Year marking Dates

I recently had my second mamogram.....the first was when they suspected something was wrong a year ago. This one, to my relief, was negative. Also, about a year ago I was going in for my hysterectomy when they discovered that the tumor was malignant after all instead of benign like they first thought. It's so hard to believe. My hair is coming back thick but not quite as curly. It's not quite as long as I'd like. I'm hoping when it grows longer I can get it cut nicely.

I recently won a month at Curves so I've been taking advantage of that going as much as I can. I do enjoy it a lot.

The flu has hit our house. Nicole has been sick since Sunday evening. We are hoping she can return to school tomorrow. Lexi, who sleeps with her, has been in a bad mood tonight so I'm just waiting for her to be next. Norm also called from work this evening complaining of a bad headache. I had the flu shot at work so I'm hoping that I either miss it or at least have an easier time.

I know I haven't written for awhile. It's been busy with all of the kids stuff and lots of time I would come with the intention of blogging but just couldn't get in the mood.

I am hoping things slow down by Thanksgiving. I've been feeling stressed having to take the kids here, there and everywhere all the time. Our Ladies at church recently attended a conference called Spaghetti For The Soul by Kathy Triccoli. It was just a really nice time to refresh oneself. I know I came away less stressed. It was nice to be able to spend time with other women and just laugh at life. The singing was great too! :)

Wow, October already?!!!

September went WAAAY too fast! With work, helping kids with homework and all of their extra curricular activities, time just flies so fast.

Norm and I were reflecting this week. On October 6 it will be a year since my tumor was discovered. So much has happened since! It's just hard to wrap oneself around the whole thing. And as much as you wish to return to normal, it's hard to figure out exactly what that is. Yeah, you can resume activities but there it is always in the back of your mind and it just changes perspective on everything.....and yet it just puts everything on a deeper level as well. We are studying "the New Eve" in church and it's really hard to answer the questions at times.
Tyler just turned 11 about a week ago and he seems to be going through a growth spurt. I am afraid I am going to have to go in search of size 12 Slims in pants because the 10's are starting to look short.
Our town's fair is starting next week and the kids usually enjoy going to that.
October is Breast cancer Awareness month. This is a reminder to schedule that mamogram!
