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”

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”

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!”
