Today wasn’t ALL pleasant. Let me start with the not so pleasant. After not working out for 6+ weeks, one’s muscles get pretty sore the day after exercising. Luckily, I didn’t push myself too much, so the soreness is tolerable. I thought about getting up this morning, but chose not to in lieu of letting myself heal. Tomorrow, though, I’ll get up to exercise again. I may even try running a little tomorrow?!?!
Now onto surprises. The first is from a friend of mine from church. He sent me an Email with the the following link to NewsChannel3. I knew there were a lot of people visiting the blog, but…
Then I got home from work and found a package in the mailbox. The package was the ultimate Vermont care package from one of my step sisters (Nancy) and her family. First, the package contained a big jug of pure Vermont Maple Syrup. Instructions for it’s use include pouring on pancakes, drinking it straight, or injecting it via my chemoport. Also included in the package was lime green colored duct tape. Now I do not know if the lime green color has any substantive meaning, but I’m sure Nancy realized that with my boyscout skill I could fashion and appropriate medical instrument to excise the tumor, if traditional medical procedures are less than successful.
Finally, I received a call from my cousin Susan, who is a lighting designer, based in NYC. Susan is in town for a couple of shows at the Rialto Theater at which the Urban Bush Woman Dance Company will be putting on two (I think) shows. Well, it turns out that the show on Saturday ends at 2p. That means that my cousin and her daughter can come to my party. Woo Hoo!
What problems cannot be solved with maple syrup, duct tape, family members and friends?
