What a summer I have enjoyed. With my kids in camp, and not a Dr.’s appointment scheduled…Well except for a yearly Gyno appointment, I had an “worry free and health issue free summer.” I know that is how most people enjoy life, but for the past three summers, as many of you know, either I, or a family member, has undergone one sort of cancer treatment or another. And this summer…that was not the case…Now, this is not to say that I don’t have friends being faced with this awful disease and treatment, because that would not be true. And this is alos not to say that I don’t think about what they are going through, or ways I can help them get through it. I have, however, enjoyed a summer of appointments, and errands, and meetings, and tastings, and dinners out, and visiting friends, and visiting family, and planning for the kids 13th, and…well just all things I have not been able to do for the last 3 years. All things that are just part of LIFE….and boy was I thrilled to do them all.
With that being said, with my new found freedom, I gave up on the blog for a spell. And honestly my schedule for the next 3 weeks doesn’t let up much, so my blog may lay dormant until the beginning of October (or maybe even November). But fear not, I will return and with new inisght into just about everything. Even though the title remains The Cancer Made Me Do It, I will begin to tackle all different “life” issues, from the same humorous (yet sometimes cynical) perspective.
My summer has also presented a new emotional turmoil. My Mom and Dad, who I have written of often, are moving to Florida just after Halloween. This move will give them a new and improved lifestyle. I am so thrilled for the opportunity my brother and sister-in-law have helped to create; but I can’t help but feel sad about loosing my constant, and loving lunch mate. Of course, now I have a reason to go to Florida (one other than Disneyworld). I am thankful to Facetime, Skype and all of these other technological marvels because that will make it a little easier.
So while I am busy with so many things…helping to pack them up and move them just adds more to my schedule. But, again, a busy life is better than no life at all…
So I bid you good-bye for a few weeks. And wish you all well…
I will be back.
