Hello Monkey hostesses! After an email conversation with Lisagh, in which she gave her blessing, I've decided to offer up Monkey's cousin, Carolina, to finish his journey for him. I'm not sure anyone would even be interested, but I have to admit, being a mother myself, the thought of the disappointed kids really bothered me. I know I'm kind of setting myself up for the same disappointment that Lisagh did, and the potential loss of my monkey. However, based on the comments over the last couple of months, you all seem like such nice people with so much enthusiasm about this little project of Lisagh's.
If you are one of the hostesses that is still waiting, and would like to host Carolina, please email me at dumelan @ yahoo (dot) com. (Trying to avoid major spam, I'm sure you gals can relate!) If I get enough affirmatives, I'll ask you for your contact info, and set up some ground rules. Like linking to the tracking number via UPS (or Fedex, whichever you prefer) so everyone involved can track Carolina's progress. I remember that from one of the comments and thought it was a great idea. The other rules, like letting everyone know that the monkey has arrived, at least one blog with pictures, three days maximum visit per hostess...all would apply. If this isn't something you feel you can comply with, then please don't volunteer. If this gets started again, I'd really hate to have it come to the same conclusion that Monkey's did.
Okay, let's see what happens...
