It is Time to ROCK!

Kiss Kitty!!!

Kiss Kitty!!!

How Cool Is She??!! She is SUPER COOL!!!! Big shout out to Tracy K. When The Boy and I opened the package and saw what it was, we both started yelling. So cool. Plus anything Hello Kitty rocks.

This morning is starting out better than last. I was able to take a nap yesterday and take some NyQuil last night, so I got some rest. Still woke up with an aching jaw and sore throat but the cough, knock on wood, has not been too bad. I don’t know if I have mentioned this before, but the coughing has nothing to do with a cold or being sick. The doctor thinks it has to with the tumor pushing up against my trachea. So if the cough is bad, the tumor is pushing against it. If is isn’t bad, as in I am not coughing as much, it isn’t pushing up against it. And one reason for it not pushing up against it is that is getting smaller. And that folks is what we want to happen! Keep those fingers and toes crossed!

Going to play it smart today and not go crazy. I do have two places I would like to go to today both very quick visits. The rest of the day will be me at home working, resting and doing some laundry. I need more PJ pants!

That is all for now. Now Readers, being like Hello Kitty and go out and ROCK!!!

Monday, Monday…

Note to self, do not write that you aren’t feeling well on FB. You will send your mom into a panic. Truth is, I did feel like shit. My head ached, my jaw ached, I have my first mouth sore, my throat was sore and I have this dam cough (caused by the tumor). Although I was able to sleep thanks to some NyQuil, it wasn’t a very restful one. However after gargling with hydrogen peroxide, taking some aspirin, eating, taking a shower, drinking a protein drink (thanks Gerri) and then taking some Mucinex, I feel better. I do want to thank everyone who was worried, it was me just being pitiful. Sorry Mom. :)

My goal today was to go into to the office to do some work. However at 10am I got a call from The Boy’s Camp telling me that he wasn’t feeling all that good. Wonderful. I got him on the phone and he didn’t sound his usual self and the counselor agreed. So off Timber and I went to pick the boy up. We then had some stops to make. My office, Publix, the bank and Petco.

By the time we got home I was sweating something fierce and was ready for lunch and my bed. After eating and resting, Timber and I went out to check on the girls and play some ball. The key to playing ball with Timber is bring 2 balls. I stand in the shade and throw one and he will bring it back, drop it and then I throw the other one. It worked out great and didn’t tire me out. In fact he was the one who called it quits. He is now sitting in front of my desk panting like crazy. Someone got a good work out!

Last night I updated the blog a bit. There is now a page labeled Is There a Hotel Yorba? It tells about the hotel and why I have chosen to name my blog after it. Check it Out! Also, if you have or know someone who has a product/item/book they want someone to review, please send them my way! I would love to do some more reviews one items that my readers want to read about! You can contact me at

I really want to make this blog a place where people can share stories, ideas, products etc. To do that, I need your help! So help a girl out. Cause really, I have cancer….AGAIN! :)

Hi Ya’ll

I hope you are having a great summer. It has been very raining here in the ATL so we have not had much time to enjoy the pool renovations we had done in May. But it sure looks pretty (from our kitchen window while it is pouring down rain).

I know I have been AWOL for a while and there is a reason. Right after My Man and I got back from our wonderful trip to Quebec City, I found out my cancer had come back. The last three weeks have been spent going to doctors, having CT scans and a biopsy done. It has been a rollercoaster of emotions for me, My Man and The Boy. I will learn more on Thursday but chemo is in my future. Not sure about radiation. At this point I am just ready to get a plan in place and start treatment.

I will be updating my progress here on the blog. If you have any questions please ask them here. I may have questions myself for you! I have never gone through chemo or radiation and am not sure what to expect. I do have many friends who have, so they will be a big help but I could use all the advice I can get!

In other news….My brother and his family are coming into town today. Looking forward to seeing them!
