As I type this I am on business day 4 of the 3-5 business days wait for my biopsy results. In other words, no word (yet). It would have been awesome to open this post with good news.
In fact, I wanted to be more positive this week. But, shall we look at my past week-ish?
Tuesday (1/16) – My school district went to state minimum bussing and I became my kids’ bus. Husky bled from her mouth and trip to vet got us “It’s cancer!”
Wednesday (1/17) – Biopsy Day (it was emotionally and mentally worse than physically so) My mom sent me a present, which was nice.
Thursday (1/18) – BEST DAY I HAD IN A WHILE!!!! And that was even taking into account my neck was aching from the biopsy. I was hoping it was the start of awesome.
Friday (1/19) – Neck hurt way less. Mid-morning I got news that Thursday night my great aunt (my grandma’s sister who has been like a second grandma to me) passed away. Scheduled my husky’s surgery for Thursday.
Saturday (1/20) – I spent most the day dealing with my feelings (also known as crying a lot). I gathered myself enough to remember it was my brother’s birthday and sent him a text.
Sunday (1/23) – I was busy. Not necessarily a good day, because I was still emotional, but a passable day.
Monday (1/22) – My yoga instructor informed us our class was going on indefinite hiatus come the end of the month. I need yoga. I’m working on a backup plan, but I’m so emotionally spent I can’t right now.
Tuesday (1/23) – Parenting is hard. Today was harder.
Now, that we have that covered… Let’s talk about my goals.
1) Finish Reading PET for Edits – See that awesome Thursday? It was very awesome and I had extra time to write so I got *ahead* on my editing.
2) Send 5 things out into slush – On hold until PET is done.
1) Read at least 5 Comics a week – 0. Wednesdays are my comic day and since I was obviously busy. And I was so worn out the rest of the time I couldn’t even muster the energy to read. I am hoping to get back on track tomorrow.
1) Blog on Tuesdays – It’s Tuesday and this is a blog post.
I am too scared to say “this week will be better!” or “I’ll have 2 great days!” That feels like I am tempting fate. With Juliet’s surgery/biopsy Thursday and my results still pending… Don’t want to tempt fate. I do want to have as normal a week as possible and I want to have a lot of fun this Saturday… That’s my birthday. I’m hoping that’s not too much to ask.
Have any suggestions for how to pass time while waiting for news?
Tell me good things, please? Your wins of the week?
