Jeff has been gently nudging/ totally bugging me to get a post pumped out.  I promised I would do it today....i have officially 30 minutes to get her done.  :) Nothing like a little procrastination.

This past week has been good.  I have felt well and am so thankful for the reprieve that I enjoy on the off weeks between treatments.  Thursday Jeff took the kids to the Ranch in Wyoming....their favorite place on this whole earth.  On the way, he dropped me off at my parents in favorite place on earth.  It was pretty much the best weekend ever for all parties.  I have missed Jeff and my little family, but was delighted to spend some time with my parents.  I love being in Twin as I always  run into and catch up with old friends who I love and make me feel loved. Mom and I were able to attend the Temple together and filled the rest of our days with sewing projects.  Dad spoiled us with dinner dates at our favorite restaurants.   I am sure that Jeff and the kids are not homesick and are having the time of their lives.  I have asked him to take lots of pictures to document and share.  Jeff may be a tad bit overwhelmed with keeping track of all 4 as they have plenty of room to run around like wild animals, but they are having some great adventures that the kids will remember and treasure...I giggled and had chest pains all at the same time over a message that he sent me.

In his own words....

We kept busy today.  I took the kids shooting, We caught some minnows, we went for a 4 wheeler ride, Wyatt is mad that I won't build a fire to roast marshmallows but promised to do it tomorrow. Wes "accidentally" headbutted Wyatt and knocked out his other front tooth, as they were sharing the hammock....  Wes has a black eye from falling off the hammock... Whitney fed the squirrels then made cookies. Walker is mad you took his firecrackers.... He has killed several wasp nests and only got stung once. This was my day... I'm going to put kids to bed... Hope you have a great night. -Jeff

They will be home later in the week. Late this evening Mom and I drove back to Boise for my treatments that will be tomorrow.  It will be great to cross one more treatment off my list, but I honestly wanted to siphon gas out of her car so we wouldn't have to come back to reality.  She reminded me that she has a credit card, and that my evil plan would not work.  I am so happy she is here with me. I am a lucky girl to have her.  My hope for the infusion tomorrow is that I will be not be such a big, fat of tonight I am feeling tough and ready to kick some serious cancer butt!  Wish me luck!
