my crazy world!

Saturday, November 08, 2014

This month seems to be holding its own craziness already. First off, my fil has been dealing with bladder stones, he's set for surgery on Dec 4th on his kidneys and prostate. I guess they're going to see if the cancer has come back. Plus they'll take care of the stones in his bladder. My sister has an ekg set for Monday this coming week. She keeps blacking out and then don't know why. Then my mom is going in for a complete upper and lower .gi scan to see what's going on with her stomach. Also I guess her husband was in the .er for gallstones and they found one caught between his pancreas and gallbladder. Life hasn't been gentle with me lately and I want to run away!! Why does it say in the bible that the Lord only gives you what you can handle? I don't know how much more I can deal with without going crazy!! Its too much if you ask me but I've not got any say to any of it. When you think about me please say a quick prayer that all will work out in his time and to his will! I certainly don't have any control over anything ....thanks!

    Stay calm and try meditating in all this craziness. It won't make it go away but it will help you.

  Oh yes, you have control. You can control how you yield to the grace of God, how often you pray, how you trust the Creator of heaven and earth, the Healer and Provider of your body and soul. You have control. You can also choose to rest: rest in the Word, rest in the promises, rest in the arms of your Beloved Savior. Therefore, you can Control the Rest of your life by choosing the Way of the Lord (which I think you already have).

I'm too relieved to grieve!

Wednesday, November 05, 2014

My life is changing yet once again. My mom has hired someone else to do my job with my sister and I'm not upset by it! I feel as though the weight of the world has been lifted off me and about 100lbs lighter. As the song says, I'm too relieved to grieve. I have picked up two more clients and yes the pay may be less, and it's dropped me to 20 hours s week between them and my current client, but I'm not worried about it at all. I'm doing just the opposite, for the first time I'm at complete peace with it. I've discovered I enjoy caring for older people, I just wish I'd realized it 15 years ago and I wouldn't have wasted so much time with other stuff. Goes to show you, its not always safe to follow someone else's dreams for you. I finally love my job after all this time. Yes it has its bad times and my heart gets broken when loose someone, but just knowing I was there for even a little bit and got to know them, I'm ok with it. I'm not hard hearted, I'm a caring person who wants to make others lives easier. Working for my mom has definitely been a challenge. But it's shown me how to deal with someone who isn't very appreciative of anything. I tried to help my sister learn, at every turn my mom has undone what I've done and tried to show me she knows better, well now she can find someone who can get burned our smacking their heads on a brick wall. My head finally hurts from it and I'm done with it. Hope everybody has a good day!

    Sometimes the things you think should be saddening are to be celebrated. Don't be sorry, you are much better for it.

    Finding your niche is the clearly one of the many keys to happiness. It can be so gratifying to walk away from something that isn't serving you anymore! emoticon

chocolate apple pie smoothie

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Here is a recipe I love to make

1 apple peeled and chopped
1 banana broken into pieces
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking cocoa
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (your favorite kind)
1 cup of milk, or as much to make it a little thin...your desired amount of thickness

Blend all together and enjoy!

My boys love this recipe as well. It seems to go over well with a teething almost three yr old.

Seems like everything is getting to me lately and I've become overwhelmed with life. I've had too many things going on at once, I'm not sure where to put .my attention first. I've been called a piece of trash by someone I once considered a good friend, which hurt but I'm no longer friends with them after about 20 years. Its really sad that hurting people need to hurt others to make themselves feel worth while. I feel many days as though I'm running around so fast I run past myself many times in the course of a day. I've tried to be everything for everyone and have lost myself in the process. My littlest and my puppy don't even give me time to use the bathroom alone. They always have to follow me in or if I manage to get in before they do, they're both outside the door knocking and scratching for all they're worth. I don't know what to do some days. Then there's the mother. Dear as she is, always has to call me when there's a problem. Don't get me wrong I don't mind but when my brother and his wife are living with her why does she call me? That's been unable to be off .my plate lately. Seems every day for the last two weeks I've had to get her out of a jam of some sort. I'm never alone in bed either. Many of you are thinking tour married you shouldn't be alone in bed. Well when your husband works 6 nights a week you are...not!! My littlest maybe only once a month will sleep on his own and I don't end up waking up with either his feet or head in the middle of my back causing me to wake up lame. Then there's my unclean house. I spend too much time cleaning someone else's house to care about my own. Yes I realize I'm not superwoman, but geepers when a load of laundry gets run four times without going in the dryer you've gotta do something about it. Thats the funny side odof it. So how does one deal with so many calamities at once? I don't have a clue. I've taken things way too personal and have let it all get to me. There's no time to carve out for me in my schedule and seems like mo matter what time I'm up in the morning I still can't get everything done I want to because I am so far behind. Any advice? Thanks for listening to a weiny!!

    With so many little ones, it is hard to carve any time for anything else. Maybe you can make arrangements with hubby to give you 30 min a day for whatever you want and is it possible to limit mom calls to a certain time period? I don't feel like I'm being very helpful but I do know where you are at

Last month was very difficult on me. I know not many of you will ever know how difficult, but I am grateful it could've been a lot worse. I've learned a lot, not lost more then two lbs. I'm very disappointed about it. But I've only been off my birth control pills a month. Hoping it would've worked quicker then it has but oh well such is life. Anyway, I'm hoping for better results for October. I know I haven't been very helpful to anyone and for that I am sorry. Someday I don't have time to even blink let alone sit and be online. Many days keep running into the next ones making life difficult. My goals for this month seem so meaningless because I can't predict the future by any means. I'm hoping to accomplish looking a little bit more, not going to specify any numbers and setting myself up with failure. I'm hoping to sleep more then two full nights, hoping to get through one month without sickness which is impossible, and I'm also going to take a step and try a different church. My spiritual life needs just as much work as the rest of me. I've neglected it so terribly and needed it so desperately it's not even funny. I'm going to try and feel less alone, fill my voids with my kids and spend more time with them then on myself. I don't feel these are unreasonable goals. U may never get there and I might...only time will tell. Wishing you all luck for the coming month!!
