Sorry I've been slack in posting....

July 3, 4, and 5th were super sleepy days for me. Don't know if it was the medicine, or the chemo, but every time my head hit the pillow, I just went to sleep.

I'm trying to work through this today, because I don't like sleeping so much. I'm gonna try to take care of boring stuff like my bills today, and I think our friends Virginia and Daren are coming out here for dinner at Wiseguys here in southaven. I've heard really great things about it, so hopefully it'll be good.

Just ordered the 132 set of prisma colored pencils and a sketchbook each for Gus and Hop. I love to see them doodling, Gus has always been a great drawer with a wonderful imagination. I think Hop will be similar, but he's probably gonna be drawing more trucks and balls and guitars. Which is good, he'll have his own thing going!

So Butch and Jeri are taking Gusto and Sheri to the casino tonight and tomorrow to swim at the pool and go to kid quest. I'll be good to get Gus outta the house, and I know he'll have a great time. Momma, me, and Jamie will watch Hop, he's been really god through all this, such a little funny man, always laughing and cutting up, a real joy to be around actually! Both boys have been really great, especially since I've been so tired.

Well I'm gonna rest a while, will try to add more later.

Bon Courage!


  1. Please girl, do not be hard on yourself about sleeping too much and do not apologize for not posting. You need it! It is your treatment that is causing it, just take the sleep. It will help you.

  2. found something you might like:

    "My mind then wandered. I thought of this: I thought of how every day each of us experiences a few little moments that have just a bit more resonance than other moments-- we hear a word that sticks in our mind-- or maybe we have a small experience that pulls us out of ourselves, only briefly-- we share a hotel elevator with a bride in her veils, say, or a stranger gives us a piece of bread to feed to the mallard ducks in the lagoon; a small child starts a conversation with us in a Dairy Queen-- or we have an episode like the one i had with the M & M cars back at the Husky station.

    And if we were to collect these small moments in a notebook and save them over a period of months we would see certain trends emerge from our collection-- certain voices would emerge that have been trying to speak through us. we would realize that we have been having another life altogether, one we didn't even know was going on inside us. and maybe this other life is more important than the one we think of as being real-- this clunky day-to-day world of furniture and noise and metal. so just MAYBE it is these small moments which are the true story-making events of our lives."

    -Douglas Coupland in LIFE AFTER GOD

  3. Wow Chere that is really wonderful! 'll definitely be thinking on this.

  4. No need to ever apologize for sleeping! Glad to hear that things are going well! Those boys are great kids!

    The passage by Douglas Coupland is rather profound and I think right on target. I really do think the living ends up being the mundane parts of our lives.
