15/30 Poster-girl

wakposterbig

The Half-Way Point!!!! (there is a big chance there will be in fact a few more extra sessions at the time, but let’s just be happy for 15!!!!) Anyhow, as you probably all know by now, I have become the poster-child for breast cancer. Literally, ‘The Face’ of The Weekend to End Women’s Cancer 2014.Ta …

The Dress Analogy

You have been paying me a lot of compliments on my pixie hair. Thank You. I do appreciate the compliments, and I agree with you, it’s looking cute. It’s just not me. Here is how I explained it to my girls the other day. See this dress? Isn’t it nice? I bet a lot of …

Again with that damn joy!

‘Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit. Talk about your joys.’ Rita Schiano A. posted this on her FB yesterday with a little joke about someone trying to put her out of business (she’s a complaint expert!) What is it with people and Joy? Yes, I know, power of positive thinking, …

“It’s the tiny things that make us feel human, or inhuman”

I’ve been trying to explain how I’m feeling lately. Rads are not painful, but they are exhausting. The daily repetitive nature is absolutely gruelling to a person like me. I’ve never done the same thing, day-in, day-out. I’m in creative environment and every day is different. When I scan my card in the waiting room …

Cancer is making me a patient person

20131115-150533.jpg

I am very punctual. As in 10 min early to everything. I despise being late, resent having to wait for late people. Which means waiting in hospitals has been a personal challenge of sorts. When I go see the plastic surgeon, I know he will be an hour late, he always is, so I build …

12/30 help me find a book

We had so much fun when you participated in the comments last week, let’s do it again! And this time, it won’t cost you a penny! I might have mentioned before that I am not an avid reader. I think there are 2 reasons for this: 1) I cannot read and knit at the same …

11/30 The People-Watching entertains me

11 of 30, I guess that means I did 1 third. Except for the extra bonus ones they are going to tack on to the end…. I was walking to radio-oncology today when I ran into an elderly man marching in the hallway. Marching, military style, arms straight out, knees all the way up past …

Cowlicks are forever

9/30 The Spatula in the Bathroom

I have a few serious posts sitting in my draft box. They are not quite right. I keep working and reworking them. One is titled Yes, I am a Selfish Bitch, and the other one is All Levels of Hard. I hope to get them right at some point, but until I do, I will …

8/30 I’m attached to my hair products

Confession: if a CSI team came to my bathroom, they would profile me as still having long hair. I still have a 3/4 full bottle of Hang Straight from Aveda, several ampoules of leave-in treatments, dry shampoo for those days when I didn’t quite feel like dealing with it all and enough anti-frizz for a …
