Thinking about New Year´s promises. No more.

I have finished cooking jam. My legs and feet hurt a lot after staying standing in front of the stove for a long time. In fact, my feet and part of my legs hurt me always because I have peripheral polyneuropathy as a side effect of the chemotherapy. It doesn´t help much to stand for over an hour cleaning apricots and after that stirring them and canning them. So from now on, I will not make apricot jams anymore. I can still make some pickles (not much). They are easier to make and they can be done at any time, when Leticia is helping me. The apricots will be there for anyone of my friends and daughters who want to come and get them. Dear friends, I´m done with it all. Please remind me of this next year, just in case I forget

I made big jars for everyone (friends and daughters). I also made several smaller jars to open on Tuesdays for Hector when they come. No one can help me, dearest. I wish there was a big pain killer. The doctors gave Leticia the strongest there is for a pain in one of her legs. I should not whine. Leticia hurts too and she works.
At your age, I could still jump and run most of the time although I had had my back surgery by then. I don´t like to be one of those crying people, but I confess that the side effects of chemotherapy are many yet I have to thank that I´m here.
