Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Many people who are close to me..know that St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite days.  I am not Irish….at least I don’t think I am, but there is just something about a day dedicated to the color green!  It also makes me feel proud of my four-leaf clover tattoo that I went behind my parents back in High School to get.  I lied & said it was a temporary, but my mom caught on when it was still there 6 months later. Oops! She forgave me quickly, so I was lucky.  I don’t think that she wanted to admit it…but she liked it as well.  haha.  Kelly green is also my favorite color & I have always found it to be lucky for me.  And I have a Shamrock plant that has been alive for about 4 years now! So there you go!  All this reasoning comes together & explains why “I love St. Paddy’s Day”!

It has been a pretty good week here at Casa de Eagle.  Over the last couple of months my mom has developed a new ALS symptom.  It has been extremely frustrating & mentally waring on all of us at times.  My mom has been feeling sensations of things on her skin.  Sometimes she feels like it is dry skin that needs to be peeled off, or she feels string, or loose teeth in her mouth.  I know, kind of crazy.  At times my mom has been consumed by wanting me to find the thing that is bothering her & gets frustrated when I cannot.  At first I was wondering if this was a mental thing….but she is still sharp as a tack!  Our only conclusion can be that her body is for some reason sending signals to her brain of her feeling things. Over a troublesome couple of months…my mom has finally come to the conclusion that nothing is there.  This conclusion came with her needing lots of proof.  We are thankful that the feelings have subsided over the last few days & continue praying that these feeling will go away.  Frustration = unhappy mama Jules & frustrated Kelly.

Aside from those feelings, we have been enjoying the crazy good weather outside.  We can actually see grass in our yard today!  Amen!!!!  We have enjoyed some days running errands outdoors & having lots of visitors!  Thank you to all of the peeps that have been over lately.  Your visits always mean so much to my mom & I!

Jenna was in the St. Paddy’s Day Parade in St. Paul today for the Swarm.  It was just her, another performance team member & Buzz the mascot.  Here is a link to a super short little video of them living it up.  She said she had a great time!


And lastly, I was able to grab dinner with some girlies last night.  I think I forgot to mention, but my “bestie” Kate is pregnant!  I am so over the moon thrilled for her!  It is her & hubbies 1st child.  I think it is a girl.  I am psychic you know!  Our friend Jana is also pregnant with her second child & a month ahead of Kate.  Neither lady looks prego!


Kate, Jana, me, Dana & Ericka


Thanks for a fun evening ladies!

And that is all for today!  Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

Prayer for Julie: Pray for continued peace from her new sensations in her body
