It's November end and as I promised this month's review includes status of my goals collectively for both the months, October and November.

Goal 1 - Cooking - PASS. Thanks to Hyderabad. :) We are not getting any decent cook here, so I am cooking everyday and so far enjoying it completely. WOW!
Goal 2 - Budget - Don't Know. My Savings is on track, in fact more then on track, so I am assuming that even if I am spending little more, it's OK!
Goal 3 - Save for Mortgage - PASS.
Goal 4 - Save for Retirement - PASS.
Goal 5 - Obsession for tracking - PASS.
Goal 6 - Swimming - Don't Know - Have dropped it for now.
Goal 7 - Healthy Eating - PASS.
Goal 8 - Extra Earnings - PASS. I completed my annual target in November itself. Now whatever I am going to get in December is additional. :)

My First Lottery Win feels WOW!

Yes, you read it correctly. No I am not a gambling addict but as i have mentioned so many times I am jinxed ;)

Little background, before 26th November 2010, I had never ever won any lottery. I never won Tambola/Housie :(. In fact, I was so unlucky that I have never heard my name in any chit picking game. Once in my college, our lab seats were to be decided by picking up the slips and out of 40 students, I was the last one whose name slip never got picked and I had to take the last seat left :(

But not anymore. On 26th November, in our office party, I won in Tambola, not one but two prizes. One first five and then completing third row.

Do you wanna know how it felt, awesome, purely awesome. I am feeling so lucky again :)

Just wondering how some small things cam make you feel almost half of your age, and no I am not revealing mine :D
