My Invisible Friends are the Best !

Invisible friends? That's what I call my friends from my online discussion group. I've been a member since 1999 and have made some great friends. I've actually met 39 members in person, so I guess they are no longer invisible.

The point of this story is to tell you what one of my cyber friends, Moni, has done. Moni is such a neat person. She is also an avid bicyclist. Here's a link to Moni's Biking Journal. Anyway, to get on with the story. Last week Moni suggested at our forum that everyone start wearing red on Thursdays to show their support for several of us in the group who are going through Cancer treatments. So many answered that they would definitely wear red and keep us all in their thoughts and prayers. I can't tell you how much this means to me. So I am wearing red today in support of all my friends who are going through these health problems.
Thanks Moni!!!!

Changes, changes, changes !!!!!!

Has it been a year since I last posted? Time flies!
A lot has happened in the past year. I was diagnosed with cancer, had surgery, had 2 rounds of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation. I still have another surgery coming up soon. But I am feeling much better now and I'm looking forward to getting past this time in my life. I have too many things to do and too many places to go to be down too long!

One of the side effects of my chemo is that I have no desire to read. Normally I read 4 or 5 books a week while working full time, so this is a real change for me. I look forward to when the chemo wears off and I want to read again. I am still getting books and the stack will soon reach the ceiling, LOL.

I am no longer working, which is okay as I'm a homebody anyway. And I have the most wonderful family and friends! So I'm doing just fine.

I've been inspired by my sister's and niece's blogs and I am determined to be more regular with my writing here.
