3 s’s: sleep and stress and sun

An awesome spring day! Yay!

Well the good news is I really slept last night – just fell asleep – plain old natural, unassisted sleep.  I feel sooooo much better, especially emotionally.  Now if everyone in my world could sleep too I would be even happier.

I am kind of worried about my mother.  She is a delayed reaction person on tough news like this, and now this has come full circle and smacked her in the face.  My mommy is no shrinking violet, but she is my mother and I am worried and I love her.  My family has been through a lot in the past few years.  I love them and I feel really guilty at adding to the stress of my mother and my sister.

And then there is work.  Awesome in the distraction category, not so much fun some days in the stress department.  I am, however,  walking like a fiend to keep my stress levels down and quite frankly it’s good for my ass too. 

Last night after work I went to a political meet and greet of candidates at a local firehouse and it was fun as a bunch of my friends were there and one of them introduced me to a couple more breast cancer survivors that I did not know about.  I am quite frankly beginning to wonder who hasn’t had breast cancer? And there are so many cases where I live that I can’t help but wonder why?  Is it all genetic and in families or is it environmental?

Thank you all for your support and encouragement – one of my friends sent me a hug coupon yesterday which was so awesome.  I am only a week into this and have not even hit the hard part yet, so many thanks for putting up with me.  I am afraid it is a debt I will never ever be able to adequately repay.

I am so lucky to have all of you in my life – I am blessed.

Today is a nice sunny day inside and out.  And remember this Mother’s Day is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Philadelphia – the 21st go round for this event.
