"That which doesn't kill you, comes really, really close to killing you."
Since being involved with the first Chase Community Giving Challenge through Facebook, making the top 100 charities, winning $25,000, learning that Johns Hopkins is going into clinical trials for an extremely promising treatment, preparing for the second leg of the challange, getting people to vote during the challenge (going on now and through January 22nd), and oh yes - Christmas and New Years - I am completely fried. No let me rephrase that: I am completely FRIED. I am so tired I can barely lift my fingers to type this - and I'm doing it in bed. I still have no job. My husband is being pissy (in fairness, it is his turn), I feel like an old lady and I hear we're in for one hellava storm this week. I want my mommy.
Okay enough of the pity party. But that is why I haven't posted anything in so long.
I am not kidding though. I have been so consumed with this for the past several weeks that I can't think about anything else. I have Facebooked, my Facebook friends to death - to the point where I believe that 90% of them have hit the "hide" button to all my comments. WHY ELSE WOULD THEY NOT BE VOTING?!?!? I am a person possessed!
And yet, life goes on. It is raining outside in Southern California - I believe it may be similar to what Noah saw. The streets are flooding and the trees are bending and for all I know we're all going to float away BEFORE EVERYONE VOTES!!!
Oh - and because everything I do for the rest of this week focuses on this one purpose -
It takes two damned seconds. What else do have you got to do?
