On August 28th, I celebrated two years post-chemo. Two years of kicking cancers ass to the curb. Two years of suffering through side effects and living life anyway. What have I been doing in those 2 years…well, let’s see.

Obviously, NOT blogging. LOL!

I spent a week at Disneyland & Seaworld for Christmas, riding every ride possible. Twice.

I rolled with the neuropathy punches and migrated my business from photography to graphic design, custom apparel and vinyl decals.

I spent a long weekend on the beach with Bryan in Cali, hiking and kayaking and exploring.

Then I ran a two man half marathon relay with a dear friend. So, basically another 10K.

I’ve also seen several Vegas shows, went to a concert or two, flown over 3800 miles, driven over 30,000 miles, and punched my husband (those military types will get what I’m saying). :) I’m also getting ready to head back to college in January!

All the while, holding down the fort and being the best wife and mom I can be.

Not too shabby for a cancer survivor, I don’t think.

    Not too shabby indeed. I look forward to reading the continuing exploits of the Buchorn crew…running, jumping (off buildings), swimming and enjoying every glorious moment of life.
