We finally had some rain this morning, only about 1/4 of an inch though, we could use some more. We were under a severe thunderstorm for a while this morning, but nothing bad in my immediate area. It's still very humid though it's not quite as h... Read more
Hot and humid Sunday

I was up and out of the house by 8:30am to get my groceries today. Took me a little longer today; I didn't shop last week, and last week also seemed to be the week that I ran out of quite a few basic pantry items, such as flour and sugar. I also... Read more
Sunny and hot Saturday

I wanted to wash my car this morning; it looked terrible with the dirt and pollen stuck all over it; we haven't had a hard enough rain in a few weeks to wash it off. I couldn't find my car sponge though, so after loosening all the dirt with a ho... Read more

I finished 2 chemo hats yesterday; I used the same pattern I always do, but with the sunny yellow yarn, I decided they needed a flower on them, so I found some instructions online on how to crochet flowers and made one for each hat. The yellow y... Read more

Wednesday, July 06, 2011      10 comments

Timmy had his geriatric exam today. That's a special exam my vet does on pets starting at 7-8 years of age; besides a physical exam, he also checks blood and urine. I dropped Timmy off at 8am. It takes some time to do the exam so they have you d... Read more
It feels like a Monday
Tuesday, July 05, 2011      8 comments

It feels like a Monday today; maybe because yesterday was a holiday, and it's also a rare Tuesday that I don't have chemo or another doctor appointment. I live just a few miles from where they shoot off the fireworks. I sat and watched them... Read more

Happy July 4th everyone! Too tired from my chemo to do any celebrating, but I am quite content spending a quiet day at home. The fireworks are not far from me, and I can see them from my house. Haven't decided if I'm going to watch them from ins... Read more

I was so tired last night; I did get a few more buttons sewed on some towels, but I got to feeling so sleepy when I went back to my crocheting, I gave up for the night when I was only half done with a towel and went to bed early, at 10pm. A... Read more

Today has been another day where I have had to take it easy because of the fatigue. I'm coping it with it ok, I just have to try not to feel so disappointed in myself and in the fact that I can't do a lot on those days. I have to remember, I jus... Read more

Have you ever heard the expression, "I threw up in my mouth in a little bit"? Well, I didn't actually do that last night but that's kind of what I felt with. I usually get some wicked heartburn a few hours after a chemo, usually early in the eve... Read more
Reached a goal today
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      11 comments

I did my workout after breakfast today, because I knew with today being chemo day, I would not feel like doing it when I came home. It was just a short one today, the standing portion of my beginner Tai Chi DVD, but was enough for me to reach th... Read more
