Last week my mom and I thought about driving up to the mountains and staying in Asheville. Two problems. Even though it was a weekday, we couldn't find a nice place to stay. I guess the foliage is breathtaking this year. But that didn't matter, because I had no interest in getting out of bed. I can just never predict when I will and won't have energy.
Finally, at about one in the afternoon, I rolled out of bed, put on some clothes, and we went to Lake Norman State Park to have a picnic. The park is actually very close to the same place we saw the balloons flyover (see last post). About 30-40 miles north of Charlotte. It was one of those perfect 70 degree days.
Notice I didn't take a single LAKE picture.
I guess we didn't have to drive all the way to Asheville to see gorgeous leaf change. But man, do I need to do some Christmas shopping at the General Mast store there, so I know a small trip will be in our future.
Lately, when I have a good day between chemo treatments, it is a REALLY good day! Tip: Drinking water during chemo treatments is boring, but helps ridiculously.
I am so bad at remembering what funny things three (almost 4) -year-old Brycen has said lately, but here are 2:
"Granny, I am not going to help you take around garbage cans anymore. I don't want to do that chore anymore. Because I have to wash my hands after, and I don't have time for washing my hands. But you better wash your hands, Granny."
"Potty mouth words are called potty words because we can only say them while going potty."
