Straight Talk with My Faburo Back Brace!

By ducktapegurl | Jan 22, 2015 | 2 Comments

I’ve had back problems pretty much since they started screening for scoliosis in my middle school.  I was one of the ‘lucky ones’ that had to go see an orthopedic doctor because something ‘didn’t look right.’  Anyhoo, I have had exercises, home remedies,, physical therapy,  you name it, I’ve tried it.  I was even fitted for a back brace by my doctor.  However, I was told that I couldn’t wear it all the time and it would make me look 15 pounds heavier.  Oh, and I wouldn’t be able to bend easily in it.  No big deal though, right?

Sometimes I find myself busier during the winter than the summer!  Then other times, it feels like I’m going to kill somebody if I don’t find something to do outside of the house.  As you know, I also pride myself on finding free or reasonably priced events.  I am here to tell you that there are still a ton of fun, free (or low cost) events in your area, even in the winter.  Trust me.  We live in a beach town so if I can find stuff, you can too.  Some of the places that we find things to do…

It’s that time of year again, when your kids have the perpetual runny nose!  I could hardly wait. I hate having to carry around a mountain of tissues in my pocket, only to the have the kids run away from me, screaming.  After awhile, their little noses start to get red and chapped from all the wiping!  Then the tissues start to hurt their nose.  If you use a baby wipe, it’s just gross. Have you ever tried that?!?  Yuck!  What’s a mommy to do?
