This & That

Time is just flying by lately and I thought it would be much more fun to write about something more interesting than treatments.Sometimes I think it is easy to forget, that fighting cancer is just a part of your life, not all of it.One which no-one chooses but many of us have to live with day to day. With that said, here are some of the more enjoyable parts of my life to share.

Chris and I have received our passports and are looking forward to traveling to Europe for the first time! We will visit Tim in Prague and then spend some time in Great Britain. We have been busy trying to plan the trip out. It is quite time consuming and so difficult to pick what to do and where to go.Thankful for Rick Steves' travel books!
Speaking of Tim, he has decided to move back home in July and we are looking forward to all of us being together again.

Over Spring Break  we all decided it was time for a family camping trip. That is exactly what we did! Four crazy days at the lake camping. We started in shorts and left in 6 inches of snow! What a fun time we had playing sport toss,LOTS of Uno, making smores and beautiful walks in the snow.

Today began a new session of classes I am teaching and thoroughly enjoying! I teach a Ladies Boot camp and a 5k Learn to Run group as well as some personal training. It is so fun to be a part of  these groups and peoples lives, seeing the wonderful changes in their lives. One of the ladies tonight asked me " so when do we get that runners high"? :)

Everything is budding and blooming outdoors! I have planted some tulips, that are beautiful and  my garden is complete with herbs and veggies! The garden has always been organic, but this year we have decided to use all organic for the yard as well. Using fertilizer that smells like a chicken coop and nematodes for bug control. So far we have very green weeds and a garden that is doing ok. Not sure we know what we are doing, but we are learning.

Chris and I are thrilled to be running again and the last few runs have been fantastic! We are making it a priority to run 3 times a week ( plus what I do with my groups). I truly believe that running has played such a huge role in how fast I am recovering from surgery and radiation. You go into the treatments, etc. stronger and recover much faster. Even if all you can do is walk it helps!

This concludes a little of "this and that". Sometimes I just think about how happy I am and how much I am simply enjoying life right now :) God is so good to  me.
