i'm off!

I am off to attend (and speak at!) BlogHer in San Francisco. And since my laptop is still at the computer hospital, I will be offline for the next few days.

I am in for a late night, because no matter how much I have been scrambling. I will be glad to be done and on the road.

As for BlogHer, I am, in equal parts, excited and completely panicked.

If you are going too, and see someone whose blog has "cancer" in the title, please don't assume that she doesn't want to have fun, OK?

I will be home late on Monday night and have chemo the next morning, so not to worry if you don't hear from me again until July 23rd.

Meanwhile, I have two new posts that I haven't told you about up at MyBreastCancerNetwork.Com.
Living With Metastasis: Younger Adults Living With Cancer and a piece that was very hard to write but deserved to be written, Punk Rock Mommy: A Tribute.

I'll be back at the keyboard in a week!

Hi Laurie! We met at BlogHer and I stopped by to check out your blog. Too bad about your laptop, but maybe it's actually a good thing? That way, you can just concentrate on having fun.

Great to have met you!

Hey, look at those new 'bookmark this' tags!! Pretty cool!!

You were already gone when I shared that I was appreciative of your time and Elisa's. I have been a stay at home mom for over 10 years now, and it has been a long time since I have worked with others to try to solve a problem- working as part of a team, albeit small and impromptu, but still... So, thanks for that experience, and of course, the conversation.

I'll be back.

I really enjoyed meeting you at BlogHer and especially got a lot our of your breakout session. Hope you had a good conference as well!

So happy to have met your acquaintance! (See? I have manners! I can use them sometimes! My momma would be pleased.)


p.s. how'd your boys like the DS?

It was quite clear at the conference that you wanted to have fun. LOL!

It was lovely to meet you, however briefly. :)
