Another busy week as we are trying to get back to normal around here. I am back to work this week and trying to get back into a regular schedule. One thing I have learned is that my schedule is anything but normal. Flexibility is key around here. Work has been busy and there have been Christmas parties to attend. I appreciate all the hub bub as it keeps me distracted in a good way.
Mom started her Chemo treatments with Herceptin on Monday. Herceptin is more of an antibody and does not have all the side effects of more intense Chemotherapy. Her doctors are hopeful that this particular drug will keep the cancer that metastasized to her spine in check.
Mom also has a spot on her scalp that is basal cell carcinoma. This appeared about 6 months ago and she has an appointment today to get it looked at and to see what the treatment plan for that will be. Mom is doing pretty good since dad passed. She has a supportive church family and we try to be there all we can. This week each of my grown children have taken turns daily to go and visit mom or take her out.
I have been working on my Financial goals for 2013 and trying to set attainable goals and not ones that are beautiful on paper but tragically difficult to achieve in real life. I was hoping to eliminate most if not all the credit card debt THIS year, but there have been some unforeseen expenses that have stymied that goal.
A big shout out to Sluggy @ Don't Read This; It's Boring! I was the big winner for the "Boring Blog Box" Giveaway. Oh.... Sluggy's blog is anything but boring. She is a Rite Aid coupon queen and shares all of her deals with you.
As you look through the pictures below you can see all the great stuff I won! Sluggy, I will put all of these items to good use. My daughter is already calling dibs on the makeup.... and Princess (bulldog) would like very much to have the Reese's cups, but those are for hubs.
The box is a blessing and certainly cheered me up :) Winning is such a good feeling, isn't it?
I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday!
