Tia you crack me up!!!!!


ps YES I did have junk yesterday and it was really good. Tom, my bro-in-law brought Linda and I cheese and caramel corn popcorn fron Nuts on Clark and YES is is good and YES I did hide it from my boys! So YES I did have something healthy and something that I would not classify as junk becase it tasted soo good!

Guilty as Charged (but just a little....)

OK, so YES I did need a Portillo's Chopped Salad yesterday, and YES you did have chemo yesterday, and YES you normally fill up on junk so I thought a nice salad would balance things out. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it! ha ha

Hope your day today is going great and your salad made you feel full of energy!


re: the quote I just should say:

Hootie Hoo! What a Ride! (Karen's saying)

Chemo Factory

Linda and I wanted to go through the"drive thru" for chemo yesterday but no go...Great nurses- Linda brought them her special Milky Way Rice Krispie treats. Even Nurse Ratchet stopped by and tried to be pleasant.... The nurses were really on top of things and it seemed to go a little quicker.

Had a great surprise during chemo- Lynn B stopped by with her homemade ham and cheese mini sandwiches (yum) and her "reserved for kids only Rolly Pollies"!!!! She even let Dr. Kash have one! He had already had a Jimmy John's but he was eyeing those sandwiches! Get this- Lynn got up really early- and baked. Wow what a friend!

Now get this one- Tia seemed to have a real hankering for a Portillo's Chopped Salad....I think she kinda, a little- used Linda and I as her reasoning....and picked up three salads and what a great dinner I had! With great friends like this- and all the ones bringing over meals- I am going to gain a lot of pounds. Won't be able wear the thong bikini in FL at the end of May.... (HA!)

I have a great quote to share with you.....I got it off an email at COD and just changed one thing.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "Woo Hoo!! What a ride!"<

I added the beer......
