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.

Oh Christmas Tree

Not long ago my brother-in-law was talking about how when you really think about it, a lot of our Christmas traditions could have been started by a group of drunkards. "Hey, I have an idea, let's cut down a tree and bring it inside! We'll put lights on it and hang stuff off the branches. It'll be great." Or, "Hey, let's hang a fungus from the ceiling and make people kiss when they walk under it!" Well, drunk as the original organizers of Christmas may have been, I still love the traditions! And one of my absolute favorites is that of the Christmas tree. It brings back childhood memories, it fills my home with actual pine scent, and in the evenings, with the lights on, it warms the entire neighborhood, I'm sure of it.

This is our tree. Its prettier in person, when you can smell its scent and get up close to examine our myriad ornaments. But I thought it deserved its own place on my humble blog.

Merry Christmas, drunkards and all!

It's very pretty! Maybe you were a little drunk when you took the picture?

Which bro-in-law was that?

Lucas is the bro-in-law in question. Though it could have come from any of them I think.

It would not have come from me as I do not know or have listened to the comedian he was citing.
