Like Mother, Like Daughter

I know I need to update you guys about my progress and set backs, etc. I promise I will be doing that. However, in the mean time, I wrote this for my other blog, champagnecoloredglasses.com,  and it’s an update on my own little #scoligirl, Emma. Thoughts and prayers are welcome as we take on the […]

Happy 1 year Spine-iversary

It’s been a while, this I know. Juggling everything lately has been a struggle. Time passes and with each day I don’t write, I feel guilty that I have left my readers hanging. Each time I sit down to write, I am immediately side tracked by something else that needs to be taken care of […]

F@#! Scoliosis

I feel somewhat guilty that it has taken me this long to write a post. It has been emotional and sometimes difficult to navigate through this mess called scoliosis and what it’s doing to my family. I wanted to wait until I had more information and calmed down before writing an emotionally charged post while […]

A New Project

Hello All! I promise there is a reason I have been slacking in the writing department lately. I have been working on some pretty exciting things and I’ll tell you more about that farther down. Lately, I have been trying to get back to work more, work on strengthening my core in physical therapy and […]

Happy 6 month Spine-Iversary

Well, Hello again. I’m not one for celebrating half birthdays but today marks 6 months post-op. Today is a significant day for me as I look back on everything that has happened during these past months and all that I have accomplished since then. Before Christmas, I had my Nutcracker performances to deal with. It was an all day […]

Jimmy Johns All The Way

I’m taking a break from wrapping presents, and getting ready for my ballet school’s Nutcracker to write a little. It often crosses my mind as to why I chose to go ahead with a Nutcracker this year knowing I would be recovering from surgery. Pulling this off was already stressful beforehand let alone trying to […]

The Show must go on…

I swore I wouldn’t let too much time go by between posts. Yet, here I am, a month later working on a new post. I guess the good news about that is I have been so busy, I haven’t had too much time to write. I have slowly gotten back in the groove of things […]

The Three P’s

Let’s talk about the three P’s, shall we? A quote that I’ve struggled to live by;  although I’m learning I really don’t have a choice at the moment. Each day is like a horrible version of Groundhog’s Day with Bill Murray. Well…..that’s at least how it felt up until now. Be positive, patient and persistent. […]

Jurassic Park

Well hello again. I know…….It’s been 3 weeks since my last post, the longest I have gone without updating. It’s been a rough few weeks and it’s been hard to find time to write; which is odd since I basically lay around all day. The mental and physical exhaustion is taking its toll. Bear with […]

Bedazzling Gone Wrong

Remember my last post, at least I think it was my last post, where I talked about advertising my blog on my brace due to all of the staring and looks I get? I figured if I was going to get weird looks, I might as well promote my blog and get a few readers […]

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

2 1/2 weeks have passed and I am finally feeling well enough to write a little bit. It is unbelievably hard trying to use my brain, stare at my iPad and write when I feel like throwing up in my barf bag conveniently located next to me at all times. It really brings you to […]

Hanging on by a thread

To say I’ve been having a hard time would be an understatement. Don’t get me wrong, some days are better than others, however, for the most part, I feel terrible every day.  This whole situation has really worn me down not just physically but emotionally. Lately, a lot of crying has been happening. I used […]
