Reading: The Quilter’s Legacy by Jennifer Chiaverini. I think I read half this book before it had to go back as it’s oddly familiar so hopefully I’ll finish it this week.
Loving: The fact that my PET scan last week was clear. Still hasn’t totally sunk in, partially because I still have three more treatments to go, partially because it’s all been such a blur but I do have an immense sense of relief over this, partially because I feel crummy from treatment last week but it’s clear! Best news ever.
Feeling: So-so. As I said above, totally relieved for the good news I got at the doc but also dealing with side effects from Treatment Three, namely just feeling kind of crummy. My brain is ready to do all the things but my body isn’t letting me do all I want yet. It will come in time, I know, just frustrating. Also it’s a little hard because some people seem to think I’m “ok,” now that I got the good news but I’m still dealing with immuno/chemo and all that means until end of November. Balancing expectations and thoughts of others is challenging.
Thinking: About what’s next for me. Lots of good things ahead, just need to pick my next goal/project/ambition and get after it.
Anticipating: Celebrating five years of marriage to the Hubs this Friday. We have a getaway planned and it couldn’t come at a better time. The time surely does fly by, doesn’t it?
Watching: Depends on the day! Lately it’s been Will & Grace on Hulu because it’s so light and fun. If I want something more serious, I’ll switch to Once Upon A Time on Netflix.
Working: On lots of things around the house, cleaning up piles, decluttering, organizing, and helping the Hubs with some of the last of our new door home project.
Grateful: Friends. Family. Healthcare. Docs who know what they are doing. Prayers. My tribe. Healthy news. The ability to have a flexible schedule so I can work from home when I don’t feel up to going to the office.
Listening: at the time I’m writing this, sounds of the laundry, the sprinkler hitting the pavement outside and birds. Also, there is a really annoying chirp from someone’s smoke/fire detector nearby and it’s making me crazy. It is not in our house but seems to be coming from the house over the hill from us. So weird.
Wishing: Right now, that I could get a hug from my mom. That’s about it.
As always, I have a million, trillion books on my shelf to read but any recommendations for a good vacation book?
