Radiation starts soon

The radiation oncologist's office called and I have an appointment on Friday at 11:15am with the oncologist and the radiation technician. After that, we'll mark me up for radiation and we will start radiation that day beginning at 1:15pm. That is much faster than I thought it would be - I didn't think that I would get in so quickly. I don't know how many radiation treatments I'll have. I think it will be 5 or 10. I hope that the pain flare is over (or hasn't started) when we go to North Carolina. When a treatment works the pain usually gets much worse before getting much better.

I started taking the Ritalin today and didn't really notice any difference. I'll have to see over the next couple of days if there's any change. I really, really hope it works.

I got to spend pretty well the entire afternoon taking photographs. I have about 60-odd pieces of jewelry that I'd like to have up in my etsy store before the sale this weekend. I did all of the coloured background pics; now all I have to do is edit all of the pictures. I hope to do that tomorrow and Friday to have the stuff up by Friday. Given that there are so many pieces, I'll probably end up adding a few on Saturday.

Because there are so many pairs of earrings, I'll need to split them up somehow. Each item can only go in one section... so is it better to separate the earrings by colour or by length? What do you think?

My bias is that they should be sorted by colour rather than by length. If I'm looking for something special to go with a particular outfit, I usually have a colour more firmly in mind than a style/length.

Just my 2 cents!

When I purchase jewelry, color is usually the first thing I look for as it must go with my wardrobe!

Hope the radiation helps *immediately*!

Definitely colour. You could also sort by materials. Glass beads vs stones or something like that? Just thinking out loud.

When I'm in pain, my body responds by making me go to sleep. So maybe the radiation will help that too? Is it starting tomorrow Friday? Wow, that is really soon.
