Big F******* Deal! Grand Forks Style & DC Style

Remember my bet with Doug? I bet that we would finally see the Christmas lights this past Sunday. These are the lights on Sunday. . . .

and these are the lights today! Actually, they were visible 3 days before my deadline, and 2 1/2 weeks before we reached Doug's date. So. . . . I WON! I WON!

And some of you asked what it was that I would win, if I won. I won the Grand Kahuna, the best-thing-of-all in a bet with your spouse. I won the ultimate pleasure of. . .

I WAS RIGHT AND HE WAS WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And when dealing with dear husbands, that always counts for a lot. Unless we want to change the terms of the bet and let me win a Nikon lens. . . because THEN we'd be talking!

But a real Big F* * * * * * * Deal today was this:

Now that is a prize in itself to have the Im right your wrong award. Yeah I hear you on the Big F in deal.

It really "is" a big deal to be right when it comes to challenges with the hubby :).. And as for the other, it "is" a big something..

Love it! I would argue that being right is even more fun than that lens on your wish list.

By the way, I just read an article that says that North Dakota is among the states with the lowest stress levels, in large part because the economic woes haven't been felt as strongly as in other states, like Michigan, for example. So, there's one upside for putting up with the weather.

Lastly, I never thought I'd see Healthcare Reform passed in my lifetime. The words of The Dalai Lama keep running through my head: "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

I think winning bragging rights over the hubby is a good thing, but I'm not savvy enough to understand if you are being sarcastic about the new law or not, so I will politely refrain from sticking my foot in my mouth on that topic.

Woot, woot on the bragging rights, though! *Ü*

But we are always right. It's just nice when they admit it. ;)
