I know I haven't posted all week, but I decided to not bore anyone with actually what I do in a normal life (not involving chemo). No, I swear - my life is actually really exciting. I go to work, I watch TV shows, go grocery shopping, workout...jealous yet? :) Okay, all jokes aside, I am doing well! I have been LUCKY to live my normal life and do things such as grocery shop and I'm being very sincere when I say that. I have had a great week at work and have enjoyed seeing my co-workers, they always cheer me up. I have worked out pretty much everyday since Sunday and tonight I even ran on the treadmill for a short little spurt in my workout routine. It was definitely a bit harder, but I haven't ran in over one month, so it was a good little push for me.
This weekend I will be getting my massage that I was forced to reschedule due to not feeling well last Saturday. I am going to go to a haunted house tomorrow night and I'm so very excited for that. I love haunted houses and feel that it's a must to go to one during Halloween season. So, just so you are aware, when I'm 90 - I'll be going to one. I will also be making a homemade organic apple pie...yep, I'm a professional baker now - my dad and I make a great baking team! And I will end the lovely weekend with a visit from my beautiful sister...and we will be going on a hike on Sunday!
There's the weekly breakdown and I will update next week more frequently since it's time for chemo session number 3 on Monday, October 19th! Oh, in case you were wondering, I still have hair. The strand has now become plural - strands are coming out. I'm not shaving it until I begin to go bald in areas or begin to leave clumps of hair in places - that would just be embarrassing and have to admit, rather gross! :) But I'm staying positive and am going to stick to voting my hair will just thin during chemo.
And yes, how could I forget - chemo session number 3 is a big deal because I'm getting scanned after this session. The scan is going to tell how many sessions I need and how effective treatment has been to date. So yes, my vain side wants you to pray I don't lose my hair, BUT I do want you to pray MOST IMPORTANTLY that chemo is KILLING THE CANCER CELLS in my little body and will NEVER return. Thank you and goodnight - I send my love to everyone! <3

So, I've changed my blog appearance and am doing weird things to stay busy. It's kind of nice and refreshing to me to not do anything, because I usually accomplish a day's worth of activities by 10:00a.m. everyday. I cannot stand to sleep in and waste days away...large pet peeve of mine. Moral of the story is "being sick" gives me the opportunity to do things unlike myself. And hey, maybe that isn't a bad thing because I don't find myself as stressed out as I used to be.
I'm feeling SO MUCH BETTER! Oh my gosh, Friday and majority of the day yesterday was spent feeling super icky. Yes, I said the word icky. I am going to get myself out of the house today and do something fun and I am going to go on a walk...and cannot wait to get a little bit of exercise in me!
I decided to be silly and post this picture to make everyone laugh since my postings lately have been so Debbie Downer-ish. So, everyone knows I have a minor obsession with Britney Spears, don't judge, I bet you dance to her still too. Anyways, my friend Jen made this picture for me a long time ago with her fabulous photo shop skills...I think it's funny and would give everyone a much needed laugh, and I feel like laughing today.
