November is the Offical Leukemia and Lymphoma Month, says ME!

Hi everyone. I'm a little less cranky today, been keeping busy and keeping the crankies at bay. I'm extremely itchy though, ugh! I need to find my stash of benedryl somewhere! This skin crap has got to end soon! WTF!

I'm going to Block Island tomorrow with mom for Canadian Thanksgiving. Should be fun and maybe a little hectic with a bunch of family at the house. I'm warning people in advance that I'm not their maid, yep I repeat, I am not your maid!

Hmm what else... Have you met my new friend Baldylocks? She had leukemia and a bone marrow transplant and is now working her way towards recovery, and of course being one of my new cancer BFFs. We decided that with all of this breast cancer awareness stuff, the other cancers get scammed, so we declared November Leukemia and Lymphoma month! Our colors are green and purple and our official drink will be a red cancertini - really as long as it's red you can call it that! Sound good? Mmmk, it's official!

So really, that's the latest and greatest for you. My sterry strips are starting to fall off too!! I've lost at least one, hooray! Oh and I think it's supposed to be nice this weekend, so hopefully I can get some swimming in while the water is still warm!!!

Okay, that's all I got. XO!

Here's the part where I admit that I don't know what an RSS Feed is.

I suck at blogs.

I'm on board with this November being Luk/Lymph month. It may be when my transplant starts anyway!

Do you have Canadian relatives, or are ya'll just trying to fit in a record number of holidays into the year? Both my parents are Canadian, Ontario-ians, but I was hatched in Michigan. Hope you find that Benadryl, like, yesterday. Take care,
Morgan

Thanks for the happy birthday! It's actaually today and I just recieved a check for a painting I had in a gallery. I'm going to do the retail therapy you suggested and get rid of those damned track pants!

Looks like you're spreading the word on Leukemia and Lymphoma month. Purple! Green! Red!

I'll be doing it as well soon. First I'm going to party! (that means going out for lunch, shopping and martinis).

I hope you shake the crankies. You could watch the video on my blog. It helps...trust me.

Oh, and I watched the birthday video. Thanks, it was SO cute!

Did I ever tell you I come to your blog just to listen to your music sometimes?

Hey I love that you linked me! I wish I knew how to do that. I did figure out how to add the YouTube video, though. I'm pretty excited about that.

I guess I'll stop repeatedly sending you messages and go have my birthday!

Have fun at Block Island and with the Canadian Thanksgiving lol!
OK November it is! But why not go with a purple or green tini? Or is it cause the nat'l luk and lymph society color is red?
Sorry i haven't been in touch lately, just been really achy and just goin to get shots which make me more achy. Got your card today, thank you!
