A small village

On December 26, 2016 I officially started this blog. The intention was to prove that there was humorous side to mental and physical anguish. Not an easy task, but I like a challenge. Last night I realized that I’m steadily growing in followers, nothing dramatic but impressive to me considering I don’t advertise.

It reminded me of a saying- If you make one person happy every day in five years you would have brighten up a small village.

Thank you for being my village.

Dante’s Infernal

When we moved into our new five-plus acres, we were informed that the area of grass surrounding our home – that takes 2 hours to mow with a self-propelled mower – was too much for the garbage can. So the past owners had been dumping it between the fenced yard and horse pasture in a place we like to call the alley.

This did not bother us – we added to the pile ourselves. Once in a while, we would allow our goats to graze on it, but it had finally gone beyond what we could control, so my husband decided to burn it. Bad call on our part.

Even after four days of turning and drenching the pile, it lived on. Smoke smoldering out – filling the house with unhealthy air,  causing my asthma to flair up – Dante’s infernal spewed taunts at us mere mortals who had tried to put it out, but on day five he settled down to a festering torment that lasted another nine days.

Lesson learned from this – don’t burn green grass piles in the summer wait till it’s cold and it will be useful.


Ever Wanted to Know

Today it is one month since I started this blog – I’m impressed with myself for managing to post once a day and to you, my followers – for choosing to follow me. I am truly thankful.

I know that my focus is on the laughter side, but that does not mean that I have not struggled – I have lived through many dark and immobilizing days. As you can start to read about in my Medical History – the Early Years and Raging Twenties. I’m still working on my thirties – it doesn’t get any better. lol But I thought I would open up a Q& A. This is not just for me, but also my husband who has had to learn and cope along with me.

Please ask anything, but be polite and non-graphic as this blog is also open to youngsters. If I get enough questions, we will do a Live-Feed to answer them. If you have a question that you want to ask but not in front of everyone you can contact me personally in Contact Sarah

I’m looking forward to getting to meet you all and answer your questions about mental and physical health issues.
