Thoughts On Thursday

My first thought is that I'm glad I know it's thursday! 
When I wake up in the morning I often have to stop and think 'What day is it?' 
Someones I think about what hubby did the day before, it used to be did he golf? (twice a week), now I wonder if he bowled....that means it's friday. Kinda sad that I have to depend on his activities to determine what day it is. Never fear, I have plenty on my's just that I don't have to get up for work so when I wake up I'm not sure what day it is. Is this weird or does anyone else suffer from this affliction????

I used to be a redhead and inside I still am!

I am so angry at myself. Tuesday afternoon I could have attended 2 different sporting events for grandchildren, and there was also a cancer support meeting that I really wanted to go to. I just had to find out what location it would be at, they switch meeting places every month. I totally forgot about it, I was thinking of it in the afternoon....but like often happens, if it's after supper I'll just forget...and I did. (sad face)
When I peruse the thrift stores I look at almost everything....that's why I prefer our small St Vinnie's in town. Anyway, I sometimes see turbans or hats that would work for chemo patients. As I look at those I get a sick feeling in my stomach....remembering, feeling bad for those people who owned the head covering and for those who will purchase it for future use. I get that same feeling when I walk in the back door of the medical building for an INR. It just smells so strongly of cancer drugs. It's hard to handle. I have physical therapy in the same building and use the front door for that appointment. Unfortunately I still have to walk toward and look down the hallway leading to the cancer treatment area. 
Been there, done that, praying I don't have to do it again.
That's what I'm thinkin' about today.
Thanks for letting me share with you.


  1. I have a large monthly calendar on my refrigerator, and a rooster magnet that I move from day to day...that's what I need for my poor memory. Working I never had to retired I only know Sundays...HaHa cause it church.
    I was born a dark auburn redhead....and as I began to turn grey, it actually looks more strawberry blond. However's pretty much gray...but I too am still a redhead on the inside. Nice blog...nice to hear your thoughts. Love and Hugs.

  2. PI pray you don't have to either! My cousin's granddaughter is 30 years old and is getting chemo and such. We are all praying......

  3. I have had a hard time knowing what day it is for many years.(since I was no longer working) I pray you don;'t get cancer again.

  4. I still get queasy when I am near the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago as that is on the way to the University Hospital there! Strange, huh? I don't know if I think they are going to grab me and make me have more surgery? I cannot stand the smell of medicine I can only try to imagine what you must feel like.
