OK, I've got to stop. Stop obsessing how to craft an interesting/witty/thought-provoking, NON-pity-full post ... and just chat.
For those who've wondered, DH is doing great.
Actually, he's feeling great today.
Unfortunately, I'm learning the hard way (that) can all change without warning. Sometimes the endless uncertainty and depression seems more real an enemy than that which lurks inside....
then come days I'm inclined to forget there's anything wrong.
Yes, I should just absorb the good times and be happy in the moment. Instead, I'm usually on edge, waiting for the other shoe to fall.
Yesterday we found out DH's second PET scan has been scheduled for September 16. Crazy, but my legs felt like rubber for a few minutes after the call! At least we'll finally get some answers ... just have to wait for our quarterback (aka, oncologist) to call the next play.
OK, that's it on the health-front. As a GM used to remind us, "It is what it is."
.... while I'd be over in a corner grinding my teeth. Like oil and water, pragmatists and I often butt heads.
I'm making an effort to become more sociable ... and flexible (Gumby-envy). Baby steps, but surprisingly enough we've not been disappointed!
We've broken bread with friends ...
Sherry and I already know and love one another,
but our fellas had never met.
Luckily, they seemed to hit it off immediately!
I so hope we'll have more opportunities to spend together!
Let's see ...we also accompanied our sweet neighbors to their church the other night. I have to admit, when I found out their minister was giving a speech and slide presentation on his mission trip to Africa, I groaned a little inside. Weekdays, I'm up at 4:00 ... most reluctant to do Anything that involves wearing shoes or making polite conversation after 9:00.
You know what? He was so charismatic and the narrative so fascinating, I was startled when it came time to leave.
Anyway, it was delightful to finally meet and visit with our FB pal, Danny -- recently liberated from his 15-year gig at the now-defunct KOY radio. He still hosts a weekly gathering dubbed "Club 55+" with a fun band, "Route 66."
Wow. When Danny sang "I Love You Arizona" I think everyone sat up a little straighter. All the same, I was reduced to giggles watching him queue up the lyrics to "Misty" off his iPhone. Tom had to remind me, "Just because someone plays it all the time on the air, doesn't necessarily mean they know all the words!"
So! Life goes on.
... not the most exciting share, but wanted to let you know we're still here ... perhaps on the sidelines ... but cheering all the same!
Please keep well!
Hugs from Arizona,
