Fund Raiser

I went to a fund raiser today for a family friend. He's a Marine that served two tours of duty in Iraq without a scratch, then he gets home and gets hit by a car while playing football. That just plain sucks. He was hurt very badly and has huge medical bills and a lot of physical therapy to go through to get better.

What I did not know when I agreed to help out was that I was being set up to meet a guy. Apparently the friends had been talking me up to him for a little while. They made sure we worked together and he spent most of the day by my side. He seemed very sweet, buying me sodas, etc. Anyone have any suggestions as to what to do?

Went to the eye doctor yesterday to get me and the girl's eyes checked. I had been hoping that she would escape the family's bad eyes. No such luck, though I seemed to have caught it at the very beginning, hopefully it will help slow down her eyes getting worse. Found her some really cute frames. I'm wearing contacts today for the first time in about 6 years. I got some great glasses too, very sassy!

Today was 8th grade play day, kind of an 8th grade graduation without the cheesy ceremony. We rent out the Palm Beach section of Moody Gardens. The teachers get to go relax in the sun and ignore the students, the lifeguards supervise. It's awesome! On the way home, a coworker said something very interesting. She was talking about how she has a very addictive personality. She'll try something just once, and if it's really good she just can't give it up. One example she gave was this olive dip stuff for bagels that she ate for breakfast for 5 years. She said the only way she can give these things up is to use Lint, because her "addiction to God" is stronger than any other. I thought this was a very interesting way to phrase it.

About a week ago it was the girl's birthday, she was terribly excited because of her party and the fact that Spiderman 3 opened on her birthday. In honor of this she decided to have a Spiderman birthday party. None of the people from school that she invited showed up, this turned out to be a good thing since several unexpected people showed up.

We went to see Spiderman on opening day, she loved it, me not so much. It was entertaining, but I wanted more character development and less camp.

There is a picture of her birthday cake. I made it myself.
