Hello September!

 When you live in the tropics, it's white clothes all year round.  Another way to survive the tropical heat and humidity is to head to a cool place like the McAllen Public Library.  I spend hours here and always end up doing a little part time translating.   For some reason people think I work here, I wish!
 Can't leave the house without my sunnies, the sun is strong and bright down here. 
 Thanks to my friend Sarah I am reading this Body for Life and have started kick started my fitness routine.  I am doing a little bit of everything, watching portions, informing myself about nutrition but more than anything EXERCISING!  Please hold me to it,  I must stay focused and committed!
This is my first fall not teaching and it is a little bittersweet.   Teaching has been a huge part of my life.  I have either been a student or a teacher.  However I am excited to see what the new season will bring for me career wise.  We've moved twice in one year so I am used to change.  And change is good.

This summer was awesome, I was able to take care of some personal business.  I had two tumors removed from my throat and I am cancer free.  My blog is a place where I hope to inspire you with my travels and beach life.  But I wanted to share this with you because if there is a medical test you need to do, do it!  It feels so good to close this scary chapter of my life.  I had cancer as a child and was afraid it would reoccur, thankfully my tumors were benign and I can move forward with my life. Thanks for reading and for coming along on all of our adventures.
Wishing you a wonderful and healthy start to the new season!

My beautiful friend! You are so pretty, and I LOVE that 2nd photo of you especially. You are beautiful inside and out, always so encouraging to me, and upbeat. I am so thankful that your health scares are behind you and that a new season is upon us all. You are right, change is good, and fall is GOOD! I'm sure it's so bittersweet for you not to be in the classroom this time of year, but I'm excited for you and for what your future holds. Life is always full of twists and turns. I hope and pray it's all good for you.

Thanks for your sweet comment. I am having a good day so far. A few tears for me, none for Boyd. :) That is a good thing. I'm ready to pick him up at 2 pm, and see what all he has to tell me. Thanks again for all of your well wishes and encouragement.

Oh Laura you scared me! So happy your tumours were benign.
Keep up the exercise campaign. It's sometimes hard to fit it in but I always feel so much better when I do it.

That is wonderful news - it is so good to be on the other side of it all - looking to a happy, positive future. Something like that certainly makes you appreciate life!
