Observations – Saturday, February 28, 2014

The snow is beautiful, but dang, what a mess!!

I’m trapped away from home – thank goodness there’s a hotel close to my office. With all the wrecks between work and home yesterday, I chose NOT to make the multi hour trip home and stayed  the night.  I was hoping it would clear this morning, but I just watched a bus slide into a row of cars.  Lovely.

The Pea family owns a herd of teeny hybrid cars that weigh nothing and have low profile, low resistant tires.  *sigh*  I’ve been begging Mr. Pea for years for a more substantial vehicle.  Maybe a weekend separated from my wonderful self will inspire him to consider my request!! :)

Minutes – April 21, 2014

::thankful – Prayers of rejoicing!  He is Risen Indeed!  Cherry Ames has a job! She’ll be working at a local hospital as a critical care nurse.  DirtBike had an amazing progress report with fabulous grades all around!  The Architect won the student council election and will be the student body president next year!  Princess Pea won a Windows tablet!  How COOL is that??

:captured –  Easter Selfie…because I couldn’t remember how to work the timer on the big camera, and Mass started in 20 minutes.

::creative – I finally, finally finished that knitted lace hat. It’s gorgeous, if I do say so.

::Kill All the Cells! –  I’ve been laying low lately, not posting or writing much, mostly because I feel pretty rotten.  I have finished TEN rounds of chemo.  We’ve run upon some complications, namely a lot of fluid buildup around my lungs and heart.  More meds have been prescribed and I’m feeling better, just really, really tired.  I nodded off at mass Sunday morning like a two-year old!  Three more weeks, two more infusions and I’ll be DONE, ready to live a very long rest of my life!

::delicious

  • I cooked dinner last night!  Actually stood in my kitchen, chopped, seasoned and cooked real food:  grilled chicken, tossed veggie salad and saffron rice.
  • We’re winging it the rest of the week.

::fun – Cardboard Boat Regatta, Prom (The Architect!!), maybe some gardening.  Easter Dinner with Friends!  The Architect is to the left with Mr. Pea; Princess Pea just right of me. DirtBike was out in the front driving his RC Car when we snapped the picture.  What wonderful friends we have!

::fashionable –   Whatever is comfortable.  Since everything hurts, I’m doing my best to keep soft, drapey and pretty next to my skin.

Keep the Faith.
