New sites, chemo & a tree!
Have you guys seen the site Paperback Frenzy? It’s a review site where various bloggers submit their own reviews to be published on one central site. I was lucky enough to be contacted by the guy who thought up this great idea and will now be posting my book reviews not only here on my own blog, but also at Paperback Frenzy. Please stop by to check this great site out. I think you’ll find lots of familiar blogger faces there too!
I will be also posting my thoughts on living with cancer over at the site Mothers with Cancer. My first post (under the pen-name “scwrites” isn’t up yet, but I hope it will soon). I am thrilled to be able to contribute to a site with so many wonderful women living with this disease. Just this past Friday I had my first chemo treatment to treat my breast cancer. It’s now Sunday afternoon and I am feeling ok. They gave me an arsenal of anti-nausea medication, which have been helpful to hold off much of that yuckiness that comes with some many chemo drugs. I’ve also been living mostly on dry toast and soup these past two days, since even with all the preventative meds I still do feel a little sick and will just have to wait it out and hope that I’ll be feeling better in a few days.
Luckily, my husband has been doing all the hard work around the house this weekend and even brought me home a lovely Christmas tree. It was nice to be able to watch my husband and my girls trim the tree while I relaxed on the sofa.
