About me, part 2

Good evening, I’m back. To continue my about me, in my first about me post,I touched on my health issues and some other issues I’ve been dealing with lately. As far as our banking dilemmas, I think we’re on track now, on the gut/digestive dilemmas, I saw my Gastro Dr yesterday, initially, my blood pressure was taken and told to me:150/100. Now, if I was pregnant and had toxemia in pregnancy like I did many years ago, that would be understandable, however, I had walked earlier that morning after dropping off my children to school, went home to have a small breakfast and clean up and I thought, I was fairly relaxed, outside of the fact that while getting my family ready for the day before dropping everybody off Friday morning, I had bashed my head pretty good on my freezer door and so I was hurting pretty bad. They never did retake my blood pressure, we all forgot to mention it. This morning, my daughter woke me up close to noon, wondering if I was gonna sleep all day. So today, I just hung out with the kiddos and read and binge watched different shows. Hopefully tomorrow, I’m a little better than I was today. 

I did my switchell and juice cleanse around noon, after getting up for the day, had a grilled cheese for brunch and a v8,a handful of nuts for snack when I wanted to munch, and a small dinner. I had popcorn for a snack tonight with my shows and, mental note to self, I won’t be having popcorn again. It has requested the fast track out. I’m hoping that they schedule my endoscopic ultrasound soon, so we can know what’s going on with my insides and hopefully a way to fix it and maybe regain part of my diet that I’ve lost so far. 

In the near future you’ll start seeing some of my writings, some of my craft endeavors and foods and recipes that I’ve tried and their failures and successes, and of course books and magazines that I’ve read and gained knowledge from. I’m gonna admit something to you all, I’m an information junkie. I love to know and learn stuff. Being I love to learn and know stuff,I also love to help others with my knowledge and help others by finding out stuff that others can’t, don’t want to bother with our aren’t sure how to go about finding.

I’m looking to become a freelance writer, a virtual assistant/personal assistant, proofreader, editor from home, while still being available for my family. If anybody can help me out, even if I’m hired to do jobs for free on a trial basis to gain me some experience/practice, I’m OK with that. I can be contacted here or by email at haskids2009@gmail.com. Have a great night everybody and prayers and blessings to all.

About me, part one

Good evening, I have returned. I haven’t gone far, but just haven’t posted in awhile. For a long time, I’ve contemplated what to do with this blog, I love to write, my passion is reading and writing, and of course helping people. So, I’ve decided, after in depth conversations with God, that I use what I have, and write what I know. 

For anybody who hasn’t read my blog before or read any of my posts, I’m a happily married wife of a truck driver, I’m a homemaker, momma to four beautiful children, home administrator and personal assistant. I have had a rough upbringing, and a rough young adulthood, my adulthood hasn’t been as rough, although it’s been how I’ve reacted to it and who I’ve had by my side to help me get through it. In the past three years or so, I’ve been having some pretty extensive gut and digestive issues, that, I’m still working on getting figured out and hopefully controlled. My issues started out with symptoms that mimicked gall bladder issues. That led to me calling my Dr., who did some testing, sent me off to a gastroenterologist, who, alongside a colleague, did some tests, to find out, I’ve got a fatty liver and chronic pancreatitis, IBS(irritable bowel syndrome),GERD,(Gastro esophageal reflux disease), but absolutely nothing wrong with my gall bladder. By that time, I was having my consult with a surgeon, who said, I had a 50/50 shot of having surgery and it helping or not. 

Back to the drawing board we went. I dealt with alot more pain, less and less in my diet on which I can eat and tolerate, a 50/50 shot of whether I’m gonna have to be close to a bathroom or not each time I eat. I’ve started a juice cleanse ritual each morning, a slightly different lunch and dinner routine, and still, haven’t gotten any closer to figuring out what’s wrong. I was in an auto accident almost nine years ago, which caused extensive neck and back issues. My neck issues, even a year and a half post surgery, haven’t done anything. I haven’t been brave enough to get my back issues on the track to getting figured out yet, because, I still have yet to go see the post concussion center for a concussion I endured on my own last may, while on the road with my trucker hubby. He thought he was gonna have to catch me from falling out of the truck, after whacking myself hard enough on the door jam of the truck to almost knock myself out. I’ve since bashed my head a number of times, including today. Now, for anyone who’s given themselves a concussion whether to knock themselves out enough or not knows, that once you’ve bashed your head, it’s worse each and every time afterwards. I bashed my head this morning on the corner of my freezer door, and I almost knocked myself out. I, moments later, started feeling pain radiating from my forehead down the sides of my head to my neck and shoulders. It affected my vision also. 

It apparently, affected my blood pressure also. My blood pressure is usually normal at 120/80, or close to it. Today, at my Gastro appt, it was 150/100, quite a bit higher, one, because I was fighting another concussion. I’m not a big fan of Drs, or lawyers, or any other high authority figures. I’ve been dealing with our bank in regards to our mortgage, and to have patience with people who, seems like all they seem like they’re doing is trying to piss you off, takes the sheer grace of God and his mercy.

A trucker’s wife’s life

It’s 10:30p.m. On a Wednesday night. We had church tonight, however, I didn’t want to brave the extreme cold, blowing snow and 14ยฐweather and somewhat slippery roads. I don’t do well driving in the snow, my last accident, almost nine years ago, was the last snowfall of March 2008. It was my son’s 4th birthday, and I wasn’t driving, however, I suffered some extensive neck and back injuries, that nobody can find or figure out. Because of those, I depend on pain pills and muscle relaxers, and my health has, in different ways, gone downhill.

I now deal with major gut issues, feminine and bladder issues, on top of my neck and back issues. I guess, if I were to look at it this way, that these neck and back issues have opened the doors for my other issues to be seen and slowly dealt with, that this is God’s plan for my life, and to not complain about them, I’d probably be better off. Because of all these issues though, God has blessed me with being a stay at home mom and wife, to be here with/for my kids and my husband, that I’m not meant to be a working mom. It sucks financially, because my hard working trucker hubby is our only income, but, he’s otherwise happy and content with me being at home rather than working. I’m available for him and his needed wake up calls, business dealings, the kids and everything that requires attention of one parent or another. I’ve been fighting God on this for quite awhile, in turn, I’ve probably been the disobedient child who doesn’t reap God’s rewards and blessings because I’ve been disobedient.

So, I’m trying to start being more obedient to God and relying fully on him for everything, including my finances. In the meantime however, I am going to start utilizing my loves, which, outside of my family, is reading and writing. I love to write and I want to start writing for profit. If anybody is willing to take a chance on a newbie writer for resumes, blog posts, articles, websites, I’d be willing to gain experience and do it for free for awhile. I’ve seen alot of sites and blogs that haven’t been kept up in awhile and I’d be willing to help bring them back to life.

OK, enough about me, for everybody who’s still gotta be on the roads here in Michigan, prayers and blessings to safe travels and have a great night folks.

 

It’s Saturday

Good morning everybody. This is what the view is in my neck of the woods, good ole west Michigan today. I don’t know about anybody else, but this chick won’t be going out today unless I absolutely have to. I don’t know what everybody else has going on today, but, like i stated last week, my hubby was on vacation this week, going back to work tomorrow and I will be doing more reading and writing this week.

Today in downtown Grand Rapids, there is the Santa parade, which you can catch on wood TV, or woodtv.com, out their mobile app. Or, if you’re feeling brave, you can go out and watch it. Me, I’m going to attempt to finish up a few things for some hopefully, potential work from home positions, get some stuff done around the house and later, play store with the hubby. 

Have a great day folks and stay safe for the ones braving the areas effected by snowfall.

Why worry?

Good afternoon everybody, it is officially halfway through the week, and I’m pretty much ready for Saturday to be here. Hubby has been on vacation since Sunday and I’m beyond enjoying having him home, even though we’ve both been doing exactly what my post today is titled, worry. 

Haven’t exactly figured out how to turn it so it’s easier to read, sorry folks. Anyhow, if you can read this, this was my devotion this morning, worry is no good!!  I tell ya, when I read that this morning, I immediately felt like my head was a great big dartboard. I don’t know if anybody else feels that way, but I sure do. 

So, today, I’m trying to be obedient to God and just let him do what only God does and that’s take everything and work it out for his plan and purpose.

I hope everybody has a great rest of their day today, I’m gonna pick kids up, head home, get ready for church and worship God some more. Later folks.

Work from home

Good evening folks. Hoping all has had a wonderful day no matter where they are at in life. I am looking for anybody has work from/at home, legitimate positions, that are somewhat flexible, and pay decently. I’ve been a stay at home mom for over seven years, not exactly sure where God is wanting me to go, but I’m looking for an extra income to help my household.

I look forward to any suggestions y’all can throw my way, remember, LEGITIMATE, legal, and definitely at home positions. Have a great night folks, hubby’s home this week, so I’ll be hangin with the hubby….๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Living in the presence of God

Good morning everyone, this is a wonderful day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. I’m feeling a little better than yesterday, as long as I keep God in my heart and my mind, Satan has no place to go. 

My Sunday message today is on the manifest prescence of God. When sin happens, we hide and let Satan take control, with knowing that God’s manifest prescence is in us, we can come out of hiding and kick Satan back into hell.

I pray that everyone has a wonderfully, blessed day.
