Relay for Life - In Memory of Mom

As of 11:25pm tonight, I have finally managed to send out my annual "please support me" email for Relay. Relay is in 9 days, nothing like waiting until the very last second. *sigh* I did manage to post it on FB on Sunday.

Getting through Mom's birthday was harder than usual this year. Mother's Day is this Sunday and the barrage of ads for the holiday have really gotten me down. Plus, Auntie Asako (aka Auntie Oscar) passed away early last Tuesday morning (still haven't dealt with that yet) and the news that we will soon be losing Allen (bff Julie's husband) to cancer is just hard to handle. This week has been just really hard and I just want to crawl into my cave.

Today was our Cinco de Mayo Taco Salad Bar fundraiser. I was running around for almost 4 hours, so I am fried. We raised over $500! Last month's Ice Cream Social raised over $400 and we're doing a Bake Sale next week. I'll be making peanut butter blossoms and something else and Foxy has graciously "volunteered" to bake some cookies too.

The teens from TAB will not be spending the night again this year. There was a bit of a disconnect - the two guys who were supervising TAB transferred over to the Senior Center and the new guy just started in January. No time to build a relationship with da Teens. Maybe next year. I've got the night shift pretty much covered between me, Karen, Kyle and Sandy.
