I'm waiting for the Carpet Cleaner Peopleguy to come and work some mojo with our nasty carpets. Once we get him set up, we'll head next door for some playtime. And then, tonight, my friend MamaJen and I are going to meet up with a friend of ours from high school who will be in town with her family for just one night! Actually, she's a friend of MamaJen's from elementary school or something--I only moved up there (Michigan) our Junior year of high school. It will be fun to see her, and hopefully, they'll get into town early enough that we'll all get to bring our kids--a grand total of 10, that would be!
If you haven't been following Celebrity Apprentice--and I haven't, what with The Importance of Buffy taking television precedence over all--you may not be aware that country music singer Trace Adkins got second place! And he was playing for the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, so we are all excited that he did so well and that he was successful in raising awareness of the seriousness of food allergies. His 6 year old daughter is allergic to peanuts, just like my Ryan. I've seen clips of the show where Mr. Adkins talks about life with food allergies, and it's kind of hard to watch, given my hormonal state these days. Suffice it to say that his family and mine are in the same position. So I'm happy he made it so far and was such a fine representative for the food allergy community.
There is another way for everyone to donate a little bit extra to FAAN--for two weeks only, you can buy one of Trace Adkins's songs off of iTunes. For only 99 cents, you get a song, and FAAN gets a donation. So if you're into country music at all, or interested in supporting FAAN, be sure to check this out! From the Celebrity Apprentice website:
Celebrity Apprentice Finalist, Trace Adkins, will be performing his hit single, "You're Gonna Miss This" live with his band during the finale. For two weeks only, you can download the charity single exclusively at iTunes.
All proceeds for the entire two weeks lifespan of the download will go to Trace's chosen charity, FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network). FAAN is the largest charity in the world dedicated to helping and advocating for the 12 million who suffer from food allergies.
And here is the link to the song. And spread the word!
