Very tired tonight. I had gone to bed early last night but I awoke around 3:30 madder than a wet hen. I couldn't get back to sleep until quite late (or would it be early?). Anyway, went to work and dragged my ass most of the day. Fortunately, it was a rather quiet day client wise but I did have a few months of filing that needs to be done. No way I was going to finish it today. Probably take me a few days at best.

Everyone at work has been really supportive. Even mean boss was really nice! (She even brought me a coffee down after I had mentioned I had not slept well.) So anyway, kids are at their dad's tonight and I am going to be asleep in my bed by 9:00.

Something to look forward to is the Relay for Life. I am so excited! For my newer readers I am doing the Relay for Life in honour of my Nana that passed away from cancer May 6/04 and to honor my beautiful mom that was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer in February. During the relay I will be shaving my head. Some of you have offered to sponsor me in this effort. 100% will go to the Canadian cancer* Society. I will post the link in a few days. If you are American I would greatly appreciate if you would go to Keri's site and sponsor her efforts. She is doing the Relay June 17 - 18th. Let her know I sent you over!

cancer research is something I believe in deeply. One in three will develop cancer in her lifetime. To me those odds are staggering. And scary! I believe this disease can be beaten but it will be through research. Trust me, I would not be shaving my head if I felt for a moment that a cure was not at hand.

I promise I will post before and after pictures. For most of you it will be seeing me for the first time!

* The word cancer is intentionally NOT capitalized in my blog. I will not give that word more power than it deserves.

You need the rest so sleep well and thanks for the support. We know what it's like on this end and we pray for those who have cancer. We just wish it would go away and never be heard of ever again.

Hope you had a wonderful sleep!

It hink it's great that you are doing the Relay for Life. My aunt died of breast cancer and my doctor found some cells on my cervix. It scared me but I have been fine so far.

Good Luck!!!!
