About Me

I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire! Let's talk and learn how a blog can expand your business.

Today Robby embarks on his newest venture: guitar lessons. In anticipation of his lessons, he has been practicing with his Daddy for the past few days. Hearing them strum their guitars in the evening brings a smile to my heart. I suspect that Scott and I are looking forward to his lesson almost as much as Robby!

In addition to his music lesson, today will be busy with meetings and obligations. After spending the past few days outside playing, my work have been piling up. Today is supposed to rain, which is the perfect opportunity for me to settle in and get to work.  Hopefully Timmy will be content to practice his letters, play with his toys and watch cartoons for a few hours. 

Not only do I need to chip away at my growing to-do list, but I think my leg is desperate for a break. Over the past few days I have developed a bruise on the bottom of my limb. While it isn't enough to keep me immobile, it is becoming increasingly sore as I walk and run. I think a day with minimal walking will go a long way towards healing.

I am frustrated with the never ending cycle of leg issues. It feels like I have been ping ponging between feeling okay (never great) and battling an issue. I just want to be comfortable all the time! I'm beginning to feel like I'm chasing windmills in the quest for total comfort.

Despite my growing frustrations. I'm going to continue to work on the socket issues. I deserve to feel comfortable and strong. Giving up is not an option!
