Update #102 (or something like that)

I had a very nice day today. I worked this morning, then went to LaConner for an Athletic Director/Secretary meeting. I had the pleasure of seeing all the wonderful A.D.'s and secretaries I work with (from a distance). I was greeted with lots of hugs and well wishes. Just another reason I love doing my job.

I got a little scolding from my daughters and husband about working too hard, so for their benefit....after the meeting today I wandered around LaConner with my friend Kim Boyer (one of the many things that brings me joy). We had a lovely afternoon. I feel more rested tonight. Please don't worry about me. I promise I'm not overdoing it!

I just got off the phone with Jake who sounded down and out. I asked what was going on and he told me he's had a bad couple of days. Being the nosey mom that I am...I asked what was bothering him. He proceeded to tell me that a "brother" from his fraternity just lost his mother on Tuesday to CANCER. He said it was a taste of reality that he wasn't ready for. What could I say? I could assure him that I'm feeling fine. I could tell him that the medicine has made me feel better. But, I couldn't promise him anything. I knew this year was going to be a tough one. It may be harder than we expected.

I know many of you have me in your thoughts and prayers. Please don't forget my family. I think sometimes they need it more than I do.

Hugs and kisses,
Big Dreamer Dor

You are an amazing woman. I look up to you and admire how you are facing your life and fighting. When I see you and just hug you don't think I am crazy...just want you to know we care. Your strength and courage has touched me. Fight on. Anything you need never stop to ask. I could even get Drew to give you a hug for a dollar I bet. Love ya.

A little "scolding" from your daughters?!? I'd say you got SPANKED!!
Even SuperHeroes like you need protectors (your family) to help shield you from the Kryptonite.
I love you AND your family.
