Today I celebrate (I don’t think celebrate is the right word…maybe acknowledge?) my one month post operative bowel obstruction surgery anniversary. Like the ugly step child, I forgot my hysterectomy monthiversary (it was May 2nd if you want to jot it down in your calendar) which is funny that my hysterectomy is not even on […]

I love the Real Housewives. I watch all of them except New York which I lost interest in Season 1. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is one of my favorites, but like them all, the overly dramatic screaming and diva fighting is getting old. Most of it is contrived, and in my opinion, one step […]

I don’t have to like yours and you don’t have to like mine.

A couple days ago I called out from a Facebook friend for not ‘liking’ their posts often enough. Apparently I used to ‘like’ their stuff a lot more than I do now and the lack of my ‘liking’ has caused a bit of (one sided) contention between us. First, I have to say, I don’t […]

Part II – The Recovery

So far my recovery is progressing as it should, and in my opinion, faster than the doctors anticipated. While I was in the hospital I was 2-3 days behind schedule, now I’ve jumped ahead and I’m super excited about that. The biggest struggle was getting my strength back and regaining some of the stamina I had […]

So what the hell happened to me?

hospital

The official name is post operative scar tissue blockage in the small intestine. It’s actual quite common after abdominal surgery. It’s one of those pesky “complication” they talk about during your pre-op appointments that you consciously don’t pay attention too because you never think it’ll happen to you. But it did happen to me. More […]

Enter MENOPAUSE Stage Right!

uterus

So a couple weeks ago I went to the hospital for a pretty basic medical procedure. The doctor was going to shove a camera (Go Pro?) up my who-ha, clean out my uterus, laser some stuff and take a couple of samples. It was pretty straightforward and I expected to be home within a few hours. They […]

I love this. I don’t love that children are becoming narcissistic ego maniacs, but I love that the phenomenon is being acknowledged. For years we battled this beast with the oldest. Narcissism was one of the few diagnosis’ that seemed to stick as we roamed from doctor to doctor. We learned early on the dangers of what […]

Jennifer Knapp wrote Andrew a letter and I was jealous. Real jealous!

I love music. You only have to check out my side bar for the amount of concerts I attend to figure it out. Of course, I love my Go Go’s and Def Leppard, but my day to day music surprisingly isn’t all 80’s. While I adore many (many) genres of music, I gravitate towards singer […]

It’s just a cake, not a religious sacrament.

  Earlier this week the Oregon couple that refused to bake a cake for a lesbian couples wedding was fined a boat load of money for discrimination. I’m honestly a little torn about that. You’d think I would be firmly planted in the “MAKE THEM PAY” camp, but there is a part of me that […]

Ok, don’t think I’m crazy but my Mom spoke to be from the afterlife.

Yesterday I spent the day celebrating the first birthday of The OC’s since she passed away. It was a good day filled with lots of laughs doing things that she loved. It was a nice way to spend a moment and keep her close in our thoughts. Death and grief are such a tornado of […]
