Is it Worth It?

Because I really worked it this weekend.

Here's a riddle for you. What do you get when you combine-

Three friends spending

Three hours baking

Two batches of brownies

One batch of sugar cookies

One batch of peanut butter kiss cookies

One batch of chocolate chip cookies

One batch of chocolate covered peanut butter bars

A couple of baskets, one poster, a batch of pink ribbons and

Four hours spent standing outside in the early morning cold outside of a Wal-mart?

The answer: $54 and some change.

Yes, my friends, after all that we raised $54 for the Avon Walk this weekend. It is true. We are, as a nation, giving less this year than in years past. Last year when it rained and I froze my tookas off in the freezing cold I raised $100. The year before that? $200 in the winds of January complete with snow. I'm trying not be depressed about it. All that work and we had to split the $54 three ways.

We thank the woman who clearly taught her teens this lesson at a young age as they all clamored to donate their crumpled bills before heading into Wally World. You ma'am have done your job well, your teens were pleasantly surprised and grateful that they received cookies for their donation.

Donations are still being accepted here.
