|Front Opening Nightdresses|
Next up: some front-opening, loose fitting blouses to wear at home, after surgery, while recovering. And maybe some satin pillowcases. I read that satin pillowcases might help minimize hair loss - I don't know how true that is, I'm fully expecting to lose my hair after chemo starts, but satin pillowcases sound luxurious, don't they? And I do have some satin in The Stash! Might as well use it!
In other news: It RAINED today! Wooo Hoooo! Woke up to a real, honest-to-goodness rain shower! Of course, as it usually happens whenever it rains in any quantity, here, there were flash floods, flooded intersections, flooded freeways, accidents, snarled traffic, uprooted trees, etc. The morning commute was awful - it look me almost 2 1/2 hours to get to the office (normally a 1 hour commute). But, it RAINED! (We are in a record-breaking 4-year drought, so rain is very needed.)
I went to the pharmacy today to pick up my prescription refills, and for some unknown reason, I only had to pay for one of them! And much less than what I normally pay, too! They do say "don't look a gift horse in the mouth", but I questioned the pharmacist about it, but she said that's how it showed up! She didn't know why. Maybe I'll receive a bill in the mail, later? Maybe the insurance plan made an adjustment? Maybe they decided I deserved a break?!
On my way home from work, I stopped by the grocery store to pick up more cat food, and a few other items: disinfectant wipes, air freshener, trash bags, 2 boxes of saltine type crackers (salt-free tops), and some bananas. Afterwards, I stopped by a friend's house, at her invitation, because she had prepared some dinner for me to take home! She has told me not to worry about cooking when I have my treatments, that she will prepare food for me and send it to me through her husband, as she doesn't drive. Have I mentioned that I am blessed to have such caring, compassionate, generous friends?
I also put some gas to the car, before I came home.
Tonight, my daughter is coming home. I will go to pick her up in a short while (she's in the air as I type). Tomorrow morning, I have my consultation with the surgeon. I am a little scared, but I know I have all the thoughts and prayers of all my family and friends to hold me up.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The Stash!
- Friends who make me dinner!
- Rain for our parched land.
- A safe commute to work and back.
- Daughter is coming home!
- Free medications!
How was your day? What are you grateful for today?
