• The boys and I

  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

Happy New Year v.2008

I am playing along on a universal meme from Sherry of Sage and Thyme. I really like the subject matter.

Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

  • Share 5 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog. or
  • Share the 5 top places on your “want to see or want to see again” list. or
  • Share 5 things you never pictured being in your future when your were 25 years old.

Tag a minimum of 5, maximum of 10 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

The tagees have a choice of which they want to do.



1. Africa~ I have always wanted to go. I want to see the animals migrate on the Serengeti.
2. Yosemite~ Daddy-O and I have never been and it’s virtually in our backyard. It’s shameful.
3. Great Britain~ The history, the architecture, the warm beer (not so much).
4. Egypt/Israel~ The great pyramids, to experience the Bible “on location”…
5. New Orleans~ pre-Katrina. alas, not in my lifetime, I fear.


1. Breast cancer~ I put too much stock in my family history
2. Being married to Daddy-O but still being great friends with the man I dated at 25 (& his wife).
3. Having a handicapped child. I thought life would be perfect, of course.
4. Working for the government for almost 18 years and counting.
5. The role the Internet would play in my life.

I would like to tag Susan, Kim, Sarah, Canape, and well, I don’t know any other bloggers well enough to tag them. Somehow it feels all impositioning and such.


In other news, we had a bit of a rager here last night. There was copious amounts of alcohol consumption (I made my first Chocolatinis) and much partner groping. Generally, a good time was had by all. As proof I submit these photos into evidence.

Welcome 2008!
