Thank You for Helping Me... Meet My Goal (and then some!)

I can't thank you all enough... the support I have received has been tremendous. As of right now, 10:20 a.m., I have raised $125.00 in online donations and $20.00 in cash donations. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!

If anybody is reading this and you would like to sponsor me for the Race for the Cure that I'll be participating in tomorrow, Saturday, September 15th, please visit my personal page by clicking on the link below. I will be walking in memory of Wilma Seeley who passed away this past December.

Komen Northeast Ohio Race for the Cure® Saturday, September 15, 2007 at a new location

Dear Friends and Family,

Help me celebrate a 25 year Anniversary! I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support The Komen Northeast Ohio Race for the Cure® on September 15th in the fight against breast cancer. One in eight women will be stricken with breast cancer in her lifetime and the more we raise, the more the Northeast Ohio Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure can give back to fund vital breast cancer education, screening and treatment programs in our own community and support the national search for a cure.

Click here to visit my personal page and pledge your support.

Please join me in the fight by pledging in support of my participation in the Race or contributing generously to The Komen Northeast Ohio Race for the Cure®. Your tax-deductible contribution will fund innovative outreach and awareness programs for medically underserved communities in Northeast Ohio and national breast cancer research. It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make a donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. If you would prefer, you can also send your tax-deductible contribution to me to turn in with the rest of my sponsorships on Race Day. Please note my name in the memo line of your check so I receive credit for your sponsorship. Whatever you can give will help! I truly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress.

Thank you so much for your time and support in the fight against breast cancer! Every step counts!

What's Gone Wrong... the world?? I just don't get it.

All the money, time, effort spent searching for Jessie Davis breaks my heart. Now her poor son is left an orphan. All he has left is a horrifying memory of "Mommy's in a rug" and a father who will likely spend the rest of his life in prison at the very least (too bad we're not in Texas, where they'll kill you back). It just makes me sad. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with this family as they have been from the start. All that I can hope for is that time will help heal them, and I know that this family is strong. Blake will be ok because of this and will one day see how much the community loves him and his mommy.

Then there's Paris. I'm not going to spend a lot of time on this one because she gets way too much press and people writing about her as it is, but I just can't figure out what it is about her that makes her newsworthy. She's a twit, as far as I'm concerned. So her parents have money. Whoopty-doo-dah... She broke the law, she should have had to serve time in the general population in jail like any other person who broke the law, not treated any differently, and she certainly shouldn't have made headlines over it.

Ok, I've dished enough for now...

Venting always makes my heart feel lighter... :)

Hello! This is a new spot for me to blog. I normally blog on Yahoo and on MySpace, but sometimes it's nice to have a spot to blog where maybe necessarily I don't want everyone knowing what I'm saying. So this is cool. Maybe I'll even find someone that I know on here, who knows! I may even meet some cool people. That'd be chill too...

I'm from Ashtabula county in a small village called Jefferson. I'm 31, with two daughters and I'm inheriting a step-son. I work in a hospital as well as a medical staff coordinator.

It would be nice to network with others and get to know people, so hit me up. Talk to you soon!
