Cancer Sucks!

One Small Change Challenge: Step #3 - taking accountability for my inaction(s).

I'm very excited to be partnering with the good folks over at Puritan's Pride in accepting their One Small Change challenge: to make one very personal (yet simple) change toward healthier living and then committing myself to remain accountable by posting my progress in a three-part blog series, throughout the month. In my first post (Step #1 - The Brain Dump), I started by cleaning out the most cluttered area in the house, my head. In my second post (Step #2 - Permission To Take a Break), I recorded a couple of break-reminders and set them as notifications, throughout the day. Finishing up this blog series, I was really hoping to share with you some awesome progress in meeting my goals of walking every day and to make time to do things that quiet the mind...but, I can't...not exactly, anyway.

Pledge to Help #FinishTheFight Against Cancer

Disclosure: with many thanks to the American Cancer Society for sponsoring and compensating my writing about ways in which we can help give cancer the virtual bitchslap it deserves! I love this picture of my twin brother and me: it was our birthday (yesterday!) and this is where I would joke about our age, insisting that we were actually celebrating another anniversary of our 29th birthday. I've never been very comfortable with numbers, most especially when used as the "only" tool in defining a person's worth, but today I am putting all thoughts of vanity aside and outing myself: I've had the privilege of celebrating 49 birthdays with my brother, Steve: and I have pledged to do my best in helping to make sure more folks get the chance to do the same, by helping to give cancer the virtual bitchslap it deserves! The American Cancer Society is celebrating their... Read more →

Share Your Life List & Give Cancer A Virtual Bitchslap!

You like? I made this life list, myself, with many thanks to the American Cancer Society for sponsoring and compensating my writing about ways in which we can help give cancer the virtual bitchslap it deserves! The American Cancer Society is celebrating their 100th birthday this month (5/22/13) and, in honor of the many brave battles being fought (and/or lost) by way too many of my family and friends, I have the extreme privilege of partnering with the ACS in helping to amplify their most recent effort in helping us to celebrate MORE of life's special moments, like: More proud accomplishments: seriously, why does this one have to be so gosh-darned difficult for some of us?!? Brag on yourself, your kids, your friends, your dog, the cat, whatever or whoever makes you happy...g'head, I dare you...life is too short to not partake in a little tribulation, right?!? More dreams come... Read more →

For @WhyMommy: Give Cancer the Virtual Bitchslap it Deserves!

Crickett's Answer for Cancer, a Breast Cancer Nonprofit, is supporting women w/breast cancer by providing wigs, mastectomy products, & pampering services. Learn more via Facebook I bitch about the weather -- more specifically, how some folks STILL haven't shoveled their sidewalks, 2 weeks and 2 snowstorms post Snowmaggedon '10 -- or, how my kids insist on getting sick, 3 days apart, instead of ALL at once, since Christmas Day. Because, I can and better out than in, right? Then, someone I care about, or has impacted my life in some positive way, experiences some serious suckage and, well, DAMMIT! I'm talking the sort of suckage that leeches its way under your skin, squeezes your heart, melts all the soft squishy parts, rips through your soul and leaves an unidentifiable pile of sludge, in its wake, before the day even begins and, well, these first world problems of mine begin to...
