Texas...

i finally have home internet again... let's hope that means i actually remember to write on this thing... we have relocated to TX from sunny San Diego, CA... i miss home... but, at the same time, this was a really good choice for our family... the little people seem to really like it here... they miss so cal too, but more bc of the people than anything... it is hard to stay strong for them when they cry bc they miss things, especially when sometimes i just wanna cry with them... i just keep reminding myself this is for the greater good... last year in october i participated in the AIM at Melanoma walk in escondido, CA... we really enjoyed it. this year i am in TX- the walk closest to me is on may 3rd... so again i signed us up... i'm not sure how my fundraising will go since i don't really know anyone here yet... but i didn't want to skip a year either... wish me luck... i haven't been to a dr since leaving san diego... i know, not good... but it's been nice to kinda get a break. my hubby is worried bc one of my many scars is getting some weird pigmentation... and we never got answers to what caused my breathing issues, or PET scan to light up last time... i am finding myself using that dreaded inhaler i hate more and more often... i am hoping its just bc of the weather change and allergies... bc in san diego it was almost always sunny & mild... not the case here... i am learning that in TX the temperature high doesn't mean it's during the daytime... and the lows aren't always at night... making new friends when you move is never easy... fortunately, the kids haven't been having too hard a time. even tho princess tells me "i only have 7 friends here... in CA i had hundreds!" i, on the other hand, have been having a harder time than usual... i've moved alot in my life... but that was all before melanoma... before i cared if anyone was or wasn't a sun worshipper... before, when i could look at strangers and not just see their moles... or sunburns/tans... i am just hoping the walk will introduce me to some new friends... that, unfortunately, understand... well, i just wanted to post a quick update... and plan to be doing so more often...
