The family parties continued on Easter Sunday as the Hoefens, Simpsons, Houdacs and Grandma Auble all joined to celebrate the holiday at the Simpson’s farm. Our family always puts together an amazing spread for every gathering that I always look forward to days in advance. But my new diet made it difficult to watch everyone else eat the incredible sausage, ham, homemade breads and deserts. However, once again Mom pulled through for me with organic scalloped potatoes. This combined with all of the other veggies still made an excellent meal.
It was more apparent than ever that we were now the adults, and a new generation of kids ruled the house. The “cousins,” Justin, Evan, Owen, Audrey, and Tyson were having a blast running around playing with each other. Then Uncle Kevin took them outside to explore the farm. The gigantic tractors turned into the ultimate playground as they climbed around and even cruised around the farm.
We hated to miss desert, but Shannon and I had to split early as I was just overcome with fatigue and feeling some discomfort associated with the drugs…we couldn’t reach home soon enough. Poor Shan had to make the drive back to Pultneyville by herself as I couldn’t keep my eyelids open; it was probably best for both of us that I just conk out. At home, I was starting to get a little concerned about all of the fatigue experienced over the last couple days. It was a noticeable change from prior days and I wasn’t sure if it was my meds, new diet, the cancer, or just a lack of sleep overall finally catching up with me? It was a sleepy Easter for me, but I hope everyone had a great weekend.
