I spent 3 days up at Mike’s for Thanksgiving. He has some friends from Alaska visiting. We had a good feast and a nice hike the next day. I headed home yesterday as he needed to pack to be working out of state again for a couple of weeks, and he planned to leave very early this morning. I was wearing pretty much all my layers of sweatshirt/sweater/jacket while up there, and begging for a fire in the woodstove even during the day. I made one the first morning I was there, and after that the guys jumped up to make the fire whenever I started for the wood stove. I’m out of practice. A house can be expected to smell like smoke some when using a wood stove. Right?
I’ve just been hanging out with the cats other than that. And also healing. I go in Tuesday to start the meetings and simulation for the radiation. I don’t know if that is when they figure out the settings, or when they decide if I’ll need drugs to (mentally) get through this. Actually, most of this has been much easier than I could have expected. I almost feel like an imposter when I mention I’m a cancer survivor. So, I will report here after the appointments on Tuesday. I do believe I am in a radiation study where I will receive fewer but stronger treatments.
Driving back down to Mesa from Williams I started out in several heavy layers of clothes. First order of business when I got out of the car here was to peel out of most of them as it was 70* here. The cats were happy to see me. Tomorrow I plan to drive out to where I’m moving the RV in a couple of weeks and make sure all is still ok on that end. Then more sorting and moving and getting rid of stuff in the storage units. Plans only go out to December 15 at this point, the date I’m planning to move. After that, I’ll start again attempting to figure out what I’m doing with the rest of my life.
