Chemotherapy starts tomorrow. I am really not nervous about it. No fear.
We had a wonderful weekend, despite the storms that raged through Mississippi yesterday. We stayed in for pizza and a movie (The Blindside) Friday night. Seems like it rains every time we bring Vanelli's home for dinner. We went to the mall mid-morning Saturday, so Jack could burn some energy while playing inside. Kevin and Grandma watched Jack play on the mall playground, which I love, while Luz and I did some window shopping. Then we all went to the theater for a movie. Kev and I watched "How to Train a Dragon" in 3D with Jack. I like the 3D graphics, but am not a big fan of the movie. I thought it was too loud and a little long for the lack of content. Hiccup was a favorite, though. Grandma and Jack hung out together in the evening so Kevin and I could enjoy a special evening out to dinner at my favorite restaurant in town, Park Heights. I won't be able to eat salad for a while, or any raw fruit/veggies, during chemo. I love the endive/watercress salad with citrus dressing and pine nuts and their awesome crab cakes. YUMMY! We brought desert home for Luz...ok and me. :) Today was a beautiful, gorgeous day. Wanna know how I spent it? Napping for 2 1/2 hours after church. I really needed the nap, but I'm sure that's why I'm up so late tonight. Father Tom came over to visit. Kevin and I were truly grateful. He had called to check in before, but I never got around to calling him back. He prayed the sacrament of the sick with us. Grandma brought dinner over. Thanks, Grandma! Mom, Dad, and Amanda called to check in this afternoon. I'm looking forward to seeing Mom and Amanda this week.
I'm sure this is one of the most boring blog entries you've ever read. I'm not sure why I felt the need to post it, other than maybe to share how "normal" everything felt this weekend with all that is going on in my life right now. I cherish every moment I have with family right now. Jack has been so good. I don't think he realizes anything different right now. If he does, he's taking it all in stride.
