Life has somehow gotten a bit more hectic recently. and I'm not exactly sure why. There have been some scheduling changes at work, so I will now be working Saturdays for a while; we found out this week that if we can close our loan before December 7th, the house we have been trying to buy for almost 2 years will be ours!!!
Katie has been sick for the past couple of days... I took her in to see the doc today and the Strep Test showed positive in less than 30 seconds. Poor thing has been so miserable.
I feel like I have so much going on... I have come to a hard decision. I have decided to take a season off from Team in Training. So - no Paris for me... BUT I plan on shooting for Dublin in the Fall (and Scott is thinking about joining me with Team in Training). I want to continue to work on my fund-raising for the event, so any proceeds from the "Cookbooks for a Cause" or other donations will be forwarded on to my Dublin event. Since my Dublin account is not set up yet, if you wish to make a donation using a credit card, please just use your PayPal account and send payment to email@example.com. Or you can send me a check, made out to "LLS" or "The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society" or if you make it out to me, I can post the donation online using my debit card. So, whichever is easiest for you works for me!
I am still so excited about the Cookbooks - they should be arriving within a couple of weeks! So, be sure to get your orders placed. They will make fabulous Christmas gifts!

Dear Friends and Family:
After completing my first full marathon in 2009, I was wondering what I could do in order to stay motivated to keep running. So, I joined Team in Training (TNT) as a way to motivate myself and bring deeper meaning to my run. As a participant of TNT, I am training for the Marathon de Paris and raising money to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) find cures for leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma.
This cause was personal from the get-go, and is even more so now… I am a leukemia survivor -- and until quite recently had been cancer free for almost 12 years. On October 29, 1997, my life was forever changed when I was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). After chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant in 1998, I thought my fight with this awful disease was done. However, this past November my annual blood draw revealed that I have entered into a relapse. The good news is that the amount is still minimal and so I will not be starting any treatment as of yet. The doctors project that eventually I will start taking Gleevec (an oral chemo). For now, they will just be more aggressive about monitoring my blood. I am unsure of the road ahead, but with the endless support, research, treatment, and prayers, I know that I will win this marathon for my life.
While training for the Marathon de Paris, I have committed to raise $5000 to support the cause, and would love your support. Your donation will help the mission of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of finding cures and saving lives. Your donation is fully tax deductible.
To donate now, click on the "Donate Now" button on the right side of this screen.
I also encourage you to pass on this website to anyone else who might be interested in helping the cause. Whatever amount you can give will help – every penny counts!
Thank you in advance for your support. I could not do this without so many wonderful friends and family on my side. Life Is Good! I LOVE the support that comes from being a part of something bigger than myself - Team in Training. A big "Thank you" to each of you and your support in my endeavor to complete this event in celebration of my life, as well as in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancers. I need your support to cross the ultimate finish line - a cure!
