Barn Sour...

Hello all! Yes, I am barn sour. Not sure if I'm near 100% yet, but I'm getting there. I am really sick of sitting around though, but seriously that's all that my body has allowed me to do. This round was the toughest by far. Eek. Thankfully there is only ONE MORE TO GO!! You have no idea how excited that makes me and how it is helping me to get thru this one!!

Let's see, since Thursday (when I got my shot) I left the house for the first time today. Get ready...it was a big trip and a long one too. Totally kidding...I went down the street to Taco Bell to get food. Ok, I know probably not the healthiest meal in the world, but during treatment when I'm resting I do things that make me happy, I mean I should right? Taco Bell sounded good and it got me out of the house for the first time since Thursday. Whew! Even though it was a short trip, it felt good to see other human beings...ha.

Speaking of other human beings, my Mom, Aunt and Aimee all came over on Friday night and we played games and had girl time. It was good fun. We decided we should continue this post chemo! I love my family and friends.

Like I said, this round hasn't been fun. Is it because there is no more cancer in my body and the chemo is killing all my good cells? I've been wobbly, super weak, lethargic, energy less, you name it, but thankfully I haven't been praying over the porcelain God. It definitely could be worse. Sleep? Well, last night was the best night. I have taken naps here and there, went to bed early, went to bed late....it doesn't matter, my body is weird and if I sleep, I sleep. Thankfully I've had all the time in the world to catch up on it!

I have entertained myself with Netflix. I'm watching total trash, but it's ok...I like it. I'm catching up on the 1st season of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" and I'm also watching "Dexter." I'm almost done with Season 1. I'm able to watch "Dexter" thru my Wii...interesting huhh? Oh technology these days.

Tomorrow I am leaving my barn for more than 5 minutes. I will be going to the Loc to make sure it hasn't fallen down and to clean the office because I'm sure it's a mess from the lack of my organizing. :) I may run another errand or 2, but we will see how I feel. I am going back to work on Wednesday...by then I simply can't sit around another day. These next 2 days should be good enough to get me back in working order. At least I hope...

So that my friends is the latest...isn't it exciting? I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend. Mine sure is relaxing even though I would rather be doing a million other things!

June is around the corner and we all know that is my favorite month...let the birthday countdown begin, but honestly, this June I'm beginning the end of cancer countdown!!

Till the next time...

Love, E
