Four Generations!

Photo taken by my Papa, Photo description: This photo was taken when my mom and I took my new baby daughter to meet her great-grandmother. Bonnie met Eva on 8/17/10. On September 3rd at a family party she said this was the first time she was meeting her great-granddaughter. It absolutely broke my heart.

 

For those of you that really know me, you know that despite my sometimes abrasive and narcissistic behavior there IS a good person inside me ….deep under the curse words and the imagined ass beatings (see former blog post “Were You Raised in a Barn, Eugene Levy”)  

… Unfortunately, stupid people ruin it for me.  Many people don’t see the good trying to shine through … or the sensitive and loving person that I truly am.   

The truth of the matter is that I have no tolerance for people who lack common sense and manners.  And let’s add social skills … and hypocrites.  

There.  I said it.  I’m sorry.  I’m horrible.  Call the Cops….  

OK, that doesn’t really help with convincing you all about my loving personality now, does it?  That said, back to my original statement.  Those of you who really know me know that one positive quality I do have is that I’m very giving.  I love the people who say, “If only I was rich I would donate…” Blah blah blah.  

It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor.  In my opinion it is important to give to those less fortunate.  So, if you’re living in a cardboard box, share the newspaper you found in the trash with your cardboard box neighbor.  If you’re like me, surviving but not loaded, donate what you can or simply GET INVOLVED.  

And one of my other positive qualities is that I practice what I preach.  I don’t b*tch about things and not follow through with them.  That said, if you read my previous blog post “Keep It Simple Stupid” you will remember that one of the “rules” of drive-thru etiquette is that you don’t go through the drive-thru when you have a coupon.  Do you recall this?  

OK, well, I am the queen of coupons at Dunkin Donuts.  I used to go through the drive-thru all the time when I had a coupon.  Why?  Pure laziness.  Then, I wrote my blog on drive-thru etiquette, and you know what?  Now I don’t go through the drive-thru when I have a coupon.  I even park and go inside when my daughter is with me, and I have to take her out of her car seat  – OR – I suck it up and pay the extra 50 cents for my iced coffee.  

So, back to following through.  GET INVOLVED.  I just wanted to let you all know in a some-what sarcastic manner that Eva and I will be strutting our sweet sh*t at Busse Woods on Saturday October 9th for the 2010 Schaumburg Memory Walk.  We will be “On the Move” to end Alzheimer’s.    

We would love to have you on our team – Bonnie’s Braves.  Click HERE to join.  

If you are able to give we would love a donation from you – whether it’s $5 or $500 every little bit helps!  And if you are not able to give, please say a prayer for my grandma, Bonnie, who is so very BRAVE, in her fight against Alzheimer’s Disease.  Please check out our donation page to learn more about why Alzheimer’s is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts.
