I also got showered with gifts! As you guys might have figured out, I am quite the shopping addict, and a got tons of giftcards I'm already dreaming about spending! I'm going on a trip to Minneapolis in April for a Twins game and to see the show Jersey Boys, my dad came and spent the day with me and maybe spoiled me a little too much, but that's OK, my roomie decorated our apt, and I got all sorts of other stuff! Again, I can't even begin to express how lucky I am to have such amazing people in my life who love me so much. Even if I am a little nuts!
A HUGGGGE shout out to Atlanta Cycling for helping me get a bike! If any of you guys want to get a new bike to join me on my biking adventures, because an adventure is definitely what it is, this is the place to go. They are so nice and helpful! I got a hybrid bike, and went on my first ride Monday. I'm not going to lie, it was harder than I thought. I only almost crashed once, but it was almost into traffic, right in Buckhead. I had to laugh at myself. It was a lot of fun though, and kind me gave a sense of my independence back. I went to Target all by myself! It was glorious!
I only have 19 treatments left!!! Then I have the month of April off. Starting in May I will do Chemo just the first five days of every month, for I'm not sure how long...At least a year. I'm feeling extra good this week, though! Maybe I'm still on a birthday high.
A huge congrats to Mandy and John, two of my friends from college, on their recent in engagement!
A mutual friend was nice enough to share his story with me, and I found it quite amazing and inspiring. I hope you will as well. http://inspiritnews.com/OneWeek.html
Don't forget the last day to order "Walk for Marissa" tshirts is next week! They are super cute, and I will be wearing mine at the Brain Tumor Walk in May! Here's the link to order: https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dDVlVXJNQUpHeUJreXo4YmZuejlOSlE6MQ
If you want to pay my money order, feel free to drop it off at my apartment! I love visitors as I get pretty bored throughout the week!
Thanks to everyone who made my birthday special! Here's pictures of all the festivities from Thursday night dinner with my parents to Saturday!
