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.

Another day in paradise.

Chemo yesterday was tough.  They gave me a new anti-nausea drug that set my lady parts on fire.  Was not a comfortable hour.  Came home and was so glad that I had pre-cooked the chicken for the Mole’.  Just had to heat it up, make some spanish rice and beans, heat tortillas and dinner was done in under 20 minutes.  Monday night I baked an apple pie and cut up a watermelon and a brick of cheese for people to munch on if I’m feeling out of it.

After six years of this shit, I’m becoming, finally, more proactive.  Ordering my scripts ahead of time.  Pre-planning meals and having them cooked and ready.  Fresh sheets on the bed the morning of, just in case I want to lay down after (plus, clean sheet night is always a bonus).


I’m working today on getting some cards sent out to friends and relations that I think of often.  I love getting cards from people, so in turn, I love sending them.  I got one yesterday that was so special.  Several months ago, one of Joe’s cousins came in from Washington State for a visit.  While we were there her brother took a photo of us.  She sent me a copy and what a lovely photo it is.  We all look so grown up and wise.  We have all gone through so much in our young lives to create the strong, intelligent women standing there.


Finally found the graphics for my next tat.  Isn’t he impressive?  Now to find an artist who can do him justice. I think I’m going to pull some steaks out of the freezer for dinner.  Slice up some potatoes and make a vegetable and a salad and call it dinner.  Right now, I’m going to try to get my husband out for a walk and maybe get out of the house for a while. Have an amazing evening all.

Life in the slow lane

Okay so this is like the third try my new iPod to do a log update.

Life has been a huge see-saw this week. Had chemo on Tues and that kicked my ass for a couple of days. I slept for a solid two days.

Thurs dawned bright and clear, 91 degrees and sunny. Joe and I took full advantage and did some running around. Took Oscar to get his nails done. Ran a couple errands stocks that we had to, you know just the basics, and we went to Best Buy. Joe got me my new iPad. I am so lucky to have someone who thinks of me. I’m loving this thing. The apps are amazing.

I even felt good enough to make Chicken mole’ for dinner. Just Joes pieces of course. Spanish rice and beans completed the meal. It was so good. I think I finally have my Spanish rice down pat. Takes patience, but so worth it.

Yesterday was C/T day that was not a fun day. Had to drink 32 ounces of goop first thing in the morning on an empty stomach always makes a good day. That started at 8 AM drinking yeah. CAT scan was at 11 home by 11:30 I think I slept solid till six pm. Yeah, yesterday was a not a good day for Brenda.

Today is a bit gloomy outside and that always affects my moods. Joe and I are off to Art Vans to look for office furniture for him. I’m getting up the energy, because I know as soon as I get in the car, he will try to sneek in a few extra stops. That’s ok cause we always have a hidden agenda or two.

Today actually turned out to be really nice. I’m going to fire up the grill and make dinner.

Have a smacking good day everyone. If you read this, please take a second to say Hi in the comments. Give me a link back. I’ll visit.

Hugs B
