I had a few things I wanted to accomplish today. First, find a post office so I could mail a birthday card to my sister-in-law, whose birthday just happens to be Valentine's Day. With that accomplished, the next thing was to get my hair cut -- actually just a trim. It's not always easy to find a good hair dresser when you are not in an area long enough to establish yourself with one. I asked the good folks at the Radiology Oncology Clinic for recommendations. One suggested the salon near Trader Joe's, so I decided to check it out.
Since it was guilt-free (hehe), we each settled on the burger, fries and -- on Saturdays, buy one shake, get one free, so of course we had to try it -- two chocolate shakes please.
I also read if you do not wish to eat the hamburger bun, they will gladly put your hamburger in a bowl. I read that AFTER I ate every bite, even the bun!
The burger, fries and shake came to 840 cal, compared to a McDonald's Big Mac, fries and shake at 1470 cal. Not too bad, even with the bun.
With our tummies full and the weather turning colder and more windy, we headed home.
I have managed to make it thru three weeks of treatment, with three more weeks plus one day to go. The biggest problem I've had is keeping the markings and the stickers in place. Most places tattoo their markings -- Duke used to tattoo until a marker was found that would not be harmful to the skin. Using the marker, they mark the spots and then place stickers over those marks, so from time-to-time, the techs have to remark my marks -- WHEW, that's a lot of marking. My body looks like a map to the Lost Dutchmen's Gold Mine and I even have an "X marks the spot." Even though I think I'm being careful when showering or moisturizing, those markings continue to haunt me.
We've had a great day and hope you have to.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless you, one and all!
