Random Tuesday Thoughts - Movies and Wins

It's Tuesday!  Which means it's time for another edition of Random Tuesday Thoughts, hosted by Stacy Uncorked.

I fared decent in Facebook wins recently.  A couple weeks ago I won a $50 County Market gift card from a local Facebook promotion.  Admittedly, I spent it on frivolous things.  Then a couple days later I won a ceiling fan of choice up to $300 from a Facebook promotion hosted by Hunter Fan Company.  Whoo hoo, go me!
Last week me and Shelby, my oldest daughter, went to the movies and watched 'The Boy Next Door' starring Jennifer Lopez.  Not bad, but predictable for sure.  If you've ever watched one of those Lifetime movies about a student who falls for a teacher, it's not much different than that.

As I mentioned, Shelby is my oldest daughter.  She's almost 21 years old and has a full plate.  She plays roller derby, works nights as a Psych Tech, and attends college part-time.  Because of that (or so she says) her apartment leaves a lot to be desired.  With dishes piled up and clothes lying everywhere, it was close to making it on an episode of Hoarders.

My son, bless his heart, went over there Sunday afternoon to clean her apartment while she slept after a night's work.  He even brought cleaning supplies and the vacuum over!  A few hours later and lots of elbow grease, he got her place back in decent shape.  I'd say she owes him big time!

And if she hasn't already got one of the boys to do her bidding, Shelby has talked my other son into attending some sort of Symphonic Orchestra Russian Dance Musical Thingy.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.  But I'm not so sure Adam know exactly what he agreed to!  She's gonna owe him big time!
Do you enter contests or giveaways?  What's your randomness for the week?

I used to enter giveaways all the time. I would win little things like candy bars or coupons for free items, but I think I got burnt out after some time. I haven't won anything big like you have!

I used to enter blog giveaways all the time, but now I just enter them occasionally, and I usually win small stuff. In the past I won a custom made cordless window shade for my daughter's room (LOVE it) and tons of movies, games, books, and toys for my kids. I miss the thrill of winning and getting free stuff to try out, but I just don't have as much time as I used to.
I am sending Logan a plane ticket to Georgia--tell him no need to bring cleaning supplies. I have plenty that have NEVER BEEN USED :) You must have sweet boys to be so kind to their sister like that.

You have very thoughtful boys. I win lots of giveaways but Im going through a dry spell.

I did win a FB food item lately. That ceiling fan I so could use. Ours just went out. It must be a short somewhere in it because we just replaced the bulb. My husband even checked the bulb out under a flashlight. It's ok, but the fan isn't.

I enter an assortment of giveaways and sweepstakes daily, though not as many as in past years. I am at home much of the time, and on disability due to chronic physical illness - and entering contests is a fun distraction from my pain.

Your daughter is very lucky to have such a loving, caring brother! Hope she'll return his favor one day when he needs it just as much!
