Playing Adult

I mentioned in Finally a Trip to Ithaca, NY that I couldn’t wait to get back to Ithaca. That happened much quicker than I expected…my MIL came into town last week so Chris and I decided to capitalize on her being here and make a weekend trip up north. There was a house we wereContinue reading “Playing Adult”

Finally a Trip to Ithaca, NY

Took G to Ithaca for a quick trip last week. It’s even more beautiful than I imagined! I still can’t believe I’m going to Cornell! Buying a house is stressful and scary. G and I really like ice cream. I’m totally all-in on this farming thing and I think Ithaca is the perfect place toContinue reading “Finally a Trip to Ithaca, NY”

From Hero to Zero

I’m a Marine. I decided I wanted to be a Marine when I was 12 years old, and I worked unbelievably hard to make it to where I am (more on that in a later post). I put the Marine Corps ahead of pretty much everything else in my life for well over a decade.Continue reading “From Hero to Zero”

My Girl is in Boy Scouts…

Today I took Emma to her first Cub Scout meeting. Not something I ever thought I’d say. I remember being a little older than her and in Girl Scouts and wanting to be a Boy Scout. I loved my troop, but the boys camped more, and hiked, and it seemed like they did cooler stuff,Continue reading “My Girl is in Boy Scouts…”

No Really…I’m Speaking

My girls and I stumbled on this awesome crocheted (yes, you read that correctly) banner of the VP with her popular “I’m speaking” quote from the VP debate. Simple but profound. I work in a very male dominated environment. I consider myself very fortunate to have been treated well and respected by (most) of myContinue reading “No Really…I’m Speaking”

My First Boob Squish

I had my first boob squish today…you might know that as a mammogram. I recently stopped nursing Graycie and noticed some lumps shortly after. They didn’t change for a bit, so figured I should get checked out. Everything is good—no abnormalities on the boob squish or the follow-up ultrasound. It was an interesting experience though.Continue reading “My First Boob Squish”

I Pay for Chicken Practice?

Today was a monumental day in the Falcon household…the girls started soccer!! Now I should have read the fine print, because I thought my kids started playing soccer on a team today, but it turns out it’s just skills. So no teamwork. And the parents are supposed to be involved—even with the older kids. SoContinue reading “I Pay for Chicken Practice?”

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!”
