like the title??? :)
I have to be on this low iodine diet for radiation(plus the 7-9 pounds that i have put on) has totally inspired me to come back--but only to this board on iv and I still can only read one page at a time). I've never had such inspirational and caring ladies such as ya'll. Sorry if I condense all my stuff onto one page and not reply to each message I will try though!!

Breakfast: BAcon and eggs and handful of lucky charms that Joshie shoved in my mouth

Lunch: Can of sweet peas ((yes i know, that was my dinner last night also, its the stupid diet)

Dinner: Stouffers beef and vegtables skillet (I know full of sodium but thats all we had and I've been so exhausted).

Since I've been cleaning and stuff and not making siggy's I decided to put my graphic talents to opening a store!! I don't want to get hit for spam here but it's really awesome if anyone has heard of cafe press! I found alot of great cancer and weight loss shirts there so I decided to do it for myself! Anyways, its just something fun to do to relieve stress for me and if it makes money cool, if not then oh well!!

My mom comes saturday to be with me, then I am gone to radiation, then see hubby, then back here to pack, then off to VA! Busy busy busy!

Miss you ladies!!! What have i missed???

Glad to see you on Rachel also glad everything is moving along .My Mom gained about 20 pounds after her surgery and radiation but quickly lost it all after it was done. she dropped rioght back down to her nothingness LOL, my Mom was so tiny about 5'2 and about 100 pounds soaking wet.So keep your chin up and sending tons and tons of love and healing thoughts out to you.

My life is a little crazy as my hubby is home for 6 weekas aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ,he is having surgery tomorrow but will be just fine. This is the longest amount of time we have spent together since we got married LOL 16 years ago

My granddaughter is in a cast as she broke her toe and it is a really weird fracture as it made the joint look kind of like a flower so she has to see an orthopedist.

I got a new truck well suv and the sun is shining and I am having an MRI but all is well here

you take care of you kiddo and will be waiting to hear from you soon

I'm glad to see you back... been wondering how things were going. I hope you have a nice time with your mom. Peas? What do peas have to do with iodine? I have never even heard of a low iodine diet. That is odd.
I went on a trip to London and got back about two weeks ago. I fell in love with the city, all the history and architecture and let us not forget the cool British accent. My boyfriend is in the middle of 1st year law school finals, which wrap up tomorrow THANK GOD! This has been the hardest time we've ever gone through. I try not to get frustrated, but he is always stressed out and always studying. We're talking studying like 12 to 14 hrs. a day - I am not exaggerating - for the past three weeks. It is about to drive me nuts not being able to spend time with him. But it's almost over. :)
