Baby, I Launched It!

After months and months of planning, I have officially launched my 2018 Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Fundraising campaign! It’s a really big deal for me. I have been involved with JDRF since its inception. Somewhere well over 35+ years ago, I participated in their first ever JDRF Bike-a-thon event. I haven’t stopped raising funds for this cause as a cure has not been found. Until a cure for diabetes is found, I won’t stop. I don’t think I can stop unless we obtain our goal. It’s got to come soon because I’m cranking up there in the age zone.

I’m always in a natural first position.

“Dear, don’t bother holding your tongue. Just use a glue stick instead of your lipstick.”

The thought of me taking a glue stick out of my purse instead of a lipstick would be hysterical. I might just use this as a prop one night when I’m out with my girlfriends.
Sometimes not speaking and listening more intently is the best and safest approach to being. You can never be misquoted from what you don’t say!

I waited with the Green team’s fastest girl. I wouldn’t talk to her even though she was my bunk mate. I knew I was going to beat her. I was thinking of all the things I was going to say when I ran passed her. I was reciting these lines in my head, “See ya Sugar! Bye Bye Birdie! Catch ya later! Smell my wind! Eat my dust!

So, here I am in the grocery store and I need to buy orange juice, but I can’t! I can’t decide which kind of orange juice is best for us. These are my choices: Orange juice with pulp, some pulp, no pulp, some calcium, added iron, added fiber, 50% less calories, low acid, organic, extra pulp, tangerine only, mixed blend, etc… Help!!! This was really confusing, so I went for the basic — original blend.
