Are My Ears Burning? Is That A Giveaway I Hear?

***********We Have A Winner!***********
                   Congrats...Heather! aka Ham1299 :)
Confession time...

I don't own an Ipod or MP3 player...I don't even own a Walkman or Discman...and I'm really embarassed by it.

Our kids own Ipods, and I think Mark might have grabbed an old Shuffle from one of the kids rooms recently, but alas I am Ipod/MP3 poor.

But it's not because I don't like music...I love music, lots of different kinds of music (I'm listening to the Pride & Prejudice soundtrack on Youtube right now as I type). I'm just afraid of these...

yes, I'm afraid of earbuds.

And I've got good reason...

Kaitlin came home for her fall break from college and as usual she brought with her every possible item from her dorm room that could be shoved into a washing machine. As since I missed her soooo much I decided to help her out with her laundry. And around the 11th or 12th load, as I was turning out her pockets, I found a pair of earbuds. And having never used a pair before, I got curious, found my laptop, plugged in and stuck those cute little things right in my ears.

And I spent the rest of the week, using the cute little things whenever I got on the laptop. Sunday came and it was time for Kaitlin to drive back to school. And as she was finishing packing her car the earbuds sprung to mind. I ran into the house and grabbed the cute little things and said, "Kaitlin, here's your earbuds, I borrowed them, I hope that was okay." and Kaitlin turned to me with a quizzical look on her face and said, "Earbuds? Those aren't mine. Oh wait! I remember now, I found those in the bathroom before I left to come home and I must have forgotten to turn them in to 'Lost & Found'. I don't know who's those belong too."

The bathroom on her dorm floor. Shared by 20 or 30 other girls. Found somewhere (I don't want to know where) in the bathroom.

Ugh...

So after I had been on the antibiotics for a few days, I decided that I would buy my own pair of earbuds...old school style...
I might get that discman after all...

So to celebrate antibiotics, music and all you wonderful moms out there...I'm having a giveaway!

here's the giveaway...

My mum enjoys many types of music, right now she listens to a lot of country.

(BTW, get an ipod G5 Nana, (the ipods that come in different colours) they have built in speakers so you don't need headphones at all! (unless you want radio and they they do need the earbuds they came with but not for music you put on it, the choice is yours.) Also they have a built in video camera and pedometre. I think mine cost about $150
What a IPOD story girl! Well, my mom loves Christian music. Her favorite music is Old time gospel. She loves the old hymns. When I was growing up her favorite music was Patsy Clines, Jim Reeves, Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty! To this day I cannot listen to Patsy Cline without thinking about my mom. I love her too. My mom always reminded me Patsy Cline when I was growing up...but....she couldn't sing like her! Ha! Happy Mother's Day to you Deb! What a blessing you are. Be Blessed. Cindy
