...had more insight than most will ever know. That profound statement gave me great cause to ponder life in the last two months...My life, my family, and LIFE (mortality) in general. I've come to the determination that my life needs "tweaking" -

Tomorrow starts a new semester of school...Yes, school. I'm taking two classes this semester - and planning on two classes for the next 4 semesters. That will give me the hour requirement to sit for the CPA exam. That is my goal. Then, the masters...then who knows. My job is not fulfilling - so I need to do something, right? It makes sense. Just sounds like a lot of work. And it will be. But I need to be challenged; I need to grow. 4.0 is not only a must, its not an option. I have two years to learn (and update my knowledge) to pass the CPA exam. (I do work for a CPA firm; have been here for 4 years) - So its not a "cold" topic.

Tomorrow, we should have some indication of a treatment plan for my mother. I am assuming it was caught very early - possibly no Chemo at all; just radiation. We will take it ONE DAY AT A TIME...after all, Life does not promise us anything, right? No money back for defective parts - No warranty to return anything. It just happens. So deal with it - make the best of it.

Its difficult for me not to be the bouncy, on top of the world individual that most of you know, and have looked up to for years. But I can tell you that even those that appear to have their poop in a group can get broadsided by circumstances.

Oh - and I have to laugh...the comments left on my page....will have me cracking up forever! Creative - funny - and very appreciated!

I'm back.... ;)

PS - My kids went back to school today...DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT HAPPY DANCING?? YeeHaw!!

    me too! me too!!!

    I LOVE the "POOP IN A GROUP"! LOL I will totally use that. My other favorite replacement phrase is "FECAL ROSTER" :-) you know...instead of a certain type of "list" :-)

    Hoping for the best for your mom!

    Wow you are sooo creative with words...and numbers...reaching that 4.0 will not be an impossibility but a certanity! You can do it!
    Glad to hear about your mom--you all have been in my thoughts and prayers! Hang in there and it is A-OK not to always have your "Poop in a Group" (That makes me smile just thinking about that!)
    Glad you're back---Lemon Squeezes to YOU! Carolyn

    I love it...Poop in a group...Never heard that before but will be using it from now on.

    Hope your mother will be fine. I'm assuming she has early stage cancer. If so, and it's not the aggressive kind then she might not even have the chemo and perhaps not even radiation. I had stage 1b lung cancer. Had the lobe removed and no after care except for CT's every three months. Prayers for your family.

    Hope to get to know you better.
