I'm not the Energizer Bunny...

Hello all! Did you all have a good Easter? I hope everyone had a fun and happy day! My day wasn't so bad either. I spent it doing something therapeutic for me, pulling weeds and doing yard work. I know that probably sounds crazy and I think it is too, but I enjoy doing yard work. The end result is what makes me happy so it's fun doing it! I probably over-exerted myself yesterday but seriously I couldn't sit inside and watch anymore TV. I was starting to go stir crazy. I have a nice looking back yard again, but oopps, I have burnt bald noggin now. Ouch.

My parents came back from the Grand Canyon yesterday and came and picked me up and took me to Outback for Easter dinner. It definitely was a treat and I enjoyed every morsel. Of course it was good to get out of the house and have a little family time!!

Today I wanted to be somewhat productive to get back into the swing of things. I went to Loco to catch up on the week's paperwork, etc. I was there for about 3 hours. I wanted to run a couple more errands, but I was so pooped I just went to Fry's to get a few things and back home it was. That was enough for me. It's starting to get frustrating because I feel good, I just don't have any energy. It's definitely taking me longer to bounce back to my normal self this time around, that's for sure. But, I never did expect this to be easy. One day at a time.

I always have been a fan of mail. I like going to get my mail, it's exciting to me (even if it is just bills!). It's especially exciting now because I never know who is going to send me something to put a smile on my face. Well, today I got lots of smiles and it made me happy. I got 2 cards in the mail and I got a package from my chemo angel Mary. These angels are awesome!! She sent me a pink/black monogrammed E tote, a matching E photo album and some chocolate/sweets. How nice!! I can't wait to be an angel when I'm done with this...it's a great program.

So that my friends is the update for now. I plan on going back to work on Wednesday, but I cut my hours back by 2 each day so hopefully that will help me energy wise. I will see how Wednesday goes, but hopefully after another day of rest tomorrow and not doing much I will be good to go! Maybe the Energizer bunny will then come to stay...ha.

Till the next time...

Love you all--E
