It doesn’t matter that you “know” something in your head, the heart with its “feelings center” can overrule you. I had my annual cancer checkup this week. I had breast cancer over 13 years ago. Checkups always make me nuts. Over the years I’ve had to go back for further tests and biopsies because the mammogram wasn’t clear or looked funny or something. None of them turned out to be cancer but they all caused quite a bit of worry. (Yes, I know that worry doesn’t accomplish anything. That’s just another thing that my head knows but my heart doesn’t!) I wish I could approach this calmly. This year they have a new mammogram machine that takes “slices.” The radiologist reads it while you are there. I was cleared on the spot. That was worth another mocha latte to celebrate! (It was too early for a margarita!) Woot woot!
Another crimp in the taxes – I have to calculate the cost basis of a decades old stock plan I had with a former employer. Guess I’ll be pulling that number out of my butt! They do need to simplify this!
The warmest day this week was full of rain. I could have used some sunshine! The weatherman said we only had 5 full sunny days so far this winter. Boogers!
When I was a kid, we were encouraged to give something up for lent. I haven’t done that in decades. I can’t say that I did it with gusto when I was a kid either. In school we were encouraged to give up candy. The school stopped selling candy for lent but sold pretzel sticks, which I preferred. I never cared for candy so it was easy peasy.
Yesterday I walked through the dining room to see this. This past weekend we had guests in so everything was cleaned thoroughly as one of the guests has an allergy to cats. It doesn’t last long here!
