  44. Last November I found out I had Cervical Cancer. After a few failed attempts to kill it, I had surgery in May and am now cancer <strong><a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/ramblings-such/im-just-sayin/" target="_blank">free</a></strong>! It&#8217;s kinda weird being able to summarize those 6 months of emotions in just a few sentences, but it&#8217;s also wonderful to be able to do so! I had a great support system and never felt I was going through it alone. Have I mentioned my friends and family are thee best ever? Just sayin&#8217;.</h4>
  45. <h4>My best friend had a baby in July. It was absolutely amazing to not only watch her experience the pregnancy, but the birth as well. We have been through so much together but watching her precious little girl come into this world was the ultimate!&nbsp;</p>

  52. Now for a moment of silence to mourn the <del style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;">house</del> home I grew up in&#8230;ssshhh!!!&#8230;My parents decided it was time to downsize and sold the home they bought when I was about 7&#8230;like </span><del style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;">10</del><span style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;"> </span><del style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;">15</del><span style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;"> </span><del style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;">25</del><span style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;"> </span><del style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;">years</del><span style="font-size: 1em; font-weight: normal;"> a long time ago. It broke my heart to walk out of there knowing it would be the last time. I do my best to avoid that part of town&#8230;for now. Seriously? It&#8217;s just a house&#8230;full of memories&#8230;of 4 generations. (does anybody know anything about the trespassing laws in California!) (just asking!)</span></h4>
  53. <h4><strong>What else was there&#8230;.</strong><br />
  54. Oh yeah, speaking of memories. One day, <span style="color: #808080;">like June 30th at 2:22 p.m. <span style="color: #000000;">as my parents were getting settled in &#8220;that new place&#8221; I sat on the couch next to my daughter-in-law visiting with her and my sons. I had my phone in hand <del>waiting for an important&#8230;</del> as usual, after all she was busy texting &#8220;someone&#8221; and so was one of my son&#8217;s. Then I got a text message and I&#8217;m all like, &#8220;Excuse me&#8230;I got a message too!&#8221; It was from my daughter-in-law. I expected it to say something like &#8216;Ewww, do you like that color paint your mom used in the dining room??&#8217; It didn&#8217;t. This is the message&#8230;<br />
  55. <a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/our-baby1.jpg" target="_blank"></a> <a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/our-baby1.jpg" target="_blank"><img style="margin: 3px 7px;" title="our baby" src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/our-baby1-228x300.jpg" alt="" width="205" height="270" align="left" /></a><br />
  56. My reaction? 1) Threw my phone across the room. 2) Screamed. 3) Screamed. 4) Hugged them. 5) Cried. 6) Screamed. 7) Convinced the new neighbors, 911 was not necessary. 8 ) Picked up my phone and reread the message&#8230;which took care of #9, call and text everyone I know. because when I reread it I saw&#8230;<br />
  57. <em>Look at this precious baby&#8230;your grandchild&#8230;your 1st grandchild&#8230;the one you could not wait to have..but don&#8217;t tell anyone!!!</em> They&#8217;re so cute. They&#8217;re so funny. <em>They&#8217;re so serious</em>. I&#8217;m just going to put it out there, I did tell a few people. I knew my boundaries tho and would never cross them. Everybody at the Post Office was thrilled, almost as thrilled as each and every person in Pep Boys that helped me look for a Worlds Greatest Grandma To Be keychain, but not nearly as happy as everyone at my doctors. I so could not wait to brag to my friends though. I may or may not have asked daily, how much longer? Now? Can I say anything on Facebook? Are you guys ready? Then&#8230;I got a text from my daughter in law, &#8220;<em>&#8230;you have our blessing to make an announcement.</em>&#8221; Holla, I&#8217;ve got this!<a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/our-baby-g.jpg" target="_blank"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-14359" title="our baby " src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/our-baby-g.jpg" alt="" width="480" height="194" /></a></span></span></h4>
  58. <h4>What an honor, how amazing are my kids? I&#8217;m a grandma to be and can finally brag <del datetime="2013-09-10T09:27:24+00:00">and brag and brag</del> about it.<br />
  59. <a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/gramma-2-be.jpg" target="_blank"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-14451" title="gramma 2 be" src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/gramma-2-be.jpg" alt="" width="480" height="278" /></a>When it came time to find out if <em>we</em> were having a baby boy or baby girl, I was told I would find out out the Gender Reveal Party. I&#8217;m like<a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/dr-dr.jpg" target="_blank"><img title="dr dr" src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/dr-dr-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="105" height="105" align="right" /></a> whadda ya mean??? I want to know NOW!! Truth be told, I actually DID find a way to join the ultrasound incognito&#8230;but when I found out more about the Gender Reveal Party, I was totally on board and ditched the disguise! Hours after my son and daughter-in-law learned of their baby&#8217;s sex, close friends and family gathered at her parents home. There were cupcakes beautifully decorated in pink and blue frosting, they were filled with either blue <strong>or</strong> pink frosting which would reveal&#8230;boy or girl. With cupcakes in hand, we were instructed to take a bite nowwwwww&#8230;<br />
  60. <a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/me-and-my-babies.jpg" target="_blank"><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-14449" title="me and my babies" src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/me-and-my-babies-1024x500.jpg" alt="" width="430" height="210" /></a><br />
  61. I am going to spare y&#8217;all and not post the video of my reaction to finding the pink frosting. I think it is startling even on mute. <del>I kid.</del> I had never really had a &#8220;feeling&#8221; either way, but for some reason honestly expected to see blue in that cupcake, but I&#8217;m just going to put it out there&#8230;I am beyond happy that I am having a grandprincess!!!!&nbsp;</p>
  62. <p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Its-a-girl.jpg" target="_blank"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-14445" title="It's a girl!" src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Its-a-girl.jpg" alt="" width="474" height="185" /></a></p>
  63. </h4>
  64. <h4>My daughter-in-law sent me a text later that night&#8230;I&#8217;m not going to lie, I was afraid to read it. I was afraid it was another &#8220;still a secret  till further notice&#8221; text. It wasn&#8217;t. Thank God. It was a picture, she asked if I would use it to create an <em>it&#8217;s a girl</em> announcement for her. I was thrilled&#8230;and prompt. As much as I love my new friends at the post office, Pep Boys and my doctors, I couldn&#8217;t wait to <del>brag</del> tell my <del>real</del> other friends. All of them. And I did.<br />
  65. See?</h4>
  66. <h4>I entered 2013 with cancer and uncertainty. The day I had surgery&#8230;my son and daughter-in-law learned they were going to be parents. As my parents moved, I said goodbye to my childhood home where so many memories had been made&#8230;it was in their new home I learned I was going to be a grandma. Best memory ever. My best friend had a beautiful baby girl and started her new life as a mommy&#8230;my granddaughter will be 6 months younger than Sophia. We already have play dates planned, for like 6 years.<br />
  67. Life is funny.<br />
  68. Last year was a disaster.<br />
  69. This year has been good<br />
  70. Next year will be amazing, I will have a grandprincess.</h4>
  71. <h4>I&#8217;m really going to do my best to clean up the spiderwebs and dedicate more time to my site. Let&#8217;s not count how many times I&#8217;ve said that though&#8230;obviously not only am I a bad blogger, gramma&#8217;s a liar too!</h4>

  226. <h3 style="text-align: center;"><strong>I TOLD YOU SO!!!</strong></h3>
  227. <h4>As I sit at a place that could be best described as a piece of paradise, I am relaxed, I am content&#8230;I am carefree. Those feelings however change, day to day, hour to hour&#8230;sometimes minute to minute. With just a few weeks left, 2012 got it&#8217;s last jab in. (persistant little <del>bast</del> thing isn&#8217;t it!) Truth be told, without the love and support of those near and dear to me, this could have easily pushed me over the edge. But it didn&#8217;t&#8230;and it won&#8217;t.</h4>

  229. <h4>I will know more in a few days and will share once I have processed it all. It has been an amazing year so far, (20+ days, holla!!!) I am heading in the <span style="color: #333333;"><strong><em>right</em></strong></span> direction and I&#8217;m going to continue on that path. Should I have to carry what&#8217;s <strong><span style="color: #333333;"><em>left</em> </span></strong>on that path, it will only make me stronger. It&#8217;s ok, I&#8217;m ok&#8230;I&#8217;ve got this.</h4>
  230. <h4>As the year ends and I revisit it, I will look back at how wonderful it was and (<em>because you know I will</em>) say&#8230;</h4>

  279. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<h4>We are 10 months in to 2012, so far? No bueno.<br />
  280. My blog has been severely neglected, my camera collecting dust and the pages in my journals remain untouched. Though my passion for all remain, the desire has faded. I somehow lost a part of myself, the part that defines who I am&#8230;was.</h4>
  281. <h4>Tragedy struck our family this last February, it really put life in perspective for me. With that being said, I have slowly started removing my blinders and rose colored glasses. I am seeing people and life&#8217;s situations more for <em>who</em> and <em>what</em> they really are. It has been both, a rude awakening and a pleasant surprise. As cool as I am with 2012 ending, it has offered a few good <del>days</del> <del>hours</del> <del>moments</del> days. Here&#8217;s a quick recap&#8230; (watch this be the shortest post in the history of the WWW!)<br />
  282. I took a mini vaca to Las Vegas, I so needed it and thoroughly enjoyed it! I&#8217;m not really a gambler, I do love me some Fremont Street though! The atmosphere, the photo op&#8217;s, great company&#8230;a change of pace! It was fun, but O EMMM GEEE was it hot!!!</h4>
  283. <p><a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/IMG_2604-copy.jpg" target="_blank"><img class="alignleft size-medium wp-image-14004" style="margin-left: 15px; margin-right: 15px;" title="Vegas" src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/IMG_2604-copy-300x200.jpg" alt="" width="210" height="140" /></a><a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/IMG_2633-copy.jpg" target="_blank"><img class="alignright size-medium wp-image-14007" style="margin-left: 15px; margin-right: 15px;" title="Vegas2" src="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/IMG_2633-copy-300x200.jpg" alt="" width="210" height="140" /></a></p>
  284. <h4>Feline Frenzy&#8230;MEOW!! This would be one of the reasons that mini vaca was so needed! After befriending a feral cat, who&#8217;s meow appropriately earned her the name &#8220;Squeeks,&#8221; I realized she was pregnant. There are an abundance of feral cats around here, obviously their situations are less than ideal. I hoped and prayed when the time came, Squeeks would find a safe and quiet place to give birth. She did. In the bushes in my front yard. Truth be told, I shed a tear when I saw Eeny, Meeny, Miney and Mo. I now had 5 feral cats living amongst my Lily&#8217;s and Irises that I felt 100% responsible for. Because that wasn&#8217;t enough, another feral kitten (about 4 weeks old) <strong>literally</strong> appeared in the backyard a few days later. Who acquires 6 stray cats in less than a week? I do&#8230;that&#8217;s who!!! Because of some amazing people, (<a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/ramblings-such/god-lamb-you-melt-my-heart/" target="_blank"><strong>Benji</strong></a>, my God lambs family) this story does have a happy ending. They took in and fostered Squeeks, Eeny, Meeny, Miney and Mo!!! (I could NOT be any more grateful!!!) &#8220;Miracle&#8221; kitty was given a home within hours of her surprise visit!! MEOW!</h4>

  286. <h4>My cousin from Chicago is now working out here in So Cali a week every month. (I wouldn&#8217;t have a life if it wasn&#8217;t for him. <em>For real</em>!!) We have done baseball games, (go Angels!!) (Hello Mike Trout!!) we saw Van Halen a few months ago, we go to dinner, we do cocktails&#8230;we laugh nonstop!!!

  288. <h4>I tried to spend as much time possible with my lil niece/BFF, <a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/me-n-joey.jpg" target="_blank"><strong>Joey</strong></a> before&#8230;she started kindergarten in August! We have finally moved on from our days on the playground (thank you baby Jesus!) and have become quite the choreographers. Watch for our video debut which will include dances such as The Kitten, The Sunburn, The Stroke, Funky Turtle, Crazy Snap, The I Dunno, Just Drivin&#8217; and many more&#8230;it&#8217;s<em> sure</em> to go viral! I absolutely cherish each and every moment with her&#8230; I love you Beans to the moon and back and back again!!!</h4>

  290. <h4>Have I mentioned my obsession for <strong><a href="http://www.whatsleftofmyhead.com/ramblings-such/angels-in-flight/" target="_blank">dolphins</a></strong>? Ever? I recently went on another dolphin safari&#8230;one word, ABSOLUTELYFLIPPINGAMAZING!! The catamaran was less than 1/3 full, the weather was perfect and within minutes of leaving the marina we were surrounded. It was all I could do to compose myself. Actually, I&#8217;m not sure that I did. I think with some time and a little begging&#8230;maybe a few homemade cookies, they&#8217;ll forget about everything and let me come back! I kid. Kinda.<br />

  292. A friend had a get together this past weekend for our &#8216;group&#8217; from high school. We have managed to do this about once a year for the last few years and it&#8217;s always a good time. Just about, if not all of us have been friends since we were 15 years old. We have shared so many memories together&#8230;good and bad. It blows me away that none of us have aged&#8230;like at all!<br />

  294. My oldest son turned 29 in August, my youngest hit 26 in September and I <del>turned</del> became a year older last week. My oldest and his beautiful wife will celebrate their 1st anniversary next month. I&#8217;m not quite sure how all of this is even remotely possible, considering&#8230;well&#8230;my age! I&#8217;m just going to put it out there&#8230;my kids are great and I could not be prouder! (except for the fact I don&#8217;t think they are being honest about the whole age thing!!) My son will hit another cancer free anniversary in just a few weeks&#8230;I am so blessed!!! (and young)<br />

  296. Not going to lie&#8230;I&#8217;m just as shocked as you are that this post consists of more than 4 sentences&#8230;.<em>or that there&#8217;s a post at all</em>!! I hate to wish time away, and I am going to be thankful to move forward from 2012, but all and all it did offer a few good <del>days</del> <del>hours</del> <del>moments</del> days.</h4>
