cancer smelling dogs

So a woman calls last week and says, "I know this sounds wierd but I need a mammogram. I've heard dogs can smell cancer and my dogs have been smelling my breasts so I really need to get one."

But then told me she was going to be out of town for the month and would have to wait until she got back to schedule it. (She was really wanting one that day. Too bad I don't work at the medical drive-through ordering service.)

Still waiting to get the results back on that one. I couldn't make this stuff up.

mother's day

So I'm really not looking forward to tomorrow. Actually, I've tried NOT to think about it. But then I was driving home last night from work and passed the TWIN PEAKS billboard and started to laugh. Mom and I were driving on 169 before she got sick and she saw the billboard and said, "Hey, that looks like a great place to eat. We should try it." I looked at her and said, "Um, do you NOT get the twin peaks analogy? It's boobs mom--it's like Hooters. Do you still want to go there? The girls will have on tight shirts and their business hanging out." She decided we shouldn't go there.

There are so many things I miss about my mom. And I'm sure tomorrow will be hard. But then I remember something funny she said and it's ok.

But I'm going to try to focus on the good things. Like my friends Liz & Kylie and celebrate Mother's Day with them. And their great kids.

And my friend Mandee from work. Who's a single mom of the cutest 5 year old, Toby. She works with us and is going back to school. (I actually tried to help her on a lab report for Biology and I got her a 'D'. She didn't ask for much help after that.) I'm so proud of her. And the other Moms I work with: Omega, Heather, Cindy, Dee & Felicia.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

goodbye bixby, hello owasso


Well, what can I say? Ed leaves for Cuba and my house sells and I buy another one. Laura says we should send Ed away more frequently? Me, I say we need to get those Cubans praying for us more often!!
I am losing money, but am getting a really good deal on a new home in Owasso. And a great interest rate. Can't wait to have a 10min commute. And the extra money I used to spend on gas.
I'm closing on the Bixby house on May 24th. My new house (should) be ready on June 21st. I know, two moves isn't ideal. But Ed's letting me move in with him, so I'll be able to save some money.
I'll post more pictures of it when they get a little more finished. Because it's still in drywall state, I got to choose finishes. And I pretty much chose the exact same stuff I have now. I'm so predictable. But I had to look at everything first. At lease I know what I like!!

God is good, all the time!
