It’s been an action packed few days getting some work done. Today, I made some home made lasagna and ramen noodles and some homemade butter tarts. It’s been a challenge but I’m determined to get my own butter tart recipe perfected. It’s the first few days of Spring everyone’s getting more antsy with the warm weather but it’s still too soon. I still have the children and myself inside our reasonably sterile air. I’ve slowly been preparing myself for the next transfusion only this time I have a couple of amazing fellow MS friends that I’m looking forward to seeing in person. I’m not sure what the protocols will be for the next infusion but we all can’t wait to get “juiced up”.
I did an impromptu radio segment with my friend and it was so much fun. I love doing live radio show with the most primal equipment. I had a lapel mic, my iPhone and my computer software. We will be doing more episodes and I will be finishing up some editing so I can upload some great stuff I’ve been doing to pass the quarantine time away. It can’t all be doom and gloom, sometimes things have to be destroyed before something better can be built. I feel that truth every time I’ve opened my eyes to a new day.
It’s the time to really invest in yourself, find what you’re good at and enjoy doing it. The world may be so uncertain right now but spending time learning and teaching my boys has been so much fun. They’ve been enjoying their online courses and we are learning how to make homemade foods. I can safely say that not only has it been fun but it has also saved us a lot in the grocery bill. I’m working on some pasta recipes, meal ideas and desserts that have been keeping my family busy.
I hope you are inspired and are creating some new activities and projects to keep you busy throughout the days.
Another year is getting ready to wrap things up and it has been a very interesting and turbulent time, however I’m pleased with my accomplishments and I’m looking forward to a fresh new start. Although it’s been an annual cliche I really do feel like I’m ready to take on more new adventures with some wonderful new people who have entered my life.
Out with the old is an understatement especially when I unknowingly walked into a situation with the wrong toxic people. It’s safe to say that they not only took themselves out of my life but things have been so much better like a breath of fresh air. I did come out better and ready for many more adventures without anyone holding me back. A stagnant life is not living it is a fast way on the road to death and I am simply not ready to leave yet.
I have met some wonderful people who are more my speed and less emotionally chaotic. The new year also brings more preparations for huge projects with my new partners via getting the word about Multiple Sclerosis. I feel that new medications and newly diagnosed patients do need a voice while the world is getting more aware of what the disease is, what it does and how big the spectrum is.
I will also have open discussions with other patients from every spectrum of the disease and how it not only effects us individually but our family and friends as well. I have met many people from all over the world and I believe it’s time to share the things that I’ve learned that can help others.

I watched the movie Us and I’m totally going to spoil it so if you haven’t seen it, my apologies and I’ll omit many of the details. It made me think about what really goes on underground. As genius human beings we’ve developed massive sewer systems, subways, trains, etc in more recent years we’ve witnessed sinkholes in the middle of our cities.. but I digress. My thoughts are what if we were forced to live underground and what if it want that bad?
I’d like to think as common sense beings we are actually closer to utopia as we are giving ourselves credit for. I’ve had some time away from the noise of television, radio and forms of social media and there’s so much more out there. I’m going to be a bit “zen” right now and tell you to choose your happiness. With all the mental noise and calamity available to us and that we carry around, what if one day it all stopped. The internet, radio, television all stopped and we were forced to live below?
We’ve been growing some herbs and vegetables with my sons and they’ve been loving it. I asked my nephews and sons of they could picture their lives without the internet and their PS4. I swear their faces looked as if they needed a few days to process it. I’ve accepted and welcome the amazing developments of technology and medicine. I disagree with our education system’s lack of focus on our children’s ability to read and write in cursive and sign names on forms and documents. Overall it’s not such a bad place to live in our most current timeline. What if we had to reset all our lives but could only live underground? No internet, no cars, no money?
I found some footage from my Canada Day (July 1, 2016) pre-show, so I wanted to share how I get ready for a live podcast and filming day.
I chose to change up my look with a custom wig from XtraWaves. It is 22 inches long and I absolutely love it. I have over processed my natural hair with bleaching and colouring so I endure a lot of frizziness and dryness, but I still want the option to change up my look without having my hair fall out lol. Wigs it is!!
I love being on podcasts and live-streaming, but a gal needs work to get camera ready. Enjoy my quick video and check in for more of my fashion fun.
