I'm Home...But Kind Of Out Of Commision

It is so nice to be home, to sleep in my bed, to have my kitchen with all of my fun accessories, to drive my own car and to wear something different than I have the past 3 months.

My suitcases are unpacked, the laundry is done, I've already made 2 stops to my favorite Sprouts Supermarket and I've sorted the gob's of mail.  I think I'm just about back to my life here in Phoenix.    

My Internet however is out of commission because the company  I had went under.  Since the new company thinks it will be 2-3 weeks until they can bring our complex service, I might myself be out of commission when it involves blogging.  However come next week I'll myself be out of commission as I start another round of chemo.  I do have my lovely library across the street where I type, however it's kinds of spotty here.

Last week during chemo my cousin brought his darling month old baby to visit.  It was fun to visit with them and to hold this cute munchkin.
My nurse in MVY made me the sweetest OVC blanket.  I've never seen fabric with OVC ribbons.  I love it!
Thursday we left for SLC.  I'm pretty sure that was the quickest 5 hour trip I've ever experienced because I slept the entire way.  When we got to SLC everyone went to a play while I tried to watch a Utah football game, but instead succumbed to a chemo coma.  The chemo coma lasted clear until Sunday morning.  I spent nearly all my time on the couch or in bed while everyone else had fun (pout, pout).

I was disappointed that I was unable to go shop at Swiss Days with mom and Tenielle, but it was probably a good thing that I didn't go because of all the germs swarming around crowds.  They did do a little Christmas Shopping for me though.

My dear friend Jenny came to visit me on Friday.  She sat on my bed and we talked.  I had to reassure her that I was listening to her, but that I couldn't keep my eyes open.  It really is so strange how chemo takes over me.  It is always good to visit with my oldest friend.  We discussed that we want to travel abroad in the Spring.  I plan on being healthy as a horse come next Spring.
