Almost a 2fer

This past week was a good week except all I did was work and want to sleep. I was on midnights and I know that makes a difference in how I feel. I did have a major headache all day that I couldn't shake. It felt like someone put a knife in my head. Not that I know how that feels to have a knife shoved into my head, but if I did, I am sure this would be close.I was supposed to have chemo this week, but because of the hustle and the bustle of the holiday week I asked if I could have it the following week. So it will be a week from Wednesday at 9:30am. Two more full chemo's left and than 6 more of the partial treatments. I can't wait until it is all over and I feel more like a normal person. A week after my pump was removed and I still have problems drinking cold things. It seems the effects are lasting longer.
Now for the events of the week. Today I put up the Christmas decorations for the yard. I was cruising along putting up the decorations when the neighborhood kids decided to attack me as I am doing this. Leave me alone can't you see that I am a busy guy.(obviously not) Than one of the gang members asked what I was doing. "I'm picking apples what do you think I am doing".Putting up Christmas decorations.Very good little girl anything else I can do for you. "Why are you doing that now, Thanksgiving isn't even here yet." "I am doing it now because, I don't want to do it when the ground is frozen and also little girl I am the boss and this is the day the voices in my head told me to do it"" Now go away you bother me".
The other day before I came home from work Sally asked me if I would get Kaity a Sausage McMuffin and her a Hash brown.When I left, I came down Broad St. They are doing road work and you have to be careful of the pot holes forming. When I was going down the street and listening to the radio, there was a guy walking on the sidewalk. I wasn't really paying to much attention to the water filled pot holes until it was to late. I went right into one and splash. The water sailed and hit this guy good. I couldn't have done any better If I tried. I felt really bad so I did the mature thing and sped up so he couldn't get a glimpse of my license plate and find out where I lived. I got home and delivered the requested breakfast to find out , Kaity wanted a sausage biscuit.Kaity refused to eat it. I made a mistake, so I said I would go and correct my mistake. When I was coming home the same way,I noticed the same guy coming down the sidewalk but, this time facing me.I was thinking what do I do,What do I do. I decided to speed up a little to make it past this guy.All of a sudden a squirrel darts out in front of me and I had to slow down( I didn't want to hit the furry little critter) After I past the squirrel I looked up and the guy was right there and splash. Thankfully it just missed this guy. I looked in my rear view mirror and he was looking in my direction. He was probably thinking naw it couldn't have been but,what little did he know ,yes it was me again.
I am planning to do another blog at mid week. I hope you liked this one. I left my note book with my notes at work. So I will have some more to talk about. God Bless you all and thanks for visiting.
I wanted to mention that Hope the little girl that was hit by a car a few months ago went to Franklin to visit her classmates. She is doing great but, still won't be back to school for awhile. She is still going through physical therapy.
