Rebel Without a Clue

Today I did a whole lot of stuff that I'm quite sure I'm not supposed to do. Afterall, I have spent the past bzillion days (in cancer time) being a very good girl, doing everything right, and feeling wretched I figured that it was due time to balance the cosmic scales and well....just be an idiot. )(hey...they left me unsupervised....what can I say?)

So I got up and spent six hours working in the yard at our rental. Hard yard work labor. That's right, without breakfast or a break of any real kind. I even touched dirt with my own hands. Then I promised our vacant apt. to two different people. (someone will have to hate my guts later). Then when I came home I ate the peppermint taffy off of Kate's dresser without her permission and left the wrappers on Phoebe's night stand, presumably without her permission as well.

Now, I can't hold the phone or glass of water without shaking. This may make my impending shower a little interesting. And I can only hope after a really good long nap, I'll have recovered enough to go out with Mark tonight. I would have hated to ruin that. But maybe Disney's "UP" will transcend the effects of modern day painkillers and be just as delightful and moving as I've heard it is.

I may have to pay a price for breaking the rules today...I know that. But oh my gladiolas! Did I ever need to be useful and sweaty and totally unaware of cancer.....just for today!

Tomorrow I have to go to an opthamologist.....EYE GUY....about my constant tearing. Something about my tear ducts scarring up and inserting rods or tubes in my eyes.....WHAT?! Are you kidding me? Will they make me run with scizzors and through rocks too? We don't insert things into our eyes, do we? No. No we don't.

I guess that's where I, the rebel girl without a clue, draw the line., we do not put things into our eyes. Help. Anyone?


  1. Dearest Rose, I am so happy that you were able to have a 'non-cancer' day! I hope that you love "Up" as much as we did. We saw it last weekend at the drive in. I thought it was just so great. Left me feeling 'up' myself! ;) Also, about the ophthalmologist...don't be afraid, you aren't supposed to look at bright lights for minutes at a time either! Crazy what doctors to their patients that they advise to never do yourself....afterall, they are 'professionals.' Love you!

  2. I think you will find tiny tubes in your tear ducts very miniscule compared to the chemo you are undergoing - you'll be fine :)

  3. I hope you have a fantastic HOT date! Your boyfriend is super cute. Good luck with the eyes yours are beautiful sooooo don't run with sharp objects no matter what the advice...

  4. you deserved to take a day. hope that you were still able to have an incredible time with your husband. you deserve more than just one day.

    good luck with the EYE GUY! hope to see you soon.
