“I’m Baaaaccckkkk” Contest!

I won’t even bother boring you with blah blahing about how crazy things have been around here lately…because I’m sure it’s been just as crazy in your neck of the woods!  Ahhhhh!  Let’s just say I’m way behind on absolutely everything I could be way behind on and leave it at that!

However, I’m finding that I miss connecting with you via my oft ridiculous blog!  Not that I ever say anything of real interest…but at least we have that contact.

Now, naturally, I don’t have anything of value to blog about today (you know how I am), but I was reading over a couple of journal entries the other day and thought I’d share one with you…because it TOTALLY expresses how out of control my time has been!  I think I may have posted this a few years ago…but oddly enough, the message my dream was trying to get through to me STILL applies!

September 29th, 2009 (Dream Interpretation and Priorities)
“Okay…so…last night I had this dream that Bruce Willis came for a visit (fortunately my bathrooms had just been cleaned).  It was great to see Bruce, but, unfortunately, our family was so busy running here and there that we just had to drag Bruce along and never really got to spend any quality visiting time with him!  He went with us to the produce stand, and grocery shopping at Wal-Mart, to my son’s driver’s ed. class…he hung around while I cleaned the house a little and as tons of people dropped in to borrow sugar and eggs.  All too soon, he had to leave and I realized that we didn’t even get any photos with him!

Thus, I woke up thinking, “Okay…life is way too busy if Bruce Willis comes over and I don’t even have time to get my picture taken with him!  Slow down!”

Slowing down is about to be forced upon me by way of the fact that Kevin and I have to go to the DMV this morning to get the car registration thingy done.  Undoubtedly that will take most of the day.  So, I guess I’ll be slowing down all right…but I still won’t get my picture with Bruce Willis if he drops by!  Good grief!  I have GOT to get my priorities in line!”

Seriously!  Life IS way too busy if Bruce Willis drops by and you don’t even have time to sit down for a chat and snap a photo with him!  And that got me to thinking, that I haven’t even done one of my pointless blog contests in like weeks!

Therefore, in honor of my renewed determination to slow things down and truly enjoy the holidays this time of year, here’s a new “Random Contest” for us:

I LOVE The Cracker Barrel restaurant!  I love the old-fashioned, “home cooked” menu!  I love the itty bitty bottles of maple syrup you get when you order pancakes!  I love the decor and the ambiance!  But most of all I LOVE the gift shop!  LOVE it!  And especially at this time of year!  (I bought a new Halloween shirt there in October that was to DIE for!)

Therefore, this week’s contest is for a $25 Gift Card to The Cracker Barrel!  You can use it for a mean OR spend it in the gift shop!  Either way, it’ll be fun!  So just leave a comment on my blog concerning…oh…let’s say…anything wonderful!…and you’ll be entered to win the $25 Cracker Barrel Gift Card!  Don’t love randomness?!

    I had to laugh about no time for a Bruce Willis visit. I think when I attempted to fit a perfectly fictitious character from one of my fav books into my everyday life that was from a glam period movie that was when I realized I was dreaming. (-;

    Our family loves Cracker Barrel and my mother is constantly trying to sneak those little containers of syrup home in her purse. I’m pretty sure the waitress sees her, but lets her maintain her dignity by not catching her out.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    Cracker Barrel is especially great this time of year when the oversized fireplace is roaring. The smell of wood burning is just heavenly and makes one want to eat an extra hearty breakfast.
