Wearin' My Heart on My Sleeve

Wearin' My Heart on My Sleeve

I hate to cut off my nose to spite my face. That's what I feel I am doing by leaving AOL journals. Change is terribly hard for me. And, I am just not happy about having to learn how to manage this blog system. I was about ready to suck it up and return to my AOL journal, but I can't even get the dang thing to save an entry. Some journalers indicated that you have to go empty a "cache." If I can't figure out how to create a decent looking entry here, I am not sure I can manage to empty my cache. Grrrrrrrr.

This has been a pretty shitty week. What are the odds? What are the freakin' odds of having two of your sisters diagnosed with terminal cancer when they were/are just 38 years young? I am so pissed and so sad. It's just not fair. Krissy, my "baby" sister who's already had more than her fair share of life experiences....including 3 strokes in the past couple of years that have left her partially paralyzed on one side......just got out of the hospital with a diagnosis of cancer throughout her body. Her lung, ovaries, and in her lower intestine. We don't know what type of cancer it is yet, but we know it's spread and we're not sure she'd survive any treatment considering her fragile health. We'll know more next week when the Oncologist meets with the family. Ten years ago, we went through a rare form of deadly breast cancer with my sister Kim, who's greatest wish was to make it to her 40th birthday. It didn't happen.

This is an Ad-Free Entry

It appears we're having many of our long time blogging community members abandon ship because AOL Journal land has decided to add advertising banners to our journal headers. I am not the least bit interested in helping AOL make any more money or subjecting my readers to eHarmony advertising. Don't we all get enough junk mail and advertising as it is? Shame on you AOL journals.
