Happy Birthday Mikayla

Happy Birthday Mikayla

Another year has gone by and my daughter is a year older. 22 years old, do you remember being 22? Part of me feels like it was yesterday and the other part feels that it was so long ago. It was 27 years ago to be exact. She is 22 which is the age I met my husband. Five years from now I’d be giving birth to her. It’s crazy to think that she is starting her life. She graduated…

My daughter graduating college

My daughter graduating college

My daughter is graduating from college on Tuesday. I am so proud of her. She has not had an easy road especially when it came to school. She was born with a progressive hearing loss called EVAS, enlarged vestibular aqueduct syndrome. In basic terms, her ear was formed with deformities. This enlarged tube allowed fluid to leak, eventually destroying the hairs on the ears nerve where sound travels. I’ve written a few blogs about her but the following is the…

Reason to love the cold rainy day

Reason to love the cold rainy day

It is a rainy, cold and miserable day here in New York. The kind of day you want to sit on the couch wrapped up in a blanket and watch Netflix from morning to night.  The kind of day you pray you have nothing to do, nowhere to be, and no other obligations. The kind of day I am remotely grateful that I have multiple sclerosis and have nothing to do, nowhere to be and no other obligations. I…

Time goes by quickly and slowly

Time goes by quickly and slowly

Another Friday is here. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or because I don’t do much but these weeks go so fast. I’m not bored Most days I’m amazed at how fast the day went. I use to say the days go slow but the years go fast. Now it seems everything is speeding on by. My daughter is 21. She’s a senior in college. That alone is enough to shock me. However in an old draw…

Just a Friday morning blog post

Just a Friday morning blog post

Do puppies have a terrible two? If they’re seven years to our one year, does that mean around three months that’s where these terrible two’s would start? Minxs was a pain in the ass yesterday. My daughter had a friend over, the dogs were super excited. As we were making our way to bedtime, they both got all riled up. Eventually Zoey settle down, Minx did not. I tried everything to calm him down, it wasn’t happening. I finally had…

And the daughter reluctantly returns

And the daughter reluctantly returns

My daughter is home. She came home yesterday evening. The puppies were so excited to see her. She hasn’t been been home in a few months. This was the longest stretch of time she hasn’t come home. This is what happens when there is no longer a boyfriend at home she is with. For all the times she told me she was coming home because she missed me, this proves it was always him. Lol, I actually never cared. I…

Marriage & Divorce

Marriage & Divorce

It is a pretty looking day here but I always think that when the sun shines on the water. It isn’t even shining but the sky is adding this pretty yellow hue to the still water. Hard to do it justice from my chair. I’m excited to share happy news that my beautiful cousin got engaged. This was such exciting news. I honestly have been waiting for this news from her and her fiancé for a little bit knowing he…

A selfless act

A selfless act

My daughter went back to school yesterday. She took the train back. A normally uneventful trip that became an extremely horrendous night because she was traveling back into a snowstorm. Her school is only about 3-3 1/2 hours away from where we live yet the weather can be drastically different. She doesn’t go to school up a mountain but it is further into New York State than Long Island where I am. The snowstorm, which we were following, was starting…

The day of the stuffing

The day of the stuffing

I hope everyone had a yummy feast yesterday. I had a very nice dinner with my mom, stepdad, sister, brother in law and my daughter. We were a small group but still shared many laughs and lots of love. There were a few things I found humerus because you have to laugh when you have MS: It was the first time I was using the ramp at my mom and stepdads home. There are three ramps in all and the…
