Mission Monkey Minute – how you can help me help Monkey!

So, I apologize to all of my fabulous readers and commenters. I initially had to hide the comments from my last post. Then I had to delete it all together. I’d rather not get into the specifics. I’m so over it! Anyway, let’s move on, shall we?!

Actually, in reference to the last/deleted post, I am a little grateful for a difficult situation I’ve been dealing with for the last few days. If it hadn’t occurred, I might never have had the light-bulb moment about how I can help Monkey (if you don’t know the story by now, click on her button to the right)! I’m not crafty. I don’t have my own business. But, I do blog! I’m not the biggest blog on the block … one of the smallest, in fact. But I know y’all read often. You comment or email daily, and I appreciate it!

So, here’s how I’m helping Monkey. I will turn comments back on starting with this post. For every comment on blogger or email that y’all make between now and the end of May, I will donate $1 to Mission Monkey. For every new follower, I’ll also donate $1 up to $100 (limit will be reassessed next week depending on your generosity!). Unfortunately, I don’t have all the money in the world. If I did, I’d just pay cancer to go to hell.

So, bring it on! And, if you’re looking for ways that you can help, why not match my donation? What do you think? You don’t have to be a blogger. Yes, I’m talking to you, my family and friends ‘in-real-life’ … what do you say?

MONKEY MINUTE! Answer the questions below. Visit Ian at The Daily Dose of Reality to link up for Monkey Minute and to learn more about how you can help with Mission Monkey!

Have you ever peed in the shower/bath/pool?
Hmm, probably the pool or bath when I was a kid. But not that I can recall recently!

What is your biggest pet peeve? People who are oblivious to their surroundings. I like my personal space!

What's the story behind your blog title?After trying out about 100 different ones that were already taken, I landed on this one. But, it’s fitting … I’m a working mom, figuring it out as I go!

What is your definition of success? Meeting your goals in the most efficient and dignified way possible. I admit, I’m not always good at this, but I try!

If you were famous, what would you want to be famous for? Being mom to Baby, and whatever she happens to be famous for …
