Day 26: The day after Thanksgiving, my family took a beautiful walk through Seidman Park. I am grateful for the beautiful sunshine, the chance to get out and work off that Thanksgiving meal and the laughs we shared while we hoofed through the woods. At one point, we came across a log sitting above a creek. Meghan was the first to tread lightly over it; then Gavin took a steady turn; I then had to challenge myself to do the same thing. Next thing we knew, Cohen, Nana Moni and Brian had all made it over too. Pap Tres had to sit out because he had Evan asleep in the Baby Bjorn. It was a great day!
Day 27: Grandma Miller turned 88 today! We are thankful that she celebrated with a lot of her family in Lake Fenton and her favorite part of dinner is dessert. She loves her cake and ice cream!
Day 28: Day 5 of radiation. I am thankful for the kind radiation therapists and technicians. Every day when I come in they ask me how my evening was and every time I leave they happily say, "See you tomorrow!" I think they are sensitive to the fact that people really don't want to be there but they make it as comfortable as possible. I am especially thankful for the warm blanket they offer me during every treatment.
Day 29: Manicures and Pedicures! They make me feel like a brand new person. Nothing makes me happier than having pretty fingers and toes. And I have been seeing the same person for over six years - I love Chi - she does the best job!
Day 30: Brian and I won a trip to NYC. I am excited to share in Brian's first experience in New York City. I can't wait to go to Serendipity with Maya and BK. I also can't wait to meet Guiliana! I asked my mom if I was crazy since my two celebrity crushes are reality star women - Guiliana and Bethenney. I don't need to win the contest we are in, as long as Guiliana and I become BFF and she wants to spend Christmas together.
