pancreaswanted replied to madison's discussion 'New diabetic'

Thanks for the note about the write a novel in 30 days contest. I might even get enough courage to try out a writers workshop. I see they have a group that meets fairly close to me and since we are all Hoosiers, surely we wont fight to much? Well we might fight a lot. After all we are Hoosiers. LOL

Hello you, yes I'm on my way over with the Kerrygold, although Dairygold is far nicer, and it has to be the one wraped in the foil type wraper. Hope you are keeping well, I'm trying to step up the ex a wee bit.

hello, I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!
