Yeah yeah, I know, It's about time. I sort of forgot about this blog. I have a lot of blogs. oops.
ANYWAY. here is an update.
So far, I have raised $1,415.00...ish. This is ONLY from my facebook group, and some Christmas presents! I still plan on sending out a letter to family, friends, and church people, which I think will provoke a great increase in donation. ALSO, I received an email from a fellow BNB-er from a different route who is in Indiana, and is planning on working concession stand at Lucas Oil Stadium to raise funds, and would split profit with whoever helped her get people to help work. So that will be awesome.
I get my bike as soon as I get measured at the bike shop. Then, I just need to order it and I will receive it in 2-3 weeks after that! SO EXCITED.
I just got a gym membership at the YMCA yesterday, so that I can start training TODAY while it's freezing outside still. As soon as the temperature hits the 40s, I plan on getting that bike on the road and riding the heck out of it!
This is going to be an extremely busy 5 months. What with training, fundraising, volunteering, working, and keeping somewhat of a social life (which I am hoping will just run so paralell with volunteering, that they merge and just become one.), I am going to be a busy gal.
BUT I AM SO PUMPED!!!!! I am starting to study the facts and stats of affordable housing issues and what I need to know, and what I need to teach, and AHHH ITS SO EXCITING.
Life is really happy right now. I am just really Blessed. It amazes me.
Hope all is well with you and yours!
