You must be doing something right when the spambots find you

I sit down to write tonight and I was all excited because it said there were 13 comments waiting for me.  I knew that most of them would be spam ( especially since my number one fan, CZ, already left a sweet comment on the last blog) but I thought at least one of them would be real.  Not a single one was. However, I got the standard messages about monetizing my blog, the one about how writing is hard work, the one about how this is exactly what they were looking for and 7 about going to Dubai.  I hate to break their heart but anywhere that requires a passport is no where near the top of my list right now of places to travel to.  It is nice to know though that the WWW knows I’m here.  Kind of like you how you feel your business is starting to make it when you get your first telemarketing call.

What I love most is when I actually talk to people, on IM or on the phone or in real life and they are all like, “I read your blog about…” and share how it made them feel with me.  It is really heart warming to know that I have so many people interested in how things are going and enjoying my “adventures”.

So I don’t know if I mentioned this before but when Harvey hit, I was able to help by going on Amazon and finding a wish list for a group called Undies for All ( I heard about it before I went to Amazon) and I was able to send brand new underwear to Texas.  This might seem like a small thing, but imagine if you were in a shelter or had just lost all the stuff in your house – what a luxury brand new underwear would be.  I don’t even know if they are still collecting underwear but I have a point.  There are still people whose lives are not back to normal.  My cousin in Florida literally just got their power back within the last day or so.  I know that a lot of people have their issues with the Red Cross or think that a small donation of $10 dollars can’t do anything.  I sent 4 pairs of XL ladies underwear for like $11.  I made a difference to 4 people by spending $11.  Think about it.  We are all so amazingly powerful and can affect the world with these small acts of kindness.  There are still people in need in the the hurricane areas, there are people in our own communities in need.  If you don’t think your $5 or $10 can help, think again.  Something as simple as showing some extra kindness to your lonely neighbor, the struggling mom at the grocery store, the woman who dared wear sweatpants to Target, can create a butterfly effect in the best of ways.

Enough talk from my save the world soapbox- I know what you all really want to know – what is going on with the chair?  I’m going to be really honest – that bitch is still laying on her side about 1 foot inside the patio door.  I wanted to put it in my bedroom but I’m scared now I won’t be able to get it through the door and then it will be a whole other fiasco so I think it might end up staying in the living room unless I lure someone over who is confident he can get it my bedroom.  I will reward such greatness with some kind of baked good  – just in case you would like to volunteer!

Tomorrow is a very exciting day.  I decided to get a new mattress pad for my bed before I put the new sheets on it and the new duvet.  So tomorrow, Thursday, the mailman will be bringing me my new mattress pad and shower curtain.  As soon as it gets here, I can put my bed together with all the new bedding and I am very excited.  I am also excited about my shower curtain.  It has a rainbow of fishes on it.  Once everything is in place, I’ll post some pictures.

I’m off to get some rest and try to finish the Thorn Birds before all the excitement tomorrow!

  1. I love your philanthropic philosophy. It truly is the little things. We had neighbors who did a couple of loads of laundry for us & another brought us a hot meal one night. I mean, we fared so much better than so many, but these little acts of kindness were not little to me at all and at the same time I realized that even though I am oftentimes the giver, it is truly a blessing to be a receiver at times.

    I say make that chair your “pondering” chair & leave it in your living room.
