Your prizes are on the way.

Seriously. I wouldn’t joke about this. To the lucky winners of our New Year Giveaway, YOUR PRIZES ARE ALL IN THE MAIL AT LAST. Sam drove them to the post office this morning while I was still asleep.

In other news, it’s spring in Dallas! The temperature today — and forecast for the entire week — is in the low 70s. I haven’t been out of the house lately because my left hand is still a claw and I can’t drive, but there’s no reason I can’t sit on the patio for a few minutes and enjoy some fresh air. The back yard will be a little drab for the next few weeks, though, until our lawn is green again, our Oklahoma redbud tree starts to bloom and our new cedar fence is installed. (The fence will be a very big deal. Sam is still collecting estimates.)

In case you’re interested, here are …

The top 5 things I’m sick of reading about in the news:
  1. That President Obama is not a U.S. citizen.
  2. Anything concerning Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin’s ambitions, Sarah Palin’s whiny offspring or Sarah Palin’s mind-numbing opinions.
  3. Barely pubescent Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, who looks and sounds exactly like a 14-year-old girl.
  4. Iraq and Afghanistan.
  5. Red carpet photos from endless awards shows, where overpaid, overexposed and overappreciated celebrities throw parties to congratulate themselves for their own accomplishments.
Over the years I’ve actually become extremely Sam-like where that last item is concerned. I know he’s going to smile when he reads this. Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all.
