Oh, I do love the new iOS keyboard with the new swipe down ability. It’s just clever.
I have an iPad now instead of my android devices so that is the only thing that upgraded but it almost makes me want an iPhone.
I have had a busy chaotic weekend. Saturday I had two overlapping events planned. A Cancer Survivor Retreat from 10am to 3pm and a 2nd Anniversary, fundraising for our new bigger location picnic for the gym I go to. I invited my niece Hayley to go with me to both. She works out with me sometimes and I thought she might have fun at the first picnic too so it made sense.
So 9:30am on Saturday morning I was off to pick up Hayley. We went to the first event it was very nice,met some lovely people, painted an ugly birdhouse, Hayley painted a picture and discovered she likes those painting events so I will find another one for us, and had a wonderful talk with a woman who I am hoping will email me so we can compare notes and commiserate on our cancer lifestyles. Then Hayley and I had to leave early to hit the gym picnic,which was at that point okay with me, because I was HUNGRY! I will add my input about vegetarian friendly food if I am still working with the Cancer support organization next year. So we swung by a grocery store and picked up veggie burgers and veggie dogs in case there was not any vegetarian friendly food available at the next picnic. I will also tell them to get more banana cake! OMG the banana cake was so good!
Got there, threw my burger on the grill, bought Hayley a burger, sat down, and my phone rang. It was my husband saying come home now! Electric panel is possessed. That started the next 7 hour odyssey of paying out a months pay to get a new panel and all new circuits inside and out. Wee……. As a strange side note, when we pulled out the washer and dryer for easier access to the panel we discovered we had a gas dryer! We had NO idea!
Then today we had a 2:00 pm showing of The Book of Mormon! It was excellent. I love the fact that we went to a matinee and our seats were just perfect. Something more casual and relaxing about it and I was wide awake and my mind was less cluttered.
I have been sick since my chemo last Friday, EIGHT days ago. I do not know why. Sometimes it seems to happen. But it makes me unhappy.
I have my quarterly CT scan tomorrow so a lunch of barium will add the proverbial icing on the cake (I typed cats for some reason) and hey I may hit that five pound weight loss I have been looking for for the last year. 🙂 Or I will eat cake for dinner.
I made a mushroom gravy for dinner to go on some boiled potatoes to get some food in me that hopefully won’t make me too sick tomorrow. I was not happy with the results but my husband said it’s better than the stuff I buy, so I guess that is okay. Certainly healthier. I will try again. Mushroom gravy is nice because it has kind of meaty heartiness to it so you can add it to many things for a quick meal while still being really healthy.
And everything just keeps spinning around.
