I really LOVE weekends. This weekend in particular was great. I had no chemo and felt great all weekend long.
Ava had a soccer tournament. They came in second place. Victor’s team won two basketball games. We had dinner with the family (just the four of us) Saturday night. It seems like everything disappears on weekends. Even cancer takes a back seat to all the pleasure I get being with the people who matter most to me – Helene, Victor and Ava.
Now it’s Sunday night and the regular world kicks in. Ava has the flu – the bad one that’s going around. I am doing my best to keep my low immune system away from her. Victor and Helene are studying for his Social Studies test (by the way – no one prepares their kids for tests like Helene – she is AWESOME) and I am getting ready to go back to work tomorrow.
I wish I could make fighting cancer a full time job. I’m good at it. I love what I do for a living. I’m good at that too. I have so many great friends that I have made over the course of my career – so forgive me when I say that I LOVE weekends. That time is precious to me now.
I don’t work any less than I used to. I still work as hard as I ever have. It’s just now … now – the WEEKENDS are more important than they have ever been.
THIS WEEKEND was a very regular weekend. Kids sports, family fun, Sunday workout at the gym. I LOVE REGULAR WEEKENDS.
