My health is good news and bad...

my tumors are shrinking wonderfully, so if it were all up to them, I'd have more time here. But, the magical mystery clinical trial medication does nothing for bones and other things, sooooooo, that part is not as much fun to live with. Be good to each other. You have today, chew it up in lovely big bites and savour its flavors slowly. Bye Sign in to see full entry.

Okay, so firing clay today and embracing big dreams as

our lives can be small and must contain something or fizzle out! Tried on another wig at the free wig place and it looked real. The lady complimented me and said, "It is you." I mumbled that yes it was. Took it off and said that what I really wanted was something inappropriate and fairly attention getting. She was inspired to go into the back room and pull out a fizzy reddish brown thing. I tried it on and remarked that it looked really bad. Yes, she agreed that it did look really bad. And I...

Okay, this all may fall apart, but it just might not.

I saw the mortgage loan officer for just a preliminary, AM I NUTS visit. He said that it just might be possible if one of my family or whoever will be a co-signer for I just need to find someone as optimistic and crazy as I am to do it, heheheheh. One son has promised to try. Friends are raising money for me for the down payment and I told them to hang onto it and not give it to me as yet, in case this all falls apart and it can be returned more easily. He said that there... Sign in to see full entry.

So much to do, so little time, A HA hahahahahah

So, I would write more, but I find that I am busy trying to make money. Silly me, I do write a bit about dying here as far as that goes, it gets funny in the second and third posts, I swear. Then, I am trying to figure out how I can buy a house and move out of the room in the back of Mom's house where I just sit waiting to die, rather than living....... I know, suddenly I want a house?? Wild, impractical and pissing off my mom. Here is the house that I am looking at >>> HERE It is only $27,3000,... Sign in to see full entry.

Guess I'll break the news here and maybe blog about it all, dunno

I had turned into a whining woman for the past five years, spending all of my Chinese checks on MRIs AND CT Scans and all that over those years. Well, five years later, I was accidentally diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer by a simple and need I say CHEAP x-ray of my pneumonia filled lungs in December's cold season. Everything happened at once. My landlord decided to sell the house that I had been renting CHEAPLY for 9 years, I had to move. So, while sick and too weak to fight for a new home,...

Grandma's world grows sadder with each news report.

I don't know WHAT the goals of the news agencies are. To inform? To alarm? To depress, to cause despair? IF I actually watch the news daily, with the world as huge and as linked as it is right now, I just have too much detailled suffocating input and then overload. Thoreau had it right when he cancelled all newspapers, periodicals and reading of that kind. He said that if something were important enough, some busy body, talkative neighbor would run all the way out to his hidden pond to inform... Sign in to see full entry.

I am babysitting a 2 1/2 month old granddaughter who has enslaved me.

You know that you put your children down at some point and get things done. Well, turns out, not to be the case with grandchildren. She is a screaming little thing who is fine as long as you are talking to her, walking her around the whole world, rocking her when she is sleepy, feeding her when she is hungry, changing her when she needs changing, but then, at all other moments she is screaming at me, eyes shut, mouth open, sobbing as though her whole world has just fallen apart. Amazing. I am... Sign in to see full entry.

Today my sister and I took the Semilla teachers to a picnic at a school

that began its career as an outdoor school, under open ramadas in the Arizona weather. The owner would pull down tarps and cloths to hold in the heat and to keep out the sun and the kids learned outside. It was a really country kind of place. It still is and in the middle of our town. Lovely. The owner explained how she grew slowly and how her school is still very small. She uses half of the classes' study times outdoors. One half does math inside and the other does it outside. It is a wonderful... Sign in to see full entry.

Another repost of Beauty Tips this time...

GRANDMA'S BEAUTY TIPS: First, never let your teeth get more than four feet away from you at any time. There could be a fire, a break in, an unexpected visitor or some old flame knocking at that door. Second,if unwilling to perform those tricep and bicep exercises, wear 3/4 length or long sleeves. Third, when young and hot, flaunt it. It will soon go and then you must NOT flaunt it, as it is gone forever, and public foolishness is hard to live down. Fourth, do something wild and unpredictable... Sign in to see full entry.

This is a reposting...

GRANDMA'S TIPS ON MARRYING: First, the don'ts, Don't marry Bob Jones, you won't enjoy it either. Second, don't marry the son of a big man in a small central american banana republic. He might become president one day and then everyone will know what an idiot you were. Third, don't marry a musician. They are never home, you can't fight the groupies and they have to share $15 with seven other fellows each night that they play. Fourth, don't marry someone who doesn't like their mother. They won't... Sign in to see full entry.
