Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Weekend Away

I’ve been feeling REALLY bad lately. It just doesn’t seem fair that I have the wonderful opportunity to spend every day and night with my 3 kids, and my dear husband works so hard all day and often doesn’t get home until after 8:00, thus having little or no quality time with our 3 little munchkins.

So I decided this weekend, I would give up my sweet children and let my husband hang out with them, and have their love, affection and more all to himself.

And just so I wouldn’t be tempted to come home and take the kids’ time away from their Daddy, I decided to go really far away….to the Outer Banks. There I’ll be torturing myself by doing a 20 mile training run, and the rest of the day I’ll be so sore and tired, the only thing I’ll be able to do is sit on a beach all day.

It’s a huge sacrifice on my part, but one I’m willing to make for the benefit of my husband.

You go girl! Enjoy every minute of your time away. You deserve it. Praying for safety in traveling and running.

Have fun, and enjoy your long run. Just remember, after that, it's TAPER TIME!! Have a glass of wine (or two, or three) for me....
