Keys to the Kingdom/The trip of a lifetime!
Well, I guess I'll start at the beginning...
This past summer the kids started begging us to go back to Disney. It was the most fun that we'd ever had on vacation and we all were anxious to get back
I began searching for deals...you see the "Disney World jar" was empty! I happened to see the link to win a trip and thought "why not?". Never in a million years would I have thought that my family (from the middle of nowhere, as my DS puts it) could win.
Around the beginning of September, I had a message on our machine from someone who wanted to talk to me about the sweepstakes I had entered. I am extremely skeptical of everything and have to admit...I was looking for the catch! I listened to it a few more times and then called my DH at work. He had me walk through the message a few times and said well, call him back and see what he wants.
I call and he starts by telling me that I am his grand prize winner...I listen waiting for the catch...He assures me that there is no catch and that I am indeed the grand prize winner...at that point, I screamed and got all choked up while doing the "happy dance"
I have to admit even when I hung up-I couldn't believe it! I call my DH back and he couldn't believe it either!
I anxiously awaited all the necessary paperwork...all the while waiting for the "catch". There appeared to be none...
The man was wonderful and so patient with me as I asked many questions and he was extremely excited about this trip.
As a matter of fact, everyone that I spoke with was excited!
It was still a little hard to believe though! Us? Out of all the people who entered? I was a little hesitant to tell our kids because I was afraid that it wasn't real! That somehow it was a joke or they had made a mistake...
Well, I received the paperwork and it all seemed to be legitimate...I started to fill it out and started to think about how to tell the kids...
That's all for tonight...We have to be up early...
