The first bit of news tonight is that Jan has a healthy heart. She is relieved and hopefully can get some restful sleep tonight. Peighton was also her old happy-go-lucky self today. It was good to see her playing hard and smiling all day. Thanks for the prayers...it looks as though they worked!
Now for some business. If you are like me, you tend to procrastinate quite often. Unfortunately a deadline is drawing near. Tomorrow, March 23rd is the day we would like to have all of the Crawl for Cancer entries completed. I'm planning on dropping them in the mail first thing Monday morning. Rachael Althaus and I sat down tonight and compiled the entries thus far and we are at least 10 teams strong. However, there are people missing from our list that I know are wanting to go. No matter if you are a individual, group of 4, or a full team of 10, sign up. Please click here to look at my post from several weeks ago for details. There is a Paypal link on the right side of this blog that you can pay for the entries. If you have any questions or would like to participate but can't get a check to us in time, e-mail Rachael at email@example.com. The Courtyard Marriott in Blue Springs has graciously offered up rooms to anyone interested for $69.00 per night if you mention Jennifer Ireland. We also have reserved transportation for around 80 people that will take us to Westport and back from Blue Springs. Tomorrow I will be speaking with a member of the Crawl for Cancer committee regarding the plan for our "special" t-shirts. I'm getting excited for what will be a blast!
Today I was part of a great meeting regarding the Kansas City premiere of the movie The Wind That Shakes the Barley. This first class, red carpet event will be Thursday May 10th and will directly benefit the Jennifer Ireland Foundation. The preliminary details are so exciting that I'll have to save them for another post in the coming days. In the meantime, Google the movie title and check out the great reviews it is getting from all over the world.
