On Stranger Tides…

A few months ago I entered a contest…then I forgot about it.  My life is hectic and doesn’t always go the way I planned, but then, that’s life.  On Thursday a long distance number called me and left a message.  I was making dinner with my daughter and getting things straight in the kitchen and I never heard my cell phone.  By the time I checked my messages, it was late.  I almost dropped the phone.  Someone from HGTV was calling me.  Seriously.  On Friday I got in touch with her and found out that my essay was a finalist in a contest they had about why I needed a vacation.  I am not joking.  This weekend has been a whirlwind of cleaning the house, trying to find out how fast I could get a passport should I need it, and oh yeah, making a video to send to Pie Town.  I’m not going to be able to go into any specifics because I really don’t know anything.  All I know is I have a chance to go on the adventure of a lifetime and I hope we make it.  Our family is running up against other families, but I think we have a pretty good chance.  One last thing, we get to tell them our favorite Disney or Pixar character…ha.  Tough choice.
