Not this past weekend but the weekend before, if you recall, I was feeling quite wasted and I was too tired on Saturday night to meet with my Splurge Club. A sure sign that I'm not feeling so good. I had a pretty quiet weekend. My main activity was helping Kevin put together the gadzillion pieces that made up our new tv stand. I was a little surprised when we opened the box to see so many pieces and a really BIG manual. As you can see, we finished it. It looks a little better than the red milk crates, don't you think?
My feeling wasted that weekend was explained by my sore throat on Monday. By Tuesday it was a sore throat and a sore left neck gland ... along with general over-fatigue. While the worst of the sore gland only lasted a day (I stayed home one day to sleep and try to prevent a cold from taking hold), I pretty much felt super tired all week. I had trouble getting through the days ... keeping my eyes open. I was feeling a bit of panic for having accepted Carol's invitation to the Persephone play on Wednesday night but it wasn't too long and I was able to enjoy it. In fact, I REALLY enjoyed it! It was such a good play. Everything about it was good ... the cast, the story, the humour, the set, the lighting, the music. Thursday night I told Kevin that I might have to cancel our weekend plans because I was feeling so crappy. And then, on Friday, I didn't feel so bad. Hmmmm ... So I went to the card party on Friday night. I had a great time and felt just fine. On Saturday we went to the Hole in the Wall restaurant wayyyyyy out in the boonies to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. It was a lovely evening and again, I felt just fine. Good, in fact. I did get lots of sleep on the weekend which I probably needed but I usually get lots of sleep most weekends but still feel too tired during the week.
What I'm most happy to report is that even though the weather is the worst ... man, it's COLD ... I feel better than I've felt since ... maybe ... November. Did I feel this good in November? Maybe not. Maybe I haven't felt this good in a few years. Maybe. My memory doesn't serve. Both yesterday and today I didn't struggle to get out of bed in the morning ... well, at least not any more than many people. I've been able to keep my eyes open all day at work and I haven't felt wasted when I get home in the evening either!! For me, this is very exciting! VERY exciting! Feeling like this makes me almost forget the awful stuff that has been foremost in my mind for two years now. It isn't until just before bed when I remember that I have to take my Tamoxifen and I'm reminded. It feels sooooooo good to not think about breast cancer ALL ... THE ... FRIGGIN' ... TIME!!!
