My Father’s Heart: Always Seasoning

I started a new job last week. A local snack food company was needing help and called me to come work on the production line for as long as I could. I agreed though I was not sure how my "haven't worked in a year" body would handle the 9-10 hours on my feet per… Continue reading My Father’s Heart: Always Seasoning

Enough is Enough: My Story Part 2

Enough is enough! The weeds are back and I really need to do something about them this year. Too sick to do much about them last year I should not be surprised at their rapid advance.

I find that my nose reacts especially negatively to… Continue reading A Distinct Aroma; Like It or Not

It’s Dying Off

It will get worse before it gets better. I have heard that phrase now from two of my doctors. Boy, have they been right about the "get worse" part as I find myself knee deep in the "worse" and struggling to function; I really hope they are right about the “it gets better” part too.… Continue reading It’s Dying Off
