Still Down and Out in Vancouver

I’m feeling a little better after 12 hours of off-and-on sleeping last night. Kel was here with his parents, and Skye was most upset when he started talking very loudly, and unhappily, in my opinion, about 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning.

Normally I probably would’ve just gotten up and picked him up, at least after Leslie refused to, but I tried to stay away from him all weekend in fear that he would pick up the crud I have. Since I didn’t get up, Skye spent most of the rest of the night running over to the door and whining. Needless to say, I didn’t sleep well.

However, inspired by Shelley’s burst of energy despite the flu, I decided I at least had to make some attempt at making a post. About all I was up to today was some random browsing, mostly to sites who have recently linked to me, but also to those sites I visit regularly.

By Sand and Sea linked to a cause I had advanced before after Leslie called The 34 Million Friends Campaign to my attention

They’ve made progress toward their goal but still have a long way to go.

That site, in turn, led me to a site I found even more interesting. True Majority is an organization that
“sifts through all the stuff going on in Congress.” and sends you an email alert, and, in turn, allows you to send a fax to your congressperson in your name. Obviously it also asks for a donation, but I’ll wait and see what kind of alerts it sounds out before I contribute. If it is anything like Environmental Defense, without merely duplicating it, I’ll probably end up contributing as I did there.
