Nap Time

It was a long day. A really long day if you want the truth. Taking the 0558 BART meant that I arrive at Powell Street in time to catch the 0650 shuttle. One minute earlier and I could have boarded the 0640 shuttle which was pulling a way as I thought about dashing down the street. The end result of going in early was that I was through the labs and had seen my doc in plenty of time to not have to worry about hurrying infusions. Its a lot of fluid – more than I drink in a normal day just going in the IVs which means both my kidneys get a work out and I help wear the track in the floor from the loungers to the loo.

George rescued me again and we headed home – north over the Golden Gate

note, traffic moving

and across the Richmond Bridge turned out to be a lot faster than the projected route through the city. It was the financial district that was insane the other night with an average of one (1) car making it through per light which might explain the almost 2 hour journey home.

I did some knitting and finished an audiobook – Kelley Armstrong’s second in her Yukon Territory mystery series – A Darkness Absolute.   The narrator is excellent and the short punchy chapters make it easy to stop and start listening while keeping up the pacing.

The knitting was – from left to right –

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    Do you know how many more treatments you will need? Hope this one won’t be so hard on you.

    normal number of cycles is eight, but open to negotiation if things work well. I am hoping for 4 but probably it will be six
