I’m lost without my mom and a sister

by

I feel like I am in the middle of the ocean just endlessly floating, there is no destination I am just lost. My mother passed away two and a half months ago, she was my best friend, my confidant, and my partner in crime (she would hate that description.) We talked so many times a day we always knew what each other were doing or where we were going. Most of the time if we were doing anything during the day we did it together. To say I miss her is such an understatement, I don’t really feel there is a word for how I feel.

What I have started thinking about is having a sister. Every single friend of mine has a sister, some are very close to their sister or sisters and others so not as much. I have an older and younger brother, I love my brothers but let’s face it they are boys. I can’t call and complain to them because men are fixers and they always try to fix things. Women listen, and if asked will offer advise, but for the most part women are okay to just be supportive in whatever you may need. I’ve realized I no longer have a woman who is blood related to me in my immediate family.

I wish I had a sister, who knew what growing up in my family was like, who would understand how hard it is to lose your mother and feel lost. I wish I had a sister to call and just talk to as many times a day as needed. I wish I had a sister who knew everything by the look on my face. I wish I had a sister to go to about any and everything. But I don’t, and I never will. I will also never experience what it is like to have a daughter. For the rest of my life I feel like I am responsible for everything family related, being the only woman now is and adjustment.

There are cousins, my mother in law, aunts, and very close friends who feel like a sister or mother but they are not. Call your mom and tell her you love her, tell her all the things you love about her. Call your sister or sisters and do the same, you really never know how long someone has on earth. My mother knew I loved her, I knew she loved me, I knew she was proud of me, but I will never again hear her say those things to me.

We are spreading my mothers ashes at sea this weekend, and I feel it makes everything so final. It is final, she is gone I know that, but I still can’t grasp how that is possible. I still imagine she will walk through my front door at any second, her arms full of food or gifts for her grandkids. When I walk into my parents house I still think she will be in the kitchen or sitting on the couch reading. Almost every single day I have the thought to call my mom, then remember that isn’t possible. I’m hoping my endless floating and feeling of being lost will fade with time, until then I have to remember the great things I do have in my life. I have an incredible husband, son, father, brothers, mother in law, aunts, cousins and great friends. Thank you all who have been there for me, I will never be able to repay you for everything you have done to help me threw this time. Thank you.

Skinny Paleo Banana Almond Muffins

by

This is a delicious paleo banana muffin recipe! My husband asked me to make him some muffins for the morning when he is in a rush to get to work and can’t make a full paleo breakfast. I really didn’t know how they would turn out the first time… let’s just say the second and third time were a major improvement. The muffins are peleo, gluten-free, soy-free, grain-free, and there is NO SUGAR! I was most excited that I didn’t have to add any sweetener or butter to make this delicious.

Pre-heat the oven to 350.

  • 4 Ripe Bananas
  • 5 Tablespoons Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Himalayan Sea Salt

Mash the bananas in a medium bowl.

Bugaboo Runner Stroller Review

by

Bugaboo runnerFinally Bugaboo has come out with the Bugaboo Runner for all of us active moms! The Runner comes as a complete jogging stroller set or for existing Bugaboo owners you may purchase just the chassis. If you currently own a Bugaboo Cameleon³, Bugaboo Bee (2010 model onwards), Bugaboo Donkey and Bugaboo Buffalo seats* they will click into the jogging extension with ease. There are different connecting hooks to make the chassis connect to your current Bugaboo seat. It is very easy to click the seats on and off of the base as seen in the video below.

A great feature on the Bugaboo Runner is the light weight seat, which makes it very easy to switch from one Bugaboo stroller to the other. There is a large basket under the seat for storage for all the things we need for our little ones. The seat is adjustable to either seat facing out or facing you as you jog.

The Bugaboo Runner comes as a complete set for $815, or you may purchase just the chassis from $400 to $425 depending on which Bugaboo you currently own.
