Another Thankful Thursday

God's blessings, but would you quit raining them down, already?  Maybe just sprinkle gently?

Last year was a record drought.  This spring, we are 7+ inches above normal for rainfall already.  Can we find a happy medium, please?

I am thankful for a relatively quiet week.  Two nights with nothing on the evening schedule - a blessing indeed!

I am thankful for parents willing to help with baseball.  I am not in any shape to do it, and it was wet, muddy and cold for practice this week.  First game is next week, woohoo!

I am thankful for my neighbor across the street, who planted flowers for me and attacked some unruly weeds.  He has a beautiful yard for me to look out on, and I think he would like the same, so he offered to plant if I would buy.  How convenient that the high school and Garden Club both had their annual plant sales in the last few weeks.

I am thankful for Cinco de Mayo chicken & rice, spaghetti, fettuccini, and pizza.

I am thankful for our teachers, as it is Teacher Appreciation Week, and 9 more days of an alarm clock for the boys and I.  Sorry, Tom, you still get to work 5 days a week.

Ya want a health update, while I am here? 

Well, I have slept as much as I have been awake during the day this week.  My hands are tingly.  My feet are on fire.  My fingers and toes are swollen like sausages.  My knees hurt, but are slowly getting better.  There are less narcotics today than yesterday, and much less than Tuesday.  I saw the surgeon today, and we are still on track for mid-June for bilateral mastectomies and left lymph nodes.  Komen Race for the Cure is June 15.  Last chemo is next Friday - woohoo!  I am still bald, and slightly crazy, if there was any doubt.

So glad to hear from you today! I don't get out it seems to read as much as I used to and yet I think of everyone all the time :) Woo-hoo for next Friday! I for sure will be thinking of you and praying that all of the side effects will dissipate and leave when the "poison" is gone! Love and blessings to you!
