One more day until the Relay for Life...
I am starting to get excited about the event ~ just hoping the weather cooperates and it doesn't rain. Otherwise my hour walk from 1:00-2:00 AM will be less than enjoyable! Since this is my first time at this event I had no idea there were so many things to do during the 24 hours! Limbo, lip sync, crazy hair, ice cream eating, etc. I guess I won't be sleeping much, but that is part of the fun.
I doubt there is anyone out there whose life has not been touched by cancer and the havoc it can wreak on a family. I have had family members, friends, and even Gracie my whippet was lost to cancer. Any and all charities fighting these diseases are where my support will always be directed and I hope that we can come up with more successful treatments in the near future.
Of course when I was getting the dog's breakfast ready this morning I managed to wrench both knees...not just the bad one. How did I do it you ask? I tried to step over a toy Anneke had left on the kitchen floor and to my dismay I stepped on it and a knuckle bone that was hiding underneath. I am ashamed to admit it...but I said some very bad words. I will just have to take it easy tomorrow and walk more slowly than my normal pace. I have already told my teammates that I will not be partaking in any running, sack racing, skipping, or limbo a little lower now...so they will have to take up the slack there.
Have a great weekend everyone. Hopefully I will have some great pictures to post.
