A Booby Update…

No, not those kind…

But parts of me (not my feet) might have been a little blue as they got pulled and pushed and squished into the cold glass and metal of the mammography machine yesterday.  Good news, the radiologist did not see anything to cause concern, declaring me momentarily clear and cancer free.  Yay me!!

But as anyone who’s gone through something similar (or maybe has a smidgen of anxiety issues), there’s always a niggling little thought in the back of my mind that they might have missed something or something is there and it’s too small to be seen yet.  I even asked my internist why they don’t just do some kind of scan of my whole body.  She smiled nicely and said in my case it wouldn’t be helpful.

I tell myself to stop the worry, tamp down the crazy and get on with life.  Which I’ve been learning to do pretty well.  I call it my new normal.  But I admit I sometimes need a Xanax — actually, sometimes hubby begs me to take one — to drift peacefully off to sleep…

Seriously, though, life is very good and I’m feeling great!

I did go to the grocery store pre-storm, but no Facebook post!

Texted the kids once to see if anyone was going to work and make sure the grandkids were all home from school!

And here’s my old, arthritic Chief, trying to figure out what to do with this snow!  We are up to 10 and a half inches (on top of the four we had) and expecting three inches more by the end of Sunday.  Crazy weather!

Wish You Were Here…

Instead of me!  I’m home in IL from Hawaii, just in time for THIS!  At least hardly anybody is going anywhere today and I have groceries in the house.

The picture on the left is my front yard and you can see how much snow is on the bench.  The other picture is the hot tub and that’s the grill on the left.

My poor old dog followed me out while I was trying to shovel him a path cause we have about 9 inches of snow and expecting more all weekend.  He, of course, had to be first and plunged into the snow that was up to his tummy and just stood in one spot until I shoveled him out!
