Hope Y'all Are Sitting Down...


Last night...

I slept in a tent!

And NO it's not because I lost my house...

I did it on purpose.

Our Physical Therapy clinic had a team for Relay For Life to honor one of our favorite patients who was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Our Team Name...Quest For The Breast. That's our team up there...Kiddos went home. Adult Beverages were served.

We collected $300.00 over our goal! WhoooHooo!

Molly joined our team being "The Trooper" she is (Oh...and she secretly likes camping...cuz there is Miller Lite involved...I think).

Anyhow...She pitched our tent.

Now I've seen Molly pitch a fit or two in the years I've known her...But a tent! Holy Impressiveness!!!

A true Girl Scout you are Molly! You save my house from burning down and you build me a safe place to sleep...YOU ROCK!

So it started at 6pm and ended at 9am this morning. And the very LOUD music played ALL.NIGHT.LONG!

All in all we had fun. More importantly we raised money for a great cause.

But...

I'm seriously considering booking a room at The Ritz tonight just to get myself balanced again.

Glad your camping experience was better than mine. It was freezing and raining and all of us in the tent got soaked. It was my ONLY time of sleeping in a tent. But yours was for an awesome cause! And congrats on meeting the goal. I love that your team was made to honor one of your patients. That's awesome.

congrats on the wonderful thing you and molly were lucky to be a part of. Ritz and chiropractic services should be a prize for all the walkers.

You can't fool me. Just figure out how to post as "Molly" S&S can help you with that...Cuz I'm busy.

P.S. If you gave that henious green short guy my number... I'm gonna release The Lions!

I did relay for life when I was pg with Avery - very pregnant. It was such a wonderful experience. Although I got out of sleeping in a tent. They let me go home! ;) AWESOME!

Good for you!!!!!!! Sounds like such an awesome time but for a good cause too. I LOVE camping. And I am so laughing at this green pants guy thing.

Good idea on the Ritz for balancing... tents don't agree with me. Neither do nut huggers. Miller Lites and helping out a good cause, on the other hand, do! Great work to you and Molly!

Mindy said...

Stopped by to give you some SITS love. I'm not one to pitch a tent either, I'm a cub scout leader though so I should know how to, lol. Congrats on going higher than your goal. Sounds like you had fun.

WishTrish said...

Ahhahahahha! Love it! One funny lady, you are.

I am just dropping by from SITS to say, "hello." And, "Happy Monday!" And, "Tents for Rents." (because all good comments should include a rhyme, don'tchya think?

I hope you have recovered from your camping episode. Enjoy your fabulous day!

Shannie said...

LOL! Glad you had fun!!!! Yes, do go balance yourself out...

Camping and me sorta get along.

As long as running water and a clean toilet are nearby we all G. :)

Ahem, may I say staying at the Ritz to balance yourself....NOT a bad idea!
