I just signed a check to enroll Delaney in her first school. She won't start until the fall, and she'll only be attending two days a week, but already my knees are shaking.
I noticed a woman at my gym many months ago who was very large. I still see her there all the time and she's so dedicated. She's lost tons of weight and every time I see her I want to say something to her--something congratulatory, something encouraging. But I'm afraid she'll take it the wrong way or think I'm some kind of weirdo. Still, I'm proud of her. I wish I could do what she's doing.
I didn't wear a black shirt today (gasp). In fact, I wore two shirts and neither was black. One shirt was white (I never wear white shirts) and over it I wore a green, short-sleeved hoodie zipped up halfway. It was quite the soccer mom getup and I loved it.
And speaking of green, leprechauns everywhere are talking about how March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness month. I was diagnosed with this disease when I was 26. Nine years later I'm extremely lucky to be alive and talking about it. Colorectal cancer is preventable and very treatable when caught early. I urge people of all ages to learn the facts about colorectal cancer and I hope everyone encourages their family and friends over 50 to get scoped. I even made my husband do it. He must really love me. This ends my public service announcement.
Don't you wish The Super Colon was coming to a city near you?
