Blah, Blah, Blah…

I feel like I’ve got nothing to say. “When have you ever let that stop you before?”, you might be asking. And you’re right! I’ve never let the absence of something to say stop me. So welcome to today’s installment of Mundane Musings. Remember a few weeks ago I was all pumped about starting Weight…

Just Another Oncology Appointment

I got to see all my friends at the White Russian’s office this morning. I was almost sad when he said, “Everything looks great! We don’t need to see you for another six months.” Not the, “everything looks great,” part. The, “we don’t need to see you for another six months,” part. I did something…

This Chapter’s Over. Turn The Page

Yesterday was another pleasant drive into Philadelphia. Little traffic, not much in the way of frustrating drivers, great music and a Venti White Chocolate Mocha from the new drive-through Starbuck’s I pass on the way to the freeway. I drove straight to Penn Tower and found a parking space without the least bit of trouble.…

Stubborn Is as Stubborn Does

I never used to think of myself as stubborn. I was an easy going, laid back kid who most of the time never had to have her way. I was usually happy to do whatever my friends wanted to do. It wasn’t until I had Taylor that I realized “stubborn” comes in all shapes and…

Catching Up

Okay. I’ve only got a little time to tell you what’s been going on. I’ll start with Wednesday. That was my trip in to Philly to have my tattoos touched up and the hair under my arms zapped into oblivion. The ride into the city was pleasant and uneventful. I’m telling you, give me some…

More Nothing

Today was my first day back at work since spring break and the kids’ first day back to school. To say this morning was crumby is an understatement! After more than a week of sleeping late to all of a sudden getting up at 6:30 – or 5:45 if you’re Taylor – was, in the…

Hashimoto!! Gesundheit

Today was yet another doctor’s appointment. This time it was with my new endocrinologist. Well, fairly new. This was my second appointment with her. The reason I need an endocrinologist is because I have half a thyroid. When Todd and I had been married two years (I was 24) I saw the gynecologist for my…

I’m a Fraud

I’m one of those people who are generally pretty good in a crisis. I tend to remain calm while I’m going through it, but as soon as we’re “out of the woods” I break down. When Taylor was 9 months old we couldn’t get him to wake up one Saturday morning. He’d sort of open…

The Latest

Do you remember back in October when Todd fell in the Costco parking lot in the middle of a deluge and then later hurt his hand “helping Ben move“? That’s what he tells everyone, but in reality he was trying to break a bed slat with his wily ninja karate skillz. In his defense he…

Everything’s All White

Get it? “All White” as in “all right”? Clever, no?? Wednesday morning I rushed around to make sure I got out of the house and on the road in time to make it to my oncology appointment by 10:30. His office had moved since the last time I saw him so I wanted to make…
