Perimenopause Can SUCK IT #14: Scratch That Itch

Perimenopause is a wild ride, as we have seen HERE  and HERE and, aw hell, just know it’s W-I-L-D! We’ve got mood swings, weight gain, muscle loss, joint pain, insomnia, sexual adjustments (oh my!)…GAA!…it just keeps on comin’, no matter how many times we tell ourselves the worst is almost over. One of the lesser […]

I Swear I’m Not Drunk

I know some folks are gonna tsk-tsk that headline and offer prayers for my soul. That’s okay, I can use all the prayers I can get. I’m in a mood and as usual, I’m gonna write about it.  As I’m writing the words, “I’m in a mood…,” my brain is all SHUT ‘ER DOWN, MISSY! […]

You’re Done With Breast Cancer Treatment! Yay! (Negatory, Ghost Rider) Wait. What?!

After I had endured chemo and surgery, I kept hearing this: You’re done with treatment! Yay! To which I responded, “Negatory, Ghost Rider.” Man, I hate bursting people’s bubbles. “Done with treatment” is nowhere near where I’m at, mah babies, but I’m glad some think I’m so amazingly healthy-lookin’/actin’/feelin’/trash-talkin’ that they would assume the best!

Possibly the Easiest Easter Ham with Pineapple Honey Glaze You’ll Ever Make

Do I have your attention? I like to post this easy spiral ham once a year, because: #1) It’s a fan favorite. #2) It inspires me to buy a ham. #3) Buying a ham = making a ham. #4) Making a ham = eating a ham. #5) Eating a ham = OMT is a happy […]

DSLR’d Take Two

This Canon EOS 6D DSLR beauty still rules my heart: If you missed the first post on my camera adventures, you can read it HERE. So many dreams of what was to come; so much life intervening. Or as the saying goes: Men make plans and God laughs. Today, that changed. My health is GOOD. […]

Grace For The Day

Grace. I love what the word grace does for my soul and for the possibility of all it holds. Grace for the day; grace for the way, baby. Having a saving grace, saves. Burdened with sin; blessed with grace. Grace. I wrote this post in 2014 for Sweet E, but it resonates with me, with […]

Do Not Be Misled: I Was Scared Sh*tless

Caveat: Vulgarity ahead, yet used contextually, with brutal honesty. For those of you who might be offended by coarse language, head’s up: I’m passing along my unvarnished truth without a naughty language edit, hence, HENCE!, the warning. Cancer. If ever there was a word that could scare us shitless, it’s that one. Literally and figuratively, […]

What I’ve Learned: Three Years Later

As a mom of a grown son, I’m aware how fast time slips by, but people, I gotta tell you that I’m stunned three years are behind us since Sweet E entered this world. THREE YEARS! Someone grab a fan, and some sweet tea: the vapors are creepin’ on me! In case you’re new here, […]

Remember The Caretaker!

So many many times during our chemo days (yes, they were ours, not just mine, as Garry took on much of the weight of those days), I would look to my dear Husband, my new caretaker, and feel an overpowering love I have never felt in all our 32-years of marriage. A gentle, no-words-needed, constant […]
