• 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.

Some of My Favorite Quotes


After complaining to Danny that I had a headache…
Danny: “I get a headache when I have a fever.” Taps top of his head, “Fevers make my head hurt right here in my imagination.”



Danny:  “Mom… why don’t you just be free.”
Me: “Wha? Um… ok.”
Danny:  “Yeah. Just let freedom reign.”



Danny (in very stern voice): “DON’T pick me up like that!”
Dad: “Why not?”
Danny: “Well, because I don’t have hydraulics!”



While listening to Christmas music…

Danny:  “What is ‘Lord’?”

Me:  “Another name for God.”

Danny: “What is ‘Christ’?”

Me: “Another name for Jesus.”

Danny: “What is ‘IHOP’?”


October 2010

Danny: “Everyone should call me “Mr. Hullabaloo Big Ta Do Excitement”.



Danny while sitting on my lap feeling the crease of my curled up leg:  “Is this a butt?”


Stopped to talk to a woman taking donations for her Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in front of Wal Mart.  She began to hand me a pamphlet on Inflammatory Breast Cancer.

Me:  “Who had IBC?”

Her:  “My mother.”

Me:  “So did I!”

Her (with a stricken/shocked look on her face):  “I’ve never met a survivor!”



Danny:  “When I go to Heaven I don’t want God and Jesus to see me frow up.”



I was getting ready to head out on a (hopefully) mood-changing stroll while fending off Danny’s incessant questions.  When I explained that I was in a very grumpy mood he asked why.  I told him that his yelling, arguing and constantly telling me “no” made me unhappy which made me grumpy.

He replied, “Maybe you shouldn’t let me do that.”
