Well, Fashion for Life week is almost done. Today is the last day. I am a little melancholy actually. Something about this week always makes me miss my sister in law Kim who died from leukemia a few years ago. I think one of the saddest realizations of cancer is we can’t always save our loved ones, family, or friends. But it’s nice to know we can have a part in trying to help others, to save others. I am a little extra sad today because I set a rather lofty goal this year of six million and we are a little short. Just a little bit. It’s true I only bought one outfit from the event. I bought it this morning, but that is because as a blogger we could receive all the outfits for free to blog. But I do believe in standing behind what I am selling to my followers, this morning I went to the “Kiosk of Hope” and I dropped my Lindens in the bucket. A hundred US dollars worth actually. Because if there is even a 1 percent chance that my donation will save someone from the loneliness I feel at the loss of my best friend, I would gladly give all I have so someone else doesn’t have to feel like this. It’s not for any self-satisfaction, it’s just the right thing to do. If you find the time, please stop by. If you don’t have enough or don’t want any of the 100% donation outfits, please just drop a Linden in the bucket like I did. One Linden can make a difference, every single Linden counts, every single Linden is donated to Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. Please, just do it, show me, show everyone, sometimes even a lofty goal can come true. I’ll even make it simple and include the taxi for you, it means so much: Taxi:

Dhá giorraíonn an mbóthar

Dhá giorraíonn an mbóthar

Life’s funny. I’ve been so out of sorts all week and today is no exception. Workwise, its been a slammer. I hate it when my First Life gets in the way of my Second Life. Well to be honest, I am equal opportunity, I hate it when my Second Life gets in the way of my First Life too. Oh wait, and most of all I hate it when my work life gets in the way of my personal life! I think retirement is wasted on the elderly(sorry mom and dad). One of my mum’s most cherished memories of me is when my kindergarten teacher asked me to say what I wanted to be when I grew up to which I immediately replied, “I want to be retired.” Hey I always did like to dream big! But well, I didn’t marry it, or earn it, so here I am.

Dhá giorraíonn an mbóthar

I am having a casual weekend, and I hope you all are too. Don’t forget tomorrow is the Tribute to Galliano Show, I can’t believe Fashion For Life is already winding down, last I heard, over four million has been raised. I hope you will help get the number over six million this year. This is a 100% charity, 100% of the money earned goes directly to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life program. So come, give and receive the gorgeous outfits from the participating inworld designers. And if you can, some see me walk the runway tomorrow. I wish I could show you my “Lolly” gown from *SoliDea FoliEs* it is amazing! I know a lot of fashionista’s out there who are going to swarm the vendor for it! As it is, I’ve had to carry it around for two solid weeks now and not show anyone! Let me tell you, that’s kind of tough for a lil Cao to do. We like to show off all the pretties! So please come tomorrow and see me! 10AM SLT! Here’s the LM to get you there, I’m kinda nice like that. Taxi:

Take from? Well of course there is! It wouldn’t be Cao’s blog with out one. Back to the title, “Dhá giorraíonn an mbóthar”, when the travel gets rocky and the traveller grows weary always remember its okay to ask for help, because “two shortens the road.” Today, in honor of my week from ‘ell, I’ve decided to sneak out of the office a little early to kick start my weekend. It is St Patricks Day weekend after all. So I leave you with, ‘Ballaí don ghaoth, agus díon don bháisteach, agus deochanna in aice na tine, gáire chun cheer leat, agus iad siúd grá agat in aice leat, agus go léir gur féidir le do chroí mhian! (May you have: Walls for the wind, and a roof for the rain, and drinks beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, and those you love near you, and all that your heart may desire!)
