Food choices

I find that I approach live one day at a time.  As  a result I have inadvertently forgotten things that need to be done until the last minute. Take today for instance.  I have a PET scan scheduled for Friday.  I vaguely recall the scheduler telling me that I needed to follow a low carb…

Pokemon and other news

Pokemon Go’s combat technique confounds me.  I made my first visit to a gym yesterday and got crushed.  Luckily it was a Team Mystic gym, so there was no real damage done to my pokemon. In other news, I had my MRI on Saturday and am waiting for results.  I have an appointment on Friday…

Gotta catch em all

In all seriousness, I want to thank the folks at Niantic for their timing.  They released Pokemon Go! last Thursday.  I know have something that I can do that gets me moving and distracts me from my cancer diagnosis. I currently have 35 critters in my pokedex. I am level 10 and have not yet…

Signs

You know your day is going to be bad when someone from your doctor’s office calls at 8:30 am saying that the doctor wants to see you at 5:30 pm. It’s especially bad when that doctor is your oncologist.

Random Update Follow Up

Biopsy results are in.  It’s cancer.  Definitely. I’m not making this up.  There’s another appointment with the doctor this afternoon.  At that time I’ll learn whether it’s a recurrence of breast cancer or if it’s some sort of lymphoma. 2016 is definitely not my favorite year by far.

Random Update

My holiday weekend has started with a fine needle biopsy of one of my axial lymph nodes.  How’s your day going?

Gamingpalooza

It’s Wednesday, which means I’m between gaming events.  Last weekend it was Origins Game Fair.  This weekend is JAFAX. Origins was fabulous as always.  I truly enjoy my time there; I also am thrilled that I did not get sick of any of the games that I taught. This weekend, Turbo and I are running…

Origins 2016

Heading out to Origins Game Fair after work today.  I’m super excited! I even colored my hair for the occasion.  

Imperial Assault-ing

One of the games that we play fairly regularly is Imperial Assault by Fantasy Flight.  The latest campaign had me at the helm as the Imperial player.  We’re playing the Twin Shadows mini-campaign. It’s not going well for the Empire. Case in point:  last night’s scenario.  It needed 8 rounds to complete, or else the…

Get your motor running

I have a motorcycle.  It’s not anything huge or spectacular; it is, in fact, a 1992 600cc Honda Shadow.  It’s a great starter bike.  I would love to move past the starter bike stage, but that involves money that I have earmarked for other things (food, mortgage, you know – frivolous stuff like that.)  Therefore,…

Up by my bootstraps

I’ve reached another point in my life where I’m not so happy with the way I look and feel.  I’m not obese, but I am a good 15 pounds over my ideal weight. I have to get my butt into gear and start exercising and eating right again.  The latter is made more difficult by…

For love of the vine

We have a friend who makes her own wine.  Last night, she had her spring tasting which doubled as a moving sale (they are relocating to some waterfront property.) We got there first and we had a lot of time to add to her tasting notes and talk about her future wine making plans.  The…
