Today Was Easier Than Expected...
I went to that doctor's appointment this morning, and was told that I have colon cancer.
Just judging from what the doctor had said in the colonoscopy recovery room, I was expecting bad news, but I was kind of surprised that I wasn... Read more
What a day!
I had that colonoscopy I'd been dreading yesterday. Turns out there was good reason for one...

I've spent the last week at a friend's house in Oregon while my hubby is getting our new place ready (He doesn't like me around when the big stuff is being moved, he's nervous that I'll get in the way and get hurt! LOL)
The people I'm stayi... Read more
I've been really trying to use the techniques I've been learning to improve my life. Like, I have a "gratitude rock" I've been carrying around in my pocket. Every morning, when I put it in my pocket, I think about the things I'm grateful for. ... Read more
DH and I are moving again... and even though circumstances pushed us into it, somehow it seems different this time. We were excited when we moved into the place but being here... well, let's just say, it wasn't what we expected! LOL One thing ... Read more
Early Morning Hours
Just some more thoughts on that last blog of mine... I fell asleep thinking about a good night of rest, and I actually slept for seven hours straight last night... the first time in a long while! LOL
It's the last day of the month, and as I... Read more
I was reading someone's blog this morning, and she was talking about trying to quit having a love affair with a particular food... and it reminded me of something else I'd been reading. (A lot of reading going on at my house lately! LOL)
