Yes, I'm still here, though a little worse for wear lol!
Spent the last weekend doing absolutely nothing. Not that I didn't want to, mind. I had all these plans: X-mas decorations, maybe a trip to the local arts & crafts festival ( great for x-mas gifts!) some time with friends and family. WRONG! Chemo, in a word SUCKS!
Thanksgiving was ok, we went to my Mom's house. And although we had ham instead of turkey ( because of the "taste" the chemo leaves in my mouth, she thought it would taste better to me- Mom is always right!) We had a good time. Friday came and I could not move. Nope, the "dementors" had sucked out all my energy, and a little of my soul. ( Harry Potter fans will understand ;-)) I literally had to convince myself that is was necessary to get up to use the facilities. UGH! I don't think I've ever felt that drained in all my life. And I stayed that way almost all weekend! I just managed to get 2 loads of laundry done yesterday afternoon, while hubby was watching the " 1st-round-draft-pick-playoff game" which pitted his somewhat-beloved Dolphins against the 49er's.Kim, Robin, I feel for you both. Really, Jon wanted you all to win (* wink wink*) but such is life. He said to tell you all that NEXT year, it will get better.
Today, needless to say, I feel better, though not up to "full-speed". I have to get the Christmas stuff organized, so that hubby can put up the lights when he gets home ( P.S. to Rhonda, HE gets on the roof, I supervise- what am I, Stupid? hehehe!) Then perhaps, if I still have it, we'll start on the inside. I have to find a place to put the tree, the kid's computer is where we used to put it, and I have no idea where to go next. Oh well, sitting on the couch contemplating it will not drain my energies, Huh? And in the meantime I can put tinsel on my gargoyles around the house, and get out my collection of "Kris mooses". And I have to dig out my cards and start that process. I just pray my next treatment doesn't hit me like that again, because Jon's company Christmas party is 3 days after. SIGH!
Off I go to E-Shop! Happy Monday all! Peace, KC
