an extra hour

Fall back, everyone. Its daylight savings time time... time. An extra hour for whatever you want. What if what I want isn't an extra hour? I feel like right now I'm just killing time. If I can get to February, I'll be all better and get to start doing all the things I miss. I even miss things I didn't love. I miss exercising. I miss being tired. Isn't that strange? We're planning a trip in May and it is great to have something to look forward to. Something to think about in the middle of the night. I hold on to it on sick days knowing they won't last forever.

I have only two more bad chemos. I'm very glad because they are starting to bug me. My fingers now feel like i have dipped them in super glue down to the second knuckle. Who's fingers am I touching? Oh, mine. My feet are a mess. I have numbness and blisters and I feel like I'm walking on rocks. But, I'm not as nauseated this time and that means everything.

I've been in bed the last couple days. I emerged to find a new sunroom. Jaymeson and his dad have been working like crazy and have knocked down our old screened-in porch and replaced it with an all-weather room. Hooray for cancer! Hooray for Dave. He's pretty amazing.

Shel I hope you love the sunroom and that it wasn't too stressful of a process. I hate the stupid side effects. But I am so glad you aren't nauseous. I'm so sorry. I miss you and I love you.

Shel7by- I think and pray for you all the time. You amaze me and continuously make me laugh and thankful for the things I have, even when I want to whine about it. I'm sorry for all the icky side effects you have. You are always in my prayers (the whole cute fam).

On Friday when I came to pick up Mason to come play, I saw Jaymeson's dad so hard at work on the new sunroom. I can't wait to see the finished product! I'm sure it is going to be really nice to enjoy as the cooler weather approaches. Your family is awesome!!
