Sprucing things up after chemo

Today is my first real no-chemo Monday. And I’m celebrating by setting up new digs for the blog. When I set up the tumblr blog, I was 2 days post-diagnosis, not really able to think straight, and really not thinking long term. Tumblr was easy, quick and free, so off I went. Right away, the …

Special New Year Thank Yous

it’s the eve of Rosh Hashana Eve and most of my friends are busy making apple cakes and setting fancy tables. I’m not cooking this year, having been warmly invited to join both family and friends for all festive meals. I’m not even putting up the Sukkah, which makes me very sad, but also relieves …

Remembering the most amazing weekend ever

The last 2 days were unbelievable. Unless you are one of the 3 people who are not friends with me on FB or you are a person from the future who is reading blogs from the yesteryears on whatever technology you have, you already know most of what I’m about to say, but I need …

Getting Pink-a-licious around here

I don’t do pink. I only own one pink dress, a souvenir from a trip to Rome. I certainly DONT’T do pink products that claim to support breast cancer. Because buying a pink snow brush does nothing to help breast cancer. But I do fundraise directly for the hospital. Over 7000$ so far this year, …

#chemostyle yes, I know, I’m wearing jeans! BUT! I’m flying solo today and I needed lots of pockets! Solo, but not alone. That bracelet? My 40th bday gift from all my girlfriends. And that super cosy shawlette? Just arrived in the mail from Magda, who is now here with me in spirit today.

One year ago today, the beeper went off

One year ago today, we shipped SQ off to camp for the first time. It was so momentous, to send off our puzzling-and-amazing child off for 2 weeks, that we invited tons of our friends to our house to take a swim and have a drink to celebrate what we thought was going to be …

It’s the Unpredictability that gets me

Round 1 was OK. Round 2 was worse, but not in the way I had expected. Round 3 was The Pits, but only after giving me false hope of being ok. And now Round 4. The truth is, I didn’t have time for Round 4. I was busy. I packed up our cottage after we …

I’ve Got Mail!

Several nice things have come out of this nightmare. We are being helped, supported and cared for by an army of friends and acquaintances who are providing meals (I can eat, but I CANNOT stand the smell of cooking food. being in the kitchen to cook is hell), coming with me to chemo or taking …

well that was weird

A lot of people have been telling me I should write a book. And I keep thinking: why would I write a book? I’ve been blogging for a dozen years, it’s all out there already! But today I was thinking about bloggers who have written books (my idol, The Bloggess for one) and it made …
