Buy a cozy, send money to Haiti

All cozy sale proceeds at my Etsy shop this weekend will be donated to Partners In Health, an organization in Haiti that provides health care to the poor. Partners In Health began in Haiti and is now worldwide.

You can read the amazing story of Dr. Paul Farmer and PIH in the book "Mountains Beyond Mountains" by Pulitizer Prize-winning author Tracy Kidder. It's one of the most inspiring things I've ever read!

Learn more about Partners In Health and donate right from their website at

And don't forget to buy a cozy - get something cute and your money will go to help those in Haiti who need medical attention and basic living necessities.

Maybe I can do this more often . . .

• Day 1 of Trying Tea Instead Of Coffee: 50% successful. Tea this morning but coffee this afternoon.

• Today I had lunch with my BFF from Cowley dance team. It’s amazing how we’ve been through so much and so many of the same things together. Danced together, transferred to state universities, didn’t graduate. She moved to Chicago. We both got married, had babies (well, one of mine came before we got married). Then I moved to Chicago – together again! Then she divorced, remarried and moved back to KS. More babies for her, more babies for me. Hopefully no divorce and definitely no more babies for me – her 4th will be here in a few months. I miss her a lot. Thank God for the internet!

• I start a new class tomorrow night: Building Public and Financial Support. I.E. how to fundraise. There are 2 texts – one strictly about fundraising (I have to say that this seems like a part of non-profit work I am NOT interested in. Too bad for me, as it’s a major part of making a NPO work!) and the other already has me in love just from the title: “Organizing for Social Change: Midwest Academy Manual for Activists”. You have to say it out loud with your fist in the air.

• Here’s some music for you:

This post will be a whole lot of random, please forgive me.

~ I love the feeling of security I get from grocery shopping. You might think I grew up hungry but I can't remember a time when I didn't have more than enough to eat. It just feels very comforting to have a full fridge and cupboard. I daydream about a separate freezer and the money for meat from some animal that has been raised all healthy-like.

~ I'm drinking a Mike's Hard Lemonade - Light. I don't recommend this purchase to anyone else, it's got a real disinfectant thing going on. Yet I continue drinking it! I guess if I drink enough of it I might not taste it anymore.

~ Who am I fooling? I don't have enough brain cells awake to write anything of substance. I'm going to just play Guitar Hero and go to bed.

~ Here's some music for you:
