Confessions of my past life: The parking lot

Well. Here goes nothin’,,,, Actually, here goes something that has been lingering in the back of my mind since I started writing several years ago. Until today I have been too chicken to tell this story to the masses. I am still afraid, don’t get me wrong, but for whatever reason, I am sensing thatContinue reading “Confessions of my past life: The parking lot”

“I Choose Not to Run”-Jerry Seinfeld

You may recall a story I have told you before about how I “run marathons.” In 2015, as my husband and I sat on the edge of my new bed at the hospital (where I would remain for the next 35 days), we were in complete shock. The news of my Leukemia diagnosis was stillContinue reading ““I Choose Not to Run”-Jerry Seinfeld”

You go first

Someone’s gotta GO FIRST. It might as well be me. I have a confession to make: I watched the move “Bad Moms”. Yep. I was eating dinner while watching TV (another confession…sorry mom!) and it was on some chick-channel and I got sucked in. I am not necessary encouraging you to watch it (it wasContinue reading “You go first”

There But For the Grace Of God…

A couple of days ago my husband and I had the opportunity to be on a panel designed to encourage and support caregivers of cancer patients.

What a perfect way to “remember” all we have been through and how farContinue reading “There But For the Grace Of God…”

Soul-Selfie

I am terrible at taking Selfies. Just ask my teenage daughter. She has it mastered, like most teenagers. But I struggle, people. I struggle. I never know where to look—that’s the first problem: at the screen, so I can see how I look, or at that little hole so I don’t look cross-eyed? Then there’sContinue reading “Soul-Selfie”

On Cussing*…

Last time I wrote I promised an upcoming blog on “cussing”. So, it’s been about a week and I hope it hasn’t leaked out of my head. But honestly, these thoughts have been on my mind for a few years, so recalling my thoughts on it shouldn’t be too difficult (though they might lack theContinue reading “On Cussing*…”

One and Two

When I was in the hospital with Leukemia I met some new friends. Many nurses and doctors became my friends, but I also made 4 new friends who also had Leukemia. We became fast friends. And even though we don’t know what each other’s favorite movies are or favorite foods (other than anything NOT fromContinue reading “One and Two”
