Spider Veins Drive me Bonkers, Getting Older is So Overrated

I remember as a teenager, I had once asked my Gram about her legs, it seems spider veins and varicose veins run in the family. I dreaded the idea that one day I will be at an age that my body would respond with spider veins or varicose veins, but it happened. Shortly after giving birth to three children my veins had enough and to this day I suffer from both spider veins and varicose veins. It’s not pretty, but in the Summer time I get out in the sun with some oil to tan so that the darker skin […]

Medical Alert Systems for your Loved Ones

I am sure you all have seen commercials for the medical alert system, what sticks in my mind is those commercials that say “Help I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”, while I am not 100% sure if that commercial is the same product, it is what comes to my mind while writing this. What I love most about the medical alarm devices is that it allows some freedom for our loved ones, as we get older the last thing we probably want to admit is that we are aging and have to have help. I firmly believe that the […]

Sick, Sick and More Sick

You all know it’s not normal for me to not write for a few days. I wasn’t online anywhere since Tuesday because I had some form of a sickness overcome me. You see a few weeks ago I started getting so tired and sleepy that I could barely stay awake. Then I went to the river with my friend, her kids and my kids on Tuesday, then back to her house. We had a good time for only a short period of time. I do recall waking up feeling like my throat was a bit sore but I just assumed […]

My Daughter’s School Eye Exam Leads To Eye Doctor Visit

My daughter had never been to a normal eye doctor, she has only received the eye exams her pediatrician gives her each year as well as the one that is done in school each year. This was the year that her exam from school came back as concerning and we had to take her to an eye doctor. So we scheduled an appointment for Miss Ki to get her eyes checked. The eye doctor said for sure she needed glasses.  Her vision is 20/50 in her right eye and 20/70 in her left eye, or at least somewhere near those […]

Ever Thought About Breast Augmetation

If you all know me then you know I have a big chest, top heavy so to speak but since I haven’t been working out lately the pounds are catching up on my tummy area. I have discussed breast augmetation with other moms, even joking with another mom that she can have my “extra” for her breast implants. I have always had larger than your average breasts and someday I may learn to accept them but for now I tell people who want to enlarge their breasts what it’s like to have most men never look at your eyes first.

Family Genes; Thanks Inheritance

It seems my son Aj has inherited most of the “bad” genes in the families. This boy has sensitive skin, eczema, psoriasis, and the mood disorders that run in the families.  The one good gene or characteristic Aj has is that he has an extremely high pain tolerance. This kid will not tell you he got hurt unless he is bleeding, if he is bleeding and tells you about it, he is angry about the blood – not in pain. I have to laugh because I am a big baby about pain, except tattoos and piercings, those never hurt me, […]

Heading For Surgery

My four year old will have surgery done today, this child has had more things that he needs done than any of my other two children and today is anesthesia, although he went under this for his tubes in ears at age 2 I had a hard time with it.     I held him while they put the mask over his head and he kicked then fell limp in my arms, I have tears in eyes just thinking about it. It was devastating to have that feeling so I think this time Daddy can go in, I can’t bear […]

Comfy Medical Scrubs For All

Yes, I have told you all before long ago that I worked as a film librarian at a hospital in a couple towns over from where I live now and I loved that job because I could get away with wearing medical uniform pants and things like hot pink scrubs. I rarely was seen by patients and so it wasn’t required that I wear such things but in all reality it was a dirty job where I got dirt on me all day from the x-ray films and basement where the older x-rays were stored so why wear my awesome […]
