I'm typing my entry Saturday night this week while watching the Olympics and the Red Sox because tomorrow I have to drive to NH for a funeral. Well, they are calling it a celebration. It's for the wife of my department head at school. She was only 52 and died from what began as a melanoma about a year ago. The doctors tried everything but the damn cancer just kept on growing. So, I'll be gone all day since it's a 2 1/2 hour drive one way.
I did begin One False Move by Harlan Coben and am enjoying it like I always enjoy his writing, but between company and just feeling kind of sad, I haven't really felt like reading much.

I am so sorry about the death of the department head's wife. I lost a friend to cancer (what started out as breast cancer) this year. It's such a nasty disease.

I am watching a little bit of the Olympics right now.

I hope you have a good week!

Linda, sorry about the funeral. Cancer is such an awful disease-it's taken many special people from me. I understand you feeling sad, it's hard to concentrate when you feel like that. I hope the rest of your week will be better-we've got the Olympics going at our house too.
