What a relief.
It’s Monday and Eric and I spent an amazing weekend in New York City, which we never do. (This was maybe the second time going to NYC for fun since we moved to New York State in 2002–just haven’t wanted to, mostly.) I was pretty low-energy on Friday, when we went, but had plenty of energy on Saturday. We came home Sunday morning. We took the train along the Hudson, which is so beautiful! The ice was amazing.
Today I got back to doing interval exercise (cardio, aerobic) after more than a week off, though I did do some walking in the meantime.
In the city we saw the Henri Matisse Cut-Outs special exhibit at MoMA, went to a play, went to a clothing store I wanted to visit where I found a new kind of clothes to buy, and ate Ethiopian food and Vietnamese food and famous vegan food-truck food. We stayed with a friend (thanks, Mercer!) and took the subway a lot. But also did as much walking as energy allowed. We took a fictional history tour of the High Line and its neighborhood, run by Story Tour, and wandered around in Times Square a bit to see how it has changed. We planned just the right amount and let whim and serendipity guide us the rest of the time.
Before the weekend I spent time feeling fatigued and a bit loopy due to the brain zap & the just-in-case anti-seizure medication. But we still managed to get household things done and do some good Online Writing Workshop work. Chemo started up again uneventfully on Thursday (also this coming Thursday). And that’s the news.
