recuperating

We'd like a house just outside of town someday.  I saw a dark wood floor I loved once, I'd like that in the dining room, along with lots of windows.

I'd like to get a book published someday and maybe a song and a children's book and a screenplay . . .  
I've gotten so many lovely notes and cards (and flowers!  Thank you, Harold and Lori) the last couple of weeks.  Cards and letters are highly underrated.  I think I'll start writing them more often.
I've had a few low moments lately, but no matter how low they were, Jake could always make me grin.  He's the sunshiniest creature alive, and I'm so lucky to belong to him.

At my niece's birthday party last weekend I let them paint my hair.  Hair painting:  Also highly underrated.  

Did I mention it wasn't cancer?

I need some new shoes and jeans.  I want to start doing my Pilates again.  I have yet to open April's issue of InStyle.  I have a stack of must-reads and tons more on the list.  I hope to actually put out flowers this spring - Grandma says May Day is a good time.  And don't I have the manuscript for a novel half begun somewhere?

Hello, Life.  I'm back.

Nice to see ya!

I considered begging for a new healthy post the same way I begged for the Heath Ledger post, but I knew you'd show up sooner or later! : )

I've been checking your blog every day, wondering how you're doing. When I saw your post this morning it made me smile! Great way to start the day!

It happens to everyone, no matter the circumstances, cancer, death of a loved one. I knew you'd be back, and I am SOOOOOOOOO glad to see you

You wrote: "I'd like to get a book published someday and maybe a song and a children's book and a screenplay . . ." Looks like we have some similar goals. I'd like to do all those things too.

So on the count of three let's scream at top of our lungs: Si, se puedo!!! a.k.a Yes, we can!!!

Welcome back.

I'm so glad to reconnect with you; to know you're well and that a book is in the making. Life is so much fun! I'm thankful just to be alive every day. Every day is my favorite day of the week!!
