I have the best team in the world! They really are awesome for lots of reasons, but today we came together for a “build a salad” day. Everyone signed up to bring an ingredient, and we had the best salad bar I have ever seen! We all enjoyed a healthy lunch together and there was even a banner to congratulate the 2013 healthy team winners. It was very enjoyable, and healthy to boot! We even have enough left over to do it again tomorrow.
Since I was a late-comer to the sign up sheet, all the easy stuff was taken. I wanted to bring a unique item, so I searched for something I could do with quinoa. I found a recipe for Zesty Quinoa Salad, and I thought it was great.
I was looking back at my blog from a year ago and it was this time last year that I went “scarf-less” for the first time. It was a huge step for me, since my hair was still SO short, but I was just so sick of wearing them. Hard to believe it was this short just a year ago.
Although I have to say it hasn’t grown quite the way I’d like. The bangs, which I want to grow fast have not been cut in 15 months and are creeping finally to a decent length. The sides and back, that I don’t want to grow, needs to be cut every couple weeks. I’m not complaining — I always said I’d never have another bad hair day! I guess I’m just happy that I have hair and that it came in pretty much the same as it was pre-chemo.
The days continue to fly by. I’m glad tomorrow’s Friday, but I wish the time would slow down just a bit so I can get caught up. Next week is Easter and I am not ready. It’s also my hubby’s birthday. Um, nope. Not ready for that either. (Sorry, David!) I’m trying to just breathe and take it one thing at a time, but that’s easier said than done. I guess at some point I’ll catch up.
