Anyway, we started off this morning late because
Jeff and Lisa are giving away tickets in a few minutes. You need to try and win them again." I had tried the day before, but couldn't get through. As you may remember, my first concert was to see Barry Manilow. These were tickets for
Michael Buble. WOW! Love him! "Great, I'll add that to my to do list today" I thought. But, I paused a minute and listened for the trivia question anyway.
"For front row Michael Buble tickets....what will 1.7 Million men do today, but may not admit it" Lisa asked.
The calls started pouring in. They got every answer from picking their noses to using moisturizer to calling their mama (which was Hubby's answer). I practically pushed Hubby and the kids out the door as I was dialing like a mad woman - one phone in each hand. Busy. Busy. Busy. All the while, I was googling the answer, to no avail. Then, I found it........"Watch Oprah". Thank you Google!!! I continued to dial like a crazy woman. Then, it started ringing, and ringing, and ringing. "I refuse to hang up" I thought. It rang about fifty times before Lisa answered and I immediately started crying.
Lisa asked the question again. "Watch Oprah", I said in a quivering voice.
"I hope you like Michael Buble", Jeff said "because you'll be watching him from the first row Tuesday night!"
"NO WAY!" was my response with tears streaming down my cheeks. "I never win anything!"
I was so excited that by the time they got my name, etc. I was literally sobbing and could barely speak. They probably thought I was completely NUTS, although they did say it was "sweet". I realize that Jeff and Lisa do this EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. but what they don't realize is that for this completely nuts mother of four, living on one income and barely making ends meet, living with an autistic child and all that goes with it, whose most exciting daily outing is to Wal-Mart, that this is as big as going on Oprah and meeting Michael Buble in person. They don't realize that I've been dying to see Michael Buble for years. They don't realize that I would have NEVER been able to go without them. I certainly couldn't have gone out and spent $$ to buy my own tickets. This is a Christmas blessing meant just for me. I am sure that they thought I was crying because I was excited. They don't realize that they just made my dream come true. Thanks Jeff and Lisa.

Hope all my bloggy friends are feeling as blessed as I am today!
Okay, gotta go grab my Kleenex box again.
