Struggling with confessions

Originally posted 2018-09-25 08:36:21. Since my momma’s passing some things have come to my eyes that I may have not seen before. I am truly struggling with these and have honestly only told my husband and my daughter.  I know people deserve their lives the way they choose to live, happy, healthy or destructive. No matter what that is someone’s personal choice.  But I am having a hard time understanding one’s intentions after losing someone…

Happy Heavenly Birthday Momma and CJ

Originally posted 2020-10-20 08:00:00. My nephew CJ’s birthday was October 17th and my momma’s is October 20th. They may be gone in the physical sense but never forgotten. It’s barely been 10 months since CJ’s passing and almost 2 and a half years for since my momma passed away. It is hard “celebrating” their birthday when they aren’t here. I know my momma would want us to celebrate and have fun, drink a beer and…

Week one

Originally posted 2022-05-29 16:55:02. Baby steps. I’m home from the hospital and making progress. When I was first rolled out of the OR I remember them covering my shoulders with lots of ice packs. It was to ease the swelling in my shoulders. They had to pull my arms and shoulders down and back so they could get to my neck the way they needed. My shoulders hurt like a mf’r when I started waking…

Secrets and my fear

Originally posted 2015-01-20 13:16:42. https://linktr.ee/AmyMCarter That word can be both negative and positive when it is in our lives. For me it means the struggle of the things I have seen and can’t speak on out of the fear of the parties involved coming after me and my kids. I struggle with it daily. I have this part of me that says I if I say something about the secret I am referring to I…

Children…and all that comes with it.

Originally posted 2015-01-12 21:38:53. Raising children can be one of the harder things parents have to do in their lives. As we all know there isn’t that perfect manual for us to guide us through the challenges that parenting presents. For me, since I have a “normal” one and a special needs one I had to throw out any previous ideas I had on how to do things. Not dramatically different but in a lot…

Canned?

Chewy still having issues. He is being extremely picky where his food is concerned. I cooked him some beef liver and he was eating it at first. Then yesterday I took a poop sample to the doc office for them to check out. I told them he still wasn’t eating. They gave me more nausea meds for himbas well as some food that is designed for dogs that they need to get food in them.…
