Just stopping in…

To say that not much has changed on any front. I spent the last part of my week cleaning and throwing stuff away and reorganizing the whole kitchen. I tend to do mindless busy junk like that when I’m upset, and things have been one major upset after another the last few weeks.
Apparently no news is good news. The cancer, so far, hasn’t spread; but again, they keep telling us they won’t know for sure until they actually go in to operate. Which they still haven’t scheduled. So we are still in limbo. I find myself staying away from the hill more and more, because there doesn’t seem to be much to say anymore. Everyone’s handling it just fine except for me, and I’m tired of being the only person with emotions for a ten mile radius, so it’s easier to stay home until there’s something useful to do.
But, this whole cancer thing really has shaken me up enough to the point that I’m actually going to go the doctor. It’s been almost eight months that I’ve been dealing with really weird symptoms and haven’t done much about it. The one time I did go in, the doctor ordered a complete blood work up and full physical, then changed her mind and wanted to do even more extensive testing after some of my results came back. I “accidentally” missed my follow up appointments and avoided her repeated phone calls until she eventually sent me an angry letter and then gave up. This has made me realize it’s time to deal with whatever’s going on and stop being a chicken. I don’t like it, but whatever.
On the crafting side of things, we made more marble magnets and watercolored and spent lots of time getting ready for next school year by making decorations for the big bulletin boards we have for school information. While productive, again, it feels like just busy work, not really accomplishing anything of great importance.
On the techy side of things I went last night and got a huge hard drive (bye bye little stupid 60! lol) and a new video card. We stood there debating on which card to get and eventually went with the most expensive one because apparently that’s how guys think. Whatver, it was all easy to install and we were able to play the new game DH just had to have, so things are all good. Finally, I don’t have to worry about space and can get around to actually organizing the stuff I really want to keep…
Okay, this is seriously the most boring post ever, so I’ll put you out of your misery and say good night (good morning, since it’s well after one, but who cares, right?) I’ll be back soon with pictures and projects and hopefully good news updates!
