I vacuumed my own living room today. I know, who cares, right? But it's been weeks since I vacuumed anything. It made me really tired, but still, I feel very accomplished. One of the things I've learned from all this cancer nonsense is that I maybe should have been working with the kids more in the ways of picking up. I'll admit, I fell into the trap of it's easier and faster for me to just do it all. Because those of you with children know, it is totally easier. Now that bending over makes me want to grit my teeth, those closer to the ground are being asked to do more pitching in around here. I think that's okay. It's mostly their mess, man.

Anyway, I'm glad to be feeling good enough to do lame things like vacuum. Or empty the dishwasher. Seriously, last week, I didn't have the energy to empty the dishwasher. Talk about taking things for granted. I used to run around this place and have the entire main floor level picked up and clean in maybe 45 minutes. I could multitask and start dinner while loading the dishwasher or cleaning something in the kitchen. I could clean the bathroom really quick before the kids even knew I was gone. I miss my amazing mom super powers.

The plan for today is to relax and putter around. It looks like nice weather outside, so I think kicking the kids outside will be in order. My desk is a disaster area, and a lot of it is paper that can be recycled. Who knows? I might even make dinner! A sweet potato sounds good.

Just in case you were wondering about the state of my ass...it still bothers. Things are prickly and ouchy. Sometimes it's worse, sometimes it's better. I'm glad constantly that I don't have radiation this week.

Here's something funny. The radiation nurse suggested a couple of times that I try a sitz bath. I smiled and nodded. But I sort of didn't know what that was, or had a vague idea. So last night Eric was on his laptop and I asked him, because I can ask him any silly question known to man and he doesn't mock me. Much. Now I know what a sitz bath is. I'd tell you, but I'm sure your google works. Bwahahahahahaha!

All right. Have a great Tuesday!!
