Hello Carb,
I wanted to stop by to say THANK YOU once more for your kind donation back in September.

Also, I wanted to give you a very special heads up about this year's Big Blue Test:

I'm really kind of wrecked. This isn't about me. Missy attracts good folks around her and I am so thankful that she considers me a friend. At the moment I feel somewhat inadequate. I did manage to convince her to bunk with Kit who also happens to be T1. Stress makes Missy's BG drop like a rock so I'd feel better if she were somewhere where they knew the deal intimately. Kit is my hero.

Thanks, Cindy! One shout an hour might help us stay sane:)
