There are just been so much to do the last couple of weeks, and no time for writing. My family is getting ready to leave on a trip to Ireland, so there may not be a lot more blogging that gets done in August, we'll see.
I got my first post chemo hair cut on Saturday! It was fun to get it shaped up some, and now I will just have to get it through some awkward stages before it finally grows out. We've got a long way to go but slowly and surely it's getting there. For anyone who is wondering, both the color and texture are different than they used to be. I used to have very thick, coarse, dark hair. Now it's lighter in color and it's much more fine. It also has a lot more curl to it than it used to. It will be interesting to see if it gets closer to my normal hair as it grows out or if chemo really will completely change it. Weird!

She was friendly, but you can also tell that she's getting wiser in her old age. I petted her for quite a while before grabbing her halter. As soon as she saw it in my hand she became "hard to catch." We played ring around mommy for a bit before I dropped the lead rope, put the halter behind my back, and started scratching at her bum. Once I got up by her head I was able to get the halter on. We did a short leading lesson, and she was pretty good. A couple of times she didn't want to walk and as soon as I put the rope around her butt she would trot off. She definitely knows she doesn't like the butt rope. Silly girl!
