oh bother... as pooh would say. i think it's pooh, certainly not tigger [which i'm usually so much more tigger than pooh and certainly never eore]
but my point being.... i'm here. i just haven't felt like writing. of course i have plenty to say and have many a a'mind-blog [that simply means i've written the blog post in my mind, typically at 4am as i'm laying in bed telling myself to go back to sleep- and lately i've been listening to myself hence the slow down in blog posts. whew... did i even pause during that thought. AND no it's not the 'roids...which seem to have dissipated into thin air. #cursethemiWANTthemback
thoughts... events... what i should have been writing about this past week.
mother's day... got a cute.cute.cute email from my daughter's teacher. after i see her gift i may just share the details with you!
and... I'm hoping to do a whole post on mother's day- because i have thoughts, thoughts that involve how i've 'matured' over the past 10 of these.
friends... old, new, and those in the making. i had the pleasure of getting to know helen better- she's a survivor, the host of AMNW, and gave me some insight as to what's coming ahead treatment wise. but most importantly it was just nice to chat + have a cup of coffee together.
more of friends... i'm seriously WELl taken care of. From meals to rides to a simple email or message- they are all so appreciated. i actually did some produce shopping and cooked a bit myself this week. shhhh, don't tell my girlfriends i swear they'll think i've gone mad.
hair- it's thin. waaaay thin. have i ever mentioned that i hide the 'evidence'. i wipe out the bathroom sink + the shower stall so my poor husband doesn't have to see the mounting load of evidence that soon i will be bald. #notthathehasn'tnoticed not sure if i ever mentioned the 'ping! ping! ping!' which is what i think my hair is doing/saying as it jumps ship. haven't noticed it quite as much this week- maybe it's taking a new quieter approach so as not to freak me out, or quite possibly to just keep me on my toes, because there is no normal lately.
sleep- i'm doing more of it. i seem to have hit the balance between the steroid meds + the chemo. #tippedthescalesnolongeraspaz i'm not up all hours, i've taken sleeping pills on nights where i may need it [this is a big deal for me, i'm not really a pill-popper, but in the name of sleep- i'm game.
family... got to spend time with my parents and 2 of my closest friends, sleep in my old bed, check out my thinning hair in the same mirror i got ready for prom in + just about every other major 'get ready' event.
events... worked on the Camas GNO event... www.facebook.com/camasGNO designed totes [SUPER CUTE] and was thrilled so many fabulous sponsors have hopped on board. Cascadia Women's Clinic, Jockey, Agave Jean Company and more!
Of course all these little ramblings are posts within themselves. Even the moment my daughter put on my wig and proclaimed she was "Betty McFetty"...is a great post.
But i've rambled myself into midnight. No sleeping pills needed.
