Moments of Wonderful - …rather than a lifetime of nothing special. A diabetes blog.

I’m Sorry

My JDRF walk is tomorrow. I did not meet my goal. Including what I have in cash from family and work friends, I have about $212 of my $250 goal. I would say I tried, but I really didn’t. I had great plans – those paper shoes you can sell, raffle tickets, donation buckets, the whole nine yards. I was going to have a huge team from work, we were going to have award-winning matching shirts. You get the idea. Turns out there is this big (but kinda optional) work event this weekend so no one can walk, or no one is chosing to walk. I don’t want to walk. I don’t want to walk by myself. I am seriously considering dropping off the money, checking out the vendor tables, and going home. How bad is that?

Monday is the day to Raise Your Voice for Type 1 diabetes awareness. I put the logo on my blog and I even bought a cute shirt in the cafepress store, but I have absolutely no idea what to do on Monday.

I found out today at work that there is a very strong possibility that I will be moving offices and apartments (my housing is part of my job) within the next few weeks/months. So much for a nice relaxing summer (yes, I said summer. It starts for me the day the students leave the first week of May.)

I called to thank my grandma today about a week after I got her walk donation check. I haven’t called my aunt since I visited her for Easter. I have been neglected my friends, especially those that live far away, and I really miss them.

Anyway, I’m sorry I’m such a loser.

EDITED TO ADD:
Thank you anonymous donors – I am not sure if you know that I can see who you are even if the world wide web can’t and I really appreciate your support. Thank you also to those who have commented already with kind thoughts. Neither were the goal of this post downer of a post, but both were certainly appreciated.

    There are many words I would use to describe. Loser is most definitely NOT one of them.

    I’m alway impressed by your enthusiasm and energy. That doesn’t mean you can do it all.

    Enjoy the walk. And If all you do for Monday is wear a T-shirt over the weekend, that may be more than I’ll be doing.

    Sara you’re no loser. I’m sorry your walk plans didn’t work out. I wouldn’t want to walk alone either, so do whatever you want to do. You know the best laid plans blah blah whatever… anywho have a good weekend!

    Sara – You are NOT a loser. You’re a very sweet, caring person who’s just having a rough time right now. One of my favorite sayings is, This too shall pass.

    I’m sorry you didn’t reach the entire goal, but you were pretty darn close! It’s too bad people are choosing other activities instead of the walk. I understand about not wanting to walk by yourself. I wouldn’t want to do that either. But you might meet some interesting people. Who knows? Whatever you decide, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    You are definitely not a loser – you do so much! I’m sorry you’re going through a rough time right now. We’re here for you, though.

    I’m sure you’ll reach your goal. 🙂
