Not a lot to report today. I worked from home, scheduled my appointment with my surgeon for the lumpectomy, and started decorating for Christmas 🎄 ♥️. Christmas 2020 has begun. I also got my first text from my contact tracer and had to answer a symptom checklist. Speaking of symptoms, still symptom free today. Here… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 5
Today has been beautiful outside. We began the morning with another run. This time the girls, Bethany and Rosie, joined us! Then we enjoyed online worship. Then we sat outside for a loooong time. My mom dropped us off some treats and I was able to talk to her from a distance! Thankful to see… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 4
Today has been the best day. Sure... it stinks to celebrate your birthday in the middle of a pandemic, while being COVID positive and under order to isolate from my family and others, but I don't know that it could have been any better. Well, a huge hug from Brian and the kids and hanging… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 3
Today is my wedding anniversary. Thankfully, Brian and I went out for a fancy dinner last Saturday, but we had planned to take off today to have a little day date together. We were planning to do some shopping and having lunch in our little town. Instead the morning began with me isolated in our… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 2
So, this happened today. You may have some questions... let me try to answer them: Do you have any symptoms? No. Not as of 5:00 pm on October 29, 2020 :). Why did you get tested? I had two positive exposures. It was recommended that I get rapid tested just to be safe. Why are… Continue reading COVID Chronicles-Day 1
Later this month, I will celebrate a birthday. A big one. I will be turning 40-years-old. My last year in my 30s has reminded me I'm not as young as I used to be. I now have regular hot flashes and my body takes longer to recover after activity. I can get sore from simply… Continue reading I’m turning 40…
***DISCLAIMER*** This post details the specifics of my personal weight loss journey. If weight is a triggering subject for you, please consider skipping this post. A healthy relationship with food is something many of us have had to fight for and I would never want anything I say to cause you harm. And as I… Continue reading Let’s get real…
I see you... mom who chose to let her 3 year old wear a sun dress and snow boots to church this morning. And I applaud you for picking your battles. (And giving me an awesome chuckle.) I see you... lady that seems to be always walking the neighborhood with your headphones on. I am… Continue reading I see you…
How can it feel like this year has lasted 1000 months and flown by at the same time? My last check-up with my neurologist was in February, right before COVID and quarantine hit our state. That visit was a little disheartening and dramatic as we learned about a potential pituitary tumor (thankfully after a look… Continue reading JCV Negative and MS Check-Up!
It’s been a year, am I right? For all of us. I think once this is alllllllllll over (LORD, Jesus... please let there be an end to all this!) we won’t soon forget struggles of 2020. For me, this year began with such fresh hope. 2019 kicked my butt. I remember texting my dear friend… Continue reading Let’s cut ourselves some slack.
