Don't Tell My Heart... - Mini Post

So the US Women's Olympic team was on Leno last night. I guess they have to raise some of their own funds to compete. You've probably heard about that Mo girl, Mohini something. She was selling raffle tickets, Pamela Anderson heard about it and bankrolled her. Well last night I learned about the fund raising efforts of Courtney McCool.

A radio station in McCool's hometown offered to help her. They decided to play "Achy Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus over and over until the needed amount was pledged by their listeners. I'm surprised they had to play it 48 times. I think by the third playing I would have pledged the kid's college funds.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
