Good News

I went to the doctor and he told me that there wasn't any cancer and I will be going back to work in four weeks. I was sure that if there was cancer he would have gotten a hold of me a lot sooner so I wasn't worried about it. There was some pre-cancer stuff and some other things going on but it is all gone now so now all I have to do is heal up.

When I went to the doctor I was excited because it was my first extended drive (a whole 15 minutes one way. Woo Hoo!) and after the doctor I went shopping and really enjoyed myself..... for a while and then I started going downhill fast. By the time I got home I was tired and not feeling good at all. I had been planing on going on an hour and a half trip the next day but I changed my mind real fast and the trip was canceled. I think I'll try again in a couple weeks. In the mean time I will make some of the small trips and get myself built up.

Oh no she didn't!

This is my "Momma" dog, Suki. Now, Suki is very cute but she has an attitude about having her picture taken and..... letting anyone she hasn't accepted get close to her. She looks so mean in this picture and I guess this is what she looks like to people she doesn't want to be around BUT once she decides she loves you she will remember you for life! When I first got her I was the only one she would let touch her. Then my sons found out that if you hold cheese in you fingers she will come over, eat it and after about five or six times she just might let you pet her on her head. It doesn't take long after that for her to fall in love with you. That is one of my boys she is sitting on in the picture and, maybe she thought that the camera in front of my face was something evil. My best friend can't get near her. In fact the only one she can get close to is "Poppa Oso".

Today I was relaxing in the recliner and Suki got off of it to get something to eat and drink. No problem. When she came back she didn't think there was enough room for her to get up on the chair. She can jump up there but she wants to take all the room she feels she needs which is way more than any of the others need. She kept doing a little bark thing to let me know she wanted me to pick her up but I was comfortable and all the other dogs were comfortable and really, she had plenty of room to get up there on her own. Really she did. All of a sudden she turned barking towards the door like someone is there. All of the other dogs go flying off of the chair and as the ones that were on the back of the chair are flying off she is flying onto the chair! I really could have busted a gut laughing (my stomach was cut from here to there a week and a half ago). She snuggled up to me and I was still giggling trying not to involve my stomach in any of this and all the while the other dogs are still barking at the door and looking at each other to see if anyone knows why they are barking. I wish I had it on video. They finally gave up and got back on the chair. I knew she was smart but darn! She really faked them out good!

Welcome to my blog

I am home for a few weeks after having major surgery and, having a lot of time on my hands I started to read a lot of blogs. The more I read the more I thought that I might be able to do it too. I could write down all of my thoughts and the funny things that happen to me and maybe, I will make someone laugh and maybe, brighten their day a little bit, or not. I might not be as funny to others as I am to myself. I mean, I really crack myself up sometimes but I notice that most of the time I am the only one laughing.

I'll tell you a little bit about myself. I live in a very, very, ultra small town in Missouri. In fact if the road didn't curve I could stand in my front yard and take a picture of the whole town. Yeah, the little curve in the road makes the town look larger. Yeah, right.

I have been divorced for the last 13 or more years and I was surprised when I realized that I had never, ever, ever, lived on my own before! My sons are full grown and have families of their own and they really don't want to live with good old Mom and I just haven't found anyone that I want to give up my freedom too (now that I am used to having freedom). I was scared at first and didn't know how I was going to do it on my own but it has turned out to be so good and I am so happy to be alone that sometimes I'll burst out singing and there isn't anyone here to tell me to shut up! It is wonderful.

I can't be called a "Cat Woman" because I never really got very attached to cats but, dogs are a whole different thing. I have six Chihuahuas! They are so awesome! I love that they are small and cannot get on the dinner table. They all sleep with me so there is no need of an electric blanket in the winter and if they are in my way they don't get mad if I give them a little push. In fact they don't get mad at me for anything I do. I work 12 hour shifts and they are so happy to see me when I get home. I left them home when I went to Oklahoma to visit my sister and her family and, although they didn't like my best friend coming over to check on them they didn't take it out on me when I got home. Are you noticing what I am saying here? If I had a partner and left him like I do my dogs there would be lots of problems. Am I being selfish now in my old age? I am thinking that once the old age hit me I got tired of putting myself last all of the time.

I hope that my bad grammar and spelling (I am using spell check but, sometimes things slip by) hasn't put you off. It has been a long time since I have been to school and I must admit that I was not a good student at all. For me school was all about boys, boys, boys.

Well, I will post this now and see if anyone reads this thing.
