OK. I did have some great weddings Monday. I did six weddings. But forget them. I have more important things to write about. I am sorry Nomei, maybe tomorrow the weddings.

Tuesday was long, it was tiring, it cost me money. I met C my friend with breast cancer @ 8:15 A.M. Tuesday. Those who know me know I don't do mornings. I get up between 7:30 and 8:30. I am dressed and out the door around 12: 15. I am a little slow in the mornings. I was @ Kaiser Walnut Creek at 8 :05 this morning. (non Bay Area readers, that is at least a 20 minutes drive) We met with her Oncologist at 8:30. We know she is going to be fine, the pathology report was great. But it is scary to talk about radiation and possible recurrence. And it is draining to keep her laughing and keep her calm. Her hands were shaking as we talked to the doctor.

So I did some retail therapy. I bought two blouses that are professional looking, so I can wear them to marry couples, and a pair of shoes. And as I walked to the checkout counter I saw purses. Lots and lots of purses. I wanted them all. And then I saw it. A red, girly girl purse.

I do not wear girly girl clothes. I like funky clothes, but over all no frills, rarely ruffles, no lace. But this purse talked to me. Red leather, braided shoulder straps, and one whole side of chiffon sparkly cabbage roses. I needed this purse. Really needed it. But I left, it was silly to spend the money on another purse.

I had my hair cut and talked about the purse and thought about the purse. And yes, I went back and bought the purse. I love my new purse.

You're right; this is Serious. Even I have wavered in front of girly purses, & I carry my backpack everywhere. You'd better bring that purse to Janet R's or at least post a photo. And when I visit here next, I want weddings.
I'm glad C's okay, & knocking wood right now for her.
