Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It's October!  Do you know what that means?  Hopefully the climate here in Texas will change from hotter than hot, to not so hot, cooler and possibly cold soon.  It's also the month we finally get to decorate with our beloved oranges, reds, golds and yellow decorations, pumpkins, stuff we bought at Canton.  We get to burn our pumpkin smelling candles and make our homes smell amazing.  I have a small front porch but there's always room for decorating.

LIFE!  Survival!   Five years out!  Yes, today October 18 is the day five years ago I was considered cancer free after I had my bilateral mastectomy. FIVE YEARS ya'll.

As August Approaches ...

RETIREMENT - Today I am one month shy of being retired for one full year.  The year has passed so quickly.  It seems I turned around twice and here I am.  It has been a wonderful year.  I loved working but I do not miss the high stress, unhappiness in the agency, countless hours of feeling sad because some of the issues I dealt with were out of my hands.
