Your Breast Friend

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 12:27:45 +0000

I went to San Jose a few weeks ago. Got a tour of my favorite Social Network’s HQ. Instead of being impressed, I found myself feeling sad. All those little Millenials, walking around, looking identical to each other — living in a weird microcosmic environment that doesn’t appear to reflect anything that I experience in […]

Our neighbors’ marriage imploded. They put their house up for sale and now we have new neighbors. The word got out that our new neighbors have a 3-year-old son. Over the last few weeks, I’ve spent more time than I care to admit staring out the window, hoping for signs of life from them. Although […]

Forward March

I feel age catching up to me. The kids today are different and I feel a division. Technology is changing and what was easy for me is getting so very hard. I feel my focus moving from me to my sons… it’s no longer about me at all. I also feel tired. It’s constant clawing […]

Journal daily as a way to express and explore my feelings and come to terms with the situations happening […]

Time keeps on tickin’ tickin’ tickin’

I got some bad news today. I am hoping everything will be okay. In other news, I have a second edition I must start on and I must stop procrastinating. Little Jimmy sat on the toilet and peed a little the other day… gotta get him to do that more often.

She had a dream

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 18:19:12 +0000

Delivered a presentation this morning. Prior to starting, I schmoozed with attendees. Spoke with a woman who quizzed me on the election. I try to avoid politics; it’s never something that will end well. Regardless, we chatted around the topic. She told me she voted for Trump, I told her I voted for Johnson. We […]

The world hasn’t ended

I really thought Hillary would win. I mean, I KNEW IT! Rather than watch election results coversage, I tuned into TCM and watched Hitchcock’s Saboteur starring Robert Cummings and Priscilla Lane. Is it just me or does it seem like Priscilla Lane was always on the lam in every movie she starred? Except for Arsenic […]

3 Years of Wedded Bliss

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 17:15:48 +0000

The 12th was my wedding anniversary. Three years of wedded bliss. I am loving every minute of it. I do cast my mind back to my single, non-mother days and wonder how in the world I thought I was busy? It really amazes me more mothers didn’t punch me in the face when I would […]

I think I’m turning Japanese, I really think so

The biopsy results came back. Nodules are benign but I apparently have Hashimoto’s disease based upon the white cell count. Ultimately this is no huge deal. It just means hormone therapy for the rest of my life. I’ve already been taking Synthroid for the last 6 months and it’s made a huge difference in my […]

My thyroid is lumpy and juicy

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:48:14 +0000

With every second, minute, hour that passes, I feel a little bit better. Tomorrow I will truly feel relieved. Yesterday I had a biopsy performed on my thyroid. The doctor said that if the results aren’t good (meaning cancer or Hashimoto’s) the lab will call within 24 to 48 hours. Otherwise, results will arrive in […]
