I Still Have Time


There has been no WiFi at my house for several weeks. It has been a blessing and a curse.

I’ve spent the last few weeks looking at my kids. Really looking at them without stalking them exactly. My teenager is overjoyed when I’m not stalking her. I can hear her rolling her eyes right now.

Up until I knew what the mammogram results said, it didn’t really matter if I had WiFi. My kids are about to picket outside the house though. I didn’t tell them about getting tests done. I was waiting until I knew more.

Now I know. I DO NOT have breast cancer for which I am thankful. Although, I did have that feeling when you take your car to get fixed for making noises and then it doesn’t make a peep for anyone else. Plus, I felt a bit guilty. Is that normal? Do other people feel guilty for not getting bad news?

So my body is a bit of a liar and my heart is always guilty. I’ll live with it. I’m really glad that I have time to stick around and stalk my kids for awhile longer.

It’s been so nice to actually see everyone’s face for a few extra moments. My kid has been reading to me before she goes to bed. We’ve been practicing spelling words – like we should be doing anyway if we don’t want to repeat a grade.

I can breathe again. I still have time to finish whatever it is that I should be doing.

  1. I feel a little guilty… For not getting bad news.
    So I guess it’s a fairly normal reaction.
