A fairy tale ending?

September 11, 2008

Part 2 of A Muddy Single Mom, a Fairy Tale Sydney’s curse happened just one day after I’d taken Benjamin to the book store.

Cancer SUCKS.

September 5, 2008

Jim Everson, known to many of you as Depot Dad, just found out that he has a severe form of skin cancer. We’re still waiting to find out just how severe… but it’s looking, well, very scary. I haven’t even called him yet because I know I would just burst into tears. I hate cancer. […]
