Back to the doctor…will it ever end?!
Back to the doctor…will it ever end?!

Hallelujah!  Holy good gracious, I got some good news at the electrophysiologist!  Many do not know that since I delivered my 2nd son, Baker, 19 months ago I’ve had a lot of heart problems.  The day I delivered him I was put on a heart monitor and then they kicked me out of the maternity ward and sent me to cardiac.  I got to come back the next afternoon, but when my PVCs turned into V-tach I was lovingly kicked out of maternity again and sent back to cardiac.  Baker got released from the hospital […]

keeping Shutterfly in business
keeping Shutterfly in business

I can’t say that I just LOVE the task of making a photo album, but I do love having them so I feel it’s worth the effort.  I’ve never really been into scrapbooking, so creating memories through photo albums are my preference.  I’ve always used Shutterfly for these projects because they send you 100 coupons and emails about Free this, and Free that, and __% off of everything!  It makes you wonder what it REALLY costs for them to make this stuff when they can slap discounts left and right.  It’s like going to Kohl’s […]

Slept until 11:15am
Slept until 11:15am

Do you remember the last time you slept until 11:15?!  Sure, I used to do it plenty when I was in high school, college, even my first few years of teaching I would sleep in on the weekends.  Once you have kids, there is no sleeping in.  I’m lucky in the fact that my kids will sleep “late,” (and by late I mean 8 or 9) but they also stay up until hours that I don’t feel like mentioning because you’ll judge me.  I did get to sleep in one other time during motherhood; that […]

Mommy’s Sippy Cup
Mommy’s Sippy Cup

Yes, I’m posting this in the middle of the day.  No, I’m not drinking in the middle of the day…at least not today.  No judgement here if you are lushing it up by the pool; if anything I’m jealous!  A drink now and then is good for us, and we all need a sippy cup for that drink!  I like to fill mine with wine…or Jesus juice as the RHOD lovingly refer to it.  I prefer a good white wine that’s either a pinot grigio, riesling, or moscato.  I recently discovered a California white white by […]

Good Book!  Perfect for Summer!
Good Book! Perfect for Summer!

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty You know a murder happens, but you don’t know who does it, who’s the victim, or how they die….until the end.  It’s written very creatively!  The story begins before the incident, but it does these witness flashbacks throughout the book from people recollecting what happened.  Truthfully, it took me a few chapters to get hooked, but when I was hooked I was hooked.  I turned into one of those bookworms you see that walks down a hallway with their nose in a book because “they just can’t put it down.” […]

God Bless…I feel good!
God Bless…I feel good!

This is so tricky because you sure as heck don’t want to speak too soon; but I am through day 8 of 14 through round 4 of chemo, and I feel fine!    Seriously!  I don’t even have a metallic taste in my mouth…hopefully I don’t wake up tomorrow and have jinxed myself and feel like I’ve been sucking on a dollar worth of pennies…but I’m beyond grateful that I’m this far through my round and feel fine.  Last night we had movie night with our boys, and I got to snuggle them on the […]

#Disneymom

I am a sweater.  Not as in a warm, snuggly soft clothing item, but I am a person that perspires…a lot!  I don’t glisten or sparkle, I full on sweat like a man.  There’s not a lot I can do about this, so I plan accordingly.  I came prepared this time to sweat my tail off in Disney.  I turned into…a Disney Mom.  No, I didn’t put my family in matching shirts with “Taube Disney vacation 2016” blasted on the front, but I did try to coordinate the boys…I mean, I do have an embroidery […]

Ashley, you have cancer…what are you going to do?!  I’m going to Disney World!
Ashley, you have cancer…what are you going to do?! I’m going to Disney World!

Whoop! Whoop!  This time our reason to go to Florida was much more exciting.  We had to be in Tampa for June 10th, so we made an Orlando trip out of it.  I wasn’t on meds this past week, so I was feeling good.  Getting to see your kids see characters they see on TV in real life and watching their eyes light up is priceless.  It was REALLY easy not to think about stupid cancer this week because I was too mesmerized by watching my boys. Now, I would like to say, if you […]

June TENTH
June TENTH

I am currently living my life in 3 month intervals.  Mike and I don’t really know what my prognosis is going to be past these 3 month intervals.  On chemo, I have to get my blood checked at the end of each 28 cycle, and after 3 cycles I have to do a CT scan.  The blood work is to ensure my body is handling the chemo well enough and my white and red blood cells, platelets, and bilirubin are all at relatively normal ranges.  The CT scan is to see how well the chemo […]
