back in the land of the living

Oh, Lord ya'll. I have never been so glad to NOT be sick in my life. The whole 48 hours that I had the queasies all I could think about was how in the world to people on chemo manage that as a lifestyle and still work. Seeing as how my resistance is at an all time low due to exhaustion and lack of fun, I guess I'm lucky I bounced back in four days. Ebola virus, I'm telling you.

My yard is now mowed for the first time this season so I feel better...not quite so cautious about stepping on mr snake. BG got back from her wonderful experience trip to Chicago with the Ebola virus. Daddy stopped by for a visit this afternoon, giving mom a chance for some alone time. We are almost settled with the arrangements for some extra help for them, and that makes me feel better too. They need a lot of attention, and the three of us can't do all that and work too. He showed me a new way to grow tomatoes using groundcloth and a concrete block. I'll let you know how that works out ;)

In typical Tennessee spirit, the weather has gone straight from cold to summer, but thank goodness the humidity is still low. That's the deal killer for me when it comes to summer. I wouldn't last a week during July in Mississippi without having a serious case of the vapors. But then again, that's what I've had for almost a week now! Be glad you missed it.



  1. I hate having to redo my comments lately blogger has just been so darn finicky. So to reiterate....

    Hey, I get to have two raised beds this year in the back yard. So if ya'll have a way to do tomatoes, I'm listening.

    Glad you got the care thing almost figured out. Whether it's parental care or child care it's hell.

    Hugs and prayers.

  2. I'm glad you're feeling better :)
