To everyone whoever told me to "chill out!" all I have to say is "I'm STILL TRYING!!!!!!!!!"
SO......... I"LL KEEP DOING IT.....AGAIN..And again, and again........, for Special Olympics.
Yes, that's right, I’m still thawing from last year and I'm going to do it again this year. (Yea, I really should have my head checked) Oh, to be in the islands at this time of year, as a matter of fact, any time of year. Oh the warmth of the Virgin Islands, the sun of Curacao, the beaches of Aruba but all this is but a dream because I'm going to (I can't believe I'm saying this) Plunge into the Big Pond (that's the Atlantic Ocean for all you land lubbers) in FEBRUARY, IN WINTER......AGAIN, AAARRRRGGGHHHHH! (Last year the water was a balmy 39 degrees)
I really would like to be in the islands at this time of year but it's for the Special Olympians and I wouldn't miss it for anything. The only thing I get out of this, besides the refreshing (yea, right) plunge in the Atlantic, is an unexplainable feeling seeing a Special Olympic event and watching true sportsmanship and team spirit.
For your amusement and my cold feet (that will take another 12 months to thaw out)) all I ask for is a donation to help me raise money for Special Olympics. I don't ask for much but, it's for the kids. If you've ever been to a Special Olympics event you know what I mean, if not, go to one and find the magic.
Thanks for everything.
