After my son told me to install steam and create an account I added one “friend”. It was Brad, my office mate.  He gifted me two games. Now I have three new games to play!  I haven’t had a chance to see how this will work on my netbook, if at all, but I am hopeful that instead of spending productive time while sitting with IV’s every Thursdays I will play GAMES! I am already stuck on one puzzle in the one game, which has a name…um…safecracker something. 

I am determined to buy myself a new purse. I will go to Elder Beermans at lunch today and look. I need a bag big enough to carry all of my normal stuff plus extra electronics and necessaries for the time spent during treatment. Granted I could use a nice plain tote bag, but I am not going to! My office building actually shares a parking lot with Sears & Elder Beerman. I should shop there more often.

I feel rather like I am preparing for a journey. Getting all of my ducks in a row before the six weeks where one thing takes priority over every other thing.

I am wearing my big girl shoes today. It finally got cold enough that I was forced to wear pants. I have one pair now that fit me comfortably. It is amazing how long it takes to heal and unswell.


Since I started this I in fact made good on my plans for lunch of purse shopping at Elder Beerman. My daughter stopped by the office so she came with me. Nice purse, bright red, big enough to hold all my stuff fashionably, 40% off, then an additional 20% off! They are having their Goodwill sale but I didn’t bring anything! They just applied the coupon code. I didn’t notice till I got back to the office. This allowed me to buy a nicer quality with no guilt. W00t!


I have ridden my stationary bike for the last three days. I can only ride for 15 minutes at a time so far. I am going back to yoga on Wednesday night hopefully.

  1. your positive attitude is wonderful, and that is one hip bag!

  2. Love love love you and love that red bag what just how cool is that red…

  3. love love the shoes and bag

  4. That is one CUTE bag.  I never run into sales like that.  Of course, I work in a metal building, so there is NOTHING adjacent that would remotely carry anything like that!  (However, if you are looking for some mower or weedeater parts, I know just the place…)

  5. Cute bag! Looks big enough for all your stuff!

  6. I’m sorry about the pants. I always hate to put the shorts away. 

  7. I love me a nice red bag!  Good job!  How long do your treatments take? And my doc told me that light exercise, even walking is the best way to fight the fatigue… since you are a few steps ahead of me you will have to let me know if it is true! I am praying for you, and you are never far from my thoughts!

  8. @beadbrat – I hope you’re doing well! My radiation treatments are supposed to take about 30 minutes, and on Thursdays I’ll do chemo & radiation so I’ll be there for six hours. Thank goodness for all of my electronic toys. My healing from the surgery has been consistently two or three times faster than was expected, I think it’s because I was doing so many physical routines before. I really tried to keep moving as much as possible. I still have about one day out of five (like today) that I am just tired and really need to take it easy and then I do.I am exceptionally lucky to be in a situation that I have that option and that I can just tell everyone that today is a down day and it’s perfectly acceptable.

  9. That bright red bag will cheer you, and so will the games.  My son got me hooked on puzzle games last year, balance and the like.  there was this silly Sushi Cat game that got me too.  while I was waiting for surgery, every night after work I went into my virtual world Haven and Hearth, where the risk of wild boars goring me to death was very real and nobody had cancer.  Love games that suck me in…

  10. I have serious purse envy!

  11. Yea you found a purse!!  Bright and pretty!  I was looking for a new purse last Thursday but came home without one.  They were all so boring and I wanted something with some spice!!  I’ve never heard of Steam.  Will have to check it out some time!

  12. I love your big girl shoes! and that bright red purse should keep you cheery! I hope the games keep you busy, i get addicted to some and it’s amazing how much time can go by before I know it…hope that happens for you on Thursdays especially!!
