Well, here we are! Monday. The voting is all done and as I suspected, there is no info on the animal rescue site. It says it will let us know on Wednesday! So now we just need to wait through two more "sleeps". Does anyone remember when that is how time was measured? I remember my mom saying "only two more sleeps and it will be Easter, Christmas, your birthday or until we go to ____ (fill in the blank). I also remember using this same system of time measurement with my DD, nieces and nephews.
No matter what the outcome is, we did the very best that we could possibly do. lol! < sign says, "Yea, team!"
At the last count we were ahead by .11 %
So in order for them to pass us by they would have to have at least .12 % of the vote, providing we got no votes at all on the last two days. So even with minimal votes, they would have had to have a huge number of votes to pass us. I would be hard-pressed to belive that could have happened but I also saw how fast we pushed into 1st place, so, anything is possible.
It is very early in the a.m. here and I am feeling the effects of yesterdays projects. My knees and hips do not want to cooperate with my mind. Stiff and sore. Also retaining a lot of water. I suppose it is my body's way of trying to protect itslef from what it might have thought I was trying to do to it. I fell asleep in the puter chair while I was watching TV. So, now I am off to lala land.
(((((HUGGS)))))
AND... THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH for helping in this contest. It was great fun!Laughing

Hello, my friends, hello! Wednesday. It is Wednesday.
Most of you may have seen this on BFG already. Sorry it took so long to get here today. Life interrupted me.

Laughing WE WON! Laughing
lol! WE WON! lol!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH

I know we couldn't have done it without you. Before you all started to vote, from here and BFG our % was going up very slowly! On the radio today they announced the win and they said the last couple weeks all of a sudden we started to pick up votes from all over the world. I had to chuckle and smile. I knew it was all of you and the people you passed the info on to. I have never met a more caring group of friends! Laughing

They are going to have another one starting in May. I suggested over at BFG that maybe we have a contest to pick a new Shelter to vote for. I am not good at organizing a contest but I will go with whoever gets picked and vote for that one.

The official rules are posted over there at the Animal Rescue Site so maybe some of you would want to see what it takes to get your local shelters involved.

I am on top of the world. It is because of you!
WE WON!
