Have you ever sat down to figure how many times you need a username or a pw? It's a whole lot more than I care to keep track of...

Evening Chicks!

Home from Stamp Club. Ended up with a beautiful sunny day today, after SNOW yesterday.

Glad it is Friday.

I thought I would put in the request for the username again- still hasn't come through. If it doesn't on Monday I'll try calling them (and hope that they aren't closed for the holiday). I THINK I have it written down somewhere on the booklet but not sure where that has gone to either

Evening. Our snow ended up not amounting to much of anything. It's been mid 30s for a few days so lots has melted, now the cold air will be blowing in tomorrow afternoon. Monday's high is -2F...lowest "high" temp in four years. brrrr

How did stamp club go?

We had fun. We did a the skinny little tubes with Valentine M & Ms, and a Valentine card with the Hearts a Flutter Bundle.

Always fun to get together with the girls and chat!

It is 33* here and that is COLD to me. Can't imagine -2*

The big news weather headline is 50 degree drop between today and Monday. Yippee. Kids won't have school but I'll have to work.

We've gone up about 14 degrees today. Was -24C (about -12F) without windchill (and let me tell you, that wind was NASTY!) this morning. We're up to about -10C (14F) now without windchill. We're getting quite a bit of snow though. I'm not sure at what point this evening it started to snow (other than I know it was after 6, since that is when I got home), but we've already had a good half inch or so.

One can only hope.
With hockey season starting, Canadian skating nationals on, curling in mid-season and all the other sports that are on, I can't believe the amount of coverage he is getting up here. Though I suppose the fact that one Canadian (can't spell his name for the life of me - though I can pronounce it! - and can't be bothered to look it up) has made a name for himself in cycling the last year or two and the fact that Dick Pound, the head of WADA, is Canadian also - has helped fuel some of the coverage.

There's a pond hockey tournament this weekend. Teams came this year from Venezuela. Last year it was cancelled because it was too warm. This year they were worried from all the recent warm temps but there was a cold spell in the middle that froze it pretty good, plus the coming cold temps tomorrow will help it continue.

I saw an inappropriate sign about Lance Armstrong on facebook today.

It said "Finally, Lance Armstrong had the b*ll to admit yadda yadda..."


I usually don't appreciate that kind of crass language, but today, it ticked my funny bone.

Short and Sweet I am doing much better.

Strange cycle occuring.... walking with a cane on Sundays to Friday nights, then the 3 days of massive steriods let me walk cane free from Friday night to sometime on Sunday....but during that time I get the mild and heavy waves of nausea --- so I can walk for a bit but nausea makes me have to stay still... then the days I cannot walk well and have to do the cane I have no nausea.... what a strange combo.

Going back in tomorrow morning for 2 units of blood. This will happen about every 4 weeks due to the stronger "red devil" which eats red cells at a fast rate.

Brain is much more alert.

Using wheelchair only to move from vehicle to my classroom on the 3rd floor and back to car. LJ is driving me. I use the 4 point walker for all else during the day.

The MRI shows most damages are ortho/arthritis stuff.... a Baker's cyst and torn ALC in the left knee... and then my hip has issues. Dr. Baltz says his term is "dry rot" .... no surgery upcoming. These 2 issues and a major hernia are on hold until after all chemos.... so we are looking at least 2 years or more down the line.

There are 2 bands of swelling on my left thigh and now I have started something similar on the right thigh. He suspects these are issues from the "red devil". I also see a major clearing of the hands from the chemo induced taxol prosaris from the red devil.

Skin is so fine like paper due to the 2 blood thinners a day.

But my mind is growing alert again as I lower the meds..... tomorrow I get blood and hopefully Sunday I will want to sit in the scrapbook room again.


Been in bed since 4 with nausea.... took strong anti nauseas, had a few chemo flashes, and need to go get something in my tummy with this next round of anti nauseals. It is strange but for chemo nausea, small amounts of food with the plls ease things. With nausea from any other illness, it just makes it worse.

So bottom line - things are better. That is the silver lining this week. Hope to pop back in again before too long.

Arlene

So glad to see you! I missed you but I've been praying. Sounds like things are good... in a weird way.

I just want you healthy enough that the doctor says, "Don't come in until your annual checkup."

Then I want a repeat.

This is why if I don't write them down I can never remember them all. The brain doesn't work so good some days.

Three Girl Scouts backed out for today. Guess I need to have the parent's pay when they cancel last minute. $24 hard earned bucks down the drain.

There's 12 girls altogether. Sometimes I'd bring dd2 to cover an open spot but this isn't something for her age group. So I'll at least take the badges home with me and make the three earn it doing something else. Parent's just don't take this serious sometimes. I give many opportunities to opt out before payment is due. They fill out the form committing their child to the event and then still back out, seems to be easier to back out when the Troop pays than when they pay for it themselves. *sigh* The other leader's daughter has a basketball game today and she's at least bringing her to the event and then leaving early.

Start putting a thing on the sign up sheet that if they cancel/back out less than x days before the event, they forfeit the fees.

Good gravy! Whoever snowplows my building parking lot usually does the quickest, worst job possible, never even bothering to plow the parking spaces with no cars - usually just plows a path one or two plows wide down the middle.
Dude that is out there now is plowing so thoroughly it sounds like he is ripping up the pavement.
