March 2022: monthly goal setting

It’s nearing the end of the day for March 1st as I write this, so you will read this tomorrow morning. But that’s okay. One day won’t hurt. A new month, means a new set of goals – and for this month, I’m going to make some changes. Good Reads Challenge In December, I decided…

Monday mood – there was cake, and I have regrets

It’s Monday morning (again, how does that keep happening?) and I just choked on my first sip of my coffee. I think it might be ‘one of those days’. It’s dark outside for this time of day and a little chilly. But the nice thing is that the days are getting a little longer and…

Living Well: Joint hypermobility and dislocations

I know I said I wasn’t going to post today but after a minor disagreement with a family member this morning about attending a birthday party, I thought I would share some information on joint instability and what it’s like to live with chronic joint pain and dislocations. This is one of the reasons that…

Selfcare for chronic or severe migraines

It’s been a crappy kind of week with this lingering migraine that’s been around since Sunday. I don’t know why but it could be the weather. My sister just asked the group chat how everyone was feeling and she complained of migraines this week too. I’ve not been sleeping well for a couple of weeks…

Monday moods and the heatwave continues

It’s Monday afternoon and I am posting for the first time in several days. I’ve had several posts started but just lose interest mid-way through and walk away from the computer. Part of it is due to heat – and maybe part of it is that sometimes you just need a break. That and it’s…

Rainy day moods – spring has sprung

It’s Saturday afternoon as I write this. It’s been raining non-stop since late Thursday night. I normally love the rain and storms but this kind of rain is depressing. It’s cold, dark and everything is soaking wet. But on the upside, the buds are coming in on the tree outside and it looks super pretty….

It’s been three weeks! Condo update

Good morning dear readers. It’s 8:00 am here and it’s already shaping up to be a gorgeous day. I’ve had my first cup of coffee and bagel for breakfast. As soon as this is posted, I’m hitting the showers and will be walking over to the Dollar Store to pick up some cheap decorations for…

Tuesday morning thoughts – I might be a vampire

Well the good news is I’m all caught up on sleep for now. The bad news is – I’m wide awake at 1:30 am eating chicken tender and fries from the deli. Man, these are more delicious than anything I’ve ever ordered from restaurants. And for half the cost too. I tried making it healthy…

Thursday mood: wallowing in self pity, care to join me?

It’s Thursday. The last few days have flown by. I’ve had nothing but phone calls, emails to send, letters to write – and not even for good stuff. When you have chronic medical conditions, this has a huge impact on your overall quality of life. A lot of time is spent writing medical reports, sending…
