But I will not, repeat, will not spend too much time editing my profile and poking friends (whatever that is) and downloading stupid applications and sending 'friends' the gift of the day for $1. NFB will remain my vehicle for updating everyone on my cancer, my therapies, my life as it is now. The thing that drew me in is my sister Lisa's decision to do the Ride to Conquer Cancer along with Jodie. Lisa figures Facebook will be key in her fundraising. So now I'll be helping them both far exceed the $2500 fundraising minimum.
All that said, I'm looking for 'friends'.
Anna and I went out skiing yesterday, along with about 10 friends (real flesh-and-blood friends), to celebrate her birthday. The trails were lovely, I love wide groomed trails. Chris (Marie's hubby) and I went on the 'Super Blue' trail for advanced skiiers. Anna said she liked seeing the chemo patient and the cancer survivor heading off on the black diamond run. (Chris had a very nasty bout with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in, I believe, 2001. He has now passed his 5-year cancer-free date.) After skiing we all went to dinner at the Green Tomato in New Liskeard. My choices on the menu were severely restricted, but that doesn't mean I didn't completely enjoy what I did have: chardonnay, house salad, bison steak with veggies and fries, homemade blueberry sherbert, and coffee.
Rainy day today, so I'm staying put. Think I'll book back on and head to work tomorrow.
