I am half way though my Chemo Treatments so I have had my share of "Good Weeks" mixed in with the bad ones. I think that this current Good Week is probably the busiest one ever. It is actually close to 2 weeks this time. It started on the 8th, 8 days after my last treatment. I was happy that I was feeling pretty good so I went to the Christmas Progressive Dinner. It was great to get out and enjoy some time with the ladies and basically kick off my good week.
Once it started there was no stopping... Quite literally. We jumped into action and started working on the Christmas Candy. Every spare moment we worked on it. There were not a lot of spare moments but we made it happen so that we could share at least a little Christmas Cheer and Gratitude to people who have helped us out. I am definitely grateful that I was able to buy my Chocolate Tempering Unit this summer to help make the process Easier. It was a fun "toy" to play with this holiday season.
This "week" continued into Saturday with the Christmas Party at the Church with Food, Music and Of Course SANTA! The girls were pretty excited to see him, but so shy that they didn't talk to him about anything.

We decided this week that we wanted to do Christmas ON Christmas. We were going to try to do it Monday before I went in for Chemo, but after this week we have had I decided I will likely be more prepared and probably even more rested on Christmas than I would be tomorrow. We will just keep our celebrations at home and have a relaxing Christmas.
Is it crazy that I am looking forward to Chemo so I can rest up? :)
