After my chest xrays, I texted my friend: "I can tell from my xray that one boob is bigger and hangs a little lower than the other," and she responded with "Is Jimmy Hoffa hidden under there?"

Well, it's official. Bears suck. Oh, I'll still watch them all season. My punishment for living in the Chicago area. As if the cold, snow and ice wasn't enough.

Damn non-existent offensive line.

Hey...How good are the Colts, eh? I'm loving watching Peyton Manning carve up America's team, and in Dallas...even better.....lol...

I haven't finalized it yet-- just set it up to keep myself occupied, and it was a concrete way to not crap all over FB.

But I will post it here!

True story.

My ex-husbands 2nd wife ( previously a good friend of mine as well) was a long time smoker. She had a bout of pneumonia which was not responding well to drugs so they took a chest x-ray and found some shit on her lung. That turned out to be a lucky break because the doctors caugt it early enough to effectively treat her. I heard the story perhaps 3 years ago and it was not real new at the time. As far as I know she is still around. Her LinkedIn account is still current and showing her working.

How is your Mom taking this?

Just caught up....sorry, Angela.
Hope it's all stupid and easily fixed!

I had a suspicious liver lesion that was an anomaly--they happen. If not, hope they caught it early and you beat this mother!

Good point, chel!

PE: I think my mom is a wreck because having nursed my dad through his cancer and now her boyfriend, she knows what her kid is in for if it's cancer. She texted me that she was thinking of me every minute.

I feel like shit tonight and I made her brownies with walnuts I toasted. Is that insane or waht? I've swept up cat hair, picked up, etc., so she doesn't see how bad I've let the place go in the last two weeks when i've been sick.

Stop cleaning and rest. Let her help you, she's your mom. It will probably help her deal helping do mundane stuff.

Agree.

We have a family story about how my mom came over to my apartment to nurse me through some bad flu not long after I separated from my ex. My entire kitchen was cleaned, cabinets relined and the old copper tea kettle was shined for the very first time.

Doing mundane stuff allows you the solace of habit, something you can DO without thinking.

It is now 11:51. Have one more piece of chocolate and go to bed

Great Pyrenees is my FAVORITE breed in the world! I grew up with them! They are actaully pretty adaptable. Their fur is like a Thermos, keeps them cool when it's hot and hot when it's cool. But if I get one (probably my next dog), I will probably have him shaved in the summer. The one in the picture gets shaved inteh summer because she gets sweaty and itchy if we don't. THe vet advised it.

Absolutely!

And, FWIW Angela -- know someone who received a diagnosis and the doctors were so off, so wrong! This after getting 2 opinions of the same thing but the treatment wasn't helping her. So she went to a better place and THEY found out what was really wrong and she's finally on the mend.

It's not unusual for them to not guess correctly, especially before they have all the tests in.

I'm going to think positive about this whole thing.

Plus, Red is strong.

I have a nephew who, I just found out, is moving to Hawaii.

Hmmm, might be nice having a relative in Hawaii to visit!

Yeah, I was the droll cleaner-upper as a kid. Ugh! They don't live long. We had one die at 8 and the other, I believe was 6. They're such a perfect combo of sweet and protective, though, and so beautiful, I can't stand it! I have another dog (a Heinz 57 mix), because I like having 2 at once. Plus, they keep each other company. My ex has a Golden (that he got in the split only because he has a large yard and, at the time, I didn't) and he got a sweet choc lab last year. Mt daughter is awash in dogs!!!

..6?....I'd still be grieving over that young....i guess we've been blessed that 12 is the youngest, over the years....I'd love to have a Golden, since my wife is in charge of fur management and collection....lol....
