Who knew I’d be doing this 10 years later. I decided to take a look back at the past ten Octobers.
9 years ago, I had just gotten my job at Edwards and was moving to the desert.
8 years ago, I made the floppy.
7 years ago, there was some type of crazy weave along and 2 pairs of socks from Socktoberfest.
6 years ago this month, I made the decision to move to Texas. My head also went all splody around that time*.
5 years ago, I pretty much spent the whole month blogging about my trip to WI that took place the previous month, trying to avoid the reality of the official NMO diagnosis
4 years ago, I was traveling back and forth to Pennsylvania trying to help family.**
3 years ago, I took fundraising for NMO to the knitters.
2 years ago, there was another round of fundraising, a completed pair of socks and DUCKS!
1 year ago, yet again, more fundraising and no knitting at all.
I think I better get on making this October a little more interesting than the past three. They seem kind of boring compared to those first few.
I’m not doing a fundraiser this year because the things in my head decided to act up last month. If you still feel like donating, here are some options.
- The Guthy-Jackson Charitable Foundation (medical research)
- The Collin McDaniel Hope Foundation (to help children and families)
- The TMA (research and support for people with TM, NMO, ON, and ADEM)
Happy Wednesday y’all!
*Hmmm. Anyone else wonder if there is a connection? Really there isn’t since we can now trace the NMO back to 2003, but it doesn’t hurt to josh with Texas about that.
**Yeah. Well, that was a waste of a month. Just saying.
