My marks are done, my room is clean and my photocopying for next September is done. Today is the first day of my summer vacation - I am officially a woman of leisure. The next nine weeks are mine to do with as I will. I hope to get some sewing, gardening and painting (home dec) done.
I just wish I could feel more upbeat. Although Simon is still eating well and relishing his morning walks, he is showing the effects of the lymphoma. He sleeps most of the day now and the lumps in his throat are quite large (making it a bit difficult for him to breathe). Most days I am able to remain positive and thankful that I get this chance to say goodbye to him. Other days I am in a rage at the injustice of it all. And on even other days, I am melancholy and sad.
Thank you to everyone that has left a message (either on my last post or via email). I cannot tell you how comforting it is to know that other people understand my sorrow. Every word has meant more to me than you'll ever know.
In closing, I want to send out a huge Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canucks (both real and honourary). And to end with a chuckle, check out The Canada Song, as sung by my favourite MST3K* trio, Servo, Crow and Mike:
* MST3K = Mystery Science Theatre 3000; one of my all time favourite shows!
