So, Do You Come Here Often?…

If you do come here often, then I suggest you seek additional forms of entertainment.  For anyone who had become used to my frequent but irregular blogging back during the Cancer days, you might think that my blog stopped working, or that I forgot how to type, or maybe even that I had died and nobody knew how to login in to my WordPress account to update the blog.  But none of that is true.  My lack of writing can be blamed on only one thing…me.  When I was sick, I had more time to sit around thinking and writing.  But I am proud to say that I have fully joined the world of the living and I am busy people!

Most of this winter, or as I have come to call it, “The Winter That Never Was,” I spent working.  For those who don’t know me personally, I own a Meeting Planning and Group Travel Management firm called VenueQuest.  We coordinate the logistical planning of conferences, training meetings, incentive trips and school outings.  Unlike the past few years, business has been good lately and is demanding my attention.  I am very proud that we took a big step last month and moved our little business out of its previous home which dominated my basement and moved into a real office space.  For my Atlanta readers, we are now located just down the street from North Point Mall.  The two things I have learned the quickest about commercial space is that I feel a lot more productive there than when I was working at home and alternately fielding client calls, feeding or walking the dogs, cleaning the kitchen, or occasionally tending to nagging yard work.  However, the flip side to the efficiency is that there are interruptions from total strangers.  People just come walking into the office wanting to sell us stuff.  I was not expecting that.

I think I should stop writing now.  This post sucks.  I know I don’t have anything to say and I just started writing out of guilt.  However, I did attend a conference last weekend that I am going to write about, so don’t unsubscribe yet.  I promise I won’t completely waste your time the next time I write.

    Hi there,
    I found your blog when I did a google for ICE chemo treatments. My big brother Charles (37 in June) has had a relapse of HL stage IV. He will be starting treatment next week and has appointed me his “director of research” to find out as much as I can – tips, questions for drs, insights – on the upcoming treatments.

    Please can you offer any advice, insights, tips on what it will be like for him to go through the ICE treatment? He will also have BEAM chemo and a stem cell transplant:(

    Thank you so much and glad to read you are busy in the working world and healthy.
