Twenty-two years ago today I married The Rockstar. That's a long time. A very long time. Especially considering that most people didn't think we would last more than 6 months. I don't blame them for thinking that...I only knew him for 3 days when he asked me to marry. And it was only 6 weeks later that we got married.
Don't get me wrong...it has not always been peaches and cream...some times it has been piss and vinegar. Marriage is hard....really hard sometimes. But sometimes it is so easy. So comforting. So loving. And so right.
I am quick to give up when things get hard or uncomfortable. Thank God The Rockstar is not. All the times I wanted to just give and walk away he simply would not have it.
We are empty nesters now and although I miss my kids living here, having so much time alone has made me fall even deeper in love with my Rockstar. Today I feel like such a lucky girl to be so in love with my husband and look forward to the next 22 years with him :)

I know many of you are friends with me on fb and already know this, but for those who don't know...I got a new baby!!!! She is a rescue baby and we named her Mazie.
The lady who had her rescues German Shepherds and had just stumbled upon this baby who had obviously been abused and at the time was malnourished. She got her healthy and then put her up for adoption. Now I am her mama :) She hasn't had a trip to the beauty shop yet, but no worries...she will soon have painted toenails and bow bows in her hair :)
My nuclear scan came back with a very small tumor on one of my parathyroid glands. I told my family the scan was negative. My mother tends to over worry about things and I didn't see the need the worry her. Some people freak out when they hear the word tumor. It is very small and right now it doesn't appear to be doing any damage to my body...my calcium level is normal and my bone density scan was normal. Parathyroid tumors are almost never cancerous. At some point I will probably have to have surgery to have it removed when it starts to do damage, but I just don't want to have surgery right now. They will monitor my bloodwork every 3 months and I will have surgery when it's a "need to" situation...but not now.
We got invited to a cookout last night by a couple who are friends of ours. It turned out to be a surprise wedding! There were probably about 30-40 people there...most of them we didn't know because they were family members and such. I usually don't really pay too much attention to what people have on, but I couldn't help staring at one woman's shoes. She had on sandals and was missing a toenail...on one of her big toes. I tried not to keep looking....but I just couldn't help myself. If I were missing a big toenail I would probably either get a fake one (they can do that just the way the way they do fake nails...my sister lost a toenail and has it done every time she gets a pedi) at at the very least I would paint the toe just like I paint the other nails. She had red toenails, so it was pretty obvious....
Work is going along just peachy. I still hate getting up early. I eat much less when I can sleep as late as I want. When I have to get up early I feel like I get hungry earlier, and once I eat then I feel like I am hungry more often through the day. In the summer I didn't wake up until 10:00 and I wouldn't really start getting hungry until about 2:00. Now I get up at 5:30 and by 8:00. Then of course I feel like I have to eat something during lunch time (11:30) and then I am hungry again when I get home from work (3:30), but it's not quite time for dinner...then I eat again at dinner. I haven't gained any weight since school started back, but I sure do feel like I am eating more.
Today is just a lazy day...that's how we roll on Sundays. I have the tv on Lifetime, which means I will get sucked in to every movie and probably not move from the couch much today other than to check on dinner. The Rockstar calls this the nap channel, so I look for him to be napping probably within the next few minutes. Sundays are my favorite day :)
Have a good week peeps!
