11-11-11

I've been looking forward to today.

11-11-11

Mainly because I have a connection to the number ELEVEN.

(Why in heaven’s name are there so few words that rhyme with eleven?
 I ask you…Kevin, Devin?)

In college...my connection to the Number 11 was with my digital clock. 

Every time I would check the time...it would have eleven in it.
I’d wake up at 6:11 am…well, maybe not that early.
I'd go to bed at 1:11am...well, maybe not that early.
 
But before that:

The first and last time I won something/anything had to do with the number ELEVEN.
(I was the Number 11 contestant in a Halloween costume contest.  Okay, so I was 11.)


I loved visiting my grandmother's camp…called Number 11.
(a building that previously belonged to the electric company over a raging VT river.)

AND to top it off…

My first born, Chelsea, weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces...
lucky for me she wasn't 11.11.


 
My 11 obsession has become a natural progression.

Anywhooooooo........


Many people (including this Kat) are hoping 11-11-11 is Lucky..............

that's why people…are playing the lottery with the Number 11...

Going to Vegas…and hitting the craps table…come on ELEVEN

Getting married, hoping to make it at least 11 years and 11 days

and having a child.
(If you are a planner….you were ‘getting busy’ last Valentines Day...
or you’ve planned a c-section for today.
which is such a better birth date than those little devils born five years ago on 6-6-6.)



So enjoy the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year.
You would have to stick around for another century to see it again!
So make a BIG wish.

I'm hoping I can time the posting of this blog for exactly
11:11 on 11-11-11…
that will make me one lucky Kat.

And my wish?

MORE blog readers…

At least 11 readers more than the 11
I have now.



ps.  We honor all the Veterans who have served this great country on this memorable Veteran's Day.
