JDRF WALK (reaching out to all my Blog Sista's)

To fight to find a cure for this horrid disease.
On August 1st my eleven year old Grandson Beau was taken to the emergency room very ill, it was there he was diagnosed with a grave condition called DKA(DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS) he was airlifted to LA where he was put in PICU and remained there fo four days so they could get his blood sugar stabilized.
Beau has been through so many changes since that day and he will be insulin defendant the rest of his life, anywhere from 3-5 shots daily...not to mention all the pokes to test his Blood sugar. However, he has been such a trooper and is doing well now and with the help of his devoted family he will face the daily challenges ahead with everyone's support.

I will be participating in the JDRF(Juvenile diabetes research foundation) walk on November 7th in Beau's honor along with other friends and family members. Our team is called "Beau's Battalion"
If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to help me reach my goal of 200.00 you can do so here....

Please remember no donation is too small it all adds up, 1-5-10 dollars your help is greatly appreciated,thank you so much!

My desk rehab

I posted last week about a desk I wanted to check out from craiglist that was for sale for 35.00 ...well I bought it and sanded it down and painted it black. It turned out OK....not great. looks kinda blah,maybe some new knobs or I was thinking about buying some wood to make a new top for it and staining it cherry.
I don't know....maybe it just needs some colorful accessories, I will think about it for a few days.

After... Desktop not organized yet...
