I picked up Emily this morning and we took a short excursion down to World Market and Trader Joe's in Shrewsbury. It was good to finally get out but I got back just in time since my tummy started to feel upset as I was only a little ways from home. I figured out quickly that it was hormone-influenced since the ol' cramps are ramping up big time.

Well, at least the worst of THAT should be out of the way for the Monday PT, thank goodness. I hope to feel a little better tomorrow so I can go get some soil and flowers over at Home Depot and finally put some pretty touches on the fire escape. The apartment complex doesn't appear to mind floral beautification as long as it isn't excessive and a few of the neighbors have some nice looking greenery going

So what are your plans for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas?

So far I'll be flying solo on Thanksgiving and likely checking in on the neighbor's kitty. Christmas might likely be the same. Between being unable to get a kittysitter and not really having the money (or inclination, really) to travel, it'll be another year of nothing going. I should try to do something, at least so I'll have to ponder.

Why don't we just go sneak up to Canada and steal Justin? C'moooooon! You know ya wannnnaaa


Or maybe at least we can work a trade deal to send them back the "other" Justin

I follow my new dermatologist on FB, the one that excised my pre-cancerous mole and will be doing regular checks. She or her admins posted this thing this morning
June 2nd is National Cancer Survivor Day. Shout out to all #melanoma and other cancer survivors out there! You are so strong and amazing!

I wonder. Does my little mole removal count for me as being a "cancer survivor"? Yeah, I do have a scar and when I raise my arm, you can see a pretty darned funky looking dimple but in the grand scheme of things, it's nothing compared to someone that's had real, invasive surgery and/or radiation or chemo. It's so small and I was very lucky to have caught it before it became "real" cancer.

I certainly don't feel brave or at all worthy of any accolades or credit (aside from getting off my pale ass and finally getting checked out). When I saw things like that before, it was foreign to me. Now it's familiar but not.

Don't know if I'm making any sense here. :/

I would've thought that after more than a year of not taking Metformin that the monthly hell would fade away. Nooope. Still dealing with the gunk, the bloat, the cramps, the nausea and exhaustion and a nasty headache where I sometimes have the little floaty spots that say LAY DOWN to avoid a migraine kicking in. Thankfully I have plenty of sick days. Sure there's tons to do at work but I wouldn't be very useful if I dragged myself there so why bother?

I'd like to write about more but it's as if the brain doesn't want to tell the hands to bother. So for the non-whiny contribution, this video rocks
