It’s Spring Break. I’m giving myself 7 days to NOT talk about cancer. I still feel like a Chemosapien with numb fingers and toes, metal mouth and the prospect of losing fingernails. But this week, I’m going to forget about all that and focus on the kids. Weird Cancer Guy is like an obnoxious dude at a party who talks way too loud, double-dips and takes over the entire room. Spring Break is like the sexy lifeguard who works as a bouncer on weekends. Spring Break is throwing Weird Cancer Guy out for the week! When I get back, it will be pre-op appointment land. For now, Candyland and epic games of dodge ball. I’m going to remember what it’s like to be a parent; the kids, I hope, will regain being kids again.

THREE POSITIVES:

1- Getting to be with the kids and Brian for a full week sans school and work.

2- Allowing myself to take a break.

3- Finally feeling good enough to mess with the kids.
