Work, Dinner, and the Fair

I'm going to get a full week in this week.  That's good, since I don't know what next week will bring.  I spent four hours last night finishing up some testing that I was doing at home.  It's nice to be able to relax and get comfortable and still be able to work.

So I finished last night, and spent 45 minutes this morning composing an email with the results.  Not five minutes later, I got an email that a different round of testing was ready to start.  LOL  Well, that was some interesting timing.  It did free me up to come home midday and work from home some more.  I was a little bit sore and a lot tired.

Mom made my night, though, by bringing dinner over.  So amazing to just eat some wonderful stuff without the prep.  Coworkers have been really pitching in, too.  Now that I'm back at work, it's saved them the long drive out here, and they've been bringing stuff there and I'm bringing it home.

Our little town fair started tonight, so the girls are up there right now.  They're spoiled rotten, so their grandpa paid for all-you-can-ride wrist bands.  Kevin will pick Kami up tomorrow and we'll take her up there on Saturday.  Maybe tomorrow night AND Saturday.  Since it's only 2 blocks up the road, it's convenient for us.

We've decided to have a low-key weekend, just chilling out.  In the past, we've had a party on fair weekend, but there was no way I could entertain people this year.  I'm a bit emotionally unstable, and I don't know how I'll feel physically from day to day, either.  I just didn't want to chance having company.

It's my last weekend of "normal" for quite some time.  Chemo starts Tuesday.  Blech.

Oh, it isn't the last weekend of normal. It's just that you will now have a "new" normal. I will be so happy when things get back to the old normal.

Me, too. My goal is to not let worry ruin this weekend. Having Kameron here will help. So will the fair.
