If you are wondering......

I made it through 6 months of chemotherapy. The first lasted 2 months and the second lasted 4 months. (didn't mean to imply that you couldn't count.....ha ha). I finished right at Christmas 2011...not what I ask Santa for that's for sure. I had my expanders taken out and itty bitty implants put in March of this year. Little disappointed about the size but so thankful to be alive. I had a couple more surgeries after that and a few more to go. I have yet to be able to go back to work but have been denied temporary disability. I reapplied a couple weeks ago. We have used up all the donation money in the last year so things are looking pretty bad right now. Our lights have been turned off once, the phones are off and the Internet will be the next to go. But at least we are healthy and happy and all together.(except for my oldest Sapphire...she got her own apartment...doing good so far) I took up crafting to try and make some extra money. I made a little for about a month until the store i was selling my hug/love boxes at said I couldn't do it anymore.

                     Here are the hug/love boxes

They come with a poem attached explaining what's inside the box. I have tried selling these and other things I have made on etsy.com/simplysarah2012 and on zibbet.com/simplysarah. No luck yet but I am not giving up. I have been watching videos online about crafting and even joined a crafting group (Creating the Crafty Life). I am hoping to make some friends and learn some things. Cancer has turned out to be a very lonely disease. I still hide my emotions very well. I cover them with laughter and jokes. I can honestly say if it weren't for my kids, sisters, boyfriend, mom, and my 2 chemo angels. I never would have made it through the last year. They all tell me they wouldn't be able to handle everything I have endured. So I must be one tough cookie. Oh let me tell you....my hair is finally growing back. It isn't long enough to lay down so it sticks out everywhere. I'm just thankful that it's growing. I still have a problem with how I look, but my kids think I'm beautiful that's all that counts. I have not been able to talk to my cousins in months(you know who you are) so if ya'll read this......I love all of you very much and I hope to talk to you soon.

So anyway...to any new followers....thank you for following. Leave comments or even email me at simplysarah@centurylink.net. I'll be able to respond for a little while longer...lol.
