Recall that the king size bedding set contained 24 pieces, including comfortor, sheets, pillows, shams, curtains, etc. It's not cheap looking either, very silky and plush. The whole set was $150 at Macy's. Now see that headboard back there? King size with wood posts and iron rails coated in an olive green color that matches the bedding...$75! Jackpot.
Moving on. Dropped Nathan off at daycare and he didn't even cry. Work was productive and relaxed. Met my mom for lunch and stuck to my brand new diet all day. Did I mentioned it's hotter than H-E-double-hockey-sticks here? Nathan slept for three and half hours while I shopped for a laptop online. I was struggling with all the different options and Mark, my yoga instructor/IT helper, magically appeared to instant message me into laptop heaven. He's cool like that. I got a rockin' new Dell for my new portable office that will be shipped to the beachhouse next week! God forbid I should go a week without checking email. Jackpot.
After dinner we went to the gym and I worked my tail off, which felt great. Literally, because after that and my good diet day my scale read almost four pounds less this morning. Jackpot.
Here's the clincher. Remember the Photodoto.com summer photo contest I entered? I wrote about it a few days ago. Well they had a drawing for a free Flickr pro account among the people that wrote about the contest and I WON! Jackpot!! Too bad I didn't win for my photo, but when you compare it to the winners you can see why. Since I already have a paid-for Flickr pro account, I can extend it or give it away. Any budding photogs in desperate need of more uploading capacity?
