Regardless of the situation, no matter how hopeless the outcome may be, I will never quit, and I will never back down. I have become the wolf.

Merry Sabbath all


This is a day that way meant to be worshiped, however you choose to do it.  The sun is shining, the air is crisp and cold, the leaves are blowing all around.  It’s a great day to be alive!  Mary, Tito, Joe, Mom and I went to church this morning. It’s always nice to get to spend time with them on Sundays catching up. I’m so glad that mom is back down for the winter. I love having her join us for church.  The sunlight streaming through the stained glass was inspiring. The service was kind of not great, even though Fr. Tom did his best. The power was out and all he had was a karaoke machine with batteries. Not the best sound system in the world, but he made do. 

I feel so good that I’m going to ask everyone for a favor.  Tomorrow, Monday the 14th of Nov 2011, I would like for everyone to do something nice for someone else.  It doesn’t have to be life changing nice, could be holding the door open nice, giving up a parking spot nice, pay for an old persons lunch nice.  You know, down home nice.  Send a card to someone you haven’t talked to in a while, call someone, take your elderly neighbors dog for a long walk.  As long as it makes you smile inside, you did good.

Two days and I’m off to Virginia to play and learn and probably burn myself at least twice.  Just sitting here trying to figure my med schedule and how to modify to take full advantage of alertness and to minimize the zoning out times.  Can’t be eliminated, but can be controlled.  I wonder If I can still do an all nighter?  I’m still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that Joe offered this wonderful gift.  What a best friend and husband I have. 

Too many good things happening at once;  got told my cancer is gone, got given this wonderful trip, got a 6 week reprieve from treatment.  I can’t help but wait for the other shoe to drop.  Why can’t I be a glass half full type person?

  I’m off now to take Oscar for a walk (maybe I’ll grab Pookie too) then I’m going to torch for a few hours.  Work some of this excitement off.

Have a blessed day everyone.  Please don’t move any faster than your guardian angel can fly.

Remember:  Most accidents happen in the home.  I’m heading to the bar.

It’s going to be a glorious weekend


It started this morning with a shoe shopping spree.  Six, count ’em six pairs of new shoes.  I hit a buy one get one free sale.  I can’t wait till Joe sees my shoes for tonite.  They rock.  Lots of heel and strap and zippers. 

Tonite BTW is dinner at the Whitney in Detroit.  I’ve never been before and I don’t think Joe has either.  M.D. and J got us a gift certificate for there when I was first diagnosed.  I just haven’t been well enough to go.  Well we are going tonight because I feel good and I don’t start chemo again till Thurs.  And radiation starts Tues.  So I’m taking advantage of this little window of “I feel good” time.

Saturday is a do-nothing day.  Joe wants to futz in the garage and on his Car.  I’m going to get some herbs and get them planted.  And maybe a couple of perennials for the front yard.  Joe has it looking so nice with all the cedar chips he put down, it’s just begging for little splashes of color. 

Sunday is going to be a great day again.  Going to St. Anne’s in Detroit for noon mass, then to M.D.’s for a cookout.  I wonder if she has a frisbee??  I’m in the mood to play, nicely, not slaughterhouse frisbee.

Well Mom is off to a Graduation so I have the house to myself for a while.  I think I’ll go try on dresses for tonite.  I hope they still fit.

Love and huggs to everyone.
