But in the end we all come from what’s come before.
My son forgot to take his humorous calendar with him from the office, but it seems like it knows us. Every month, there are funny sayings (instead of pictures) as the main page, with other funny things throughout. If you’re easily offended, skip the list below.

Life changes. All good!
The last 3 weeks have been super busy. Many, many changes are on the horizon. First, I’m done with treatment for breast cancer! I couldn’t sleep Friday night because I was so happy and excited by the news and the positive changes it brings. No more every-3-weeks Herceptin/Perjeta infusions.

The evolution of my son.
In 2014, my son Sean was in a bad relationship. It didn’t start out as bad, but it became evident rather quickly that it was heading in a bad direction. Before he met her, he really was in a good place. He had recently lost 100 pounds and had a great job. He went to… Continue reading
