Candy - I know what you mean about time flying by. Somehow this year has both flown and dragged?! I was sorting out my vacation time for December and I will be off in 2.5 weeks and yet December 15th still seems far away. Or I was thinking earlier in the week that the grocery store now of course has a tree up, and poinsettias, but just yesterday it feels like I was walking there in shorts and they had summer toys out. However, I've tried thinking that for the year (well, 6 months, lets face it, I wasn't in any shape until June) I lost in being able to be out and about with cancer, the speed of change Covid has driven for workplaces to accept 100% remote work or more WFH than before will hopefully allow me to keep working a lot longer into the future.
Mel - I cannot believe youve done 4+ years at 125. That is incredible and something to aspire to!
Moth - I like to think things happen for a reason, even if its a gut punch at the time (not cancer though, obviously, thats just cellular bs). Maybe this will work out better in some way than the trial would have. Or have other benefit that can't be known just now. I hope the radiation goes well for you and zombiemet is finally put down for good!
Karen - what Tier are you in up there? Im worried that London's Tier 2 will shift to Tier 3 by mid month and cancel plans everyone has made to meet up (outside of course) for a drink or lunch. I can't imagine Boris will deny his buddies a chance for holiday cheer in the Mayfair salons, however, so full steam ahead!
About dosing - I do wonder if they dropped me too quick from 125 to 100 after only my first month. I was only complaining about feeling cold and cold flashes, nothing else. I am also 5'9 and pretty sturdily built, so I worry that the 100, while comfortable, won't get me the same bang for the buck. It IS working, though, so I guess that is what matters.
Black Friday sales were pretty good over here so I splurged and finally got grown up dinnerware and serving dishes, as all of our prior set of plates have more or less chipped or broke over the years (they weren't very good to begin with!). I won't unpack these until we move again next Spring, but I figured now was the time to buy something nice. And I got some new sheets with a winter pattern to make the bedroom cosy.
Cold and grey here, so today I think I will make a chocolate chip banana snack cake, wrap up/pack these presents that need to be shipped to Sweden and the US, and maybe pop down to the corner with a light beverage later to see our friends as they are headed home to South Africa on the 11th for the holidays. Lucky bastards.
Have a good weekend everyone!
