Friday Fun Fact

Today's FFF is about me. Would you expect anything less from me? Don't answer that question.

So today I'm going to build a house. I'm building a house with my bare hands. I'm excited. I can't say I have ever built a house. My office is volunteering for Habitat for Humanity. Did you know:

Habitat began as an idea in the 1960s in Americus, Georgia. Since then, Habitat has built nearly 300,000 houses around the world. Yup it's true. I stole this information straight from their website.

Hopefully, I won't cut something off or nail a finger. I'll have a full report Monday.

Oooh, good time! Totally something I want to do one of these days.

I think I'm going to start making it a priority to do something "big" for someone else once a year. Like 2009, I really want to do the Susan G Komen 3-day. So maybe for 2010 I'll do HFH?

Renee said...

DH did HFH once, he had a good time. I did a thing called Christmas in April where we went and fixed up a house for an older woman...it was fun, we painted, we did minor construction...we got tired. LOL!

Scotty said...

Thats pretty awesome, and good idea TC (one big thing a year).

TC said...

Thanks Scotty! I'm sure I can count on you to help donate and make the 3-day a reality? :)

OK Chick said...

Renee- I did Christmas in April a few times. It was fun.

TC- Sounds like a great goal. I think you should do the 3-day for sure. Actually, I'd do it with you. Find one in the middle and we can meet, and Scotty can sponsor us!

So, Do you still have 10 fingers?

TC said...

Denver is kind of in the middle for us...

OK Chick said...

Denver is in the middle for us. I say Denver and it's in August...it will be nice outside.

TC said...

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!

(You ladies do realize I'm very serious about this, right?)

Renee said...

YUP! I'll clean up the place for you too.

TC said...

Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!!

OK Chick said...

Sounds good to me. I'm in!

Scotty said...

Wait, what happened to Sandy Eggo!?

OK Chick said...

I didn't know we were going to Sandy Eggo. I've never been there.

TC said...

Sorry Scotty: you were a bit late to the game and Renee spoke up to get us to Denver before you threw Sandy Eggo into the ring.

Scotty said...

WHA?!

OK Chick said...

TC, we're so cool that people are fighting over us. HA!

TC said...

I KNOW!!! haha

Besides Scotty, perhaps your geography fails a bit, but she said "in the middle." Sandy Eggo is most definitely NOT in the middle of Wisconsin and Oklahoma.

:)

Scotty said...

Hmmm... I could argue the weather would be better :)

TC said...

You could... but it won't do you any good :)

Petition for HFH in 2010 out your way. You aren't going to win 2009.

OK Chick said...

YEA Scotty, what TC said! :)

Scotty said...

Humph.

TC said...

I think we made Scotty a little pouty today :-D

OK Chick said...

Scotty don't cry...you can try for 2010.

TC said...

That has the potential to be a catchy song...
