Labels: counting daisies
This is just a thank you note. I have had one of the worst days of my life so far ...... and you know what? I survived........let me tell you why. I was greeted by my neighbor this evening(Adria) with a flower..............okay so it was a dead radish that had gone to seed, but that is beside the point. The conversation, the ear and shoulder were nice and of course a smooch from Sal made my night.!!!!
I then started to consider all my blessings big and small. Right away all of you came to mind. All of you mean something special to me...........Mel for example.........I walked in the salon today for a pedicure and she had that zaney smile on her face. Has that girl ever frowned? I doubt it! Lana and I had a moment this morning on the phone and we agreed ANY woman to survive her year of cancer mahem AND do a freaking triathalon on top of that needs to be on Oprah and write a book.....!!! My point is, I am blessed beyond measure by my circle of friends. You have all taught me compassion, selflessness,courage and and peseverance. Crappy days will come and go but you all are here to stay! I know any one of you would drop anything to help me or any of us for that matter and for that I am soooo grateful. Life sucks sometimes.........but nothing would suck more than not having you all in my life. I love you so much and hope someday to repay all your kindness.

Lisa's fancy grease car is in the background.
I would so buy the blue lamp on the front table.
Calling all extraordinary housewives or ordinary housewives or just housewives or even houseboys... Marianne is having a garage sale to raise money to bring her new addition home to Burley. We are having the sale on Saturday, July 18 at 1121 E 17th St in Burley (Lana's old residence).
So we really need you to dejunk (hurry, you only have one day) and bring all of your "treasures" to the house. We will price them and put them out on Friday evening or you are more than welcome to drop them off on Saturday. Also, if you would like to patron the sale, we do have some really nice stuff. ALL of the money goes to save the Chinese. Well, not exactly but it does go to the orphanage where Marianne is getting her baby. Every little bit helps as a small amount of money goes a long way over in China.
We would also love some baked goods as most garage sale buyers are hungry and need some fuel and nourishment. So if you don't have any special junk to donate, make some junk food and bring it over. We usually make a killing on the treats.
We will be having a PARTY so don't miss out!
Leave a comment if you are willing to help. Again, every little bit helps.
Call me with any questions.
