Our Trip To Boston For The World Series

IMG_0660

What happens when a Charger fan spends a week in Boston going from one New England sporting event to another? Oh…. I forgot the best part it was in late October and I’m a California native who never dealt with actual weather. Surprisingly, nothing except the loss of feeling in my extremities and my total amazement of their complete devotion toward their teams. It goes far beyond putting on a jersey and hooting and hollering in front of the TV. These teams are a part of the community with … [Read more...]

The Breast Cancer Walk 2013

Check out our video of team jellybean and beanhead participating in the American Breast Cancer walk. It was a picture perfect day filled with inspiration and hope. Breast cancer month is still in full swing with lots of opportunities to get involved. We would love to hear how others are fighting to find a cure... … [Read more...]

New Adventure: Pink Concert

images

  If you don’t know this about me now you do, I kind of have a little obsession with Pink!!!  Not the color, but the singer. No need for restraining orders, I have no intention of becoming a stalker. I just have always found her to be a kick ass strong woman, and I know it sounds a little strange, but I really think if we met we would become friends. This past Sunday Christina and I accomplished one of our adventures and saw Pink in concert. I was sooo excited it could have been Christmas … [Read more...]

I’m Back !!

I’m back!! And I bet some of you are wondering "where did she go"? Well, I wish I could say I was having tons of adventures, while that’s not totally untrue, I did have lots of fun traveling this summer with my husband. But, the real reason I had to check out for a while was due to antidepressants. Now, I have not in any way been shy about my struggles with menopause. I have written at length about my hot flashes, weight gain, and all the other awesome side affects. Until I found my savior … [Read more...]

She is Back !!

images

One of the worst feelings is when you want to help your best friend, make her happy, heal her pain, calm her anger, and fix the bad.... and yet you can't do any of it.  You can't do a god damned thing. It becomes especially hard when said best friend zones out into the la la land of "I'm fine, nothing is wrong" and looks at you like your crazy.  There was a moment many months ago when I felt that a crazed bird flapping around wildly "but we must travel! Adventure! We need adventure!  You … [Read more...]

To Support Group Or Not?

images

                                 Having cancer there has been a lot of things that have scared me, such as chemo, radiation, and surgery. But what really scared me was the thought of attending a support group. Now I know how funny that sounds considering all that I have listed, but you have to understand a few things about me in order for this to make any sense. First of all, I’m a social worker by trade and usually the one running a support group, not participating in one. Being the person … [Read more...]

The Different Ways We Deal With Cancer

IMG_0148

I have found it very interesting to witness how different people react to having cancer. Some folks sail away on my favorite ship “denial”, while others become vegan eating, yoga touting enthusiasts. While many yet find hope and solace in religion (even if this spirituality has never been apart of their existence before). Even more interesting is the fact that in most cases when you hear you have cancer you go a little crazy…..I include myself in this last fact. The normal consensus becomes … [Read more...]

Our Next Summer Adventure to Chicago

Wrigley_Field_August_2003_05

Our next summer adventure took us to Chicago, Illinois. The Windy City is old world architecture mixed with modern skyscrapers surrounded by charming waterways. I totally fell in love with the L train, which roars on scaffolding above the city through out most of downtown. Its rich in history, incredibly clean and well kept up for a big bustling city. We stayed in a hotel in the downtown area so everything was either walking or a short ride on the L train. Our first day started with The … [Read more...]

Menopause Is a Bitch !!

meno9

Menopause is a bitch and I believe that any woman who states otherwise is lying. I have heard of these legendary women that go through menopause without a single symptom, but I believe they are like bigfoot or the lockness monster. Tales told to keep menopausal women thinking it is all in our heads. It started out with good old hot flashes, which, if you have never experienced one is like someone setting you on fire, and putting you out….. just to set you on fire again. It’s a very sadistic … [Read more...]

First Trip of the Summer: BOSTON

downtown boston

This summer my husband and I have been vacationing fools. Our first adventure was to Boston, Massachusetts. This trip was totally spur of the moment. The thing you must understand is that I’m married to a masshole. For those of you that have never heard this term, it refers to people from Massachusetts that are completely consumed with Boston sports. They will not miss a Red Socks, Patriots, or Celtics game even if there life depended on it. They can be spotted in a crowed due to the intensity … [Read more...]
