You know, a little lunchtime gossip while I eat my soup.
Got my port cleaned this morning (sounds kind of like a euphisim for something if you don’t know me doesn’t it?) then had the celebratory Tim Hortons breakfast that I reward myself with if I’m a big girl and don’t whimper when they punch the needles in. I have grown attached to my port (no pun intended) but I think I will plan on getting rid of it in March. I will look up the recovery time this afternoon and hopefully it’s not as bad as the recovery from the implanting. I can’t do it until Corey gets home and by then the veins should be all the way healed, I hope. Still have one long bruise up one arm and nine or ten lumps. I have some sort of superstitious thing going where I am convinced that as soon as it comes out something will happen to make me need an IV. Forcing myself to get over it by March, or just suck it up and do it anyway.
On my way to the hospital this morning I realized I had forgotten my hearing aid. Thought about going home to get then realized Brad is on vacation this week so I’ll be okay without it at work! I only put this in here in case Brad reads today, but it’s true. 🙂
I made Spice cake with canned pumpkin instead of the oil & eggs again this weekend. It came out much better than the first time I did it! I think I didn’t cook it long enough last time. This time I was sick when I cooked it and got busy with that and couldn’t get it out of the over in time! Silver linings and all. If you cut it into 12 pieces it’s like 120 calories per piece. I cut mine into 20 pieces of oddly assorted sizes, not on purpose. So I figure between 50 & 100 calories per piece. I wrapped each one individually and threw them in the freezer. Really good!
Regardless of what it looks like I did not put sesame seeds, hot mustard or sweet & sour sauce in them. I just never finished putting away my groceries that day.
This morning I was bleaching my sink and somehow managed to splatter bleach on my brand new shirt. I really like this shirt too! I bought it for a whooping $7.00 off of the Kohls clearance rack. I think it’s low enough that I can tuck it in. I did however also discover that it went all the way through and put a couple of spots on my pants too! BOO!
When I look at you I do not ever see weakness. I see someone who has survived so many things that other people will never have to deal with. I do not see someone who cannot cope, I see someone who is just tired right now. I believe that once you have time to heal physically and mentally, you will be stronger than ever. I think it’s really important for you to realize that this is what you project, people are not looking at you and thinking how weak you are. They are thinking how amazing you are. I hope you can see that for yourself.
So much strife in the world. So many people with not enough money, food or hope. We are very lucky, and it would be beneficial to us all to remember that. I think most of us would be far better people if we spent some time helping other people.
Go sing a song or something, I feel like spring is coming. Of course that probably means snow. I am a reverse groundhog.
Maybe this one that I heard for the first time in my car this morning. I liked his voice.
