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…

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…

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? …

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…

One of my biggest mommy fails

There is no denying that I dropped the ball once again.  I’m not talking about dropping the ball when you are playing second base and the game is on the line, which I have done as well.  I am talking about dropping the “parenting” ball.  Have you ever done something that you know is wrong…

My Patriotic Dad and Avocado Prawn Cholula Salad

Let me start by saying that this is NOT a political post, so lets don’t go there.  I WILL say that I believe you can be patriotic without being political and vice versa – that’s all I’m going to say!  As you know, since I lost my dad over a year ago, I decided the…

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…

6 Month Check Up & No Churn Ice Cream

How am I doing with my New Year’s strategies and my word for 2018?  I developed my 2018 life strategies and my word for the year to continue to boost my well-being and physical health. So how’s that going for me you ask? I decided that now that we are 6 months in to 2018, I should ask…
