The Yin and Yang of it All

Life is full of balance.  There are ups, there are downs, and there’s lots in between.  Yesterday I had some friends over in the morning.  We are all in our last semester of nursing school together, and because we are all so busy, we don’t get to see each other in person very much.  One […]

Big Wheels Keep on Turnin’

Are you singing Proud Mary yet? Yes? Good. Sometimes life smacks you in a way that makes you take a huge step back and say Whoa.  Little trickles of things can suddenly start an avalanche so quickly. When I first started my journey in muscle disease (because let’s face it, Harry has his journey but I […]

I conquered the dreadmill!

Well, I certainly didn’t conquer it, but I did successfully use it to work out.  I’ve run on treadmills before but at around 30 minutes or so I can’t go on, no matter how slow I’ve been going.  My friends who do 8, 10, or more miles on the treadmill make me want to bow […]

Giving Thanks!

I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was full of family and delicious food! Harry and I had a great day, although the little man refused to nap.  Even without proper sleep, he was a great little boy and only ended up in time out once!  We are in a “throw everything on the floor” stage, so that’s […]
