it seems i have fallen off the wagon. i was going for 30 days of blogging with NHBPM. clearly, i didn't make it. i feel bad. sort of like i let myself down.
life got in the way. that sounds so lame, but it's true. some days it just doesn't seem that there are enough hours. i was off work (my night job) for a week. i still had kids to look after during the day. my housework is so far behind i may never get caught up! i have family coming for November birthday celebrations on Saturday, and i work Saturday morning. i will spend most of Friday morning (before work), and late Friday night (after work!) preparing for them.
today i went to my first ever visit with a chiropodist. he seemed surprised that i had never seen one before. he went on to tell me all the horror stories about diabetics and their feet. he did, however, jokingly say that i had probably heard it all before. overall, my feet are not in bad shape. i do have to change my footwear, and perhaps consider orthotics in the near future. the visit was well worth the $45.00 it cost me.
i stopped at my Canadian Diabetic Assoc. office this afternoon. i picked up a bracelet and a lapel pin. i have been wanting these for a long time now, but they never had any available. while i was there, i was talking to the woman about a few different things. one was my visit this morning, and she mentioned an information session on monday. i may attend if i don't work. the other was volunteer opportunities. it seems they need someone to do supermarket tours. since i work in a grocery store, she thought this may be something i would be interested in. and i am! i really am! i think it would be an awesome opportunity, and i really want to do this!
now i just have to figure out exactly how to fit this into my already overloaded schedule!
