I remember thinking it was cool that my niece Adrienne was born on (her dad) Robes' birthday. She was 2 in this photo and he was 38 +40 pounds from steroids after his brain tumor diagnosis. I hope Adrienne got my birthday package and has a good first missionary birthday. #pattonmemories
This Sunday marks the 18th year we've participated with our team PATTON'S ARMY. Friend Brian Sweeney will be the only rider (he has ridden every year) in memory of my brother Robes and the others battling brain tumors. Let me know if you are interested in making a donation toward advancing the vision of A WORLD WITHOUT BRAIN TUMORS.
I extended my stay in Oregon so have been with my parents for 8 days (with 2 more to go). It's sad to see my mom wheelchair bound (she has no left hip), in pain (foot, leg and back), and with basically no memory (#dementiayouarecruel). We've enjoyed singing, playing games, working puzzles, yummy meals, resting and daily drives. I wouldn't trade this time for anything. #ilovemymom
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
