Creating a mudroom for Fido

Anyone have their own “special” room for your dogs?

With 4 it’s kind of hard to keep their gear in one spot.

Well partly because of the hurricane we have had the house in disarray. We are hopefully going to have repairs started soon. With so many people, not including all 40 schools in our county […]

Can I confide in you?

By |November 13th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

I need to I guess just vent but more than that.

I am struggling, emotionally, mentally… I feel like I have fallen down in a hole of darkness. I still see light but the things I once enjoyed just aren’t as bright.

I wanted to put up Christmas decorations but we don’t currently have a tree. […]

Title? Think I forgot it too…

Through my years I have gone through things, done things, put myself in situations I shouldn’t have, gone places I shouldn’t have, yet some things I wish I could speak on. There are some things I honestly want to talk about but I can’t. I am pretty sure there are some of you reading […]

By |September 15th, 2019|Family|0 Comments

You’ve probably heard the term “weighted blanket” many times and might have thought, “it’s just a heavy blanket, right?”. Though you wouldn’t be wrong, as weighted blankets do indeed have a weight to them,  they are far more than simply a heavier option to cover up with. Studies show that weighted blankets can be beneficial for […]

Ever been so tired you just can’t sleep?

I don’t give up easily but here lately I’m testing those waters. I’m not really a drinker per say, even though I am of Irish descent. I wonder what happened to that part of me, who fights a good fight til the end like an Irishman, so stubborn. But between having to keep one […]

New Toys

By |August 23rd, 2019|Dogs, Family|1 Comment

I purchased a new toy for the house. The main reason was to have something to play calming music at night for Saoirse. She has so much energy that sometimes nighttime isn’t as calm as it should be.

We have been leaving […]

Painful progress

Oh how so easily I bruise nowadays.

🤦🏼‍♀️ 🤦🏼‍♀️ 🤦🏼‍♀️

This is from my deep tissue massage on Saturday. #nopainnogain that’s for sure.

This is two of them, which there are a few more.

My muscles in these areas are locked and don’t want to let go so it’s been a process trying to ease them – after […]
