And So it began

"ONCE UPON A TIME"....there came along this little lump...insignificant really when you compare it to the entire world of lumps. That is, right up to the point that it wasn't...insignificant I mean............... and so began my journey.

A NEWER SHADE OF I more then SURVIVE...I am learning to THRIVE...

OF COURSE... we all know things are bound to get a little crazy with a surprise around most every corner...not to mention an assortment of bumps and bruises along the way...but I am ever thankful for them all...they have all made me who I am. So buckle up, hold on tight and enjoy the ride thru what I lovingly refer to as LIFE

The Not so back BACKSTORY - March 2018

I CAUGHT UP!!!!  -March 2018 -
(part 1)

Okay....I actually never thought this would happen....I filled in the back story more or less...but you can't even begin to understand the weight off my chest and the incredible guilt that I have had every time I sat down at my computer to do something else.....I AM FREE!!!!   ALMOST....

- MARCH 2018 -

- Lets start this out with the MOST important day of the month...MY BIRTHDAY!!!!  It was a really great day!!!!  My day started off with my dear friend stopping by with YUMMY lemon tarts and a quick HUG!!!  The lemon squares were tartly wonderful but the hug was by far the best part. Then my other dear & oldest friend came over and kidnapped me for the afternoon. We spent a fun afternoon just "lallygagging" around then topped it off with an entire Carrot Cake.  Do these 2 girls know me or what?!?!? Thanks for making it such a fun "Mary Poppins" kind of day.

-The next day I left to continue the "GRAND BABY TOUR" across the country again to spend 6 days with THE "Empress of Awesomeness" and her brew...arriving after 1am.  I was sooooo tired going into this one but THE Empress knew that my energy was in the toilet planned just planned on me resting during the day.  She too assured me that what was important was the fact that I was there.  Back during treatment VoR had gone out to see them for a wknd and my GB made me promise that when I was better I would come see I came.  They had planned a great day to celebrate my Bday and let's be honest there are a lot worse men to spend it with then Hugh Jackman & Zac Efron singing and dancing in one of my FAV movies in a long time... "The Greatest Showman". The humour was not lost on me that Random Wisdom first crushed hard for Zac during "High School Musical" days and we would all have to agree, is still today major eye candy...but the fact that my GB is just as star struck over him because of this movie just cracks me right up!!!  But my day ended in my favourite tradition....PAVLOVA!!! If it isn't familiar to you....GOOGLE SEARCH IT!!!  That Empress soooooo knows her way around amazing desserts!!!! The perfect day with a couple of my favourite girls.  I had a fantastic time with Empress's little family.  GB is a game nut...but not just any game...NO..."Battleship" & "Bingo"....and can I just say...young minds never tire but I couldn't go non-stop.  Fortunately I had found an App before I left home so we were able to play both on the iPad so we could stop and go without worry of GB messing with the pieces. I can not even give you an estimate of just how many hours we played over those 6 days but be assured it was enough for me to be dreaming "B6, G56, I get the idea...but honestly, I was thrilled to be there with those 2 GBS it didn't matter what we did.

-I had to get up and be heading to the airport at 3:00AM!!!!  I finally got home by almost 5pm.  VoR was out of town for work so as you can imagine...I went & had a shower, made something easy to eat and plopped in front of the tv to catch up on my shows & didn't budge again for more then a couple hours.  It was nice to be home....for the 2 weeks I am gonna be here.  BTW...still got that lousy cough virus from when I got home from leg #1 of the tour...ARGGG!!!
