My family and friends are all immediately aware of scan results. I just returned from Houston Tuesday which means scans went VERY WELL on Monday. It was the first time in a long time that I didn't even shed a tear. No lumps, bumps, spots or wiggles to have to probe and test this time around so I will be celebrating Christmas worry-free (well, as worry-free as I get, which is never fully free of all worry, but close enough for me for now). AND... even better, I can make more plans! I always have a very difficult time making plans dated after scans as I'm never sure of my return date and hate to have to cancel anything because of medical issues. I don't mind canceling things, but for medical?! It's simply a sinking feeling to have to do that. Now, to cancel because of mood or bad hair or a to-do list or basically any other reason... no problem... rude maybe, but preferable over surgery.
Tonight, out to dinner with new neighbors. Tomorrow, work then out to dinner with two other couples, also neighbors. Next Friday begins winter break for the schools so prepare for kids! Next Saturday, plans with family. The following Monday plans with other family, then Tuesday is cookie day with the BFF and kids... the list goes on! THANK GOD for good scan results! But this is not always the case. Sometimes the scan results are not good at all. It's then when we most need to start planning happy days. So plan anyway! (As I shall start doing now that I've typed this out to everyone else - "do as I say, not as I do" no more!)
Today's agenda: PAINT! I plan to finish some commission work for a local restaurant today so that I can drop them tomorrow morning and then have dinner there tomorrow without cringing about not having all the artwork completed... I'm really feeling cowardly because of this dawdling of mine on this project, but I'm looking forward to painting today after I post this. While I like to think about the serene, uninterrupted perfect painting experience, my mind is always twitching around bringing up issues I don't want to deal with which lead to internal arguments. Focus on good, if only one day at a time.
Today is... HAPPY! ...and your day is as well!
