My Dirt

    I am still in shock. What a crazy ride I’ve been on for the past few months, my emotions are all over the map and I’m finding it very difficult to fully accept the news that I am, indeed, cancer free. When I decided to open up my life and my feelings and go public with, what we … Continue reading


Nothing is more terrifying that knowing that the results are in. It’s the longest drive to the hospital. It’s the longest walk down the hallway and the longest wait in the waiting room. Diagnosis. Right neck node; Biopsy: – Reactive follicular hyperplasia – NO definitive morphological evidence of involvement by nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin lymphoma Translation: No muther-effing cancer!   … Continue reading


I can’t say it enough. Lice sucks. And for some reason the same kid has had it twice in her life and yet the other 3 kids (knock on wood) haven’t been affected. Lucky her. The first time we had lice in the house I wanted to move out and call that company that comes and covers the entire house … Continue reading


    My friends keep asking me “what can I do for you?” and at this point, I honestly don’t know what to tell them. This is so new to me, this whole, telling everyone in my friend circle and publishing it to the world, that I am human and have hard days and that I will try to let … Continue reading


Warning: This post is going to suck! I wish I had better news but I don’t, I have cancer…again. I knew in my gut that it was going to be bad news and I walked in ready and bracing for the confirmation. Unlike the first time, when I was oozing positivity almost to the point of being annoying and then I … Continue reading


Phew, it’s been 30 days doing this challenge with Manulife to save and I have to admit one thing, centsability makes money. It’s funny that when I started this 30 day challenge, I set out a goal for myself to stop spending so much on crappy, expensive snacks for my kids lunches and make them snacks instead. This was overall … Continue reading


I’ve realized that I think I know everything but in reality, I know nothing. I fake it and tell my kids that “mommy knows and sees ALL!” but what I can never tell them is that in fact, they’re totally stumping me all the time. These damn mini-me’s are beating me at my own game. Here are 5 mysteries all … Continue reading


He looked me in the face and said, “don’t panic, not yet. let me do the worrying and when there’s something for you to worry about, I’ll let you know.”     That’s what my oncologist said to me at my 6 month check up. See, I was deemed cancer free after my scan came back clear (post treatment) in … Continue reading


What do you do when someone asks you to try out winter tires when there’s no snow on the ground outside? You take the cars inside. Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful city of Denver, Colorado to get ready for winter driving with Bridgestone Tires and Tire Rack to learn about what it really means to … Continue reading


Here I am, half way (ummm, maybe a little more than half way) thru my #CentsAbility month. It’s time for a CentsAbility update.     When I started the CentsAbility challenge 2 weeks ago, I talked about saving money by making and baking snacks for my kids lunches rather than buying expensive pre-packaged treats. I am happy to report that … Continue reading
