Happy Cancerversary to me!
Posted by wendy on 2011/11/11
So, I feel like I should write something about today. It’s pretty momentous. It’s Veteran’s Day (Dear Veteran’s, Thank you for keeping me safe. You guys are doing a bang-up job.). It’s also 11/11/11 – the day of “ooooo”. It’s also my cancerversary. It’s also Day 3 of me being gainfully employed (ah, back to 2 jobs again–the way it’s intended). Unfortunately I don’t particularly FEEL like writing, so this is going to be more ‘update’ than ‘thoughtful blog post about my feelings’.
So, this time last year, I had cancer and was losing my job. This year, I’m cancer-free and starting a new job (incidentally, my new job is literally in the same building as the old job–and, with many of the same people, as they hired a good many of us back). My contract work is steady. Those are good things. I can see it’s going to take me a while to figure out how to balance all of it and still have a personal life–it feels like I’ve done nothing but work for the last 3 days.
I’m getting a da vinci in December. I’m not particularly looking forward to more surgery, but I prefer a bit of pain now to avoid a lot of pain later. I’ve always been the girl who rips her band-aids off as quickly as possible. Fast and painful trumps slow and painful every time. ha.
I have been absent from this blog (badness!), I know–I’d like to say that I’m ‘concentrating on living!’, but really, I just spent most of October completely avoiding cancer-related stuff as much as I could.
I’d make a fine ostrich.
