January 25, 2011

I didn’t really mean to, but we drove past a cemetary and it was just a huge field of ugly, fake flowers.  And I do not want to be buried like that.  So Mom and I talked about what I do want… and while we don’t have all the nitty-gritty ironed out, we do have a good sense for the big picture.

My dogs are so naughty.  Somebody left the dog gate in my bedroom door open today, and they ate my stick candy.  Let me tell you, we had some wild animals in the house today.

My mom wears a mouthpiece to keep her jaw in alignment.  As she was standing outside my door trying to get me up to go to the barbecue joint…

Me: Do you really want my honest opinion?
Mom (cackling): Go for it!
Me: …

I go to a specialty oncology clinic for all my doctor’s appointments and tests.

The paperwork for today’s test asked, “Do you have a history of cancer?”

Nope.  I’m healthy as a horse.  (What do you think?!  Of course I have a history of cancer!  Otherwise I wouldn’t be here!)
