My final procedure

Well, here it is, the morning of the last procedure since being diagnosed with breast cancer last June 9th.
It's crazy that it's only been a year. Wow. I mean, there's been a lot packed into this year, but not having to take chemotherapy, which really slows a person down on getting back to normal, put me on the fast track!
Thanks for all the kind words of encouragement, the ears for listening and the hugs throughout this last year.

Must be May

The first rose has bloomed in my yard this year! And I thought that for the first time in 5 years since we've lived here I'd show the rose bushes a little love. They are about 50 years old, which I love. Guess that's why I want to take care of them. But, after weeding around them, digging, putting food down and water them, my body looks like it's been in a losing battle with a cat!!! I'm wondering if it's worth it!

Anyway, here's the first few blooms...enjoy!

Here's a little bit of life....mine....such as it is.

Sunday, May 9, 2010

My husband and I planted our parking strip with some gorgeous grasses and lavenders, etc. But, one of the grasses, a sea grass, overtook the whole thing and was out of control. We decided to pull it all up and start over. However, the sea grasses root system is extremely extensive and we had to pull it out, twice!
Here we are at work. I put Betty in the back of the station wagon so she could be outside with us. The traffic is due to us being right down the road from a ferry. Apparently, a boat was unloading!

One month of unemployment

Here I am, a month into it. Unemployment. First time in my life!
Here's how I spend my days when I'm not scouring the web for jobs, meeting contacts for coffee or doing yoga!
And yes, I know....Betty is looking chunky!

Birthday and 1st day of Unemployment

Here is a video of my recent daily life.
It is a re-enactment of what I did on my birthday AND actually what I did on my first day of being unemployed!

The Yoga studio gets new chairs

Before I left Getty for good, I was hoping that they would want to donate 2 chairs to the yoga studio. The studio needed them SO badly and Getty had just gotten new chairs, plus all the chairs of the people they laid off!!! Chairs were everywhere!
My friend Erin and I pushed 2 chairs to the yoga studio which is a couple of blocks away from Getty.

Workstudy at Maya Yoga Studio

I volunteer 3 hours a week at a yoga studio to get free classes. Here is a glimpes into my time there...If you notice me walking funny (Bobby says I walk funny normally) it's because I'm trying to tiptoe. There is a yoga class going on and I want to be quiet!

My days are filled with things I do. Regular things. Here I am battling the camillia trees in my backyard. You'll see Betty 'helping'.

Friends and I were walking to lunch the other day, reminiscing on our trip to Palm Springs. Realizing that it had been almost a year since we'd gone. Time really flies when it's rainy and gray!
One day on our trip, we drove out to the outlet mall and that's where all the fun was had! Not really, but we were ROTFLOL and that was just from the bathroom!
Check out the video....

Morning Routine

I was discussing the idea of routine with a friend of mine just the other day. Routine, rituals, etc...I do pretty much the same thing EVERY the same order, with very little variation usually.
As we were discussing it, we were saying how we think it's good. Right? It's good for babies, kids and me. AND Betty.

This is one part of Betty's morning routines.

Betty and George and cow

Here I am. Jumping on the blogging bandwagon and the bandwagon is really full. I've never felt compelled to write a blog and I don't know if I'll be doing this often...(had to look up the definition of blog to make sure it wasn't "daily" and thank god didn't mention that word!) But, I've got lots of pictures and video I'd like to be sharing with you guys and I'll be doing that here.

Start each day with toast!
