|My birthday present.|
The old one was slowing down incredibly, and struggling to do basic things. So my birthday gift from each of my kids was money towards this new one.
That may not be especially exciting for you reading this, but I can assure you that writing is much easier if the letters are appearing on the screen as I type them, and not 30 seconds later (and often in a different order. I was beginning to think I'd forgotten how to type, but no, it was just the old computer struggling to keep up.)
But that's not all that's new this week. On Friday, which is World Lupus Day, the Warriors' Wall goes live. Lupies from all over the world, in their own words, get to share what they want the world to know about living with lupus. (This is an ongoing project, so if you have something to share, you can still submit it, now, or even after the page goes live.)
And that's still not all. (Is this starting to sound like a bad informercial yet?)
Did you see last Friday's Towards A Cure post? (If you haven't read it, you really should. It's the most exciting post I've done.) I've just had an email from the John Curtin School of Medical Research. By the end of the week (so hopefully, to go live by World Lupus Day as well) they will have the link ready so you will be able to donate money directly to their Lupus research. Wouldn't it be cool, when we finally get a cure, to be able to say: "I helped on that project." (And let's face it, if you give them a couple of dollars, you will really have helped.)
