My name is Nicole and I’m a hoopy frood who really knows where her towel’s at. I’m a thirtyish (I’m refusing to use the phrase “thirtysomething”. It’s so 80s. I’m sure it’s copyrighted somewhere anyway.) (ETA 2010) part-time music teacher! SAHM and non-practicing musician who has become a knitting fiber addict. I have been married to my wonderful DH for 10! years (yes we got married in 2000 JUST so it was easy to count.) I was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer in January of 2008 and am still in the middle of reconstruction. ETA 2012 diagnosed with metastic disease to the bones. I’m not a big fan of the fightinging breast cancer metaphor. I’ve lost too many friends to whom it seems an insult that they didn’t fight hard enough. I will go into treatment again and live the best that I can for as long as I can. This I will promise. Maybe I’ll finally write that book.
