Today, I went to the office. My supervisor and colleagues were surprised to see me; they thought I'd take the day off to spend with daughter. But daughter had to work on-line from home as previously arranged with her job, so I knew she would be busy. Besides, I will be taking a day of vacation tomorrow and on Monday, too.
During my morning break, I went down to the farmers market and bought some croissants; an almond one for me and a chocolate one for daughter. During my lunch break, I went to the bank. And on my way home from work, I stopped at the library to return some books and to borrow a book I had placed on hold. It's a book on breast cancer that someone had recommended to me. So I was able to run a couple of errands, as well.
It was so lovely to come home and receive a hug from daughter! It was so nice to have her make me a cup of tea! I gave her the chocolate croissant I had bought for her and we talked about our day, and a few other things, just like we always do. Later, she did some of her studying (she has a presentation project due on Monday evening, when she goes back, and a test later in the week) while I went on-line for a bit and spoke with a friend who called.
Dinner was leftovers from what my friend had prepared for us on Tuesday. I think she gave us so much food that there's more left over for tomorrow, as well!
Tomorrow, I have made a couple of appointments to go with daughter to attend to a few things; paperwork, etc., so that things will be taken care of when I won't feel like doing much after treatment starts (I expect I shan't feel too good once chemo starts; been reading up possible side effects; I just hope I won't get any of the more severe side effects).
Today, I am grateful for:
- A productive day
- Hugs from daughter
- Good friends
- Cooler weather
How was your Thursday? What did you do to celebrate the day?
