Going Home…

The last time I stepped foot in the state of Michigan was 2012, it was summer time and I was here with my husband and kids.  This visit has been far different I flew to Escanaba by myself, in the middle of winter for my grandmother’s birthday.  I am older and one may even argue … Continue reading

The Holiday Bustle

I wanted to let everyone know I am alive and kicking.  I survived Gingerbread Village 2015 and Boat Parade.  It was a long November with school, Gingerbread, Boat Parade, somehow I survived and got some much needed time off.  I started creating again it was definitely put on the back burner with school and work. … Continue reading

10 Long Weeks…

This quarter made me question my sanity on more than one occasion.  I thought Business Law, Accounting and Finance were difficult nothing prepared me for Fundamentals of Communication and Consumer Behavior.  These two classes by far were the hardest for me not because of what I was learning but because I didn’t get a break.  … Continue reading

Day 18… She made me cry

Day 17

Day 16

So today I really thought tears were going to happen, my arms feel like they weighed 1,000 pounds each.  You wouldn’t think 3 pound weights would make a grown woman cry, but 16 days worth of 3 pound weights almost did.  I will say I am far less sore after a ten and a half … Continue reading

Day 15

I have made it 15 days and today I finally did this thing called a walking push up.  It was hell, I can’t even describe how awful they are but I managed to do a full push up from the toes not the knees.  I have always had problems with push ups because my shoulder … Continue reading
