    Let's call this "Fun Friday" Are you going to do anything for "fun" this weekend?

    Since a lot of you don't have to have treatment tomorrow or Sunday, and hopefully lots of others are getting to the end of treatment or done, will you do anything this weekend for fun, to get your mind off your journey?

      Well, I had my infusion yesterday, and due to a scheduling snafu I am having a follow up Mamo and seeing my Breast surgeon today so "fun" is a relative word. I am hoping to have enough energy to get visit friends on Sunday, otherwise planning to sleep as much as I can and catch up on reading and/or DVR shows.

      I will start by praying and thanking God when I wake up, then it's off to yoga. After that, I will go to my favorite coffee shop and have a relaxing breakfast and read my book. Then, I'll do anything I feel like doing coz I have no work! Yehey!

      I am spending Saturday watching college football. Even if my Buckeyes can't go to a bowl game this year.

      Define "fun". My wife is dragging me to a charity dinner tomorrow night. At least it will be a diversion as long as I don't get too many questions about my condition. In my case I am on a break from chemo to get ready for surgery in a week and a half so I already have a diversion. I also get to make a dump run too, more fun!!! I do hope to be able to watch some football. Here in Seattle the rain is returning after being gone for almost 3 months so outdoor activities were better done last weekend when it was still nice. Still it will be nicer than spending the weekend recovering from my usual Friday poision session.

      Tonight is Girls Night Out! Good food, great company and a couple of adult beverages. This has been a long hard week at work and I am looking forward to letting my hair down (figuratively speaking, of course). I wish everyone a wonderful weekend.

      Peroll, I used to laugh at what I called the "old XXX benches" at the mall. When I have to go with my wife for her fun. Now, I am a proud member of the "old XXX club". I just sit and wait.

      But I draw the line at holding a purse!

      You gotta love the safety software, your not going to say anything that would be construed as bad in any way. It wasn't bad, so just have fun with it.

      We're going to our favorite pumpkin patch out in the country. They have a huge field of pumpkins, a train ride, lots of kid stuff, and a bakeshop that is out of this world. I will have my customary slice of lemon walnut pie, and then I will go to my special rock.

      Two years ago, we went to this pumpkin patch while I was in the midst of being diagnosed, and
      just so scared. I found a big rock to sit on, and prayed to God that I would still be around in a year. I vowed to return every year, to thank God for still being alive. Last year it was sheer joy to sit on "my rock" and pray, and rejoice that I was still here.

      I try to have fun on the weekends. My mind is full of ideas but I have trouble getting motivated because my energy level is low.. I don't feel normal. Lots of emotional and physical changes since treatment. I seem to spend too much time at home alone watching TV which is so opposite from the way I was before cancer. The winter season is coming soon here in New York and I will surely be housebound then..
      Am I letting this disease consume me?

      I had chemo on Wednesday so hoping side effects don't change my plans for the weekend. Saturday we will be celebrating a couple of birthdays and Sunday is the season premiere of The Walking Dead (zombie show) so my friends and I are having a premiere watch party. :) Can't wait!

      Since I am having to stay at an Extended Stay hotel while in treatment, this weekend has been very special. Friends drove down on Friday and are staying until Sunday just to cheer me up. It has been wonderful! Got my mind off of my own problems, laughed a lot, went out for nice dinners sat pool side until the wee hours (for me that's about 11 pm right now) and just talked and talked. My husband and I are so grateful for our friends. I am taking this energy into next week - chemo and radiation start again at 6:20 AM Monday morning. It's going to be a good week.

      Since I have an appointment with a urologist on Monday morning, I decided to treat myself to two operas: one on Saturday night for "Moby Dick" which was wonderful and one on Sunday afternoon, "I Capuletti e i Montagues" (The Capulets and the Montagues) at the San Francisco Opera. In memory of my dear friend who lost her battle with non-Hodgkins on April 22, I am seeing the operas we would have attended together. I'll update with the latest diagnosis after I return from the doctor on Monday and hope it's good news.

      I was at a pot luck gathering yesterday (Saturday) with other raw foodists. We talk about how we made this or that as there is no heating involved and not an animal product to be tasted, what else we are doing or discovering to improve health thru nutrition and other ways and it is always a great bunch of people with excellent ideas and stories of struggle and continued victory.
      Today (Sunday) is work as I am showing a house for rent or for sale.

      As an 8 year Survivor of Stage IV Tonsil Cancer I'm off my couch. My 10 year old son and I participated in a 5K run. My son just started running this year, I've been "turtle" running for over 3 years now and we both set a new Personal Best Record for finish time. It's not easy being a runner having had the radiation do a number on my lungs and throat, but I do it because I am a Warrior and whether I run, walk or crawl to that finish line I will cross that finish however I must. Next month I am going to try my first ever 10K. I am 52 years young.

      We celebrated my mom's 75th birthday today (Sunday). She is in 100% remission from AML and doing great! She still has 3 more rounds of chemo, but today we made her Queen for the Day and cooked her favorite dinner. We made sure to clean up the kitchen, so she can relax and watch her favorite shows on TV tonight. It was a really nice family day :)

      Wednesday Tom and I planted more tulips and for the first time hyacinths. Twenty-Five ears ago I planted them in the ground around our home. I was having cancer surgery on Oct. 1 that year..(Hysterectomy, but they were going to leave the ovaries... I was too young). I didn't tell Tom then, but I was busy praying I'd be there to see them bloom. I was they were lovely and came up for another twenty years (almost). We moved into our Townhome in 2001. We're not allowed to plant in the ground, but we may have planters.... Last year we planted ten pots of tulips. Left them out to freeze and then kept them in our unheated garage until they knowig it was spring started poking their noses out of the dirt. We waited until March (in Minnesota) and in mid March we put them out, nestled with the bushes in the landscape. We had a very warm wet Spring. Our neighbors couldn't say enough, and kept asking how.. Well... We kept those pots outside and watered, now we've got twelve more pots. Will put the hyacinths in the window box we've added (We did purple and gold)... Go Vikings!!!! and the multi colored pots of tulips in addition to last year... I hope they make it, We'll get ready for Holloween this week-end... I love getting the house "kid ready".

      I'm a sucker for anything ART. :) My bf is taking me and the kids to an art walk at "The Brewery" in LA. It's something we go to every year, but each time we go, we can never finish seeing all there is to see. :) I love seeing other people's creativity and getting a peek inside their heads. Can't wait!
