Stuff N Stuff

We were hit with a foot of snow on Thursday.  At some points it was snowing 2-3" per hour.  There was no way I'd get home, so when they closed the lab at 10:00, my employer put me and three coworkers up at a nearby hotel.  It was total insanity.  The three of them had to push my car as often as it moved under it's own power.  By last night, I was super happy to be at home.

Monica was supposed to go to Mizzou (in Columbia, MO) for a band event tomorrow.  They were to rehearse tomorrow, sleep in a dorm, rehearse Monday and then perform Monday night.  The other girl invited is a friend of Monica's and her mother was going to transport them.  There is now another snow storm heading this way and it is supposed to hit Monday evening.  This made us very nervous so I was happy when they called a bit ago and told us they were postponing it.

A week from today, I'll be in Texas visiting Brooke.  I'm travelling with my friend Tammy, who is visiting her son in San Antonio while I hang with Brooke a couple of hours away.  Then we'll travel home together.  I'm super excited.  We'll get back on Monday afternoon, and then I'm off work Tuesday for doctor's appointments.  The annual visits are approaching and I'm getting more nervous by the day.

I know two people who have gone through breast cancer treatment at the same time as me and who have recently found out they have metastatic cancer.  Both have it in their bones and one of them in her lungs, too.  This freaks me out hardcore.  There is nothing I can do except stay vigilant with exams and report anything new that pops up.  That, and enjoy every minute of every day.  I try my best not to dwell on the what-ifs, but my mind still goes there several times a day.

NASCAR is back for another season, starting with the running of the Daytona 500 tomorrow.  My family can utter a collective groan, but I'm thrilled.  It makes everyone happy that we have two TVs in the house.  Combine this season starter with the new season of Duck Dynasty starting on Wednesday and you have one happy redneck chick right here.

Wow, that was a lot of subject hopping.  I guess maybe I should update more often and that wouldn't happen, but that's what's going through my mind this afternoon.

I'm pretty sure you will freak out for the rest of your life, every time you think "cancer". I would. Hey, I want a picture of you as you look NOW. Take several shots until you find one you love. I want it for my blog, because I don't want the cancer picture there any more. Cliff loves your red-headed self.

Get that picture to your mom, cause I want to see it too :-).

Cancer is a freaky word to everyone, so, you know, in your case it will always be there. But you beat it.

Subject hopping can be good & informative. ~Mary
