My Thoughts

Lately I have had a lot of time to think.

Don't get me wrong, the kids and I have been busy little bees, but seriously, how much brain power does it take to play cars or babies?

I have been thinking a lot about what is important and what I want to do with my life.

Obviously, first and foremost is my children. I have probably been going over board with them. I have been feeling pretty good so I want to take them places, and do things with them, and buy them things. Believe me though, all this activity during the day is kicking my ass at night. But I don't care. My kids are happy so I am happy.

We are leaving in Sept to head back down to Houston. As much as I want to bring the kids, we have decided not to. I have a lot of scans scheduled and I will need Cody there with me. Plus, 10 hours in a car is a long ride for two little ones. Hopefully, one of the times that we go back down for a check up the kids can join us. Luckily, we will only be there for 3 days. If I can last a week without them, 3 days should be nothing.

I have also decided to start working towards my Master's Degree in Teaching. I started this last summer and then found out I had cancer so that was obviously put on hold. I am hoping to start back up with school in January.

Overall, I have realized that I am blessed. Yes, I have cancer. Yes, I will always worry about it returning. But, my kids are awesome and they are definitely a reason to fight my ass off. So cancer, if you are listening, I am always, always, always, going to kick your ass!

Bloggers Hit The Zoo

This weekend we were able to meet up with another bloggy friend. Jenn, from I Hate Whine, and her family decided to come to our town to go to the zoo. Luckily, it worked out that we were able to be there too. Ijust love meeting fellow bloggers. It's nice when you finally get to meet them in person after you have been reading about their lives for so long!
