About three weeks ago, I entered a short story writing contest sponsored by a new store in Orillia that officially opened today.  I just got home from delivering papers when I got the call.  I won third prize, a $50 gift certificate.  Woo hoo!  I have to bring the boys to the library tonight for their Teen Survivor party so since I’ll be downtown anyways, I’ll get to pick up my moulah and look around Ecocentric all by lonesome.  I’m sure that $50 will be spent pretty quickly.

Speaking of money, the boys have dollar signs in their eyeballs too.  They let the neighbour’s dog out today and found that the owner had left $20 for each of them for their “hard” work.  I’m pretty sure those dollaros will get spent lickity split too.
