A little of this, A little of that….

Simon and me


How are you? Snowed in? If you live in the north-east of the US, I feel for you. How you deal with all the snow is beyond me. Two and half inches are all I can handle. I wanted to update you all on what is going on at My Hotel Yorba. After being snowed in for four days and the boy missing three days of school, we are off to FL! We will be gone for a few days and I will not be updating the blog. I just didn’t want you all to worry.

I got a Fitbit Force over the weekend. So far I have really liked it. I had the Nike fuel band and ended up giving it to The Boy. He is having a blast tracking how many steps he is taking and calories he is burning. (Please note, The Boy has no weight to lose. He is skin in bones but he likes to see it anyway).

I am looking forward to seeing all the steps I walk on our vaycay. The only issue I have had so far is that it is kind of hard to snap on. It has been getting easier each day but that first time was very frustrating. One thing I really like is that is tracks your sleep pattern. I have been waking up a lot during the night (I think I know why) so it is cool to see charted out.


When we get back I have a lot to do. I have a few doctors I really need to go see. I am ready to get this port out. It has been nice but it is time to go! I need to know for sure why I am waking up in the middle of the night and having hot flashes. Yes, a side effect of the chemo! Oh YEAH! Good thing we planned only on having the The Boy….no The Girl or The Boy #2 in the future. Have I mentioned how much cancer sucks??

What I am Watching


I am on episode 2, season 5 of Breaking Bad. So Good. Mr. White has become a dick and poor Jesse Pinkman and his face. Always getting the shit beaten out of him.


Downton Abbey- Mr. Bates and Anna. Can’t they just be happy?


Sherlock Holmes (PBS)- Such a good show. If you don’t watch you need to start now. You can go onto the PBS website or download the app and watch there. I also watch the CBS version, Elementary, and I love that show too. I really like it when he takes his shirt off. :)


Before I sign off for a few days, I have a BIG SHOUT OUT to a friend, reader and cancer kick-asser (my spell check says that is not a word but whatever) Tammy J. Tammy J is being zapped now. She is a few sessions in and I think she is doing WONDERFUL! She has been fighting crappy cancer for about as long as I have. She should be done with her treatment in March, so keep her in your thoughts. In May, when I turn 41, she will be getting new boobies. New Boobies people!! I want new boobies for my birthday!! So, so, jealous……  —You must look for that sliver lining, no matter how hard it may be to find. Keeping fighting the fight Tammy J! I am thinking of you!

Have a wonderful week. I will post pictures from our trip soon. Be safe, Stay warm!

  1. I’m with you on the hot flashes/waking in the middle of the night. You’re not alone in that. Thinking of you – have a great trip!

  2. Have fun on your vacation, the weather will be warm in Nassau and other stops. I agree with you on the two Sherlock’s, totally different from each other both rock. Downton Abbey I have not watch it this season Dad has but I am sick of both Above and Below the stairs. Will these people ever be happy? I am thinking of you with hot flashes and waking up in the middle of the night I to have been there but not because of chemo. Love you lots,lots,lots, Momee

  3. And all this time I thought it was the two glasses of red wine that was waking me up at 1:00 AM sweating. I’ve been living my live in a constant state of illusions.

    Then Bob Dylan tells me this week that cars are made in the United States, has that what he’s been saying all these years and I didn’t understand a word.

    Life is becoming so clear!
