Being lifted into place Being lifted into place Looking down at the floor of the roof in front I saw some items that, even though it had been over 20 years, their names came rushing to me. Prussik loop, spectra cord, a Figure Eight on a bight and a couple of daisy chains. These were things I had used extensively in the 1990s, when I ran a challenge course for the local school district where I taught. My mind began drifting back to that time. Climbing and rappelling were part of most days when I would be hosting one of the grades from the school. I could remember the feelings of freedom, self-control and exhilaration as I controlled my descent to the ground. Suddenly a loud voice broke my daydreaming and I was quickly brought back to reality. It was June 9, 2018 and I was being prepared to rappel off a 16-story building…

The Alzheimer’s Circus

Published May 9, 2018 by zuzusays

Your writing is so honest and real. I don’t know how to thank you for sharing such intimate thoughts with us, but I believe it will be really meaningful to so many people for many years to come. I wish I lived close to you so we could spend time together talking. You are teaching us to walk with you on this journey and walk with those we love as we care for them. Thank you.

Suddenly Mad- The Alzheimer_s Circus

Alzheimer’s is a terminal disease that changes the brain. Along the way, many who have it go, what is known in the common vernacular, as completely crazy. This is the main reason the disease is severely stigmatized. It’s why some who have Alzheimer’s end up in psychiatric hospitals, and are prematurely placed in memory care.  It’s why many of these folks get medicated (medical restraint). I’ve read on the spouse forum on www.alzconnected.org about the spouses that become psychotic and wanderers, become violent and even criminally insane, and are institutionalized. I myself have been to the edge and back, my poor family members have witnessed behaviors in me in this disease, I shudder to think about when I remember. The difference between the crazy of Alzheimer’s and the crazy of say, schizophrenia or psychosis is that they are not fatal illnesses (although they can and often do shorten a person’s…

MelodySusie Portable LED Nail Lamp – Violetilac 6W Mini Nail Dryer Curing LED GEL Nail Polish Professionally – White – Review

Available at Amazon.com

I bought it off the American Amazon because the similar version on the Canadian was $50, .com has it for $10.99 USD.. I bought a top coat gel, and the lamp and with duties taxes shipping etc it was $32 CAD so it was a better price than buying off the Canadian site.

I was a little nervous because I had never done anything like this at home on my own, I love having my nails painted I always feel more confident and put together but I absolutely dislike having to paint my nails. I find most polishes won’t last me a full day without chipping except for one brand I recently found but I always Loved having my nails done with gels and shellacs but…

CREATIVE PLAY – NAIL LACQUER/BASE/TOP COAT

Retails for $6.99 (CAD)

I was selected to receive this for free for testing purposes from Chick Advisor & CDN Canada. #LoveCNDCreativePlay #GotItFree

TOP COAT –  I’ve used a lot of top coats and they either don’t work and still chip the same day, or they bubble, take forever to dry or it’s so thick it doesn’t spread properly! But this formula is absolutely perfect, no over powering scent and goes on insanely smoothly and dries quickly! Gave me salon quality nails at home with a regular old top coat.

BASE COAT – I’ve never been big on the whole ‘base coat’ because I thought of it as too time consuming but oh my goodness it makes my nails look so insanely gorgeous! It’s totally salon quality and a GREAT price! It dries surprisingly fast, and applies easily, I adore it. Will definitely continue using…
