They Won’t Stay In My Head

It has been confirmed beyond a doubt that I am a visual learner. The news was on TV as I was preparing dinner last night and I could hear the anchor reporting on the day’s events, but I wasn’t actually watching the broadcast. What he said: 17 miners were trapped in an elevator shaft in…

Oh Snap!

Oh Snap! I have a small laundry room and I used to hang my clothes on the door jamb as I took them out of the dryer. That wasn’t a great idea because one, I’m short; and two, the clean clothes were easily knocked down on those rare occasions when I didn’t actually move them…

Who’s Funnier?

Katie and I watched Modern Family tonight and it made me ask a question I never should have. Me:  So who’s funnier? Me or Dad? Katie:  Well, I’m tired. Going to bed now. Me:  Seriously? You’re just going to ignore me? Katie:  Okay, fine. You’re both funny. It’s just that we laugh with Dad, but…

Seriously???

When I was getting ready to start my second round of chemotherapy, Taxotere, my oncologist told me most people had an easier time with it than the adromycin/cytoxin I had been given for the first round. However, joint pain or stiffness is a common side effect. I had my last Taxotere treatment at the end…

A Bunch of Good Stuff

So what’s up? Nothin’ much going on here. Just the usual. You know. Todd’s at work – he’s got major short timer’s disease, but he’s making a valiant effort; Katie’s babysitting; Taylor’s at CIY in Tennessee – kind of like church camp only much more intense. Katie’s Little Homies are going camping this afternoon through…
