What to do?

I am too far behind-- no Nelson interview posted yet, have yet to finish organizing the office, need to send out email regarding Atlanta Pride, emails regarding a poetry fundraiser...... the list could continue.

I'm off work because I woke up not feeling well, and if there is one thing I have learned quickly is to listen to my body. A day of rest will have me back at work tomorrow going full force. However, I plan to squeeze in a couple of tasks from my list (if I don't, I might go crazy).

I want to give a huge heartfelt thank you to Montgomery Maxton and Kate Evans. MM is using his blog in a creative way to help with fundraising for my AIDS Walk Team, Team Truvy. (Take a minute to check out his post!) Kate Evans was the first person to donate to Team Truvy. Again, thanks MM and Kate!


Mother's Day-- My mother visited on Saturday, and my gift to her was a meal. We had salad, lemon pepper chicken, rice, veggies, mac&cheese, and baked potatoes. I cook from time to time; however, it typically isn't a meal like this, and I have to admit-- cooking a "big" meal isn't an easy task. I need to buy my mother a big ass thank you card for all those meals she cooked and continues to cook for the family.

When my mother cooks she is always getting up from the table for one reason or another so another else has to; she says it is what mothers do, so I enjoyed that my mother actually sat and relaxed when I asked (and demanded) her too while I did all the work. Her taking it easy made me smile and feel good.

Lisa Allender here, Dustin,
What a great Mother's Day meal/celebration---your Mom is fortunate you appreciate her so early in adulthood--many of us did not fully realize theamazing Mom- work/sacrifices/etc., until we were much older!

I'm signing on for your Team Truvy, if you'll have me...
