Medical, Medical Everywhere!

I’ve had a lot of fun with medical stuff the last few years. It just keeps going too. Doesn’t help either that I have some legit anxiety that leads to a bit of hypochondria, so there is definitely a mix of physical symptoms mixed with psychosomatic symptom…it’s a fun combination 😂 I’m writing this forContinue reading “Medical, Medical Everywhere!”

Travel Log: Iejima, Okinawa, Japan

One thing I didn’t do as much of as I would have liked while living in Okinawa was visit the smaller Okinawa Prefecture islands. 2020 was the year!! But then…COVID restricted us to big Oki until our move back to the USA and we missed our chance. For Chris’ 40th birthday in May 2019 weContinue reading “Travel Log: Iejima, Okinawa, Japan”

Happy Hump Day #1

I’ve mentioned Tettohs Coffee a few times in my blog already. If you ever get a chance to visit Okinawa, Japan, make your way to Tettohs Coffee in Uruma. My favorite place on island—relaxing, friendly, delicious! In fact, I’m sure I’ll do a full post on Tettohs at one point. For now, enjoy one ofContinue reading “Happy Hump Day #1”

The Traveling Boobs #3: Flying

Graycie will be four in just a few days! She has quite the travel experience so far…and since we haven’t flown since she stopped nursing a few weeks ago, all of her flying was as a nursing child. Nursing made life MUCH easier for me while traveling because if she’s was going nuts I couldContinue reading “The Traveling Boobs #3: Flying”

The Traveling Boobs #2: Beaches

I wasn’t a huge fan of the beach until living in Okinawa for a few years. I spent more time on the beach my last year in Okinawa than I had my entire lifetime prior. With kids there are new challenges to going to the beach. Mainly sand…in cracks…butt cracks, front cracks, shoe cracks, carContinue reading “The Traveling Boobs #2: Beaches”

The Pimples of my Eyes

Emma asked about the “pimples of my eyes” today 😂 Took me a minute to realize she meant “pupils.” She may not know what to call them, but she was able to tell me some pretty neat facts about eyes and pupils…she’s so smart! I had a medical appointment today that included somewhere around 22Continue reading “The Pimples of my Eyes”

Home is where the heart is…

Never been a fan of that saying, but as a Marine and military brat, I get it. If I am counting correctly, I’ve lived in 21 houses in my 32 years—and that doesn’t include extended stays in hotels, or deployment, or training. I’ve logged about a year on a ship and another year in hotelsContinue reading “Home is where the heart is…”
