Big Jumble O'Stuff...

I have a couple things to post about and I was going to try and spread them across the next few days but it is just not possible for my leaking brain to be able to handle that. I think the Spoonies took my brain! LOL! So, you can read all these at once or you can spread them over a couple days - whatever suits your schedule. First, a friend (and former editor) of mine has ventured out and started his own Christian publication. You can peek at it, print it and email him at VictoryExpressions (at) gmail (dot) com. But I CAN'T figure out how to upload the PDF right to this post so you can all have a copy. Can anyone tell me how to do that? (Sorry, Brian! I will get it here, I promise!) This is the first issue so jump in now and when it is a big time will have been with him from the start! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Also, Lindsay from My Family Meal Planner emailed me yesterday to let me know that she would be sending it's 4 the kids a $50 donation based on the number of books sold from my review. Thanks to those of you who purchased the book. If you haven't, please head over to Lindsay's site. It will no longer benefit it's 4 the kids but you will LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ On that note - I have come up with the Fundraiser that will take it's 4 the kids to the next step and you can help!

Simply email me (michellebrownlow (at) yahoo (dot) com) to register for your very own it's 4 the kids YARD SALE, de-clutter your house, set your date, send it's 4 the kids your profits. It's a win-win, you can clean house AND help cancer families at the same time. Since it's inception in April, it's 4 the kids has sent $478 to a family whose son was going through chemo and dad lost his job and therefore their insurance. The family was selling things (computers, electronics) right out of their home to pay their bills. it's 4 the kids sent $300 to a family in a similar situation whose electricity had been cut due to outstanding bills. Most recently we sent a HUGE package of art supplies to a little girl whose sister has just been put on hospice and is literally dying in the livingroom. This poor little girl needed something to escape to. She will be contributing her artwork to an upcoming line of cards I am developing for the site as well.

PLEASE consider registering and your donations could help where insurance or Make-A-Wish or Ronald McDonald House doesn't.


A friend emailed this to me - I can't even believe I am posting it for LITERALLY the WORLD to see but it was just TOO FRIPPIN' FUNNY to not....

Yep. That's me on my way to a PUNK THEME DANCE in (probably) 9th grade. Oh my!


I lasted ONE DAY on TOPMOMMA.COM but I got a button! I got an email this morning saying, "you have been booted!" Nice!


Here is my VIDEO OF THE WEEK! My little SNEAK! Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ OHM!ers! Stick with it! NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS SKINNY FEELS!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the near future, I will be starting a weekly (or so) Children's Book review so stay tuned! It should be a blast! OK...time to go eat myself out of house and home...except I need to be a good OHM!er get on with my day.

For those of you techie geeks [ok, that's me] Calorie King has a program you can download to your PDA for keeping track of your daily calories. It has quite an extensive database of foods and you can tap and enter it right in, handy dandy!

Yes, I am doing this along with y'all :)

I think I can have a garage sale benefiting 4thekids:)) just email and let me know what we have to do!

Shoot! I'm so far behind in my reader that I missed you on Top Momma. I think the thing is fixed, anyway. You gotta really hound people to keep you on it. It was fun to do though. You should try again. I think they keep your count from each time you are on so you don't restart at zero.
