This Week's Activities

It was a busy week for me.
Any day I have to get dressed and leave the house I consider it a  busy day.
Tuesday evening I went to book club.
Wednesday is chemo day, as we waited for the blood chemistry results I found out that chemo was a no go, my white blood count was too low. It seems like my body can only handle 2 weeks of chemo in a row. Next week is my scheduled off far it's been 2 weeks of chemo, and 2 weeks off. There's nothing, short of a transfusion, that can build white blood cells. 
I was able to attend grandparents day for one of my grandsons who lives in town. Since I don't, drive my girlfriend took me. Deb is also Jalen's Godmother, so it was fitting that she go too. I think the student's favorite part of grandparents day is that we bring them lunch. It's ok, I know it means a lot when someone shows up at school for the student.

On friday my daughter and son came for a visit, it wasn't planned that they come on the same day, it just worked out that way. They came from different directions and arrived within 5 minutes of each other. Tim wanted to go out for lunch so off we went. We opted for the new Mexican place in town. We all enjoyed our lunch. I had a lot of food....only ate 1/2 of it. Now I have lunch for tomorrow. Afterward we drove down to the beach and just watched the waves, birds, boats. We really had a nice visit. Those 'kids' don't get together, even at the this is an additional blessing.

I received this magnet along with a turban I ordered. 
My daughter gave me the Bad Hare Day gummies. Is is possible to have a bad hair day if you don't have any hair???

We don't have any weekend plans. Kevin was scheduled to work on saturday but found out they are not working. He wants to go golfing at least one day.....I don't know if he has gone at all this spring or not, he usually stays home with me. He deserves some time with the guys doing something he enjoys. 
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it's finally warming up here.....50 here today. It was warmer away from the lake, but we had sunshine and 50 was warmer than we've seen in a long time.
Have a great weekend peeps :-)  


  1. where do you get your turbans dear? prayers continue for you, and great big hugs

  2. Linda, So good to see you with your grand. We sure our kids and grandkids don't we? I am happy you had time out with the children and enjoyed your meal. You are in my prayers, everyday. Blessings, love you, xoxo, Susie

  3. I am so glad you were able to get out for the school function and for lunch....and it is wonderful to see your adult children together, isn't it?
    Sorry you weren't strong enough for the chemo but maybe an extra week without the side effects is the bonus?
    Keeping you in my prayers, Linda. John ate something for the first time this week so we know that his throat is at least 'open'.
    Love and Blessings to you- Diana
