LIFE AS I KNOW IT…

Just like everyone else, I am adjusting to the ‘new normal’ in this COVID-19 world.  It’s interesting.  And heartbreaking.  And scary.  And exhausting. There are millions of people providing their insight and fears and ideas during this time.  So, I’m not going there.  Honestly – I’m sick and tired of the whole darned thing.  I […]

TO MY DAUGHTER

You and I have been through a lot over the years. It has been me-n-you since you were barely a year old. Look at you now – a 26 year old, a grown-up, an adult, a mother of two, a wife!

THROUGH A CHILD’S EYES

Journey Down Memory Lane & Back

Mixed emotions.  That is what I have been experiencing lately.  Like a roller-coaster, up on minute, down the next.  Funny how going down memory lane can bring back emotions as if you were back in that time.  It kind of wears you out to be up one moment and then deeply saddened in the very […]

Bittersweet Life Events

Lots of things have taken place of late (since March).  All have been quite emotional and has taken me on quite the journey of soul-searching and learning. Without notice, my employer laid several people off – and I was included in that group.  My supervisor called me while I was on vacation to break the […]

Life Experiences: Fibromyalgia & Fibro Fog

Many people have never heard of Fibromyalgia.  Some have heard of it but have no idea of what it is.  Some people know that it means you have chronic pain – but that is all they know.  Some don’t believe it even exists…. I remember the day my doctor finally said that he believed I […]

Can You Believe It Is 2014?!

It’s 2014…..can you believe it!?  Another year has flown by already.  This year will mark many changes for me – some of them will be bittersweet. I’m not one to do New Year’s resolutions or anything like that – for me it has always simply been a new number on the calendar and that was […]
