I once had packing down to a science. Whether it was an overnight to the cabin or a 4 week road trip, I pretty much had the system down.
Today, I'm leaving town for the first time since chemo. It's just the weekend and it's to the cabin. Simple. I keep some clothes there and a hairdryer... Wait. I don't need that. But there's all this new stuff I have to think about. Should I wear my wig in the car or carry it in a box? Wig stand? That's ridiculous, to have to pack a wig stand. I wouldn't bring it at all, but there's a birthday outing for my daughter and I want to have the option. Oops, I almost forgot my thermometer and log book. I still take my temp twice daily for the med study I'm in. And there are a few meds I shouldn't leave behind. My pillow? I'm not a person who packs a pillow, but I've gotten pickier with sleep.
And then there are birthday goodies and food to pack. We're having a celebration and I'm excited. Did I pack the decorations?
It will be interesting to find out what my chemo brain forgot, when we get there!
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!
