Weight and weight of the scale

Weight and weight of the scale

I spent 6 hours at the hair salon the other day. I had my hair straightened. A long process but worth the time it takes. I will not have to worry about doing my hair all summer. Shower, let dry naturally and it comes out perfect. That takes a tremendous amount of pressure off me not having to worry about my hair. Anytime I can clear something off my plate, I take it happily. The only thing is the straightening…

Bluetooth sleep mask

Bluetooth sleep mask

I posted my first video blog yesterday. A beautiful day in the neighborhood. I think that may become my new way to blog. Hopefully I’ll become less nervous and stupid in front of the camera. I’m not one who likes photos or videos of myself so it was a little bit of an awkward position for me. But I did step out of my comfort zone and I did a blog that was much easier on my hands and a…

Too much stress, not enough sleep

Too much stress, not enough sleep

I woke up with a killer headache. I use the word woke up very loosely because I haven’t been sleeping well and last night was no different. On a good note, I should reach my 12th hour of standing goal by 2pm. I’ve been going to sleep to a meditation track every night since last Friday. I started off sleeping great but then my daughter tested positive for Covid and I’ve bees stressed. My daughter is positive for Covid. My…

Anxiety doesn’t sneak up on you, it pounces

Anxiety doesn’t sneak up on you, it pounces

Happy Wednesday. It was happy when I wrote those two words which were over an hour ago. My phone has been ringing since. Nothing bad but diverting my attention away from the blog. Then things happened at once. Minx was about to go with my aide to the vet and he got sick. He hasn’t had anything to eat since 6pm yesterday. Why would he be sick again? Zoey has been crying and howling at the door since his departure….

From the desk of Jamie Starr

From the desk of Jamie Starr

My whole life every time my dad sent me something it was enclosed with a small note on his stationary From the desk of Michael…I’m not sure when I started keeping the notes but at some point I did regardless what they said. I’d put them in a draw and leave them there. I must have close to my 100 of these little notes in my bedroom draws. I kept them because I’ve always known one day I’m going to…

MRI Today

MRI Today

Today I have a very long MRI. It is of the brain, cervical and thoracic spine with and without contrast. I would say this is probably at least my 22nd MRI since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis over 22 years ago. I am no stranger to these tests. I have actually had numerous life epiphanies during my MRIs over the years. One was when I decided I wanted to be a bookkeeper/accountant. I started to look in the papers for…

In the present moment

In the present moment

The clock is reading 6:34am. I have already cleared both puppy areas, cleaned pooper scooper, fed both dogs (twice because I knocked over Minx’s bowl to which Zoey consumed more than a fair share) and started a load of laundry. This morning it was Zoey who was awake before Minx. When she woke Minx she wanted to play. Try to stop a French bulldog and a puppy from playing. Very unlike my Zoey yet there she was sprite as a…

Learning by being the teacher

Learning by being the teacher

With so many parents being the teachers now, I think many parents are forced to learn again. Learning math, English, science and social studies but most of all learning how hard it is to be a teacher. Many parents will have a new found appreciation for the people that teach their children when schools reopen, as they should. I’ve listen to my aid spend hours helping her son with his work. A sweet kid but he’s 7 and is easily…

A peaceful weekend

A peaceful weekend

There are a few boats out on the water this morning. It is a still a little chilly but the sun is out. It looks beautiful. I opened windows to let the fresh air in. I just love this!!!! The pictures never do it justice. They never capture the sparkling effect the sun has on the water that I find just mesmerizing. This was better but still doesn’t do it justice. Saturday mornings are my favorite especially when the sun…

My daughter’s spiritual journey

My daughter’s spiritual journey

My daughter is starting on her own spiritual journey. It is amazing to watch. Months ago she started talking to my life coach and things have started to click for her recently. This last semester was a semester of growth. She had many obstacles she needed to deal with on a personal level and she came out of each incident stronger. The most amazing thing was she broke up with her high school boyfriend. A boy she was with for…
