Winter Olympics & my 4 year anniversary.....

4 years ago, I was recuperating from breast cancer surgery & watching the Winter Olympics, high on pain meds, enjoying the time off from work (crazy to be happy about having surgery just to get a day off from work, lol).  So far, I'm doing OK ~ I am still cancer free.  I have one more year of hormone blockers, then I'm free of those & the oncologist (unless there's a once a year visit they haven't mentioned).  At my last visit, the Dr mentioned that studies suggest a 10 year regimen on the hormone blockers might be recommended...what ever it takes to prevent the return, I'm willing to do. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Last Tuesday I took my first statistics test.....and may I say "ARGHHH!".  It was tough.  I studied hard, and did the best I could.  I thought I would have the results on Thursday, but the first thing the teacher told us was that he wouldn't have them ready to return until next Tuesday.  I felt very let down.  I had spent the whole day steeling myself to accept whatever grade I earned on the test, and now I have to wait for 5 more days.....although I haven't been thinking about it too much.  I'm spending my time crossing my fingers that I did better than I think I did.......sigh.

We have been having record breaking warm weather down here in the Southwest.  Yesterday our temps were in the 70's!  In February!  The local weather people are still believing that winter weather will return, and I agree....the trees will start budding out and then they'll be frozen.  Stupid trees.

Have a wonderful week!
Love, 365


  1. Four years is awesome!!

    I would never consider going back to school for anything, but I admire people who are doing so for their own reasons. I will never understand, but I support it. :O)

    1. Thank you!
      Getting my bachelor's degree is a dream of mine, and I don't really mind the work it entails, but I do worry about the cost vs the reward at the end. I feel guilty spending the money on a degree when I probably won't earn enough (over time) to pay for. On the other hand, the hubby is happy to write off my expenses.


Fighting the good fight......
