C-Sections, Lumberjacks, Kenny Chesney and Massages

My husband is a real stand-up comic today! While assessing my tummy for the infamous linea nigra (which is there, but super light, hoping it stays that way, that sucker took months to go away before), Joe asked me "if you have a c-section, can your doctor just cut off a little bit of your extra skin before she sews you back up?" The irony of this question-there is no talk of me needing a c-section nor do I think I would elect to have one unless it was medically necessary. Thanks Joe!

Next up, while on a phone conversation with his mom this morning, I overhear him telling her "she's doing good, not blowing up like she did the first time, her snoring though is keeping me up all night, I keep looking over expecting to see fat guy with a beard and a flannel shirt on next to me in bed, you know like a lumberjack". OMG! Thanks again Joe!

I think prozac is doing wonders for me!

Today while getting ready I heard a song on pandora that I heard a million times but today it brought me back to the reality of my life now.
"Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
The only thing that keeps me sane
is knowing I'll see you again someday"

As I sit here and blog and await my 9:30 massage appointment, that I so desperately need, I can't help but think that I am not even close to where I want to be in life but this is my life and taking it day by day in my survival mode is the only thing that gets me through.


  1. Ugh, don't listen to that song! I lose it every time I hear it, it makes me think of my first cousin who died from breast cancer, 5 years ago at the age of 29.

    Have you read The Shack? If not, look it up. You might really like it and it might help you with your grief and healing.

    My husband made me sleep in a different room than him during the last few months of my 3rd pregnancy because my snoring was so bad!! LOL @ Joe's comments though!

    I hate to sign this "anonymous" but my computer won't let me do it any other way!!

    Enjoy your massage! :)

  2. Katherine,
    Thanks for recommending "The Shack", so crazy, Joe came home with it a few weeks ago and read it in 3 days. I have not read it, not sure if I can. Apparently, according to Joe, it would be hard for me to handle. He's probably right.

  3. That is crazy!! Well, Joe certainly knows best what you can handle but maybe one day you will be able to read it. How did he like it? I read it about a year or so ago.
    I hope that you had a good weekend!
    Katherine :)
