Hello peeps! I had today off from work but I had a lot I wanted to accomplish. I think I did a pretty good job checking things off my list. I even did some yard work as well! I haven't mowed my grass in months (but then again it's dead so it doesn't need to mowed that often!) HA.
I went to eat lunch with Chris's mom today too and that was nice to catch up with her. I haven't chatted with her in awhile so it was nice.
The worst part of my day happened when I was getting ready. I washed my hair yesterday so I just needed to put some product in my cute little pixie cut to get her all funky but as I was doing that strands of hair were falling out. Oh dear Lord. No clumps yet just strands and strands. Every time I touch my hair some falls out. It's really sad. I've cried a few times today and I'm tearing up thinking about it. I've told you all before that I think it will really hit me that I have cancer when I lose my hair. I mean I lost a HUGE part of it last week, but I still had hair on my head. I posted on Facebook, "strand by strand, it's a goin'. I guess I'll see you in a few months lovely locks." One of my sorority sisters posted after that, " and cell by cell the cancer is going away. Good bye!" SO PERFECT. Totally made me cry. She's very true though and I know this will all be worth it in the long run but man does it suck right now. I got some cute bandanas and 2 scarves today too...so I'm prepared to rock the baldness. My cute little pixie cut may not even last a week...
On a lighter note I have done some thinking and I think for my own good that I'm really considering eating more organically. I don't think I can go completely green...I really do love meat and dairy but I can eat it healthier. My Mom has put me into contact with someone who knows about this stuff more than I do. I went to Sprouts today and I felt like a person in a foreign country. I was so lost. I had no idea what was good and what wasn't (even though I'm sure everything in there is good). I'm just so unfamiliar with all the brands and I just didn't know where to start. Totally overwhelming (as if my life right now isn't already!) So if anyone has some advice feel free to let me know. I don't think I've ever included my email address in this blog but here it is: firstname.lastname@example.org
So that's the update for today. It's also my Dad and Aunt's birthday. Dad, Mom and I are going to Lo Lo's Chicken and Waffle's for his exciting birthday dinner tomorrow night. If you didn't know my Dad LOVES chicken. So that's where he picked! Ha. I also get the beloved pet, aka Sydney tomorrow night for 10 days. She will have fun with Heidi and Frank.
So even though I'm shedding part of my body it's a sign that everything is working...I just need to keep telling myself it's part of the process and it's another chapter I can close.
Let's see what tomorrow brings...
