Another exciting weekend in our household! 🙂
We kicked it off Friday night by having dinner at Casa Too Mucha in New Hartford (again). It’s a great place to eat – if you are passing through the area, drop me a line and I’ll send your directiobns from the Thruway. Well worth the stop.
Saturday morning we were up bright and early for “America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk”, a walkathon for the American Heart Association. The radio station I work for participated in it, as we were doing a live broadcast. I had to put on my happy face so early in the morning! Earl’s company walked in it – and they raised quite a chunk of change! It was cold, cold, cold, but it was for a worthy cause so we didn’t mind too much.
We then took a nap, and then decided to go to the Turning Stone Casino (not too far from the house). It was PACKED when we got there, we couldn’t even find a parking space. So, since we were half way to Syracuse already, we decided to go all the way and have dinner at Spaghetti Warehouse. It was great. On the way home, we stopped at the casino. Earl took $200, I took $100. I decided to play the video slot machines. Well, what do you know… I won $2,250!!! I absolutely couldn’t believe it! Bells rang, people laughed, music played, and an odd woman rubbed my shaved head for good luck. I have never won ANYTHING in my life, and here I won this nice chunk of change! I believe it was an affirmation from God, because I said a silent prayer right before spinning the reels, and I was also playing Earl and my commitment ceremony date – 12/26/96. And voila! 9,000 credits later I had $2,250. So today we went to Best Buy and purchased a new computer. Earl’s computer has been slowing down quite a bit, so I gave him my old Compaq (which has been running fabulously), and I got a new HP Pavilion 760n. It’s a Pentium 4 1.8ghz with 512MB memory, and lots of other goodies. I love it!
Now I’m in the process of cleaning up the “wreck room” for the computer moves. I am walking on Cloud 9 tonight…..
