The Week in Gifts

The weekend up in Port Townsend was so fun and such a nice break — it was hard to come back to chemo-land, BUT I got prezzies this week that softened the blow. V. thrilling ones too.

blingFirst, there’s the bling I got while in Port Townsend. My dad and Diana’s friend Dan the Jewelry Maker of Bridget Zinn auction fame gave me this very cool and flashy ring which I have been wearing everywhere. It dresses up the yoga pants look perfectly.

Then when we got home from our mini-vacation there was a large envelope waiting for me from one of my aunts and inside were some brand new flowery bras which I’m very excited about. By the end of a chemo session everyone in the place has seen your bra what with all of the tubes and things needing to be adjusted and if you’re going to be flashing your undergarments about you should have something decent on. Huzzah for cute underwear!

Then, to top it all off, the day of chemo I came home to a box FROM MEG CABOT! letter from megMy Other Mother (new mother-in-law) bid on some of Meg’s books at the auction and when she won, had them sent to me. And what I got in the box was so much more. Besides a lovely handwritten note on adorable stationary, there were all sorts of cool things like  books on cds and “princess” bracelets.

Plus, there’s the box, which our cats found thrilling.

Hope you’re having a great week!

  1. I think you should post some pictures of the bras. Enquiring minds want to know!
