Late night, quick post. Everyone is sick! Tummy cramps, gas, bloating, pressure in bowels, constipation, head aches, cold and clammy. It came on rather suddenly, to all 3 kids, just after dinner time. They did help clean up and got to watch a movie together, but after that, there was moaning and groaning. So we… Read More Quarantine Day #72 – And now everyone is sick . . . 🤦🏻♀️
So, this is a bit ironic. But while the rest of the world seems to be hoarding food, we are trying to use up all of our food. It seems strange, but it is for a wise purpose. I just find the timing to be truly ironic!! But I must celebrate today because we had… Read More Elimination of Food Storage
Good morning! (Really, it’s the afternoon, but I’m just now having a late brunch). 🤫 I’ve started a new morning routine, over the past 2 months, that I am really enjoying. It starts with my own morning prayers, and then I go into “study mode.” I do some strength exercises, a yoga class, I meditate… Read More New Morning Routine
I’ve been radio silent too long. What is the use of a blog if I don’t use it to share the lows, as well as the highs? I have been trying to come up with easy ways to blog lately. Simple ways . . . Like sharing a favorite snack I have been enjoying during… Read More Coronavirus- Day #53

Well, we did it!!! I am so thankful to have this week completed. For me, this 1st week wasn’t as bad as I have experienced in the past. But for my daughters, I didn’t know if they were going to make it. Thankfully, they did!!! The hard moments came from not knowing what would taste… Read More Low FODMAP- Week 1!
Okay. If you know me, I go radio silent when I’m overwhelmed or feeling not well. It’s just what I do. But now that my doctor’s visit is tomorrow, I thought I’d quickly recap the experience and then share what we are onto next. After my colonoscopy, I wasn’t happy (not one bit) to be… Read More Crazy Update & Low FODMAP Day 1 & 2
Well, I did it! It’s over and done with and I have to say, it wasn’t that bad. 😅 Seriously folks. I’m a worry wart, to put it bluntly. I don’t feel comfortable in hospital or medical atmospheres, especially when the patient has to walk into the procedure room and can see all the medical… Read More Colonoscopy Day!
Good morning! ☀️ I thought I would share my experience last night, just so the information can be more clear. I have my scheduled colonoscopy and GI scope at 10:45. I have 45 minutes of driving to get to my appointment. So I have 40 more minutes to get the rest of this gunk out… Read More Today’s the Day!
Sorry I haven’t written for a few days. I was on a much needed holiday with family who are visiting from the States. They invited us to join them, and their 3 children, to watch mother turtles bury their eggs in the sandy beaches of Ostinal, Costa Rica. It was a fascinating experience for all… Read More Ready, Set, Go!
