Bachelorette Recaps / Uncategorized

Well, I took to Facebook to see who might be interested if I took the time to recap the bachelorette with my sarcastic thoughts.  More people said they were interested than not so I suppose I’ll take a crack at it this season. Now listen: if you don’t like the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows and don’t watch them, feel free to just not read these here recaps, ok? We start off the episode by taking about a […]

Deep Thoughts About POTS / Uncategorized

Ah, today.  Let me walk you through my day and show how all of these seemingly tiny moments can add up to cause a problem. First up.  I had a doctor’s appointment at 2:30.  One of those ‘your appointment is at 2:30, but be here at 2:15 to check in because most people are late even though you have never been late’ kind of appointments. I showed up at 2:11.  My official appointment time was […]

Tuesday Things / Uncategorized

I took a few months off from writing my Tuesday Things blogs, but I’ve been having some requests for them again.  I write mostly for you, but a little bit for me too.  Either way, here are some fantastic Tuesday Things for today. How to Pick the Perfect Nude Lipstick Color I’m not making this up.  Apparently it was mentioned recently on the TV show The Doctors that the perfect color of nude lipstick for […]

I did too many things for too many days in a row.  I’m now in the middle of several days with nothing planned and only rest.  Sometimes I forget that all little activities add up.  Going to my moms to hang out for a couple hours is the same as a workout to others.  Even just getting ready and meeting someone in a parking lot to buy or sell something is too much if I […]

If you watched my latest live video on Chronic Illness on the Mighty’s Facebook page, then you might have heard me mention sex coffee.  Basically this is just a delicious drink that supports and enhances sex drive. First off, I didn’t make this recipe, I found it on yourtango.com The ingredients each have a component to increase sexual desire and libido.  The secret ingredient is an adaptogenic herb, Maca, which is an Aztec root known […]

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 […]

  We returned home Monday from a weekend of spring break fun at the ranch.  It was a lovely little getaway.  One of the benefits of going there is that the dogs can come too and oh boy do they have fun.  They have been asleep since we got home I’m pretty sure. I said a weekend of firsts because I’m pretty sure we each did something new. Carter learned to play CLUE.  I loved playing […]

Smile Makers / Uncategorized

Welcome to Spring.  I’m pretty glad to see it.  Look, don’t get me wrong; I LOVE winter, but even I thought it was a long winter. **Sidenote: what do you call these purple wild flowers?  Where I grew up they were always called Purple Eyed Grass, but my husband grew up knowing them as Soldier’s Spears.** I wanted to switch up the design of my blog a bit.  (Note: I don’t make money blogging, it’s […]

Goats Don’t Get a Lollipop or a Sticker

So unfair.  It’s hard to be a goat on doctor day, but there is one plus; the vet comes to your house and you don’t have to go out. Earlier this week our goats had their yearly checkups.  They were very interested in what the veterinarian had and what she was doing until it involved poking them. We are thinking about breeding Maizy, which means that all three of the girls need to be tested […]

Pretend Good News

Big Medical Words / Uncategorized

Don’t get your hopes up.  This isn’t actually good news; it’s just pretend good news. I got my first denial.  In a way I feel like I fit in a little bit more better with my other chronic illness friends now. Yes, I still have social security disability.  I was working to also access my retirement fund since they have a ‘disability retirement’ option.  Since I’m fully disabled according to the social security people, I […]
