My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

things i learned traveling to florida

1. When tired enough, it is possible to sleep sitting straight up, squashed between two strangers, for a full five hours.
2. Orlando has a very nice airport.
3. Though the weather is disgustingly hot and humid, and often makes you want to jump into any nearby body of water regardless of the alligators that might dwell there, its great for the skin.
4. DisneyWorld could quite possibly be better than Disneyland.
5. It is possible to enjoy the sunrise on the east coast, then drive to the west coast and watch the sun set. Its called the "sunrise/sunset" tour, and we agreed would be a great tour on which to be proposed to.
6. Its hard to keep your directional bearings in a completely flat state. (Florida's highest point is just over 300 feet above sea level.)
7. Therefore its important to bring a map when traveling to new and different places.
8. However, if you DO get lost, there are countless book stores, gas stations and convenience shops to stop for directions or to check out a map. (Just be mindful of shady characters.)
9. The heat and humidity is just as bad on the beach as it is inland.
10. Thunderclouds make for beautiful sunsets.
11. Hammocks are a wonderful way to relax.
12. Vacations should always last at least four days.
13. Catching up with old friends can be sweet music to the soul.
14. 130 pounds makes for a really big Labrador.
15. Dark chocolate ice cream tastes great with peanut butter cups and Nestle crunch mixed in.
16. Air conditioning was one of the finest inventions of all time.
17. Coming home after being away is ALSO sweet music to the soul.
