What's Going On

This is just a quick update on things Blisters/Rash – The steroid cream helps to dry them up, but it doesn’t keep new ones from popping up. I’m very tired of this. My winking pirate now looks like a diseased pirate who lost the tavern brawl. If you don’t know what my winking pirate is…

Weight Watchers

The Hawaii trip is a little less than four months away. I had really hoped to be HOT by the time I stepped on the plane. Or if not exactly hot, then at least restored to my former glory. The glory that was me before I gained 30 pounds on chemo. While not hot, I…

GPS – Gender Particular Suppositions

Todd and I didn’t exchange gifts for Christmas this year. Instead we purchased a GPS. Apparently, he is not amused by my frequent and unintended use of alternate routes. I have to be honest – I wasn’t thrilled about this idea for two reasons: 1) I had a great Christmas list. I took the time…

Abba-Zaba Baby!!

One of my favorite candies ever is the Abba-Zaba. Not so good for the teeth, but very, VERY good for the tummy. Unfortunately they’re not so easy to find any more. But fortunately, there is a candy store in the King of Prussia Mall that sells them. I was in there buying candy for Christmas…

Lots and Lots of Random Thoughts

When I was trying to decide what to call my blog I came up with “Jenster’s Mundane Musings.” An apt description for sure, but one that would probably cause people to just keep going. Who wants to read mundane? Except, of course, for the people who feel some responsibility for reading my blog. Like family.…

Yet Another Thing

When I woke to a steady snow this morning my first thought was, “Great. I bet they cancel my doctor’s appointment this afternoon.” I didn’t used to be so negative, but the last couple years have instilled the “expect the worst” program in me. Thankfully I was wrong. Bessie (my van) hydroplanes when it hits…

Blizzard Food

According to weather people everywhere, we may or may not be getting our first storm of the winter tomorrow. They all agree it will snow. That’s not in question. What IS in question is how much. Will it be merely a nuisance snow or a plowable snow? I don’t think they have any idea and…
