Today is definitely a very Mondayish Monday. It’s the Monday after chemo so I’m still in pjs and wrapped up in a blanket. I had to have another call with the Long Term Disability people who are still not doing much of anything. I’ve got a load of dishes sitting in the sink that I keep reminding myself I should clean before hubby comes home with the kid. The only bright spot to this day is that my dad is here with a cheese tray from my grandma and there’s coffee…a day can never be that bad when there’s coffee. Or a cheese tray.
Other than that, though, it’s kind of a blagh day. So here are some random pictures and random thoughts.
What will happen to Obamacare?
I’m not necessarily concerned for myself, since we have the luxury of getting health benefits through our employers, but I am curious as to what will happen to Obamacare – 1. because understanding what it is and how people get it is a huge part of my job as a content strategist, and 2. cause I don’t want to see 20 million people lose health insurance. So that’s been on my mind lately. And as I may only be a couple weeks out from going back to work, I’m starting to concern myself with these issues once again.
Eyebrows make me feel normal
This is a recent selfie where I’ve drawn on eyebrows – compliments of a birchbox product that came in the mail a couple weeks ago. At first I thought I looked like Uncle Leo from Seinfeld when Elaine accidentally burned off his eyebrows and then drew them back on with a black sharpie, but honestly, I think these look okay. And yes, they do make me feel a bit more normal.
The gremlin has left…for now.
You know when your kid is being a gremlin for weeks on end and you’ve had JUST ABOUT ENOUGH, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! Well, it seems the tides or the moon or whatever has shifted and the gremlin has left the premises. Eating better. Listening more. Being respectful. I mean, I don’t know how long this is gonna last so I’ll take it while I can. Anyone else go through that recently?
Coloring is fun…when your kid can’t read.
I got this swear-word filled coloring book from my coworkers. It is PERFECT for my mood during chemo and on crappier days like today. Also great when your son has no clue what the words say, and you can still find a page or two that’s not too offensive for him to join in on.
Those are my deep thoughts this week. Ciao!
p.s. Thanks to my friends who came for last week’s chemo and all the delicious food you brought me!!
p.p.s. Thanks for the cheese tray, grandma!
