I’m taking the clean slate approach to many things in life these days, so it seemed fitting that I should revamp the look of the blog as well. If you’re reading this in a feed reader, you should click through to the blog just to look at the new layout. Balloons. I love it.
So for the first time since I was diagnosed with cancer, I went on an actual job interview and landed myself a part-time gig. It’s an incredibly flexible job that I can still do mostly from home, but it’s been refreshing to get out and participate in “real” life with new people again. My bosses are great, the work is easy, and the money will at least pay for groceries and gas each week.
Speaking of groceries, fresh meat, fruit, and veg is so dang expensive. But I’m sticking with clean eating as much as I can, and hopefully my body is responding well to the clinical trial. People keep asking me if I feel any differently yet. I don’t. But I don’t feel any worse, so I’ll take it. 🙂
I mailed off another application for financial aid to take care of another big chunk of medical bills today. If that one gets approved, I’ll be a lot closer to being able to breathe again. Hallelujah.
And now I think you’re updated on all things cancer related.
I’ve been on a Facebook break for a couple of weeks, and it’s been glorious. I planned to extend it much longer, but my new employers would like me to take over maintenance of their Facebook page soon so I’ll have to get back to it. But I will continue to exercise my newfound freedom by starting out with a big purge and releasing myself from unrealistic expectations. It’s good to be free.
More thoughts on life and faith and church coming soon.
