Chemo High

So after feeling like crud for several days after chemo, I usually get this chemo "high" in which I go into a mania phase for a few days. Can't sleep. Can't sit still. Go go go go go go go go. Comes in handy when I have a lot to do. Which I usually do after being down for several days. Don't know if this is normal or what? Anyways, here's a run down of my day...

6am wake (an hour early because Dave kept hitting the snooze button and I couldn't go back to sleep!!!!)
745am take the kids to school
830am walked the Powerlines Trail (about 45 minutes UPHILL!) with Paris
Sold some books back to Powells Books
Dropped off a load of consignment stuff at Baby and Me
Went to the Sprint Store and had them clear my old phone so I could donate it.
Filed papers and worked on the office.
Did a load of laundry
Emptied and loaded the dishwasher. Cleaned my kitchen.
Swept and mopped my kitchen.
Watched an old episode of Smallville while I folded clothes.
215pm went to pick up the kids.
Dropped off a load of donations at the Rummage Center.
Read the newspaper in the pick up line at school. Also did the crossword and Sudoku.
Took Spencer to The Hoop to have a basketball lesson with his dad.
Came home and made dinner for Kaelin.
Checked emails.
Took Kaelin to gymnastics.
Drove to the dogpark. Noticed my purse was missing. Drove back to the gym. Found my purse in the lost and found (chemo brain!)
Drove back to the dogpark.
Walked the park and threw the ball for Simba from 630-730pm.
Picked up Kaelin from gymnastics.
Posted on my blog...

Now here it is 830pm and I've got more laundry to do, kids to put to bed and shows to watch.

Hopefully tomorrow will be another productive day!

I've been using a step counter and my goal is 10,000 steps a I already have 10,500!
Go me!

Hope your Monday was a good one! I'm grateful to see another Monday!!!!
