Not quite as busy this week.

Last Saturday started a very busy week for me. A bike ride that benefited JDRF that day was just the start.

Tuesday, I was supposed to attend a monthly meeting for pump users locally. This would have been my first meeting with this group. But because of dicey weather and bad traffic, they canceled. I’ve been trying to get into one of these meetings for a long time (they don’t meet during the summer).

This goes back to a post from the first month of this blog, where I laid out what I think an ideal support group would be. But I also had to admit that I had never met with a support group before, and I was going to start looking for one. Well, it’s five months later, and I’m still looking. To be honest, I’m not sure that I really care about it anymore. I mean, I’m sure that support groups, and support in general, is great for people. But I’ve pretty much had to live this D-life on my own all these years, so it might be better if I just get comfortable with that and go back to depending on myself only.

Thursday, it’s time for another neighborhood board meeting. I’ve been a part of the board for three years, and I do it because I was asked to serve. When they stop asking me to serve, I’ll stop serving. Now, our president has stepped down in the middle of his term, and his next in line isn’t interested in stepping into the role. That may leave it up to me. Again, if I’m asked to serve, I will. But only if I’m asked. More to come on Thursday.

And on Saturday, I finally get to take part in JDRF Mentor training! I’m very excited about this, and I’ve been waiting for almost a year for it. After the training, I hope they actually have someone for me to mentor. No, wait a minute… actually, I hope there’s no one left to mentor. That would be great, wouldn’t it?

So I got a little found time on Tuesday (enough to write a little something). In a way, I’m glad that my life has gotten busy with worthwhile tasks. And I hope I’m able to do something positive, and make people feel good about themselves and their lives.

It makes me feel good too.
