My baby reading a book to his cousin. He has cowlicks that won't quit, poor kid. Christmas 2009
I am a Catholic homeschooling mom of three beautiful kids - well, the oldest two have finished college, so only my baby, Danny, is still homeschooled. Danny, who is sixteen, was diagnosed with medulloblastoma (brain cancer) in March of 2013. Since then he underwent two brain surgeries, six weeks of radiation, and over a year of chemotherapy. He was in remission for a few brief months, and then relapsed. Next he had another brain surgery and then completed a year of very difficult chemotherapy, ...
I am a Catholic homeschooling mom of three beautiful kids - well, the oldest two have finished college, so only my baby, Danny, is still homeschooled. Danny, who is sixteen, was diagnosed with medulloblastoma (brain cancer) in March of 2013. Since then he underwent two brain surgeries, six weeks of radiation, and over a year of chemotherapy. He was in remission for a few brief months, and then relapsed. Next he had another brain surgery and then completed a year of very difficult chemotherapy, with multiple nasty side effects. But he is still with us, and doing OK. It was all worth it because he is still with us.
I myself am a breast cancer survivor, and I have degenerative arthritis in my hip, which makes walking painful. Other than that, I am pretty healthy, for which I am extremely grateful.
Right now my goals are to incorporate small healthy changes. One other goal is to be able to exercise without severe pain in my hip...not sure if that is feasible with my arthritis.
I am trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, plus walking as much as I can without pain.
I am originally an Army brat and have lived in quite a few places. Currently I am in Texas, at least for a while. I have three kids, ages 26, 23, and 16. My degrees are in chemistry, but at the moment I am concentrating on trying to get Danny through relapse treatment and all that that entails.
Strength of character isn't always about how much you can handle before you break, it's also about how much you can handle after you've broken.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog about Armenia!
The honest answer to your questions is: I don't have a clue. :) It was at the angle of a wall, just opposite the Cathedral. Not a grave stone, not a door, possibly just an architectural detail. The cross is absolutely everywhere in Armenia, and as you can imagine even more so in a monastery!
But if I can, I'll ask one of my colleagues and let you know. I hope you'll have a good Tuesday, starting the week feeling exhausted always feels terrible.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. I will put your son, Danny, on my prayer list. And, I will put you on there, too. I loved reading your positive attitude. You can do this with God's strength.

Yes, just add 12 ounces of any soda to a standard boxed cake mix. I am not making it up! Google it, and you will see that is quite common. You can create all sorts of flavor combinations, and if you use diet soda, it will allow you to save calories. Some purport that you cannot use diet soda because heating of the sweeteners is dangerous, but I have been making cakes like this for many years, with both diet and regular soda. I make all of my cupcakes and cakes this way because I like the variety of flavor combos.

Thanks for commenting on both of my blogs about my kitten. I think both dogs and cats each have their own special qualities. I've always loved both but like a dog for a pet better. But times change in my life and now a cat seems the way to go for me. Hope you do get to have your cat again one day.
