I've missed you all

What a tangled, busy life I've lived this past week. I worked everyday (got a bunch of work done and enjoyed myself this time...I loved being there), worked on Pam's surprise party that we had last night (which I might add was a ton of fun...and she was very surprised...Angie, Jake and Rick came after watching cousin Ally at Snohomish District Basketball game so they got in on the fun too!), I've been working on a secret project for Amy and Angie for their birthday that is coming up on Wednesday, and Jake came home for the weekend. Amy comes home tonight from Puerto Rico... And it's the Oscars tonight so all our work has to be done by 5:00

Today is a day of rest and recoup since we start the chemo process again tomorrow. I didn't wake up until 9:30 (and that's because I heard the phone ring) We've been so lucky to this point. Rick will have one more chemo treatment the week of March 12th, then on the 19th we both have CT scans. On the 20th we have appointments to hear the results. I have a good feeling that will be a great day :)

Just a little F.Y.I. ~ I'm doing better now. I'm not the emotional wreck I was a couple of weeks ago. As a matter of fact, I think it was healing for me to have a day like that. I don't want to have one again anytime soon, but if I need one...I'll take it.

I'm sitting here writing my blog and listening to my boys talking. Rick is a little bit of a sock addict and he has more packages of unopened socks than anyone I know. He and Jake are sorting through this "extra" socks and discovered some of the most hideous colored socks ever. I can't believe we bought him teal colored dress socks, or bright royal blue ones. Rick said he wants me to buy him some shirts to match the socks...I said "put them in the Goodwill bag". Jake doesn't think anyone at the Goodwill would buy them. I don't remember smiling and laughing so much over socks. It feels good.

I'd better get going so I can work on my birthday surprise for Amy and Ang.

Love you more than all the new socks in Rick's drawers and in our closet (and in the Goodwill bag).

Dream Big,

So nice to see you today! I read down a bit and caught up on your blog. I am glad to hear you and Rick are both feeling okay, and glad you had a chance to "release" last week. Sometimes purging our feelings is necessary. Your spirit still amazes me!

I do think you need to endulge and buy Rick (and you!) that luxurious 7-layer bedding so you both can have many hours of peaceful, restorative sleep every night! I am so glad you are going to be my first "party" that I get to bumble through! It will be fun! And...the robe (and flask) await you!

Love you more than a 600 thread count!


PS. Don't look at the time. I can't sleep! I need the bed, too!
