So today is Saturday, June 22,2019, and is a beautiful day. The last week was interesting. First, this is my first post in a long while. I figured it’s time to get back into blogging. So let me.start by saying Congratulations to all 2019 graduates. Enjoy your summer because here comes the hard part. For the first of many times, in addition to the first of many times, you will experience life as an adult. For some, it is just a continuation of growing up and for others it is the first indication that Mommy and Daddy won’t always be there, and now is when those decisions we make count. For some they travel to a different state, country, and others stay at home. Some work and go to school, while others just go to school. Some raise children, work and attend school. But from now on what you get is life, death and taxes.
So personally, I have had a week. I had my first mammogram this past Monday. I always thought you had to be big busted, yes ladies, to get a mammogram, because small busted woman like myself don’t have enough to worry. The woman who did my test stated that the breast size had nothing to do with the test, but the tissue did. The denser the tissue the harder to detect cancer. Well, it was slightly uncomfortable the test but, over shortly. She took several pictures and told me, “If you need to come back for a second appointment, we will contact you.”. I received a letter that stated no cancer detected in my tissue. This was considered my baseline test from which all other mammograms will be based on.
I have lost two aunts to cancer, and several other family members as well. I believe it is important to be tested and to handle the matter in house with your family. You all at some point will be called upon to say goodbye to that family member and no matter what your relationship might be, that same goodbye will not be easy. Take some time, get tested, and grow your knowledge.
Second, I am starting a budget. For those in the know🐌: how you ask? I don’t have a steady paycheck, but have been reading and found out it is doable. So today, I make up my budget. Expenses currently are not many, but they include a credit card bill. My source of income has to be sent in for me to receive it meaning I send in my article. And wallah beginning of my budget. Included in said budget is also what I want to save for. I believe I can do it.
Summer is here. What do you plan to do? Travel, gain new family members, or just expand your horizons? Whatever it is, drop me a line. If you send an email, I will respond. For this time, I have a request: send in your graduation 🎓story. It can be current or old. I will pick three stories to print as is. Please check your writing before you send, thanks.
For those in the know🐌 is.BACK!
