Goals – Schmoals!

I believe I have shattered any chance of completing my April goals. I will try again in May. 🙁 This cold is just gross. I am sure we are almost done but the last days are icky. Constant choking gross cough and snotty nose and runny eyes. I had so many tissues in my pockets yesterday I looked like ….uh…I can not think of a funny word to put here! OMG it has effected my brain!!!

Last night my itchy arms went into overdrive. It was terrible. Just terrible. I ended up with ice packs on one arm and hot pads on the other to see if either would help. I suspect that maybe the culprit was the hour of sun at the dog park. I recollect this happening last year and it took a few weeks for my skin to adjust to the suns rays.  I am a fucking mess.

In the same vein – I started researching chemo induced cataracts. It is generally not the same as age related. They come on quick and progress quickly, though most people seem to only get them in one eye at a time. Yay overachieving me. So maybe a few years instead of five or ten before surgery. Oh..I wonder what happens if I stop these chemo meds? I hope I am still on them for a couple more decades but realistically I probably won’t be. I hadn’t thought of that until just now.

I am having game night on Thursday and it will be all women! And Mexican food, and sangria. I am hopeful. It is extra appropriate because my husband is in Mexico! Maybe I will buy hats. There will only be four of us because I want to play Euchre. I had so much fun playing with my husband and daughter and son in law a couple of weeks ago.

I am sorry for a long rambling list of sickness again. The cataracts really through me for a loop. I use my eyes pretty regularly,and I have really felt just horrible this week on top of that.

  1. I never know which box to comment in. Maybe I will do both today.

    I am sorry about the cataracts. That must have been a real kick in the pants to hear that on top of everything else.

    Game night sounds so exciting. What a nice theme.

    That cold sounds horrible. I hope it starts clearing up and you are feeling much better very soon.

    I bet you are right about the sun and your itchy arms. Did you know sun exposure can bring on a flare for people who have Lupus? So it wouldn’t surprise me if the sun could cause your arms to act up.

    The little dog statue cracks me up. I did a double take at first to make sure you hadn’t added another puppy to your family. As always, Frank and Dusty are something else!
