Funny thing...

Over the past two months I have adopted a dog, purchased a new car & witnessed my grandson's birth...

I am still taking less pictures than I have over the last 2 years!

(OK- I think my camera is dying or in need of maintenance)

OK- I found out this week that I have better credit then my hubby! So I got to pick the new car! My van has been on her last legs for a while. We plan to put the last bit needed into her & give the van to Step so Grandcub has a safer ride to Dr. appointments.

I feel in love with this when I drove it! Feels like a Jeep with more leg room!

I'm happy

My sister sent this email today:
Most of you know that I work with pregnant and parenting teens from the lowest economic levels who have been traditionally unsuccessful at school. Last year they lobbied successfully to get a prom at our school. Through much hard work they raised enough to have it at a local hall with security at the doors and good music etc. This year they are doing it again and this program came up which can be a great help to us to make the night even more special for them.

We also get help from the local group Operation Glass Slipper which connects donated gowns, shoes and accessories with girls who cant afford to buy them. (most of the gowns are new and donated by the stores and others)

Here is how you can help:

Give 30 seconds of your time to vote every day until March 13th.

We appreciate all your votes and support to Broadway High School!!

(Broadway High School's Student Council has committed to donate 30% of prom funds raised to a local charity: Catholic Charities)

Thanks so much on behalf of my girls: (all 187 of them as of today)

I know it's not local but I hear the stories everyday about these girls. Help them out!
