You guys are awesome!

I need to say this to all of you. Thank you! Thank you for being a wonderful support system. I think I would have many more blue days if I didn’t have this outlet.

I always fear when I need to let out some steam, that you all will go away, or click away with thoughts of, “There she goes again. Can’t she just get over it already?!” I’m always happy to find understanding and comfort in the words you leave me.

And I always hope to share words of hope and normality to fellow cancer victims. Baby steps, it’s much like AA, One day at a time. Through cancer I really learned how to enjoy the now, not looking forward or backward but loving the moment. I don’t much love the moments of laundry and such (that’s probably why I’m still trying to get caught up afte vacation), sometimes those things seem beneath me. Like why, should I be wasting the precious moments I have doing chores? But they are part of life and when I wake up still kicking the next day I decide they won’t do themselves and accomplish them. Uh, sometimes, but sometimes I have a wonderfully understanding husband wake up before me and do them first.

So really, I just wanted to let you know, that I appreciate you. I need you and I love having you in my life.

Maybe this is a good time to tell you that there’s something in the works here. You’ll be seeing some changes, although slow, it may be a month or so before everything’s done, but if you like, you are welcome to start reading and commenting over here. Right now the surroundings are just blah, basic, no-frills, but all the posts are the same, same content there and here until the change is complete. I am hoping the change makes it easier for you guys to comment. You’re the reason for the change, so I hope it will be worth it. I know many of you have had difficulty commenting on blog-city and although I’ve sought support several times nothing has changed so I guess I have to change hosts. So for now, feel free to read me here or here and I’ll let you know when the full change has been made.


  1. Oh yay, I liked your old site, but I really had a hard time commenting on it - it was not iPhone browser compatible. Anyway, I've added you to my feed reader, so I can keep up with the new site now.

  2. Wow Lisa, this is great!!!
    And I'm the first one to comment here,am I?
    It's a lot of "paperwork" on the other blog to get a comment through, but it was worth it, it has not kept me from doing so, but this of course is much much easier!! Thanks! I hope you get many mùany comments here!
    8'll see you when I get back from holliday! Take care huh?

  3. I love the new site it feels really lovely and fresh and commenting is much easier :)

    Blogs are a wonderful outlet aren't they. Take care!

  4. Hi Lisa!
    I came over to check out and bookmark the new place. I love all your recent photos, looks like some wonderful travels. I hope you are feeling better. I can only imagine how hard it must be to have to worry about the cancer returning. I'll keep you in my prayers.
