Out and about

The last few days have been busy in the best kind of way. On Sunday, we took the Little Guy to see a soccer game. We saw the KU women’s soccer team host the University of Nebraska-Omaha. My husband went to school at UNO and worked as both a student worker and professional sports information … Continue reading

Playtime

Playtime

This is my favorite time of year. The marching band is practicing all over campus, everything looks gorgeous, it even feels like fall here this week. AWESOME! I’m peppy — really peppy, like I used to be. During work today I got to take time to take all of that in. Last year I didn’t … Continue reading

From walker user to move-in pro in one year

From walker user to move-in pro in one year

Until about 10 p.m. today I felt like She-Ra (Thanks to Internationalhero.co.uk for the image). Do you remember her? The Princess of Power who was He-Man’s female counterpart? Anyway, when I was a kid, she was a badass who could do anything with a terrifically catchy theme song. And today, for 13 hours, I felt … Continue reading

No more wisdom teeth

No more wisdom teeth

My wisdom teeth were removed without incident last Friday. Turns out I had nothing to worry about. On the advice of my best friend, I took one of the prescribed Hydrocodone twice each of the first two days, and I took only one the next two days. It wasn’t constantly painful and didn’t swell too … Continue reading

Wisdom (teeth)

Wisdom (teeth)

My wisdom teeth are coming out on Friday. Yes, I am a medical freak of nature. I am 32 years old and my wisdom teeth are still impacted. The three of them that exist are anyway. So, at 8 a.m. Friday I will have them surgically extracted. I met with the oral surgeon recently about … Continue reading

Letter to Michelle Knight

Letter to Michelle Knight

Since news broke in May that three women were found inside a Cleveland home, my heart has ached for them. The young women — Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus — were held as captives for more than a decade by a man who hid them from the world, tortured, raped and chained them. … Continue reading

What’s next?

A few random thoughts to share today: — My guys were home sick today. They both have bad coughs and didn’t sleep well so they hung out at home in their pjs today and rested. I’m not coughing and my throat doesn’t hurt so I’ll just hope it stays that way. Hopefully they will both … Continue reading

A good day with the stroller

A good day with the stroller

The three of us are pretty lucky. Even though it rained some and my husband had to work on Saturday night, we had a darn good weekend. Hopefully, some of it will stick with me for awhile. On Saturday, when the Little Guy and I were home on our own. We read a ton of … Continue reading

Centered

Centered

A very cool thing happened in yoga practice today. A student who is studying physical therapy and has worked with our teacher often was able to attend. The summer group has been very small and today’s class was chattier than usual. The teacher, Mimi, asked the physical therapist, Caroline, to name the major muscles we … Continue reading

Happy half-birthday, Son

Happy half-birthday, Son

My son is 18 months old! I will forever know the birthday of the Prince of Cambridge because my little guy celebrated his half-birthday at the same time. We got to the birth center before the sun came up that morning, just like Kate and Will. Our little guy took his first breath at 4:58 … Continue reading
