Why yes! It is Wednesday again!

I’m still cranky. I think it’s just a combination of winter, and not feeling quite back to normal yet. I try really hard not to take it out on anyone else but oh my goodness that’s tough sometimes. Everybody and everything is getting on my nerves. I want to do a post that just spouts off all the things that get on my nerves but that will not serve the greater good today.

 Booked a hotel in Flagstaff AZ for April. I did not book at one of the big hotels. Instead we’ll fly into Flagstaff and rent a car.  It’s a two hour drive to the Canyon and since we’re early people that will be just fine. The hotel is 15 minutes from the Airport and got really nice reviews on Trip Advisor, but it’s $80.00 a night instead of the $230 I was looking at for some by the rim.

We’re also going to do a train tour one day. It departs like 15 minutes from our hotel and then takes you to the Canyon, you spend four hours there and then take the train home. Maybe we’ll do that the first day. There is a bus tour you can take when you get off the train so I think I will add that to my list too.

We like exploring the area so I’m sure from our Flagstaff base we’ll see where we can drive to on day trips. Hope the weather is good!


I am scheduled to get my port removed next week. The Doctors gave me a little push back when I asked for it to be done. She said well normally we like people to keep them in for six months to a year. I have a couple of things to say in response to that, 1.) you guys never suggested I get it to begin with! It was the nurses at the chemo place who suggested it when my veins were all collapsing and causing uber amounts of pain and they are also the ones who keep asking me when I’ll get it out! 2.) My chance of needing the port in six months is probably exactly the same as it is that I’ll need it in 18 months, so whatever. It doesn’t bother me having it in as much as you would think except that it’s always catching on things and it’s painful when it does. I’ve had a bruise there for so long I can’t believe it won’t be permanent.


I can’t believe nobody commented on that fact that my last post was all in rhyme! Okay, it wasn’t good rhyme but I do try to entertain.


A facebook friend started a flickr group for a picture a day for 365 days!  It starts tomorrow. I wonder how many days I will be able to remember to do it.



I finally signed up for a pinterest account today. Does anyone use it? I am TLM0000 (those are zero’s)  Like I need another online site. J  I started with vacation information.


I think that’s all the excitement we can handle today.
