Well, yesterday I drove my car three different times. Short trips each, but this is a major victory. Then I scratch cooked pasta carbonara for calendula_witch. Another major victory. I also wrote 2,200 words and did a bit of WRPA.

Still tired as hell, but not the profound, wrenching fatigue of times recently past. Peripheral neuropathy continues to wage war on me. But in general, so much better.

Today: some writing time, some play time.

Oh, I'm so very glad to hear this. I'll tell JC you're driving and cooking again (well, not at the same time). Such good news!

Writing-Related Program Activities - editing, revision, critique, research, submittals, etc. Anything that is part of writing but doesn't generate words on the page.

(The term is a political joke, referencing the one of the Bush administration's many failed attempts to retroactively justify the Iraq War. They at one point claimed that although the WMDs had not yet been found, they had uncovered evidence of "WMD-related program activities." It was so laughable that I immediately adopted/adapted the term for my own use.)

And today Jay? Today and everyday following is the farthest you've been from chemo since you began on January 8. One step farther, one thing back, one day more.

You're doing great. Writing, driving, cooking, playing.

Much love to you and yours.

YAY! Milestones are such fun, aren't they?

I've got to say I'm totally envious right now. I miss driving.
