MyoBuddy Massager

MyoBuddy Massager Pro | Relieving My Chronically Fatigued Body

Living with a chronic illness for me brings on chronic pain and fatigue. In addition to taking care of my family, I work full-time and recently I have been devoting full-time hours to my blog and website. At the end of the day I am exhausted. 

I recently was introduced to MyoBuddy Massager Pro to review and for the last few weeks it has given me new life. I have tried different types of massagers, rollers, balls and constantly nagging my husband to rub my legs or back, so I welcomed this.  My first concern was assuring this massager would be safe and work for me, considering my health issues. I did my research first and found MyoBuddy Massager Pro is good for people with sore muscles: athletes, hard workers, sitters, standers and those recovering from accidents and surgeries. This massager fit my needs perfectly, but with any new product if you have a health condition you should consult your doctor before use. 

Rogue One

Rogue One : A Star Wars Story DVD Release | My Family Are Fans, Except Me

Rogue One

Rogue One : A Star Wars Story Now Available for Purchase

Rogue One : A Star Wars Story is probably one of the most anticipated DVD releases so far this year, specifically for those that didn’t get a chance to see it at the movie theater. To be quite honest, I am probably one of the very few people not into Star Wars. When I was younger I watched the movies all the time, and I recently tried again, but couldn’t; which sucks because my entire family loves all the movies. My husband has introduced our daughter to the older movies so she is a big fan. Our son is too young to understand “the force”, but that doesn’t stop him from getting to know the characters. 

Rogue One

When we were asked to review a copy of Rogue One : A Star Wars Story before the DVD release 4/4/17, my husband more than welcomed the idea.
