Been a while

I haven't updated my blog in a few days... I wondered why myself!  I've really found writing here very cathartic for me, so it came as a surprise to me that it didn't cross my mind to do it. 

There are a few reasons why - because of the holidays, I have clients that want to get work done because it's a 'slow' time for them.  I am short a technician, so I have to fill in for him if necessary.  It's also Year End and the last payroll.  Monday's snow.  Needless to say, I have been very busy at First Direct!

Sarah's friend Katie gave her a cookbook for Xmas and they chose a few recipes to make for us on Tuesday night.  I helped out a little, but mostly I loved seeing the 2 of them having such a good time doing this!  They really enjoyed working in the kitchen and really enjoyed eating their creations! 

Angela organized the Yanarella Holiday Party on Wednesday night sandwiched between Christmas and New Years.  The perfect time to relax and chat with my fellow teachers at one of my favorite restaurants, Brother's.  And, who walked in while we were eating??? Denise and Bill!!! What a surprise they came across the river to have dinner with their friends at the same restaurant!  I had a great time with them - as I knew I would.  I took advantage of being down in Beacon with Sarah and connected with Steph and Meg over at Chill for a glass of wine afterward. 

Why is it these people just make me so comfortable and happy?  Friendship is such a strong bond.

Back to the question - why didn't I update my blog?  Because I felt NORMAL!!! Working, being with my family, seeing friends - and not feeling the least bit tired.  I went to sleep at my normal hour without a nap during the day and didn't even feel tired at mid afternoon.  I ate at normal times.  I was busy, I was myself and loved it. 

That was the end of the three week span between treatments and know what I can plan for next time.  Today, it starts all over again.  I am told that I 'may' experience the same things, but it's not a guarantee. 

I'm off to Dyson to start my 2nd Chemotherapy treatment - stay tuned!!!
