Peters Paradise Island...now serving juice boxes

If you are longing for a tropical vacation this holiday season, you might want to stop by our house. I have it so hot in here, you would think we were living in Aruba instead of Cape. I cannot seem to warm up! Poor Scott and Megan have been wearing their summer clothes around the house. I have the furnace cranked up, the gas fireplace on, candles lit, layers and layers of clothes...I think we should set up some beach umbrellas and make some tropical drinks. Which brings me to my next point. I have been stricken with the most unquenchable thirst this week. No matter how much I drink, it's not enough. I think that's why chemo went so well, b/c I am drinking so much water and juice. I had a lightbulb moment last week. I wanted juice so bad but couldn't figure out how to drink it at room temperature. Then it hit me- juice boxes! So I am now reverted back to toddlerhood, carrying around my juice box. I have drank dozens of them!
So anyway, that's the scoop. If you haven't received a Christmas card from me, it's b/c I continue to suffer short term memory loss and now I can't even remember who I sent them to. But that's another blog, I won't even go into the memory loss right now. Besides, I wouldn't remember if I did tell you.
Have a great weekend!
Love,
Michele;

Have to chuckle at this one. I too have got the fireplace in our bedroom cranked up at night, along with layers of clothes and blankets. Oh and we now have stock in Juicy Juice juice boxes. I think my family also thinks I am nuts, but it works. By the way Gatorade is not bad either! Glad you are doing well!

I'm so glad you are doing well this trip around. If the warm temperature in the house and the unquenchable thirst are your only problems then you're doing good! I always seem to freeze in there.

Michele,
Carley and I are back. We finally got our e-mail connection back at home. We read through your blogs....I forgot how funny they were. Good to hear you are doing better! Donna said you asked about us. I have to catch up and find out why she was in NY without me. Talk to you soon.

WELL I WAS GONNA SAY HOW BOUT A BEACH PARTY YOUR HOUSE ON NEW YEARS EVE BUT I GUESS YOU'LL BE HOOKED UP AGAIN. YOU CONTINUE TO MAKE ME LAUGH, AND IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND. I THINK WE HAVE TO KEEP A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR IN THIS LIFE OR WE WILL GO CRAZY! TAKE CARE!
