Wonderful, wonderful, excellent news! My sister's sternum pain? That showed up on the cancer scan? It's not cancer! It's arthritis, of all things. Woo Hoo! I can't even tell you how excited we all were when we found out today. Whole new outlook on life. Love it.

Seems odd to follow that with mundane random stuff, but my day was mundane and random.

No horseplay. Bad weather. But I did hang out with the boys while they were eating, and watched Scout climb into his hay feeder and pee on his hay. WHY do they pee on their hay? I know why, but still, it irritates me. Cisco wasn't impressed either, when he tried to steal Scout's hay. He quickly changed his mind.

Today was our dog India's 10th birthday. We're not big on doggie birthday parties, but we always remember! I gave her a piece of carrot and an apple core today to celebrate. She was happy.

I also made split pea soup for the first time today. I hated it when I was a kid. Then I tried it at my sister's a year ago or so and it was totally edible. John wasn't eating with us tonight so I decided to try making it myself. (John isn't a big legume fan.) It turned out awesome. I ate too much.
