My New Chicken Barn

Bobby Pins & Bullets / Funny Farm Stuff / Uncategorized

The week of Valentine’s day Tom and I made a down payment on a fantastic little barn with the understanding that we would pay the second half once the owners helped us disassemble the barn, move it to our house, and reassemble it on our property.  A few weeks ago we completed the project and moved the chickens into their new mansion.  They are quite happy in their new home. I put together a few […]

New POTS Research

Big Medical Words / Uncategorized

Last week electrophysiologist.  This week neurologist.  Both relatively uneventful with the exception of some news from my neurologist. He starts out appointments pretty much the same way each time.  He enters the room saying, “do you have POTS?”  When I answer that yes I do, he usually follows it up with “why do you have POTS?”  That is usually when I throw out some kind of sarcastic or smart ass answer. He handed me a […]

Dancing with the Stars Recaps / Uncategorized

When I heard that DWTS (Dancing with the Stars) was going to run an athletes only season I was really excited.  I was far less excited to find out it is a mini season with only four weeks.  Although, it will be super competitive and move quickly so that does interest me a bit. A few days ago the pros were announced and that doesn’t matter for me as long as I know that Sharna […]

Tilly Girl Tom and I were outside the other day working hard on another project around the farm (to be featured in a blog soon hopefully).  We let the goats out to graze and play while we were outside.  Miss Tilly was acting super weird.  Standing by herself and just staring off into the distance.  She didn’t graze with the other goats.  She was standing pressing her head against the house.  Poor little baby was […]

Something out of Nothing

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

Tonight I thought I’d send out a little blog about making something out of nothing, hence the title.  I’m off to a great start. Look, we’ve all been there; a day or two or eight late on grocery shopping.  In all honesty I haven’t been feeling up to going to town anyways.  My dizziness has been more than less, I’ve had pretty constant headaches, but worst of all my fatigue has been huge.  It could […]

You don’t know what it’s like living on the West coast.  We have to avoid social media for three hours leading up to the Bachelor if we want to avoid spoilers.  Y’all should have to do it some time, East Coast. Anywho, Chris Harrison promised us that tonight all of our questions will be answered.  I don’t know if that’s true though.  I have deep questions.  Why didn’t Becca stab him in the neck?  Has […]

Cusco, Peru.  Alpacas everywhere.  It’s the perfect place to be proposed to.  Becca is committed.  Nothing about her is a mystery.  Lauren is still reserved or possibly mute.  He’s been peeling back the layers all season. It’s time to meet Arie’s family.  Lauren is first.  She’s nervous and quiet, but she is wearing a super cute slouchy sweater so I have a good feeling.  The whole family hasn’t been together since little brother’s wedding in […]

We’re down to three, folks.  Welcome to Peru. Kendall’s Date First up, Kendall.  They explore some sand dunes and ride in a dune buggy.  They have what she described as a “sandpaper kiss”.  Awww?  They have a picnic in the sand and eat something that I can’t tell what is.  That night at a tiki hut they eat more things I can’t tell what are.  She says she has so many things to ask him and […]

“It’s been such an amazing journey so far.” – Arie That’s double points because he included amazing and journey.  Drink up, friends! Kendall’s Hometown- L.A.

My DVR says this is episode seven, and I suppose it can count.  The preview is mostly just tears.  Everyone is crying.  I can’t wait. The gang is in Tuscany, Pisa to be exact. “Why do you think it’s leaning?” Overheard while they visit the leaning tower of Pisa. Chris Harrison arrives to deliver the news.  No rose ceremony this week because there are three one-on-ones and a group date.  Each of the four roses […]
