Hello, friends! Did you all enjoy a nice weekend? Ours turned out to be a very good one :)
Our daughter, Tess, had to cheer at an 'away' football game on Saturday afternoon. It was just over an hour's drive away (school does not provide transportation) so Tess & I made the trip. (That was one of the reasons why I made sure I took it easy on Friday so I was feeling up to going on Saturday :) The weather was absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed watching Tess do her thing cheering on the 7th grade boy's football team. As I mentioned, Tess is one of the cheer captains so she leads out some of the cheers in a rather big, deep voice...it was a real 'proud mom' moment! The team lost (the season isn't going so well for those poor boys) and we all felt so bad that one of the boys fractured his wrist...
Speaking of Tess, could you say a little prayer for that girl again, please? She is home again today with that whole abdominal pain thing. We finally got the results of the bloodwork back and everything was clear. So I'm not sure what is going on but we're going to have to go back to the doctor.
Bobby & I met some friends of ours for dinner on Saturday night. Bobby went to high school with them and they've all remained friends over the years. This couple's daughter attends college about 30 minutes from where we live and they were visiting her on Saturday so we made plans to get together on their way back home. We ended up going to the restaurant where our son, Tyler, works. Our friends were glad to see Tyler and couldn't believe how grown-up he is now! (It IS hard to believe my oldest child will graduate this year!) They even brought me a thoughtful little gift, which I thought was so nice :) We all had a great time together...eating, laughing and catching up on life.
We also got a lot of work done around the house this weekend, unpacking and such. I was overjoyed to pull out my decorating stuff and get some things arranged...I've gotten quite tired of looking at white walls...give me color!!!! I'll have to take some pictures of what I've accomplished so far. My sister is coming over tomorrow to help me again. Let me tell ya, I have a WONDERFUL, CARING, HELPFUL sister...she is a blessing for sure!!!
I had more bloodwork done this morning. UGH, I'm so tired of being poked with needles! It really hurt today. I think the lab technician took 4 vials of blood. She was really sweet; we'd been talking about everything that has happened in my life the last 6 weeks and she just gave me this great big hug and encouraged me! Tomorrow is my next appointment with the oncologist. Betcha I'll find out when I start chemo...
Here's what I decided about my hair. I AM going to get it cut into a shorter, sassy, fringy style right now before chemo starts. I made an appointment to have Bobby's Aunt Pam cut it this Thursday morning. I'm sure there'll be some tears but I know it'll be best in the long run. I'm just not sure I can face losing big clumps of this longer hair I have right now. I'll have to remember to take my camera :)
Hope all of you have a wonderful Monday!
