Monday's Doings

I had a fairly productive day on Monday, as far as the office work was concerned.  I both emailed and phoned my supervisor to go over the status of various assignments and also to inform her that I am almost done with my current assignment and to request additional work.  She will assign me a new project during the course of this week, she said. 

However, I have started to feel some side effects from Friday's chemo session.  Bone/muscle aches and some lower abdominal cramping.  I took some Tylenol for the pain, which is what I was told to do, and dozed on the sofa with a heating pad for the cramping.  At least I wasn't nauseated.  But the aches and pains meant I didn't feel like doing anything much, such as my sewing.  So I had a quiet day apart from the office work.

Daughter, too, had a quiet, restful day.  She did one of her homework assignments, took the trash cans to the curb for me and generally kept me company. 

Today, I am grateful for:
- Getting the office work done without any problems
- An afternoon nap on the sofa
- Relatively mild side effects
- A quiet, restful day
- Daughter keeping me company

How was your Monday?  Did you have a good start to your week?


  1. Sending good wishes that your side effects don't get too severe. So nice that your daughter is there with you ... She's a pleasant distraction to keep your focus off the discomfort. Had a nice Monday ... Am turning half of our guest room into a craft space for me and I'm tickled pink! Hope you're feeling better today!

    1. Thank you for the good wishes, Carolyn. Having daughter home is definitely nice. Ooh, a new craft space for you! That sounds nice! Have fun setting it up. Looking forward to seeing how you set it all up.

  2. Sorry you are having side effects. Praying they will go away real soon. Proud daughter is there to help you and most of all, keep you company..Feel better soon.
    I am doing some spring cleaning today..It is warm and sunny, so decided to wash some curtains and hang them in the wind to dry..

    1. Thank you for the prayers, Judy. Glad you have a warm sunny day in which to do your spring cleaning.
