Go with the Flow

My body wants two naps a day and then to bed early. I'll let it have it's way with me. No need to fight it.

Tonight is a city council committee meeting and my backup for taking the minutes isn't available. I will see how I feel later this afternoon and if I can go in. Why do we let guilt talk loudly in our lives?

My brain and fingers aren't working too well so they ought to be interesting minutes if I do go in. Luckily the meeting is recorded so I can refer to this for questions. We'll see. I'll have to assess my driving skills as well :-).

At the last treatment, the Onc Nurses said I needed to do or buy something to celebrate completing chemo. I told them we purchased a new washer and dryer - the front loading style - and I was excited about that. They thought it should be something more personal. I had to chuckle - we'll I'm paying for the cancer treatment, isn't that enough?

There is something that I have wanted to do for the past 35 years and it looks like it might happen in 2009! I've always wanted to go to Nebraska in late Spring to revisit my grandparent's home and small town, as well as do some genealogy. Vic agreed! I am so excited about this . . . it is a goal that would keep me going for awhile.

Thank you for your continued support of emails, phone calls and comments on this blog. God bless you all!

  1. Dear Renee - you absolutely should go to Hastings! Make sure you look for the Kool-aid sign, Hastings is the birthplace of Kool-aid! Did you know that? Also, when we were there only the main streets were paved, we drove on gravel roads a lot, it was a big surprise to me!

    I hope you get to go to Nebraska and I hope you are feeling better today.

    Love Sandy
