Winning The Big House

You can get money in many ways. You can inherit or be born into money. You can marry into it (only really good if you aren't marrying for the money). You can even work hard for it (truly, it works). And of course, you can win it!

For those of you checking the blog to confirm the rumor, read on. Those of you who haven't heard yet, well, you might as well hear it from the source. It is public knowledge now, and anyway, no secrets can be kept once our family and friends get ahold of it.

On Wednesday, my parents' name was drawn for the Grand Prize in the Peace Arch and Delta Hospitals Win'Fall Ocean View Lottery, or its cash equivalent.

Needless to say, we are surprised and amazed. I am especially happy for my parents as this will allow them to retire early, and spend more time doing the things they want to.

Congrats, Mom & Dad!
