But before that momentous and exciting announcement there will have to be a few others: grad school acceptance (hopefully), where we are moving next August, and S's new job in that location. Then maybe a brother or sister for Buddy because he really needs one. And then it'll be time for the BIG ONE.
But today, I bring you this announcement:
I REACHED MY 3-DAY
This is a big announcement! It means that everyone I know helped me raise $2300
And, because my favorite blog posts are the ones that send me somewhere I've never been, I want to let you know that Teal Toes month is coming up!
September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month and painting you toenails (or fingernails!) teal, the ovarian cancer color, is a great way to spread awareness of this quiet but serious disease. You can even get business card-size info cards to pass out when people ask you about your teal toes and fingers. During the 3-Day I am going to paint my fingernails teal and have my little business cards available for other walkers!
I probably would have never known about the symptoms or severity of ovarian cancer or the opportunity to spread awareness if I hadn't lost a childhood friend to the disease a year ago. Paint your toes teal for Megan and for women everywhere!
