A Saturday in my life...

I think today was the least amount of pictures I took during this self-imposed project. That happens when you're tired....


I only noticed now how hideous my hair looks. I went out in public this way. Yikes! 


I gave myself a reward of bringing my lunch to work daily with a trip to a scrapbooking store I like in a nearby city. There's an area with beautiful old homes right by the shop. 

A Friday in my life....

 Friday once again didn't capture the whole day, but here we go with what I do have!

Good morning! Lol...

I honestly didn't mean to capture that but am glad now that I did.

A Wednesday in my life...

 Wednesday wasn't much different, except for the beloved waxing to get rid of that fun adenoma facial hair! I just love that I can share that now on a blog dedicated to pituitary adenomas-NOT! Lol.

 A Wednesday in photos:

A moody wake up photo. Lol. 

Traffic on the way to work-after I got off the freeway. 


Decor where I got my waxing done. 

Thumbs up for getting my waxing done and being able to show the sides of my face again! :)

A Tuesday in my life...

 I took less photos today. It was just that kind of day. Here are my Tuesday photos.

Hideous, but accurate...


It rained. And was humid. And it rained...

Freeway travel in the rain in Southern California...



It was payday today... Yaaay!!!!

Waking up is no fun.....

Pituitary adenomas

 So I changed the main subject of this blog a little while ago to focus on pituitary adenomas-and have done little with talking about it.

 I guess part of the problem is that I don't want to talk about it. My tumor is small enough that I'm fortunate to not have some of the issues that plague others who have large adenomas. I also just had my yearly eye exam, which showed no issue with the tumor and my vision. You can go blind if the tumor gets big enough, so I'm fortunate that mine is small.

 Also, it seems as if my tumor is at the exact same size and has been for a few years. That's good. It may never grow either is what one endocrinologist told me. The same endocrinologist told me that small adenomas are often found during autopsies and that studies have been done showing folks in nursing homes with them-and they've probably had them for years upon years. That's all well and good. However......

 There is a need to talk about this. These are brain tumors! They're very rare to get but can affect many aspects of your life if left untreated. Many. Infertility, mood problems, weight problems... The list goes on and on.

 With that being said, I'm going to work this subject into some more posts. I hope it can help some people-whether they be diagnosed or have a family member living with this.

 It'd be awesome to help at least one person gain understanding into this.

9/11 Memorial

 A retired firefighter in the city I live in does a phenomenal job each year turning his front yard into a 9/11 memorial. He has even been on TV in past years for his phenomenal work. (It truly is phenomenal.)

 I've visited this memorial every year for the past 4 years because it's just a really good tradition. We should never forget this event as a country-and people like this retired firefighter do a great job showing the world why.

 Here are some photos of this year's memorial:
