Night Shift Crazies

After three overnights in a row this week, I have a case of the night shift crazies!  I’m sure my body just needs to get used to it, but for now I’m just delirious!  I’ve started my preceptorship and am thoroughly enjoying it, but I do need to adjust.  It’s hard with Harry not to […]

Trying to Hang on to that Wave

Some times things happen when you’re least expecting them.  I’ve been so distracted lately with visitors, traveling, and preparing for the end of my semester/getting ready for preceptorship, graduation, and moving on to my BSN.  Monday morning was catch up from traveling because I worked on Sunday, but Harry and I still had to go […]

The Australians Come to Visit

Sorry for the delay in posting, but it’s been quite crazy around here!  We are on the road right now on the way back from Michigan, and before that we had our Australian friends visiting for a couple of days!  They have come out to visit us a couple of times now, and we are […]

Hope, Help, and Healing

Yesterday, Harry and I had our weekly visit with our amazing chiropractor, Dr. Tyler Richards.  We always have the nicest conversations, and I always feel physically and mentally better when I leave.  I would highly recommend him, especially for pediatric patients.  He’s got a great bedside manner.  We talked about a lot of things that […]

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 […]

Surprising Success!

Bringing my son to places with other kids his age has long been a source of anxiety for me.  It was only recently that I braved bringing my son to the indoor play area in our local mall.  So when we were invited to a friend’s kid’s birthday party at My Gym (think Gymboree), I […]

What will you get loud about?

Everyone has their own universe they live in.  It’s their reality – what stares them in the face throughout their day.  You can’t compare your reality to someone else’s, and that can be a hard fact to hang on to.  I’ve had my struggles in life and each time I felt guilty about what was […]

The Holidays Stole Me!

I’m back! Whew – what a couple of weeks I’ve had.  Between finals, Christmas, family visiting, my head is spinning!  No complaining here though.  We had an amazing time with my sister visiting from NOLA, family in from Georgia, NYC, Cape Cod, Portugal, and Germany, it was amazing to see everyone.  Some family members haven’t […]

(Mama’s) Santa Meltdown

Every mother who dresses their child in a special outfit to go see the mall Santa knows that there’s a certain amount of pressure.  (Especially if you’re a type A personality like me – everything must…be…perfect!!!)  You figure it could go one of two ways: your child could smile like the cherubic angel they are, or […]
