I am finally done with everything I planned on doing to update the house. Here are some before and after pictures. My plans was to add more color, get rid of the carpet and to create a play area for Zoey. New paint and flooring all done by me. I took advantage of the down time from flare ups. After serving 8 years in the Air Force; fixing sections, volunteering, working on my degree, taking care of Zoey and Mike and home. Somewhere along the way I forgot that I have to take care of myself too. I fell very ill in summer 2016, started with a rash that spread around my body with round patches all over my body, I took 3 rounds of steroids and it didn’t help much. As the summer came to an end my skin rash got better and I thought nothing of it. At that point I got pregnant so everything else I felt I blamed it on the pregnancy, it persisted after I gave birth and even got worst and I thought to myself that I am recovering from pregnancy I need to go workout and get strong again. I did what I could, but always felt sick, tired and in intense pain all the time. Finally after Zoey’s first birthday last year I went to the doctor asking for help and I was told it’s just seasonal allergies take Zyrtec. I did that for 3 more months with no relief. Went to doctor again June of last year and she ran a bunch of test and I tested positive for autoimmune antibodies and very high on some antibodies. I was given a referral to a rheumatologist and waited 3 months for an appointment. In the mean time I was still working hard, taking care of my family, my brain was foggy, my hands wouldn’t work, turn purple and become stiff. I would cry on the phone with nurse who provided no help. At that point I decided I need to focus on myself because I have Zoey and Mike depending on me for everything, I am all they have. So I applied to separate from Air Force to focus on myself and my family. So now that I am home, I am still working hard but for myself and it feels good.
We have a serious debate going on in our house about what kind of sprinkles are the best. I prefer the little rods (jimmies), my girls love the tiny balls (nonpareils), and my hubby loves the flat circles (quins). Which ones are your favorite? Comment below and help us settle the debate! 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

It’s nap time at the zoo 🐶🐶 I’m not feeling great today, nauseous and erratic blood sugars so I’m going to join the hounds and have a little lay down. Tomorrow is day 10 without hoovering or mopping because of the house treatment so I need to rest up for the full house blitz that will be happening tomorrow 🧼🚽🧹🧺🛏
