Not a lot is going on this week. I'm just doing the mom-thing. I've been getting a workout in each day. Tomorrow morning Isabelle is going to get honored at the school flag assembly for her all 4 report card. I haven't been able to make it to all the assemblies this year...they are on Fridays and I've had chemo on a few of them.
I am excited that we seem to have found someone to help us with the housework. We did try a cleaning lady over the summer as I was recuperating from surgery, but she apparently didn't want to work for us. She was supposed to come on Mondays, but didn't show up the second day she was scheduled. I called her and she came a few days later. As she was leaving, I asked if that was going to be her new day and she said she would call. She never did. I left a couple messages, but she never got back to me. She does our neighbor's house, and when Eric saw her in the neighborhood a couple weeks ago, he asked her if she was coming back. Guess what she told him? Yep, that's right. She'd call. Needless to say, that never happened. It was really strange to be kind of "fired" by your cleaning lady. Not that I have a lot of experience with cleaning ladies. I usually can keep up with it on my own. But this is a perk of my cancer, I guess. Eric and I just feel a bit overwhelmed trying to keep it up, and he's willing to get the help. I'm not going to let that opportunity (spousal consent) pass me up! Anyway, a friend referred me to her cleaning lady and she came over today and we really like her. She starts next week! There's nothing like a clean house to lift the spirits even higher.
There is not much more to report today. But I didn't want people to get worried with me not posting 2 days in a row and thing something was wrong. I'm feeling okay, just busy being a mom.
My prayer requests:
- Against illness. I'm immune suppressed right now, and Jean-Marc has a cold. He isn't suffering too bad, but his nose started running today after a couple days of being a little hoarse. Pray he gets well ad that no one else gets it.
- I feel like a broken record, but do pray that the chemo be effective against this disease. I get paranoid that maybe its not working because I'm not wiped out by the chemo. Did I get enough of the poison/medicine?
