Oh, it's that bad, people. Now, once I won a costume contest, but that was mostly due to my mom's sewing prowess. Once at a baby shower, I won a prize for guessing how big around the mom-to-be's stomach was, but since I've had so much experience with that myself, I figure that had more to do with professional knowledge than with luck. And... that's about it. Whatever blessings I've experienced in life have nothing whatsoever to do with my luck, which apparently stinks. Until this weekend!
Later on Saturday, I received an email from Life in A Shoe informing me that I had won two of Vision Forum's new releases: Passionate Housewives Desperate For God by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald and the new DVD called Return of the Daughters by Anna and Elizabeth Botkin. I've seen reviews for these items on Doug Phillip's blog, and the Vision Forum catalog is a favorite among homeschoolers- I've drooled over their items for years! I began eagerly checking my email every couple of hours. Maybe something good was going on here!
And finally, last night, I received an email from Karen at Mommy of Three letting me know that I won a copy of another newly released book, Canteen Dreams by Cara Putman, who is a Christian lawyer, writer, mom- and was homeschooled herself!
