What I'm loving Wednesday!

I'm loving that I got my yearly mammogram today!

You may not think that's something to love but I love my girls and I do all I can to make sure they stay healthy.  I think mammograms have gotten an erroneous bad reputation.  They do not hurt.  So if you're out there reading this and you've been putting off getting your first mammogram because you think they hurt or are uncomfortable, girl, make an appointment!  If you're 35, you should have already had your baseline mammogram, one they can compare your yearly ones to once you hit the big FOUR OH.  Technology is a beautiful thing and the equipment they use now is so much better than that of even two or three years ago.  The shelves are padded and soft and rounded and YOU control the pressure.  It's a little pinchy but that is IT.  There's no pain whatsoever.  Mammograms can't catch 100% of cancers, no equipment can, but with regular mammograms, the chances of catching something small and in its early stages are so much higher.  

Get your mammograms and protect second base!  :)

I'm also loving that I'm not losing 100 gallons of water out in the yard today!  Yay!!!


  1. I wanna KNOW where u go for these! They always hurt me!! NEVER seen anything padded up here..UGH.
    Glad you take care of this because it is VIP for all women.
    Luv ya

  2. I go to the Imaging Center here in Warner Robins. I would call around and find me a padded one. The first one I had years ago was just metal plates. Ow!! Your girls deserve pillows!!! LOL
