April 28th, 2012

383. Volunteering at Habitat for Humanity. Good touchy feely fun.
384. Getting back on my Friday nights with Cooper and Chandler schedule.
385. A surprise visit from my parents.
386. Finally coming to terms with this surgery thing. I will go in, have this shit removed and then have three weeks off work. And I will deal with it, and I will be fine.
387. Being in a spot in my life where I can take care of myself, even when road bumps come my way.
388. A nice run this morning, and sweating through my shirts.
389. Watching reruns I can't bear to delete off my DVR.
390. Tator tots for dinner.
391. Getting my week one assignments done without too much trouble - now here's hoping the rest of the term goes that easy. Especially since I'll be in the hospital for part of it!
392. My friend Leanna and her amazing braid talent.
393. My co-worker Olivia, who bought me a card and People magazine. So nice.
394. A good day of getting all my housework, laundry, homework and some extra stuff done.
395. A good night's sleep after many, many nonsleeping nights.

April 28th, 2012 - the confession edition

382. Sometimes you just need to get some things off your chest. So here goes...
  • I litter. I litter a lot.
  • I am absolutely addicted to Long Island Medium. I love Theresa.
  • I only wash my hair every three days.
  • I am obsessed with designer purses and expensive hair products, but I will buy anything and everything else at Wal-mart.
  • I am scared of running out of gas, so I try to never go below a half tank.
  • I consider sunflower seeds dinner.
  • The only thing I cannot give up for my diet is cheese. So I will not try.
  • I still think I am a cow. I hope this goes away and I don't develop some weird body disorder.
  • My number one biggest fear in the world is waking up during surgery. I didn't realize this fear until I found out I have to have surgery soon and that fear keeps me up at night.

370. My sister being so patient with me.
371. Listening to Seether, Nickleback and Too Short at very high volumes.

380. Long Island Medium. I freaking love Theresa.

April 12, 2012 - the "it might be a tumor" edition

346. It might be a tumor. Key word might. I'm hoping I just gained some weight in my neck in one isolated location.
347. At least it's not on my lady bits - I imagine a tumor near or on any lady part would suck.
348. My sister is such a good sister/nurse whenever I'm going through something like this.
349. My doctor telling me repeatedly that it's not cancer.
350. My doctor leaning in and whispering "you know you aren't going to die, right?" when I couldn't stop crying.
351. Already naming it Timmy the Tumor - now I just want him to go away.
352. My dad texting me every morning to say he loves me.
353. My mom actually listening to my sister when she told her to leave me alone because I don't want to talk about it.
354. I get to have my first MRI - that's gotta be fun, right?
355. Mama Jan telling me she'll pray for me.
356. I got to catch back up with the ultrasound tech who delivered bad news to me in the past - it was a game to see what rude things I could get her to say this time. She did not disappoint.
357. Knowing that tomorrow is my MRI, and we'll figure this thing out soon.

April 5th, 2012

328. Treating myself to McDonalds for lunch.
329. Remembering two hours later why I avoid fast food. I feel like I could take a nap! So sluggish.
330. The fact that I convinced Missy Hardersen to read a book, when she never reads.
331. Finally working up the courage to run outside, and finding it easier than a treadmill.
332. Reconnecting with Blink - their songs are AMAZING to run to!
333. Inching my way through the work week so I can finally get to my three day weekend.

April 3rd, 2012


312. Surprise visits.
313. Speaking in code.
314. An awesome weigh in.
315. Playing Angry Birds with Coop, where he holds the phone and I hold his finger to fling the birds.
315. Seeing how excited Channy gets when his mom shows up.
316. Lake Zorinsky, which has become me and Missy's stomping grounds.
317. The buffalo chicken pizza at Varsity. To. Die. For.
318. Getting all my homework done early on Sunday so I could have dinner with my parents.
319. Sitting around my parent's kitchen table.
320. Running my next Coach to 5K workout and actually not dying - I may just be able to get through this thing!
321. A long walk with Katie after that. Who earns 12 activity points in one day? Oh, I do.
322. My dad ripped a skin tag off my neck when I was whining about it. Ripped it off. And then he hurried me to a chair and lied to me about how much it was bleeding. Gotta love my dad.
323. Finally just telling him off. Finally!
324. When I told my Dad about telling him off, Dad wanted his phone number. And Little Brother got all rammy. And Step-mom got all mouthy. It's nice to have so many people who are willing to beat up guys who are mean to me.
325. Two more weeks of these classes, then break week!
326. A three day weekend is coming up...thank God!
327. This quote from my obsessive reading of Fifty Shades of Grey...which pretty much sums up life. "Men aren't really that complicated. They are very simple, literal creatures. They usually mean what they say. And we spend hours trying to analyze what they've said, when really it's obvious. If I were you, I'd take him literally. That might help."
