#100 - Don't Like Sneaking
I felt like I was playing hooky on Tuesday. I left town on the 7th day after chemo. It was my last chemo, but there was a good chance I would get a call saying my white blood count was low and they would be sending over my nurse to draw blood. I kept my fingers crossed and left town.
I just left for 2 days, with Don and "The Engaged Kids" to go hunting for wedding venues. But it felt daring. I'm usually a good rule follower and I'm in a medical study after all. But I lucked out. They never called.
On the first day, we just visited one place in Austin. The weather was lovely, the kind you hope for on a wedding day. But the venue was too rustic.
After a night at the cabin, we got an early start and hit 6 different options in the Hill Country.
The air was dry, but the temps were near 90 and I was feeling in a weak state by the 4:00 appointment. But, I got to see them all and there was time to ponder all we'd seen, on the drive home to Sugar Land.
I felt lucky to be able to zone out in the backseat with dear Lola. I forget how soothing it is to just stroke fur... over and over.
I had a lot of thinking time and I kept reminding myself about how lucky I am, with timing of this wedding. When Scott and Chali became engaged last March, they could have aimed for a fall wedding, 2016. I had felt pretty wiped out just wandering leisurely around venues. What if I'd been playing a Mother-of-the-Groom role, at an actual wedding!
So the Future Bride & Groom, ended up choosing a venue and the wedding will be next fall!
They made a perfect choice and I couldn't be happier for them. They have so many things to think about. What an exciting year ahead! Me? I'm just glad I'll have some kind of hair on my head!

Oh hooray! Next fall will be perfect! I'm so glad you were able to see all the choices. But my gosh, 6 venues in a day, anyone would be wiped out at 4pm! Good job, mom of groom! 😘

Yes! I can't believe next fall! I'm so glad I got to go along for the visits and they all encouraged me to take it easy here and there. And.. I must admit... some of these venues were just a couple min drive from each other. :) But I'm thrilled to have been a part of it!

I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
