If you see any of these people around town, please make sure to give them a hug/a free taco/a good goose. Tell them you love what they are doing and have done for the bald kids. What are they doing, exactly?

They are donating! The Ultimate Hike is this weekend and I'm completely freaking out because it's 28.3 miles in one day and I'm so excited. Really. Not nervous at all.


I haven't even burned any avocados this past week. Turns out, I sprained my ankle during that last big hike and the doc says to ice, elevate, medicate, wrap, rest. I'm all over the medicate part, but the rest is a lot easier said than done. My kids like to unwrap the Ace bandage whenever I'm not limping after them. But I've gotten a stronger brace and some more meds and I'm totally going to go pee in the woods, just like I promised.

It could be completely healed before I go. Miracles do happen. Like the fact that Eve didn't even get kicked out of dance class last week, but perhaps that's because she made me go sit in the van for an hour. Because my presence is not requested. Do not RSVP. Do not collect $200.

And no good deed goes unpunished. Luck would have it that as I turned on the car briefly to roll down the window, I somehow got distracted (Me, you say? Surely I jest!) and didn't realize the car was still on.

Really, I didn't realize it was on. I keep the radio off because I like to pretend I'm thinking and the air off because, well, I just rolled down the window. Without turning the car off.

I'm glad Eve was a "totally different kid" when I left. I'm glad she enjoyed herself and wants to go back. I'm also glad a friend came and jump started the van at the end of the hour.

I hope there will be people at the Ultimate Hike Saturday with jumper cables in case my battery dies on the trail.
