WTF friday

Not only has my week been full of fun and surprises but now its gone.
I have found that giving makes me happy. I have always thought of myself as a giver but I did something today that put me on cloud 9 all day and every time I think about it I smile. No not that you sick monkeys. Remember those 2 quilts I was doing for some people I work with. One was for a guy for his little girl for xmas I think she's 2? That was the bright fuzzy fabric. And one was for my boss's sister for her second little boy, coming end of this month the NFL Browns one. Well they were finished on my day off this Monday and delivered Tuesday. Smiles all around and even a couple Oh my god's. Then this postcard kick I have been on generated a couple orders for some other people I work with. Those were done this week too. So I had about 100.00 in my hot little hands. I took some time to think about what to do with this new found wealth. More crafty stuff, hell no I have way too much as it is. Gift for moi, nah there really isn't anything I want. Then as I was laying in bed the other night the dog at my feet and the cat on my chest it occurred to me. I chose to donate it to our local humane society. Awesome thing is that the co I work for, albiet a major pain in my ass, does have some really nice perks. One of which is a matching program for charities. Just so happened that the rep for the dept was at my building this morning. So I went down and they will be matching my donation at 100%. So all those little doggies and kitties that dont have families for the holidays will hopefully be a little warmer this holiday and hopefully I saved some furry lives. That is what the holidays are about. I swear I felt my heart grow three sizes when I dropped the envelope in the mail today. So I hope that in some way you all out there are able to give to those that are less fortunate this year. However you feel is best. There are alot of people and organizations out there now that can really use it. And it will make you feel like a hundred bucks, make that two hundred bucks.
