IMG_20171031_180913_121Hello again home! I am back from our trip to Florida!! IMG_20171101_105227_909let us re-cap all the fun; before the explainations.. NO SEIZURES during the trip! :) okay now, lol, the day before we left was Halloween, i went over my Grandma’s and we passed out candy to all the cute kids. the next morning super early our flight left from Detroit to Orlando, which was kind of cute, another first in our relationship which was flying together :) Once we reached Florida, got our car, & got to our villa leon and the guys didn’t want to waste no time on going on up to the fields and checking everything out from the layouts, the stores, to who and what was there lol.

over the course of the four days we were there we spent the mornings at the IMG_20171103_162223_285paintball fields, the afternoons out at the pools, everyone would meet up someone for dinner each night, then everyone would meet up at OUR hotel room (why ours idk lmao) and IMG_20171105_150057_378get fucked up the rest of the night. our patio was a complete mess everynight. we cleaned it so many times, and i mean took BAG fulls of trash out and it still continued to get trashed with alcohol bottles, cigg remains etc. messy dudes! the nights were the wild times lol there was this security guard who came and drank n smoked with all them, shot the paintball gun at IMG_20171103_151321_0204am at trees, lol oh man he was wild. he was something else, he was doing shots of patron and showing us his knife with brass knuckles haha. one night a dude from paintball wanted to come out to our hotel and another guy sent him on a wild goose chase out to a waffle house. oy! florida was something else! i was able to see my cousin gabby who came up to the paintball field with her boyfriend, that was a lot of fun and awesome to see her because it has been so many years! her and her boyfriend live in florida. love you gabba gabba ♥

IMG_20171105_232322_293

the last day of florida once all the paintball was over (and no the guys did not win first place, they ended up winning 19th out of like 60 which is still awesome) after all the guys left it was just me and leon, we ended up going to disney springs walking around together. shopping and having fun on our last night :) this morning we woke up, returned our car, and headed home back to detroit. i am happy to be home, and happier to be back with my pups n kitty! xoxo When we were in FL & each time we would call home to check on the dogs, leons dad had us on speaker phone, and they go crazy barking in excitement hearing my voice ♥♥

Mullets

If it’s not one thing, it’s another… to start of october this past week i experienced many multiple seizure’s (no worries, i’m okay!). I have posted before how my seizure’s have negatively impacted my teeth or tongue because of biting down, most painfully the TMJ (pain in the jaw joint). this past week from all the seizure’s i am THINKING a huge chunk of my last left molar chipped off during an episode, exposing the nerves? Giving me a major toothache! I am happy to say i went to urgent care for pain IMG_20171002_183608_733meds & saw a Dentist!! So… My AEDs (Anti Epileptic Drugs) cause dry mouth, which can cause soreness of the mouth, gum disease, and cavity-causingbacteria. Delightful! So the extra saliva most people have provides enzymes to help digest food, protects teeth from decay by neutralizing harmful acids, and keeps oral tissues healthy. As for my toothache, the tooth IS broken & I had it removed on Monday! My phillycheesecake cutie took care of me, gave me soup, meds, and put me to bed etc. Myyyyyy best friend is like 83 & a champion at making me feel better after surgery! thank you so much grandma for all your tender love ♥ and affection xoxo. The next day i was pretty much fine.

IMG_20171004_151112_984My grandma has been doing SO great obviously since her surgery, we even started this month off with a little girls trip on wednesday, just me and her, off up to Frankenmuth! I mean just a few short weeks after her surgery and she is just so determined to take back her independance i am so proud of her! we took things very slow, but enjoyed ourselves and had fun all the same. we of course after lunch HAD to vist Bronner’s the worlds largest christmas store before we headed home lol!

IMG_20171005_135916_460Since all that I have been spending time with Abby & more paintball fun :) Trying to soak up the end of Summer before fall really hits. It has still been so wonderful everyday outside! Oh andIMG_20171016_140700_038 today me and my grandma went to the Sanders Grand Reopening today!!! It was very overwhelming to see so0o0o many visitors shopping and seeing what’s new! the awesome chocolate waterfall is one amazing & SWEET addition to the newly remodeled store! lol loving it!! at the reopening they passed out tons of free goodies, had tours & a caricature artist who me and had draw a picture of us :) all my hair in the picture makes my grandma’s hair look like a mullet! lmao! a day well spent today!

Two Be Wed

WEDDINGS! lol butttt before i get to all the wedding fun maddness lets back up a tad to some craziness! After our trip to Indiana (which we took first place!) I came home with a crazy rash that was spreading all over from my face to my chest! I quickly got to the doctors in which he declared I had poison Ivy! after he gave me some meds and told me to keep not itching, the rash kept spreading all over my face, to my arms, to my stomach, and IMG_20170812_161622_645more on my chest! of course i went back to the doctors! he said to be patient and wait for the “poison ivy” to go away! and it was SO ITCHY! oy! unfortunately it looked as though i was going to have this crap on my face for awhile so it was going to be all over for Zack’s wedding (leons cousin) & to Eric’s wedding (our friend)! OH & —SIDE SALAD— while I was in Indiana last week I found my FIRST painted rock!!! I am pumped to find more and have plans to paint my own and epilepsy awareness rocks!

IMG_20170819_210826_481Alrighty, so last week friday we went up north IMG_20170818_152311_741Michigan to Gaylord for his cousin’s wedding for the day, i wore my green dress and it was a beautiful August day for a wedding! they had a wonderful ceremony and reception! we had a great time! his family is a hoot at gatherings, let me tell youuuuu! lol sadly we had to leave earlier than most because we had to get home to our pups with Dad as no one was home to care for them =/ but I am glad we made the trip to go! after that the weekend was filled with the start of FANTASY FOOTBALL! leons leagues got together at places to make up their teams as i did some simming XD lmao. terrible!

IMG_20170826_210739_718

IMG_20170826_131831_158this past week came eric & jaimie’s wedding fun! because we went to Zacks wedding I missed Jaimie’s bachelorette party, butttt we got together for their wedding rehersal, the guys had their verry berry memorable bachelor party! the day before yesturday ( the wedding) us girls got together to get our nails done then all of us went out to a Ted Nugent concert lol. random but thats what they love haha!  Yesturday was their wedding! they had an outdoor wedding by a creek under a gazeebo immediately following with the reception where we gabbed and danced all night ♥

A-O-Kay

IMG_20170724_173609_243since my grandma’s injury and surgery i had been keeping busy with caring for her AS MUCH as i can! she has such a hard time dressing herself, showering, and getting normal things done.. such as writing out checks for her bills! i have been trying to go over her house as much as possible! not only me but a lot of my family has been stoping by, she is also VERY bored! she cannot drive, get out etc so we are trying to keep her company & happy as well as comfortable. i set up a puzzle on her table she can work on over time because she can only use one arm right now. other than with her, while i am home i have been IMG_20170727_124837_159playing a lot of sims (which i STILL have TWO and wanting 4 to keep my mind busy, or i have abby over to put a smile on my face, which of course is a given! haha! so, after my grandma’s surgery she started having a nurse come over and care for her, so the need for me to come over has been a bit less as she regains her independence through rehab. i am happy about this but i feel like i have fallen into a bit of a .. depression. just a little meh everything is hitting me because i was being so strong for so long kinda thing. IMG_20170730_181702_053but i will be a-o-kay :) happy things like family and friends pull me out of it everytime. i was keeping busy as time went on, as july turned into August – all of a sudden time didn’t stand still any longer because of her injury as family canoeing trips happened, friend trips to the zoo took place, paintball trips to Indiana planned, & with family & friend wedding plans ahead! time is fleating once again…

IMG_20170805_210638_446the first weekend of August held our annual Tysar Canoe trip IMG_20170805_171107_065(leaving behind a family member to check on gma of course) which came with a FIRST, the little kids came along! memories to last a lifetime, pictures we will cherish forever, & many more years of fun ahead! Next weekend will hold me and leons FIRST TRIP OUT OF STATE TOGETHER! haha he has a paintball tournament in Indiana, and if they win it will help them get a playing spot in the World Cup Tournament in Florida next November! (info to come in later posts!) I am excited to go to Indiana!

Seizures? My focus on grandma has been so strong the stress didnt effect me? or so thats what i am going with? i dont know, i was totally fine! i tried my absolute best to take care of me reguarding sleep and eating – as for now, everything is feeling a tad wonky but no seizures just yet. i dont really wanna say anything because i dont want leon to miss the indiana trip or me miss the indiana trip… very childish behavior at 30 I KNOW but it is so hard to not want to enjoy life when really you DONT KNOW what could happen, to stay home and nothing happens when you could be out SUCKS. it SUCKS. blah!

Grat·i·tude

grat·i·tude – the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. :) I am feeling very greatful today as i got my letter of acceptance for disability in the mail ♥ as many of you follow my blog and public Epilepsy Fight Facebook Page, i do not work/drive, and have been fighting for disability since 2009! A recap on the story ;; in 2009 i applied, was denied & accepted the answer and went out to try working with my disorder again. after two jobs & many issues they both let me go because of the disorder problems, i tried. i applied again in 2012 and was denied 3 times over the years, but re applied with a laywer each time and went to court two times. today, may 9th 2017, i was finally NOT denied. i will not be getting all the years back pay and have agreed to it, i do not want to fight for the back pay and look greedy, i have so much gratitude for the monthly payment i will not be receiving! #GodIsGood

IMG_20170502_102839_993also giving me smiles, I’ve been spending a lot of time with Abby Marie the past few weeks, she has really been enjoying coming over my house and playing with me. We have a lot of fun togetherIMG_20170505_105624_389 and our little routine’s with crafts, nail painting, snuggling, bubble baths, cleaning (she loves it i promise lol), and just plain goofing off haha. she is my silly nilly and i love her lots and lots. she has grown so fast! i cannot believe she will be turning FOUR this month! so crazy! I love you so much little lady!!!

IMG_20161226_035945_752 then saturday was new years eve! we all headed over to steve’s and went CRAZY in the food department! lol we are all nuts. so we had lots of fun all night of course and midnight came too soon lol. we all stayed the night and did breakfast the next morning with left overs lol. THENNNNN because everyone was too drunk to play any board games new years eve lol steve n linds came over new years day for game night haha.

Christmas 2016

another christmas in the books! plans that were made changed a little bit but mostly went through. IMG_20161224_212351_371christmas eve leon and i relaxed then went to his aunts at 1pm and enjoyed a lot of fun with the family until about 9pm. we played new games, i won a round of LCR, and we got goofy funny white elephant gifts. the fun seems to of course be spending time together, but watching the little ones grow and enjoy being young together :) it is fun to watch, to talk and laugh about etc. it makes christmas just that much more special when little ones are around i think. sooooo after we left his aunts we went home to wait for santa! not really, like i said in my last post, we know everything we got, and i wrapped the gifts, even the ones i got haha. (anti climactic.) so, lol really we went home, i cleaned a little, and he passed out on the couch. i put all the gifts under the tree and went to bed.

Christmas morning leon and i slept in! which i NEVER so on christmas lol. we opened our gifts one by one even knowing what they all were then made breakfast and relaxed. once we got ready to go over my aunts house we stopped by leons parents house for a little while to visit and see what abby got from santa :) IMG_20161225_180802_047my aunts house was fun! this year some people who normally visit, visited other sides of their families (its so hard to choose and make everyone happy! especialy with kiddos!) so the TYSAR clan was a lot smaller this year. after my aunts we all headed over to steve’s house for his annual POKER GAME! IMG_20161226_025000_257 even tho we ended up playing black jack haha. steve and linds announced they are back together (OMG YAY) and we stayed the night! which followed the next day sleeping in, breakfast made by the couple lol. once me and leon got home the next day we PASSED OUT! lol for like three days now haha! christmas was amazing as usual!

this past weekend has been a lot of fun!!! it was another #TYSARTIME weekend! my uncle jay got some time off from work and was about to fly up to michigan from florida to visit! we always try to make the most of it as we can when he comes in because we love and miss him so much!  on friday the whole family got together and went to this hidden gem auto museum that is not open the time! Stahl’s is a collection filled with cars, signs, music machines, memorbilia, etc! the family broke apart and enjoyed the place a lot. leon really enjoyed it as it reminded him a lot of his late grandpa with all the old antique cars! me and leon plan on bringing our dads back in june for fathers day! :) after the auto museum we all went to lunch together & 15349703_10154765499974591_7414931324248572510_nthen met up againnnn on sunday for christmas cooking making! ironically it ended up being december 4th which is national cooking making day! haha so we celebrated by making tons and tons and tons of cookies! we made (my favorite of course) tripple batch of peanut butter kiss cookies, sugar cookies (some frosted), white chocolate macedemia nut, chocolate chip w/almonds & coconut,  chocolate chip, lemon squares, cherry nut squares, & powdered date nut balls!!!!!! i have them ALL in my freezer. typing it all out it’s a lot lmao. and shockingly on wednesday i am going back over to my grandma’s house with my mom to make 2 more desserts and another batch of kiss cookies to use up the rest of the chocolate kisses my grandma has unwrapped hahahaha! so we have been getting into the spirit of christmas for sure!! as you all prepare for the joy of Christmas, what traditions does your family have? Is it attending a special Christmas liturgy each year? Is it enjoying a delicious stolen or coffee cake baked from your grandmother’s recipe?

future fun !!!! wedding at the end of january next month in Naples Florida! i am beyond excited and beyond getting anxious and scared lol. i have not flown since i went to italy in 7th grade before 9/11.. so that’s kinda eh. my seizure’s have been good and under control, i haven’t had any major seizures for 36 days today! yay! but i dont know where i will be then, idk. just need to stay calm. ahhhhh. calllmmm.

November

It’s November and November is Epilepsy Awareness Month!!! I of course am online doing my part to spread awareness etc all month long :) 20161116_152959 I put a purple ribbon in my tree outside my house, and of course i painted my pumpkin last month for halloween purple as well. (picture in last post). and so far i havent had a seizure since Oct. 28th! this month is also the presidential election! my choice of vote for a 3rd party has changed – but i think it will come down to the last few moments when i will really decide, and i really think a lot of people are voting that way this year unfortunately because our candidates are not thee best of choices to have .. but it is what we have. this month is ALSO my birthday month! whoa nelly i am going to be thirty years old this year on the 29th! i am excited but ive been unhappy about it a few times as well. lol so as i say each year because i anticipate the day all month long i celebrate #29daysofCassie lmao! which has officially started now lol. we even img_20161106_131939have planned a casino trip in my honor coming up on the 17th with the friends & we are all staying at the hotel! should be fun! so this month is exciting in many ways! so far ive celebrated all saints day and all souls day with my class as we attended mass together :) today i enjoyed the day painting a lot as gifts for people (painting page to be added in December) while leon watched football, then tomorrow, i am going out to SOS for a new ID! hoping it comes in the mail before the casino trip!!!!
