I have not been on the site for a while. It was good to see posts and pictures of those I haven't seen in a while. It has been three years since my cancer and everything is going well. I had to get another job in addition to my teaching position, so I am working 7 days a week. It gets old, but right now it is needed. I am also grateful that I am healthy enough to work. Hello to all, and thanks for helping me through, love to you all.

Congrats on 3 years!!  That is wonderful!  Thank you for stopping in to say hello.  I'm sorry about the second job...it really bothers me that we don't pay our teachers well enough.  I could rant about that for a while, I'm sure you could too.

Three Years!!!  WooHoo!!!  Wonderful news, but I hate that you are working so hard. 

I keep wondering about your name?  We had two standard poodles years ago and about half of my family still does.  Although I love them, I opted for two shelter dogs this time around.  Still love those giant poodles though--such sweet dogs!

So glad to hear from you guys. I hope to pop in more often. Yes, the cancer and the economy is the cause for the second job. I never had horses, that picture was taken right before I was diagnosed on a vacation in Kentucky. However, I do have two standard poodles and one maltese, along with four children. The poodles are extremely smart and we love them.

Advice for surgeries, I had no problems, and I have no pain now. Do what your gut tells you after you gather all the information you can. I also had chemo. I am currently taking tamoxifen and not really having any side effects. There is life after and it is good.

I missed you and continue missing other members of this board. 

Sorry to hear about you having to work all those hours, I sure hope things

will ease up for you. We are living in some tough times. 

3 years, doesn't it feel like eternity? So much happened in so little time.


Happy Anniversary sister,
