Wanda’s World

By Wanda Bingaman

I’ve been wearing TWO shoes for over a week!!! Nobody mentioned the swelling that would continue! I’ve always had chicken legs- there’s no way to sugarcoat that. Well, I’ve completely lost all my calf muscle. It’s seriously sad. And I didn’t even have that much before! But, now, my leg starts to swell if I’m on it too long or have shoes on or I’m awake. My entire leg is the SAME size from my hip to my foot!!! It’s not cool!!!

School has started for me. Students start in a week. Can’t stop, won’t stop is now my new motto on my crazy looking leg! I am used to flying around the school, I realize I was always in a hurry. I now have to ssssslllllooooooowwwwww down. I physically can not do fast.

First order of business? Working this week like a crazy person, then on Saturday participating in a walk!

A walk, you say!! Would you like to come join the walk, dear readers?!?! It’s a FREE walk on Saturday, August 24 at 8am. It will be held at Hope Middle school (2995 Mills Road, Greenville), in the back of the school. We are asking for a donation of school supplies, but they are not required. Come out, get a walk in, then head over to the Winterville Watermelon Festival and Parade!!!
