Busy week (I keep saying that, don't I?), but not much blog worthy. Kids have already finished their standardized testing so we have a lot of projects, field trips, special days on tap for the remainder of the year.
Hello, Rome Day.
Hello, end of Chinese studies day.
Hello, we're in desperate need of a haircut (happening today).
Hello, Ice Cream Day #4
I'm so tired of talking about myself, friends (I would rather have pretty pictures, reality TV, or funny kid stories to discuss), but here's my update from this week's visit with Dr. C. Her official words are that it's apparent my "disease is progressing." Coming up in the next 10 days I'm seeing a clinical trial oncologist, having a breast MRI, a CT scan with contrast, bloodwork, doctor's visit, then scan results on April 21. Also . . . . wait for it . . . . . . a dentist appointment. I might be dreading that one alot more than the other more important appointments.
I was also supposed to make a 3-day trip to Baltimore in that same 10-day window, but my thoughtful boss let me off the hook, and that reduces the stress level immensely. I'm feeling fine, both physically and mentally. Not necessarily looking forward to these appointments, but I really feel fine.
I'm trying to cut myself as much slack as I can in small ways like not volunteering to host Bible Study at my house, taking an hour to scrap at some point today instead of doing laundry, etc. It really is a very busy time both at work and church so adding in all these medical appointments make life interesting to say the least.
I hope the upcoming weekend is lovely. We're going to enjoy some cooler temps (it's been mid-80's and super humid this week), and I have every intention of taking advantage of the combination of pretty weather and a free Sunday afternoon to grab some of those pretty pictures I mentioned earlier.
