Taking off

I had the fourth dose of radiation today. I was tired and sort of depressed. It was gloomy and I didn't want to get out of bed. When I showed up at Radiology for some reason they were having a luau at 8:45 in the morning. They had food out, and ceramic hula dancers, Don Ho on the boom box and all the staff had on Hawaiian shirts and grass shirts. Maybe it was my mood , but I found it incredibly bizarre to be faced with that much cheerfulness so early on a dreary morning. I couldn't even bring myself to ask, "What's up with the Luau?"
I called up Penny and we went for pedicures. That did cheer me up. I worked the rest of the day. I took the new nurse, Gloria, out on visits with me and had to show her some of the detective skills that are required of NFP nurses. (We found our client and got our paper work done!)
I just packed my overnight bag. Penny, Mary and I will head out for the Promised Land (State Park) tomorrow after radiation. I am really looking forward to just chilling with my BBFs without any distractions of home, husbands or work.
