can i ask you a favor?

say yes. will you click on this link and vote, please?

my little cousin's little girlie has rett syndrome, which is in the running to receive 250k from the pepsi refresh project.

they're currently in tenth place. i hope they win.

thank you for voting. i mean that. and if you don't? please keep it a secret from me, as i'd be awfully disappointed.

speaking of disappointed, yesterday was, like, my millionth anniversary of life with uncle sugar. and we both forgot.

his mom called me in the afternoon to announce that it was one of the most important, significant, and greatest days of her life: the day she became my mother-in-law, so many years ago.

i think she said important, significant, and greatest. i can't be sure. she's difficult to understand when she's sobbing.

i was naughty and did not remind pat until just before midnight. when he couldn't really do much about forgetting, you know? i do enjoy busting that boy's chops.

his response sort of went like this: kar...think about it. we spent the night at the girlies' swim meet. cheered for them until our throats hurt. esmé ate her weight in ring pops, the girlies were fast, and even though lill was disqualified from a few races for forgetting at her flip turns which stroke she'd been swimming, we laughed the whole night. and we were proud of what we've made together. i think we celebrated our anniversary perfectly.

well. when he puts it like that - and adds his devil of a smile - i don't even miss the shiny presents.

ok. catch you soon, friends. will you remember to vote once a day? and if it rains on my holiday, i may catch you even sooner. xoxo. photos found here first.

I voted for you as soon as I saw your message on Twitter. A friend of a friend had been in that contest, and her charity was rehabbing greyhounds with broken legs. Broke my heart that they didn't win...I voted 50 gazillion times, too! I'm rooting for you and your charity now:)

PS: That Uncle Sugar's a keeper.
