Ok, not really, but it was shining bright and yellow in my bedroom window and so almost full this morning at 4:30 when my eyes suddenly opened and I was up for the day. I tried to go back to bed, but after an hour or so, it was no use. I went to sleep pretty early and I guess I'm done sleeping. So, even though my camera in no way is able to get a shot of the moon, well, I just had to try and got that one over there which isn't very good, but you can see how orange it is. I love the moon.
For the next few days I will be busy with family reunion stuff, helping out and visiting with family that have come in early to help, my mother's immediate family , who's throwing the whole shindig this year. They are out at the Campground today. I'll drive out later this morning and watch my mother flitter around like a mad woman. She makes me nervous and I get in her way, but so is the way it is with the two of us. I'm hoping this year and I've asked her to let her sisters to things, but they do things different from the way she does and she just can't help herself, it is who she is.
Anyhow......that's about it for my life right now. CAN you believe how good I feel? I wish you knew how good I feel. I'm afraid to say it too loud or too much. And I know as more of the chemicals get into my body things will get harder but my goodness! What a blessing this time. And a blessing I do not take for granted. So far, no more hair has fallen out, just that little weird patch in front, I'm wearing a base ball cap during the reunion and not worrying about it for now. Next week, we'll think about buzzing it. I'm determined to do it myself before the chemo does it, gives me a sense of power over it or something weird like that.
Anyway, the moon has passed over now and the sun is preparing to rise, maybe I'll see that too, the moon and the sun in the same morning, what a gift that is.
I'm anxious to spend time today with one of my favorite cousins that I grew up with. He and I are only a few years apart. He's faced lots of challenges in his own life but his humor always makes me feel good and we never get to see each other much. I think he is going fishing today though darn it! I want to go fishing! I can't for fear I'll get sunburned. But I could sure use an afternoon sitting in a boat in the middle of a pond fishing. I've not gone fishing for years!
And so, I'll end for now, if you're still with me, lol. I'm rambling here, nobody here to listen to my mind go on and on. Even Sweetie is still asleep.
I hope for each of you a wonderful day.
I'm really excited to have somewhere to go and something to do and to be around people this weekend.
