great news

Have great news...the cyst on my ovary is gone!  They  have been tracking this since spring.  Yesterday I had another cervical ultrasound and it revealed those results.  I am very grateful that I went for a second opinion since they wanted to remove it and my ovary last month.  They had thought it was a type that wasn't functional, which would then mean suspicious has been good to me.  :)

A breath of fresh air...

It's intriguing how certain people enter our life and bring with them a whisper of fresh air. We hold on to that air and everything seems brighter for some reason.....and then we wait for that time for those to enter again and bring that energy that feels so good.

Thoughts found and written 2/1/83

My mind goes weary without you by my side.  Just the touch of your skin sets my heart on fire - and the feeling of your kisses sends chills up my spine.  I don't know how I survived without you before this - for everything I live for is for you.......with you by my side nothing can go wrong.  You have a place in my heart which keeps me going - and living - and enjoying - and seeing life as beautiful in times of sorrow or happiness - and loving, which is the greatest gift of all you gave to me.  You offered yourself to me as a whole and set upon me a spell that blinds everything but you.

Carol -  Written 2 months after our wedding.

A great Day

What a nice day it is outside.  I had beautiful skies to look at as I did my morning walk.  With this cooler weather the sky has been so clear.  I've had the fireplace on the past two days and I love the cozy feeling.  Halloween is this week and I look forward to all the little ones running from house to house with a big smile on their faces.  A day that brings back good memories.

Frank Sinatra's Life Musical Production

We went to the musical production of Frank Sinatra's life last night at the Canton Theatre.  First, dinner was at a coffee shop that was unique and set up with a live band to play later in the evening.  The musical was great with three entertainers singing his songs through his life story.  The reception after was a catered event of sweets and drinks.  I will have to say I had one too many kahlua and creames.  I'm sure feeling it today!  lol

Hope is a good thing...and good things never die.

Get busy living......or get busy dying.

Inadequacies in one's life can only be damaging to your self exteem if you let it.  Why then do we take something that is said in jest and take it to heart?  Why would certain things stand out that people say when you are overwhelmingly positive about most aspects in your life?  Shrug it off?...yes...we will only feel inferior if we let ourselves.

I'm sitting here filling out the forms for my doctors visit tomorrow.  This is my second opinion doctor for Gynecologic Oncology for the cyst on my ovary.  I'm sitting here worried, scared and wondering if I'll be able to get through the visit  calm and with a sharp mind to get the answers to the questions I will be asking.  I had to get out the letter from my sister's doctor on the type of her cancer.  Reading that letter puts worry in me and thoughts in my head of what our family went through 6 years ago.  I hope and pray things will go in my favor......

I'm sitting here listening to "Get Down Tonight" and it brings back memories.  It makes me want to get up and dance and get down.  lol   I heard it in a movie that we watched tonight, so I thought I would download it.  Good ole Kazza Lite.  What would I do without it?!

Switched over to a Prince song..."I Can't Make You Love Me".  I've yet to see him in concert.  One of these days......

Well, I'm going to see John Mayer in concert next month.  My daughter wanted  desperately to go see him,  so I figured I'd take her.  It's been awhile since I went to a concert like that.  Should be fun!  He's coming to the Phillips Arena in Atlanta November 21st.  I think she's counting down the days to the concert.  lol

I took her to the doctors the other day and found out she has strept throat.  It's killing her not being able to practice her basketball the last couple of days.  She plays and practices all year around so it's in her routine.  Take that routine away from her and look out! 

Then she has been stressing about her SAT testing and what she needs to get into the college that she wants.  Kelly is taking a 2 month course at a local college to prepare for the test.  She wants a private out of state school...for pre-med.....should I return to work now?  lol  Bottom line is...I'm so proud of her.


Quote for today: Learn the art of patience. Apply disipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal.  Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement, and failure.  Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.  Brian Adams

I worked outside all of yesterday and planted my pansies.  They look great!  It's still a little early for the tulips.   Maybe in a couple of weeks for those.  I love it in springtime when they are all in full bloom.  Last year my neighbor asked if I was going to be planting my 14,000 pansies.  Sarcastic remark?  I think so.  Jealous?  I think that also.  Why are people like that?!.....

Dan's Birthday

Here's Daniel on his 10th birthday!  He's growing up so fast!  Dan loved the new in-line skates he received for his birthday and the train cake that I made.  He had a great day and is waiting for his brother to come home from college this weekend so we can all go out to dinner for his birthday. Looks like he picked Macarooni Grill as the spot.  Yum Yum
