The squeakiest of the wheels gets the grease (I hope)

July 23, 2016

This summer has been quite busy for us. Our first speech therapy semester ended in early June and we have still been having evals to try to qualify for different types of therapies for Avery. It seems like ever since this journey started we keep hearing the same things; your family is over the income limit, your daughter is too young for this program, we will put you on the waiting list and my personal favorite it could take up…

Robins, a wife, her husband and a diabetic cat

July 13, 2016

If you are a bird lover you may want to skip this post. If not feel free to read on. You may remember my robin problems I had earlier this spring/summer. If not or you need a refresh you can read about them here. The robins have not forgotten our tumultuous relationship and they have been leaving us little reminders all summer. When I say little reminders I mean they have been pooping everywhere. In our vehicles, on our outdoor…

Swimsuits, A migraine and my diabetic cat

June 30, 2016

These past couple of weeks have just flown by! We have been so busy spending time outside and at the beach. With all of the commotion around here there hasn’t been much time for blogging. I finally found a little time tonight and I promised myself that I was actually going to hit publish instead of save draft this time 😉 Here’s a little update on our summer so far. Since it is summer I decided to find a new…

Thank you for judging us

June 10, 2016

I do not want to write about this. I so do not want to write about this but I can’t stop thinking about it. So I will. I already have anxiety about this post. A lump in my throat, hands tingling, teeth grinding, nausea and I feel like I want to jump out of my skin. Yep, good old anxiety. I just hope I feel better after I am done with this post. They say you don’t have to hit…

Loss Love

Four years later and we still have bad days

June 7, 2016

We are coming up on five years this September since we lost our son. I so wish I could tell you all that it has gotten easier. I wish I could tell you that the hurt isn’t as bad as it once was. But that would be a lie. Yes, we have somewhat learned to live without him and go on. You kind of have to. We can’t cry every day, all day and we have a life to live.…

The fourth time was not a charm 5k

May 26, 2016

I have been meaning to work on this post all week but time has gotten away from me. We have been so busy with our yard and just getting outside and enjoying the warm weather. Now we are getting some much-needed rain so I finally have time to write this 🙂 Last Saturday was the first 5k of the year for personal trainer and I. We had a goal and unfortunately we did not reach it. Our goal was to…

The positives and negatives of life after cancer treatment

May 18, 2016

I am still on the clear scan high and I am totally lovin’ life right now. This time is great but trust me when I say it doesn’t last long. I wish it lasted forever but for some reason I can’t stretch it very long. From an outsiders point of view I should be ecstatic. I beat cancer going on three years now (besides the small scare I had six months ago.)  I definitely do not want to sound ungrateful…

And we are back

May 17, 2016

We got back from CTCA yesterday afternoon after a super long drive. I can definitely say that we don’t have summer in Wisconsin we have road construction season instead. We tried our hardest to avoid the construction but it is pretty much impossible. Anyway, we were able to come home with great news. All of my scans and labs looked great! There were no abnormalities or huge tumors growing inside of me so I am cleared for another six months.…

I want you to be your own biggest cheerleader

May 11, 2016

Dear Avery- Up until now I have been your biggest cheerleader. I have been fighting for you every step of the way and I have always encouraged you to be yourself and to live to your greatest potential. I have pushed you, encouraged you and sometimes made you do things. Now, I am going to take a step back. Not because I don’t love you or want to see you do your best. Actually, quite opposite. I want you to…

Scans drive me crazy!

May 10, 2016

Scan time is fast approaching and I am freaking out! I just want to hide under my blankets so no one can find me. Instead I am busy getting ready to travel back down to CTCA. I used to think that the scans would get easier as time goes on but that is definitely not the case for me. It’s not the scans themselves that bother me. It’s the fact that they are looking inside of my body and I…
