Sprains, Strains and Boy Mom Life



The full effects of boy mom life.  Back to school functions are a prime time for shenanigans.  Especially when you haven’t seen your friends for a bit.  And, well, someone is always going to get injured. It just seems to be inevitable.  We were the lucky recipients this time around.   It’s just the luck of the draw, as they say.  

So here we are on the couch, foot elevated, wrapped and iced.  Typical treatment.  What isn’t typical, although in my opinion should be, is that under that wrap, I gently rubbed Young Living’s Copaiba Essential Oil over the bruising and inflammation.

Copaiba is amazing as a helpful aid in inflammation reduction and to help ward off stiffness.  


Both major problems with a strained/sprained ankle. 

In our experience, since it’s not too major a strain, the wrap will be off tomorrow and he’ll be back on the karate mat within 48 hours.  

Copaiba is definitely a must for the first aid kit, and it’s a starter kit oil.  So you’re guaranteed to get it if you have a kit. 

I’ll be back soon!

Covid-19: A Message From A Front Line Health Care Worker

Hello friends, I hope this message finds you well.  Through out the recent weeks, and the onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been struggling on what to say.  I have been trying to keep a positive outlook, telling myself that we'll be okay. That everything will go back to normal eventually, but as we've seen, so much changes from day to day that it's hard to know what the future holds right now. It's scary. It can be overwhelming. We've never seen anything like this. Some of us are in major hotspots and some, thankfully, are in more sheltered pockets. The reality of the situation is that we are all affected. I am writing this from my home office, a place that I have spent much much more time in recently, especially in the wake of the governor of Colorado, Jared Polis' stay-at-home orders. Being that I am a member of the media, I have been deemed "essential." Like many of us, I have special documentation from Washington, D.C. that

I Slept Funny And Now I'm Dying

Okay, maybe not "dying," but omg. I woke up and realized it hurts to turn my head. TURN MY HEAD.  I have such a massive knot in the left side of my neck, it would make a sea captain proud...or at least my old Girl Scout troop leader. And why, you ask? Why am I in such horrendous pain? What is the cause of this completely over-dramatic post?  I flipping SLEPT WRONG.  Seriously. My neck hurts, because I apparently slept standing on my head while breakdancing. That's the only position I can think of that would make any sense for how I'm feeling right now. I really don't mind aging, I just mind the "my body is falling apart" part of aging. As a kid, I could sleep on just a blanket on a concrete floor with no pillow and wake up the next day feeling AWESOME. Now, I basically need to have a heating pad on top of a Tempurpedic on top of another Tempurpedic on top of a fluffy cloud just to wake up feeling like I may've been human at on
