Spa Day #6

Spa Day #6 is Friday the 17th!!!  Am I excited?  You betcha!!!  My bags are packed and I'm ready to go...just need to finish this post on Thursday night and get some sleep first.

This will be the last Spa Day where I get the full treatment.  After this, the Friday treatments will be only with Herceptin and without a lot of the not-so-nice side effects.  Hooray!!!  I imagine I'll have most if not all of the month of January to get acclimated to feeling good before the radiation therapy will start.  Once I know that schedule, I'll post it here on the blog.

I've been creating a lot of artsy things lately--shadow boxes, Christmas cards, framed mini watercolors, and working in my journal.  I'm taking a lot of that with me tomorrow.  I have a shadow box to finish "snowing", cards to finish and get into addressed envelopes, and my art journal--well, I have tons of ideas for the blank pages.  And since I hope to start a new one in January, I'd better get this one finished up!

I made peanut butter cookies this evening.  Yum!!!  Soft and chewy, just the way I like them.

Not much planned for my Portland trip tomorrow other than going down and back.  Christmas shopping is done.  There's not much I need for me, though I would love some new pajamas for Christmas.  Hmmm, that might mean a trip to the Mall after all, although I'd rather find a nice small store on a quiet street somewhere...maybe Cuddledown in Freeport has something I'd like.  Guess I'll have to check their website before heading out.

I'm expecting to feel kind of yucky by the first of the week for a week and a half or two weeks.  Christmas will be a quiet day, then.  And by New Year's I should be feeling better!  At least I know what to expect and know that there is an end in sight!!!

Happy Spa Day to me!
