When I told a friend that the kids were going to spend a few days with my mother at the lake, she said, “ohhh, a vacation for you two!”
Well, kinda. If the kids were not being sent away because Travis is having chemotherapy and then ensuing sickness, then it would be a wonderful kid-free "stay-cation". But he is having chemo and he is sick, so we are calling this “chemo-cation” and have enjoyed a slow pace of late morning walks, protein pumped smoothies, naps (for him), cleaning (for me), and time to process and dream again.
The chemo is done. The kids are on I-26 coming home. Honestly, I am glad for the end of this chemo-cation.
