Crossing Out a List Item

Did I tell you that I won a gift certificate over at MomCenter? They ran a contest for Mother's Day and I was one of the winners. I was really thrilled to find out I'd won. I never win anything, except at scam raffles. Anyway, this will allow me to cross out another item (win a contest) on my 365 Things To Do in 2009 List (it has everything from lose 20 lbs and renew passport to apply for small business loans and finish the heirloom quilt). I've had that item in my previous years' lists and they hadn't been crossed out. Of course, when I listed it down, I had a vague idea that I actually meant a writing contest, but since I didn't specify, I have the right to get technical about it. Anyway, I haven't joined a writing contest in years, so this win totally fits the bill. The prize is really nice too.


We got a call on the intercom saying that a courier just dropped off something for me. Marguerite naturally thought it was for her. Anyway, she's holding on to the envelope and letter while I put the gift certificates away.
