It’s amazing what you can get done when it’s quiet. Tom & the kids went down to the Pioneer Picnic & I have been working on digital paperwork for the majority of the day. Thankfully, my mind is relatively clear enough to do it – which is why I’m doing it now & not putting it off – well, off longer than I have already. I can definitely tell I’m slower though for sure!
When I woke up this morning, I could tell I was a bit nauseous, so before even getting up, I took one of my anti-nausea pills. Then I got a surprise. Just as I was ready to fix something for myself for breakfast, Andrea (my sister) texted me and invited me to come over for breakfast. What a treat! But when I walked out my back door, I was met with 7 free range chickens! Apparently, a piece of the fencing got loose and the girls pushed it out. I thought, “No problem, I’ll just get some food, toss it in the chicken house & they’ll run right in. As I walked back to the house, I heard footsteps behind me on the deck. I was being followed by the Rhode Island Red. I think she would have gone inside if I’d let her! I thwarted her plan for getting inside, but my plan for getting them inside THEIR house worked like a charm! Once the chicken-wrangling was done, I headed over to Andrea’s. Morning menu was pancakes with syrup, peanut butter & bananas and coffee. The best part was that I didn’t have to make it myself. In the afternoon, it got a little bit bad again, but I was able to kinda keep the nausea at bay. Then for dinner I got to try some of Andrea’s Quesadilla Casserole. She said it’s a meal that ALL her kids like – quite an accomplishment! So even though I was a little concerned that it would be too spicy & not settle well with my stomach, I tried it, and it wasn’t too bad, especially with the homemade applesauce – yum!
After dinner, we jumped in her car & got in on the last day of the “Buy $40 worth of product & get $10 off” special at Bath & Body Works in the mall. I think I have enough lotion for the rest of the year, and probably enough for gifts too. 🙂 Andrea & I split it, so we didn’t really go THAT much overboard. 🙂 But I almost forgot – I got the best deal on a sun hat tonight at Claire’s! Regularly $20, it was on sale for $5 – woo hoo! Now I can go into the backyard without worrying about making sure that I am standing in the shade of a bush.
As I recover from chemo, if I blog, you may notice a difference in my writing. At least I think I notice something. So for that reason, I may choose not to blog some of these days. I’m just so thankful that I can feel good enough to do anything! Thank you all for your prayers, I really appreciate them!
