Seriously, enough already!

When it rains, it pours, doesn't it?

So something is wrong with the online system and classes didn't open at 2 pm today like they were supposed to. Of course, I don't much care, but I am sure my students will be put out that they have a few fewer hours before their first assignment is due which will inevitably lead to a barrage of emails about how I need to adjust the whole calendar. And just b/c I don't plan to do that doesn't mean they will stop complaining...sigh.

A nice trip to the pool today turned into a less than pleasant experience due to a bad "break up' with a former friend whose sister is in town and decided she needed to make some comments. It's a long story, but the gist of it is that sometimes it is just better for people to go their separate ways when they don't bring out the best in each other. And even when you think it all over, sometimes the can of worms just gets opened whether you open it yourself or not.

Additionally, I got a call from my OB/GYN's office and my Pap smear came back abnormal for the second year in a row, so they now want to do some additional tests and a biopsy. I guess I'll just assume everything will be fine until I hear otherwise. I am likely to go a little crazy if I start thinking about the worst case scenario.

On the bright side, Bryn is having a preschool friend spend the night and they are happily entertaining each other as I write. We have a big night planned - nail painting, ice cream eating, movie watching. Who could ask for more?

Awww, I know how ya feel. I've had *girl* issues for a few years now. My paps have been coming back as *high grade cells*. I've had 5 Colposcopies (4 since November) and a few biopsies of my cervix. The cells are graded up until cacer level, the way my doc explained it. Once it hits a 4 on his scale, that's cancer. As of last month, I'm at 3.5 high grade. So, 6 weeks after the baby is born, I have to go in and have loop surgery on my cervix to cut all the *bad* cells out before they turn cancerous and to make sure there aren't anymore hiding. *Sigh*. The things us women have to go through! You hang in there and try not to worry. If it is something, it's best that they catch it early and can get it outta there! Keep us posted!!

Debi said... is time you caught a break! I'm serious! If I was you, I'd swear I'd have blown a gasket by now! Don't ever forget to call if you ever just need to vent. And please, please, please, let me know how it goes Wednesday.

As for this pool incident...I sure wish you'd spill the details! LOL

Hope you all had fun with Bryn's sleep-over! And took lots of pics to scrapbook.

And Carrie was right. It's actually pretty easy to load photos. Heaven knows if I can do, anyone can. And I found once I switched browsers, it was even easier. So it can be slightly different depending on your browser. But just click on the little "picture" symbol on the tool bar, and I think it's pretty self-explanatory from there. Just ask if you have any questions, o.k.?

Take care of yourself, sweetie!

I so dislike confrontations, so I would have not wanted to be at the pool with you. Hope it all went well and everyone is still standing (*grin*).

Sorry that your Pap came back questionable, and hope everything is ok. I know you'll be glad to have it tested and put all of that behind you. Keep us updated and let us know how it's going.

Take care and have a wonderful week!

You are in my thoughts and prayers and praying that everything will be a-ok with you. Meanwhile, trynot to worry too much!
