A few things that made me do the happy dance this week.
My SIL had the genetic test performed (3) weeks ago to see whether she carries the BRCA gene, which increases the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Her mother had breast cancer at 40, and she had it at 39, and again at 69. Since she only has (1) child, a daughter, now (45) it was important for them to find out whether she carried the gene. She doesn't -- thankfully, but it still does not explain why she had breast cancer twice. She is super relieved, that her daughter does not have to worry more (than she already does) about developing breast or ovarian cancer.
BTW: She does not need chemo or radiation, and will be on some hormone therapy pills for the next five years, as a preventative measure for future cancers.
Is there anyone, except (former) President Mubarak, who wasn't happy about what occurred yesterday?
Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, -- This audio book is such a wonderful treat; I've smiled a lot listening to it over the last (2) days. You must try it if you like audio books. I'll be through with it by Sunday, and will be sad about that for a bit.
New photo of my "grandcats" sent to me this week --

New best buddies
My husband got this as one of his Hanukkah gifts, and wasn't sure what to buy with it, so he purchased an Amazon Gift card (at Best Buy) with it (FOR ME)....what a guy! Can you say...Kindle Books :)
And, as reward for enduring some 40" of snow thus far this winter, we decided to reward ourselves with a trip to San Diego, California in May. Neither of us has been to San Diego -- just San Francisco (me) and Malibu (he), so this should be lots of fun. If any of you live in the San Diego area and would like to share your must see thoughts with us, we'd appreciate it. So far we plan to: see a ball game at PETCO park, visit Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo, Seaport Harbor and Harbor Tour, Gas Light Village and just relax by the pool a lot as well.
Have a great weekend everyone. Hope you do a lot of smiling!
