Feeling broken and upset on a daily basis is rough.  Feeling so uncomfortable in my own skin makes my life so stressful.  Dealing with psoriasis is so mentally exhausting, I can't even explain.  I am currently on Stelara shots which seems to be working sort of.  I still can't wear short sleeve shirts and am slowly coming to the realization that I probably won't ever be able to.  I feel bad because it takes a lot of time away from the kids and my husband.  I tend to not want to go into public anytime my psoriasis flares up, which seems to be more often than not.  The looks that people give to me when they notice sometimes makes it even more unbearable.  I have to be thankful though, of my family they are so supportive in this journey and they are sure to make it known that I do not have to ever feel uncomfortable in my own splotchy skin.  Even with the support my confidence in myself continues to drop.  I am just hoping that someday I will be able to figure out a way to either deal with my life with psoriasis or be psoriasis free.

OK OK OK  I know it is not even Halloween yet, but I can't help starting to get an idea of Christmas lists from my family.  I am not going to skip over Halloween or Thanksgiving, but I am going to start getting prepared and excited for Christmas.  This seems to be the one time a year that people tend to be a little nicer, a little happier, and more willing to help others.  I love decorating my house, making hot chocolate, watching Christmas movies and of course watching my loved ones open their Christmas presents.  I normally don't have anything I want for Christmas, but this year I actually found something I want and I wanted to share it with everyone because I think it is amazing.
I have been wanting a bar in our basement.....well.....since we moved into this house.  I even have a collection of bar stuff that I am determined to use someday in my bar.  The problem is I still want my basement to be super functional for my kids.  I found a solution and I WANT IT FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!

A Pallet Bar.....I found a bunch of pictures of these online and I love them.  I also know the perfect person to make me one  :)   Any other good pallet ideas I should know about?

As I sit here in my warm and comfy bed listening to my dog snore I realize that I am a very lucky woman.  I have a wonderful husband, two fantastic kids, and a life that is hectic but completely worth every minute.  I really should be doing my homework, but my mind keeps wandering away from my studies.
My daughter is a teenager, but you would think she is an adult, completely independent, and even my son is starting to follow in her footsteps.  I realize that I am 34 and soon will be 37 with a daughter in college and a son in high school.  I don't know what happened but somewhere along the way they grew up.  I can't believe it.
My daughter and I sit and look at colleges together and I just want to stop time and say NO, she isn't going to go.  The reality is she will go and my son will follow 4 years later.  My husband and I have big plans for when my kids are all grown up, but it doesn't make it any less harder.

Be sure to cherish every moment with your family  :)
