Twas the night before chemo...
...and all through our house, I was stirring and couldn't go to sleep. I know it doesn't rhyme, but not all stories do. It's only 9:00pm but I can already feel my anxiety level rising. If any of you are up by 5:30am call me. I'm sitting here thinking....oh, great. Now, no one will be able to sleep tonight. We'll all be waiting for the 5:30 alarm to go off. Sorry, but if I have to share this anxiety with someone, who better than all of you. I'm nice that way. Sharing and all.
Tonight, I was asked to be a guest speaker at a "Friendships and Chocolate" gathering in May. I'm suppose to talk about friendships (which I think I have a little knowledge) and what they mean in my life (which is immeasurable). I'm sort of thinking, maybe they could just have me write a blog on it, then they could read it. I'm already a little nervous. That's ok. It will give me something new to worry about. What will I wear? What if my hair looks dumb that day? Will I stutter? Who want's to listen to me blabber, or blubber? I'm going to do it, however. With a smile. And a good attitude. (and maybe even a new outfit)
After work (yes, I worked at my job again today...don't look so surprised) I headed to Angie's house and played with my granddog for a little while. After playing, we went to the plant farm at Smokey Point. It was really nice and we bought some beautiful flowers (Angie didn't need much as her yard already looks beautiful) After a quick stop at Costco, I headed home. On the way to Angie's, I talked to Amy, who was on her way home from qualifying her shooting and defensive tactics for her job today (she has to do this a couple of times a year). She never has to use her gun at work (I hope I didn't jinx her) and she didn't grow up with any guns in the house, but for some reason (I think it may have been the influence from the Dukes of Hazzard) she's a sharpshooter. She did not get this talent from her parents. We're proud of her just the same. Now, be careful.
I have a few photos to share from this weekend. I hope you enjoy them.
Love to you all,
You know the drill...Dream Big!
