Toys for Tots Year 3: Update

I will have the Toys for Tots post with pictures, final total, etc up (HOPEFULLY) on Thursday or Friday. I was going to do it last night but I spent all day busy and doing stuff. I was going for about 13 hours yesterday then I got home and was having issues transferring the pictures to my netbook. I was feeling too tired/stressed/drained to figure it out and just ended up frustrated and decided to just leave it alone for the night. Today will probably be busy but I plan on watching hockey and being lazy in the evening time. So, I should be able to work on it and figure out what the hell the issue is with the pictures not transferring. And if I can't, I'm sure the boyfriend will figure it out for me since he's awesome at things like that.

I do have one I got with a camera phone during one of the two shopping trips I did for the fundraiser....

Sorry it's kind of small. That was near the end of one of my shopping trips. I tend to break it down into multiple trips so I can take advantage of different deals and also so I'm not in line for an hour waiting on several hundred dollars of toys to be rang up. The boyfriend was amazing help this year and helped me on both trips and did the toy drop off at the Toys for Tots warehouse with me this year. I do have better pictures and plenty of them. Once I can get them onto my damp computer. Anyway, enough whining and bitching about that. :) I wonder how many people notice me randomly taking picture of the shopping cart as I fill it up with toys and wonder what I'm doing. In the three years I've done this fundraiser, I either toy shop later at night or early in the morning. Though, I've caught people staring and then looking away quickly but no one has ever asked me why I'm taking pictures of the cart as I shop. I'm such a curious person at times, there's no way I'd see that going on and not ask about it, haha.

I'm so thankful for everyone who donated this year to help me be able to get so many toys. And I appreciate all the help from people who put buttons on their sites, made posts about it, tweeted, put up links on Facebook, etc. So many people were such a great help and I really do appreciate it. :)

Happy Wednesday!
