Yay! We got our general election voting out of the way this morning. We tried yesterday but the lines were ridiculous. They weren’t much better today but we decided to stick it out anyway and after over an hour of waiting at the polling place, the deed was done. Apparently in our county alone, there have been over 5,000 votes cast already, which doesn’t sound like much but it’s a new record for a county with a population of around 200,000. Get out the vote, people!

I had an appointment with my cardiologist last week and he was a bit concerned about how my heart has fared with the amount of chemo drugs I’ve been exposed to over the past eight months. My ECG looked okay and my heart sounds pretty solid but I’m still going back in a couple weeks for an ultrasound just to make sure that the heart muscle hasn’t sustained any damage from the drugs. I am NOT going to worry about this, I am NOT going to worry about this… I’ll just keep repeating this to myself. Honestly, there isn’t anything I can do about it anyway except trust in my doctors’ expertise and hope that God has other plans for me besides a severely weakened heart!

Not much more to report, other than I dug up a video last week on what will probably be the best way to prep my kitchen walls after all the wall paper is gone. I’ve got one more bottle of enzyme solution on order so as soon as that arrives, I can get the last of that cursed paper off the walls. I geeked out in the paint section at Lowe’s a couple weeks ago and have pretty much settled on a paint scheme of pale neutral grey for the walls and a bright white for the cabinets. Hah, cabinets… Now I get to figure out the best way to paint those! Yeah, right…😄😆🤣😱
