Good morning! It's been awhile since I wrote. We got home on the 12th and been trying since then to return to routine, etc. so there is no time for me and the computer it seems. Its a full time job with the kids, and taking care of myself. I am still diabetic from meds and take so many medicines.
We arrived home and things are going well. The kids have gone back to school and are enjoying it, they are also enjoying seeing friends on weekends. Overall they are adjusting well, sleep is much better and comes easier for them now that they are actually tired and in their own rooms. They started TwaeKon Do yesterday, they loved it. It is alot for me to get them there after school, but Steven meets me after work to help out. Right now we are staying at our friends Natalie and Gene's house, we switched houses. I thought it would be weird, but it really is not. Amazing how you can adapt and live anywhere when you need to. A big thank you to them, there is no way to ever repay you, thank you never seems like enough. Love you guys!
I am exhausted, that really is my only complaint. My body is not ready to do all I am asking it seems. Going back to being a full time Mom, how did I ever do it all before I wonder? I know I will get stronger as the days go on, but it is very frustrating to me to be so weak, I am not used to it. I am listening to my body and napping in the day while they are at school, sit down when my heart is racing, etc. They say it takes a year to get back to yourself, wow I hope that year goes by quick. I feel like the school day goes by so fast and before you know it it is time for pickup already.
In other big and interesting news, I was chosen to be the honoree of the BocaRaton Light the Night Walk in October. I am honored beyond words, this will only happen once in my lifetime. I will attend a few meetings, and speak at kickoff meetings in August, then speak for 1-2 minutes at event. I am really nervous about that, I don't do that well, but I figured I conquered cancer twice, I could do it or try. Our Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is awesome here, Sharon who I keep in touch with is always thinking of me, which I appreciate. So if you are local, when sign ups start, join Team Russo and raise funds and walk with us, without those funds and the research, I would not be here today.
