A week or so ago I posted that I hope to achieve my goal of 10 straight years and 3,000 blogposts by 12/31 on this very site. Over the years I've built in "off days" so I don't drive myself crazy if I miss now and again. I'm cutting it close this year with all the time off I took in February/March. That was due to my uterine cancer diagnosis the day my book was finished - all the writing (January 26th). How ironic, right?
Thankfully, the surgery got the contained cancer with a radical hysterectomy on February 17, 2021. The pathology report was Stage 1-A, the best it could be with that diagnosis. I am blessed!
My hubby, Bill, sat on me and let me heal like I needed to. I didn't lift a finger for several weeks which, looking back, helped me come back strong and feeling good. It was a rough go at first. Healed, I am in full summer mode with exercising - my daily planks, walk/runs and lately, swimming laps - 64 most times I go to get in a full mile swim. I am also quilting up a storm with T-shirt quilts.
I'm hopeful to post for the rest of July without missing a day. August, with some travel on the horizon, might get dicey for missing a day or so (especially if I don't have wifi). It's all good though. It's been one heck of a ride. I've learned so much with the daily posts and crafting stories, plus quilting and everything else, which all helped me to write and finish The Focused Fight. I am forever grateful!
