This class is kicking my fanny. Not because it is hard but because it is so time consuming. I have so much reading to keep up with I don't even have time to watch Dancing With the Stars. I sure hope I have a measurable increase in intellect by the time I get finished in December. I'm doing so much writing that I haven't had the inclination to blog. No problem...I don't have that much to say of interest anyway. When I'm not working, going to school or studying I'm just watching my retirement account lose money like everyone else in the country right now. How depressing! Oh well, I figured I'd be working until they find me covered in cobwebs.

Monday, Monday...................

I'm here with bells on my toes. Not really but I'm trying to have a positive attitude. I don't have a lot on my calendar today and I'm leaving at 1:45. I have a mammogram scheduled for this afternoon. After last year's little scare I'm a tad nervous but I want to be smart and keep up with routine exams. You never know when it might just save your life. The only thing I hate about mammograms is well, there isn't just one thing I hate actually. I have a fear of fire drills while I have my @#$% in a ringer. I'm all about being proactive and I sure don't want to die of something I might have caught early enough to survive but I just wish there was a daintier way of doing it. Next year it's colonoscopy time again. Now that's a little charmer. Not painful but certainly a cleansing experience. Ron is due for his this year. The last time he had one we had just started dating and he asked if I could pick him up afterward and give him a ride home. No problem! I drove over to the clinic at the designated time and the nurse directed me to a back room. I walked into a room where several older men were seated in a circle of Lazy boy recliners. This must have been the "toot" room because they were all in a circle passing air. Now, Ron and I were new into our relationship and believe me this was a bit of an awkward pause for me. Of course, it didn't take long before I was completely overcome with the giggles and had to make a quick exit. Poor Ron....he's so straight laced and proper I really did feel sorry for him. I thought he was going to explode in the car on the way to his house. I guess he didn't want to just let er rip so soon in the relationship!

Aint it the truth?

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could dampen her excitement -- not even her parent's nasty divorce Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear and would be the best Dressed mother-of-the-bride ever!
A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's new Young wife had bought the exact same dress! Jennifer asked her to exchange it, but she refused.
'Absolutely not, I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I'm Wearing it,' she replied.
Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, 'Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day.' A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked d her mother, 'Aren't you going to return the Other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it. Her mother just smiled and replied, 'Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding!

I had a four day weekend and did pretty much nothing. We had quite a thunderstorm Saturday night delaying the OU football game by more than an hour. I was so glad I wasn't there. Of course Ron stayed until the end the true blue obsessive fan that he is. He actually called me while taking shelter beneath the stadium to say, "I wish you were here". I replied, "You've got to be kidding". The last game I attended it was 110 in the shade and I practically plowed over our entire section trying to get out at half time. I walked home and haven't been to a game since. That was two years ago and I have no intention of going to another game as long as I live. I have a 42 inch tv and a recliner in an air conditioned house that is sufficient for any sporting event I may want to watch. Do I sound cynical?
