Things that make me go Hmmmm?

Why is every activity for adults [fun thing] and wine? I'd love to paint and cook and craft, but I don't like wine. I don't want to pay for the wine and not drink it. I don't want to get the "WTF is wrong with her" looks when I'm the only one not chugging wine.... Continue Reading →

Late to the Party – starting D&D at 50

My son is pissed. "MOM. I tried for YEARS to get you to play D&D, and you wait until I move to New York to start playing?!" "Well," I explained. "I thought it was math. All those dice and hit points and stuff just didn't sound like fun." (Look, I'm a super lib flaming feminist,... Continue Reading →

A letter to my dead father

Dear Dad, Intellectually, I knew you were mortal. And your health hasn't been good for several years. It all started to go to shit when you slipped on the stairs and broke your leg. After that was a 5-way heart bypass. You never really came back from that. Though your scars healed and your cardiologist... Continue Reading →

How a lame comment and a case of mistaken identity torpedoed my job search

I didn’t always say everything that popped into my head.

Where I became the smallest, youngest child in the class with the bonus of... Continue Reading →

What’d I do?” Treatment begins in early May and concludes in late December. Start the new year clean, you think. Through it all... Continue Reading →

Sometimes I miss cancer.

Are you surprised? I am. Après cancer is a series of milestones. One year since my first chemo! One year since my last chemo! I have come to the conclusion that my cancer-free status dates from my lumpectomy, when Doctor Superman removed those bad lymph nodes and the clip to show where Turdy once lay... Continue Reading →

Now accepting new clients

We took a couple-few years off to write novels (and were pretty prolific), but we’re ready to get back in the game. You need words? We got ’em. Words to describe your product or service… Source: Now accepting new clients

Cancer Slayer: Post Script

Yesterday I had surgery to remove the medi-port that was installed a year ago ahead of chemo. Since then I've had six rounds of chemo, multiple echocardiograms, 11 infusions of Herceptin, a lumpectomy and lymphnode takey-outy, 30 sessions of radiation, a bone density test, I don't remember how many MRIs and blood tests and zillions...
