Hi.June 9, 2004

Turns out I can’t just NOT write. I feel like I’ve abandoned ship and left the sailors on board gasping for financial help while I drink a hot toddy in the nearest pub. Well. You know what I mean.

I confessed to Christy that I hadn’t been able to help myself, and had cheated by looking at my personal marathon webpage, the one they maintain. But they’ve been so shortstaffed that fundraising updates are at least three days behind schedule, so *I* can’t even see what’s been raised. Darn it. That’s what I get for cheating. But I can call on Friday afternoon when I wake up and ask the office, and they’ll be able to look it up for me. You KNOW I’m tempted to do that now. But I won’t. I’ll wait. I’ll be good. Promise.

And you’ll be the first to know. I’ll add to the marathon webpage when the total changes in the future, and I’ll make some kind of progress bar on my site to show how close I’m getting to $3000. August 31st (the fundraising deadline), here I come! I can do it, I can do it.... When I DO hit that $3000 mark (‘cause I will, you know), we’re havin’ a party. As Becky would say, kir royales for everyone! BBQ at Rachael’s! Everybody knit!

And for those of you who’ve given, or who might, I thank you, from the bottom and top and sides and middle of my heart.

Oh, and Bethany's in Jersey!

I'm glad you're back. I was going into withdraw.

Hang in there. I'm dying to hear the total too.

me too. wonder if there's a 12-step for Rachael addiction. not that I have any intention or desire to quit.

You'll make the mark. It's for a very good cause, and I commend you for using your site to promote it!

[And I'm holding you to that barbeque! ;-)]

I think you'll be surprised at how much you've raised. After all, everyone loves you! The anticipation is killing me ...
Hope you're having fun with the birthday gal.

And here I was all impressed that you could take a couple of days away from writing! I think I could only do that if I away from the computer and couldn't log on. Then the withdrawals would be deep.

Yay,I can't wait to see either! You are a rockstar for raising the money and running. I know you'll hit your goal!

Mmmmm, BBQ! I'll bring dessert!
