Helllooooo my long lost loves!
Yes, I'm talking to all those in bloggy land...I want to first and foremost apologize for being a bad blogger/blogger friend.
I promise to blog more, read/comment on y'alls blogs(because I miss reading them so so much), respond back to comments and emails.
I feel like I have missed so much from just popping in here and there in the blog world.
For starters...when did blogger change and why did it take me a good ten minutes to figure out just how to post this? WTH.
Second, I want to apologize to all my family, friends, doggies, my real housewives, mob wives, working out, running...all of the above for being a crazed person for the last four or five months....Relay For Life...was my life, but as of last Friday...I know have my life back...because I am done with RFL....well, until this fall...but still.
Let me just say that I love volunteering for the American Cancer Society's biggest fundraiser. I love my committee...well most of them, my team captains, my ACS staff, my fellow Relayer's from across the High Plains division...I loved being a Co-Chair....HOWEVER, I have never been more crazed, exhausted, over-whelmed, etc. etc. etc....in all my life.
To all my friends and family, I fear that when I plan my wedding someday...I may or not become a bridezilla. Just sayin'
If planning a wedding is anything like planning an entire Relay...than I apologize in advance.
With all this being said, I had the BEST time ever being a first time Co-Chair. All the stressing, planning, me being crazy was all worth it in the end. If I do say so myself...the event was a success...in fact, not to toot my own horn or anything...but word on the street was this was the best RELAY they have ever been too.
I know that what I did, was just a small part in the fight against cancer...but to me, it means more. I started volunteering for Relay in memory of my best friend...now I continue to Relay for every single survivor, caregiver, and volunteer I come in contact with. It's in my heart, it's in my soul to do what I do with Relay.
I will say that I had a blast dressed like an 80's rock star.
Anytime I can wear a pink tutu and get away with it...I am all about it!
Relay taught me a few things this year....
To accept that people will let you down....sad, but true.
Some people will surprise you and go above and beyond.
I enjoy wearing a tutu...actually I kinda already knew that.
I can hula hoop through the entire Steve Miller song, "Joker"
Dance party at 3:00am is the only way to stay awake....
that and three cups of coffee.
that I can't wait to do this all over again...craziness and all.
