Yea, so far I’ve raised 100 bucks and since I’m getting it matched from my company, that makes 200 bucks. WHOO HOO I still have a bit to go before I reach my goal, but I think I’m off to a good start. All the funds are being raised for Habitat for Humanity, because they will need a lot of money to help in the rebuilding effort. I know that my goal of raising five hundred dollars may not put a dent in what is needed, but if we all pitch in, every little bit starts adding up. I would like to thank all of the authors who have donated books to help the cause. Some people say that there are no more hero’s but I think we can all be heroes in times like these. My heroes are those giving their time and people who are opening their homes to all the displaced families, people who are giving a few bucks even though they could use it themselves, the counselors, the organizers, and the people on boats looking for survivors. God bless them all.
In other news, I joined a gym. I have seen the face of evil and her name is Lisa, an aerobics instructor at the gym I joined. Yea, I need to get in shape to stop the excess jigglage. I took a kickboxing cardio class and every woman there was like 90 pounds. I felt like a big lug. By the end of the class, I nearly coughed up a lung. Now I’m doing water aerobics. As I was doing it I kept laughing as I thought how easy it was but when I stepped out of the pool, my legs felt like stones. My legs are still sore like a son of a bitch, but the burning question is, will I go back. Yes, I know, I’m a glutton for punishment, but I would rather feel the discomfort now than a heart attack or diabetes down the road. Know what I mean. Of course, I had a bag of M&Ms today, but that’s another story. *sigh*
