I'm still here

I'm still here!   I guess I got so boring I stopped blogging, not that I wasn't boring before but  you know what I mean.  Boring is good I guess.  We are still plugging along.  Still living day to day.  Still missing dh every second of every day.

Last time I updated (wow!  was it really January??) I was doing the 100 day challenge.  I finished it! Go me!!  But as soon as I was done with my 100 days I quit.  Boo me!   I felt a lot better for the exercise but I actually gained weight.  I just lost my motivation and quit. 

The kids are doing good.  M will be starting high school in a few weeks. How in the world did my little baby girl become a high schooler?!??  She used to fit in my arms and now she's taller than me.  She's a tall girl, at least 5'9" last time we measured.

O will be in 3rd grade. I can't believe that either.  My little mama's boy is growing up. He's still obsessed with Legos.  Still got an awesome imagination and can build pretty much anything he wants to out of his Legos.  He gets that from his daddy.  Wes could build anything.  Only he used metal and wood and not Legos. ;)

I took the kids to Chicago in June.  Just the three of us on vacation.  I am proud of myself for going on our own but I decided I probably won't be doing that again anytime soon.  Until the kids are older I think I'll be asking my parents to come along on any future vacations that are more than an hours drive from home.  Just paranoid I guess but I hate the thought of something happening to me and the kids having to deal with it on their own.
So, that's it.  I should probably change the name of this blog to Livin' in Boring Town. :)

So, SO happy to read your updated blog. I was worried about you! Boring is okay... I am STILL boring, many years along on this journey.

Completed my current rounds of chemo, and had a CT (or CAT) scan today. If the scan(s) do not show "anything" (as in anything bad) then they will tell me that I am in remission. And I will go on a checkup-every-three-months rotation. I have an appt with my surgeon on Friday, where she will tell me the results.

I am so proud of you and how far you have come on this rotten journey that none of us EVER want to go on, especially someone with two school-age kids like you. And I am glad that you went on a vacation by yourself - now you know that you CAN do that, even tho' you said it made you uncomfortable.

Anyway -- more hugs from your much-older buddy in this situation. It's just something we get THROUGH, not something we get OVER. {{HUGS}}
