Let the party begin!

Well, I've thought about it, ruminated on it, worried about it, ignored it, been distracted by it, and thought about it some more, but now it's here. It's June 2011. In 25 days, I'm turning 50. The big 5-0. There is no denying it, and no turning back.

One way I'm dealing with it is by making plans. I have things planned for each weekend (and more) this month. I'm going to a ballgame with A; having brunch with some of my women friends; going to NYC with two close women friends to see plays, go to museums, eat wonderful food, and experience that which is New York City; and on the actual day of my birth, I'll be with my birth family for the start of a week-long vacation on the Cape.

In addition, I'm ending my current job, and starting a new one.

Let the party begin!

Kudos to you:) Remember 50 is the new 30;) And my family and I take a week at the Cape every summer! Isn't it great:)

Hey Adena,
My name is Liz and I have been reading your blog over the last few months. First, I wanted to say happy birthday. I am truly happy to wish you health, joy, love and friendship, and according to your last post filled with your plans on how to spend this awesome date, you seem to have all those things in place. Cancer has no place in your life, but fun does and I am happy to learn that is exactly what will happen on your birthday.
That said, since your blog is a great resource for someone going through cancer I wanted to reach out to you to see if you were interested in a new online social support network (that I am the community manager of!) called I Had Cancer. It is a new and free social support network focused on connecting people based on experiences with cancer so that they can easily communicate with one another and share information. I would love to tell you more if you are interested, so please let me know! Because I was so struck by your writing I would love to send you an early-access pass with extra invites for others you may know going through this journey.

Either way, thank you so much for your writing. Take care and best regards.
If anyone would like information on I Had Cancer please email me.
