Back From Michigan
We returned to Texas humidity after 1 week of blissfully cool weather in Michigan.
We headed to long term parking in a crowded shuttle with other weary travelers. I was dreaming of being back in Michigan with beaches, wineries and bikes, when I noticed the woman seated in front of me.
I didn't take a photo, but I recognized those gray curls, sprouting from that woman's head. Spotting her hair made me think of 2 things.
1- I'm so glad I went ahead and touched up my gray. She looked sad and tired. "Oh please tell me I don't look like that?"
2- I realized I had not thought of cancer in a week!
I really don't go around thinking about cancer much, anymore. But usually there's a cancer commercial or a magazine ad, that forces me to remember. My week away from TV, newspapers and internet had given me a break from those reminders.
Even the days spent with my brother and his wife, had been filled with free of cancer talk. I'm finally at a point where not everyone is asking how I feel, or commenting on my hair growth.
I hope that sad looking woman with gray curls, was just tired like me. Maybe those weren't chemo curls at all. And hopefully she was thinking of something nice, like the trip she'd just enjoyed.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 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. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
