Get it Down: 31 for 21

Hi folks…I am joining the throngs of people trying to bring more awareness to Down Syndrome (a.k.a. Trisomy-21). In doing so, I will do my absolute best to blog something every day this month. Even though I didn’t start on the 1st, I did blog twice on the 2nd, so I think that counts for something. 🙂

So if you’re interested in bringing more awareness, please check out Tricia’s page where she chronicles her life as a mother to a beautiful little girl with Down Syndrome, and grab the button:

Get It Down; 31 for 21



I admit, I don’t know a whole lot about Down Syndrome, other than what I learned in Genetics in college. I know it is Trisomy-21, that there are potential problems with the baby’s heart as he/she grows up, varying degrees of other developmental delays, and usually a shortened life here on earth. Tricia has a lot more info, so be sure and check out her site. Meanwhile, I will try to blog every day for Georgia, and all the other gorgeous little babies out there with T-21.

(Okay, and I obviously don’t know much about formatting, yet, since my button LOOKS like it’s in the center when I enter it on my end of things, but on the page is looks all smooshed-in with the rest of the text, no matter how many breaks I build into the code = dumb blonde too proud to bother blogging/formatting Genius Husband; also can’t figure out how to have live button in my text field, but that’s okay since the real button is ovah dare—–> and maybe up a bit if you are reading this any other day than 10/4/07).

This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.

Image placement; just a guess (never tested), put an “enter” above and below the image. I like the text wrapped around the image for what it’s worth.

Image Link; click on the image in your editor. click on the link icon and type the URL.

[…] this post is probably going to be a cruddy one…one created out of obligation to do my 31 for 21…but I’m going to give it the old college try.  It’s not my fault that I […]
