As a busy Nana, I’m constantly juggling my roles of Mother, Wife, Nana, Full-Time Project Manager, Crafter, Athlete, and most of all a Warrior. I have Fibromyalgia and like any other chronic condition, it is part of how I plan my busy life, not how I control my life.
My grandmother was a huge influence on my life. I could even say that she was my first life coach. She taught me the things I was interested in but did not force me to learn from her when I was not engaged. I hope to pass on any advice that you are interested in.
With over 25 years of corporate experience and an MBA, I raised children while working and I know that you can too.
I have two sons that are in their 20’s. One lives further away and has started his professional career. His brother is still learning what his professional career will be and studying.
Remarried in 2018 and now have a larger blended family. There are 2 families that my loving husband Grant, aka Big Daddy, was a stepdad incorporated into the family with his previous marriage. With that, there are 4 young adults, 1 teen, and 2 children in the grand-kids generation. We will soon have a great-grandchild. Wow!
My crafts are my stress-reliever. At some point, smaller craft shows will be on the agenda as I add inventory to Etsy. My husband, Grant, aka Big Daddy, just finished my craft room and I’m getting to play with my creative side.
Dirt therapy in the yard helps me stay centered as it calls to the farmgirl that I once was a long time ago. We were blessed with a huge amount of yardwork when we purchased a home that had only been owned by the architect and his family. They were of more advanced age and had let a lot of the yard fall apart.
Pilates, Yoga, Golf, Bicycling, and Walking help keep me fit. Occasionally, a fun 5K and maybe some Sprint Triathlons. I enjoyed sprint triathlons in 2013 thru 2015 even with Fibromyalgia. I hope to get that part of my life back soon.
This Fibro Warrior is constantly moving like the rest of the world. Either your very busy life or a chronic condition, can easily stress your nerves and schedule. At the same time, we all need to find a feed a passion to live a full life! I hope to help you through my stories.
It would make my day to connect with you on your fave network below.
Whatever you do, do you!
Not Crazy Nana
