I really enjoyed being back at work yesterday--but boy was I tired! My feet hurt really bad by the end of the day. I was surprised how tired I was. My schedule has changed completely, so that was a bit of a challenge, but I like challenges! Change is good for me--helps me grow. I loved the hugs I got from the kids! (Can you believe some schools ban touching of any kind? The kids really are the ones that suffer in that situation!) I was surprised how many kids noticed I had been gone!
I was like a zombie after work. Thankfully mom made a beef stew for supper--I probably wouldn't have made anything! Then we had to be at Alyssa's cheer squad's (she's the coach) fundraiser show at 6, then Shonna's choir concert at 8! Both events were very nice, and I'm glad I went! Alyssa and the other 2 coaches even came on stage and did a few cheer moves! Fun! My body ached so much that I came home and took 2 Tylenol and went to bed!
I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, but I am getting nervous about chemo on Wed. Thanks Carol and Michelle for your comments and encouragement!! It really helps alot to hear from others who have gone thru the same thing I am--and have come out on the other side just fine!!
Speaking of Wednesday--I've talked Shonna into auditioning for "The Gospel Dream". Its an American Idol type show on the Gospel Music Channel. The auditions are on Wed. at Club 3 Degrees in Minneapolis (its a Christian music club). It will be very hard to get in, because the age ranges from 16 to 40, and out of all the cities they go to only 30-35 will be chosen. But I think it will be good auditioning experience for her. And who knows? She's certainly a good enough singer! So, while I'm getting my first chemo treatment, she'll be auditioning--pray for us both!
Well, I better finish getting ready for work!
Love and blessings!
