I have graduated from my 28-day intense treatment program. Hallelujah! I have transitioned into a three day per week, 1.5 hours per day program. I feel very excited about the next phase of my treatment. I learned so much in the last month, about myself and about my disease. I am very blessed that I was able to attend this great program, at this time. The teachers/therapists were awesome! The other people that were in the group - we all grew so close to each other. Graduation was emotional for most of us. Some of them I will be seeing in the morning program so that will be nice. If any of you have questions regarding specifics about the kind of program I was in and where it was, please feel free to send me a private email and I am more than willing to share the information with you.
I am back on the schedule at REI, beginning Saturday. I am SO looking forward to going back to work. I miss the people there - we are are like a little family.
My nieces that live in Rocklin were visiting my Mom over the weekend so I picked them up on Saturday afternoon and took them out for a hike. Alexa is 18 and Alena is 17. They are my oldest brother's girls. He is 6'6" tall and his wife is 5'11". This makes for some very tall kids!

This was nice to see, the day before Easter.
Saturday night, after going to church, Sara came over and we decorated eggs - 18 of them! It was fun. Neither of us could remember the last time we decorated eggs together.
Sara, Sterling, and Loren came over on Easter and I made egg salad sandwiches for everyone. (I have a feeling I'm going to be eating those for a few more days.) Then we all went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D. I am pretty sure I've never seen a 3D movie in a theater. It was pretty cool! I was so happy to spend the day with my little family. They are so special to me. ;)
Today was the first time in 28 days that I didn't have to wake up by an alarm clock. I slept until almost 11:00! It was nice to just keep rolling over and going back to sleep. Keith had the day off so we picked up Bella and took the dogs to Sunol for a nice hike, after the rain stopped. I forgot my camera so these were taken with my phone. First time I've forgotten my camera, I couldn't believe it.
