Surprise Awesomeness!

October 27th, 2010 at 11:09 pm

Aside from the fact that it has been blizzarding here all night and day and I had to have a nice stranger push my car into my work parking lot.......aside from the that I had a fabulous day! I was nominated for and won an award at work! They go around and let the people who were nominated know that they were nominated, then like 10 min later they announce the winner over the intercom.....so you don't really have time to digest that you were nominated before you find out who won. So I was super surprised and excited! It is a very prestigious award at my employer. I won $300 and get the "good" parking spots for all of Nov, Dec and Jan! The Parking spot is probably worth more then the $300 considering the horrible weather we are having. Since I won the Level 1 award, I am now in the running for the Level 2 award, which is a national competition. If I win Level 2, I win $1000 and get flown with a guest to the Level 2 celebration (last year was in Orlando!). And if I win Level 3 (which would be like the craziest thing ever!) I win $5000 and me and a guest get flown on a vacation (I think of my choice, but not positive on it). So I am very happy and proud to have been nominated and won. I worked very, very hard on the project that I was nominated for.
So now the big question is.......What to do with my $300?! They gave it to me today in the form of American Express Gift Checks, so i can use it anywhere, or I can cash them and use the cash. I am NOT going to put it in savings, I am NOT going to take it to the casino, and I am NOT going to put it against the mortgage. I am going to get myself something FUN! Not sure what yet, and am open to suggestions! I'm thinking maybe I should wait till after Christmas to see what I still want after then...... Happy Hump Day!

    Thank you! I am very proud of myself! I have had other suggestions for massage and I think that would be a good idea. Plus I would have most of the money to get something else. Maybe a Wii? Not sure....hmmmm.
