1. Yet another snow day. *sigh* But the roads have been cleared so I was able to go out and get my kiddo, and also a burrito. What else do I really need?
  2. I have an appointment with my oncologist tomorrow morning. I moved it up from April 27th to address the rib pain I’ve been experiencing.  If it’s bone mets I figure I need to know that asap. I’m trying not to think about it. I had a breakdown on Friday and cried all over the place. It’s hurting right now though so it’s hard to ignore. 
  3. I watched Teen Witch this morning.  It’s everything.
  4. Tonight I’m watching Big Hero 6 with Jackson, and then The Walking Dead after he goes to bed. I bought stuff to make muffins, so I may do that too.  Monday morning muffins sound lovely. 
  5. I read yesterday that there is going to be a sequel to Me Before You. So excited. I loved that book.  I’m currently reading The First Last Kiss
  6. I’m feeling very blah today. I need a hug. 
  7. Happy March!

snow day musings

  • The kiddo and I are staying inside all day. It’s a snow day here in STL.
  • On the agenda: reading, laundry, organizing Jackson’s bedroom, interneting, and baking.
  • I wish I was reading the new Moyes novella, but I was super bummed to discover that you can’t buy it in the US.  So I ordered a hard copy from the UK. I can’t wait for it to get here. 
  • The bf helped me make some improvements around the townhouse over the weekend and now it feels much more homey. I’m happy here. This was a good move.
  • The views of the city from my new place are quite nice. Especially with all the snow.
  • I’m quite bummed I don’t get to have my weekly lunch date with the bf today, but leftover tacos almost make up for it. Almost. 
  • I haven’t worn a bra in 2 ½ days and the horrible rib pain I’ve been experiencing lately is almost gone. Hmm. I guess I need a bigger size? 

let it snow

  • Grant dropped Jackson off this morning.  When he came in, a Johnny Cash tribute band was performing “Jackson” on Fox 2.  Jax flipped his shit.  He danced his little heart out, and when it was done he looked up at me and said, “I love that song!"  It was the cutest ever.
  • I have been way productive today.  We are getting snowed in today, but I got up early and have been getting the apartment cleaned. Things get pretty neglected around here on chemo weeks.
  • Chemo recovery has been rough.  I’m feeling a lot better, but still not great.  I had to skip training yesterday, but I was able to make date night, so that’s a win.
  • Thundersnow is on the way.  Since I don’t have to go anywhere, I’m excited about this.  I experienced thundersnow in Columbia once, and it was pretty impressive.
  • Snow days are fun when you have a kid.  We are going to make cookies.
