Celebrate the Ironic

Happy July 4th. I slept for 11 hours and got a late start. However the 24 hour surgical bra and I parted company! I'm able to return to normal bra wearing. Happiness fireworks are rocketing! I've been reading different cancer books and my 2 favorites are Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips and Cancer Vixen.  Crazy Sexy Cancer has ideas for staying sane and writing on your bathroom mirror is one of them. Loved it. Will be doing more. Cancer Vixen which arrived yesterday is a graphic novel about a New York cartoonist travails with cancer. It was hilarious. I felt like she was channeling aspects of my life. I haven't laughed so hard in weeks.

Speaking of laughing. I picked up yesterday's mail and opened it this am. I received a letter from @#Care. The group that manages my HMO.  I thought it would be a summary of some of the issues we had been discussing. Instead it was a reminder that I was overdue for a mammography screen as it could be helpful in diagnosing breast cancer and I should call to schedule as soon as I could. Call my sense of humor dark and perverse, but I howled. My friend Gail joined in the laughter when I told her and said it was one of the best examples of irony she had heard in awhile.

Will be spending time with friends later, but coasting as I'm still very tired today.

My gratitude today is to laughter. One of the great healers. Oh and for the fact my State Disability has been approved. I won't have to worry about my finances while I'm off!

Another two fer for the holiday.
