A Happy Girls Journey with Cancer

The Day of Should Have’s

on February 15, 2013

Today was the day I should have boarded a plane headed for Cuba, but I had to cancel the trip because cancer reared it’s ugly head in my body. Today should have been the day of my surgery, but it got pushed out until the 20th. Today should have been a big day wether on a plane headed for warm sunny weather and glasses of daiquiri’s or laying on a table in a cold operating room…I kind of feel let down.

However it is Friday, I’m allowed to drink alcohol until Sunday, I have a vitamix and rum, all I need is banana’s and then I can celebrate my life with Owen and that will make this weekend pretty perfect. This is also the last weekend that I will be feeling good for a while, so Owen and I are going to spend it together. We don’t have much for plans except going to the movies…maybe even going twice, which is kind of lame, but we want to see two different movies and chances are I won’t feel like going to see a movie anytime soon.

I will blog next week, but my posts will probably be short and to the point…as it will be a busy week. Monday I will be getting ready to go to the hospital, and will be taking Georgia to Owen’s parents. I hate leaving her behind, she gets so sad when we drop her off, but she does love spending time with her Grammy Beth. Tuesday we will head to Halifax and probably do a little shopping at Dartmouth Crossing, hopefully it will keep my mind off things. Wednesday will be a long day, right now my surgery is planned for 1:30, but it won’t be confirmed until the day before. After that, my posts may be funny with my drug filled brain running the show!

The song below is called Toes by the Zac Brown Band, I listened to it a lot when I booked our trip to Cuba…I will listen to it today and dream about having my toes in the water and ass in the sand! Have a good weekend!!

    Have a great weekend and keep that rum a-flowin’! I think you guys should just do what ever your hearts desire! Who ocares if that means two movies in one weekend!

    • If I keep the rum flowing I will be too hung over for two movies! Ha. That’s what happens when Owen suggests going to see Die Hard, if I have to sit through that he can sit through a chick flick! Have a good weekend KW!

    Renee and Owen, enjoy your movies. I wonder what you are going to see? I hope that they are both great! We watched the Dark Crystal this evening. Do you remember that one? It was weirder than I remembered.
