Procrastination

All fixed. Thanks so much for all the emails-I really don't know how I missed it, but things happen I guess.

So I have been thinking a lot about procrastination lately. I admit it, my name is Marie Taylor and I am a procrastinator. Sometimes I have a reason. Sometimes my reason really stinks.

For those of you who are not crazy insane scrapbookers who lurk on blogs of people whom you have never met, or met once and know more about than you do your next door neighbor, Ali Edwards is a mother of a child with autism.

In conjunction with sixdegrees.org (a Kevin Bacon run charity) Ali is raising money in hopes that on March 31 she will have the top "badge" and will have Kevin Bacon donate an additional $10,000 to Autism Speaks. I have been tracking the progress, was excited to see that Mr. Bacon mentioned "an Oregon woman who has raised $15,000" on the Ellen Degeneres Show, and so excited to see that her badge actually is in first place right now.

But I haven't donated. Why? My worst procrastination reason ever. Fear. They don't know what causes Autism. They don't have a cure. It is becoming a more and more serious problem and we don't really know much about it. And so I just don't want to think about it. I don't want to think that it could affect me. I could know someone-actually I do know someone, I could be someone with a child with Autism. It could happen. So I am donating. Now. I urge you to do the same. Just click the badge

Understand your fears completely!

Kind of along the lines to that I wouldn't let anyone buy me any baby things until after the "big ultrasound".

I did donate though :0)
