Been a While!
Wow, over a week and no update. What have I been up to, you ask? Pretty much nothing. I'm so completely bored out of my mind. I'm beginning to regret my decision to not attend school this semester, as I'm feeling fine most days and I think I probably could have done it. But, I had no way of knowing that. I still have no way of knowing if I'm going to continue feeling fine. My port has healed up for the most part; I just have some residual bruising and the incision scars now.
I'm beginning to get back into jewelry making. I started this hobby when I was in high school, but stopped when I just got so busy working that I didn't have time time. I tried to start it up again a few years ago but again, I became too busy between work and school. Now I have lots of time! I've made a few practice pieces over the last few weeks. Between me and my mom, we have managed to stock me up with enough materials to get started in earnest. So, if you're looking for something nice to wear, let me know and I'll see what I can do. I may even start an E-bay store if I have enough product to do so.
Ted had his drill this weekend. He had to do a rifle qualification yesterday--he hasn't used a weapon in almost six years. He only missed 'expert' by four shots! I'm very proud of him. The National Guard is a little more, what's the word I'm looking for, relaxed than the Marines. In spite of that, he maintains a high level of discipline and holds himself to high standards. Because of this, he stands out amongst his fellow soldiers. Some of these guys sound like real tools! One guy won't show up for several drills, then has the nerve to ask why he hasn't gained any rank! Some people just amaze me.
Well, that's about all I have for now. My next treatment is on Tuesday, and it will be the first time using my port. It's going to be quicker, hopefully, as well as better because it won't be hurting my arms like before.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone is doing well, and looking forward to spring as much as I am!
