I bet you do!
I would like to first and foremost extend an invite to everyone in the Greater Chicago area to a charity event on monday night! Team run for HD is taking over Happy Village in Ukrainian Village. They are graciously donating the proceeds from every Amstel light sold, and we will be having a very intense ping pong competition (with prizes) And by intense, i mean i generally need to tape the paddle to my hand to avoid injuring people with my awfulness.
Its sure to be a good evening, so if your in the area, please stop by, and invite your friends!!
And on another note, i feel the need to vent. About my family (this is your chance to get out while you still can!!!!!!) I love my family, i really truly do. But sometimes, SOMETIMES, i want to lock them all up and waterboard them
**(disclaimer: I am not entirely sure what waterboarding even involves, so if it's really bad, i totally take it back.)
The problem is entirely me. I function at a pretty steady 110%. I have always been a mover and shaker, and solid type A personality. But, somehow, i am the only one...
When i embarked on this mission to really make Team Run for HD a huge an awesome entity, everyone was 100% behind me. I mean, my mom should care, right? She is going to have to watch her children die if we don't find a cure. And my brother should care - he is one of those children! But here we are, 25 days until the event, and every last person has backed out except my cousin Ammanda. Because she's the greatest. And now i look like an asshole. Because i promised all these people would run and fundraise, and volunteer, and now "everyone has to work" or "something is going on." Matt was kind enough to point out "What did i really expect?"
But you know what, this one time I expected them to follow through, and NOT make me look like an asshole. And i am filled with jealousy over any one who will have their family in the crowds for the Chicago Marathon, because all of mine think the hour long trip is just too long to watch something as stupid as running. And thats fine. And i stand by my promise that if any one of them ever actually does something, ANYTHING, i will be there in full support. But for the moment, i am going to be pissed off. And it's totally fine because none of them read my blog anyway.
Ok, whiney pants are off, big girl pants are on, and i am done.
