the Olympics. Every day I see someone’s amazing story and it’s fun to see hard work payoff. The fact that we can witness this payoff for so many people from so many different countries in such a concentrated period of time is quite amazing.
the opportunity to keep moving forward despite the tough days.
spending time with one of my best girlfriends from home.
There are a lot of things I love about my friend, Jess. But here are a few I can think of in a few minutes:
- She’s fun to be around.
- She always has a smile on her face.
- She sends me Petra Mahalimuyak bidjos. “Pold, pold, put it away!”
- I’ve never felt as if she’s ever judged me despite my faults.
- She looks great in periwinkle, pink, and purple, not all at the same time though-that’s just too much.
- We can be lookin’ hott and sexy one minute and then be completely goofy and silly the next.
- She has really delved into her Carribean Queenie roots by participating in Carnival events around the world…well really around the U.S. and Carribean. I love the outfits and I’m gonna join you one day!
- She understands how much it meant to me to make it into the Varsity Pep Squad. (Yes, I was in the Pep Squad.)
- She has such a great heart for others…especially a visitor of the feline persuasion. I don’t know how you do it.
- She likes Skyflakes.
I love you and I miss you already, Blanche…Samantha…my beloved Jess.
Thank you for being a friend.
a month of being back home.
over a month of healing.
My first ‘like.’ thanks Christine!
Progress. Today, I received word from my endocrinologist to lower my long-acting insulin dose by six units! I’m hopeful it will help with my bouts of hypoglycemia.
