It was also International Women's Day, commemorating the movement for women's rights. I didn't take the day off from work, but I did refrain from going shopping today. I don't know if not buying anything for one day really does anything, though, because it simply means the shopping will get done on another day, unless people decide not to buy those items at all. In my case, the item I need to buy is one of my medications, so it's not something I can be without buying; I need it for my health.
Wednesday was a quietly productive day for me. I worked on my office stuff for a good portion of the day. In the afternoon, I took a nap on the living room sofa. Later in the evening, I did the load of laundry I didn't do on Tuesday and hung it up to dry (it will dry overnight). I also did the dishes and cleaned the litter box.
I also trimmed my finger nails and, for the first time in over a year, my finger nails are no longer discolored from the chemo! The chemo had turned my nails a purplish brown. I have now trimmed off all the discolored finger nails. I still have some discoloration on my toe nails, however (on the big toes).
|No More Chemo Discoloration!|
On Wednesday, I was grateful for:
- Rights that were fought for and achieved by generations of women who persisted
- The strong women in my own life - my grandmother, my mother, my daughter
- Being able to work from home
- Finger nails are clear of chemo discoloration
- Daily exchange of emails with a friend
Breakfast was cereal (cornflakes) and a banana; lunch was pasta with fish curry and an orange for dessert; dinner was a salad (lettuce, cucumber, carrots) with slices of roast chicken breast, sprinkled with raw cashews; grapes for dessert:
