If you're a Mormon mom, then you've undoubtedly heard about the tragedy that has struck our beloved Stephanie Neilson from the NieNie Dialogues. For those of you who aren't familiar with Nie, and her super-classy-wonder-woman-ways, I'm very sad to report that she was in a terrible plane crash with her husband who she lovingly refers to as "Mr. Nielson."
They are both in medically induced comas due to the fact that they are badly burned over most of their bodies. While they are very lucky to be alive, the upcoming months (and years) of recovery are expected to be grueling--to say the least.
If you're not familiar with her blog, I'd encourage you to check it out. I'm sure you'll be blown away by her outlook on life, her gorgeous family of six, and then pee yourself laughing when you take a moment to compare her domestic abilities to my own.
If you're interested in following her recovery, you can visit her sister's blog, C Jane Enjoy It, here.
And if you want to help Stephanie's family directly, you can do so by purchasing a book that I'll be featured in. And come now--how much freaking fun is that?
A dozen-or-so Mormon mommy bloggers (the funny-frazzled-why-in-the-hell-did-I-have-so-many-kids ones, not the lame-o-my-life-is-perfect ones) have teamed up to compile a self-published book of snippets that will probably make you shart in your pants. Well, at least my entry will.
Hopefully they won't edit out all of my inappropriateness for the sake of our religious standards, because HELLO, LADIES! IT MOST CERTAINLY ISN'T AGAINST OUR RELIGION TO TALK ABOUT FARTS IN DETAIL!
100% of the proceeds from the book will be donated to The Nie Recovery Fund, and it should be ready for purchase in a matter of weeks.
I'll be sure to keep you posted.
