Hello, I’m Lydia. Mom of 6 (4 still live at home) and still getting used to that blessing. I started motherhood in my teens and now am a grandmother. No doubt you have heard of the cat with nine lives. Well, I am its biggest fan. After traveling a rough road I came out on the other side of sanity. Since I have plenty of time on my hand am crazy, I thought I would start a blog about my life, here and now.

Besides recording the everyday family stuff I also blog on these topics.

Special Needs Parenting

Two of my boys struggle with autism from different ends of the spectrum, plus other special needs. I share my struggles with home schooling them and being the mom of a son with epilepsy.

Wellness

I suffer with Motility Disorders and Iron Deficiency Anemia. I have found that eating a low-FODMAPs diet causes me the least distress .  Due to Adult Onset Allergies I follow a yeast and nut free diet. I am a huge fan of eating a more plant-based diet supplemented with fish and the occasional poultry. A relatively new convert to walking and workouts, I plan on adding pilates to my exercise routine real soon.

Tech

As a computer enthusiast, I move between Linux, Windows and Mac on a regular basis. An avid proponent of cross-platform software and open source, I am becoming increasingly platform agnostic. I love discovering new apps and cloud technologies. .

Faith

I follow the Noahide laws. See my About page.
