I Am Only Human


July 27, 2012 It has been roughly 6 months since the beginning of my undertaking.  My health is slowly but surely improving with what I hope is a correct diagnosis (finally!  After almost 2 years!)  The last appointment to my rheumatologist revealed low levels of vitamin D.  We are hoping with treatment this will explain … Continue reading

We’ve Got Trouble with a Capital “D”


June 11, 2012 Oh the joys of unprocessed eating.  I have heard it called ‘clean eating’ a lot lately also.  Call it whatever you want my daughters are NOT buying into it.  I had some dreams that once I was home with them full time in the summer that I could magically transform their tastebuds.  … Continue reading
