I’m turning 40 in 16 days. If I were turning 40 in 1 year and 16 days, I’d probably have a proper celebration with lots of pomp and circumstance and the chance for all my friends to bring black mylar balloons and give me morbid cards. Or a properly sober and mature marking of the occasion…at a paint ball facility.
But since I’m too busy with work and school right now (I’ll only be saying that for a few more months, yay!). I may have a do-over 40 celebration in the fall.
In the meantime, Jess and I were invited to be on a team for Reach the Beach the day after my birthday and we said yes. We loving riding bikes together and it seemed like a great way to spend the day together doing something fun. AND, it’s a fundraiser for the American Lung Association. We’re both HUGE fans of breathing. You probably are too.
In my school/work/trapped-under-cats cycle of busy, I somehow missed the fact that our fundraising donations are due THIS FRIDAY.
THAT’S TWO DAYS AWAY!
But you know what? That’s cool. I’m not worried about it. I don’t ask for things very often and you guys NEVER let me down. (Exhibit A).
Since I’m turning 40, I think $400 seems like a fitting goal. But since I’m in charge of fundraising for our team (that’s team K and J), do me a favor and split that between my page and Jess’s page OK? (You don’t think I have too many friends now do you honey? 🙂
THANK YOU in advance, on behalf of all the people who are helped daily, monthly, yearly by the American Lung Association.
To sum up:
DONATE HERE FOR ME: http://action.lungusa.org/goto/kronda
UPDATE: My page has reached goal already (I love you guys!) so head on over to Jess’s page if you would:

$400 by Friday. ($200 per page).
Have I mentioned how much you rock? You do. Thank you. Keep breathing.
