Had a kind of hard day today. Just not feeling well. It’s day 7 of my cycle. I made the mistake of getting up and taking a bath, and then shower to rinse off, right away. I should know better. I need sustenance before I do anything when I’m going through this. No energy before food. So by the time I was out of the shower I had to lay down immediately so I didn’t throw up or pass out. Not fun. I managed to get through that, but it has informed my entire day. Nauseated on and off all day. I’ll get through it.
In other nice news though… Karen booked her return flight. She is coming home on Friday, October 1, at 1:15. I miss her terribly so knowing that she will be home in 9 days is the best gift I could get… even though she sent me another birthday present today. First she gets me a wonderful new watch that I can set two times on so that I will always know what time it is in England while she’s there (she’s a great gift giver!), and then today I get a Kindle. Yep… she got me a Kindle. So cool. I’ve talked about getting one, for traveling mostly, and so she got me one. It won’t always replace books, which I love, but it will definitely be cool to have. I love that woman of mine. She’s the best… and I mean that. I don’t say it lightly. She knows me, and loves me for me. What more can you want in a split apart?
Otherwise… Mom gave me my fourth shot today. I have to move them around and so this time it was in the arm. I can’t really reach to do it properly myself in that spot so Mom volunteered. I told her I would do it in my leg again, but she wanted to help out. So there it is. 4 down… 4 to go.
Now… time to watch Bravo’s Top Chef Just Desserts. I’m addicted.
