I FINALLY won tickets to Afentra's Second Chance Prom. I am SO SO SO SO SO excited. Let's not event hink about how I can't really afford the cost associated with going but I am sure I have a friend out there who wants to let me borrow a little extra cash!

Everything you can think of associated to prom, they are going to have. The only difference is that everyone there is going to be 18 or older! They are going to have a photographer with the cheesy background, a prom cover band and everyone has to wear formal attire! I am so excited!

I didn't think I had a chance. First of all, I didn't think they would have many tickets left since the prom is on Wednesday. Then, I started listening super early in the morning and heard that they would be giving away tickets everytime you heard the phrase, "Woo, I'm gassy," Or "I'm gassy, Woo."

I called the second I heard it and it started ringing...she answered and I said, " May I have tickets to the prom, please." "Mmmmm, NO!" Anfentra said! I was so crushed. I was So close to winning my tickets and then there they went becasue I didn't understand the freakin' rules. So I called over and over again throughout the day. Sometimes it was busy and another time it just rang and rang. So then, right at 10am when the show was almost over, I finally got through again! I said, "Woo, I'm gassy!" Now I have my tickets.

Elizabeth had no idea what was going on but she was just as excited as I was. I explained that I wanted to win tickets to go to a dance like the one she had gone to with her dad. She ran around the house jumping up and down saing, " I won! I won!" and "Woo, I'm gassy!" Her mother was thrilled to find out I had taught her 4 year old such a lovely phrase!

That's so cool. I was so wanting to go, too. I was angry that they didn't do it when I could go. So how was it??? I wanna know all the sordid details. Also... I just read your comment about the whole nanny thing. I was thinking about calling you to talk about it, but just hadn't gotten around to it. I know children are people too, silly. I just am a little burnt-out, that's all. I've been watching my cousin's kids lately and I'm starting to think that if I am going to be ready to have my own kid eventually, I'd better take a break from them, so I'm not burnt out when I'm a "real mommy". I am not even the same Julie I was even last year. I just don't get excited about being around kids anymore. I think I just need a break. I think the Family Service and Guidance Center kids just wore me down. Plus, I'd like to do something different for a little while. I'm not sure what yet, but... we'll see. Wow. This comment is getting really long. I proably should have just e-mailed. Anyway, love you and miss you.
