The Year of a Million Dreams
I just might be the happiest girl on earth. After hearing about a radio contest to win a trip for four to Disneyland I started madly entering, time after time after time. My kids and my husband thought I was a little insane and so did the neighbor kids. But I told all of them, how crazy am I going to look when I win this trip? Who is looking crazy now?????
This morning at 7:03 a.m. we got a call from 106.5 KOSY and were informed that I was the big winner for the day. I was overjoyed and jumping all over the place. I looked over at H who was in bed (which was where we both were when the call came, sleeping) and he had a surprised kinda smile on his face. After I got off the phone I went and woke the kiddos to tell them the good news. It's the third day of 2008 and where are we going to go? DISNEYLAND!!!
We really, really wanted to take the kids to D'Land this year but it just wasn't going to happen, again. So when I heard about this contest I was ALL OVER IT like big ears on Mickey Mouse.
Here is how I won: I went onto the radio's website. Then I had to locate the two radio talkshow personalities in the park. I had to click on both maps of D'Land and Cal Adventure. I finally found them in Star Tours (which is ironic because when we went to D'land 9 years ago, Sav went on this ride first and FREAKED OUT and didn't want to go and set the tone for a somewhat downer trip to D'Land). Once I found the two personalities in Star Tours, I click on them, click on enter to win, click on register and I did this as many times as Captain Jack says "Savvy" in Pirates.
Harold told me I would have to win this trip because he isn't "lucky." To which I said, "Hitch your wagon to this train baby, because I am going to win." AND I DID!
Harold also said that his motto for 2008 is Positive thinking in 2008. So, Harold, how is that new motto going for you?
Feel free to call and congratulate me as I want to tell the whole world just how excited we are. My kids are going to ask the bus driver if they can announce the news into the microphone on the bus. I called my mother right after I told the kids because I had to share the news.
We won 4 3-day Park Hopper passes, 2 nights at a D'Land resort hotel and two gas cards worth $106.50.
The winds, they are a'changin!
