Breast cancer awareness month

As a Breast cancer survivor of 9yrs, I find I have different reactions to Breast cancer awareness month even on a day to day basis. 

Sometimes I resent the reminder that 9yrs ago this month I was recovering from a mastectomy & fretting over starting chemotherapy. That our first wedding anniversary & my 40th birthday was over-shadowed by my recovery.

Other times I’m grateful & humble I’ve made it 9yrs past some of the worst days of my life. 

Mostly I wish for every awareness campaign there were equal amounts of energy put towards finding a cure.

17Mar21 Earlier in the week my kids were talking about a cable spool that their Dad had that had been covered in shag carpeting and had a 'pleather' top. It made for a great plant stand. While getting the mail I noticed the giant cable spool across the road and suggested (jokingly) my kids find one like it to use as a yard ornament. #2021pad #muchlatergram #cablespool #70sshagcarpet
24Apr21 A feather stuck to my wall?? No, it's filler that must have dripped when a friend was filling in some gaps in my gym ceiling. It's artistic but should probably be popped off and I dunno, sanded? #2021pad #gymart #stuffhappens #artfromabove
04Mar21  This weeks theme on Challenge Friday was ‘Blue’. So here are some blue towels and other things as well as a cute 3 legged kitty sunning himself on the step.  #cf21 #2021pad #blue #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram #laundry #towels
04Mar21  This is a blue tablet holder thing for use on a couch or bed. It’s pretty useless.  I had hoped it would be usable but it’s not.  What it does have is pockets for storage of things.  Not that I can think of anything to store in the pockets.  Anyway, it’s blue.  #cf21 #blue #tabletholder
06Mar21  And once again, Erik is the only one noticing me.  But hey, I can’t compete with food.  And mine is on the table just the other side of Shaun.  I better sit down and get to it!  March 2022 Lunch Group.  #lunchgroup
08Apr21 Portrait of Noble. This is the nicest photo of Noble, and probably the best photo I've ever taken. I was experimenting with the camera on my phone and trying out various settings. This was portrait mode. My poor Noble, he's not quite as spry as he was but open a can and he's there before my next breath. He just picks and chooses what he goes fast for, and what can wait. I could learn a lot from him. #2021pad #latergram #portraitmode #catsofinstagram #lovemykitty
