Full Circle 

Currently, I am listening to my daughter talk to her Boppa (my dad) in the guest room. He flew in this evening. She weaseled her way out of her own room to go sleep in the guest room with him so he “won’t be lonely”. HA! She’s asking him how he met Emmy (my momma). […]

Vroom Vroom Beep Beep

Being disabled is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to accept. Some days, I often wonder if I’ve fully accepted it yet. Obviously, logically I know that I am disabled because a. The VA says I am. b. Countless doctors have told me I am, c. I have the scars to remind me and […]

Justin Wells: Guitar-Wielding Superhero

Ouch. There’s a fancy acronym for them but I don’t really care to look it […]

There is No I in “Team”

This is called “Battlestations” in the Navy and while it seems really rigorous and exhausting […]

Musings of A Woman With A Bad Back

Yesterday, I spent much of the day laid up in bed because I had thrown my back out doing gardening. Yes, gardening. I love it and it’s fun. I was feeling kind of crummy and I had read an article about someone who had gone through the same fallout with friends as I had gone […]
