Insanity has it's privileges..or perks...or is it quirks?? lol

I ended up having a caffeine rush so intense that I didn't leave the house yesterday to meet friends for drinks and dinner, instead I am doing some kind of mad "nesting"...a term that many Mother's will understand exactly...so I ran my oxygen depleted butt up and down the stairs all day long doing laundry...who knew my Son's room was going to be an exercise in itself just to get to all the dirty clothes that have piled up...I have a full bag of clothes to give to a friend who has a younger son than mine, I have 3 full bags of clothes to drop off at the good will and I had a sore body! lol

Dinner time rolls around and Jim gets the call from the lake the crappies are hitting as well as the large mouth bass...fish? time with the wife? fish? time with the wife?....oh let's drag the wife out to the lake too....I was a disgruntled housewife and went under duress.....did I catch any fish??? NO! But I did manage to hook some very large trees, 2 to be exact and I did remove quite a bit of lake debris, like large branches....I did get some comedy relief watching the DH almost fall out of the boat while standing on his toes to release my line from one of the trees...GOD forbid I lose a new lure....something called a blade dancer! I got your blade dancer darling! lol lol lol

Thank God one of my Girlfriends was there so we decided since I was starting chemo we needed to toast to that with a bottle of champagne...normally it's this friends that we toast to everything with a bottle of tequila...but champagne was definitely in order...I had one glass and suddenly I didn't feel like such a hostage at the lake...gotta love your best girlfriends! lol lol lol

In about 2 hours I will start a new chemo treatment plan....crossing my fingers that this one will work this time...I am chomping at the bit to get started...I want to begin so I know when it will end...sucha control freak I know! lol I know nothing of this new treatment, it's side effects or duration...that will all be explained to me while visiting with Dr. Serious after the blood draw and before the chemo....least it won't be as intense as the AC&T route!

So with my warped sense of humor the only thing that is going through my mind is........."What to wear? What to wear?" lol lol lol Oh yes even a bald chick with small sprouts of hair can still be a Fashionista Diva!!! Pink for Breast Cancer or cammo for the lil warrior in me.....decisions! decisions! Well, at least we know it won't be a hair situation...I will post a recent pick of me with my lush quarter inch to half inch of hair soon! lol lol lol It first started to come in resembling a schnauzer..but with the last few days out in the sun..the tips are starting to look blonde again...My Jim said something about looking "Fiber Optic" Funny guy huh?? lol

Wish me luck!

Love,
K.

Good luck today! As for that lure in the tree, as a fisherman I must tell you, we will do anything to save a lure from a desiny in trees or stuck in a rock. We become quite attached!! 'Fiber Optic', you could start a whole new wave of hair possibilities with that name. Very shiek~

Hi Kim, I've written comment's a couple of time's but never introduced myself, my name is Amanda and it's very nice to meet you!! I must say that you are one of my hero's. Your word's engulf me, I hope that's the right word LOL, let's just say that I have never met anyone who can take darkness and turn it into sunshine! I know in my heart that you will beat this demon you are fighting because the Lord need's you here to help those who aren't as strong. ( Me being one of those people)May I ask you where you hide your wing's when you're out in public? *smile's* You are in my thought's daily Kim, May God bless and hold you and your family close to him!

tendernoggle said...

carlene

ldybutterfly1128 said...

Kim, you are so brave.  I truly admire your courage and strength.  I will be thinking of and praying for you today.  Keep your chin up, as you have been.  The Lord is your Healer and we are all praying for Him to take this disease from you.  We need more people like you here.  Even though I do not know you personally, I am comforted by your words. It is your voice that encourages so many and I admire that in you.  Keep talkin'...we're all listening!  You are never alone.  God bless you, Kim.  Love, Jamie

An evening on the lake, with champagne and a girlfriend is better than any therapy I know!  Good luck today!

I suppose I should quit fussing about my 24 inch long white hairs huh?  But I can't!  They're so.... white!  Grrrrrrrrrr!
My mom sees the dr. on Thursday for tests on her stomach.  She is so worried that her cancer has returned.  I suggested that it may just be ulcers, but I think I was trying to convince myself more than I was her.  She laughs when she talks about it, but I know she is laughing for my sake.  I feel selfish but I am so scared and I don't know how to be brave about this.  Why can't I be like you?
You are always in my prayers Lilchit.

CRacking up at your fashion dilemma... i don't "get dressed" I "costume myself" for different characters that I'm playing each day. If there's a teacher's conference, I'm going for my conservative maternal look... trying to land a sale at work, I'm dressing professional and confident... and so on and so forth. I don't know what qualifies as Chemo Chic, but I hope you found it...
I think if everyone could have your good humor in times of trouble, the world would be a much better place...
*hugs*

Hi Kim,
Just wanted to say hello and hope that your chemo treatment went well today.  I have never left you a comment before because I don't know if I can put into words adequately what I want to say. But here goes anyway..........you are truly amazing and I admire you tremendously.  I wish I could have half of your fight, courage and strength. Your attitude towards cancer and life are incredible and inspirational.  You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Christine

lisabobisa69 said...

YOu are my first blog.  I am recently just graduated from Beginning Computer remedial 101 for the third time.   I guess I can relate to your perserverance.  I was not sure what a blog is so I took a chance and here I am.  I will say that because I played tennis yesterday with another woman who happened to bring pink tennis balls, my awareness of breast cancer is more peaked than that of global warming.   I hope that you will be feeling better soon, and I applaud your sense of humor.  By the way, am I the bloggee or the blogger?  Let me know.... lisa

swferstl said...

I would say dye your cammo PINK, girlfriend! Why the hell not?? Or tie a tiny bow to the beret. There is a beret...right???!!! Gotta be for the right affect! hehe...
Hmmm...then again...you COULD always do that bow in fiber optics! :-))))
Sooo BAD! Laughter is good, gal...laughter is good!
