Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Happy Birthday to my husband today!

In his own words, he's "crossed over to the dark side." Meaning, he's now closer to 40 than he is to 30.

Last night to celebrate we all went to the Mall of America to the Rainforest Cafe and on the amusement rides. (Okay, that was more for the kids, but still fun for all of us).

Today we let him sleep in while I took the kids to church. Then we all went to our favorite breakfast place. Tonight Cameron and I are taking him to NBA City and to a Timberwolves Game.

The man works too hard and needs a little fun!

Hey Max~

You look so grown up in this picture. HA! HA! For whatever reason, I always mix up you and Wally's birthdays. I thought yours was the 17th of this month.

Nonetheless, Happy Birthday! By the way, I need for you to slow down aging a little bit. You know that since you are the oldest of us, you do everything first. So that means, I inch closer to 40 just like you! HA! HA!

I hope you had a wonderful day!
