I have been neglecting my blog in the last week or so. I guess it is because I don't have too much going on right now. I enjoyed the long Memorial Day weekend. I did some scrapbooking with friends and relaxed. ("Relaxed" means sleeping in and watching The Office and Ugly Betty reruns.) I have been helping out with the clubhouse and pool rentals for my neighborhood association. Work will pick up next week with the beginning of Orientation. We will have at least 4,000 new freshmen at UTSA for the fall and they need academic advising!
I received an email this week from a grad school friend, Jody. She is doing a triathalon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Team in Training. Wow... a triathalon! Go Jody! I give her major credit to trying this new challenge and raising money for a important cause. When someone you care about is affected by a disease, you realize how much research there still is to do in medicine. There are so many diseases with treatments but no cures. There may be treatments, but can scientists and doctors find a better treatment or a cure?
You can visit Jody's Team in Training Website for more information. Some of you reading this may not know Jody, but I realized that one way I can support her efforts is to post this on my blog.
