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.

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.

I refuse to become a pessimist. Even though I have been shocked and disappointed by people I loved and respected over the last couple of years... Even though my heart has broken over lost friendships and lost people. I refuse to change my "Pollyanna"/believe the best in people attitude just so I won't be heartbroken… Continue reading I refuse.
I’m not going to lie. The last two days have been rough. Reality of our new normal setting in. I haven’t stepped foot in any kind of store or restaurant in over a week and I likely won’t be allowed to for a very long time. My daughter just found out she will be out… Continue reading It’s going to be okay.
I know. The last thing the world needs is MORE NOISE right now. Don't worry... I'm not here to debate or say anything negative. ALSO, as always, I'm not a doctor (shocker!) and anything I say here is simply my experience. PLEASE talk to your doctor... Or follow the guidelines found on the CDC or… Continue reading COVID-19 and living with Multiple Sclerosis
