So what he wants me to do is a fundraiser of some sort. I told him I would look over all the info he brought me and do what I can.
Have any of you ever done a fundraiser of this sort? Have any idea's?
Oh and if you would like to donate go to http://www.transplantfund.org/ and in the yellow box type in the last name Simons and in the box type (it's a drop down) go to kidney and his page will pop up for a donation. If any of you donate thank you very much for helping my family and life it's self.
Well here in Alaska it is officially Fall! The leaves are starting to turn, the mornings are brisk, and I know before long the snow will start to fall. The fireweed has hit the tops but haven't started to blow wishies from them yet, but that is soon to come.
These pictures were taken 10 minutes ago from the sides of my driveway.

I know I haven't blogged much this month but I have tried many times and sat here with my new post open and thought to my self if you don't have anything good to say and all you want to do it bitch don't post anything at all. I think I'm finally coming out of my busy funk!
The 12th and 13th of the month we went to Anchorage school clothes shopping and spent the night in a hotel. The big city anymore give me the willies! We did enjoy our time and got all the school clothes and supplies my son needed. We had a nice dinner out and after dinner my son and I went to the pool and hot tub at the hotel. It was so much fun to play in the water with him and relax. The next morning we headed down to the restaurant and had made to order free breakfast. That was so yummy, omelet, a pancake, with coffee and juice. Good thing they didn't lock the door when they saw my teen coming for breakfast. He ate until full and if you have teen boys you know being full can take a lot of food and time...LOL
The 19th of this month was my 44th birthday, seems pretty weird that I'm 44, my mind and heart feel younger than that. Although sometimes my body feels older. It was an alright day, as usual Hubby didn't to a thing for me....Long story there. My Sister sent me these great fuzzy lined croc's and man let me tell you they are the best!!! My friend Alice and I went out to lunch, which was yummy!
Saturday the 22nd we went to the fair and enjoyed ourselves and had yummy fair food. I'm sure you have seen my post and pictures about that.
Yesterday was my baby's first day of high school, that's a hard one to swallow. But then again 2 of my granddaughters went to kindergarten yesterday also. Quite the mix I would say.
Now today it is back to college classes for me. I have 2 classes this term. English and American sign language. I'm looking forward to this term and I'm sure homework will keep me busy. Oh and the cool part about it is my daughter Rachel is taking the same classes with me. So we will be the Mother/Daughter team.
Okay that about sums it up for the Month of August for me, thanks for hanging in there and not exiting out of my blog thinking this chick is so boring.
Have a Blessed day!

In mid to late summer fireweed begins blooming in the middle of the stalk, with each successive flower blooming just above the one before it. As the last flowers are blooming at the top of the stalk, the earliest blooms seed and turn to cotton, as seen below. When the fireweed turns to cotton, Alaskans say there are about six weeks until winter begins.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
It is not me who has been in a funky mood for a couple weeks now. Seems as if every little thing bugs me!
It's so not like me to sit and read a good book for hours on end until the pages go blurry! It's Nicholas Sparks "Three Weeks With My Brother" . I really don't recommend this one....LOL
It's not me who has to travel 145 miles one way sometime this week week to get school supplies and school clothes for my son who goes back to school on the 24th. Our town only has one place to shop for stuff like that and I refuse to have him dressed like everyone else.
It really is not me who is still having back problems, the chiropractor is adjusting my back 3 times a week and it feels good but then pops back out right away. I really don't like the fact of getting older which reminds me.................
It is so not my birthday in 9 days..................UGH another year older!!!
