Christmas card update...and it continues to rain, not snow

We were all disappointed to see no snow when we woke up this morning. It's not cold enough. However, it continues to rain, and I was inspired by The Soup's Rubber Boots post to get out my own wonderful pink rain boots (See photo. Thanks photographer Morgan!). Now I will hardly take them comfortable and keeping my feet dry!

Anyway, I had to also mention in follow up to yesterday's post that did receive two more Christmas cards in the mail yesterday bringing the grand total to three! Speaking of Christmas cards, gotta get ours out the door...yet another "to do" for the weekend.

Appointment with "doctor that I don't like" is today. Getting the usual blood draw and also an order for the ultrasound. Neck still hurts this morning, for two weeks now.

Isn't it amazing as cancer patients we get so used to being poked and prodded? It all started with a needle straight to the thyroid with no anesthesia (fine needle aspiration or FNA to be official) back in July to do the biopsy. Since then, I have been poked at every six weeks for IVs, blood work, etc. I used to hate it. Now, it's just part of the deal, what I need to do to stay on top of this cancer business.


  1. Hey, thanks for the link love! Those boots are jammin'.

    Still no Christmas cards chez Soup yet. What gives?

  2. My goodness those boots are super cute! I can't quite tell but it looks like there is a thick layer of dust on them as if they've been sitting in a closet for over a year just waiting to be worn for the first time ;-)
