Share Your World: May 29, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! What is the most famous landmark or building you have ever seen? I have no idea. I’ve been to Europe, the U.K., Ireland, and all over the U.S. I’ve seen more famous landmarks than I could probably name. But if I had to pick one, even though I have an intense…

Maybe This Time…

Maybe This Time…

There are many days on the calendar that are a challenge for infertile women. Christmas for sure, when all you want is to see the new little stocking hanging with the others for the first time. Halloween is despised, as you throw up your hands at seeing one more infant in a cuddly, warm lion costume. (Last year I sat in the bedroom with earphones on while my husband passed out the candy.) But there is no holiday out there…

Share Your World- March 27, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)? My first name, no. My middle name is my mother’s first name (same with my brother; his middle name is my father’s first name.) Music or silence while working? It really depends on what…

Share Your World- March 13, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? Not usually. There was one particular elevator at work where the buttons wouldn’t light up when you pushed the button on the second floor, so sometimes I would push it more than once…just in…

Share Your World- January 30, 2017

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this! What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person? The Grand Canyon. I traveled there with family in 2013. We hiked all the way to the bottom and stayed at Phantom Ranch. Getting out was a bit of a disaster for me, but that’s another story for…

We Wish You A Spoon-ful Christmas!

We Wish You A Spoon-ful Christmas!

Now that Christmas has come and gone, I suppose it’s time to be like everyone else and write about it! I’ll start with Christmas Eve, since that’s when all the action started. The day began quite horribly. I was still wearing the Holter monitor, and it’s a good thing too, because I was extremely symptomatic. I have never had to try so hard in my life to get off the couch. A lot of it was because I hated the…

How to Support a Loved One Who Has Endometriosis

How to Support a Loved One Who Has Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a challenging disease. Not only is it poorly understood in the medical arena, but most people in general have never even heard of it. Yet it affects 1 in 10 women worldwide and can take up to ten years, or longer, to be properly diagnosed. Symptoms can be debilitating, and women may have to endure multiple surgeries to find relief. The gold standard and best treatment available, surgical excision, is challenging for many women to have access to….

A Therapeutic Thanksgiving: Coming Home

A Therapeutic Thanksgiving: Coming Home

Last Thursday was Thanksgiving here in America. The real, official start of the holiday season. No one can deny it’s too early for Christmas music any longer! After barely managing to drag myself out of bed Wednesday afternoon, David and I headed to my hometown, a four-hour drive away. Having not been there since May, I was very much looking forward to it. Luckily we had good weather and made good time, despite needing to stop at a rest stop…

Prayers for Haiti

Prayers for Haiti

As Hurricane Matthew bears down on Haiti and Cuba tonight, I would like to ask all my followers for prayers or happy thoughts or whatever positive energy you would like to send for the people there, especially to those in Haiti. Matthew currently is a strong category 4 hurricane with winds of 145 mph with pressure dropped to 933 mb, indicating further strengthening is imminent. This storm will prove to be catastrophic for Haiti. The country was hit by four…
