Tick Tock. Tick Tock. Tick Tock...

The Universe must think I am an incredibly slow learner.  Waiting a week for biopsy results is crazy. And a test of my patience. And a test of my ability to handle stress. And a test of my wild imagination. And a test of my sense of humor. 

If you should ever find yourself in a similar situation, here are 21 things to do while waiting to see if you have cancer:

  1. Rearrange your house.
  2. See a comedy show.
  3. See Steve Martin in concert.
  4. Take your dog to the Vet for a mani-pedi.
  5. Eat some wickedly fattening Mexican food.
  6. Take a very long walk in nature very early in the morning.
  7. Create something. Anything.
  8. Back to that eating thing... ice cream. Lots of it. Within reason.
  9. Purge your closet. And just about every other part of your house.
  10. Alphabetize the DVD movies you never watch anymore.
  11. Trim your rose bushes.
  12. Do a little retail therapy. Within reason. Or not.
  13. Ok, maybe I'm a little obsessed with the food thing - but make a homemade pizza. With lots of cheese.
  14. Laugh. Because what choice do you have?
  15. Spend time with an old friend. And laugh. A lot.
  16. Stay positive. (Ok, that one's wearing a little thin.)
  17. Remember and appreciate how lucky you are to have loving support from friends and family - and especially from that one special guy who is just as nervous as you are. 
  18. Make plans for the future - vacations, more comedy shows, more concerts, plays... anything.
  19. Stop worrying about your weight. It may turn out to be totally irrelevant. And the least of your problems.
  20. Drink the good champagne. Within reason. Or not.
  21. Calm the hell down. You're not in control of this one...
