Two Down, One to Go

Apparently I’m back from hiatus. Does ten days qualify as a hiatus? And is it just me, or do you guys think of a hiatal hernia when you see the word “hiatus”? Just me? Hm. Anyway, today was the final touch up on my tattoos. Happy I am that’s over because it means my reconstruction…

The End of a Season

I am officially no longer an assistant preschool teacher. As I’ve said many times, my gifts lie elsewhere very far away from child care or teaching young children. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t love them and two to three-year-olds are pretty adorable. When they’re being adorable. And frankly, even when they’re not being adorable…

ROAD TRIP!

I’m not back to stay, but seeing as today was a holiday I decided to tell you about my weekend. I have checked a few things off the list, though I still have quite a bit left. Still, I probably will be hanging around a little bit more. (Thanks to those of you who sent…

My Week In Arkansas, Part Two

I’m not sure what my deal is, but I’m having the hardest time getting the Arkansas trip written. In fact I’m having the hardest time getting anything written. Or done. I think I’ll blame the puppy. When we last parted I was regaling you with my wallpaper faux pas. Let’s move past that, okay? Friday,…

My Week In Arkansas, Part One

While I’m not even close to being a linear thinker, I do believe stories are best when started at the beginning. So here it goes. Wednesday, April 23: Todd and I stopped at the local Wawa on our way to the Philadelphia airport for gas and coffee. In that order. Gas for the car. Coffee…

It's Been Three Years

Tomorrow I will officially be a three year breast cancer survivor. I’ve already told the story about the day I became a survivor – the day the cancer and surrounding tissue, i.e., my breast, were removed from my body. But if you missed it and have a few minutes to kill you can read it…
