Hellooo, anybody there?

It's been way too long since I've updated . . . were you about to think I'd forgotten about my blog? Actually, I have kinda put it on the side burner for a while. Hey, no news is good news in my case!! But here's some tidbits for you . . . .

Got back from the oncologist today for a check-up. I have to wait for my CA-125 blood test, but the exam was good (well, as "good" as a gyn exam can be!). I go for a 6-month follow-up CT scan in August. Since the highest chance of recurrence happens in the first year, I'll be getting watched pretty closely for quite a while. Fine by me!!

John found a new place to rent in North Carolina. We went up last weekend to check it out and it is fabulous!!! It actually has bedrooms for all of us (much better than the one bedroom we were all crammed into before), but it is still nice and cozy. Huge windows with gorgeous views, wraparound deck, hardwood floors and log walls . . . we couldn't ask for anything better! There is a creek and a pond nearby. We took the girls out for a walk and we all ended up wading up to our knees in the creek. It really brought back memories for me of spending summers in Blairsville with Mammaw and Pappaw . . . fishing in Boggs Creek, collecting rocks, building toy boats to float in the stream. Of course mine always got loose from it's string and Daddy would have to chase it down, running and splashing after it!! This year will be ten years since Daddy's accident so it was a nice memory to have for Father's Day weekend.

The girls got their hair cut for summer. Cute little angled bobs like Victoria Beckham. Once my hair gets long enough that's the cut I want . . . oh yeah! My hair has come in!!! I'm not wearing a scarf or headwrap anymore. It is really short, like a crew cut, and it pokes up everywhere. But who cares! I've got hair!!! It could be purple and frizzy and I'd still love it!! Let me find a photo and I'll post it . . .

Thanks for still reading. Hope everyone has a great summer!
