Here I am after being a shavee for a St. Baldrick‘s Foundation fundraiser for children with cancer on September 22, 2011.
A couple days ago I looked in the mirror. I desperately need a haircut. (I’ll be seeing @mafiahairdreser for that next week.) I remembered doing a fundraiser for St. Baldrick’s a couple years ago. It got me thinking. I am feeling the love for others. I want to do something more for such worthwhile organizations. I don’t plan to have my head shaved again for a while. I have a love for health issues and social services so probably it will be one of those. One I am considering is St. Jude. This organization gets to my heart so much! there are so many great organizations that I love! I am open to ideas if you know of any in Chicago area who need my help. I have a few websites that I will watch for good opportunities too.
This is me today.
Hugs and <3 to you,

I sit here drinking my coffee, waiting for it to energize me. It’s bitter but has grown on me over the years. Of course it is even better with cream and chocolate! I remember my first cup of coffee. I absolutely profoundly LOVED it! I hadn’t known about mochas and frappacinos(sp?) back then. It probably tasted so good simply because I was stealing it from someone I love. After that first cup of coffee it was many years before I drank it again. Maybe it was because of people’s shocked reactions and laughter, I don’t know. You see, I was only about four years old and stole that cup of coffee from my mom when she wasn’t looking. She was helping a customer at my dad’s business back then, Bob’s Campers. I don’t know if my mom remembers that day but I do. Thanks, Mom, for making coffee that day.
The makings of a marshamallow Peeps (R) coffee.
Make your favorite coffee, and gather
Peeps (R), marshmallow creme, sugar, food color, and if desired, marshmallow sprinkles.
In separate container, mix marshmallow creme with a drop of food dye.
Add to made coffee the colored marshmallow creme, sugar, marshmallow sprinkles, and top with a marshmallow
I actually tried this recipe this morning and it was pretty good! Thought I would share. Happy Easter and blessings to you!
Sorry, this photo is minus the topping awesomeness of the marshmallow Peeps. I ate them.
PS: If you are looking for a delicious and fantastic treat, you can shop for our beloved marshmallow Peeps at http://www.peepsandcompany.com/.

I am sooo tired! Finally heading home after what I think I would call a productive afternoon on my laptop. I spent most of my time on my various social media accounts, linking and updating. I can’t wait to arrive home and crawl in to bed. Tomorrow I will do much of the same. I am typing this on my phone while on the bus and trying to stay awake til I reach my bed. I still don’t have my phone service paid but I should be able to send this post using wifi near the bus stop by my home. Hopefully it will be turned on. Good night, my lovely tweeps, wherever you are. ♥
I’m sorry for the lack of posting. Due to some things in life and some people who read my blog, I discourage myself from posting about stuff sometimes. I don’t really want to post tonight but feel that I really must apologize for not being as active. I have moods, I am good, I am bad; and today, I just don’t know. Today I am one kind of effed up. It’s hard to explain at the moment. I’m really not sure what to say about things. There is some PTSD involvement. Something happened today that has me kind of scared about what could happen. I am afraid to say what about because of who it involves and how. I thank God for friends though and some advice I have received last week about one issue. I think there have been consequences to my involvement in something (worthy) and, well, I don’t know. I don’t understand why and how someone would treat me the way they did today. But I think I can guess. I am guessing that it could be because I tried to help someone, and someone else got scared. I can’t explain now.
The service on my phone is temporarily suspended because of lack of income, but also my charger frayed a couple days ago so I can’t really use it anyway. So because of this, I no longer have internet access. I will visit a local free public wifi spot on my laptop sometimes to try and catch up. If you send me an email, tweet, or any other communication, please don’t expect a quick reply. Also, the phone number listed on my page as (312) 725-8373 is a Google Voice number accessed through the internet, so it is available and you may text or leave a message on it and I will receive the message when I come online. It is NOT my actual cell number! Though when my cell service is in service again, I have a Google android phone and calls to this Google number will then go through to my cell again as well. I am surviving the phone issue for now, though I am missing a lot of tweet and status update opportunities. Not to mention check ins on Foursquare and other social media. Thanks, folks.
And to a certain relative of mine: Don’t worry about me!
