In the Loop

Ever feel like you have nothing to post about?
Yeah, me too.

I usually chalk that up to an alarming lack of imagination on my part,
because, my goodness!!!
There is SO much going on in my world,
in the world at large, and inspiration simply abounds out there in blogland.

I suppose I've fallen victim to the notion that every post
must fit a certain theme or herald some new project.

When in actuality?
The posts that I most like to read are the conversational,
day-to-day type posts that give me a peek
into your  respective worlds.

So...what's new in mine?

Oh yeah...remember that public service announcement
I got all pushy about last month?

Well, I sucked it up when it came to the fear,
kept the appointment, had the test done,
and was given good news...
no more 6 month follow-up's, I get to come back in a year!

So for all of you scaredy cat, fence straddlers,
I'm here to be all obnoxious and in your face again...
make the phone call.
stop avoiding the doctor, the tests, the pesky "what-if''s".

Trust me, not knowing and worrying is the worst part.
Just do it.

/ rant

What else?

Lots of potential photo shoots on the horizon,
just no time to actually get them done.
Not yet, anyway.
I had to pass up a GREAT opportunity just this week,
but I passed it along to a wonderful photog buddy, so it's all good.

Thinking about starting a diet.
My skinny arms in that wedding pic on my sidebar?
Yeah...they ain't that skinny anymore.
I'm tall, so everyone always says incredulously,
"you don't need to lose weight".
Those folks walk away $10 richer.

Weekend plans?
Off to San Antonio for my nieces first communion.
Visit with my sweet mother-in-law from Portland.
Back home to have a girl's day out with my own mom for
Mother's Day.

Haven't turned the page on next week yet, but I'm pretty sure
it'll involve some quality time spent with
Steven Tyler on AI and Maks on DWTS.  ;-)

And you?
What's new in your world?

Anne, I'm so glad the results came back fine!!!! You are right about the waiting being the worst part. It's best to just get it done and have it behind you, than to regret it later.

Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Anne!

First of all, thank you dearly for the sweet words you left me about my article. You are sweet! I know what you mean about post topics.. sometimes I just enjoy hearing the idle talk. :)

Sounds like you have a full weekend! Let's see.. I just got a haircut (chin length & layered), have been working planting in the garden & having disagreements about it with the husband (we have compromised now).. I like order to the garden with plans, etc & he likes to make a huge mess (grrr)... but then he sheepishly admitted that he is jealous of my gardening skills! I have a final to take tomarrow which I am fearing, I ordered my first Dreamy Whites order (woo hoo!), I ordered stuff for my foyer, I am going out for diiner with the extended family Sunday, & we are finally going to have 70 degree weather here next week.. it is about time! :) Oh boy this is probably going to look so long! I hope you have a great weekend & glad you got some rain.. your rainbow pics were awesome!
Big Hugs,

Lara said...

And I am happy you are healthy!!! :)

Pam Kessler said...

I'll fight you for Steven Tyler. Did you see him in the Matt Lauer interview? Two totally different types of guys, but I'll take either one. Or both! Glad your test came back good. Enjoy your weekend!

Between Me and You said...

That`s two good bits of `healthy` news today! The other one was my daughter-in-law`s MRI scan showed up nothing untoward. What a worrying time we`ve all had - we tend to take our good health for granted, don`t we? Steven Tyler sure looks healthy to me though! I love it that he`s such an old hippy! and I LOVE American Idol!Have a great weekend, Lovely Girl. x

Michelle Hughes said...

Oh I am so glad you got back good results! After I read your last post about it, I called to get a checkup... nothing wrong, but I tend to put those things off for more fun things!

Have a wonderful weekend! I love First Communions :)

Joanna said...

So pleased about your health news!

Enjoy your lovely family weekend. I'm going to a Kitsch and Stitch Makers and Vintage Fair tomorrow in a village in Kent, UK. Looks good!


Mona @ la la by mona said...

So glad it was good news. Face those fears head on so that you can continue to take good care of yourself!

Samantha said...

Wonderful about your good news! Nothing is more terrifying to me than waiting for test results, but the relief of knowing- no matter what the news- is better than the unknown.

It's so nice to hear what you have been up to! My posts are filled with a lot of idle chatter, so don't feel bad if you can't come up with a topic...just type away!

Have a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day with your special lady!

trash talk said...

I also gave my doctor his yearly thrill this past week. Still waiting for results...other than the smile on his face when I left.
May is always a busy, busy month here at the Casita de Trash, beginning with the oldest melonhead's b'day and ending with Memorial Day.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Sherry Hicks said...

So Happy your test results turned out fine! Thanks for being an advocate for us to make the call. I too am starting a diet and trying to kickstart myself back into doing my ballet barre workouts and pilates, my favorite exercises and treadmill........ we will see....well I have not posted pictures of me for a while as I have not been comfortable in my own skin......Have a wonderful time visiting family and have a blast with your momma on Girls day! Hug her tight!
Hugs Sherry

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Thanks for sharing such good news!

I love how you are thinking about starting a diet..hee hee!

The sun is shining and I am feeling great today which means the possibilities of today are endless!

Brooke ~ The Eclectic Cottage said...

Anne, I too feel like I have nothing to post about at times and also chalk it up to lack of imagination (I thought I was the only one)! Thank you for making me feel better about that and for inspiring a few blog post ideas. I'll be joining you next week with DWTS and AI, I miss Casey! Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your time with your Mom! ~Brooke

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Ohhhh Anne ~
I have so been feeling that way lately ~ I am constantly amazed at how much some people accomplish pretty much on a daily basis ~
I have been in a "blog blank" lately ~
You know what though I do love just reading about people's days and thoughts and stuff ~
Thank you for posting this great post! You have inspired me!


Martha at Authentica said...

Hi Anne!
First off! Congratulations on making it to the appointment! I am so relieved to hear your news was good! Now you can concentrate all your efforts on your new home! LOL! ....and the other thousand things going on in your life! BTW...I live on a perpetual diet! But at 50 I have found it comes on a lot easier than it leaves! LOL! Have joyful, happy Mother's Day weekend!
Blessings to you~!

Beverly said...
