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…

Dear Little One

Well, we are 2 days away from a brand-new baby entering our family.  Our oldest daughter is set to deliver by cesarean on Wednesday and I can’t help but be so excited and anxious about his arrival (that’s right, it’s a boy)!  I’m not anxious in a nervous way, I am anxious in a “I…

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? …

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 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….

Rules I Live By & Low Carb Bagels

Throughout our lives, we’ve been given a hefty dose of advice and “words of wisdom” from our friends, family and anyone else who just feels like they should chime in and I have to admit, I’ve been one of those people. I mean, who hasn’t?  Some of the advice is good but some of it…

World MS Day

I’ve been MIA the past 3 weeks because I have been dealing with a very painful relapse of my MS, but thanks to some heavy duty steroids and some much needed rest and relaxation, I am slowly recovering, and it seems fitting that I am back at it today. So today, in honor of World…

Happy Anniversary

Today is our anniversary and life lately has been hectic to say the least. So I wanted to push pause on the usual blog content to let my husband know just how important he is (as he is working away) to me and the amazing impact he has had on my life.  On May 13,…

Low Carb & Gluten Free Butterfinger Bars ~Game On!!

I’m in a bit of a quandary………I have a yearly MRI for my MS and I got the reminder call today for an appointment next week in Victoria.  Now Victoria is a beautiful place and I love to go there to spend a few days, but it is a 3-4 hour drive each way and…
