March 2019 Update – House Fire

For anyone who never got to see the inside of the Off Grid home we lived in for years BEFORE it burned down in the fire, this is what it looked like. It was beautiful. We felt blessed, and so thankful to be able to live in such a special place. It was expensive, and […]

Trump Supporters Solemnly Swear They Are Up To No Good…

“How do we have a normal discussion with a group who is willing to believe nonsense & lies, while ignoring the horrors of the Trump administration by claiming it’s all FAKE?

How do we, as citizens, work together to protect & defend those who are or will be targeted, instead of wearing blinders to block out the pain of others?

The very first step is all of us learning to accurately tell the difference between white supremacist created propaganda meant to divide & create chaos, and real shared online news & facts.

If we see a “meme”, fake news, propaganda, etc pass through one’s social media feed, it is now our responsibility as human beings to report it, spread the real info, & call out every single divide & conquer technique.

Why is this important?

To protect the vulnerable. “

White Privilege

“What you described is exactly what you are doing.

A person is kneeling peacefully.
You are screaming that his sitting down quietly before outdoor time is making you very angry, & therefore HE needs a time out & no dessert!!!

Buck up, wipe away the tears, & go play somewhere else, FAR away from Colin Kaepernick…”

Rent was too high, wood for heat was expensive, propane tank was expensive and things in the apartment kept breaking but weren’t getting repaired. I started […]

Fire Recovery Update

Hey Everyone! Quick update: Thank you all for the help recovering from this terrible tragedy. As you can see from this pictures, we have been able to replace a lot but still have more to go. The damage from this has lingered. Yesterday, I went for a scheduled x-ray & had a panic attack after […]

Waiting….

Hospital waiting rooms always have a shade of light green color. This is because light pale green can be calming. Problem is, every hospital goes with this color unless it is a children’s unit/hospital. People who are in hospitals often no longer find light green calming. Their brains associate the color with waiting, terror, feeling […]

Cleft Palate Surgery

For those who have never seen this picture before, this is G at just a few weeks old. We were in the hospital for 3 months before we got to come home the 1st time. Then, we were back in our hospital’s PICU, over to Boston Children’s for a month for open heart surgery and […]
