I am so looking forward to this weekend. I am so very grateful that my swelling is so much better and that this week I am recovering from the side effects of the chemo. I even got out for a bit yesterday...went to Wal-Mart...which I haven't been to in months..haven't been out shopping at all..just have been going to doctor's visits, church and a little ya ya'ing at Kimberly's once in awhile. Sometimes on the weekend, I would ride with hubby doing a few errands. Yesterday, I even drove one of the electric buggies and didn't even knock anything over...can remember my sweet Mom running into a couple of displays over the years LOL!

Tomorrow, Kimberly and I are going to take a copic marker class at the Scrapbook Corner, where we will learn to blend and shade. These are such awesome markers and I will be happy to learn how to color better! After the class, they are having a crop at the store...that should be fun and hopefully, I will get alot of cards made. On Sunday, I will go to church and then a little ya ya fun at Kimberly's! Due to chemo, I wasn't able to celebrate Lisa's birthday on her birthday weekend, so after ya ya'ing, Kimberly and I are taking her out to dinner at Bone Fish Grill! I can hardly wait for some Bang Bang Shrimp! Yum! This will be the perfect "pre chemo" meal, before starting chemo again on Monday! Next week when the nausea hits and I don't want to eat, all I will have to do is remember the awesome Bang Bang Shrimp!

Looking forward to starting the next round of chemo...each one down, means the end is getting closer! With the new chemo, I am already getting hair fuzz...looks like this time, my hair is going to be pretty white! That is okay...whatever color God chooses for me, will be just fine! I am hoping that the moustache stays at bay though!

I have so many friends going through personal and family health trials right now. I am praying for all and praying God will give them peace, comfort and strength during these difficult days! Prayer is so powerful!

Oooooo! We can start a new club -- of white-haired girls! :) I'm jealous of your copic class. I'm dying to get my hands of some of those markers. Teesha Moore carries on about them all the time.

If my white hair looks as good as yours, I will run for president of the white-haired girls club! Your hair is beautiful!

I love your white hair that's growing in. I think it's beautimous! I still can't believe all of you pulled off the surprise! What a great day and end to my two week long birthday. Thank you so much for everything!!!!
