So this year just keeps throwing crap in my direction and seriously messing with my plans along the way. I just can’t get a break – and it’s only MARCH!
Lets get the bad news out of the way – I’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m pretty pissed off about it because I’m only 36 years old, I have three small children, and I’m kind of attached to my breasts (and hair), and I don’t relish the thought of having to pump my body full of poison to rid it of something that shouldn’t be there in the first place. I also find myself randomly bursting into tears but I’m sure my emotions will settle as time passes.
Aside from the fact that my family and friends are super supportive and amazing, there’s not much good news so much as not-as-bad news. The cancer hasn’t spread; I’ll have five months of chemo, then surgery, probably radiation therapy, and hopefully cured by Christmas.
I don’t know how present I’ll be, or how much time I can devote to the site, but I’ve always found designing and scrapbooking an excellent escape from the stresses of life, so hopefully I’ll have energy to devote to it.
I’ll be back soon with some goodies that were prepared before the shit hit the fan. xxx
