My Mammogram Experience

I have been meaning to write about this for a while, but it was difficult when I was in the moment and once it was over, I moved on. However, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, I thought I’d discuss my most recent–as well as past–trials and tribulations with the ta ta’s. For those that don’t know, I’m over 40. 42 to be exact. So, at the behest of my gyn, every year...

It’s All About the Family Reunion

So, my mother–who I miss every day of my life–was born and raised in Ansted, West Virginia. (We call it ‘Dead-sted’ because there is literally nothing to do there. I’ve seen chickens wander in the middle of the street looking for entertainment–I kid you not.) My mother, however, was proud to call herself a hillbilly, loved the Grand Ol Opry and Willie Nelson, and told me she had spent her entire life camping–which is why when I was...

The Sarge Chronicles: Pet Safety

I’ve been meaning to post something about this topic for a while now. As you know, Sarge is my love.

Here’s the thing about Sarge, he’s part German Shepherd–which you can see from him markings. Shepherds are known for being loyal, among other things. Case in point, one...

So, while I have been diligently focusing my time elsewhere, my mind hasn’t been idle–just my blog. But there has been something weighing on my mind for a while and I just think it...

My Hypnotherapist Visit

Several people have asked how my visit to the hypnotherapist went. So I figured, why not tell the masses. I have to say, I didn’t know what to expect. The only thing I knew about being hypnotized was from cartoon lore. You know, someone swinging a pocket watch in front of a person’s face and that person becomes so mesmerized that every time someone says, ‘red,’ the individual starts barking like a dog. In...

The Sarge Chronicles: My Protector

Since I often share the frustrating–yet amusing–stories about Sarge, I thought it only fair to share some of the good as well. A few weeks ago I was having a panic attack. It’s not a regular occurrence for me–thankfully–but none-the-less, it happened. While I was trying to calm myself down, Sarge came over and jumped up at me as if to say, “It’s ok.” Eventually, it was–sort of. Since the panic attack happened in...
