A Good Day At Last

So far this week has been really nice. On Monday I got another package from the girls at the store that have sent me little care packages from time to time. This time I got the cutest Christmas pins (two of them) and 3 pair of Christmas earrings. And as always a funny card that makes me smile. I also finally had a long phone call from one of my most favorite people, Tammy who showed up here just when I needed her. She's my inspiration for sure and she and I both had a bad week last week and didn't get to talk. So that always cheers me.
Yesterday my blood work was good so I don't have to change the dose of the blood thinner I'm taking and she said if it stayed good next week I wouldn't have to have blood work every single week, they could spread it out. That is very good news because I cannot tell you how tired I am of being stuck!
And, yesterday afternoon my Nurse called me and told me she had a lady there that saw the bracelets I'd made them and she wanted to know if I'd make her three of them except with a breast cancer ribbon. She caught me off guard a little and I really quoted a price that is way too low, barely pays for my materials, but that is ok, and then she called back and said the lady wanted two more, and then she called back and said she wanted one more, so six all together. WOW! I got work to do now. I have all I need except the ribbons so I had to order them. But I was so excited that someone actually wanted them! So that made me happy.
I also got some Christmas shopping online done. I've always wanted to give my granddaughter the world so I bought her a globe. So all in all, I had a very good day. We'll see how today goes and not think about tomorrow morning when I have two big old jugs of that chalky stuff to drink for my CT scan, YUCK! But then I remind myself that this would have been the week I would have had Chemo so the chalky stuff is really NOTHING! Have a good day!

First of all, I love the new look! I can't figure out how to get my photo the size I want for my header!

I knew people would want those bracelets after they saw your sweet nurses wearing them. But set yourself a price that gives you a bit of a profit, girl! Do it now so the next time someone orders one you have that info set.

And blessing on your chalky stuff!!! YUCK is right.......but if it shows you are doing well, then worth it, right?

I'm thinking of you...........marge

Thanks Marge, I hope you have a good day today. And yes on the chalky stuff, I have faith that all is going to be well.

Up and away. I know you are walking at least a foot off the ground.

Life is good when you feel good and can be productive at the same time.

You may have a new calling--a jeweler.

I'm very proud of you for what you have accomplished since I first began reading your blog.

Thinking of you always.

Thank you Shirley, keep me in your prayers tomorrow for my scan. I won't know the results until Tuesday but I feel very positive.

Not everyone likes to wear the fancy holiday sweaters and colors to celebrate the holidays though. A great way to incorporate the holidays with your wardrobe is to wear one of many holiday pins to show your enthusiasm for the season!
