Hat Creek California

My hubby and I traveled to Hat Creek Ca. A tiny little town named by the Creek that runs through it. It's about 60 miles north east of Redding. About 4 hours away from Rocklin. It was quite a drive, but in the end when we arrived we were so excited. We kind of new what we were getting but to see it in person it was breathtaking.
Stephen caught so many beautiful fish, some big and some small. I scrapbooked and watched more movies than I have watched in 3 years. It was a great get away. We didn't leave the property we cooked in and talked listened to music and drank way to much! We started the days with Champagne, the way I like to start my day. I didn't get to many layouts done. I did those pictures that you should scrapbook, but you are really not interested or excited about doing. It was hard. Each afternoon I would sit down with a glass of White Wine a piece of Cambazola cheese and crackers and try to get excited and use my prettest paper and embellishments and NOTHING...It was agonizing. Ah, what I would have given for a trip to GT for some much needed inspiration. I may or may not be showing those layouts. It is such a sad sad thing.
Here are some more pics...I think we will be visiting again next year..maybe for a 7 year anniversary.

Results and Playing the Waiting Gami AGAIN!

Ok, so I have taken a few days....maybe a week off of the blog spectrum, to just well; I guess be lazy. I love being lazy.
So I did receive some results last Friday and some other info: here it goes:
please feel free to leave questions and I will do my best to answer them.
I have Scattered Fibroglandular Densities, with punctate rounded benign appearing microcalcifications. So basically that means that I have calcifications that are benign appearing -- still have to have that darn biopsy on the 20th just to make 100%sure they are benign, then I will be throwing myself a booby party. I do have to go back in 6 months and have more mamos and ultrasounds for follow up.
So, the call I got on Thursday of last week that had me in tears all day, is for my right boob. Apparently it was so jealous it wanted more attention! And boy is it going to get it. I have a summation artifact that needs more lookin at!
So there you have it! Good news and well, just some more waiting. I go in tomorrow morning to get the mammo and US. Wish me luck, I don't think I will need it though. I really appreciate all the love and support ALL of you are the BEST! I love you all.

Breast Cancer Awarness Month

Friends, if you have never done your own self exam; do one TODAY!!!! There is not a better time than right now to get to know your boobies! Can I say that? Well, it is my blog and I am the author of this post so Yes I can say BOOBIES!!!!
So some of you know that last month I went to the Dr. and she found a lump in my Left Boob, I am a little disappointed in that boob, since it is the perkiest and largest of the two I have. No mine are not created equally. He He, that was funny.
Now I have to simply wait for the results to come back and to see the Surgeon on the 20Th of October! What a wait, and yes it is hard to not think of anything else. I have done all sorts of research on lumps, there are a lot!
I do however keep coming back to a conversation I had with my OB/GYN at my 6 wk, post baby appointment 3 years ago, the conversation went like this:

Me: A few of my mom's cousins and aunts have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I am concerned.
Dr.: What about your Mom, Sister, or Grandmother?
Me: No, thankfully
Dr.: Then you have NOTHING to worry about!
Me: OK.
Well if you do a little research you will find out that 70% of those ladies with Breast Cancer Do Not have family history of Breast Cancer!
Be proactive about your own health. Doctors do not know everything, and you know your body better then they do.
Now go say Good Morning to your Boobies!

A Week in the Life of Us

So I decided last Monday that I would take part in Documenting a Week in Our Life. It has been more difficult than I thought it would be, and a little boring. We just don't have that much fun around here.
Unless you think taking your sweet little 3 year old the Emergency Room and her having to get IV fluids, anti throw up meds, and blood work done is fun. She is better now, thank the powers at be. And I did leave the camera at home. I didn't want to seem like a weird mom, who wanted to document this horrible experience, but looking back I wished I did. I want to remember how fragile this little being really is. So next time, when she has a fever of 103.7 and has not kept anything down all day, and I will be more proactive, and not let her get so dehydrated!
Shelby be has a Bladder Infection, a pretty bad one, apparently. Anyone with little girls Just a reminder FRONT TO BACK!!! They are not kidding when they made this rule.
Here are a few pics of our week.

It has been fun doing this; but I forget to take some pictures and I am not really good and righting things down. I figure if this week doesn't turn out so great...there is always next week.
