My First Giveaway!

OK - so I know you all remember the calendar saga, correct? If not, click here and here to read about it for the first time or refresh your memory. Take your time, I'll wait.

Back?

Well, I didn't tell you this - but the day that I reordered the "backwards" calendar I called my friend Donna, who was the one who had the calendar set up I liked in the first place. I am paraphrasing below, especially my "oh I am so cool" responses to her ...

"Ha ha," I emailed her, "those sillies sent me a backwards calendar - aren't I just soooo superior to them that I figured it out!"

She emailed me back, "Is that the calendar with the pocket to hold receipts?"

Me: "Yes! Can you imagine how dumb they all must feel?!?!"

D: "Rose! It's supposed to be backward - if you had January in the front, filled up the pocket and then flipped it over to February, the pocket would be upside down and everything would fall out!"

Me: "Oh. Oh yeah, that makes sense."

So I called Current right away (although honestly the person who took my second order should have had better PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE - but anyway) and said they could cancel the second calender. But - they are quite efficient in their shipping department apparently, because it had already gone out. The next morning! Props. They told me to keep it - no problem.

So ... I am giving it away to one of you!


All you have to do is answer the following question in the comments ...

What do you do when you first open a new calendar? Do you fill in everyone's birthdays immediately? Do you flip through and find your favorite pictures? Do you keep it super neat and color coded for each kid (my cousins do this) or is your calendar a big ole' mess? Any calendar info will do!

Rules:
- Contest ends Monday morning (12/8/08), 10am Eastern time. (I am giving lots of time since this is my first one.)
- One entry per person - BUT - if you tell people about this on YOUR BLOG and they mention YOUR BLOG in my comments section, you get entered twice!
- I will put all the names into a hat (or box or some sort) and Andy "the man who is afraid of calendars" will pull the winner.
- I will let you know on Tuesday who the winner is!

Good luck!

The first thing I do when I open up a calendar is to look at each month and all it has to offer: 1. The Picture if one 2. The Holidays and other Special Days, if any, for the month.
3. I do not enter anything on the calendar as I keep my information such as birthdays etc. on my computer. I was sent here by YOU!

Wow! Another give-a-way, what fun. I look at all of the pictures first then add appointments and the school calendar, after that it becomes a big ole mess. You sent me here as well.

What a great giveaway. I like calendars a lot but find that I never use them. I keep intending to put it up and months later it's still sitting there. So though I'd like to enter this giveaway my common sense says let this one pass for someone who will really use it.
