A few weeks ago my friend Ann baked us Alan Jackson's favorite Chocolate Sheet Cake. Its delicious & pretty simple to make so I made it last night & took it to the radiation therapists today to say Thank you for taking such great care of me the last 6 weeks. Margie, an older lady who has been my primary therapist, was so touched by the cake - it made me feel good.
Poor Emilia is home sick today. She's sleeping peacefully right now, hope she is better this evening so we can go out to celebrate.
We had a great weekend - Saturday the kids had a ball "helping" our neighbors with their garage sale. Emilia sold out of all her jams except for the Mango Mint - I guess people have trouble wrapping their heads around that flavor combination. She got savvy this time - had graham crackers so people could sample. I think she was pretty willing to sacrifice on price but she was so proud of her accomplishment. Great lessons in marketing, sales, & persistence. She tried to give me $10 as my "25% for making all the product". I told her to keep it & discovered the little tycoon has $100 cash in her wallet. Hoarder.

Life is perfectly good today - definitely something to celebrate. I'm excited, no THRILLED, for a week with no treatments, for feeling wonderful, for being done with radiation, for the amazing family I have, for this life I get to lead.
