A Kick in the Pants

Sometimes things come up just when you need to see them and today is one of those days. This morning I read a blog post from one of my favourite bloggers (Meg from bbhwithms) that really kicked me in the butt. I like to think I am doing well managing my MS, but I now realize…

Win Taste and Show Banana Bread & 2 Months Away!

Well, exciting stuff is just on the horizon! We are getting ready to head out for 2 months in our trailer…..eek!  If I’m going to be honest, I’m more than a little nervous about it. We are going to try our hand at being a snowbird.  For those who don’t know what a snowbird is,…

A day in the life

The type of MS that I was initially diagnosed with in 2005 is RRMS (relapsing remitting) which means that there are attacks when my symptoms flare up called a relapse.  These relapses can be extreme (I had double vision for over a month in one relapse and at another time, I lost use of my…

Traveling Tribe and Pickle Soup

A couple of weeks before my recent vacation to Mexico, I grew anxious. Not about crime, the effect of travel on my MS or about my travel partners, but from the guilt of taking a trip itself. This was the worst kind of remorse: mother’s guilt, wife guilt, etc. Guilt because my husband was working away…

Up, Up and Away!

I have spent the last week packing and unpacking my suitcase for a girls trip to Mexico. I’m sure I have twice as many clothes as I need, but at least I won’t have to go naked. I can’t tell you how excited I am for this trip with friends that I have known for over 40 years…..you…

Life is Short

You never know when it is your time, but it sure doesn’t seem fair when someone is taken away far too early. You feel like you just aren’t finished with that person, there is so much left to do, to explore, times that you still need to laugh and cry with them.  You question why? …

Really Stupid Laws & Ham, Cheese & Egg Cups

Confession time, I’ve been kind of tired this last week. I usually find that the week before I receive my Disease Modifying Drug for my MS, that happens so when it does, I just find some mindless surfing is about all I’m good for and this post is the result of that…..Don’t worry, I will…

I’ve been on a binge!

I have been binge watching This is Us, so please forgive me for being kind of sappy. I actually avoided watching the show because I knew it was an emotional family drama and I don’t really need to listen or watch somebody else’s family drama, yet here I am watching it and now I am…

My MS Diagnosis – Part 2 & Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake Jars

This may be a bit long, but its the story, so what can I say? I promise you will be happy with the yummy recipe at the end! Can I share a secret with you?  There is something terrifying about having your first MRI scan, at least for me there was. It was then that I…

My MS Diagnosis Story – Part 1

Putting my entire MS diagnosis story up on my blog is a bit out of my comfort zone and I have been debating with myself for a while about whether or not to do it. In the end, I decided that if my story can help someone else, then it’s worth putting it out there for…

Coincidence or Serendipity?

“To the rational mind, nothing is inexplicable, only unexplained.” Something  very strange happened to me a couple of weeks ago and I can’t for the life of me figure it out. It’s left me wondering about a higher power out there we don’t know or understand. Whatever it was, I am thankful to say the least….
