Parking with Disabilites

 I have written about this before but I think it’s a good time for a refresher. All too often I see things from the disabled community about how a local “hero” has left a note shunning them for not being disabled and parking in a disabled spot; or, they even go a step further and resortContinue reading “Parking with Disabilites”

Adventure: Orcas Isalnd

Meg was lucky enough to score another assisting gig up in the San Juan Islands, and this time there was enough time and space for me and Tuck to tag along (thanks to Catherine and Michael Abegg for giving us the room to stay in!). The weekend was absolutely amazing, even though I managed toContinue reading “Adventure: Orcas Isalnd”

The Mike Herrera Hour

I have been a huge fan of Mike Herrera since way back…1996 way back. Mike is the lead singer of MXPX and Tumbledown. He is a talented musician and producer that also runs Monkey Trench Studios. For MS Awareness month I was lucky enough to sit down and talk with Mike on his podcast, The MikeContinue reading “The Mike Herrera Hour”

When you gotta go

Where’s the restroom? There are so many symptoms with MS, that a bunch of them often get glanced over. The one that has been the most active for me lately is incontinence. The opposite of constipation, incontinence is where your bladder is going to empty NOW; with as little notice as possible. I never thoughtContinue reading “When you gotta go”

The Ink Master

October 23, 2013 I was scrolling through my twitter feed when I saw that Oliver Peck was in town hangin’ with his buddy Mike Herrera. I totally sent him a fan girl tweet about being in my hometown. I was stoked when he invited me to join them at one of the rad local bars. My awesomeContinue reading “The Ink Master”

Beach with the pups

The pups and I headed down to our neighborhood beach front the other day and had some fun playing fetch. Mollie is all about that water…as long as it ain’t in a bathtub. When i’m at the beach I can’t help but look around for some treasure. All I found was a blue hardhat andContinue reading “Beach with the pups”

Learning to fly

I’m fighting a wicked battle of blogger’s block, so forgive me for slacking off recently. Can I claim procrastination as an MS symptom?! Life has been full to the brim; full of awesome things…and a few not so awesome things. The awesomest of all, Meg left her job at mywedding.com! It’s been a long timeContinue reading “Learning to fly”

County Fair 

With summer coming to an end what better way to celebrate than with the county fair. As of late my hands are not cooperating so we are going to have a photo adventure today.  Check out our day at the Kitsap County Fair.             I am working on a new way toContinue reading “County Fair “

GENETIC PREDISPOSITION

“Some researchers theorize that MS develops because a person is born with a genetic predisposition to react to some environmental agent that, upon exposure, triggers an immune-mediated response.” – National MS Society William (Bill) Kalbach Jones was my great grandfather and he had Multiple Sclerosis. He was a civilian working in the Puget Sound Navel ShipyardContinue reading “GENETIC PREDISPOSITION”
