We have our finalists! A day late! I’m really sorry about that, but I promise I have good reasons – you can read my sob story at the end of this post if you’re interested.
Congratulations to the 20 finalists – you will need to email me (kelsey[at]vanillajoy[dot]com) a 200 word essay explaining why you need/deserve to win the Minibox. We will read your essays and select the winner based on your essays. Please get your essay to me by September 28. I will announce the final winner October 1. Good luck! (I put the comment number, which I now realize doesn’t actually show up except when I log in to my account, so you can disregard the numbers.)
If you didn’t win and want to purchase a MiniBox or WorkBox, you can get a special Vanilla Joy offer. Email me if you’re interested and I’ll fill you in on the details. Thanks!
Thank you all for your enthusiastic participation. I’m sorry you couldn’t all win one!
And now for the story – I can’t do anything on the computer while my son is awake, and he didn’t take his nap until 2:00 yesterday because he’s sick and can’t sleep very well (probably something to do with the copious snot flow). While I was rocking him to sleep, the power went out which meant that my desktop computer wouldn’t work at all and I couldn’t get internet on my laptop. I had to wake him up at 3:30 (power still out) to drive to Orem to run some time sensitive errands and transcribe 2 classes for 2 deaf students at UVU. I got home at about 8:30, was starving to death, took over trying to get my sick baby to bed (husband was worn out from trying), and finally finished at 10:30. I appreciate all of your kind comments in yesterday’s “Apologies” post – you guys are the best!
