As you know, this is how I often process things… :|
Sometimes I even forget to tell Russ what I am mulling over. So he was not hearing me in context, but neither was he surprised, when yesterday, after Pastor Scott’s sermon on giving, I turned to him and said, “Pastor Scott is right. I should blog with Dr. V in November, shouldn’t I?” It only took him three or four eye blinks to realize that several weeks’ worth of prelude to that conversation had all been in my head, before he said, “Yes, of course you should!”
On the way home from church he said, “Now what were you saying? And what did I miss?” So I backed up and started over, this time outloud…
Last year, before I had even heard of Dr. V, she was busy spending an entire day blogging hourly to raise money for her local SPCA.
In the time since, I have enjoyed hearing bits and pieces of that crazy blog-an-hour day. ”Woo!” I thought, “I remember when I was in junior high and could stay up all night! No way I could do it now.”
Then I read that she was going to do it again! ”How fun! I will read her daytime posts and the rest of them when it is all said and done,” I thought. Of course, a small squish of my brain was hoping it could talk me into doing the Blogathon too. Dr. V did say she would like some company…When I got home yesterday, I hurried to the computer to tell Dr. V I would blog with her, before I could remind myself what a crazy idea it is and how great I don’t do with sleep deprivation. Now that I am committed, I am so excited and I cannot wait!
Even better, it is for a GREAT cause. All of the money raised will go towards training a service dog for Bradyn, a four-year-old with epilepsy.
Feel free to donate before November 13, and be sure to check in with Dr. V and BZTAT (and their partnering Paint-a-thon) on November 13. You could even blog with us! Or, if you are sane, you could say…”Woo! I remember when I was in junior high and could stay up all night! No way I could do it now. I will read their daytime posts and the rest of them when it is all said and done.” Careful, though. I have been talking with Pastor Scott and a small squish of your brain about Blogathon 2011.
