    Okay, my best girlfriend is almost 17 years younger than me, and today while stopping over commented on various things. One, my home office. She couldn't believe the mess, but, like I told her, I knew where everything is at, was at, should be at, including the popcorn on the floor. She was amazed the paper trail led into the huge livingroom, and took over the big square coffee table. Like I told her, Chris, :) that, from all that paperwork you would think, I knew what I was doing right? Well, I DON'T, lol. Okay, okay, so, maybe sometimes, I do. Enough to earn some money. Now, after rummaging her way through the mounds of paperwork, the notebooks, the books, she found the laptop, which isn't even mine, it is a loaner. She was sitting there staring at me, and then, said, " you know, R, ( that is my nickname) you are old enough to be my mother." Like I told her, " if I gave birth when I was a mare 17!, or 16" Then, came out, well, I don't get it, why is it we are peers? Why is it, you don't look older than me, you don't act older than me, I don't get it..." she wanted to know my beauty secrets. LOL

    I told her.

    CHEMO. :) LOTS OF LOTS OF CHEMO! :) and, don't underestimate insanity, IT WORKS :)

    Okay, I will be serious. ( got a couple emails from girlfriends requesting this)... 1. Icecream. Eat lots of icecream. ( Now did u really think, I was going to be serious?) 2. Don't be serious. Laugh at least once an hour at something. Even if you have to laugh at yourself. Laughter feels good. 3. Feel good. Feel good about something at least 3 to 5 times a day. It can be from anything, I like to look out a telescope or read a good book. 4. Dive into an interest! Mine is home inspecting. I LOVE it. 5. NEVER quit learning! Learn something new at least once a day. Read the Yahoo comments :)

    Now, oh girlfriends of mine, get to work!

    I will accept 6, 7, and 8... from other readers. Even maybe, a 9 and a 10.


    I know you are showing this to my littlest of buddies on the pediatric floor, so, a BIG HEY! TO my best little buddies! I love you guys... ( and gals)... :) Cookie like the Cookie Monster

    What is Thomas doing? Oh, my... what "isn't" Thomas doing! Donny, he is zipping Bob around like he is on a racetrack. 500 mph at top speed! Poor Bob. And, Thomas loves it. This morning, Thomas wanted to play tag. He came up and jumped up, and "tagged" me. So, I tagged him right back, and then, he tagged me again, and I tagged him again. This went on and on and on until, he finally said, " okay, something new now please..." Thomas is a fast runner, a high jumper, he smells good, looks good, and is very snuggly. Donny, I will bring Thomas in when Dr. Bb, says, it is okay for your guys! We'll see, okay? Until, then, you can chase Jason around there. :)

    Now, you draw me something really nice to hang on my wall here okay? And, yes, tell, the others, I really do have popcorn on the floor, lol. I am waiting on Thomas to eat it, :) Don't tell, Dr. Bb. it is our secret. Now, Cookie has some work to do here, I miss you guys. See you tomorrow. My love. xoxoxo

    ha ha ha ha ha, no, lol. How can I explain this so it makes sense? hmm. I have only volunteered my time, to a hospital, well, for some years now. And... on the other end of this is the hospital where the kids are like me, battling the Big C. They have through the years, not always the same kids, for some goes home, like my little buddy Jason just did this morning, but, they text me, or call me. I get to know them, and obviously, adore and love them. Well, Dr. Bb, the man who asked for my hand, knows, I write on this site, he is reading it. And, word got around, lol. So, now, for quite some time, they have been 'beggin" me to say hello, the, ( my kiddies in the hospital) LOVE to see their name on this thing. They are not allowed to submit back, for they are kids, and, that is okay, I don't care if I look like I am talking to myself, lol. Heck, stranger things in my life than that! So, I caved and just started saying, "hey" to them, they are LOVING every minute of it. Can you understand? I usually, just text back & forth, but, they asked me, if I would here. They are having fun, and so am I. I don't know how to explain it, but, on the other end of reading this thread, and some others, are one doctor, ( lol.) who already knows, I am nuts, lol, and, still loves me, and, about a half dozen of great nurses, and, LOADS of kids... One got from make a wish, a laptop, and hence, the story begins...

    So, I hope no one gets upset or mad and, hoping Terry doesn't, but, the kids are having fun. Not to mention, ME.


    I love talking to my little buddies and they love reading this stuff. It is good for them. you know? So, I HOPE, you understand and don't think, I am being silly because no one posts back, including some girlfriends of mine, ahem.. lol. but, that is okay, what can I say. Sometimes things, are not what they appear to be in life. This is maybe, one of those moments.

    As always, if anyone objects, I can and will delete this thread, we all will understand. :)

    Hey, I notice that chemo is good for making your hair grow out better when you are done with it. Pretty cool!

    It also got rid of a rash I had on my forehead. So how does that work?

    Yeah, I just tried to add something to a little kid's life, that is all. But, we figured out something else, and it will work, too. I don't think, I can delete threads anymore, so, just incase this one bugs people, maybe you better take it down to save the peace, :)
