I woke up too early again this morning but NOT out of anxiety. I am just excited. I’m excited to not have anxiety!
Only two more rounds of chemo. Planning our trip to Colorado after round three and pre- bone marrow.
Last night was the firefly night of all time for Ashton. We were using the nets my mom got last summer. And, yes, they were putting them on their heads. Kids were flocking to the yard and I’m running around trying to find jars with lids (none) to trap these poor, innocent beetles who become captive because they have the misfortune of bioluminescence.
Jen and I were in charge of dumping copious amounts of lightening bugs in to jars and trying to keep them from escaping with aluminum foil “lids”. We had so many we could hardly keep up with the kids. Meanwhile trying to have an adult conversation not about cancer. Ashton was on fire, himself. To have young partners-in-crime!
Clay’s mom stopped over and she is so nice, too. He was the one who didn’t need a net. Just grabbed’em out of the air. Ash did not go to bed til ten!
Today, we do not have to do anything extraordinary. We get to DECIDE where we WANT to spend one of my absolute favorite days: Independence Day. Party or carnival? I want to be caught up in a celebration and watch the sky explode. We have much to celebrate–even beyond our country’s independence.
What’s missing? the usual. My girl. And my big boy.
We will go to Bruckner’s today which is an animal preserve somewhere near here. So grateful for days we can just be normal (ish).
