So that means I have the next 2 days off and a whole lot to get done. When I get a day off and I’m not sick, it’s time to make up for all I didn’t get done last week and then some. The week after chemo is lost. I have no energy and feel sick most of the time. So when I do start feeling better I think I’m Wonder Woman and I try to get it all done in 2 days. That means laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning the house and trying to find time to have lunch with my dad and get him to Walmart to people watch while I shop. It’s the highlight of his week…or bi-week. I don’t take him out on chemo week. Shoot, I don’t take me out. Anyway, tomorrow, after over a month I will be getting my nails done. Yippee! From there I have to take Rylee to help a fellow Scout work on his Eagle Project. Home to clean, sort through one or two of the many totes from my dads house, laundry, clean and oh yea, dinner. AND I have to pick Rylee up around 4ish. Lol I’m sure you really don’t care about all that…I think it was more of a “will I get it done” list to hold me accountable. It doesn’t take much to make me tired these days. Ask Melanie…
My sweet daughter and granddaughter brought me lunch today. After we ate I invited them to come ride along on my daily lock check (making sure all storage units are secure and no ones moved out). We got going on the golf cart, turned the first corner and it died. So plugged it in and walked the rest of the way. Up and down each isle and in each building. By the time we got back to the golf cart it was charged enough to get us back to the office. We walked in and I started sweating like a race horse. I felt like I was going to be sick. I was clammy and yawning a lot. (That’s something I do when I feel sick, but I don’t know why) I drank some of my water and just sat there until the feeling passed. I’m glad Mel was there because when I feel like that it’s kinda scary. I’m no spring chicken ya know. 🤨
I had talked to a friend about doing a short term disability Leave of Absences instead of Intermittent Leave because it takes nothing to make me feel like 💩! So I decided to call and see what it would take to do LOA and I was told I didn’t have short or long term disability insurance. I’m not sure how that happened because I know it’s something I intended to sign up for and now I’m not able to get it until mid November. I know at my age to get ALL thats offered, medical, optical, dental, long and short term disability. So for now I will just continue to work when I can and when I can’t, I can’t. I just hope my boss understands. He’s been awesome so far. I know it puts a strain on him when I call out but I don’t know what else to do. I’m doing the best I can.
So I’m going to keep it short tonight, get some sleep and tackle that list up there in the morning. I’ll let you know how it goes. Terry would read this and tell me to take it easy but easy doesn’t get stuff done! Bless his heart. He works 9 to 10 hours a day, takes care of 40+ bee hives, takes care of me, with the help of Rylee, he’s been trying to get his garage ready to extract honey and take care of the house when I can’t. The man deserves an award I swear! My hero!
My blessing for today was having lunch with Melanie and Lia. Thanks Mel. I love you!

you are a superstar 🌟 I assume you would qualify for FMLA but it sucks that you don’t have short term insurance to help pay for that time off. Unless you have a whole lot of sick or vacation days piled up to compensate. Like you said you can only do what you can do! Just don’t overdo it so that you don’t end up having to take more days off in the long run. Continued prayers 🙏
