Life is too short

To have been unhappy for only 4 more weeks of chemistry would have been 4 too many. I was reminded of that again this weekend when I learned Eleanor passed away at the end of June-- you can read her obit here. Ever since I can remember she was a part of my Wellfleet experience. Back in the day Gram rented out many a room to people who worked summers for her. I can't remember the last time I saw Eleanor, it is possible it may have been after my Grams funeral mass. But twin sis saw her just a few weeks back-- if there was any hint of the pancreatic cancer she didn't know. Again-- life is too short to be unhappy.

I am so glad I dropped that class. I am still have a wee bit of anxiety over it so I engaged in some retail therapy today. Bike accessories-- a cage and water bottle, front and back lights. A fitness skort from LL Bean that I love and a hat for outdoor use. (Sometimes shades bug me.) Lastly I bought a pair of city shoes. Good for bike riding and walking-- flip flops are the devil. I prefer my toes be protected and my knee screams out for support.

So now what to do with all this free time? Exercise, look for a job and enjoy every moment to its fullest.

And most likely head down to Welfleet on Thursday for Eleanor's memorial service at the drive in. She'll be missed.

I admire you for even *attempting* the chemistry class, not to mention on a summer schedule.

And those Keen shoes? Too cute for words.
