CT3M-Have You Tried It?

Is it possible that the weather could get any worse? Or another question you might ask is could I possibly talk about anything but weather? I am sure I could but we are drowning in rain right now in Minnesota and many are without power and the waves of storms just keep coming our way. Meanwhile, […]

Blood Testing and the Results

As I stand at my computer the sun is shining on my back. I cannot tell you how good it feels to just see the sunshine after three days of low hanging clouds and on and off rain. I guess you could say I am solar-powered because I know my SU loves those low hanging […]

How Time Flies

I don’t know about my readers but I can hardly believe an entire month has passed since I last shared some of my hard-earned insight. Summer has been hot and humid but fun and filled with laughter.

How Do You Know When to Increase?

I am writing this post on the day before Mother’s Day because I get the honor of having my daughter, her husband and my grandson with me tomorrow, Mother’s Day. What a great gift she is giving me as I know my daughter hates getting in the car and traveling across town but she is […]

Almost Nirvana and Other Madness

This week’s blog is for my fellow thyroid sufferers and other “spoonies”. A thyroid friend contacted me the other day and asked how I was doing (Hi Olivia) that got me to thinking that I hadn’t reported recently on the status of my health. There isn’t really anything earth shattering to report, nothing fabulous or […]

Heading Up the Thyroid Highway

Over the last two weeks I have learned things are never as they seem. There is no mold we all fit in, no normal, no one size fits all. I will be the first to admit my journey along Thyroid Highway has been bumpy this last 9 months. I have tried to fit in to […]

Writing from the North Pole?

Ho! Ho! Ho! I am pretty sure I now live in the frozen tundra known as the North Pole. I thought it was Minnesota but after this weekend’s weather event we are a winter wonderland and the only things missing are the elves and all the toys they make.  The good news is for the […]
