Breathe in, breathe out, repeat.

Yes. I'm still posting here beyond questions, polls and humor.

I had to take a step back until life has paused enough for me to type without cursing the chaos in my world.

TheChild is still here with the Grands. It'll be months or years until she's on her feet enough to leave. That will be the subject of many rants, tears, arguments and general stress in my life.

Doesn't matter today because of something only a select few of you have known about.

===
In ye olde nutshell:

A few weeks ago, my wife L found a lump in her breast. Mammogram & ultrasound followed. A comparison on her last checkup showed that the mass had grown a wee bit. So off to the surgeon last week to get it checked out. Lots of worry and fear has made sleeping, coping and life in general very interesting.

L just got the call. All clear.

So complaints about politics, family, the weather, Fox News, unemployment - whatever.

My baby is OK - all I'm seeing is sunshine and rainbows today.

Too much stuff going on...brain is full. Gonna grab L and get away for my birthday and to think.

Be back mid-week. All normal Emergency protocols apply.

Be Excellent to Each Other.

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary with Lennetta.

I look at that number and shake my head -- I am coming ever closer to being married more of my life than not married. It is a fact that I have known L since before many of you were aware of life (hint: it was before MTV). I think that means I am old, but I'll ignore that thought. :)

I suppose I could wax poetic about romance, stubborness and trickery. I could talk about the ups, downs, peaks, valleys. I could write about the laughs, tears, fights and reconciliations.

But I won't because many of us have those stories and scars.

I will simply say this: I could not be the man I grew up to be without her. Period. End of story.

I swear yesterday was Life in a Nutshell.

Morning sucked. Stress and Worry ran rapid, beaten back for a little bit by a Good Thing (getting my glasses back) and a Kind Word (unexpected compliment from an unexpected person at work). Received News from friends and family that helped give Perspective.

Good Food and Support from [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty - then a Household Meeting/Reality Check of Our Financial Future (which was not pleasant but had to be done in these crazy times).

Then Conversations with Good Friends made the night better before Restful Sleep.

And we're doing it all over again Today - because I'm Stubborn Like That.

Tell me of Your World...

...hey, I can dream, can't I?

==========

An update on my grandmother...she was moved to a care center/nursing home near my parents. She's more aware (and annoyed at people *smile*) but she has lost the use of her left arm and is unable to care for herself...and is too much for my parents to handle.

==========

I've been getting over my annual December crud - coughing up interesting biology experiments, but doing better.

==========

Been working on being patient with things and people in my life - not one of my best attributes. Trying to limit the Veruca Salt moments...

==========

[livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty leaves for Vegas to see TheChild, soninlaw and Trey on Saturday. Christmas will probably be low key for me, the first with out L in decades - I'm gonna try not be all gloomy about it and fill my time with stuff and people. If I feel like I'm losing it, expect a call/visit. :)

==========

About 30% of my (meager) online shopping orders have been delayed/canceled due to product shortages or delays. Anybody else seeing this pattern?

==========

Did some cards...if you didn't get one, doesn't mean I don't care. I just ran out of cards/energy/ink/stamps. :)

==========

What do you want Santa to give you for Christmas?

It's only in my world (actually in [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty's world) where a conversation starts off talking about taking out the trash and ends with her telling me how much fun she had last night at the after hours club in Atlanta & how fun Slash is in person...

If you need me, text me.

I cannot believe I have never told this story on LJ before…so for posterity, sharing and embarrassment I post it tonight in honor of one who is going down this road in the morning. I know that some have heard the story of my experience in my youth when it was decided (with no small prodding from [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty) that my fertile days were over. So with….hat in hand, I went to a specialist to get things….um…taken care of.

What followed had to be the most surreal and (in hindsight) funniest doctor visits of my life - adult language )

And if you’re brave, you can say “I did it for you….” ;)

*insert declaration of love and devotion here*

:)

Seriously, [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty - as crazy as you make me, my world would be nothing without you. Love you more than can be said.

Happy Anniversary.

L is doing much better - even went back to work today.
(She has the arduous commute from the bedroom to her office with cat by her side to protect her...)

I'm appreciative of all your thoughts and well wishes - plus I got to put away my Nurse outfit.

PS> Ask [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty about her dreams. :D

PS> I forgot that I make a good nurse. :)

...which is what [livejournal.com profile] felishathekitty and I did this weekend.

Jumped in the car and headed here. Had a great time - the renovations have made this a much nicer place than most we have stayed (even better than some in Vegas).

It was nice to hang out with each other...just what we needed.

How was your weekend?
