Dammit I hate when a picture this good comes out blurry, but let me reassure you we were having a great day.  Another day for the 3 of us together enjoying the day with me on the heal.  Didn’t sleep worth a damn last night so I moved to the couch and slept on and off until Kat drug me back to bed about 5:30.  I finally got up about 9:30 and our day began.  The day was gorgeous the plans were few with a strong chance of chillaxing,  especially since Kat is officially on vacation for the next two weeks.  She is so freaking incredible she took off the time in case I needed her help and to take care of me.  God has blessed me with with having this woman in my life and I love her so much.

Well Kat started with a SOMMA project while I cut my hair and cleaned up my act, I know some of you doubt that but I did.  Next we took Finn for a ride to Pet Smart to get Sydney food and all came home for a nap. Finally – Shop time!  We spent a great afternoon together in the shop with Finn enjoying the sun.  Tonight Kat made egg drop soup with tofu, parsnips and carrots and we are going to catch a movie on the couch then to bed early.

The Job

The next 10 days are going to be interesting.  I will have 11 radiations and 2 chemos with only next Sunday off.  That is why I have been resting and rebuilding this weekend, but that will get us to Thanksgiving.  We start again tomorrow at 8 so wish me luck and say a prayer if you would please, I will do the same for you.  Goodnight all.


LESSON OF THE DAY – Put on your glasses before you take the picture!
