CIDP, Encouragement, Sports, Things I Love

Welcome, August!


It’s still hot here in Las Vegas, so I’ll still be inside having a love affair with my air conditioner. A big shout out to the hubby who fixed our a/c and saved us lots of money.


Looking forward to many things in August:


School Supplies

School starts back this month, so there are sales on school supplies. Even though I don’t have children whenever I walk into the store and see school supplies I go nuts…


I want more pens, markers, folders, and oh my god…journals! I need it all even though the hubby reminds me we have plenty at home. Never can have enough…Need more.




Preseason Football starts – Yes! Love watching pro and college football. The hubby who is from Nebraska is a big Nebraska Cornhuskers fan and by marriage so am I.

It’s just fun to sit down with family and friends and watch a good game with good food and drinks.


Anti-Inflammatory Diet


People who have auto immune diseases usually have a high sedimentation rate which I do because of my CIDP. So I have decided to start incorporating more anti-inflammatory recipes into my life. I hope it helps. I’ll let y’all know how it goes.


Writing and Reading


I have two WIP I will be starting this month. Thinking positive thoughts, it goes well. I’m excited to work on these stories.

I also know that there will be many new releases from the many authors I follow. Reading soothes my soul and makes me happy.



Also, we are a step closer to Fall and cooler weather (yes), Ice hockey, new fall tv season, and the holidays.


Smiles, Happy/Positive thoughts, Laughter To All.

Be Careful What You Say and Never Say Never:

I said I would never, ever wear one of these hats and I damn sure would never marry someone who did. Little did I know that the Fates took that as a challenge.

Nebraska Cornhuser Corn Cob Hat

In the 80s I was a big fan of college football. I always saw the fans of the Nebraska Cornhuskers wearing these corn cob hats. Honestly, I thought the hats were ridiculous. I told my parents that not only would I never wear one; I would never date or marry someone who would wear one. My parents laughed at me and my dad said, “be careful what you say. You never know who you may meet and marry”. I shook my head and with an attitude said, “nope, not going to happen”.

Fast Forward To 1999:

In 1992, I fell in love with the sport ice hockey. Still watched football, but hockey was my passion. In September 1999, I met a wonderful guy online and we had many things in common. One was that he liked and played the sport ice hockey. We met, fell in love, and married.

Here is where the Fates laughingly enter…what for it…he was from Omaha, Nebraska. Dear, lovable, mom and dad just had to remember my words and tell him. They handed him ammo to use against me for the rest of our marriage and he uses it too. Lol. It’s a good thing he’s a keeper and thankfully he doesn’t own a corn cob hat. Though I would wear one for him…maybe.

So be careful what you say because the Fates may make you look foolish and trust me they are sitting back with a bucket of buttered popcorn enjoying the show.

If anyone has similar stories and wants to share them, I would love to hear them. Have a great day.
