Someone pinch me! I can't believe this has happened, but I actually won something!!
Those of you who read lots of blogs know how common sponsor giveaways are. Some blogs have them weekly, some more often, it seems. I usually find myself drooling over whatever is being offered, but I rarely enter for several reasons.
1. I don't need or won't use or already have whatever it is. If I have something similar that fills the need, I figure it's better to let someone more "worthy" or "deserving" win. Go figure.
2. I'm not a regular reader of the blog. I downright refuse to enter a contest on a blog I don't read. I just don't think that's right.
3. I'm a pessimist at heart. I never win anyway.
Um, except today!! Today, I won a totally awesome and 100% functional Extend-A-Step Ladder from Sarah at the Ugly Duckling House! WAHOO! When I entered the giveaway, I never thought I would win, but I genuinely wanted one of these babies:
And, after sending my neighbor's trusty old extension ladder through our guestroom window over the summer, I had sworn off any exterior home maintenance that involved leaving the ground. And now after winning one of these, I have renewed confidence in myself and gutter cleaning.
Thank you Sarah and Extend-A-Step!!
