Really, really random stuff...

I love influencing people to start blogs...an old coworker back in Virginia has started one. And if you have any wordpress tips, she is having trouble with wordpress (and I am of no help). Go visit Trublonde.

And Happy Anniversary Edie and Dave!

I am 2 posts away from 500 posts...you may want to come back for that one...

And for being a Monday yesterday, it was pretty good. About a year ago, our local newspaper, the News and Observer, ran an article about bloggers. I emailed the staff writer about the article (and honestly, I don't even remember what I wrote her about, I think I was complaining about something that was in the article). Well, that staff writer contacted me. The News and Observer is starting a site for Moms in the Raleigh area, and I was picked as one of the bloggers to be a contributor! Wahoo! They will even run a piece in the paper about the site for Mother's Day weekend in May, so I have to get my picture taken and stuff. I think I need to get a haircut...

I also received an email this morning...one of Audrey's teachers at daycare was diagnosed with Lymphoma last week...turns out the pathology report was wrong, and she does not have cancer. What a relief...but really? Can you imagine having a cancer diagnosis and then having that changed?

Awesome! You go girl.

I've heard about people who were misdiagnosed with cancer. One lady had a double masectomy, it was on the today show. That just sucks...

Congrats on the recognition! You deserve it. 500 posts is pretty impressive... I have a longgg way to go before I get there.

and no I can not imagine getting that news, but at least it wasn't the other way around!

wow, congrats! That is so great.

Congrats on the writing gig with your local area blog! That's great, and really what a fantastic opportunity!

500 posts? WOW!

And if I was diagnosed with cancer then told I did not have cancer, I think I would kill someone. The poor woman. I can't even imagine being on that emotional rollercoaster.

OMG, I can't imagine what that teacher went thru. UGH!

Congrats on the writing gig! That paper isn't owned by Gannett is it?

Edie said...

Thanks for the anniversary wish!

I think that teacher should sue her doctors... I couldn't imagine having that diagnosis and then it being retracted.

Actually, lymphoma takes a lot to diagnose... it took my dad over a year to be diagnosed. I hope she is out of the woods, but you never know. I'd be getting tested some more.

ooh, a published author!! Don't forget the little people...just kidding! I AM SO THRILLED FOR YOU!!!!! You deserve the recognition, for sure! 500 posts, huh? Somehow I'm at over 1,100 and never knew it. Need to keep better track.

I love random! ;)

Yeah on the recognition! you rock! I so want to be you when I grow up!!

What a relief that the daycare worker does not have cancer- but what a scare! It is like those people on tv shows who tell everyone off, sell everything, and then find out they are going to live. Well, maybe not just like that, but you know what I mean.

I've tried to do wordpress but got frustrated!

That would be so difficult to get a diagnosis and go through the process of dealling with it then suddenly it changes. I suppose one would have a different look on life either way.
