More Love and Another Thing…

I want to say that I have been teary-eyed for 48 hours at the support you are all giving this family. We’ve already raised enough money to hook up the family with the disabled twin girls and THEN SOME (They are receiving over 2000 so far). As I said in my first post about this, I know we can’t help everyone, but The Regional Center gave Sadie so much help and the best therapists and it’s because of them that at three-years-old my little Sadie who started out this life waaaay behind is happy, healthy, spirited (okay I may have to blame my genes for that nonsense) and not showing any deficits. Not only did these therapists help Sadie, they helped the rest of the family because having a child with issues is exceptionally hell. But guess what, having a child or children that require intervention and not having any financial resources is a hotter kind of hell.

Because the Purple Room adopted family is getting such a large gift now (because you all rock!), I would like to give any more donations that come in to a fourteen-year-old disabled girl (green room adoptee) whose family only asked for a therapy walker that unfortunately costs 1500. If I don’t raise enough for Sage Academy to buy the walker, we’ll give the family whatever money we raise.

If any of you know a company that would want to sponsor this gift let me know. I will be happy to give anyone who asks the tax ID number to make your gift tax deductible. But seriously, HOW PHENOMENAL WILL YOU FEEL WHEN I POST PICTURES OF THIS GIRL GETTING A NEW THERAPY WALKER?? You will turn into such a bragasaurus showing pictures to all your friends and blabbing that your money bought a disabled 14-year-old a walker. No one will be able to deal with you and your swelled head and giving heart. You will be the opposite of the grinch! Your heart will be TWO SIZES TOO BIG!! And now MORE PUBLICITY! Remember, any gift over 5 bucks gets mentioned on this blog. PAYPAL me babyonbored@gmail.com or go to my little Donation button on my sidebar!

P.S. once again, please don’t even think of donating if this makes you in any way uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable to ask for it so I get it. I just figure if I don’t ask, she may not get it so may as well try. Plus, FREE PUBLICITY! DID I MENTION THE SHOUTOUTS?? I’m only doing this until Tuesday night so help a motha out!

Inner Fat Girl is a blog that speaks to anyone who has lost weight and then gained a scosh (did I spell that right?) or two scoshes of lbs back. Her dad told her that no matter how much weight she loses she’d still feel fat inside and she’s trying to prove him wrong!

Spark In Indexing is a blogger who has a business where she indexes your stuff. This seems like it would really come in handy to people who need indexing. I’m more of a self indexer but I know a lot of people who are index challenged. Go check it out and see who it’s for. Maybe YOU.

Do you know Ellie? Have you met Ellie? This woman has done more for drunks than Botox has done for wrinkles. I’m plugging her blog, Crying Out Now, that tells stories of women struggling with booze and from there you can link to her real blog. I love this women.

Kirstin at The Norwindians just got diagnosed with Diabetes (I think.) She’s blogging about her kids, her new life plan and her need to avoid her biggest love (AND MINE) mint Oreos. Great blog.

The next blog is called Not Just a Wife and if you read it you’ll see that there’s a lot more going on than just plain old wifery. Is wifery even a word? My spell check says no but it really sounds like a word to me. Anyway, the blog’s author is just plain cool and has a potty mouth. If I was Oprah, a potty mouth would make my list of favorite things.

The Real Mommy Chronicles tag line says “Reporting from the trenches…and park benches” gotta love a line like that. Why didn’t I think of it? She is a stay-at-home mom now who used to work a lot which many of you can relate to. I know I can. Good writing. Check it out.

Erin at Only I Am Allowed To Yell gave a sweet donation and when I checked out her blog I saw that she made a recipe she got off of the Pioneer Woman’s website. So then I thought, you know what would be good for her? She should make all the recipes from that website and report back. That could be her hook! Maybe that’s what I should do is give everyone direction on their blogs in exchange for their donation. I may be onto something. You’re welcome.

Would you like to enrich your life? Live more purposefully? Express who you really are in your daily activities?
Do you feel out of balance? Would you like to experience more joy? Enjoy more energy and live more healthfully? I answered yes to all these questions. If you did too, go to this website True Essence Coaching and let them fix you up!

Next up – In a Miniskirt. She’s a redhead with fashion sense -two things I aspire to. The blog’s author is a Montana girl, cooker, inspirer whose partner has another cool blog called Oubetcha where he sells very cute country clothes with an edge. Go ahead visit the blog, buy a t-shirt. Then I can say, I went, I read, I bought the T-shirt. If you want to talk like that. Which you probably do.

    I’m so glad that so many people are reaching out and helping. We’ve been ‘that’ family. We were fortunate enough that we qualified for free services for Joey through First Steps which is the same program but with a different name because we live in a different state. Joey started receiving developmental, physical, and speech therapies at 13 months old. He’s now in preschool and still receiving speech, occupational, and physical therapies. But he’s catching up. Without all the extra services he received from 13 months until preschool….I know he’d be much further behind. It’s hard to have a child with delay’s and when the generosity of others pour out to help with those therapies, it takes off some of the rough edges.
