My sweepstaking hasn't been paying off

I love to sweepstake but I hate when I don't win. I don't expect to win most of the sweepstakes that I enter but I do like to win some. The only problem is that I haven't won anything in over 2 months. I didn't win anything at all in January and I've only won 1 prize in February. That win hasn't been confirmed yet either.

I would like to say that I'm patiently waiting to win but I'm not a patient person. Still I try. Here's hoping I win something soon.

Sweepstaking can pay off

But boy do you have to keep at it. I haven't been sweepstaking for a while though. I took almost a 4 year break between entering. I would enter here and there if it was something that I really wanted but I wasn't too gung-ho about it. Well in the past 4 or 5 months I've become really enthusiastic about it again. Especially once I started winning little prizes here and there.

As long as I'm having fun I'll stick with it. But once it becomes a chore again, I'll stop for a while. A hobby is not supposed to feel like work. Once it does, it's time for a new hobby.

I'm saving my pennies for vacation

I wasn't sure whether I could afford a vacation this year or not. Then my friend told me that her and her fiance were having one of those destination weddings and I just knew I had to go. Since it's only adults going, we're looking at the El Dorado Royale Spa Resort. It has everything that we need.

The suites at the hotel has king-size Jacuzzis and veranda hammocks. As if that's not enough for relaxation, they also offer a artificial river and a swim up bar. For us non-romantics they have scuba lessons and beach side fitness classes. Everything you need to have a good time.

I think I'll start packing my lunch to save money. This is one trip I'm not gonna miss.
