Favorite Bathrooms

  • Home Sweet Home
  • When I'm @ someones house: the one farthest away from the crowd
  • @ the Mall: Macy's (as public bathrooms go this one is very nice)
  • If I can't make it to Macy's...JC Penney's will have to do (they recently remodeled so it is better than it was. I don't know why they didn't ask for my input???)
  • Monterey Bay Fish Grotto in Monroeville has a great bathroom
  • Ponte Vedra Inn and Club, My fav place to vacation, their rooms have the most wonderful bathrooms

Yet Another Crappy Day!!!

Yes...another crappy day...blah. I really should not complain because my crohns beast has been very well behaved lately and this crappy day probably has more to do with the nasty bug I've come down with...sore throat, runny nose, aches, and yes the big D. We had a wonderful family celebration on November 6th and someone must have shared more than their love. As a result many of us are now sick. Since I do not have to watch Gi today (I am honored to be her Nanny now that her mommy is back to work)and it is a rainy fall day I have been hanging out on the couch most of the day. In between loads of laundry that is. I'm drinking lots of tea with honey and of course my favorite comfort food toast with jam. yum!

A couple weeks ago we went to Schramms Farm and Orchards where I purchased some jams and a jar of apple butter. I finished up the blueberry fruit spread and started the apple butter. Warm buttered toast with apple good.

I love going to Schramms in the fall. The little store there sells so many wonderful things. I always buy some honey when I'm there and I can't leave without some baked goodies...and then there are the pumpkins...

Fun stuff for the kids too...

...and P and Gi didn't even mind that we got lost on the way home

Love, Laugh, and always know where the nearest bathroom is

A hug from my doctor

Well here it is November and like always I am not even ready to think about the holidays and all that needs to be done. I am happy to say that my living room and dining room make over (hahaha that sounds so simple) is complete...YAY. I love the results and I'm having fun decorating. I was able to get some fall decorating in and I'm looking forward to decorating for Christmas. While all those ideas bounce around in my head I haven't any ideas about gifts this year...I better start shopping soon or I'll be going crazy at the last min.

I went to see my GI doc last month. My first time since my cancer surgery and treatment. I was happy to report to my doc that my Crohns beast has been very well behaved and dare I say better then pre cancer treatment. I think the chemo put it in its place (for a while anyway). My doc is so wonderful. At the end of my appointment he gave me a big hug and told me how glad he was to see how well I'm doing after the cancer treatment. He even got chocked up. He's the best.

Of course I was given my yearly to do list of blood work and tests that need done and doctors that need seen :( I went right away and got all my blood work...I haven't scheduled anything else yet...shame on me. Next week I promise.

BTW I am one year cancer free as of October 22nd Woo Hoo! Check out my other blog to see a few pics from the past year.

Love, laugh, and always know where the nearest bathroom is
