“I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,” Johnny Nash

Wow, I really forgot how the chemo brain and fog is…it was as if I was on vacation drinking many shots of tequila every day and only remembering faint images of what happened. I am reminded by Alex that I wasn’t that fun to watch football with since I kept saying fumble or touch down which was “wrong”. Today, I drove for the first time in 6 days. I was wearing my other hair with a headband which really freaked Alex out. He kept asking me about 10 times ,if I was going to get out of the car. Just to make him laugh, I kept asking him if he was sure he didn’t need help with his trumpet. I kept telling him that I could be like Campus Catering and drive in the back of the school to give him door to door service. He looked at me as if I was going to actually do it! I reminded him that last summer I wore this hair with this head band and he responded, “it is a lot of forehead, mom.”. Yes, leave it to a 10 year old if you really want the truth. I compromised and dropped him up top and rolled down the window and screamed, “Campus Catering?”.

For all you people who are now saying, “it is cold”, I am telling you that this weather is not cold (try living in Buffalo or Rochester, New York and walking to school in a blizzard!). This crisp sunshine day is what I love. I was so happy to see the sunrise and be outside that I was like a little kid giggling the entire day. I was happy to see friends and friendly faces. I was so happy to be in the moment of the day. I had lunch with Jim and enjoyed every minute even though he was trying so hard not to look at his phone and ignored almost every text and email.

I am even happier that I have tomorrow too!

For those of you who don’t know the song…here are the rest of the words!

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin?for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Look all around, there’s nothin?but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin?but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.
