Another update. Man, I need better titles.

Hi friends,

Ok so here is a quick update on...various things...

'project redeem humanity' as I call it (because I was disgusted with humanity until WE came together and restored my faith and filled my heart, and my car) has 3 parts: project homeless, project mommy, and project family.
Project homeless, as previously reported, was FANTASTIC. and I have continued to collect clothes and coats which I will distribute in the next few weeks. If you have outer wear you can spare, please let me know this month. Its really cold here, but it will be shorts weather by the end of March so I have to move my arse. :) Anyway, let me know.

project mommy was a huge success and was delivered in its last phase this last weekend. The first phase was when I shipped the Christmas toys up to her in time for Xmas!! yay! It was nice to know that the kids would at least have something to open on Xmas day, and I believe their community made sure there was a bit more than that. cool!

On my way to San Jose to see fellow blogger Carol from middle-aged diva I stopped to meet my shoedazzle friend K and her sister, also K, and sister K is who we collected all the stuff for. my Honda Pilot was FULL of car seats, clothes, diapers, toys, a crib, and a trike!! I mean FULL. I'm SO glad the K sisters, their other sister O, and one of the hubby's had more than one vehicle!!! So we exchanged stuff, and took pictures of our fabulous shoedazzle shoes,

and hugged and I was on my way!! The K's were very sweet and it was so great to meet sister K, who was way pregnant with baby #6. She's adorable! She was very grateful to all of you!!

project family is still in the works. :) Stay tuned.

So now to me:

My visit with carol was awesome! I love the Bay Area!!! Northern California...they are my people!! We spend the day Saturday in San Francisco. I ate this orgasmic organic pizza

and then we visited the wharf.

It was a very warm day for SF and it was clear and gorgeous for the whole visit.

Sunday we had lunch in Capitola...and it was HOT. Yes hot, on January 1!! I got a sunburn while eating. We were sweating. It was weird. and gorgeous!!! wow. so gorgeous.

Monday I visited with some friends up there, did some shopping, piddled around, and came home. Thanks Carol, it was truly so wonderful to meet you, hang out, and relaaaaaaax. xoxo!! wow. I was so relaxed. and then...

And then Tuesday I started my new job!! But this time, ladies and gentlemen, I quit one job to start another job. Yes, a new job by CHOICE! what? yes. I know. crazy huh?

I'm a busy busy bee. (understatement) Its been a whirlwind so far, but I'm really pleased to be useful and challenged and appreciated!!

So I'm a pretty happy redhead. No whining. For now. :)

Thank you AGAIN to all of you who donated!!
