Here is a picture of my very good friend, Sara, from Chicago who was here this weekend visiting us. (Also check out the new photos on the left) We had such a good time. We mostly just hung out doing nothing but laughing, watched a classic movie that brought us together as friends. You may know the movie, " Better off Dead". We became friends from rattling off quotes from this movie in college, annoying all of our sorority sisters who were trying to sleep. We just giggled the whole night and became great friends. We went out to the lake, I vicariously enjoyed water tubing by watching Sara and Doug bounce around on the tube with huge smiles on their faces. We ate, slept, talked, drank, swam, laughed and laughed and cried a little. It was a perfect weekend. Thank you Sara for your friendship, it means the world to me! It was so hard to see her leave. I hope I see her again. I really felt with this visit that I had to tell her exactly what I felt, that I appreciated our friendship and her. I don't know if and when I will see her, so I have to let her know now in case I don't get the chance to later. I think I need to do that more often, seize the moment and tell people how I feel about them or about my relationship with them. Ya know. We should all do that. We don't ever know when we will see each other again. I don't want to have any regrets.
I am gearing up for a busy week, restarting chemo on Wednesday. I go to have my teaching for chemo tomorrow afternoon. Then I will go in Wednesday bright and early to start up again. I have to say, it has been so nice not having chemo these past few weeks, it is really going to be mentally difficult to go Wednesday. I better get to bed, it is getting late. I wanted to read more of my book tonight, but I wanted to get these pictures up (with the help of Doug of course). I also read through all my birthday cards again since it is so hard to read them closely at the time of receiving them. Thank you all again for the kind cards, etc. I will get my thank you's out soon. Have a great week everyone. I appreciate you all taking your time to read this, thank you once again. Shawndra
