haiku friday

christmas trees, reindeer,
presents, shopping, buying stuff.
also, christmas cards.

good red wine to drink,
delicious dips to consume.
also, christmas sweets.

peace and good tidings,
love, laughter and light to you 
during christmas time.

Numbers - the medical edition

2017 was the year for using my health benefits at my job. Let's review, shall we?

  • I had two surgeries. Totaling 11 hours under anesthesia. 
  • I got two boobs removed, and two new ones put in.
  • I was on antibiotics five different times, totaling 12 weeks.
  • I took off 5 weeks from work, one time using disability and another just sick days. 
  • I had at least 25 doctor appointments.
  • I had two surgeons, one primary care doctor, one gynecologist, one oncologist, one infectious disease doctor and a partridge in a pear tree.
  • I had five biopsies, two MRIS and countless ultrasounds and mammograms.
And with that, I think we can close out the year, don't you?

Christmasy Fun

Just a few pics 

from the last few days 

of my kiddos 

being all festive 

yesterday we played hooky and took the girls to meet santa 

joze asked for a dolphin, sash for a jetpack. 

then we went to islands! 

sash was chosen to do a dance this morning because she is a good citizen at school. i love her.

I'm back

I'm back, ya'all!

I am so tired, but I am back. 

I am completely drowning in the amount of work that has piled up in the last week. So much email!

But I will share thoughts and photos stories and pictures soon! 

For now, these adorable girls. Josie cracks me up.

Get well soon pics


Cake from one of Adriana's friends. 



NYC Subway Puzzle 


Laying on the couch Sunday afternoon watching cartoons.

Josie with my ice pack.

I am once again resting after surgery. This year has been a beast! 

But I feel great and I am just taking it easy. I should be back to work on Monday and hopefully can put all this behind me. 

These pics are from the past three or four days. My parents came up and Auntie Ang to help with the girls. Babe and Adriana are taking care of me. 

I am doing puzzles and drinking water.

I will say this. I can't believe people do this surgery electively. I would never put myself under the knife by choice. People be crazy!

Haiku Friday

resting so much now
Laying on the couch all sore
From my surgery.

What a year it’s been.
So many doctor visits
Since February.

I feel kinda high.
Just laying on the couch and
Watching my wee fam.

haiku friday

i dreamt i smoked a 
cigarette! and i felt so
guilty but also

so happy to smoke.

have a little fun

without harming our
health. or dealing with ire 
from friends, family.

Misc. Items, but with pictures

Adriana got a new iPhone and now her pictures look totally professional. 

Look at this baby model!! 



Joze was sad this morning because I wouldn't let her have any candy or watch something on TV, I don't remember so she sat down by the couch. I handed her a balloon because its funny to be sad while holding a balloon. 

These are the neat flowers my coworker put together for my beeday party! I love them.
