Tomorrow Morning I am Florida Bound…

Darned little news from this past week…the biggest news is that I actually had my eyebrows waxed and my face derma planed! In two weeks I lost my brows and lashes, then they grew back FAST. Brows were actually bushy…real bushy. It really is amazing that it all happened so quickly. I had hair all over my face…practically had a soul patch! Yuck! But I am not complaining too much. Lou, my skin care specialist, performed magic. I just wish I could get the hair on my head to grow as quickly.

I am leaving tomorrow morning for Florida–Cee’s for a couple of days and then on to Stephanie & Sarge’s. We don’t have any plans to do much more than catch up. I found an old ticket in a word search book tonight…it was from a year and a half ago. I guess it has been that long since I have been in Florida. This is my first outing since the diagnosis and you would think I have never been out of town. I am taking a steamer trunk loaded with all kinds of clothes, many scarves, and one of the wigs. I want the girls to see the wig.

This past week I volunteered at the chemo center three days. I continue to love it. I am buying scarves at Ross’s, Marshall’s, Target, the Dollar Store, etc. These stores have just the right kind of scarves for reasonable prices. I take these scarves up to the center and when ladies ask about my scarf I volunteer to show them how to tie them…I give a little demonstration and then give them a scarf. It is so incredibly gratifying. This Friday and the Friday before I went up to the center not to volunteer but to visit with a couple of women who are on their own during their treatments and have asked if I would come by. Friday was J’s birthday. Pretty crummy I know…I had chemo on my birthday tool Bummer.

I am whipped tonight. I am trying not to nap in the afternoons and increase my walking distance. And today packing, packing, packing. Len has reminded me twice that I have to get up at 5:00 tomorrow morning.
