What’s that thing that Scarlett O’Hara says – “after all, tomorrow is another day”?

So, I’ve done it.  I’ve ridden around on two more complete circles of the earth.  I’m still here.  I’m upright and not even crying and yelling because here is the thing, its exhausting emoting that much.  It’s just science.  Eventually you come back to a normal state you body can manage or you explode.  I think that’s why some people have a bulging vein in their forehead – they are closer to exploding – literally exploding – than the rest of us, or so I would like to think.

Last night, I sat down and worked on some glitter projects that in my head seemed like a great/beautiful idea.  (screw you Pinterest)  Three of the four didn’t turn out as fantastic as I would have liked, but that’s ok.  It’s not like I put a huge amount of resources in them.  It also might be ok because I have been wrestling a lot with the question of how much glitter should a 42 year old woman actually have in her home?  I mean, I would like a “grown up” home.  Not one that looks like a 13 year old girl won an endless shopping spree to the glitter rainbow unicorn emporium. ( OMG – do you think a place like that exists??  Can you even imagine??)  I feel that is almost as bad as being a crazy cat lady.

I also had a talk with myself last night about said self.  I have been taking pretty bad care of things lately.  I got out my hypochondriac’s kit and checked my blood pressure ( Gulp) and blood sugar before bed ( not bad at all).  I’m going to try over the next days, weeks and months, above everything else, to work on taking care of me because as we all know, once you do that, everything else falls into place.  Life’s up and downs are easier to handle. You feel stronger both physically and mentally.  You hair looks better and your nails too because you actually care about filing and polish application.

I’m going to put this out there.  Most of you know, about 10 -12 years ago, my dad was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  He underwent treatment and the cancer has stayed in check since but it is still there.  When this first happened, one of the ways I tried to feel better was to get involved with the Light the Night Walk that raised money for the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society.   I walked, raised money, and volunteered and was quite aggressive about it; some of you might remember.  The Light the Night walk for me was overwhelmingly emotional because the way it worked was that everyone who walked carried a balloon with a light in it.  There were red for supporters, white for survivors and gold for those who had been lost.  I was struck the first few times by how few white balloons there were and it was really heartbreaking.  I was lucky that I was able to call upon my terrific group of friends and they all came and walked with me.  Over four years, if I remember right, we raised over $15,000 dollars for cancer research and patient support.  My favorite part of the walk was when my little team would come together for the picture and I would look at everyone and realized that they were all there because I needed them to do it.  It was the most wonderful feeling.  – So – there is a point to all this.  I registered for this year’s walk at the Duck Pond. It’s Thursday 10/12/17 in the evening.  What I need is at least one other person to register,  and go with me so I don’t not go.  It doesn’t cost anything to register, all the money is raised through donations.  You can choose to donate to yourself and be done with it or you can put a sweet link to your fund raising page on Facebook.  I think you need to raise $100 to get a T-shirt, but if you don’t want to do that much, I’m sure they will take every dollar they can get.  Here is the registration link:

https://registration.lightthenight.org/event-selected/73941/individual

and if you could let me know if you want to meet up and walk together or carpool, that would be great.  Also, if you want to donate – no pressure – I’ll put a link up on Facebook as the walk gets closer.
