My winning husband

The local Christian radio station sponsored a contest for Indy 500 tickets.  You had to call in and give them a story about why you should get tickets.  Clay decided to enter, even though neither one of us really care about the Indy 500. I’m not sure why he did, because neither one of us ever win anything like that.  That kind of stuff happens to other people.  But he did, and then he called me yesterday morning and told me to listen in at the drawing time to see if he won.  I almost didn’t even do it, because I figured the chances were less than slim to none that he would win.  Well, the winner at 8:30 was Mallory and I almost switched it off when I heard them say that they had drawn a winner at 7:30 and it was Clay who had said he wanted to be able to do something fun with his family!!!  We still weren’t 100% sure until later in the morning when they called him to confirm.  He actually won tickets to the Indy 500!  So we called Somerset; if someone didn’t come up to stay with our kids we couldn’t go, but since it’s a holiday weekend, my sister said she could come.  So we’re going!  We’ll get a whole day just the two of us, and still have Monday to spend as a family.  How cool is that!  Now, if only we can all afford the gasoline to get us where we want to be….
