Girl Time

Since I know you want to be apprised of all my movements, I will tell you that my friend Erika is here visiting me and we got our toenails done today. Her color is unknown, mine is OPI's You're a Pisa Work. So that's taken care of.

I had my third chemo infusion today. One more to go, woot! Erika came and sat with me--I told her it was five hours and she was still willing--and we had a lovely time. I got through about a quarter of a People magazine, and the rest was Olympic-level chatting. Then I got to give a pep talk to another young woman who was there for her first treatment, and she asked me where I got my wig, and I talked to her about the whole hair issue. I felt like such an old hand.

Now we are about to watch that movie An Education. Lecia recommended it the other day, and I remembered that when Erika and I were discussing our mutual love for Peter Saaaaarsgaard. This was about hour three of chemo.

Oh and did I mention that Mom and Dad took the kids up to the mountain house for the next several days? And could life get any better? Have a good night, y'all.

Is it weird that I could tell whose toes were whose when I looked at the photo?

Wishing I were there, too...

Both sets of toes look beautiful. Hope you enjoy your friend's visit and I really hope that this round of chemo is a calm one. You are doing so well. Love ya

Let me know what you think of the movie! It's intense but, I think, an important movie for parents to see. And, I loved the cinematography.

I desperately need a pedicure but it's been so cold my motivation is low (feet aren't showing!).

Yay for a few days without the kiddos!!

Who says "could life get any better?" after chemo? You're kind of incredible.

I loved that movie An Education but find Peter Saaaarsgaaaard so creepy -- in general, not just the movie. And maybe it's creepy to comment on a stranger's blog, but I am loving reading yours --

Girl time sans kids? You are living right, my friend.

Amy said...

Nice toesies! Ya know, this will bring all the feet people to your blog. ;)

So glad you're doing well! When we talked earlier, you sounded very "up"--I think the dex is kicking in!

Marie said...

Soooo glad you are doing well and have one more session behind you!
God bless Erika!
Love you! XOXO

Very nice pedicures. Have fun with your friend. Whoo hoo, one more chemo.

Sara said...

Nice toes. Dontcha just love OPI's names? I'm wearing "Sand In My Suit" How very.

You know, if your parents wanted to swing by PA, they could just go ahead and grab my kids for a few days, too. OOps! Is my envy showing? ;)
Enjoy! Enjoy!

Loved "An Education"! I didn't want to because it had so much "indie film love" spread all over it at awards time and that usually means it will be incomprehensible but ooohh! It was fantastic ... Loved that lead character and wished I had her aplomb when I was her age.

What a great day! Have fun!

I love that you've turned chemo into a positive social occasion. You're awesome.

Here for my monthly dose of serious happy perspective from the chick who is undergoing chemo. I just agree with everyone else who says - damn girl - you're amazing!

Happy Week Ahead!
