What’s In Your Bag?

  2012 was an interesting year for me, to say the least. I really took a beating health wise. But it wasn’t all bad. Let’s recap. Shall we? In January, my dearest friend “Melody” was forced to climb Broke Box Mountain. And quite frankly, I hope she never has to climb that mountain, ever again. […]

NaBloPoMo | Day 28: Seasons Greetings

Um… You know you spend a LOT of time at the hospital when they start sending you CHRISTMAS CARDS instead of just the usual bills. I’m not even kidding, y’all.

NaBloPoMo | Day 19: Full Body Scan

“The technician missed her vein! The injection didn’t go into her blood stream! Page Dr. Lizensczhacts! STAT!” The flustered nurse screamed across the Emergency Room.
