A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

A few weeks ago I had a scare of epic proportions. I thought I had lost all my digital photo files from 2004 through 2008. That thought made my stomach hurt and my heart ache and I couldn’t concentrate on anything until my hero husband found them on a back up drive. Oh, how I…

Isn’t It Ironic

Almost eight years ago I received a phone call from Diane, the sister of my very best childhood friend, Cindy. She called to tell me that Cindy had been diagnosed with breast cancer.  I fell apart. I’d never had a close friend with such a horrid disease and for it to be this woman who had…

IAATB, Part III

I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready to get this over with. I just want to move on with my life. So without further ado, I give you… The day after Mother’s Day/Race for the Cure day I had my first routine breast MRI. My first MRI of any body part…

IAATB – Part II (And An Apology)

First the apology. I’m sorry. I know there are several of you whose lives revolve around this blog and I’ve gone over a month – a whole, long month – without blogging at all, the longest I’ve ever gone. And after I promised to endeavor to attempt to try to do better. I will make…

It’s All About The Boobs – Part I

I know, I know. It’s been two weeks since I tantalized you with the promise of three boob stories. Sorry to leave you hanging. [*snort* That made me think of the old song I used to sing to my mom, “Do your boobs hang low…” But I digress.] Without further ado, here is part one…

Five Years Ago Today…

Five years ago today I had the life-saving surgery to remove the cancerous tumor from my body. Not only was the malignancy removed, my entire left breast was removed. Five years ago today I had a huge incision across the concave side of my chest and a drainage tube at each end. Of course, five…

Hidey Ho, There!

Let me reintroduce myself since it’s been so long. My name is Jenster and I write this blog about nothing. Nice to be reconnected. So much for the old, “I’m going to write a post at least once a week”, blabber. I knew I should have said once a month. I have so much to…

I’m So Lame

You may or may not recall the goal I had set for myself back in January. Not a resolution for the new year. Homie don’t play that. But I did make a goal to write on this blog and my Trippin’ Through The Bible blog at least once a week. I did really well for…

Randomosity

Katie’s still skiing and enjoying every minute of it. Last night she called but could hardly talk because she was laughing so hard. I have no idea what was so funny, but I couldn’t help giggling. I am definitely ready for her to come home, though. I miss her and I’m not ashamed to say…
