Blog changes

Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.

Festival of Trees

The Teton Valley Hospital Foundation had it's annual Festival of Trees fund raiser. I'm on the TVHF Board and an active participant in this fund raiser set up. We were raising money for a cardiac monitoring system for the Teton Valley Hospital. This weekend we raised about $40,000 toward it! It was well worth the hard work we all put in last week and for the months preceding it.

Enjoy the pictures! There are not many of the trees because the pictures did not come out well. Photographer error (me).

The wreath making team at the See N Save Thrift Store

I'm not useful at making wreaths so I tried to amuse the wreath makers with some big, shiny panties and a plaid belt.

My head to toe thrift store outfit. Everything I have on was a second hand item! The whole outfit cost less than $30. I probably look like it but don't say it in the comments!
