This week actually felt like a "normal" week for me, whatever normal is anymore.  Remember before cancer when I use to only work 2-3 shifts a week and then did normal things the rest of the week?  Well this week felt like one of those weeks.  I forgot how nice normal is.

Of course my days off have been spent doing normal stuff like going to the supermarket, 4 loads of laundry in one day, cooking dinner, eating popsicles on hot days (oh wait that's everyday), finally unpacking my suit case (only to get to repack it again in 1 week!!!), changing sheets, washing dishes, a Tj Maxx/Homegoods run, going to the dentist, reading a book in the middle of the afternoon and oh yes, spending all afternoon at the pool with my friends.

I like normal.  I miss normal. I'm ready for normal to return for good.

Dear Cancer,

Please go away so I can get back to my normal life.

I've been patient with you long enough (like a very long 3 years),

Thank You,


PS.  My nurse's and I are so ready for the Rio Olympics.  I can't wait watch our US athletes over the next few weeks.  Go USA!  Looking at this picture makes me so happy because my hair is finally almost the length it was 3 years ago when I lost it, as you can see in my blog header picture which was taken just a few days before my diagnosis.


  1. You (and your hair) look awesome, Terah!

    1. Ah thanks you are so sweet! I'm finally loving my hair. I missed it.

  2. Normal one of my favorite words for sure!! I'll pray for normal for you!!
