Chronic-Girl Crafts / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

Welcome friends.  I told you I had been working on a project.  For the last couple of weeks I’ve been busy making décor for my new coffee bar.  This area had previously been a place where random papers and garbage and tools and mail and everything else collected.  Now it is a beautiful coffee bar, not to mention I have more counter space too! Ok, onto the pictures. First I did a fun coffee painting that would […]

Big Medical Words / Deep Thoughts About POTS / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

A couple days ago I had two appointments.  Not my favorite, but at least I only had to get all ready and leave the house once. First up, falcon doctor (also known as nutraceutical and genetic doctor).  Sad news, he is currently falcon-less.  I asked where Mr. Fritz was and he said, “He’s gone.  He took off for the ladies.  Bros before hoes man.  He totally broke bro-code.”  That’s a direct quote, obviously.  He makes me […]

I’m Doing a Thing- Slowly

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

A valuable lesson I’ve learned since this whole POTS diagnosis and life change is this: to see growth, we must look at a larger section of time.  Everything is trickier and harder and takes longer.  Even the POTS specialist I saw said I could gradually add minutes onto my recumbent biking over years.  He said the word ‘years’.  That should have struck me at the time as just how slow any change happens with my […]

Watch My Latest Painting Come to Life

For my most recent painting, I did something kind of fun.  I took pictures of it in each phase along the way so you could watch it come to life. I had a custom order and was given a picture to paint.  The picture wasn’t very bright, but had a gorgeous layer of fog in the background floating over an old church.  Like always I used acrylic paint.  The main colors I used were raw […]

Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Physical Therapy & Exercise

Well my six-week health challenge officially ended. Here is my workout board I used to log my workouts.  Each little colored square is an exercise I did.  That’s a LOT for this allergic-to-heart-rate-raising-activities girl! Here are my thoughts and results from the challenge: I am super proud of myself for being pretty strong with food choices (I gave up coffee creamer for six weeks!) and also working out as much as I did. After a couple […]

If you didn’t put that cryptic title together, I’ll help you.  We got a snowmobile.  Nothing fancy, just an old machine that works enough to haul us around. That husband of mine is always looking out for me.  Yes some could see this recent purchase as a toy for him, but honestly he did get this for me to be able to get around a bit on our property in the snow. With our newest […]

Big Medical Words / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This / Uncategorized

In December I had pink eye, which was really annoying.  It took forever to go away, which was really annoying.  Then my vision remained blurry forever more, which was really annoying. I called a couple weeks ago and made an appointment.  Today was appointment day. Personal Victory: For the first time in my life I was brave enough to do the air puff in the eye test. I finished the rest of the pre-testing then […]

Funny Farm Stuff / Hold My Gatorade and Watch This

Hi friends.  Today I built a fire and narrated it with my Snapchat account.  Those who received it, seemed to enjoy it so I thought I should share with y’all.  I don’t know if this technically falls in my category funny farm stuff or hold my Gatorade and watch this.  A little of both I guess. I spy a Hero puppy… I suppose you could use something else too if you wanted. One of my […]

Hello friends.  The last few days have included some more winter prep around our house.  We ordered a custom snow plow blade to be attached to our tractor to make snow removal easier.  We went to pick it up a couple days ago.  It was about a five hour drive round trip.  My body actually held up pretty well.  I was pretty tired at the end of it, but I did a lot better than I […]
