I know I said that my blog was going to be moving to my own domain. Umm just kidding? Actually, Kelli, the tireless servant who will be creating my website, emailed me at 3:oo in the morning to let me know that the transfer was complete. Unfortunately, Blogger wasn't redirecting people to my domain, so Kelli transferred it back. Sooo, I believe at this point, you can access my blog at mom2my6pack.blogspot.com, or dawnmeehan.com, or mom2my6pack.com, or becauseisaidso.com. Take your pick. I will have a website of my own soon (and it will be way cooler than I am!), but for now, it's the same ole blog.
A reader of mine, Dana, needs some help with her research. If you fit her criteria and wouldn't mind participating by answering 15 questions, I'd be much obliged.
To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Dana Frerich and I am a graduate student in the School of Education at the University of Colorado Denver. I am studying for a degree in School Library and am currently working on a research project for my required research course. I am looking for subjects to complete a survey that will help answer the following research question:
How do parents feel about their decision regarding what age they enrolled their children in kindergarten?
Participation in this study will contribute to the understanding of the satisfaction of parents in their decision making to enroll their child in Kindergarten when they did. If you are the parent of a child who is 18-35 years of age, with a birthday that falls anywhere between June 1st and October 1st, and would be interested in completing a survey regarding the research question stated above, please reply to:
Once I receive a response from you, I will send the survey as an attachment to the e-mail address that you provide. The survey will have approximately 15 questions and I will collect completed surveys until March 31st, 2008.
Please forward this to any/all friends, family, colleagues, or acquaintances that fit the description and may be interested in participating.
OK, now I need to ask for some prayers/good thoughts/well wishes. First, Kelli, my web designer and friend is working around the clock (thus the 3:00AM email) and has had "everything that could go wrong" go wrong. She's lost several employees and is struggling to take care of everyone. If you know Kelli, you know how dedicated she is to her clients. And Kelli, if you read this, switch from tea to coffee. It has more caffeine! ;)
Secondly, some of you may read Kendra's (Grandmother Goddess of the Garden) blog Barely Controlled Chaos. This woman was touched by Mimi's and Julian's story. She felt that Mimi, Michelle from My Semblance of Sanity, and I should meet in person and she made that a reality. She was able to get all three of us tickets to Oprah's show! Mimi, Michelle, and I have been busy making our plans to meet up in Chicago for the show. And then today I got an email from Kendra's daughter. It said that she was in the hospital and had just had emergency brain surgery to remove a tumor earlier this week. She was diagnosed with mestastatic lung cancer. :*( This was a huge shock to her. Anyway, please keep Kendra in your thoughts/prayers.
I can't end on that sad note, so I'm leaving you with a link to Jenny's blog Three Kid Circus. In this particular post, Jenny writes about buying this cute shirt at the store, only to discover it was a maternity shirt after she got it home. I found this post especially hilarious because I swear I bought a maternity shirt on purpose just yesterday! No, I'm not pregnant. Just fat. It's a cute shirt. It's flattering. It's fashionable. Really. Hey, if Joey can wear maternity pants to Thanksgiving dinner... Yes, I know there's something wrong with me.
OK, so he doesn't actually wear Phoebe's maternity pants in this video, but it's funny nonetheless!
