Thank you, Charles M. Schulz Stick a fork in me, I’m DONE!!!!!! Yes, today was my fourth and final chemo session.

Three of Four!!! I only have one session left. So today, I decided to once again go in full warpaint and body armor. Today’s dress is from my BFAM Emmett. I wore his “Farrah” dress, fishnets and my Stuart Weitzman sand suede pumps. Fierce!. To top it off, I wore a necklace I inherited from … Continue reading Cancer, Chemo and What I Wore Part 3
Fabulosity abounds, even during tough times… Today was my second treatment. The leadup to it was nowhere near as excruciating as the first one. I knew what to expect. I still slept pretty poorly last night and I’m paying the price, but it’ll be okay. But before I tell you about that, let me tell … Continue reading Cancer, Chemo and What I Wore Part 2

Wow – how time has flown! 6 Years Ago I woke up to a whole new, strange and scary world. At least it was strange and scary at first. Then it became less scary, thank God, though it never became less strange. My red hair fell out. My white hair grew back. I said goodbye … Continue reading Was It Really 6 Years Ago?
I don’t post about business too often here – well, directly anyway – and I almost never talk about personal issues in my business emails and communications, but today I am happy to make an exception. Many of you know that I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December, 2009. I blogged about my experiences … Continue reading A Special Coupon for a Very Special Reason
Today is April 15th. That means several things. First, It’s Tax Day in the US. Every year on April 15, post offices remain open til midnight, procrastinators burn the midnight oil.
