skipping the prom
it's snowing! Body aches & scratchy throat won't stop me from sneaking in a little snow ride today... for five solid hours yesterday, I buried myself under a down blanket on the couch...rising only to get my son on the bus & shovel the driveway. A night in with the Goonies, old-school method popcorn, and Super Mario Bros left me feeling slightly less crappy this morning. Good. I'll take it. So, if this minor surgery I am scheduled for in two weeks is no biggie, just "routine", "preventative", how come I can't wait til I have health insurance again to do it?? I don't know about you, but I don't have piles of extra money laying around waiting for a rainy day or expensive medical procedures...just saying. But, I trust my doctor & that's that. Apparently, the roller rink has reopened & my cousin is getting into roller derby. She has 4 children (one is a senior in high school). Now, that's badass... I am skipping the prom this year. Don't feel like navigating 76 & the skinny streets of Manayunk in the snow...I'm a wuss now.
