Minutes – May 12, 2014

::thankful – for today!  We’re getting some rain, and it was a beautiful weekend.  I’m tired today, but in very good way.

Totally and utterly thankful that Cherry Ames graduated from college!  I was totally unprepared for the complete rush of pride – I was grinning all weekend.  Look!  She’s officially a nurse!


Thankful for a weekend spent embraced by friends and family!  Thankful that the weekend involved lots of delicious food, and that super duper thankful for the extra time off from chemo.  I had an appetite and could taste every bite…I made a heroic attempt to make up for past sixteen weeks of nausea and bland.

Thankful that The Architect was promoted to Head Lifeguard!!  I’m so proud of him!

::captured –  Picture of me and Princess Pea! (And Mr. Pea reflected in my glasses.  He took the picture.)


No pictures of the boys…they spent a great deal of time dodging all the camera lenses this weekend.


::Kill All the Cells! –  I feel 10,000% better!! Let’s hear it for the miracle of antibiotics, albuterol and steroids!!  I am still dumbfounded that I walked around with pneumonia for more than a month and didn’t even know it.

Last round of chemo starts this Thursday.  Two more visits to the Infusion Lab and I’ll be FINISHED!!!


  • Lasagna, Tossed Salad
  • Swedish Meatballs, Mashed Potatoes and Peas
  • Grilled Ginger Orange Salmon, Broccoli Salad
  • Shrimp Tacos, Black Beans
  • Burgers, Baked Beans
  • Turkey Paninis, Fruit Salad, Raw Veggies
  • Homemade Veggie Pizza, Spinach Salad

::fashionable –   I’m completely vertical and back at work this week…grey hounds-tooth pencil skirt, white shell, black cardigan, purple scarf, and new summer shoes with some bling. 2014.05.12 Shoes

::praying for – Donna and Dan, for strength and grace in the coming days; Tom and Judy, as they care for aging parents;  friends with special intentions.

Keep the Faith.
