We spent the weekend recovering from Ryan’s last chemo treatment, which also happened to be his hardest yet. Even though we haven’t left the house since Thursday we made the most of it by movie marathons, big breakfasts, long walks, and visitors!
One of my girlfriends showed up with celebratory champagne and ice cream, another brought over a cookie cake that read with icing “Happy Last Chemo Day”, and my sister and brother-in-law came over on Saturday night with dinner and laughs. It ended up being a really very special (albeit hard) weekend.
During these weekends at home, I always consult my staycation idea list. It works every time. I was on the phone with a girlfriend on Saturday afternoon and she asked if I was going crazy, feeling like I was under house arrest… and I laughed because honestly, I’m not… I’ve mastered the art of the long weekend at home. Although I am looking forward to new adventures soon, I’m trying my best to do this season well and soak up these long weekends together.
