My sister pointed out that if you search for "elbie" on Google that my blog is in fact not the first link that is returned. Oh well. I shouldn't be surprised. In fact, I'm impressed that I'm (currently) the second link there. Considering there are a lot of real Elbies out there. Or, at least, their houses.
I had another run of scratch and win lottery tickets, but my luck ran out there finally. I think, this time, I won four times in a row, and my net gain was $11. I'm sure that the Ontario Lottery Commission still has taken more of my money then they've given to me, but it always seems amazing when I have these streaks. Though it's not as good as the last one.
Christmas is once again approaching far too quickly. I've finally started to get my act together a bit this year. The cards are mostly done. And more importantly, I've taken care of travel arrangements, and making sure the cats are taken care of. Still, I've done little to no shopping, and it's a bit late now to buy off of people's wish lists from Amazon. Well, it's probably fine for Amazon.ca, but ordering from the US? Forget it. *sigh*
