I thought this year might be different




Beginning of year 6. Today marks the 6th year that we started our trip through cancer time and space. I thought I would not wake up with a knot in my stomach but I was wrong. I push it away but it still creeps back. So what to do.




I am going to work, I am going to leave a list for my daughter to do. I am going to start thinking about what to take to Vegas as I look take a sweater out to wear to work and then I will just stew a bit.




The one thing I did not do was set an appointment for Mary-Elizabeth to have her eyes checked. That leads to very bad things.
But I have look at the pictures. Then and Now. We have come a long way and with a great bit of success with more in the future.

But will we survive until College


I am really good at putting things "Out of My Worry Zone". We have been so focused on the end of the year activities that it is hard to figure out what to do now.. ME is freaked about not having a purpose in life, I am trying to get all the pieces together to pay for school and neither of us has had a decent nights sleep in a week. (Several of the activities have involved being places at times like 2:00 AM and 5:00 AM and we have not been in our beds and you can just imagine.)


So maybe another cup of coffee will help. Maybe a longer than usual walk with the dog. Maybe I should just realize we cannot hit all the deadlines and just breath today.
