The Princess Guide: Going "Postal"


Dude... I have no idea whose fingerprint on the lens messed up this picture. But I do know that if you hear about a chick in the post office putting another customer in his place, that was me. And it's all true.  I just get so darn frustrated when people don't respect those who are doing them a service -- particularly if they're government employees and not paid very well.  Especially when it makes a scene and takes up MY time. Especially when I'm anxious to get home and see what my new floors are looking like.

Anyway, that's neither here nor there -- except that I may or may not have a raging case of PMS and today was NOT the day to throw a fit in the Post Office.

Anyways.... It's pleasantly cool here again today, and I'm sporting our Camo Sweatshirt from a couple of years ago.  This is also one of my "faves" -- and I think it's the only time I've ever been threatened with a "lawyer letter" during this quest.  Apparently our original version of the quote on the back didn't deviate enough from the original-original quote. BUT we fixed it and moved on.



Now.... I'm gonna get up on my soapbox for a minute.  (The word sopapilla flashed through my head as I was typing that -- yummy!)  Anyway, crazy things have been happening on this little blog and you need to know about it.

I usually run about 700 hits a month on my blog -- not a lot.  But I guess that means all four of you come around pretty often.  The crazy thing is that with the 38 days of Pinktober I'm going to hit about 4,000 hits in October.  I know.  NUTS. 

Those 4,000 hits would be a TOTAL waste if you just looked at my "Pink shirt of the day" and went on your way.  TOTAL waste.

I'm asking you to do more than enjoy the Pink. I'm asking you to help us make a difference.

I'm asking you to go to www.teamtiara.net and click on anything that will get you off the front page -- then make a donation via PayPal and our donation button.

Any amount helps.  Your donation will go to survivor support, to providing mammograms for women who lack health insurance, to just about any need we can find that needs to be filled.

I'm asking you to go to www.the3day.org/goto/teamtiararocks and make a donation under the name of any team member who has not reached the $2300 mark. Kayren Babcock, Amy Martin and Krista Liller are three of the ones I'd choose.  Not all of our team members are still planning to walk, but those three are -- and all have had extenuating circumstances this year that have made fundraising difficult.  All three could use your help. 

I'm asking you to make a difference. To think before you Pink.  To remember that Pink is just a reminder to take ACTION.  Action that will save lives.  Pinktober will only get us so far.

I just pulled my sweatshirt out of the closet this week to wash... by far my favorite piece of Team Tiara clothing!!! Thank you for your posts and for the dream that you are turning into reality when it comes to meeting needs in the community and serving others... love you friend!

My youngest Sarah actually pulled mine out of the closet today to wear to school. One of my favorites too. Best of luck to both of you on the walk!
