I am super scared and crying a lot. I should have insisted on an appointment today, but have to wait till Monday. Rob will go with me.
I don't know what else to say. Everything except my family and God seems so unimportant.
Say a prayer!

UPDATE to THIS POST
5 days after posting this I had a mamo and ultra sound my 1st ever- to find out I had 2 tumors in my right breast. I think all along I knew there was something up with my breasts, but honestly didn't know what. I would never have thought I would get breast cancer being my family isn't one for a history of breast cancer. Well myself and my cousin both were diagnosed at 40. Our fathers were brothers.
Please if you wonder about your breast go to your doctor and get checked. This post was a nice tribute to my life with my breasts. I now will carry on without one- it saddens me that I didn't act sooner- the night I mentioned to my husband that something seemed wrong I should have called my doctor......that day at work when I had a huge pain in my breast I should have called my doctor.
I am free of cancer now- in remission but I'm high risk for breast cancer.
God Bless and GET YOUR MAMOS AT 40 AND SOONER IF YOU HAVE A FAMILY HISTORY.
AND IF YOU EVER NEED ANYTHING FROM ME PLEASE CONTACT ME.

OK it's not a flower - it's garlic!
Garlic is so good for you and I LOVE roasted garlic
2. Cut the top part of your garlic so the top of each clove can be seen and covered with olive oil and S&P.
3. Put the garlic in the muffin pan
4. Drizzle Garlic with Olive Oil and then season with salt and pepper (make sure you rub olive oil over each clove)
5. Cover each Garlic bulb with foil
What you are doing is cooking the garlic until the cloves in side are so soft you can spread them like a jam on bread!
I have also used roasted garlic in pasta dishes. One simple pasta is easily done with roasted garlic, fresh garlic, fresh basil and shredded parm cheese.

Lucas told me he is unsure what he wants to go to college for
Lucas loves athletes and would love to be a star athlete
Lucas thinks he is going to enjoy Science this year
So I came up with - There is not enough coverage of good people in the news.
Example: NORMAN BORLAUG died this past Saturday
This man was 95 and is responsible for saving a billion people in his life!
This from a boy from a farm in Iowa!
Is this an inspiration? Should Lucas look up to this person- YES! Does he know a thing about him- No.
This is from an article written in 2007 when he received the Congressional Gold Medal:
Has there been anyone else in history credited with saving a billion people? Yesterday Norman Borlaug received the Congressional Gold Medal, America’s highest civilian award. This humble and unpretentious microbiologist and plant breeder is credited with saving over a billion lives through the “Green Revolution.” Dr. Borlaug has spent his professional life introducing crop breeding methods to developing countries that dramatically increased crop yields and saved over a billion people from starvation. And he is still going strong at 93 years of age.
Read the rest HERE
I am but one member of a vast team made up of many organizations, officials, thousands of scientists, and millions of farmers - mostly small and humble - who for many years have been fighting a quiet, oftentimes losing war on the food production front. Norman Borlaug
Lucas should know about this good man.
I'm gearing up for my fast next week and it's going to take a ton of preparation! I'm super nervous that I won't be able to do it:
I need to have a lot of will power
I need to make a week of meals in 1 day
I need to grocery shop for my family and my fast
I need to have everything in order at my house
I need to have something to do with my extra time I won't be spending on food.
I'm still finishing up CLEAN and I skimmed over some of the global warming stuff- I'm not into that at this point. It was also hard to read about all the chemicals in plastic wrapped food as well as the chemicals on our clothes- I was getting a little overwhelmed.
I had an AHHH moment when reading about thinking about food! Food started being bad for us when we started thinking about food! You know what I mean (well if you like food or are addicted to things like sweets, diet drinks, carbs). WE THINK ABOUT FOOD- LIKE A HIGHSCHOOL CRUSH.
That's where humans took a turn........animals don't think about food. Animals eat only because they have to eat to live and they eat when food is available. THAT'S when I thought of LUCAS and other children! Lucas when asked what do you want to eat says "I don't know yet?" Lucas only eats when he's hungry. I eat when bored, when happy, when sad, whenever.
Another thing that really gets me- MILK. In the book DrJ talks about how we are the only mammals that drink milk after breastfeeding is finished. Then we actually take the milk of other mammals for our own. No other animal drinks milk once they have breast fed and gained enough weight. Weird.
I will doing the juice fast to start and see how that goes and move on to a raw diet.
Fasting will mean TAKING IT EASY! I feel real guilty asking the BOYS for help at such a busy time.
If I had my way I would go away- like to my old house and just be alone in pjs everyday after work.....I feel like I need to go away and find my HEALTY.
Can't do that- next best thing..... I pair of new VS pjs! We'll see
VS has some cute boots:

The next morning:
How cruel to look pregnant at a time I wish I was pregnant. I'm over crying about it I have to do something.
I did get my blood work back (check cholesterol) and my cholesterol is GREAT! GOOD NEWS
I guess I haven't been eating that bad- I'm happy!
I must start cleaning up my eating even more. I will start next week because this weekend (which in the 4th in a row I've backed a suitcase) I'm on the road.
I've been looking into Colon Therapy and Meditation Schools in the Catskill Mountains. The eating part will be fairly easy for me because in the past I have done food combining and detox programs.
I want her to teach me how to be silent
I want him to feed me salad
I want to feel GOOD! Peace out!

It's good to be where we live for INDIAN SUMMER! I once had a friend who's mother always had an Indian Summer Dinner and it was always so nice to sit outside in the sun as the leave were such beautiful colors! We are so lucky to have it and this year I'm going to CELEBRATE IT!
My favorite ROMPER I could never afford!
For fall the 1Shoulder thing is going to be big especially for evening wear!
Guess shoulder and arm exercises will be big as well.
