I have "parasthesia". That is the technical term for neurological issues that cause numbness, pain and tingling in the limbs. They gave it a word because telling a patient, "I have no clue why your body is doing this" isn't very reassuring. I've been dealing with this for a couple... Continue reading

In our family, we love animals. There are also a lot of allergies in our little family so our pets have to be as hypoallergenic as possible. Over the years, I have had 6 rabbits, a mouse, 6 guinea pigs, several Betta splendens, a gerbil and two Siamese. Andrew had... Continue reading

I've wanted to write so many things, and I've just not had time. Today I have something I neeeed to express and fortunately I have a little bit of "free" time. Last night Andrew reacted out of anger in a way that was so hard for me to swallow...I was... Continue reading

The "busy season" is upon us. Gus is working 6 days a week, sometimes 12 hours a day. I've got girls 4 days a week at varying hours, and then there's the boys. It's hard to balance our obligations, chores, desired activities, play time, and enough time to sleep. Something... Continue reading

So, after 5 months of talking to people at the medical financial office, faxing various documentation, having letters submitted from my doctor, twice, I was still in limbo as the ever mysterious "They" decided whether I was worthy of financial assistance. Then the medical office called one morning while Gus... Continue reading

Why? Why? WHY? Why are soo many Christians so condemning, judgemental and full of preconceived notions? Oh, it is so frustrating!! Didn't Jesus tell us to love our neighbor Doesn't it say in the New Testament that they'll "know you're Christians by your love?" What has happened? You're right, there... Continue reading

I think it's safe to say we all know that I've been through a lot in my 36 years of life. Some of the stuff I've been through makes it hard to trust, especially someone in authority. Fortunately I've pretty much gotten rid of all "authority" figures in my life.... Continue reading

Oh goodness!! There is and has been so much going on! Some days I just want to step away, climb back into my bed and take a nap. But that's not always an option now, is it? Oh well. Andrew has become part of a thing at school where the... Continue reading

The day started off at 6:50 am. There was no school, and I turned of the boy's alarm clock the night before so they could sleep in a bit. But the little buggers didn't sleep in at all...in fact they got up earlier than a regular school day! Why do... Continue reading

As a family, we really are no different than most others. Gus and I are parents who love our children, who are working almost every day a week to put food on the table and pay the bills. Our boys are intelligent and beautiful, and dealing with their own growing... Continue reading

Well, I was hoping to avoid this stage of life for Andrew, but alas we have dived in head-first. This year alone he has had several incidences with other students where there have been physical confrontations, verbal issues, and near-extortion. But today...today takes the cake. Andrew was openly defiant to... Continue reading

Okay, I read and article today that made me think of a friend, that made me think that perhaps there are many out there who are struggling with something that I might be able to help with: stocking your pantry, freezer, fridge and laundry/cleaning room for dirt-stinkin' cheap. Let's start... Continue reading

We have always said, half jokingly, that Andrew was born angry and in charge. When he was 1 day old and needed to learn to nurse he had his own ideas about how things would be done and the nurse, myself, Gus and my mother-in-law were baffled as we tried... Continue reading

Have you ever had one of those? It's like a bad/good/bad/so-so day, and it's only 2:30! I got up and got the boys off to school, Gus and I enjoyed coffee together, I took a little nap, got ready and went out to do some needed errands. I brought Bailey... Continue reading

Okay, many of you may think I'm absolutely nuts, but Andrew's lizard is the coolest little critter! I know a lot of people who are really creeped out by lizards and all things cold-blooded. This little lizard does have scales and tiny claws, she does flick her tongue out to... Continue reading

Every one has struggles that they are dealing with. To you or me some of these struggles might seem, I don't know...trivial perhaps. But the person dealing with them probably does not feel that their struggles are trivial. Those troubles are real and important to them. There are others who... Continue reading

I'm exhausted. I've been up and down and it's not because of meds or illness or whatever. I can't find peace with or figure out what is going on. Too much in too short a time period. It would be nice to rest for a while...a long while... Anxiety freak-outs,... Continue reading

I had an awesome coffee date with a new friend today. She is an amazing woman, so funny and witty, and such a treasure! We shared laughs and tears, and I know that I have made a true new friend in her. She's beautiful, and her daughter has her beauty,... Continue reading

I have a relative who is totally into vitamins and holistic healing and that sort. She was complaining of an upset tummy, saying she had taken some things for it but her tummy was still upset. Gus offered Pepto if she needed it, to which she made a scoffing noise... Continue reading

I believe that each of us is gifted with inherent abilities and talents. Some can sew (my Mom could sew anything!) Some can bake amazing masterpieces (Marianne, maybe you should look into that bakery??), some make jewelry, or amazing meals, some have the patience of saints and work with children,...

So many things running through my head right now, so many things I want to say. But where to start? Do I start with Andrew? Or Christmas? Or my concerns about Dad? Do I tell the stories and share the memories about those I'm missing, not only at Christmas, but... Continue reading

I've lost something. Well, not something, someone. I lost this person many years ago, and one day tripped across him thanks to the miracle of social networking. But this person's life became very troubled, through no fault of their own, and now I simply have no idea where they are.... Continue reading
