that old school drug commercial keeps going through my head. the whole eggs frying in the pan talking about this is your brain on drugs thing. this is the kind of thing i think of when i think of people looking at my brain tomorrow. NO, they will not discover my brain is corroded due to years of drug use.....unless you count caffeine and cigarettes (yes, i was a smoker before i was a mom...scandalous i know) but it's just WEIRD that people will be taking pictures of my brain. i just kind of think, well, what the heck are they looking for anyway? the dr. never explained it...and like a true woman, concerned only with getting the heck out of the office and over to the mall for the killer sale at the gap, i didn't ask questions. i just nodded and said "ok, sure...who do i make this check out to?" so i'm kinda sitting here thinking maybe i should've asked more questions. but i've never been the one to ask the hard questions. i only ask when i really want to know, and even though i'm just having constant excruciating headaches, day in and day out for the last 6 months....i'm sure it's nothing. i mean, i have 3 kids....that's enough to give anyone a constant headache right???
so, i'm wondering if i'll get to see the pictures??? kinda cool to see your own brain. :)
i'm going to veer off of the fascinating topic of my brain scan and move into my AWESOME NEWS!!!!!!!!!!
i'm super excited and minorly nervous about this...but my mom is moving here in november! :) woohoo! she has talked about moving here for 6 years but always had the responsibility of taking care of my grandmother. but after grannie passed away last year she's been super lonely and just ready to make a change. sooo, after 6 years she's finally going to be a Texan! :) i fly up to MO, in November for one of my best friend's wedding in St. Louis and I'm going to go home that weekend and help mom load up and we're going to drive back to SA together. She should be here right before Thanksgiving and my birthday so i'm super excited. The kids are stoked too. They've never had any of their grandparents close by so it will be awesome for them.
so, good news. good news. :) and if they discover some massive brain tumor in my head tomorrow she'll be able to be here to cook me some mean biscuits and gravy. :) woohoo! can't beat that!
