Well, Friday stunk for lots of reasons, but I really just felt pooped on. Ironic with rectal cancer don'tyathink???? But Saturday.....Saturday was good. It normally wouldn't be considered good, but it was. I felt good, my hair looked great, and it was a BEAUTIFUL day. (Note of the hair - You know how when you have a hair appointment and that day your hair looks great so you cancel the hair appointment and then it looks like crap until your next haircut that you can't get an appointment for until you look like a total freak? SOLUTION - Threaten your hair that you are going to shave it off. It is working for me! Anyway, I digress.) So, it is a beautiful day, I feel good, my hair is still here, and have an eye appointment because I have been having some problems since chemo with my contacts. I decide that I am going to go by myself to the appointment. Grant is still recovering and Jane offered to help out so I could go. So, off I go.....the appointment went well. I got some options, and I looked, just looked, at new glasses. Mine are 10 year old - little dated to say the LEAST! I kept putting glasses off thinking that with being pregnant and all that I should wait in case my eyesight changes. It never did - such luck. And now with chemo, should I really invest?!?!?! (Please don't answer that.) Anyway, I digress again. So, I am driving up and I start to drive a little too fast in Grant's car, I roll down all the windows, open the sunroof, turn on the AC full blast, and cranked up the stereo. You are thinking, "Wow, you look like an OLD TEENAGER." I was and it was FUN! I did the same on the way home. I drove by the market and smelled all the market smells, I yelled at stupid drivers, and I sang to the radio. I got home at about 2:00 starving so I ate ALL of the remaining Mac and Cheese that was delivered the day before and took a rest until the kids got up. We finished the day with an impromptu dinner at the neighbors with crab and salmon - AWESOME! It would have been perfect it Nolan would have only gotten up once that night, but he didn't. Oh well, I guess I will have to settle on almost perfect. :) Today we went to Thomas the Tank Engine at the Snoqualmie Railway Museum. Nolan stayed with auntie Jane and it was just Mason, Grant and I. Mason did awesome. He loves Thomas. We have it on video, bought the "professional photos", temporary tattoos, and all. I let Mason touch Thomas - he felt so special. I was so proud of him. He waited in line so many times, played nicely with others, and followed directions beautifully. Two great days together - my son's face when he touched Thomas - priceless.
