Lose The Booze

You may recall that last year I participated in a fundraising campaign for BC Cancer called 'Lose the Booze'. I've signed up again and losing the booze, or as I like to say 'wine time', for 28 days. If you'd like to donate,  go to and search my name. The money isn't just for one cancer which I think it so great, as all cancer types deserve a shot at a cure. Guess you know I'll be the DD so let me know if you need a lift!

Over the last few days I've been reading over my blog starting from my first entry, and besides random spelling errors (I blame my meds) was liking what I read. It's almost like I'm a stranger reading someone else's words which is kinda cool. I was reminded that my anxiety started way earlier than I remember and laughed and some of my jokes.

I miss writing. A definite positive from my cancer journey was discovering my love for writing.  So in saying that I'm trying to think of something to write about. A whole other topic. Maybe a cancer advice column like I first thought. Not too sure. I just want to write.  Maybe a book? Who knows, but I'm thinking.

A day in the life of Carly is pretty tame these days. Working and happy. Anxiety still runs strong but I cope. Pretty boring really. Oh & Simba forges on. Was a bit worried he was using his last of 9 lives around Christmas, but with a fattier diet he's back to waking me up pre-alarm and greeting me with meows (cause he wants wet food) when I walk in the door.

This blog now sits at 64,245 views. I remember when it was 800 lol. Thank you for reading & sharing this crazy journey with me. Would you read my column or buy my book ha ha ha

Lots of love!
