Busy Spokane Summer


Sorry I haven't blogged FOREVER but I have been soooo busy. As most of us working mothers are. Where to begin.....Well most recently we got back from Cabo San Lucas and we stayed at the Villa Del Palmar Cabo. It was so much fun, safe and kid friendly. I would highly recommend this place for any age to come. They have several different pools. The upper pool is more calm where a lot of older folks and people without kids hang out, there's the lower pool with the whale slide and hourly activities provided the hotel where we hung out. There's a pool next to the bar, one on another side of a restaurant, and a toddler pool. SOOOOO MUCH FUN!!!!

Before we left and before we got back its been work, work, work and BASEBALL for the boys. 5+ days a week baseball between the 2 boys is crazy. Can you say "fast food" for dinner? Anyway, I have other blogs that I do more regularly because they are work related, but they have tons of information on Home Projects like adding new flooring, countertops or blinds to your home.

On another note, I have a friend (baseball mom) who told me about the Red Carpet Manicure Pro 45 set for gel nails. I showed her my gel nails before I went on vacation and she told me this product works very well. She said I should get mine at Ulta because they have a 20% off coupon and a great exchange policy. I cant wait to buy it, 2 nail sessions and it pays for itself.

Last but not least I've signed up for the Spokane Physique Challenge. Its time to get by butt back into shape. No excuses unfortunately they are open with trainers from 5am-11pm. Looks like I'll be attending the 9 or 10pm classes. Summer is around the corner and I want to look good. Anyway I will try and keep posting more often. If there is something you want to hear about, an opinion or have questions please feel free to contact me. I will put a link on the blog.

How did you know your child had diabetes? Know The Symptoms (It Could Save a Life)

How did you know your child had Type 1 diabetes? Parents of children with diabetes will hear this question asked a million times. And each time you tell your story the story gets shorter and shorter. You begin to leave out details. Details that may one day save another child's life. I wrote this for a couple of reasons. The first reason was to document the details and help other families who are searching for answers to unexplained symptoms. The second reason was to really get my emotions off my chest, and reflect.

December 30, 2016 is a day I will never forget.  This date will now be forever know to us as Carter's "dia-versary."This was the day my seven year old son Carter was diagnosed with Type one Diabetes. I still tear up when I say or even write those words... my son was diagnosed with T1D. It all kind of happened so fast really. It was Christmas break 2016 and the kids were home for a couple of weeks. Things were normal as usual, stress right before a holiday,…

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Have you ever just had one of those days or even weeks where everything that could go wrong does go wrong? I'm having one of those weeks where it just feels like money is being sucked from every which direction no matter what I do. An unexpected trip to the doctor, furnace/AC goes out, you need car repairs, your in the middle of a home project that requires time and money, you get a red light ticket in the mail from a camera, your child needs braces, your spouse is going on a business trip to Europe and needs extra cash for the extra week the work isn't paying for, and the list goes on.....

Sometimes it just feels like everything hits you at once and everyone needs your full attention....I think I read if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger. Well I feel like I am strong enough! What do you do to cope with all the unexpected stress in your life? Let me know by posting some of your Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day stories.

I'm sure it will get better....Ri…
