Good Afternoon Everyone! It is a beautiful day here
in sunny Arizona. It is in the low 70's. I have not been out yet but I am going for a long walk with my husband when he comes home from work today. Tomorrow morning I am going to try making the Walking
Club which I started on Saturdays with the Chandler Team. The members have kept walking every Saturday. I have not been able to join them because of the pneumonia and then because of the operation. I miss walking with them. Ann, I don't have a car and Goodyear, AZ is an hour or an hour and a half from me depending if we go the back roads or the freeway so I will not be driving to and from there when Radiation starts and going to work then. I will stay up there during the week Monday through Friday. Either my husband and daughter will bring me up there and then come after me to come home on the weekends. I cannot go to work. Anyway, I am not sure what to expect because everyone I have talked to at the Center says that I will be extremely tired during the treatments, they were. Of course everyone is different. It will be easier for me to stay there and not go to work when I start the treatments. I am still not sure when I will be starting them. I don't mean I do not have a car, my husband and I have one car which he has to use for work. Usually, he drives me to work and then I ride home with my daughter. The girl who is substituting for me now will probably substitute for me when my treatments start. I got things ready for her this time and I am getting things done for her now. Actually, I am getting things done a head of time for me also. I have the time now. It is kind of funny, I had a lady tell me once that she wanted to work in a preschool because she was an elementary teacher and she did not want to do lesson plans anymore. Apparently she did not realize that preschool teachers have to write out extensive lessons plans. At least at the school where I work, we do. So we actually do a lot of the work at home. Teaching preschool children is rewarding though and I would not trade it for the world. My daughter told me that
one of the little boys I taught last year and who is in the 3's class this year kept going home to his mother and told her that he could not find me anywhere. Of course, I was up at the Cancer Treatment Center. His mother went to our Preschool Director to find out how I was. It never occurred to me that the children I had taught would be looking to see me either on the playground or walking with my class. I guess I made more of an impression on the children that I realize. I honestly miss the children and cannot wait until April 6th when I can go back to work. Of course, I cannot lift any of the children for a while. I am sorry to go on and on about my work but I guess I miss it more than I realized I would. Sorry this turned out to be a novel!!! What is everyone else doing? I have been sticking to my mini meals and did start exercising again. My Naturopathic doctor had her secretary call me to see how I was doing. I thought that was very nice of her. Well, I will not bore all of you any longer. HAVE A GREAT REST OF YOUR FRIDAY!
