Halloween is over and I might never have such good costume opportunities, again.
There were so many bald men I could have pulled off.
Bette Davis and Kristin Wiig have sported some nice high-forehead-looks. I could have some fun with with those characters!
But I wasn't invited to any costume parties this year. And besides I had a lot to do on Halloween.
Vote and Buy Candy
I got slightly in the spirit, looking like a Pumpkin Head, when I early voted at the grocery store.
I had to carve the Jack-0-Lantern and get it out on the porch.
Then I geared up for my 3rd Radiation. What should I wear? It's Halloween after all.
It was a little frustrating not dressing up. After all, Don and I dressed up for chemo days. But I knew I was going to be wearing a drab hospital gown, so it was hardly worth the effort.
I did wear my pumpkin head scarf, which they made me remove, before my treatment. I opened my eyes and watched the machine's "head" move over me. It was decorated with orange pumpkin lights. Quite festive!
Then I thanked my 2 technicians who were dressed in matching tutus and I headed off to the dressing room. Oops! I forgot my scarf! "Hi!" I waved with an embarrassed grin to the man seated next in line, wearing his gown. I reached up with my hand, to see if I had indeed walked into the waiting area with my bald head. All I could do was laugh. We'll all in gowns, after all!
At home, Don was making chili and the evening was balmy for trick-or-treaters. I was so happy to be feeling good. My cold was gone and my chemo symptoms have pretty much disappeared... except for numb toes.
I was ready to answer the door to the kiddos. We only had 9, but that's okay. The chili was good and we caught an old Vincent Price thriller on TV.
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. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was 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!
