Coming to terms with Endo

Coming to terms with Endo

Endometriosis, I have lived with this disease since I started my period. I have had endo pain since I can remember in my early teen years. I made the mistake of thinking this was normal for women, you know, normal for pain during period and all that. It was terrible, ripping, stabbing, uncontrollable pain that would just wreak havoc on my body monthly and sometimes in between. People told me it was just cramps and you have to deal with…

Rattlesnake Ledge

Rattlesnake Ledge

  That was where we started. That peak up there on the right is where we are heading to, the taller of the two peaks that is. Known as Rattlesnake Ledge. Apparently it is a popular hiking trail to Washingtonians but I didn’t know that till I researched it.    Tuesday night I told Mark we were going to do this. You should have seen his body language! He was not looking forward to it, apparently he didn’t have good experiences…

Took a walk down a regretful road.

Took a walk down a regretful road.

Today I was overcome with regrets. Overcome with the regret that I wish I could have been the person I am now 5 years ago. Five years ago I was just starting at Northwest University to finish all the prerequisites I had for nursing school. I wish I was who I am today then. I would have had a green house garden in my dorm room been a stricter vegetarian with stricter regulations for myself, I would have ignored dating…

Winter is coming!

Winter is coming!

Hello my few readers, It was summer, I don’t necessarily like to SIT in the summer time and blog. Life has been fine. I have been adjusting to a new position at work, new house, new dog, and new schedule. It has a been a little crazy! I am still cooking, gardening, cleaning, organizing, creating, and overall being me. I’ve been cooking pot pies, shepherd’s pies, squashes, quiche, pizookies, breads, chili rellenos (let me tell you those were FUN to…

A Feast the Kids Will Remember

A Feast the Kids Will Remember

I don’t have many pictures of today, but we had a feast to remember today. My mother is a huge gardener and today we devoured the fruits of her labors. She butchered her turkey named, Turkey. She was tasty! I am positive the kids LOVED it at Nana and Poppy’s house. They played croquet with the other kids and of course Poppy. There were a lot of conversations and stories to share. I learned a lot about a family friend…

Misadventures of Toothless River

Misadventures of Toothless River

Well, recently River has been a whole new type of kitten (being a 2-year-old one). She has been friendly, dealing with my antics, and (as shown below) even lets me put hats on her. She does steal my chair and make me sit awkwardly side ways next to her…. because seriously, who is gonna move a cat off the chair! That would just be too easy.   The cats have greatly enjoyed their new playground – the backyard. Badger is…

Blog is finally up and running!

Ok, so there may be some glitching and mess-ups, but Mark and I will discover and work on those. However, he finally set up my blog to be on its own little account. Now I have to start working with the innards and other things. But frankly I was just wanting to post pictures!!!!! BWAH! And now that it is up and running and I have played with it a little bit I have nothing I want to write about….

Dying plants- the experiment.

Dying plants- the experiment.

While we were replanting our potter plants, Katie and I happened upon these little stragglers. I quickly decided to replant them into some jars and see what happens. This evening we all claimed which one we thought would succeed and named it!! Now the journey goes to see which little straggler survives and which ones fail. No, the named plant pets will not be taken care of by their respective claimers. I will in fact be tending to each and…

A Not-So-Lazy Sunday.

A Not-So-Lazy Sunday.

*exhausted* Mark and I are simply exhausted. We annihilated the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, and downstairs rooms…. I cleaned all the kitchen cabinets and the fridge/freezer. We packed so MANY boxes. Mark OCD’ed all over the boxes. We lost a few of our items today though!! We found GROSS mold all along the down stairs closet so we lost some good paintings and decorations 🙁 And maybe destroyed our lungs in the process.   Look at all that grossness!! AH! Also,…

The New Digggggs!

The New Digggggs!

So today Mark and I woke up, had breakfast and immediately started packing our house…. We made a huge dent!  The kitchen is basically empty and our bedrooms are pretty much packed! Mark OCD’ed on all the boxes and organized those. After getting fed up with packing for an hour or two we then decided to head to our house and check out the yard. We of course used Jazzpurr as an excuse to go “check it out” just so…
