That’s a real thing, you know. At least it is for me. I found it by chance, because I decided to go ahead and go into the boutique at my cancer center, the one that I didn’t want to go into. The lady who worked there is just so nice. Pamela. What a doll. Anyway, … More I Passed Cancer Class!
One of the things I promised myself that I would make a priority again this year was going to see live shows and concerts. I love them and always have. For many, many years I didn’t go to shows. At all. Then it was just kids’ shows, then one for me every couple of years. … More The Grateful Dread
It has occurred to me that I’ve left out some pretty big details. It occurred to me because I’m answering many of the same questions over and over. So, here is a synopsis of my personal breast cancer. It’s really important to remember that your cancer, or your mom’s, aunt’s, friend’s, sister’s, or third cousin four times removed’s cancer … More Information Station
That’s it- I’m done wallowing. Done. Done-teh-de-done-done. I’M DONE WALLOWING!!!! Fuck that noise. No, seriously. I mean, I think it’s ok to have moments, and I’m still mad as all hell, but I gave myself some time to grieve and was just…wallowing. Like a pig. There’s no reason for this. None. Ok, cancer, but there are, … More Suck It Up, Buttercup!
My Cancer Playlist I used to fancy myself adventurous. It was self-deceptive but it felt good to think that I was someone who took risks on a whim. Realistically, I’ve always needed someone else to be my wingman, or something that spurred me on (like vodka, for instance). But adventurous, I am not. I truly, truly, … More Did I Mention How Much I Hate Roller Coasters?
There are times in this ridiculousness when I get to be normal. Well, maybe a facsimile of my version of normal, which is always a bit off anyway. But I digress. It has been a week with two birthdays, and we have cake. Red velvet cake, home made cupcakes, Publix cupcakes, and Chuck E Cheese cake. That, my friends, … More Let Them Eat Cake.

Some days are such rollercoasters. Friday was just such a day. I was late getting Q (a.k.a #5) to daycare, then forgot to send her with a towel because, of course, it was water day. I was already late to my appointment. So sorry, almost 4 year old. No towel for you. I’m pretty sure the … More The Ugly Cry
I wanted to get my boobs done. After 5 kids, breastfeeding, and the typical crisis of a woman of a certain age range, I simply wanted a tummy tuck and a boob job. In fact it took years before I was emotionally ready for those, even though it’s what I really, really, really wanted. I wanted to improve them, … More Dear, You Have A Little Bit Of Cancer
