What a Day. Really.

Oh my goodness. I need a beer. And I don't even drink beer. But....

Went to get "established" with a new GP this morning. I wanted in her club before I got sick. It's just so hard to get a quick appointment when you're sick and a new patient. Well, it's a good thing. She said she's seeing 10 -- yes, TEN! -- cases of swine flu a day. And I'm one of those crazy people who choose to spend time at an elementary school on a regular basis. I'm doomed.

Let's see.... What else?

Team Tiara has been contacted by a lift truck manufacturer / dealer that many of us hold near and dear about painting a forklift pink and auctioning it off to raise money for the CURE. You'd think this would be a relatively easy thing to do. Nope. After a bajillion phone calls to a lot of people I know and a lot of people I don't, I got the best advice possible. Paint it a color pink that's as close to it as you can get -- and you'll be close enough. As for adding the Komen logo? Don't even get me started.... If you're in the market for a pink forklift, hang in there with me a couple of weeks and I'll see what I can do to help you with that.

This really is a Cool Deal, and I can't wait to get the details out to you.

THEN.... We've also been contacted about auctioning off a Precious yellow lab puppy. Champion bloodlines. Registered. I should have details on that in the next couple of days. We'll have a set of criteria that you will have to meet before you can bid (house with yard, etc.), and the original owner will have to approve of who wins.

THEN..... Tanya Thome, ROCKSTAR Fundraiser, has acquired a guitar signed by All the guys in AC/DC. She's raffling that off for $20 a ticket. If you'd like in on that, you should definitely let me know.

FINALLY.... We've had to change one of our designs on the Tiara Wear. I know. Crazy stuff happens to me that just really doesn't happen to other people. It seems that one of the slogans we were going to use is copywrited or trademarked or something like that. So we've come up with something else that suits us much, much better and are doing that instead. I've updated that blog entry from last night if you want to check on that.

I do have to say, this is the first time I've ever been in that particular brand of hot water. And I'm glad that the woman who contacted me was really, really nice about it. Bless her heart. It couldn't have been easy to send me that email. But she was required to. I'm so glad it wasn't one of those "Big Mean Turd" emails. I think that today of all days, that would have put me over the top.

WHEW.

But Wait.

I know I said FINALLY..... But I have another one.....

FINALLY (For real).... All the stress and jumping through hoops and all that jazz trying to raise funds for breast cancer by bringing in companies instead of just friends and family has opened my eyes to a real need that's out there. Something I have a real heart for. Something I'm really good at. Would you please be in prayer that God will help guide me in what to do with this realization? I think there's really a way I could something with it. I just need to figure out what that is.

thanks.
