News and Tears

I’m off for a four day weekend, although the bad news is the allergies I *thought* I had was the start of some sort of head cold/infection. So, after a sleepless night of 103 degree fever, I am starting to feel better today after 2 rounds of antibiotics.

My blogging friend Cecily was on our local ABC news last night, talking about our new project for 23andMe, and HEY, my face was actually in the story. Check it out here (third story in the segment). Great job Cecily!

Lastly, I have to comment on something that just breaks my heart. A member of my extended blogging family, Heather Spohr, (a fellow writer for the Silicon Valley Moms Blogs) lost her daughter Madeline on Tuesday. Maddie was a former preemie, and had a smile that could light a thousand moons. My heart is heavy knowing she is gone… I did not even know her personally, but the thought of anyone grieving a child sends shivers down my spine. The Spohrs have asked that donations to the March of Dimes in Maddie’s name be made in lieu of sending flowers, …you can do that here. Also, a PayPal account has been established for the family’s expenses here.

Please remember Maddie and her family today.
