Getting Closer

I borrowed a really GREAT duffle bag for my stuff for the 3-Day. It goes in the floor of the living room tomorrow so I can start packing it and getting my clothing figured out for each day.

I'm still looking for Trivial Pursuit cards to go with me. I need to go to a thrift store or something and see if I can find some. I have some other items to keep folks busy.

Liam wants to be Obi Wan Kenobi for Halloween. He's totally fixated on it. I want to get him some brown fabric and make him a costume. It can't be that hard. Maybe after the walk, if I'm not half dead I can do it.

I'm working on figuring out how to make flash cards with Word. I have it 90% figured out. I'm going to see if I can encourage my students to work with flash cards and see if that improves their recollection. They used to help me a LOT in college. I am betting that won't even help. But I'm going to try it out this next chapter.

We celebrated Eric's birthday today. His parents and grandfather put on the most wonderful dinner for him. It was awesome. I wish there was some way I could really show him the deep appreciation I have for him and all he does.

Right now my world revolves around the 3-Day and that's all, really. I'm focused on that and pretty much just that.

Posting could get pretty slim for the next week. Just know I'm doing everything I can to finish up work for the week and do what I need to do for the 3-Day.

Im really frustrated about one thing. In the last three weeks or so, I've gotten all my appetite back and then some. There are still things I don't want, but I'm hungry with such ferociousness lately, that I'm gaining back the weight I lost this summer. How can you eat a big meal and 30 minutes later, I feel hungry again? I don't get that. I just don't get that. I was hoping the chemo killed this almost unreal hunger. It had for a while. But now I'm back to "normal" and when I get hungry I'd eat a doorknob if there wasn't food around.

I know you are getting excited about the 3-day, we are all excited for you. As for your appetite, maybe your body is telling you something, so feed it to keep up your energy (at least this week and weekend!).

A thought on the flashcards - I have made recipe cards on Word using cardstock paper, good luck on that project as well!
