Sweet November

I love November. I'd love it more if it were warmer, but i say that 9 months out of the year. I like all the leaves blowing around making a mess... it makes everyone else's yard look messy for a while instead of just mine. There's still halloween candy, can't argue with that, I love Thanksgiving in Vermont and it's my birthday month. In fact, it's the month of birthdays of so many good friends because Scorpio women seem to be my thing {no, not that way}, but for whatever reason, most of my best and most enduring relationships with women are Scorpio women, so November has a lot of celebrating. Happy Birthday Scorpio Women.

I started the month by moving into my new studio which I LOVE. I have studio-mates now, hand-picked for their awesomeness. Aside from 1200 sq. ft. of spectacular, we have a closet, a couch and tea on demand machine, we are living it up! The fact that I actually got everything from point A to point B was near miraculous, I did some cathartic purging and organizing, unpacked and settled in to work, high hopes for my little biz this year and necessary because the mortgage payments are now all mine. I got the gallery together lickety-split, everything fit perfectly in the allotted space and looked great for opening day. First Saturday of the Farmer's Market was one step past lovely -- catching up with my favorite regular customers, seeing the farmer's again, friends stopping in, food trucks... need i say more? Once you say "food truck", you're pretty much all done. My divorce court date was FINALLY set for Nov. 21... CRAFTOPIA just around the corner and everything falling into place. This was lining up to be the best month ever followed by the best year ever.

Finally, my new life which i've been crawling over broken glass to get to, my brand new shiny life... YAY! And internet dating, i swear i was gonna do it.

November, yes... well the first 8 days of November at least -- a whole week! then on the 9th day, I got cancer. Thanks cancer, i think i hate you. well, i didn't just get it, obviously... i had it but didn't know it because cancer is a sneaky little bastard.

So that's what this blog is about. How cancer kissed my ass on the way out, because uninvited guests WILL be shown the door. This blog is how, if you are interested, you can find out how things are going because i can only make so many phone calls and send so many emails... might as well have it all in one place. So there will be cancer talk, tasteless cancer jokes which I can make and you can't because i have cancer and you don't, so there. No doubt my obsession with politics and current events will pop up and who the heck knows what else, because like life and everything else, it is a work in progress.

If you know me even just a little, you know I love to write. It is the most enjoyable, easy and cathartic thing I can think of to do, so I'd be honored if you'd join me on this trek. xo... k t c


  1. Boo for cancer, but Yay for blogging about it! I'm glad you're going to do this, I think it's a great way to keep people up to date. I *will* be reading, so don't complain about your annoying studio mates, ok? xoxoxo

  2. I, too, will be reading! Cancer has been the grim reaper sitting in my living room for the past 4 years. I promise to help you scream at it and taunt it until it is eradicated from your body. {{{HUG}}}

  3. Hey Kim,

    I want to read and be there reading, anything... I don't know what to say, because you are so f-ing smart and quick and anything i say now feels stupid. fuck.


  4. I'm really glad that you are writing this blog because I can read it and not have to bother you every time I see you to tell me what's going on. How annoying would that be?! Anyway, your awesome and that's all I can say.
