Life Goes On....

I have been SO SICK these past few weeks. I can't believe it. I'm about 90% better  now with a cough and an occasional sore throat.  I hope it goes away soon. I hate taking medicine, but it is what is getting me by right now. The kids are still in school. I still have to pick up and drop off the kids from school. I still have to take the boys to swim practice. I still have a new baby that doesn't sleep. Life goes on....
I EVEN had a CANCER SCARE! Can you believe it?! I found a HUGE MASS the size of a baseball between my breasts. I had a xray, an ultrasound, and a CT Scan to find out what it was. It turns out it is calcium build up and I've had it since I was a child. For some reason, it has gotten really big and I am NOW just noticing it. The doctor said there's nothing I can do about it. If I want to remove it, it would be considered a cosmetic procedure and insurance doesn't cover that. I'm just REALLY HAPPY that it's NOTHING serious!!! I was jumping for joy! Thank you GOD!! I am not ready to go yet! Going through this scare has taught me alot about myself. I've also had a small preview of what someone that has been diagnosed with cancer goes through when they are first  diagnosed. My heart goes out to all of you that have gone through it. 
Before I forget! I do have a good friend (Love you Tiffany!) that is in remission from breast cancer and is very active in raising funds for cancer! Here are a few places that she has suggested you can donate to or you can join their events to help raise funds for cancer too! 

Relay For Life: Tiffany Martin's Page (The event had already planned, but donations are always welcomed. Plans are already set for 2015!)

Cast Out Cancer: Fishing for the Cure (May 31st, 2014 in Hemet, Ca) (Facebook Page)

I hope I can get back into a routine soon. I focused on my house last week. After being sick and having a scare everything fell apart. Including my emotions!  Stay tuned because I went to a BLOG CONFERENCE a few weeks ago and I want to tell you ALL ABOUT IT! I even have a pretty cool giveaway for you! 

Any tips of how to get rid of this cold? Have you ever had a cancer scare? How did you deal with it?
