there's always this week. :) I loved the joke. I like Mondays, too. The kids go back to school, and the house is quiet again.

Well, happy Monday to you too, Tess! When I first read your post, I thought Friday's contest was going to involve water. But, being the brilliant scientist that I am, I reconsidered and decided you were just using a fun adjective. I think?

Danyelle said...

You are my heroine. :) I mean, I can count the number of people I know who like Mondays on one hand--er, one finger. Thanks for brightening my day. :D

I love your points of promise for Mondays, except the school bus (aka Alarm Clock) brings the kidlets to me, rather than away. :D But I guess that's another point for Mondays are good. O:)
