Boobie update: Sonogram negated the need for a mammogram; it's just a cyst. Next time I have to have something scanned or imaged, I am totally asking for that place again. I got to lie on a heated exam table (!) and the lights were dimmed so I didn't go blind staring at the ceiling. It was as nice as could be expected for having my boobs pushed around with an ultrasound wand and a weird pad thing that looked like petri dish medium.

I worked at our neighborhood school's book fair for two hours today. I forgot how much I love the smell of bookbinding glue and helping kids earnestly showing me the three dollars they brought find a sale book (most of the books are sold at cover price, but I'm okay paying that since the profits help the school). The volunteer schedule was a little shorthanded tomorrow, so I'll be there 8 AM - 2 PM. Book straightening and student wish list assistance FTW! Even better? Next week is book fair at Laurel's school.

Also: rain? We have enough. Please go rain somewhere that needs it. Thank you. All this cloudiness makes me want to sleep and carry the cat around in a baby sling.

...

Books purchased today at book fair:
- Clementine, Sara Pennypacker - cute chapter book about a free-spirited third grader, first in a series.
- The Dragon of Lonely Island, Rebecca Rupp - picked it up on sale for $2, if you want me to buy you a copy leave it in the comments.
- Tink, North of Never Land, Kiki Thorpe - another Disney Fairies chapter book, Laurel's wild about them and they have glitter on the cover.
- Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium Magical Movie Novel, Suzanne Weyn - I bought this to get the free poster with purchase because Natalie Portman is cute. If Laurel isn't interested I'll sell it on half.com or something.

Yes!

We could find a shooting range and be amused by one another's handgun skills. (:

I have a family history but all were diagnosed in their 70s. My doc agreed with me that it was a good idea just to be sure it wasn't something nasty. The tech looked really happy to tell me that I didn't need the mammogram after all!

Now I want to know if the cyst can be drained and if so, I want to take a picture of it to send to auntiesiannan. She shares my satisfaction in popping things.

1. I have the fondest memories of Book Fairs from when I was a child!
2. I am SO glad your lump is a cyst! Yay!
3. Please send the rain to Georgia! We haven't much water. :(

When I was Laurel's age I went to a very small school that didn't have book fairs or do book club orders, so it was fascinating to have those when I went to public school afterward. I even won the three pairs of sneakers drawing from one of the book clubs when I was in fifth grade. I thought I was hot stuff with a pair of LA Gear high tops then!

Now I want to know if my doctor can drain the cyst. I want to see what color it is after last week's episode of House where they drew blood from a patient and it was GREEN. I'd never seen that before.

You can have all our rain! I read you're having a hundred-year drought there. Obviously it's been falling here instead because we had an overly wet spring too. I want a cool, dry fall here.

Glad to hear it's just a cyst! Awesome that the place tried to make it as comfortable as possible!

^ Hooray for unsquished boobies!

I still get to have the lump biopsied. This should be interesting. I hope it comes out cool like the green blood sample on last week's episode of House. That was SO awesome.
