It’s beginning to look a lot like…

What a crazy few weeks this has been! I’ve been in and out of so many doctor’s offices, I can’t even remember them all. I’ve been poked, prodded, scanned, and tested. But progress is being made!

My oncologist tells me they have a new drug regimen that means I won’t have to go through chemo! YAY! I’ll still have to go for infusions of drugs (think long-lasting IVs), but the drugs won’t be toxic. That’s a good thing! I’m going in to have a port-cath placed so that they can deliver the drugs through that. I’ll still be sitting for 5+ hours at a time, but the port means my hands will be free for crocheting!

With company coming for the next two weekends, I realized that today, Sunday, was going to be my only day of rest until after Christmas. So I’ve given myself permission to sit on the couch and work on crafts all day! Later tonight, we’ll decorate the tree and eat Christmas cookies. It’s my favorite time of year, the getting-ready-for-Christmas time, and I want to enjoy every bit of it.

I believe I’ll start my morning with a glue gun and some felt and see if I can come up with some new decorations to tie on packages. I’m going to try felt honeycomb ornaments… I’ve got ribbon and jingle bells to dress them up and I think they’ll look cute tied onto my packages.

Here’s hoping your holidays are filled with joy and peace. May we all find some measure of comfort and contentment in the new year.

Happy Chrismahanukwanzakah!

Let’s go create something!
