Spontaneous Road Trip
Wow I have been in my truck for almost two days, but no complaints here! The kids and I are on a road trip, and I am pleased to say no dr. apts. for me this week. I actually skipped out on my apt. I had today. They probably wondered where I was, but I had no phone reception to call…oh well.
I knew I wanted to take the kids to Washington, so we packed up in two hours yesterday and hit the road, basically planned the trip in those two hours. I was not sure how it would all pan out, but I have to say I am so glad I did this. The drive through the coast has been beautiful, to be surrounded by all the redwoods and to smell the salt in the air has been so refreshing. It reminds me that there is so much more to this life then cancer and waiting for it to come back.
Although the kids were so excited to go on this adventure, I think I am the person that needed this drive the most. I am getting lost in my thoughts, I am allowing myself to cry and allowing myself to feel so alive and grateful for all of my experiences, the good and the bad. We are in Portland, Or tonight and tomorrow we head to Washington to visit a dear friend of mine Dara.
Let the adventure continue….
