Slow running and bad poetry, all in one place!

Hey, everyone! Sorry, I know I've been remiss in posting on my super wildly popular blog here at WordPress. But today I'll remedy that omission by telling you that not only did I do a really nice, long (for me!) run today (over 5,000 steps/1.5 miles, thankyouverramuch!), I also composed the following horrible poem when … Continue reading Slow running and bad poetry, all in one place!

Nobody got time for that!

Hey, everyone, and happy almost New Year! I was all set to post one of those seemingly obligatory end-of-the-year retrospectives, chronicling my journey from breast cancer surgery in January through the radiation treatments in March and April and all the way through to the colonoscopy in November, and then this morning I had a revelation. … Continue reading Nobody got time for that!

It’s all behind me now!

Hey, everyone! Yes, that's right, my colonoscopy and all the associated prep has passed through my system and now I can relax for another 10 years till the next one! Although I'd like to believe they'll come up with something a little more, shall we say, dignified by then? Or at least less invasive! But … Continue reading It’s all behind me now!

I want a colonoscopy for Christmas, which Weird Al never sang but totally should have!

Hey, everyone! As you may recall (or as you may not know, if you don't know me personally, which is a lot of you, so hi! Thanks for stopping by!), I work part-time for a transcription company, where I create audio tests for new transcribers. Thought you might get a kick out of reading a … Continue reading I want a colonoscopy for Christmas, which Weird Al never sang but totally should have!

Gettin’ things done and makin’ plans!

Well, hey howdy y'all! How the heck are ya? I'm just relaxing after a semi-busy week. Had my PAP smear yesterday, which went fine. The doctor was in and out in less than 5 minutes. Then today I had a follow-up visit with my radiation oncologist at the City of Hope. Everything's lookin' good, she … Continue reading Gettin’ things done and makin’ plans!

What a week! (and Lemon, it’s finally Friday!)

Whew! Well, those of you who follow me on Facebook know I left a rather cryptically worded post a couple of days ago, to the effect that Wednesday had been a bit of a roller coaster ride. First, for those of you who are easily startled, let me reassure you that, as of right now, … Continue reading What a week! (and Lemon, it’s finally Friday!)

Doing another charity walk, yahoo!

Hey, everyone! Would you believe a SUNDAY blog post? Haven't done that in a dog's age, eh? Anyway, I'm making this a quickie to let you know that I've signed up to do the two-mile walk version of the "Miles for Migraine" 5K in Los Angeles (technically, Encino!) on Saturday, November 12, 2022! If you've … Continue reading Doing another charity walk, yahoo!

Friday is for cleanup!

Hey, everyone! Didja miss me yesterday? Well, I didn't miss you! Okay, okay, I don't mean you *personally,* just blogging in general!

Sorry! … Continue reading Friday is for cleanup!

Today’s forecast: brain fog in the morning, clearing by noon!

Hey, everyone! Well, here we are in beautiful, sunny Southern California, on a crisp autumn day in October, and what do you think I see from my window? That's right-- it's so dull, grey, and gloomy outside I can't even find an appropriate meme to express my feelings! (hee hee!) Anyway, this blog post won't … Continue reading Today’s forecast: brain fog in the morning, clearing by noon!
