On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

My broken life

Yesterday I was whining about the broken printer and today I came home to a broken dishwasher.  I was happily ensconced in Juvenile Hall, drawing with the boys and chatting with the girls but when I got home Steve was hand washing an enormous load of dishes in the sink.  (He's a good man.)  I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring!

When consternation hits it's best to just slink off, curl up on the sofa and escape into Words With Friends.  Fortunately I had a list of players waiting for me to take my turn, so I had a long session to cool my jets.  I rarely win, but I sure enjoy the game!


  1. I just got a new washing machine and my daughter a new dishwasher. Evidently nothing is lasting like it "used to" or did it ever truly last anyhow?

  2. Yes! There was a fix-it mentality and things were made that could be repaired. Planned obsolescence wasn't part of the equation when I was a kid.
