jazzy Denise Nesbitt, we would not have ABC Wednesday to keep us on our toes each week. Also, we must thank our very own jolly Roger for taking on the duties of administrator of a blog that has exceeded all expectations!
That said, I should be going into a very joyful time of my life. The wedding preparations are moving along nicely and we're now talking weeks instead of months before the big day. However, mixed with the joy of the upcoming event is a jumble of emotions that include not only excitement, but also jitters and fear.
We have waited so long for this - one of the most important days of our lives. And as I am going through my own jumble of emotions, I'm finding that Lorne is exhausted and all stressed out, too. He's worried about money because he has been jobless for about 18 months due to cancer and the savings have gradually been disappearing. He's worried about having to have surgery to repair the damage done from his liver surgery. He's worried the cancer will come back at any time, even though his latest PET scan showed him to be free of it. And he seems to be looking for reasons to start a fight.
just normal jitters, but I guess I feel that at our age we should be able to cope better than 20-somethings. If we can get away to a nice warm sandy beach with palm trees, hopefully we will get all juiced up and be raring to get on with life.
So let's forget about the big C, broken ankles, and root canals! Let's just get on with joy of living without the jumble of jitters! Watch this space...

- I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.
