A haircut makes some of the yucky go away
Long story short--My husband had to work so no time with my son. I just kind of did nothing this weekend. Everything I had planned was based around JJ.
To cheer myself up, I got my hair cut. It looks awesome. So awesome that included some photos. It is amazing how a simple cut and relaxer to the hair is such a pick me up. Plus, the lady who did my hair said my hair is very healthy. You could have knocked me over with a feather.
I worked some on Saturday and then had an impromtu photo session with my partner-in-crime and co-worker D. I am not a picture person but feel I do need some photos of myself. The cut looks awesome even if it was windy.
After two really good days after chemo, my mom feels like crap. The third through fifth days are really rough on her body. She has no appetite and aches. I feel so bad for her. But she is being quite a trouper.
On Sunday, I read the Sunday paper and watched a marathon of “The Hills.” The weekend wasn’t a total lost. And for the first time in awhile, I went grocery shopping. I have been grocery shopping at the Dollar General, Family Dollar and Dollar Tree because I couldn’t handle being in a grocery store. Those other stores are much smaller with less food. I went shopping yesterday and didn’t panic too much. Made a really good pasta salad and grilled chicken for lunch and dinner.
Mother’s Day is in two weeks. I am going home to see my mom and my son. As a gift to myself, I am taking JJ and I to see Iron Man2. I know he wants to see and so do I. I would feel bad seeing it without him. He is the perfect movie watching person. He thinks the whole experience is cool from buying the popcorn and drink to sitting in the comfortable seats. I am looking forward to it. Then I am going back to RR and then returning a few days later to keep my mom comfortable after the chemo. My brother had chemo company duty last weekend. I think my mom prefers me because I sleep in the bed with her and keep her company.
My first appointment with the new therapist is Thursday afternoon. I am taking a break between assignments. I hope to use this weekend to get back on the meds. I am handling things okay but I feel things shifting and starting to slide. I have a pair of pants that I use to judge if I have lost weight. If those pants fit perfectly, I am maintaining my weight fine but if I need a belt, things are not going well. I need a belt.
1. Finding the perfect Mother’s Day present
2. Not stressing about things I can’t control in life.
3. Having a day just to veg and relax.
