Sundays In My City

I’m pleased to be participating in Unknown Mami’s Sundays In My City for the first time!

SIMC

It has been a dream of mine to actually be able to live in a place that has a quaint downtown and I realized that dream when I moved earlier this month to historic Willoughby, Ohio.

The Cleveland suburb held it’s annual Rib Cook-off this weekend to benefit the USO. There was facepainting, live music and ribs from 14 local restaurants.

I sampled six out of the 14 before calling it quits.

It was my first downtown Willoughby experience and I am excited for a lot more to come!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
