What A Week!!!

Some highlights:

Monday - Uneventful.
Tuesday - Visited new, perfect and precious Bebé Owen, went to my literacy volunteer project and found out that one of the best people I know is getting married in days!!! (Her Mom fixed her up with her best friend's son (the Mom's)! Lori knew this man in elementary school! She's not only leaving Cali and her cool job for a new life, but getting an insto-family, 3 kids!!!
whoa!!! This gives me renewed hope for finding my own soulmate!!!)
Wednesday - Watched Daniel pitch his baseball game (Annie's little bro), found out that a friend has terminal cancer (leukemia) and that another friend's Mom died.
Thursday - I can't remember Thursday. No wonder!
Friday - Found out a very close friend has breast cancer. Spent some time ranting at God. Went to the gym and did an hour on the machines. (Exercising demons!)
Saturday - Volunteered in SF for an organization called Girls on the Run where they help 8-13 year olds train to run a mile or 5K (3.5 mile) race. Cheered runners on during their race. "We need more COWBELL!!!" Such a cool concept, motivating young girls to exercise. I needed something like this as a kid! Next year I want to be a "running buddy" for one of the girls!
Sunday - Cycle class and art of course!!! (Got insulted by a "friend" while at Starbucks. I am D.O.N.E. Not hangin' with him anymore!) Talked to ohsoawesome Sista Linda (from Sistv) on the phone!

A veritable roller coaster of highs and lows, ohmygoodness!!! I don't really know how to feel right now.

I guess that is life.

Peekie of today's art...a trade with MadRetz!

Also, 2 cards posted at a skosh more...Gonna go "create" some dinner now!

Good week to y'all, Peeps!!!

That is a roller coaster. First of all, I'm sorry for the bad bits of news you got, but I am also proud of you for your volunteer stuff. I love the concept of encouraging young girls to exercise. And you are perfect for the job.
