It's OK!

I don't know about y'all but it's been one heck of a work week for this gal. I should write something inspiring or educational, but honestly, I don't have it in me. (And really, who are we kidding? I use this blog simply to chat about MelaNormal: Living with Melanoma. That being said, I thought I'd link-up for the always fun "It's OK Thursday" party with Neely from A Complete Waste of Makeup. 


Its Ok Thursdays


It's OK...

...to not be really into Christmas this year. (I mean, I have scans, treatment & a house to move into!)
...to curse people who refuse to wave after you've made the effort to let them into the line of traffic.
...to absolutely love the pictures people post of Elf on the Shelf.

...to absolutely love the inappropriate pictures people post of Elf on the Shelf.
...to be excited that the mean lady is retiring.
...to ignore the chores for couch time with my fella.
...to be absolutely traumatized by this little baby:


...to spend an hour on Twitter discussing important melanoma topics with Hillary Fogelson.


...to realize you are getting old when you feel frustration instead of excitement over Instagram.
...to feel anxiety when you receive the word that 2 more people you know in "real life" had family members diagnosed with melanoma just this week.


...to act like a silly girl with a crush when you receive messages from people who inspire you.
...to adore my clean and organized new blog page. (Thanks, Joelle!)
...to go to bed at 8:30.


Happy Friday Eve!

As usual, your blog postings are always spot on! I too am not feeling super Christmasy this year since I have a scan scheduled on December 17th. I was feeling kind of guilty, but I really do think it is okay to crank it down a notch or two this year.

I also want to add one more "It's Okay"..... "It's okay to want to punch people who say they know what you're going through with stage IIIb melanoma because they had a mole frozen off 2 years ago." (this gem was said to me a couple of days ago)

Oh yes...that line.

I'll bail you out of jail if needed! ;-)
