We’re going to visit California tomorrow and I am feeling super excited about it.
Prior to my cancer diagnosis, we were thinking of possibly moving there. But now it has become difficult for me to move anywhere because I am afraid to switch medical care. I am aware there are great doctors everywhere, but I think I am having a “mama’s little girl” issue…you know, once you are stuck with an Oncologist, it’s hard to suddenly make a switch. It’s not as easy as switching your PCP.
I feel so wonderful when I am in California—something about the air. The energy. I like the people, the food, and the scenery. There’s just too much to explore and I am not done yet.
We love the desert so we will be spending some time in Joshua Tree National Park.
They say we must leave our worries behind when we travel so this is what I am planning on doing. At least try to. Except for my pets, I’ll definitely be thinking of them because this is what “mothers” do. No, they won’t be left alone. I have a wonderful friend who will be staying at my place with them, and luckily, they love him.
One day I’ll introduce you to my pets.
I need this time off so badly.
If I don’t respond to you right away, it’s because I’ll be hiking up a mountain with no access to the internet. I hope I don’t come in contact with a rattlesnake like I once did.
I shall return. On May 14.
