“Cancer has been my guru…”

August 30th, 2007 · No Comments

I saw a commercial for a documentary called Crazy Sexy Cancer. I have not seen the show on tv yet but I found a place online where you can watch part of it. The girl in the documentary said something that I could really relate to. “…cancer has been my guru…it’s my teacher and it […]

The family comes for a visit

August 4th, 2007 · No Comments

8/4/07-8/7/07 My parents drove up to visit and brought Tori.  I could not be happier.  I miss all of them so much, especially Tori.  Everything went well.  On Saturday night we went to El Torrito because that is one of Tori’s favorite restaurants.  The service was kind of questionable but that made the night more […]
