Today begins my tenth week of chemotherapy. If you've never had chemo before, let me tell you, ten weeks of this fun stuff is a long freaking time! In some ways, I look at the calendar and say "Wow, it's almost November". But in other ways, I feel like I've been on this journey for eight hundred and ninety-six days with one hundred ninety-eight thousand to go. It's a long, winding, seemingly endless road that nobody wants to be on. Sometimes, though, normal everyday life inserts itself and I'm allowed to forget that I have cancer for a little while. Last night was one of those nights. I managed to cook dinner for my family, and let me tell you, home-cooked meals do not happen often around here. I even washed the dishes! After dinner Hubby and I helped the kiddos carve their pumpkins. K wanted hers to have hearts for eyes. J designed his with a Minecraft theme. After they created the masterpieces below, my little family sat around the table and played a game of Trivial Pursuit (which we'll have to continue tomorrow because that game takes forever to play!).
Happy Halloween everyone!
