Some More Of The People I Love

Yesterday a few more of my favorite people stopped over after school. These boys live in town so I see them a bit more often than our other grands. They are Kevin's son's boys. 

They said they'd love me even if I don't give them Easter baskets this year. Kev nixed the idea of an egg hunt and even baskets this year. I can't go against him because I don't have the energy and he is 100% in charge of late. If you are a personal friend of mine you know I don't listen well and march to my own drummer.....but I can't now. Kev is the type of person who doesn't like to ask for help. Several people have offered help to us and he refuses, it's almost an insult, like saying he isn't capable. 
Speaking of energy, I'm almost afraid to say it but I do feel a bit better today. My appetite is better. I forgot to weigh myself the past 2 days but I weighed myself after breakfast today my weight was up over a pound. Usually people aren't happy about that...but I am. Do I feel better as a result of the chemo? Or is is it a result of skipping chemo this week? I don't care, I'll take it!! I still get tired if I do something, but I feel like doing it.
Yesterday my bff brought me some corned beef and cabbage....needless to say I took it easy on the cabbage, that was a treat. 
Today a friend is bringing me Mexican food for lunch....I hope my stomach likes it. Another friend is stopping over later.
We are looking forward to a quiet weekend, no visitors are scheduled...not that I don't like them....but I need alone time too. 
Hope you have a great weekend!!!


  1. Linda, What a cute bunch of young fellows. Get all the hugs you truly helps . Human contact is good for our souls. It is nice that friends are bring you food. That's the thing that helps when you are feeling tired and worn down. You are in my prayers Linda. Hugs to you, love you, Susie

  2. Thanks for visiting me at Fun Times! I look forward to looking around at your place to become acquainted :)
    Precious visitors you had, Linda. Hope your weekend brings you all that you need....solitude and rest sounds like what you wish for. Delightful!

  3. Linda, grandkids are a blessing, my 11 year old grandson is spending the afternoon and night with me. They always lift my spirit,especially when I am feeling down. We all get that way at times, the thing is to find things that make you happy and count your blessings. I hope you will be feeling well soon. My hubby went through Chemo and radiation in 2014 so I do understand how it can get. Blessings to you!

  6. It is wonderful that you have people that love you and bring you food and visit but, yes, you need time alone to recuperate, too. Well, even though it is a pain to have someone in charge of EVERYTHING it is still nice to have someone to take care of you and help as needed. Blessings and glad you are feeling a bit better. xo Diana
