I need your help. When my mother was 17 her brother was diagnosed with a blood cancer, and a little over a year later he died, John was only 13 when he lost his battle with cancer. As you can imagine this changed everything in my family. So, many years later my mom decides she wants to walk a 26.2 mile marathon she is doing this for many including the brother she lost. She has to raise at least $2,500 and has sent e-mails and asked people to help her. I am asking YOU to help! Donate if you can, if you can't send an e-mail to your friends asking them to help, or put her in your blog. I know I am asking a lot but the fundraising is going slow and I just want to do this for my mother. I will owe you!!! Here is her web site go and find out more about what she is going to do. THANK YOU for your help!!!!!! I will keep you all updated on her progress.

Okay so I opened up my iGoogle today and in my daily "How To" box there is a link "How to Communicate with Body Language". I guess I never really thought about what my body language says to people. If I really think about it in many situations I may come off as stuck up or high strung. Guess that is something to think about. I will be watching everyone's body language this week to see what happens.
So my family vacation is over and I miss it. I am sitting here wishing I was on the beach. The pictures went very well. The only problem we ran into was high tide on the beach where we were taking the pictures. We all got a little wet but we were on the beach so what did we expect. My son was a different story. He fell in the water, so he was not just a little wet. He was completely wet and covered in sand. Thank goodness all of his pictures were done.
I am looking forward to a nice quiet weekend. It was a hard week at work, but I was gone for a week so I expected as much. I am looking for a good book to read and hoping for some recommendations.

Ok... so last night my mother gave me my birthday present (FYI my birthday is in June). She took me to see Jersey Boys. OMG....I LOVED it. Everyone that I know that has seen it RAVES about it. And they are RIGHT! I know, I know...I am using to many capital words, but I don't know how else to explain how good this show was. My mother and I went together and we sang and laughed the whole way home. Then first thing this morning I downloaded the soundtrack from iTunes. I am pretty sure that the people in my office are completely sick of hearing it. It is on its 3rd time playing. So if you haven't seen in and you can. GO GO GO.....it will be completely worth it.
