This week actually felt like a "normal" week for me, whatever normal is anymore. Remember before cancer when I use to only work 2-3 shifts a week and then did normal things the rest of the week? Well this week felt like one of those weeks. I forgot how nice normal is.
Of course my days off have been spent doing normal stuff like going to the supermarket, 4 loads of laundry in one day, cooking dinner, eating popsicles on hot days (oh wait that's everyday), finally unpacking my suit case (only to get to repack it again in 1 week!!!), changing sheets, washing dishes, a Tj Maxx/Homegoods run, going to the dentist, reading a book in the middle of the afternoon and oh yes, spending all afternoon at the pool with my friends.
I like normal. I miss normal. I'm ready for normal to return for good.
Please go away so I can get back to my normal life.
I've been patient with you long enough (like a very long 3 years),
PS. My nurse's and I are so ready for the Rio Olympics. I can't wait watch our US athletes over the next few weeks. Go USA! Looking at this picture makes me so happy because my hair is finally almost the length it was 3 years ago when I lost it, as you can see in my blog header picture which was taken just a few days before my diagnosis.
