Everything seems to take longer and be more complicated to get accomplished than seems necessary sometimes. It doesn't seem as if it should have taken until today to get an appointment to begin chemotherapy next Thursday, considering that we had the educational sessions a full week ago. But it did. Ah, well. We'll be ready and then some.
Combine that with Southern California's current humid heat wave and things just seem a bit out of joint. Yesterday afternoon at about 3:30 the sky darkened and the wind whipped up considerably. The Weather Channel said there was a thunder-and-lightning storm near Hemet and we were just getting an edge of it. But it turned out to be an edge that featured thunder and lightning here in Lake Elsinore as well, around 6:00 or 7:00. That's unusual. I know summer and rain go together in most of the country -- I lived in suburban Virginia for 8 years -- but we usually don't get any rain in Southern California after about the end of April.
Today the yard is full of bark blown off our eucalyptus trees and other vegetation brought down by the wind. Clean-up tomorrow, but it's still expected to be near 100, and while I'm not as frail as Jen thinks I am, I can't spend a whole lot of time in that kind of heat before wanting to go inside where it's cooler, since I can't go in the pool yet thanks to the much smaller but still present open wound. . Should be a lazy day tomorrow, buy we'll have to do some pick-up.
