Things that make me smile

Opening the door and being greeted by Bug holding a bouquet of flowers for me on the day of my biopsy. Apparently he told everyone at the shop that the flowers were "for my mommy because she got a shot."

And earlier that day before/during the biopsy what really made me smile: Valium.

Getting a call from the radiologist that starts off with "I've got great news for you..."

Watching (and re-watching) It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

Ending the work week by getting a new phone. I finally ditched my EIGHT-year-old phone and got an iPhone. Seriously my old phone wouldn't die, I never replaced the battery and it kept working fine. Okay, so it was only slightly less cumbersome than Maxwell Smart's shoe phone.

In any event, my decision was easily made to part with the antique when it took FIVE days to get a message from a doctor and I received a $100 Verizon gift card in the mail. I feel like this it's Christmas morning with my new toy, I mean phone.

Starting the work week with hot chocolate because the temp was in the 40s.

Our little girl is getting better. She has been very sick and lost so much weight but now she's putting the pounds back on and is her sweet self.


  1. I'm SO happy that things are okay!!

  2. i am thrilled that you got a good call from the radiologist. since i haven't been by before i have no idea what is going on, but good news is a very good thing and most def something to smile about!!

  3. Ok So I backtracked and read your mammogram post - SO scary having to wait any amount of time for anything, I know - don't these people know we need answers, RIGHT AWAY?!? Really - and how on earth they can see anything on scans I have no idea - but I'm very glad that everything turned out ok :) And welcome to the iphone club! Mine will be pried out of my cold dead hand one day :)
