Gosh. It has been so long that I am not even sure where to begin.
I took a break, stopped the chemotherapy and every other drug doc's have placed me on over the past ten years. I'm not gonna lie, a few months in paradise actually felt like an eternity in hell.
The flip side is---it was all worth it. My head is clear, I am healthier and I actually feel like a normal human being again.
I love Hawaii. It is beautiful and everything one would imagine it would be to live here. The jacked-up prices no longer bother me and the simpler life has felt far more appealing. I miss our Arizona home, very much so. I miss my friends and family. I miss having a Target within five minutes. God do I miss Lifetime Fitness! But today, I had the rare luxury of laying on the beach all by myself. No children to worry about drowning; nothing but the sun, sand and myself.
J has mono so we had to cancel his big summer plan which was surfing lessons. The kids, myself and the dogs have all settled in nicely. I am actually going back to work and school! It's time. I miss that piece of myself.
I'm going to leave this post short and sweet as I ease my way back into writing.
To my blogging friends, I have been absent in writing and reading what you have written. Never has a day gone by that I did not think about you all and how life was going. Just like old friends, life has a way of picking up right where it left off.
Welcome to my life in writing as I share the up's, down's and everything in between. Always choosing to make the best of any situation, follow the kiddo's and I as we explore this new home we call Hawaii.
