my sun is your sun

  • Planks are evil.  My trainer had me doing them at the very end of our workout, which is even worse.  I had to hold them for 30 seconds, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but those seconds felt like an eternity.
  • This week has been so much fun that I can hardly believe that tomorrow is Friday.  In particular, Monday night was crazy fun.  The boyfriend and I were up until 2:30 am and I’m still not even sure how it got that late.  That’s a sign of a great night. 
  • I have another awesome weekend planned with the boyfriend.  So many fun things on the agenda.  Can’t wait.
  • The Mini is so much fun to drive.  It’s also fast! I pick up speed very quickly and without even noticing.  I love to drive fast, so I anticipate getting into a lot of trouble with this car, though I did set the speed alert to 80 mph.  At least I can fix my own tickets. Lawyer perks. 
  • Happy August! I have my three month follow-up scans this month.  I’m a bit nervous about that.  I’m trying not to dwell on it.  If the cancer is back, it’s back, and obsessing won’t change that.
  • That said, having a cancer/cancer-treatment free month has been fucking amazing.  I feel like a completely different person.
  • Being treatment free in July has given me a chance to realize just how much cancer has changed me.  I knew it had, but I’m discovering it has changed me in more ways than I anticipated.  I feel like the change is mostly positive.  I appreciate life more.  I’m going after the things I want.  I refuse to sit on the bench while life passes me by.  I did that for too long.  There will be no more of that.
  • I finally have an upstairs neighbor.  They moved in today and it was really loud.  I’m a bit worried, but it has been pretty quiet since the movers left so maybe it won’t be so bad.  *hoping*
  • Jax is always obsessed with the fish at the vet’s office, so I bought him his very own fish tonight.  He is a Betta fish.  Jax named him Nemo, of course.
  • I haven’t had a hot flash in weeks.  I start Tamoxifen this month though, so that may change.  I really hope not.  
  • And because you know you want it, here is a 16 weeks post-chemo hair pic.
