It happened... I'm back

It started this past week.  I went to the Pacific Northwest Blogger meet-up with Jes and Tegan Friday night.  And I didn't run out of energy.

And then Saturday was a super productive day as I mentioned before.

Sunday we got up early and went to breakfast, then I went to the coffeshop while Phil went fishing, and to Danielle's house to make some freezer jam.  I got home and cleaned the bathroom, started laundry and made a salad.

Monday night I went to the gym and attempted running again.  It wasn't pretty and it was harder than it should be.  But I was able to walk/run 4 miles in an hour, which isn't all that bad considering how little I have moved since my half-marathon last October.

Then I began looking at races to sign up for.  And I realized I wanted to sign up for not one, not two, but THREE different races this fall (2 half-marathons and a 7 mile trail run).

That's when it hit me... I'm back.

Not quite the same.  The neck scar comes with a little bit of baggage.  And I'm sure there will be times when the thyroid hormones and possibility of cancer come back send me into an anxious fit.  But for the most part, I'm me again.

My blog numbers have been a little low lately.  It's probably because of the puppies dying.  Let's be honest, nobody wants to hear about puppies dying.  Not to mention that that kind of sent me into a debbie-downer funk for a little while.  But I'm feeling better!  And I am thankful for those of you who stuck around during my cancer-infertility-dead puppy pity party.

I promise we will get to the happier side of life, full of funny stories and awkward moments (I am never short of those).

So stay tuned people!


  1. Welcome back, Mrs Janney!

    It sounds like you are ready to tackle some new and exciting challenges ... gosh 3 runs! I signed up for 1 half marathon and am freaking out!

    Can't wait to hear more funny/ awkward stories, although I always read your blog and love every single post:)

    Happy hump day!

  2. hey girl, life gives us lemons and sometimes we have to stare at them a bit before we remember to squeeze those damn things, add some sugar and some vodka and keep on livin'! ;) i'm really happy for you that you are feeling "back"!

  3. did you check out the blogger photos yet?? i know what'll bring you even MORE back. the one picture of us checking each other's teeth.

  4. We all need our time to feel low when things are miserable... and to express it. If people don 't understand, then they don't. This is your blog though and your outlet, so you should be able to be as weepy as you want to be when you want to be. That being said, I'm so happy for you that you feel more like "you" than you have for awhile. No one is ever the same, whether they go through a huge life-changing event or they just get older, but getting back into things that make you happy and feel good is always a great thing :) You may not be exactly the same as you were, but you will be a new and improved version of that woman.

  5. Huzzah for being back in the groove!! What races are you signing up for?! I'm dragging my rear to the gym tonight for my first run in a while...I'll let you know how it goes! ;)

  6. Glad you're feeling back to your "old" self :) What a blessing from God! And how awesome about signing up for 3 runs!!! That's great :) :)

  7. Yay for being your old self again!!

  8. Happy to hear you are feeling energetic again. And to take on 3 runs? You crazy! But go for it, for all of us lazies!!!

  9. YAY! This is awesome :D
    Also, I hope you don't mind me posting a link to someone elses' blog here, but when I read your post, it made me think of this one:

  10. Welcome back! 3 races this fall... that's a lot, but you can do it!
