Guess I won't be watching this show anymore for awhile. One of the highlights of my day while I was off work was watching The Price is Right and maybe 3 other shows worth watching during daytime television. Sounds exciting eh? Well what else was I to do? Since I've been home from the hospital and back to work, I've been on chemo treatments. It has something to do with my immune system not working properly. One thing I can vouch for is the rumor that you suffer hair lose with these treatments. I inherited thin hair from my mother and have had a small bald spot since my middle to late 30's but nothing to worry about much or at least I never let it worry me any. I still have hair but I have lost a bit during these treatments. Today was the last of 6 treatments which I took once a month. I'm sure glad that's over. You sit in a chair for 4 to 5 hours with an IV stuck in your arm while they pump this poison into you. The only highlight to the whole thing was at 10am The Price is Right came on and I would watch that. The rest of the time I either dozed off or just sat there bored as snot. From what my regular Doctor has told me I will be getting off the steriods after my next visit with the specialist. Don't remember what it was I will be taking but hopefully it will keep this thing from flaring up again. I've may a lot of progress but things still are not the way they should be. Just something I'm learning to live with and make the most of. Life's good even on the days it really sucks. I still wake up every morning, go to work, go places, take trips, and I'm able to drive myself and get around. That works for me.
I didn't get home until almost 3 today and it was hot outside so I ducked inside where it was nice and cool and stayed there. I thought about mowing the lawn but just being out there for a short time I didn't feel really good. The treatment must have been taking it's toll and besides I'm suppose to limit my exposure to the sun and it was cookin'. Ok so maybe I'll give it a shot in the morning while it's still cool as long as I'm up to it. Usually the day after I'm not my usual self and sometimes feel like doggy do do. Tomorrow will tell and who knows it might even be raining AGAIN.
I'm going to have to check out the mosquito situation outside tonight before I decide to go out and light a fire and watch a movie. If it's still hot out there I'm going to stay in the ac and watch it here. I may be a whimp but it's so nice and cool in here and besides why should I let the cats have it all to themselves.
I'm considering a raid on the local WalMart around 3am and pick up a few things and then maybe at 8am I'll book on over to the Seine River Cafe and have a skillet breakfast. That should hold me until I get to my friends house in the evening for a feast over there. I talked to Heather the lady of the house earlier today and she was boiling potatoes for homemade potato salad and was preparing a rhubarb pie. Sounds like another nummy dinner as always over there. I think I'll be taking the cleaning lady with me. The house over there should be nice and clean because she was there Thursday cleaning for my friends. They took her in as their new cleaning service after I told them how good she did over here.
Ellen use to have this carpet cleaning service come in every year and do the carpets here but I haven't done anything in 2 years with them. The lady from there has been keeping in touch with me about having them done but I've been holding off this year until some of the rain let up. No use cleaning when everything outside is muddy and wet. Today she called again as I had asked her to and we set a date to have it done. They do such a nice job and the same man has been coming here for years doing them. Living room, dining room and hallway for $99 and it's done right. The carpets look so much better afterwards. It helps if you keep them vacuumed at least once a week and I have one of those Dyson vacuums that will suck a bowling ball through a garden hose so there isn't much dirt in the fabric. That is one awesome vacuum cleaner. Lightweight, compact, easy to use and no bags.
So no excitement for tonight unless I get to pop corn and watch a movie outside (I'll pop it even if I'm forced to stay inside) and tomorrow is a we'll see day. Sunday is too far ahead to figure out right now but I still have a day to work on that one.
Ok it's getting late so I'm off to check the weather and the skeeters.
