When the intertubes change the world

I still can begin to describe how busy life has been lately. I've been struggling to keep the unread posts in Google Reader below 300. I haven't forgotten about any of you, if there are any of you left. I'm still here, just the minutes I get for blogging are precious and few.

I have been trying desperately to keep up on one thread though. Unfortunately it's been mostly through Twitter so I get only glimpses and gasps. It's important enough for me to try and check back at what I've missed and try to piece it back together.

The best that I can do is encourage you to go over to WeaselMomma's blog and read the story of 3 crazy women doing the amazing. MomoFali's daughter did something that ain't good. She left the freezer door open and thawed the families food. Thousands of dollars of frozen cow. They had stocked up. We aren't talking about a family losing their tasty frozen treats, they had stocked it with the meat they would need for the next year. An admirable goal that is now sadly lost.

The crazy ladies, Melisa, Surprised Mom, and WeaselMomma are planning an epic roadtrip to restock the freezer. So incredibly awesome. You wanna help? Shamelessly stolen from WeaselMomma's Blog:

Many of Momo's blogging friends have already donated, but the window for donations to Momo's Meat Wagon is still open through Saturday. We are working through paypal via sending donations (any amount is appreciated) to .
Do what you can, cheer, donate, spread the word. Mostly, just do.

Thanks for listening!

Thanks for the plug! :)

We are more than excited about this trip; I can't even tell you how thrilled we are to be doing this. The circumstances that initiated this trip suck pretty badly, but this is bound to be one memorably fun day for many of us! :)
