On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

First week of retirement February 10, 2014

I suppose I had mother nature to thank this week for plunging me headfirst into my “new” role of stay-at-home mom.  With two snowstorms the boys had very little school last week, so it wasn’t exactly a slow transition.  I had been nervous about keeping them busy during the summer, but this was a sneak preview for me.  Considering I hadn’t planned any activities and we couldn’t play outside, go anywhere, or get together with other kids from the neighborhood, I think we did pretty well.  We finished most of the valentine cards for school and also made homemade ice cream using snow and salt.  If you’re interested, the recipe is here, but you’ll need more snow and salt than described.


I did do more cooking that I’ve been able to while I was working.  Of course as I described yesterday, most of my “free time” was spent doing paperwork.  For those of you who might be worried for me, I do have three outings planned with friends this month and will also likely be starting my volunteer position in late Feb or early March.


Our valentine cards. Yes, we made 25 rubber band bracelets, not sure what I was thinking on that one.
