Every little thing gonna be alright...

If you were to ask Little Bit what my favorite song is, she would triumphantly shout "Three Little Birds!" It's not. But hey I'll go with it. Everyone can use a little Bob Marley in their lives (in more ways than one, HA!). I do love that song and we jam to it quite frequently. Especially strolling through the Walmarts because that place sucks the life out of you.
So anyway, that Rastafarian got it right. Every little thing IS gonna be alright. I FINALLY got a call from my plastic surgeon, actually he had to leave me a message. And in not so many words he said "this my message to you-ou-ou." (wow, i'm totally on a roll!) No really he said that the lymph nodes that the general surgeon removed and the margins that he removed were cancer FREE! I've actually listened to that message like 10 times now. He's a strange dude. One of those people who leaves awkward pauses in the middle of a conversation so you aren't quite sure if he's finished talking, just thinking, or pausing for dramatic effect. But despite the oddness he's an excellent doctor and my face is pretty much going to be scarless. He also fixed up Jackie the Ripper, I mean my general surgeon's scar on my neck because it bothered him. If I had a lot of money I'd go to him in a heart beat and say, "work your magic!"

So things are on the up and up. In the middle of all the madness, Steven got a new job. He'll be starting as an in house tax guy for a large corporation right after tax season. Maybe it's now starting to rain good things. He hadn't been looking for a new job, this one just kind of found him.

Thursday marks the great cast removal! My girl has been such a trooper with that cast. Once aunt Laura fixed her up with some tape few weeks ago she hasn't complained one single time. So hopefully this Spring we'll be back to our regularly scheduled program of normal craziness.

Through all of this unpleasantness though I was reminded time and time again how lucky I am to have such an amazing husband, little girl, mom, friends, family, cyber friends, neighbors, co-workers, you name it. I have NEVER been one to keep how I feel or my drama bottled in. I share it all with my small world. I figure why suffer alone and on the other hand why just share your joys? To everyone I am grateful. I'm grateful for all of the thoughts, prayers, well wishes, food (my friends seriously know the way to my heart, HA!) flowers, cards, my uncle for offering to shave his head if things didn't turn out the way I had hoped, and just listening.

Love Me.

So now I'm off to party Bob Marley style! Kidding mother.
