How Ironic

I just spent quite a bit of my time on a post called "luck of the Irish" in which I told a story about Isabella and how her luck was better than mine. I was starting to not believe in luck but then something happened that reaffirmed I have no luck whatsoever. My computer freaked out and deleted my whole post picture uploads and all. That just sucks.

Ever since I was a kid I have never won a drawing. I am not making this up. Even when my Uncle Brian died and all the cousins got to pick a t-shirt of his I was last(he has really cool fire work shirts). Well Isa and I went to a fundraiser for the playhouse and they had drawings for little stuffed cows, a t-shirt and some playhouse passes. I put Isa's name in because my friend shiree made me but I figured she would have my luck and not win anything. I was very wrong however because she won the coolest prize. The cute t-shirt. She fell in love with it right away because it had a cow on it and she loves animals. She wore it there, home , to bed and tried to wear it the next day. Luckily I convinced her to wear her tiger shirt in stead. Poor cows, they will always be second best to tigers.

She got pretty upset when I interrupted the care bears to take her picture.


Then she got frustrated when I wanted to take more.


Finally I just took one of the shirt so everyone could read it. Pretty cute huh?

That staredown in the first picture is scary. All women have that staredown, I just did not know it came so early in life

You have care bears videos? I thought those were all locked inside museums...

Wow, I'm the same way. The only drawing I ever won in my life was in the fifth grade at the school fair. I got a bag of 100 pices of chewing gum, and my parents made me THROW IT AWAY.

We have yet to test Stella's luck. Maybe she'll hit it big. . .

I won an electric typewriter when I was in grad school. (Anybody here remember electric typewriters?) I thought I was really lucky, until I learned I was the only one who registered for the drawing. The business went out of business right after I graduated.

Once, when I was at a computer conference, I won a book.

Plus, I think I really won in the wife department, if that counts.
