I’m late writing Day 10. I must write my Friday posts on the weekend because I can.
That sunset. It’s at the farm. I didn’t get away for long, but there’s something about different sunsets. Different scenery.
I needed something different.
The boys left on Friday and little bit and I followed with an ice chest full of food Saturday morning. My plan was to cook for my in laws while I was there. It’s nice to serve someone else after having been served so well these past few months.
Little bit and I missed the last trip over to Louisiana because of her basketball schedule. This weekend is in between basketball and baseball/softball so we could get away.
I came back today, Sunday, because I had to return for my morning radiation tomorrow. And because my precious friend and pastor had a big birthday today and I got to celebrate with her and a few friends. It was so nice to be in someone’s backyard with more than just my family.
By the time we fought the insane “all of Texas” spring break traffic, we were at the farm by 1 pm. The kids ran off to work on the continued restoration efforts, the well house and saddle house are now up, and I worked inside.
We were so lucky to get to see Bray’s brother and sister who came in to help too. So Saturday night was a virtual family reunion. Remember, we hadn’t seen any of them over Christmas because we were on preventative lockdown (which of course failed!).
I brought plenty of food so I pulled together an appetizer platter – simple but impressed the farm neighbors who rode down with their dog on the Polaris. Everyone was in high spirits and laughing.
Sunday it was more breakfast and lunch cooking and then tidying up. After lunch, I could tell I was sunk. I hadn’t slept well and was crashing fast.
So I bid my family adieu and headed back to H-town so I would have time before the birthday dinner. I got through two more new podcasts and got a good Voxer chat in with my best friend.
All in all, the weekend away was what I needed. This week is my last week of “full breast” radiation and then we move into the focused booster where the tumor was removed. I’ll be at the halfway mark on Tuesday!
