Today I went and visited Mon Cher. I haven’t seen her since last year so this has been a long time coming. She still has miles to go in her fight but she is the strongest person I know so she will get through this. I can’t even believe that it’s been almost two years since I almost lost her. Fingers crossed that she passes whatever she needs to pass to get on that transplant list again.
I was there an little over an hour but I knew it wiped her out because I was wiped out when I left. It felt so good to sit and talk to her and catch up. We have both been out of the lab for so long that we had little to gossip about, which is okay because little is enough. Neither of us misses the drama of the lab.
I left her house and made a wrong turn shortly afterwards. I am not usually on that side of town so it’s tricky for me. I recognized road names but wasn’t sure how to get home so I used Google maps on my phone. My wrong turn led me here….
I would have to be in a pretty big hurry to drive by the labyrinth and not stop. I wish I would have worn a jacket today because it was chilly and the sun never made an appearance but it wasn’t too bad. I even called Blondie while I was there to see if she wanted to meet up since I was in her neck of the woods. She was knee deep in paperwork and hadn’t showered yet so it was a no go. Someday we will get together….retirement keeps her busy.
I came home and took a nap. A normal nap for me is 30 minutes tops….today I crashed for over an hour. KB called me back and we went to dinner since I won’t see her this Friday because of book club. She wants to meet Mountain Woman who is staying at my house Saturday night. I played the middle man and I believe a reading is going to happen. I am always happy for the opportunity to hang out. It’s hard to find people who think/believe like I do. Plus Mountain Woman is the ultimate teacher….I have learned more from her than all of my other teachers combined.
I wanted to go to the dream workshop that she is attending but things kept coming up so I took that as a sign. Mountain Woman will share what she learned with me so at least I will get the highlights.
Speaking of highlights….my Sunday henna treatment was less red this time. Saran wrapping does make a difference. My hairdresser said that I can apply it as often as I want because it is good for my hair but if I ever want to go chemical again it will be difficult. Hopefully I don’t go back…
I don’t have much else to report other than I packed up eight more boxes tonight. The claustrophobia of moving boxes has begun….a couple more weeks….a couple more weeks…..a couple more weeks…..Zia
