makes up my life, and I feel truly blessed everyday for all those this and that’s.
Things are…dare I say…normal? around here lately….well, getting there.
My hair is growing back which I love. I never minded being bald, but I do enjoy having hair verses no hair! It is growing back light brown, straight, and soft with a cowlick in front. Last time it came back (yes, it is weird to me to think this is the second time in my adult life I have a whole new head of hair) it was black and curly. I have always had dark brown hair, so it being this light is taking some getting used to.
I am really able to work out again. We got an elliptical at the house and I have been doing that at least 30 daily, some days I do 45-50 minutes. I forgot how good it feels to sweat and to be sore and just feel active. I did Zumba this week and loved it. Now, don’t get me wrong – chemo didn’t give me some unexplained rhythm I wasn’t born with – I still look like a white girl with no moves, but it was a much better workout than I thought and I had a great time listening to the music and letting go.
I still need to go to bed early – not as early as I was but I am usually asleep by 9:00 (unless I drink coffee at 5:00 in the evening – no, not a good idea…even Ambein won’t put me to sleep after that!)
Pinterst: I might be one of the last people to get on the pinterest ban wagon – at first I just didn’t get it – I mean I got that it was a clausal time suck (which yes, I still believe) but I didn’t get all the great ideas that were lurking out there to be seen – now, I get it!!
But now I also feel like a loser mom – I mean, how in the world does someone make little chics out of deviled eggs, who has time to make these birthday parties seem so magical, make cake balls that look like golf balls and have all these wonderful activities planned for their children – I mean, I have one kid and can’t get all that crap done – eh, whatever – no one needs to eat that many flavors of cake balls anyway! And for the record, I really don’t feel like a loser mom – I feel like a great mom whose son knows he is loved oh so much.
I thank God daily, multiple times a day, for all the blessings in my life. I might be on maintenance forever (which honestly, I pray that I am…that way I know I am cancer free), have to go in two times a week for infusion, but honestly – it doesn’t matter – I am cancer free and have a truly blessed life from every which way.
And yes, cruise pictures/videos are coming this weekend – I don’t know why I dislike posting pictures so much…odd, I know. But I know there are a lot of people who want to see them…I will do it!!
