What Sinus Surgery is REALLY Like!
Published on Sunday, August 13, 2017 by This is me a day or two before sinus surgery. Look how calm I appear. Little did I know. As I mentioned in my previous post, I have suffered from sinus infections for my entire adult life. Antibiotics stopped working to clear them up, sending me down the sinus surgery road. Day surgery pre-op was as expected. IV, two tylenol, talks with the anesthesiologist. You k...
Surgery Isn’t The Only Thing
Published on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 by Tuesday I go under the knife. After a lifetime of sinus infections, antibiotics have finally stopped working.  And that is scary.  So Tuesday I go in for three types of sinus surgery, none of which I can spell or pronounce.  Bottom line, all of my sinuses will be opened up and bone will be repaired that is in the way. In the last few months I have heard nothing b...
Look Up!
Published on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 by This month's photo challenge theme is, "Look Up."  This is my favorite theme so far - it helped  me to remember to always look up!  That is the downside to being addicted to finding seaglass.  Your eyes are always gazing towards the ground!  From a hospital bed to looking up at a Frisbee on the beach! 2.  Daughter and cattle dog... UP! 3.  So...
Wildlife of Corolla… Getting Wild!
Published on Sunday, May 21, 2017 by This weekend brought hot weather, sun and Outer Banks wildlife for about four hours.  Then the weather turned cold and windy.  But no matter.  Corolla is beautiful in all types of weather. The rabbit population in Corolla, NC is certainly healthy this year.  This little one hops around the back of our house and eats grass and red berries. I love this pictur...
Surf’s Up!
Published on Monday, May 15, 2017 by My how busy it has been.  I am looking for a second job, trying to find scholarships and funding to enable my oldest son's college dream to come true and everything in between. But in the middle of all the chaos came a beautiful mother's day weekend in Corolla.  The Corolla that doesn't often have waves that bring out 13 surfers in our one little section. ...
Color
Published on Sunday, April 30, 2017 by This month's photo challenge subject was Color.  I had a wonderful time choosing my favorites and can't wait to see the photos others took!  We have had this dragon kite since the children were small.  It was worth every penny. 2.  A family member sent me these whimsical Hayao Miyazaki figures.  I love them as much as I love the movies. 3.  This y...
The  Heart Tattoo that was Planned for a Year
Published on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 by I'm not a tattoo girl.  I have a few fun small ones, but nothing anyone would notice.  I waited until I was 50 to get them because hey.... if you wait until you are older you don't have to live with them for very long, right?  But as far as big tattoos, good Catholic girls raised in conservative Navy homes don't get them.   Especially on the arm. On that note, l...
FOUR
Published on Friday, March 31, 2017 by This month's photo challenge subject is four because the A 'lil HooHaa Photo Blogging Challenge has turned four!  I can't wait to see everyone's pictures.  I'll look forward to visiting everyone's sites on Saturday as I will be traveling Friday night.   A horseshoe crab and four mermaid's purses.  Yes, I soooo staged this.  But it was fun! These four c...
Big Stick
Published on Monday, March 20, 2017 by Where have I been during the last month? Let's see. The doctor's office, the pharmacy, the doctor's office, the pharmacy, the ENT, the doctor's office, the emergency room, the advanced imaging center and tomorrow, the ENT. I believe all of this could have been avoided had I just called Roto-Rooter. For most of my adult life I have suffered from sinus infections. T...
LOVE
Published on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 by This month's photo challenge topic was "love."  Other than my children and family, there  is nothing I love more than my pets! 1. This is Dusty.  She was a feral cat in Corolla that we took in.  She is now the laziest, happiest house cat there ever was.  But she is also the sheddiest. In this photo I caught her in mid-shake, tongue out, fur flying. 2.  This ...
Making a Difference
Published on Monday, February 13, 2017 by I have fostered two dogs over the last few years for an amazing local rescue.  The first one was extremely difficult.  She bonded with me as I did with her, so when it was time to say goodbye I cried like a little baby.  She found an amazing forever home with a couple that fell in love with her.  It is more than bittersweet to see your foster find a home, even whe...
Express Yourself
Published on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 by After a month of writing, we finally get a bit of a break with this month's photo challenge, "Express Yourself!" 1. This is River, our "foster fail."  We were fostering her, fell in love with her and adopted her ourselves.  The decision was made the moment we realized she expresses herself by howling.  Every time one of us walks in she shows her joy with a wolfpa...
