Saw III, and skeeters and chemo, oh my!

I am still having issues with the all encompassing fatigue. It's big fun. Of course, one could make the argument that if I took better care of myself, a lot of this would be gone on its own, but whatever. My weekend was rather calm. Saturday after I finished working, mom and I drove to my friend Karen's house for a Halloween block party. It was not the most exciting but I got to visit with Karen which is almost good for a few laughs. Sunday, I got up and went to mass like a good genuflector and then came home to clean the house and steam clean the carpets. I am a month behind on that, by the by. I do it every 3 months because of the animals. I got that all done while watching the Saints game and before the Steelers embarassed themselves in Raiders country. The rest of the day I chilled out really. Yesterday I got up and went to go get the flowers for all of the graves since Wednesday is All Saints Day. Spent a small fortune on that. Then, once the hubs got home, we went and put fresh flowers on all the graves while I got even more mosquito bites than I had gotten while down at Karen's. The grass around all the graves was all cut down because apparently the mayor had sent people out to do it which was really nice, I thought. All the graves had fresh paint too which really cut down on our work. Thank goodness. We got home, hubs changed and then we did a super quick date night of din din and Saw III. Loved that flick. LOVED IT. I will be buying it the MOMENT it comes out. Jigsaw did not disappoint.

Yesterday was dad's first chemo treatment. He did really well thus far. Now today he might feel like something scraped of the foot of a meat packer, but at least last night when I spoke to him, his spirits were good. I am very grateful for that.

Well, I have to start work in 35 minutes so I am gonna go at least blow dry my hair since that is the only thing besides a shower that I do to make myself presentable on days such as today. Happy trick or treating, kiddos!

Glad you pops did well with his first round. :)

Sorry about your steeler. I saw on a player's poll that Ben is one of the most overrater players, but TO is at the top of that list. Uh huh.

Why do you even bother drying your hair? Who the heck is gonna see you? Unless you make a trek to Walmart to see all the old folks...but then again half of the women there will have rollers in their hair.

My Mom went through chemo. Expect him to get really sick... as in 'bad bad flu' kind of sick - where you are just miserable and nothing helps.

I'm sorry your Dad is going through this....

Glad things went well with your dad!

I don't know if I can handle the Saw movies. Bad dreams and shit scare me. :P
