Radiation

I have completed 18 treatments of radiation and so far so good! I am starting to develop a few minor side effects, but nothing to stop my day. So far the worst of it is the lack of taste. EVERYTHING is so bland now. It makes me not want to eat. I have been trying new things to see if I can get any flavour out of it, but so far nothing is too exciting. On the bright side, my taste for sugar is still somewhat ok, so sweet things are better than anything else. Unfortunately, I have never really had a sweet tooth, unless it chocolate was involved, so I'm not going to force it. Besides the taste, I have a bit of a dry mouth and throat. I can't really stand air conditioning as it just makes me cough. I keep water with me at all times for the dry mouth. I keep drinking it and I keep peeing it back out. Ha!

Flooding

If you follow the news at all (which I really don't) you may have heard something about a ton of rain falling upon Burlington, WI and the Fox River. I don't live in Burlington, but I do live next to the Fox River downstream from Burlington. I can't believe how much rain we got! Eight inches actually. It just kept coming down. Streets, yards, and basements were flooded EVERYWHERE! Luckily I don't have a basement, but I do have a yard and live on a street. Both were flooded. But you see the problem with living off a river is the true flooding doesn't happen until all that water flows into the river. They say it was a 100 - 200 year flood. Luckily for me, I live on high enough ground to not have the flood water reach my house. Unfortunately, I live on a dead end street that connects to a street that follows the river and I don't own a truck. If I were smart I would have moved my car to the street somewhere out of the flood area, but if I would have done that I don't think I would have moved it far enough. The river was up higher that the flood maps showed. I'm glad I just kept it parked. I have a couple of awesome parents that picked me up after I trekked through crawfish and turtle infested waters so I could still make my radiation appointments.

What I find really funny is I live not far from HWY 50 in Kenosha County and I can hear the cars driving up and down the road. It's been a revolving door since Thursday because the road is closed. There are detour signs posted, but apparently people don't believe them. My boyfriend and I took a little stroll up to the highway through the flood water and it looked like a little parking lot. People were standing next to their cars and swearing and nobody knew where to go. They would try to go down our road, only to be greeted by more water and quickly back out. It is Sunday and I finally have a route out of my house, but HWY 50 will probably be closed until Tuesday. I guess the door will keep spinning for a couple more days.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live!

I wanted to mention something about this because I went with my mom last night. OMG it was so much fun! If you get a chance to see it live, DO IT! I laughed so hard. I got her a VIP ticket because I know she loves the show so much. We did meet and greet with the Q&A and got a little goodie bag. I thought of a really good question afterwards, but oh well.
