I had my biopsy on Wednesday of last week. I guess I was way more nervous than I thought because I ended up with a nasty respiratory tract infection that required some serious medications (Z-Pac, codeine cough medicine, and an inhaler). Anyone who knows me will tell you that I rarely ever get sick and […]
I had my second mammogram a few weeks ago. I only get them every two years as there’s no history of breast cancer in my family. My first one didn’t show any abnormalities so I figured this one would be the same. Imagine my surprise when I got a phone call asking me to come […]

After my divorce, I swore off men forever. They were no good, cheating, lying a-holes that weren’t to be trusted. Who needed them? Certainly not me. I was able to buy my own adorable house, pay my bills, and as for the sex thing…well, let’s just say that I don’t exactly need a man for […]
I’m sure we’ve all done it. Had some big decision come up and the mind instantly start revving into high gear, playing all sorts of scenarios as to how the thing will play out, what all the players will say, how we will respond to each possibility. And then it happens. We go to a […]
Anyone who knows me knows I love to take photographs and document pretty much everything. I splurged years ago and bought a Canon Rebel camera with a high zoom lens. I even got a purse that doubles as a camera bag so I can take that sucker with me everywhere. One of my favorite places […]
