Is 'normalcy' even a word? None the less, I've had signs of it.
I have nose hair. Yes, who thought this would ever be blog-worthy. This was the first hair on my body to go once I started chemo. Never thought I'd miss it, but when your nose drips, hair slows it down. Nothin' like a carrying around tissue to make you feel like an old lady. I also noticed not all my clothes had pockets to carry the tissue and I refused to fold it up my sleeve-SO old lady. I also had nose bleeds. Which of course without hair can't 'web' into a good blood bugger. #details And... I also had sinus congestion. [Note these symptoms have all passed they were so 3 months ago ;).] ps. I used a nasal sinus rinse to deal with these side effects. #grossbutworks
I'm complaining. The kids stuff strewn about the house is bothering me again. The Beck Rally and Sarah Palin's comments annoy me. I'm tweeting a bit more. I nagged my husband about video games.
I got up and made coffee two days in a row.
I read the Sunday paper.
I got out of bed before 9am. Before I would wake up early and be up + at 'em... After a few cancer months I learned to just stay in bed and 'rest' even if I didn't fall back to sleep.
I'm wearing mascara. Because I have short lil' lashes that have made their way home.
I plucked a few stray eyebrow hairs. It wasn't too long ago that they were abandoning me.
I'm being a bit sassy and silly with my family.
I'm thinking about organizing again.
It seems so simple and trivial but it's always been the lil' things that drive me crazy or make me smile. I've added nose hair to that list.
