Thought I would let you know what I have been up to. Mother's Day was celebrated on Sat, May 11. My daughters scooped me up and we went to a local casino to play bingo and have my birthday/Mothers Day dinner. (i am used to having my birthday and mothers day just a few days apart) We checked in and bought our bingo cards and one game is a special blackout with a huge payout. The girls picked here they wanted to sit and we got settled in. The casino has the numbers pre-selected for the special blackout game and I got my handy dandy bonker out and got to work. (this is where it gets really spooky/exciting) I start bonking the numbers and low and behold one row is completely covered. Then the next row, my heart starts racing, another row is covered and of the whole card I ONLY have two numbers not covered. I am shaking and so excited that I shove the special card under some paper like someone is going to copy my answers on a test. I have to wait almost an hour before the game is called.
The caller asks if anyone has a bingo before the game begins (it's worth 50K). My little card is worth 5K if my numbers come up in the next two calls. Gang, I am shaking so bad my bonker is moving. DO YOU THINK I COULD GET THOSE STUPID TWO NUMBERS CALLED.....HOPE EVAPORATES LIKE AN ICE CUBE ON THE SIDEWALK. We didn't come away empty handed though, one daughter won a game and made a little money. Dinner was wonderful and spending time with my kids, priceless!
Here is what is on my work space right now. I found a pic and printed it out (be careful when doing this, don't want to step on anyone's toes). Then I get into my stash and start pulling colors out. That is about as far as I have gotten. It's a birthday card for a dear friend that takes quite a few days for a package to get to. So now I am off to make something spectacular!!!
Love to all, Jana
