Happy New Year!

Happy 2014

A new year!  Fantastic!  I’m looking forward to a fabulous year.  I’m taking on this year with a serious amount of positive energy and I’m not looking back.  I’m working on an extensive TO DO LIST for this year and the main theme of the list is HAPPINESS.  I’m no longer wasting time on things that stress me out or make me feel bad.  Life is way too short!  Let’s make this a great year!  Are you making a POSITIVE TO DO LIST for yourself?  I think you should.



Sunday evening rambles

I’m tired.  I did too much this weekend and I’m paying for it.  You would think I would learn by now but I haven’t.  If you were wondering, cancer still sucks.  On the bright side, I have my second to last chemo this Wednesday. Whoop!

I’m preparing a blog schedule so I can keep up with what I thought would be a daily process.  My chemo brain needs a written schedule since apparently I can’t remember a damn thing.  The fact that I’m even thinking about a schedule is a step in the right direction.

Little things can make me so happy.  One of the goals I try to accomplish each day is to stop and be thankful for all the little happy things that make up my life.  Even though cancer sucks, I still have so much to be happy about in life…

  • Watching Aggie football.
  • Holding hands with Hubs.
  • Snuggling with Bean in the morning.
  • Taking my first photography class.

Hope all is well in your world. Have a great week!




Hug Your Librarian


I spent most of the day today volunteering in Bean’s school library.  Over the summer, termites were discovered in the library so all the books had to be moved to the cafeteria.  Yikes!  Now, all the books have to be moved back into the library and properly shelved.  Also, all the other tasks that would have normally been done over the summer need to be done……organizing, preparing for new students, inventory and many other things.  I was amazed at the amount of times a new book has to be touched just to get it placed on the shelf for the first time.  I guess my point is the school librarian is BUSY!  The librarian doesn’t just shelve books and read to the kids.  If you have the chance to volunteer in your child’s school library, I guarantee you the librarian will be thankful for the help.

Sunday evening rambles

If I’m going to continue on this daily process (or at least somewhat daily), I need to come up with a schedule.  I’m currently in the process of writing my story up until now but that is for a future post.  I’ll make a LIST!  I’m sure that will solve all my problems — {sarcasm font}.

Tomorrow I will work on more technical aspects of the blog that I obviously need to learn and come up with some sort of schedule.  This blog may never be exciting but it is definitely going to get much better……hopefully soon!
