This is pretty low on my frustration list, but it counts. The day I got my diagnosis, we started canceling reservations for the Colorado trip, scheduled for 3 days later There were too many worries to fret over the July Trip to D.C. And I didn't even think about the October trip planned until my surgeon said, "If you do chemo and radiation, you will be tied up for 9 months to a year." That was tough to hear.
But then I started thinking about all the great trips Don and I have had in recent years. We've explored tiny, curious places and also the well known, grand ones! In fact we've traveled so much, sometimes I feel like I don't have time to digest one trip before we're off on another. "We've got to do this while we both are equally driven and both healthy!" We've reminded ourselves.
So with time at home, I've suddenly found some time to enjoy those past travels! I've killed some time blogging and I've organized photos and re-lived a few trips. I love the "live in the moment" feel of traveling. But there is nothing more satisfying to me than revisiting those memories through photos!
(No, not a photo of flight to D.C. It's the only plane pic I have stored in my computer!)
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
