Hi- Sorry it has taken me so long to post something. Here are the 2007 Crawl for Cancer Photos It has been busy since my sister moved back and with all the events lately. I have to say, the pub crawl was incredible. It was a great time. You should all do the next one, nobody should miss it. I am not a huge drinker but it still is a blast. We rented a "bus" to take us down to Westport area, we went from bar to bar, drank pitcher after pitcher (8 at each bar, cheating only slightly), ended up at America's pub where we all got our groove on and then we were bused home.
I have to thank all the people who went with my two groups. Thank you for supporting the cause and for an incredible day together. Thank you to Chris Ireland for getting us involved in this and to Jan Velander (Jen's mother), who we got to hang out with quite a bit. A lot of my group got to meet her and everyone was amazed by her as I was as well. I am so lucky, we have already become family, Jan and I. We had an instant connection. Thank you to all the people who recognized me from this site and came up to me to introduce themselves. I felt famous almost. It is so nice to put faces with names and know that you all are supporting me. I was so glad to meet each one of you! I hope you continue to email.
Thank you to the Jennifer Ireland foundation for my generous donation and honor of receiving it. I hope to continue to be involved with the foundation and find more people to give to.
I want to give special thanks to Kool Nites Limousine, Inc. owner Gregg Shane. Also thanks to our Chauffeur David B. We appreciate you donating your services for this wonderful cause and for getting us to and from the event safely and being tolerant of our crazy group. This company was absolutely wonderful! If any of you ever need transportation I highly recommend them. Doug put a logo on the side of this site so you can find them easier. Again, thank you!
I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day. I did! I got to spend time with my mother and family, as well as Doug's mother and father. I also got to spend some precious time with just Doug, Ella and I as we went to Deanna Rose Farmstead, walked around and saw all the animals. We had a great time.
Andrea got moved in yesterday and spent her first night at her house last night. They have a nice home not far from us which is perfect.
Anyway, I wanted to get something out to you all to tell you how much fun we had at the premiere, pub crawl and mother's day. I am doing well. I had bloodwork yesterday but don't have results back yet. I amazingly survived all the activity with just a little pain but otherwise I did well. I appreciate everyone's kind words and confidence that I am going to win this battle. I have had so many people tell me they have a feeling that I will beat this, I am doing all I can to win it and I hope you all are right. Usually your gut feelings are right!
Talk to you all soon. Shawndra.
