Inner reflections…

I really have a hard time with winter.I love the snow dont get me wrong,but I reach a point when I just need to feel the sun.Feel it on my face warming up my joints.I get tired of the cold,the nakedness that comes along with winter.The being confined in the same place for long periods of time literally makes me climb the walls.So today I self diagnosed myself..its called winter blahs…please let me survive it.Because change is in the air at the Ty house and I see it coming faster and faster.Making my brain spiral out of control.Its a change that takes me away from my comfort zone.Takes me away from all I have ever known.If it happens it will be a good change for many reasons,but it also leaves my lil family all alone in a life boat by ourselves.And it scares the crap out of me.But for him and a better future for our family I will take Xan*x pull on the big girl panties ,and put a smile on my face…

Welcome to our town…

Hi..and welcome to Ohio

I’m joining Shannon on her around the world in eighty blogs.So I thought what the heck challenges can be fun so here we go…

Alot can be said about our little town.We are considered a tourist town in Summer.People come from all over to see  the sternwheel boats lining up along the bank of the river.Marietta comes with alot of old buildings that have turned into cute shops that you can walk through on your way to view our river.The views from the old train bridge can be amazing,but if train bridges arent your thing you can view the river from the many parks that sit along the river.While here you should view our little museum to learn all about our history.The Campus Martius is a cute little museum that also sits along the river.Are you getting the picture yet lol..our whole town is surrounded by the rivers that border us..So now I will leave you with some of our breathtaking views that you can see if you ever want to visit us…


So my thoughts on living in this town.My likes are lower crime rates,smaller schools,we have nice parks and great views,my family all lives here and we are close so that makes it nice.Some of the dislikes include how bad the traffic can be in the summer when everyone wants to pay visit,they shut our downtown down for festivals we have during the summer and its a real mess,when I had my surgery on my brain and spine to remove a cancerous tumor we had to drive two hours away to a good hospital to have the procedure done.After several days in the hospital and coming home with nineteen staples in my head that two hours was the longest of my life.Its nice that we are a friendly community it sucks that we dont have alot of the different choices for restaurants that bigger cities have.What can I say I love food and get excited about trip away just for food choices lol.Shopping can also be a drawback we have a mall,but not as many stores as bigger cities.Being built around rivers can be bad in times of alot of rain…A few years ago it rained so bad our schools flooded,downtown flooded,you couldnt get anywhere unless you had a rowboat it was crazy people lost so much and we lost alot of our mom and pop establishments because the funds werent their to rebuild.I was happy at that time that we lived on a huge hill that just overloooked the river.Anyways thanks for visiting with us we hope to see you again soon..

btw:I cheated on photos the only one thats mine is my family photo I havent felt good the past couple days…

Sometimes its a matter of stepping back.Its taking a moment to breathe.Remembering that you are still here for a reason.Its putting one foot in front of another.Looking at your family and feeling the love.Its all these things that help me keep the panic at bay.In a couple months we will be doing another cancer scan.They will be strapping my head into the brain gear to make sure my brain is still free from cancer,scanning my spine yet again to make sure it is still all clear.I hate that word.The C word has literally almost ruined my life and ended it depending on how you look at it.Instead of springing into the thirties I shrunk into a former shell of myself.People try to figure out how I can joke about it..well sometimes its a matter of joking instead of crying.I look in the mirror and try to figure out the woman standing before me.Who is she?What in the world happened to her?And thats when I step back,I inhale and exhale.And remind myself of what I have overcome from the strength that I do have.I kiss my boys and cuddle with my husband.I grab the little mirror and hold it in front of my face in front of the big mirror and instead of gasping at that horrible scar I am going to show it proudly as a sign of courage,strength ,and bravery.

my badge of strength and bravery...
