August 19, 2017 Saturday
I slept so well last night and woke up so very rested. Don’t know why but it sure was nice. I still sound like a frog but my throat does not hurt anymore and I’m not coughing as much. However, I have felt fairly tired today but I accomplished a lot with a lot of resting in between.
Basically, I prepared the house for the kids and grandkids to visit. That involved moving a lot of sewing stuff out of the main parts of the house and just kind of kid proofing the house. I “let” Frank and Rachel make up all their beds and cover the windows of Coen’s room and do other stuff like that. I know they appreciated that!! I did go to Kroger and get more and different food that I don’t usually have and then I went to Willy’s Burger Shack for lunch and dinner meals – they love that place when they visit. It is awfully good food, but there sure is a lot of it.
I kept the kids for a while when Frank and Rachel ran some errands and then my yard man came to work a while and brought his two kids so all the kids ended up playing inside the house. I was surprised to find out it is easier on me when four kids play than when just the usual two play – I guess it was the new friend honeymoon time but they were very involved with each other and I got a rest.
Somehow when more people are around, lots more things are going on. Funny how that works, but I really enjoy having all this activity here. You may notice the blog is happening earlier tonight cause I’m going to bed earlier than usual – I’m a little tired. That’s probably mostly because of the chemo and Neulasta, but maybe not. My tastebuds are definitely different, but I can drink the lemonade some but nothing tastes like it usually does. I’m very tired of hot flashes but they will probably end soon since I took my last steroid pills last night. I certainly hope so anyway.
I expect tomorrow will be another busy day and I am really looking forward to it. It should be fun even though I have no idea what we will be doing yet.
