Good times and a lil pole dancing! lol

Friday was my sister Kelly's 45 birthday and we all needed a girls night out! So with my goldy locks wig, my penciled in eyebrows, and my 47 eyelashes I went out to paint the town red! Since all the DH'S were up north ice fishing we had the weekend to do what we wanted....so first stop was the casino.

While playing the slots a woman sat down next to me and proceeded to light up a cigarette and where does the smoke go....my face of course, so I wave the smoke away and she takes notice (us reformed smokers are the worse.....oops my bad! lol) so she makes sure the next puff doesn't go my way....I feel bad now, so I share my secret....she immediately gets up and puts the cigarette out and asks if I'm ok and that she needs to quit smoking herself because she has diabetes and her doctor has already told her it's time to quit and that I am giving her the inspiration to do so and then asks if she can give me a hug....who doesn't love hugs right? We wish each other the best and go our separate ways.

Next stop a dance club.....I love to dance and couldn't wait until I was well and strong enough to get my groove thang up and out on the dance floor.....good Lord this place has elevated dance poles......so off I go! lmaooooo....now trying to pole dance and not loose ones wig turned out to be quite entertaining! lol I had a blast! So did all my girlfriends and even my sister let loose and pole danced...she the more conservative sister and it was fun to see her let go and have a blast.

2 couples take the table next to ours and while going to sit down one of the women bumps into my Cousin Bridget, she says excuse me and then makes a comment about 'girls night out huh?' So Bridget informs her of who the birthday girl is and that it's my first time out since finishing chemo...she informs us that she just finished chemo for her breast cancer in November...she had both breasts removed ....Stage IIIC....8 months of chemo and radiation but is doing very well now and is enjoying her new implants and then shared with us that she just got married 2 weeks ago....life goes on.

So Lisa and I take off to the bathroom to compare our battle scars, even though she opted for implants she still went ahead and had a full tummy tuck plus lypo....she's 46 and has no regrets....while in the bathroom another woman came in just as I was showing off my bald head and congratulated both Lisa and I on being survivors, then went to get one of her buddies whose MIL is battling breast cancer...needless to say it was a 'weep fest' but happy tears in that bathroom. I believe we are guided along through life and meet people who are put there to inspire us...I was inspired by Lisa and the other woman was inspired by me....we are all here to help on another through life...every story has a purpose.

Jim comes home from his ice fishing trip later this morning......I've got a lot of explaining to do! lol lol lol  Casinos and pole dancing..oh what a night! lol lol lol Needless to say, I had to spend my entire Saturday in bed recuperating from all that fun and I'm still a lil wiped out today.....Was it worth it? OH YEAH!!!!!!!! lol lol lol

Life is good and I am thankful!

So happy for you, Kim.  Glad you had such a great time--and at the same time was able to help someone.  Surely helps to understand a little more why things happen, when good comes from what seems so bad at the time.  You are truly an inspiration.  Thanks.  (((((Hugs))))), LaVern

Kim way to go dear, out having a blast and enjoying yourself.  Meeting Lisa and the other woman who came into the Laies Room were meant to be not only for you, but Lisa and the other lady.  I call it the Sister power that women have in being able to share anything with each other and be there and give each other hugs.....what keeps us going.  Now for your pole dancing.  Have you and Jim figured out where you are going to build this in your home....sure your darling would enjoy seeing his love of his life doing the pole dance....think of all the fun you'd have.....take care, have a good day....Arlene (AJ)
