Oh how I miss him so! Can I make it the whole week with out my honey? Anyway, I had to go to work today and get some much needed training; so I will take another day off this week; haven't figured out which one I can; perhaps this Friday. The class I had today was pretty much all day and I almost got to have a good bye lunch with my honey (he left for Wisconsin today for his Grandfather's funeral). He wasn't able to make it up for lunch and I tried so hard to not cry because I didn't get to say good bye to him.
He knew he would need to go and apparently he needed to leave right away today. We talked and talked about him going and I supported him seeing his family. Because of my sickness, I feel so horrible that he has not gone to see them in several years. I haven't been back to see my own family since Nov. 2005.
I'm due but I just can't stand the stress of traveling and what if I'm in severe pain and can't use my medicine? Waiting in those long, long lines, security, and the whole process can be so demeaning and can really make you feel like a second class citizen. It's like we are all cows and out the window our Constitution. It's as if we all were responsible for those attacks. I know they have to be careful and times have changed. It's used to not be this bad but luckily I have had family come visit me; I really miss my brother like crazy and have not seen him since my last visit. I can't believe it has been 3 years without seeing my brother; almost torturous. Talking on the phone is one thing, but just being around someone is something else!)
My husband and I at least got to go on a fun bike ride yesterday prior to the Super Bowl. We stopped at an Army Surplus store and a few Super Bowl Parties. I had met the manager of that Steven's Creek Surplus just before Christmas and told him of my situation. We actually talked for a while about Cancer, politics and so much more. Anyway, he recognized me and saw us looking at the doo rags (a rag to wear just under your helmet). He gave me a bag full of doo rags- all colors. It was so cool and they are all really awesome doo rags. He was giving them to children at Christmas and we seemed to appreciate them even more. What comes around goes around!)
OK, now back to work & the funny story. I normally refrain from talking about work here, but since I had such a great laugh; I just can't resist. Well, instead of my husband coming up for a good bye lunch, I had a nutritious lunch; a vitamin shake, a fresh juice from the cafeteria, and some cooked vegetables. I was enjoying my lunch with a few of my co-workers including this young researcher who was trying out a vegan diet. It was mostly just us girls and him.
Apparently he has tried a few diets (2 weeks at a time) and this one too, it had only been 2 weeks (that's actually pretty good). I may have ruined it for him. Anyway, he was talking about the diet and how he was planning to eat all this tofu and soy stuff. I started thinking about why I can't handle a whole lot of soy (emulates estrogen and could make my cancer grow like crazy); but anyway, I blurted out (uncontrollably, just like me) "doesn't eating lots of soy, make your boobs get big?". With that, we all (except him), burst out laughing. I think I laughed for 10 minutes strait and tried not to for the rest of my class which was another 4 hours. One of my other co-workers had told me that man boobs are called Moobs. Sometimes funny things happen and I can laugh about them for days.
Anyway, when I got home from work, I took Blue Belle out for a few walks, did some much needed house cleaning and tried to sort out problems with this blog. I had changed the template a few times (even had a pretty one for a few days) and it's still kinda sorta not working. I had to change it back to that same boring "scribe" template. I turned off the Adsense with hopes that those with Internet Explorer can once again view my blog. Sometimes the Adsense acts up and in Internet Explorer it just can't pull up those pages. It will get stuck and it seems likes its flashing or the screen is flashing (it makes these noises), and then it just can't pull up the page. I can always pull it up on my Macs at home and even on my iPhone. Here's to my blog not being boring!)
