how was all my Butterflies weekend???

Thursday i came home to my Dad cleaning out my bird cage, by doing so 1 of my birds got loose outside - i of course think all my animals are my babies, so i turned into hysterics - so who do i call, JOE! - and sure enough, tears rolling down my face and i'm thinking how it's not gonna 'make it' in the wild, JOE finds P.D.!!! - you have no idea - my family was ecstatic! - i swear thank the lord for my Joe!

Friday i took off work and headed down the shore with my whole family (minus my Dad) - which i then took 1 for the team and went into the pool with my Niece (it was COLD from all the rain) - Saturday was filled with a trip to the Popcorn Zoo (i could be there for HOURS, i'm obsessed with the place, it's all hurt/rescued animals, it's more of a rehabilitation center instead of a zoo, i loathe 'real' zoo's) - then lots of swimming with my Niece Cait (she totally turned into a water bug, such an awesome swimmer at 5 yrs old) - later that night was Tiki time (ohhhh the stories i can tell) ...

*@ tiki yes i always make myself at home*
*yup my celery again, i so don't think it's strange, vodka and tonic in 1 hand, celery in the other - it's called off-setting calories*

then Sunday Joe and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary (holy crap, i know, i couldn't believe it was 7 years, i did the calculations over like a 100 times - but yup sure enough 7 years)

today is a BIG day for myself - i am meeting up with a new oncologist - i'm of course sh*t scared - but i am refusing to stop seeing every doctor i can see - i want EVERY opinion out there, i want all the facts, and well i need to find THE doctor i want to be with for the rest of my life - only good thing about all of this, is that i totally changed the way i lived life - i now truly LIVE for just each moment i have and i don't look too far ahead, i literally cherish seconds instead of days - b/c i know 1 day i'm going to get the worst news ever - but i am refusing to let this consume me, but it's been challenging, if i can be perfectly honest, and i haven't mastered it yet ...

HAVE a great Monday Butterflies!

  4. I think taking advantage of every day is a good policy for everyone, regardless of health status. :) I've been thinking about that a lot this summer, and I've really been enjoying myself... it's amazing the things we discover and do if we stop making excuses! Hope you find a doctor you love, and happy anniversary! :D
