Well, we've seen a lot of lights in the last two weeks. Tis the season and all of that.
First I took the kids to a local outdoor mall. Krista went to yoga class so i thought it would be a fun adventure to take both kids out to dinner and then walk around looking at mall christmas lights. Dinner went well but when we got out into the mall Arthur complained the whole time about the cold weather. Gridley had a great time running around. she got a ton of happy looks from the other shoppers because she was rocking some velcro sneakers, a Burton snowboarding coat, and a cool floppy teddy bear. she also had a huge grin and was giggling a lot.
This is apparently what a "Santa House" looks like these days. the whole thing was covered in what seemed to be tv screens. but they were just showing drawn pictures of what the side of a house should looke like (ie windows). there was the occasional bit of snow blowing through the tv screen. it was really weird. we didn't wait for santa.
In cancer news, i met with my oncologist and reviewed my bloodwork and CT scan. we're definitely approaching treatment time, but we're putting it off for another six weeks because i still feel pretty good. She's all cranked up to use that new drug Ibrutinib which sounds great. Unfortunately, some insurance companies are paying for it because of the cost and it isn't approved for my disease yet. In January I'm switching to Blue Cross, so I hope that improves my odds.
