My Favorite Number!

You Are the 7

You value personal growth. If you're not changing, it's likely something is going wrong in your life.

You are a lucky person, but it's partially due to how you've crafted you're life.

You are a great leader, and you lead without your ego. You know where you're going, and others want to follow.

You are comfortable with and really appreciate freedom. You think it's important to be able to do your own thing.

All I Want for Christmas is a Cure


Augie and I are almost ready for our half marathon!

We are training together (sometimes!) to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training (TNT), and will run in the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in January 2012.

2012 will mark the tenth year we have been without B.B. Ten long years. A mother and a grandmother lost way too early. Please join us to help fund a cure for all blood cancers, and to provide aid to current patients and their families.

Since its inception in 1988, TNT has trained more than half a million athletes, and raised$1.2 billlion to help find a cure. In addition, 75% of all the money we raise goes directly to the LLS mission of funding research and drug trials as well as helping patients and their families.

Some facts:

  • Every 4 minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer.
  • There are currently over 950,000 people living with or in remission from a blood cancer in North America.
  • In the last 40 years, leukemia cure rates have gone from 5% to over 90%.
  • In the last decade, half of the FDA approved cancer drugs were for blood cancers,many funded by LLS.
  • Many of those LLS funded drugs have since been proven viable treatments for other cancers such as breast, colon, and stomach.
  • Last year, LLS contributed $20 million in patient aid to help defray costs.

Please consider a donation to our goal of raising $7000 to help find a cure.... Every little bit helps.

Click HERE to donate. And Thank You to my Bloggy friends who have already given so generously.

This-n-That Thursday

Due to much procrastination,
this is a day of much scurrying about...
And that is that.

Tell me something random.
And funny.

Quizzy Wednesday

This is a fun one.....

You're the type of person who thinks quickly and moves even faster.

You like to be challenged, and you get bored if things get too easy.

You are brilliant and focused. You give most things your all, and you're downright aggressive.

You would be more balanced if you cooled down a bit. Give yourself at least a few minutes a day where you don't do anything.

Some of it true, some of it close......What Does Your Dosha Say About You?

Today, I am an Eight-Year-Old Boy

Make sure you have your volume turned up!
My favorite part is at the very last when you hear a mom say, "Okay, I think we're done here."
I really am a little boy on the inside;)

Tuesday Text: Parentexting™

I think they're trying to kill me:
I think she's stalking me. And when the Giants win like that, it needs a facebook status.
If anyone can name the author and the book in the above quote,
I'll think of something good to send you.
No cheating.
I will know.

Dec 12, 2011
Today's Horoscope for Aquarius

Your mind is going a thousand miles an hour. Different ideas, interests, goals, and projects could dart through your mind all day. Write them down! Go through the list to see which ideas are workable, which are immediate, and which can wait for later. Take a long walk before bed or you might not be able to sleep.

I don't know about you, but when there's an exclamation point in my Monday horoscope, I automatically feel tired. Can somebody think of some ideas, goals and projects that are good for me? And then can you write them down? And send them to me? Thanks. I need a nap.

How does yours look?

  • Going off to work and having it be my last day for the week.
How about you?

More role reversal. Sorta...
A Red Bull?
At night?
I'd have to be hospitalized.
Obviously I am that old.
Seriously, I open one silly package and now we never let it go?
And in 9 sleeps, she will be home to shop with mama!

Spicy but Pleasant

Today's Aquarius Horoscope from Cafe Astrology

Relationships tend to be spicy but pleasant today, dear Aquarius. You can feel inspired by your conversations and the connections you make right now, and your intimate life can get a boost with extra attention and natural acceptance. Friends are supportive and intrigued with your point of view.

Now I ask you? Could it be any more mellow and cozy for a Monday morning? And that potluck dinner I'm going to at church tonight? Hmmm.

Is yours this good?
