8 rads down, 20 to go.

Beautiful day, and I’m tired, in a way that’s beyond tired. Pdx Lee Anne calls it “couch world.” The couch is where I’d love to spend my day, but the world wants me “back to normal.” I wish I was. Time to unpack the schedule, back to the tried and true fatigue-beating strategies. What a drag though – I was so enjoying having normal energy.

Alicia and her mom were here yesterday, and I so didn’t want them to leave. I could just hang out and do crafty-projects for about a week. They took me to Josephine’s Dry Goods, where we got silk for the dress I’ll wear in Alicia’s wedding. Silk! Ooh la la. What a treat.

The creative part of me wants to go into a visual, non-verbal mode and play with fabrics for days and days. And days. I haven’t done that in eons. It sounds good doesn’t it?!

Oh, about my hair – it almost covers my whole head!

    We’re hoping the energy returns very soon Amanda. Glad to hear your hair is making a comeback. My coworker’s, who also battled breast cancer, hair came back in darker and thicker. She laughed and said she had to figure out how to take care of somebody else’s hair.
