New wig and new foster dog!

I had a very peaceful pet sitting job this time, some of the last ones were stressful and I didn’t know why (it was the cancer but I hadn’t been diagnosed as of yet). I couldn’t get online at all so I went to Ollie’s and got a book by Beverley Lewis – she writes the Amish Stories – and read the whole book! I also did a lot of crocheting, praying, sitting outside enjoying cool breezes and sunshine dancing in the trees, and the people skiing and boating. And one night I slipped into the pool after putting the dogs to bed. All that said, it is good to be home!

Just before I left for the job we got a new foster dog named Jacob. He is a cute Shelty but he ain’t the brightest bulb in the pack!




Went to Radiation today, I am starting to feeling some burning and pain. I have some lotions for this but I see the Doc tomorrow and will see if there is a stronger pain lotion I can get.

This afternoon I went to Creative Images and got a new wig! It is a very dark blonde with red and dark brown streaks. The style reminds me of how my hair was last summer only it was blonderer then! I also had the lady trim the long dark blonde wig and thin it out a bit – I’m use to thin thick hair!

The bangs are flat


The bangs are curled with a curly iron which they say can’t be done. Never underestimate the power of a blonde! LOL

This past week I took a thumb drive to the place that makes my tee shirts and had some short sleeve ones made. They seem to be a tool that God uses to bring women across my path who are in need of a person who understands what they are going through. I now have a new young friend from Elizabeth City, NC whom I met in a Thrift store in Chesapeake, Va (I didn’t feel like going in there but there was nudge in my heart so I went).

Hope you all had a great holiday vacation!

Relay for Life

Relay for Life was wonderful except for the fact that when it came to the speakers, they were all long winded! Honesly, we stood for over an hour and my legs were totally killing me something fierce but the time it came to do the walk!

The walk itself was very moving to me, people lined the the edge of the walkway clapping and cheering as we Survivors and Caregivers did the first lap. I was okay at first intil I saw saddness and pity in the eyes of some people cheering us on. Then things began to race in my mind – the announcement that one of the volunteers mother had a relapse of her cancer and died this past Wednesday, the Banner for “Principal Woody Koonce” whom I knew and was the brother of a friend, all the bags that lined the path with names of people who had died of cancer, of how once you have cancer it is likely to come back, and then they played the song “You Lift Me Up” by Josh Groban – that in itself tore me up! It was all I could do to keep from crying!

It really was shocking to see the amount of Survivors and Caregivers there were in that lap! Way too many!

One funny thing that happened was – a lady at my dinner table asked me if the two caregivers sitting with me were my sons! I laughed and said “One is my son and the other is m husband!” That made my husband feel good when I told him!
