You may know someone who has cancer and wonder what you can do. I have found that many people are not sure what to say or do to help. One of the best things you can do is to be there for them. One thing I really find helpful is just something as simple as a hug. Many times I feel alone and all I want is to know that someone cares. Sometimes a shoulder to cry on or someone to talk to is nice. It’s a lonely long journey we are on.
My family lives in Wisconsin and I am in Oregon so my family can’t just stop by and drop off dinner or help me clean. If those are things you can do they would mean the world to someone. A friend from back home had arranged for a group of people to send me small gifts in the mail. It was such a nice surprise; and I didn’t even know the all the ladies. The gifts included Grub Hub gift cards, some hats, gift cards and other treats.
One thing I have found that I really treasure are text and emails letting me know that someone cares and is thinking and praying for me. It doesn’t cost you anything and makes my day.
Hugs and prayers to all of you going through this rough road. I am here if you need to talk!
Turmeric is one of nature’s best kept secrets. What is turmeric? Turmeric is a super spice that contains curcuminoids which provide healthy inflammation response and antioxidant benefits.
Rex has arthritis which is the most common joint disorder in the United States. He often wakes up in pain and does not always want to take pain killers. After doing some research we found that turmeric is a often used in Ayurvedic medicine. We decided to give it a try after checking with our doctor first to make sure it won’t interact with medications Rex was already taking.
We found Youtheory had a extra strength formula and wanted to give it a try. Rex takes two capsules a day. He has found after taking for a couple weeks he does get some relief.
What makes Youtheory Turmeric special is the Curcumin c3 complex which is 20x more absorbable than ordinary turmeric. This makes for better effectiveness and efficiency!
We believe in Youtheory. Founded in 2010 by Darren and Patty Rude, Youtheory is one of the original collagen supplement brands. Today, they have grown into one of the largest manufacturers of collagen and turmeric in the U.S. You can find the product Rex takes HERE .

I am so excited to be back working on my blog again – it is one of my favorite things to do. The last few years have had lots of ups and downs for me. The best thing that happened is that I got married. I am now Kay Tiffin! I was married June 30, 2018 to Rex – he is a great man.
We have had a great couple years and hope for many more!
My family had some bad times too – like so many other of you. One of my brothers passed away unexpectedly – darn cancer! My mother is suffering from dementia and in memory care.
Then came 2019 and Covid 19. This has touched all of our lives – mostly not in a good way. I worked in the Travel Industry for the same company the last 20+ years. I was furloughed in March of 2020 and am still looking for a job.
Like everyone else I am tired of this – I am tired of being home while my husband is gone all day. It gets so lonely and depressing at time. So I decided I need to do things I love – and my blog is one thing! I will be reviewing products and books. Sharing recipes and craft projects. I am hoping to get healthy along the way too! Let me know what you would like to hear about. I am so glad to be back and grateful for all of you! I hope for only the best for you all.
“I received free Werther’s Original® products in order to host the Werther’s Original® sponsored MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own.” Last Saturday we had Rex’s family over for a fun Munch ‘n Movie night. I was so excited to be hosting a movie party along with some great tasting Werther’s Original Caramel Popcorn.
I couldn’t wait for Saturday night to come. We had some great snacks and also a movie I had been wanting to watch for awhile. Here is a bit about the movie Soul Surfer.
The Sony Pictures, family-friendly film, Soul Surfer SOUL SURFER is the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. The film features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid. In the wake of this life-changing event that took her arm and nearly her life, Bethany’s feisty determination and steadfast beliefs spur her toward an adventurous comeback that gives her the grit to turn her loss into a gift for others. Starring Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid, AnnaSophia Robb, Lorraine Nicholson and Carrie Underwood.
When Saturday night came I had made up a great tasting snack to go along with the movie. Since there is a chill in the air I also had hot apple cider for who ever wanted it. I made some Caramel Popcorn Snack Mix – here is the recipe. It was so easy to do.
Here is Rex enjoying his snack. We don’t spend enough time with our families so it was so nice to have Rex’s sister and her family over. Everyone really enjoyed the Werther’s Original® Caramel Popcorn both just as is an the snack mix I made up.
If you are looking for a good movie you will love Soul Sufer both Tracie and I ended up crying during it. I love how the movie talked about faith and how that gets you through a tough time. I also love that this was a true story. Bethany is truly a remarkable person and we can all learn from her to never give up.
When the night was done – I had plenty of the Werther’s Original® Caramel Popcorn to send home with everyone. What I loved about the Werther’s Original® Caramel Popcorn is that it had a nice rich and creamy caramel flavor. Once you start eating it I had a hard time stopping. It also reminded me of a neighbor we had growing up that made caramel popcorn balls.
All and all everyone had a great night and we spent time with family and friends with some good memories of the time spent together. I can’t wait till the next time we can be together.
