*MUAH*
« on: April 19, 2008, 07:35:39 am »
Hey ya'll!
I just wanted to drop in and let you know what's going on these days. I will put this on myspace too, but I wanted to get something to you guys first.
For starters...thank you, thank you, thank you for the beautiful flowers!!! It has been absolutely amazing to have a "backup presence" in every single city of this ice cream tour. I took very silly pics with the flowers, but somewhere in my move, I lost the cord to hook my camera to my computer. I'll find it because I think you guys will enjoy them. I can't wait to see some of you in Philly! It might be a weird one, though, because the hugest primary is happening Tuesday in Philly. Fun times. Maybe I could stand outside of the polls and offer them ice cream...
Anyway, this week also ends in Malaria Awareness Day! Friday, April 25th is the day and I'm so excited to get the chance to get more word out there about malaria eradication. I also wanted to share with you guys that I get to do some really awesome things to bring awareness. Thursday, I am leaving Philly to go to Washington, DC to do an event with the First Lady and then I am heading to Connecticut to do an event on Friday with the President. I am so excited to be getting these huge opportunities to bring awareness! Don't worry runners, I am making sure I can get back in time to cheer you on!!! Hopefully I can get back early enough Friday night to see you guys before you're all sweaty...  :-)
So, the prayer request for the day week would be rest!!! Kelley and I are headed to Scottsdale, AZ Saturday for an AT&T event and then on to Philly and so on....
Fun, sleepy times!
I love you guys and I am so grateful yet again because I can't do this without you.
Good night or morning or whatever it is.....

Awww, your posts always make me smile!!  Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to give us an update!!

I can't wait for Wednesday ... I've been looking forward to it ever since they announced the tour cities/dates.  I'm really excited to meet some of the other backups, and of course to get to talk with you again!! I STILL can't quite believe you're going to be five minutes from my house!!  Ohhh and everyone around is most definitely caught up in all the primary excitement.  These last few weeks have been absolutely fascinating!!  It's funny -- I enter the ice cream party contest every day, and my mom went "Suppose you're lucky enough to win and they call while you're in the voting booth on Tuesday?"  Well -- as beyond excited as I am by this primary (it's really the first time I've ever felt so strongly about a candidate) -- voting will just have to wait, because that phone call would be more important.  I know it's next to impossible to win, but hey, it can't hurt to dream big!! Smiley  ANYWAY ... I definitely think you should stand outside of the polls and offer ice cream ... I can give you the names of quite a few polling places around here Wink

I am so, so, so happy for you that you have such wonderful  and exciting things coming up!!  Your dedication and devotion to malaria awareness is simply beyond compare and is more inspirational than you will ever know -- you inspire us all to want to do everything we can!! Congraulations on both of your exciting upcoming experiences -- both the event with the First Lady and the one with the President!  I'm absolutely thrilled for you that you have these wonderful opportunities ... and it really is so inspiring how you always give of yourself to help others.  You've already done so much to change the world.  Aww, and you're so sweet to make sure you're back in time for all the runners ... it's so special to them that you'll be there!!

Try to take SOME time to rest these few days, ok?  You deserve it!!

I can't wait to see you on Wednesday ... whoohooooooooooooooo!!  Can you tell I'm just a tad excited?

P.S.  My mom said to ask if you wanna come over for dinner, since you'll be so close by Wink
