Washington DC: The State Plaza Hotel Review

Washington DC: The State Plaza Hotel Review

Last week, my husband and I went on a much needed vacation. This trip was very different to other trips we have taken because I needed my wheelchair. This opened up the possibilities for issues during the trip. Because of this, I want to do reviews of the place we stayed, how we traveled, the things we did and the places we ate and I will be including accessibility as part of my reviews. I am going to begin with…

Easy Peasy Baked Ziti

The Barometric Pressure started dropping around 3 am and has continued to drop…

Why I Hesitate to Use My Mobility Devices

Why I Hesitate to Use My Mobility Devices

Over the past couple of years, my ability to walk long distances had decreased drastically. Very little activity will leave me exhausted and sweating profusely. I made a decision to get two different types of mobility devices so I can get out of the house for longer periods of time. There is just one problem, I am hesitant to use them. I guess I have to admit here that pride is one of the reasons that I am not eager…

When I was growing up the other kids had a dad and I didn’t. The other…
