A Visit From the Priority Fairy

Bobby Pins & Bullets / Deep Thoughts About POTS / Uncategorized

What’s that, you ask?  A Priority Fairy is someone I just made up, but I am pretty sure it could be real.  Do you ever have a moment when something just immediately strikes you and you make a huge realization, or things are just put into perspective clearly? The Priority Fairy recently struck in my house.  Allow me to share. One thing that has remained the same since before my diagnosis is our bedtime routine.  […]

Excuse Me While I Brag a Little

The overwhelmingly popular attitude to have lately is the ‘we hate those nasty cops’ attitude.  I’m unique though and therefore I don’t buy into the trendy and hip things. I am old fashioned a bit and believe in reserving judgement for each individual human.  Oh, and I happen to be married to one officer. I could write a book about my opinions, but today I’m going to write a semi-short blog post only.  At least that is […]

“Snapchat That”

It’s no big secret that my husband thinks Snapchat is ridiculous, stupid, and as he says is only used by ‘drug dealers, prostitutes, 14 year old girls, and teachers sending nudes to students’  (apparently that happened I guess, Eeek).  Anyways, he fails to see how it could be funny or entertaining between friends, although to be fair, he does work in a field where he predominately sees it used in criminal ways. Anyways, if I’m […]

My Nicholas Sparks

Those of you close to me are aware that my husband likes to read Nicholas Sparks books.  I’ve watched people try to make fun of him for it, but he always quickly shuts them down by pointing out that his books are basically a complete guidebook for romance, which is true. Who doesn’t want to come home to love notes on the mirror,  or on random objects throughout the house?  I picked up a deck […]

Romance in the Midst of Chronic Illness

I recently read the following question on a chronic illness facebook page: “For everyone out there with an other half, how do you keep relationship going even on your worst days?” Ironically and completely unrelated to this page, someone on twitter with a chronic illness posted recently saying that she was thankful for her full time caregiver, her husband, however that he had decided that he could no longer be her husband as it was too much […]

The Men in My House- A Glimpse of My Life

Disclaimer: language and inappropriateness and hilariousness. If you know my husband or any of his friends, you know how incredibly true this video is.  Also, it makes me laugh pretty hard.  If you have a uniformed man living in your house something tells me you can find a way to relate. Once upon a time my husband was explaining to a few of our law enforcement friends about how I had a stalker years prior.  I can’t […]

That Time We Killed Zombies

Two years ago today we killed zombies.  Another perfect entry for my bobby pins and bullets category. My husband and I (fiancé at the time) were preparing for our wedding and had met with our photographer.  All of the photography packages that they offer come with an engagement session.  We didn’t really see the need so asked if we could trade it in and get extra photos or extra time on wedding day.  They said […]

2 Years Ago Today…

A couple years ago Tom and I went on a much needed little getaway to the Oregon Coast.  We did the typical tourist things, and the Amy and Tom things like eating Chinese food at 10 pm the night we got there and watching Family Guy.   Tom had told me before we even left for this trip to not be expecting a proposal and that it would not be while we were in Oregon.  He just […]
