  • 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.

In lieu of a resolution…

I hate resolutions. They allow no leeway and are doomed to failure. So instead I will project onto 2009 my wishes. I challenge you to do the same.

Salon.com issued a challenge for their readers to write their memoir in six words. The results were wonderful and ingenious. One that could also be my memoir is from reader Jared2:

“Broke. Payday. Broke. Payday. Broke. Payday … “ Jared2

A couple other samples:

“Current lawyer, aspiring writer, often silly.” Jenbynight

“Too much hair, then not enough.” Burstoflethargy

The Challenge
1. Write your memoir in six words. Or, if you’re feeling less expansive, just sum up 2008.
2. Use six words to sum up your wishes for 2009.
3. Link to this blog in your post.
4. Tag as many or as few people as you wish. No pressure here. List them in your post.

My memoir:
Boobies; breasts; tube socks; tumor; Bellyboob.

Work and pay; hope and pray.
My Wishes for 2009 are not very original but truly heartfelt:
More money; less debt; universal health.

I am going to tag:

May you and yours have a successful, safe and healthy 2009!
