And I decided that I would resume training, with complete focus and commitment.
Training for what?
For whatever comes along.
Again, maybe interesting. But not anything I want to say more about.
Then one day I decided to write about time management. How every minute I wonder if I should be spending it with Stella, the kids, my work, or myself. And whatever I decide, always feeling like I made the wrong choice. If Stella is upstairs feeling lousy, does she need me? Or do the kids need a distraction? Or should I really be spending that time exercising? No real right answers, so again, not worthy of a blog post.
Of course everyone wants an update on Stella’s condition. But I have found that cancer is not like a football game where the score changes every few minutes. You can’t go on this blog and check Stella’s status like she is the Kinneret after a rain storm. Stella has chemo every three weeks. The chemo makes her feel lousy. She has also lost lots of weight, which concerns me.
But on the other hand, she has told me that she is fine and that the weight loss is due to an inability to eat much during the ten days after chemo. The weather has been awful for the week, so that does not help.
So that is the important update you all have been waiting for.
Now I can get to the real reason I am writing this post.
Why I smell like a pomegranate.
By now, everyone is aware that as much as I appreciate the sentiment of people cooking food for us, I much prefer working with my kids to plan out menus and cook for ourselves. It brings a sense of “normalcy” to an admittedly abnormal situation that we would not have with lots of different people dropping off lots of different types of food.
Yet everyone loves Stella and wants to do something for her. So people have been dropping off presents.
She has tons of movies and books and doesn’t really need all that much.
So she has started getting what I call potions.
We have foofy soaps and shampoos, hand creams, foot creams, body creams.
We have bottles of lotions made from olives, and lavender, and lemons, and yes, pomegranates.
I think I have more fruit in my bathroom then in my kitchen.
And as nice has all these special gifts are, there is no way that Stella can use them all.
So I have been experimenting — not that I am really into lotions and potions.
But after a good sweaty run, who wouldn’t want to pour a bottle of pomegranate body wash on his head?
So to all the gift givers — thank you very much.
But I think both of us are all set for the time being.
Have a great day!
