Alzheimer's Memory Walk

My sister and I are participating in the local Alzheimer's Memory Walk on September 29. I decided to form my own team instead of joining someone else's because I have a few family members (my mom, two uncles and an aunt) who are suffering from Alzheimer's.

I have set a goal to get $500 in donations for the walk, but so far I have only managed to raise $90. That is a looong way from $500. My sister and I have a little friendly competition going on to see who can raise the most. The loser will have to clean the other's house. So far my sister is beating me by $10. If you would like to help me (and, of course, the Alzheimer's Association), you can make a donation here: Memory Walk. If you are not comfortable donating online, there is a link to a form that you can print and mail in. Any donation big or small would be greatly appreciated.

I also have a goal to have a total of 5 team members but so far I only have 2. If you are near Sandusky, and would like to walk to benefit a great cause, please consider joining my team Friends Together Against Alzheimer's.

I'm Back!

Boy, I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted. Now that summer is over and the girls are back in school, hopefully, I will be able to post on a regular basis. I didn't get much stamping done this summer but I did scan the few cards that I did manage to do. I will get those posted when I have time.

We didn't take a big family vacation this year but we did go to the hot air balloon festival in Jackson, MI, in July. My DH took some great pictures and when I can the disk that he put them on, I will post some of the pictures. I'll post more about the festival when I post the pictures.

We also took a trip to the Cleveland Zoo. It had to be the hottest, most humid day in July that we went--it was at least 90 F. Fortunately, we remembered to take a cooler filled with bottles of water so that we didn't get dehydrated. We skipped going into the Rainforest because we were too hot and tired after going around the rest of the zoo. DH also took some great pictures at the zoo that I will have to post (when I find them).

It's great to have the time to blog again. I hope I didn't lose too many readers during my down time. More to come shortly.
