Breast Cancer 3-Day

I am walking in the Chicago Breast Cancer 3-Day for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Won't you consider sponsoring me?

I'm walking 60 miles in the Chicago Breast Cancer 3-Day! Will you help me reach my goal?

European Vacation 2008

We visited my sister in Holland the last 2 weeks. Awesome! Traveled through Germany, Netherlands and Belgium. Walked for miles and miles -- 20 miles in one day! Amazing that nothing happened to any of the horses or other animals while we were gone, and I only had 2 anxiety dreams in which I dreamt I forgot to feed the horses and had to clean a ton of poop. :-) Found great tack shops, and if the US Dollar weren't so weak, would have had really killer deals on tons of stuff. Instead found some decent deals and unique items like a halter and cooler with the Friesian flag motif.

One Year, Come and Gone

February 6th was my 1st year anniversary for my diagnosis of breast cancer.

February 26th was my 1st year anniversary for starting chemotherapy.

Today is my first year anniversary for having a catastrophic car accident that totaled my Ford F-150 and a grain truck pulling 900 bushels of seed corn. We all walked away with hardly a bruise.

One year feels so different. Things seem so far distant, yet they still affect me like it happened yesterday. Does the surreal juxtaposition of life and death always stay with a cancer survivor like this?
