Getting Settled!

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a few days because well, I feel like I'm not supposed to be posting anymore since I'm officially in remission, but the more I think about it, this blog was done for me, so if you don't want to read anymore, that's fine, but it's still my post-cancer life, which is different than pre-cancer life... sooo .... I'm continuing!

I haven't been up to much lately. I've been REALLY tired this week! The past few days I've been sleeping until 3pm, which is NUTS! Today was a step in the right direction, I woke up around 11:30am! I think my bed at my parents place was screwing up my back along with my sleep.... so I'm glad to be back at my apartment in my own bed - which I was smart enough to wash my sheets and comforter so that when I came home I has a nice comfy bed, yay!

I'm getting more situated in my place, which is really exciting! I'm actually thinking of painting an accent wall in my apartment. Like a nice deep cozy red or orange, or maybe a green... I picked up some color swatches today and I'm going to hang them up and see which ones stand out the best. I'm also going to hang some pictures in my bedroom tonight! And soon I'm going to go replace Leon the goldfish since I'll be here permanently again! Yay!! Maybe next week. I should probably wait a little after I start work - yeah, I know it's just a goldfish, but I'm crazy!

I'm excited. It's kind of like I just moved in again! I love fall and being able to light candles and not be too warm! My apartment currently smells like McIntosh and Peach... very fall, duh. And I've been keeping my fridge fully stocked with apple cider!! Yay!

Today I also went and got my eyebrows waxed and a manicure! So far my brows look awesome! I thought I might as well! treat myself before I go back to work - and then maybe in a week or 2 get a massage or facial or something because I'm sure my body would love the relaxation! I still have some money left from a gift certificate too, yay!

That's mostly my story as of lately. I feel like I'm forgetting to post something, but I can't think of it right now. Send me lots of happy thoughts for Monday!

Enjoy you weekend before going back to work Kelly. You will readjust to getting up earlier on work days after a while...don't overdo the hours though...stick to the 10-4. Do you have a long commute/drive? Hopefully these hours will keep you out of rush-hour traffic (if there is such a thing there). I'm excited for you that you'll be back among friends and being productive...it will help clear the cobwebs and put much of the past year's ordeal and worries behind you (at least push them towards the back of your mind). Can't wait to hear how your first week back was!

Guess what? Everybody still likes you "even though" you are in remission. I think there will be a lot of value for other people hearing about you getting back to life.

It will become all the rage! Everyone will be doing it!

And I bet all the sleeping is mental relief from a hard year. Take it easy on yourself, and keep posting!

(unless of course you don't want to, then just ignore me)

I hope you're having a great day, luv! I don't have another song to "sing" at the moment that pertains to Mondays. I'm sure you're sad about that!

Best of luck, Kel!

I'm so glad to hear you are still blogging. I know that I will when I'm in Remission. I'm going to change the name of my page to "My life AFTER Hodgkin's Lymphoma". I'm going to use my page to blog about my new journey....my weight loss. Have a great time at work and enjoy your "new" apartment. I like the idea of red or orange for the accent wall. I wish my husband would let me do something bold like that.
Talk to you soon,
Jane
