Happy New Year!

2021 was definitely not what anyone expected, nor was 2020. 2022 here we are! The last 2 years have taught me SO much. The last three and a half years taught me so much more. What’s important. What’s not important. What deserves my energy and time, what does not. So many losses, so many gains. […]

Congratulations Chris 🎉

5 years alcohol free today. I am SO proud of my husband and all he did to remove alcohol and better his life and our life. I could not be more proud of him. Alcohol is such the norm but that does not mean it’s healthy or good for you as we both know it […]

R&R Much Needed

Rest & relaxation and being alone is often needed for me throughout this TBI journey. This is so not like me pre TBI. But it’s an absolute must for me now. So I had a week. I was losing my mind. Living in a camper plus 2 dogs and my husband, not being in the […]

Feelings 💰🌲🏡🚽✈️💬

I don’t know why, but I am having such a wanderlust to go somewhere new and experience something new and to honestly take time for myself and to learn more about myself. Or is it just that I am anxious and so ready to be done living in our camper? It’s been since July 1st […]

7/25/2003 18 years!

July 25th, 2003 I was married in Negril Jamaica. It would have been my 18th wedding anniversary. That’s so insane to me. I was married a month before I turned 23. My husband was great, it was everything I ever wanted. But I was so young and life changed so much over the years that […]

Loving Our New Living Situation

We have been living in our camper at our new home for a few weeks. Surprisingly it’s ok. We thankfully had upgraded our camper and living in it is totally doable. Jax has a room in the house with my parents. I am able to walk up to his room and screen window and chat. […]

Moving Again… But For A Good Reason

Moving with TBI sucks. It’s hard. I think it is for anyone, adding a brain injury with huge energy issues makes it so much harder. We sold our house and moved again just after 2 years. But this time we are financially ok. We are buying my parents home so they can retire and be […]

Happy 99th birthday to her today. She would have been 99 today, but left this world on Monday to go be with her late husband Ralph that she has wished to be with for SO many years. We just saw her last weekend and had a great visit with her. I learned so much about […]
