This past month has been a blur. Three weeks of fundraising at work were followed by an Extreme Home Makeover right across the street from us! It was a crazy week with streets blocked off, porta-potties along the curb, hundreds of volunteers working 24/7 and more activity than I'd seen since the Flood of 2009. Despite the noise, floodlights and dust, it was fun to be a part of it, and it was all for a wonderful family that has done much for disabled children in our community. The show is supposed to air in late November or early December.
