My kid.... and my money go to Texas Children's

Every single time I go to the grocery store, I am asked to donate a dollar for this or for that. Some days, I feel giving and I donate that dollar. Other days, it pisses me off that they are always asking me for money. Just let me go to the damn store without hounding me. Geez, I already quit church because they wouldn't leave me alone about giving extra money for their stupid sports facility when I couldn't even pay my electric bill at the time. Sometimes, I just want to get my groceries, and be done with it.

All I needed today was milk and dish soap. That's it. And it was hot. So hot that my car never cooled off the whole drive there and back. So perhaps, I wasn't in the best mood when the sweet checker girl asked me,

"Would you like to donate a dollar to Texas Children's?"

Probably that is why I snapped back,

"I think I have already donated enough of my damn money to the stupid place."

I'll blame the heat. And the fact that I am feeling bitter about all the problems Emmi is having lately.

I hear ya, I'm so sick of people asking for donations especially at the grocery store.

Maybe you could ask her if all future donations from their location can get earmarked for Emmi - I bet that would stop her from asking quickly!

Oh, I totally hear you. We currently have four different bills we are paying on there. @@ I can look into a custom bumper sticker for you with that on it if you want. :D
