I've taken some time off from the blog,
but it's not because I haven't been feeling well, it's because I am so
busy I don't have the time or energy to think. I have been feeling
great, other than my seasonal allergy, which is extremely bad this
I really enjoyed this weekend, especially the part where I got to sleep in and didn't have to be anywhere. For the past week, I have been going to UCLA Medical Center where I am undergoing my radiation treatments. Unlike chemo, they are quick, don't really hurt and have few side effects. It is a pain to go every day except the weekends, but if you have breast cancer, you don't call the shots.
I have been white knuckling this and I haven't even googled radiation once to find out the harm it is doing to my body. Or the odds of my cancer coming back. When you have cancer, you learn not to plan ahead.
I saw the movie Date Night tonight and it was by far, one of the worst movies I have ever been forced to sit through. I would almost rather watch an hour of Glenn Beck, it was that bad. I love Tina Fey and Steve Carell, so I thought it was a no brainer. Forget it. No chemistry, no funny lines, an incredibly stupid car chase and a gigantic waste of talent. Not to mention a preposterous plot. What a waste of two accomplished, professional, funny people. My two favorite sitcom pals, have really let me down. I can honestly say there are way more laughs on an episode of The Office or 30 Rock, than in the whole movie. If you make it through to the end, the outtakes are pretty funny.
Who would have thought that I would enjoy How to Train Your Dragon, way more than Date Night? I went on a whim with a friend and her two boys, and I think the adults enjoyed it more than the kids. I also know that I am really getting into 3D and could sit through almost anything that requires glasses. Maybe that is the problem withDate Night. It should have been in 3D. I don't think even that would have helped it.
My friends and I had an impromptu pasta party tonight. It's a little more difficult, but way better than anything you get in a box. I just recently got a pasta maker, and I have been experimenting with different recipes. It's really a lot of fun, but it's not something you can do by yourself. The more the merrier. The end results are so worth the extra effort. Reminds me of when my daughter went to school in Italy and I visited her and ate pasta and pizza every night. Now if I could only figure out an easy way to make gelato.
Hope everyone has a great Easter. I for one, am really counting my blessings this holiday. This is the card I designed, that I never sent. But since I am such a high tech girl, I'm sending it via the net. Happy Easter to all my friends and family.
The topic for this week's Illustration Friday is Dip and what is more appropriate than chocolate dipped chicks? Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter or Passover. I plan on eating my weight in chocolate.
Last week after my doctor's appointment, I went with a friend to the UCLA family swimming pool and while I was waiting for her to finish, I shared a bag of crackers with my new best friend. Can't remember the last time I had such a memorable lunch date, and the best part is, he let me do all the talking. Since I will be over there every day for the next six weeks, this could become a regular thing.
