Today has been a good day! I'm VERY tired, but that I can handle! I didn't sleep very well, but about 3am I started thinking I could probably have cold cereal for breakfast, so that's what I had, and it was fine--except of course the taste isn't all there yet. I also had a cold glass of oj! I was so happy I was giddy! I didn't take any anti-nausea meds either. I was a little queasy still, but it wasn't any worse than I'd been feeling with the meds, so I decided to try and go without. Of course I brought some to work with me, just in case, but I've been fine without them! See? What a good day!
Work was good too. Being outside for an hour is really good for me. I think I'm supposed to be wearing sunscreen tho--I'll have to work on that! I hope my time outside is healthy, and not "overdoing" it. It makes me feel like I'm helping my immune system, and its only an hour, then I can nap when I get home, if needed. I have my pump bottle of hand cleaner in the lunchroom, and use it often. Trying to be careful not to get sick from the kiddos!
I'm drinking a nice glass of water with a little ice in it now, and the only weird sensation is when I swallow it the back of my throat feels like something is brushing against it, like there is something chunky in the water. I thought I was drinking oj with pulp in this morning, then realized that Alyssa likes no pulp, so that's what we buy.
I finished my Fed. taxes yesterday am, and the state today--talk about last minute, huh? I usually have them done by early Feb.! I think I still have to do a FAFSA for Alyssa's college too.
Speaking of her! I can't wait to hear from her! She's on the plane right now flying to Seattle! She may be 21, but you never stop worrying! It was strange coming home to a completely empty house--mom is up north, and Alyssa gone. Of course, Shonna will be coming thru the door soon, and it that will take care of the quiet! :-))) (But I love it!)
Last night I was so proud of myself--I finally washed up all the pots and pans in the sink, made supper, and even cleaned the pans after supper (usually I let them soak!). I did it all in a fog, but I got it done!
My wonderful sister offered to make us some meals occasionally during my chemo days, and as much as I hate asking people for help, I think I'll accept! Its not like I don't have food in the house, so no one is going to starve, but I feel guilty when Rich eats cereal for supper! (Not that he really minds!) and I'd be more likely to eat if something was in front of me--otherwise I'm too tired to care!
Well, gonna finish going thru my mail--then its off to bed for a nap! I'll have to think of something for supper (or not!).
Take care everyone!!
