It is raining today, but I am happy still. I sit here at working taking a mortgage licensing class, looking out though the cooridor at the US flag that is waving in the wind.
I am happy that I have just over 4 hrs of this class left today and 4 hours tomorrow.

My joy today is knowing I'm getting a tax refund, having a new kitchen window installed (I rent), and, last but not least, I bought a couple of temporary tattoos to put on my implant breast.  I want her to have her own identity and am planning on having a beautiful something or other tattooed on her rather than a nipple.  So I figure temporary tattoos are a good way of experimenting...  I'm really excited about this!

Stay joyous sistahs!  

Hug,
Elaine

Sharon, aren't video chats the best?  My grandson Andreas (5 years old) is constantly IChatting me.... I love it, even though he usually doesn't have much say.  Mostly, he likes to use the special effects to change the image!!  LOL  I can include this is my joy for sure :)

Workmates from the Salk Institute where I worked for 30 years, are coming up to spend the day.  You just know, we're going to eat, drink and be merry!  I've been retired almost four years, but these ladies are friends forever.

Sorry, didn't mean to go on and on....  

Hug,
Elaine

I am filled with joy today because I have only one chemo left; because my post-mastectomy path report was so positive the radiation oncologist said she had never seen one that good after neoadjunctive chemo ("cancer burden: 0"), that I am grateful to God, my family, my friends, and all you Komen sisters that are always there for me.  Bless you all!
