To be home, all day long.

To have a husband that plays the perfect, relaxing music for such a day.

To cook a yummy pot roast for some "faux" Italian style beef sandwiches. Send me 5.00 and I'll send you the recipe!

To have my family come see me without having to come to the hospital.

To have Liz and Kathie drop in for a visit....and bring food!

To surprise my mom when I pulled off my "doo rag" and she realized I looked like my dad, when his hair fell out after his chemo.

To have my daughters come and hang out and then work to help me clean up my messy closet. Because i am a mess.
(Actually, I piled up on the bed while they went through stuff and I said "Keep", "No", or "Oooh, what was I thinking?")

To have Katie come across an old Dooney and Burke purse, in which we found some GIANT gold loop earrings that make me look like Yul Brenner in "The King and I". I really don't think I can pull them off. And I think they're circa 1992.

To have Mary-Keeley help organize the the jetsam and flotsam left after getting the closet straightened out.

Oh, and there was an almost full pack of Benson and Hedges Light 100 cigarettes in that purse. 1992 was a stressful year for me. YUCK.

To have the best Santa in the world, my mom, come in with things that came in after Christmas or she had forgotten to bring over on Christmas, so it was like Christmas again! I can't wait to take my new Kindle to the outpatient clinic when I have long days there! Thank you, Mama! Oh, and it has a nice red cover. Because I DO LOVE RED!!!!

To have friends out there like you, who have cared, prayed, read this blog, and I hope will continue to do so.



  1. I'm glad you are getting to be home with your family! Get some rest girl!

  2. Penny,
    It is so nice to read about your wonderful day with your family.


  3. I can not belive you got a Kindle! I am so jealous!
