Chucks surgery and then some

Well it won't be long. Unfortnately, all good things must come to an end. WE were doing very well. I am going to have to take on extra jobs again. I refuse to let people take our house. Chuck will be off for 2 mos, and I am not really sure what is going to happen. I DO have a job, but it is slow. I will be starting private duty, but it is half of what I earn now...but it will at least be something. Plus I will have my visits. I am applying for other home health companies as well. I now realize that when I quit my other home health job it was rather hasty, but I do feel I made the right choice and for the right reasons. The decision was also supported by my husband, so I KNOW I made the right decision.

I started my internet newspaper today. Not sure how it is going to go. I am also going to start interviewing wahms, which will appear in this blog. I am very excited about the venture. It will be a good thing, we can all learn from each other. It is my hope that the blog and interviews will flourish with lessons for us all.

The girls: Very busy. They are going to be in the musical Annie get your gun this year. The directors have a lot of kids to deal with, and I applaud them. It's a lot of work, and not quite sure how they pull it off every year. We had some news though, and not sure what is to become of it. The literary guild, which we are members of, will not be associated with Bicentennial Park. Chuck and I are not sure what this means for us and our girls. I guess I'll find out more on Monday.

Summer fun: We went swimming at the Beaconridge pool on Saturday. I love to swim. It was my hope it would lower my blood sugar, but it didn't. We are planning to go this coming weekend. Then I will really swim and do laps with my sister. She welcomes the company, and we are happy to oblige! The girls would live in pools and water if they could. Tonight they are at a sleep over with friends.

My diabetes: It's my fault it is out of control. I ate too much fast food, not eating the right stuff, and now they are too high. I do plan to walk on the tread mill either tonight or early in the morn. I will have to call my doc to ask for Januvia and see if that helps bring my sugars down again. I am hoping my walks, and treadmill will bring them down.

Gyms: my advice is for another time. It was a frustrating weekend in talking with Cardinal gym this weekend, and I don't want my frustration to be heard just yet. Breath!

Driving to Mississipi: Another thing to think about. I won't air it on this blog.

Until next time

This summer has been unpredictably rainy and cool. Not very hot at all. So when I broke my promise to go to splash station today because I just didn't have time, I didn't expect cool weather! It won't get warm until Friday or Saturday. So needless to say my girls were upset. We did however go to the library, and I think with this cool weather, we'll be making more and more trips. This is a good thing, they both need help and need to read more. Becca loves her animal and science books. They are both in the reading clubs at the library, so I hope that inspires them to read.

On another note...if sparky doesn't start eating more, I think I may call the vet. He slept alot today. His one hind leg is scraped up, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. The girls are always carrying him too, which chuck and I don't like. It doesn't give him time to walk.
Off to see my patient. Until next time.

cleaning day, and the puppy

I can not brag enough about how good this puppy is. Last night when we got home from a graduation party my hubby took care of the puppy. He is paper trained pretty well. We let him roam around for a little bit, and then he took him out. Well no poop or pee for the first time, but he hadn't eaten. So then my hubby thought he'd wait. So after I went to see my patient, I guess he fell asleep, and the puppy went to sleep on the couch at his feet. Well, then the puppy got down from the couch and went wee wee on the paper and somehow got back on the couch...(good puppy) He does go poop and pee outside. I know those of you reading this is probably thinking tmi...but I've never really had a puppy. We had two dogs when I was younger with my brother and sister, but I never really had the opportunity to bond with them, in fact I think they hated me. So I am really excited, I think we made a really good choice. The only problem is the girls won't leave him alone for beans. They took him for a walk, (they asked dad)but abby and becca walked all the way to the gas station. That was too far of a walk for that little pup. Hubby of course was not too pleased, nor was I. I really don't want my 9 yr old walking that far, or thinking she can walk without permission, or even with permission. For now anyway.

As far as cleaning's like pulling teeth. I did sleep in, so now chuck is taking his nap. I will let him. He fixed breakfast and got up with the puppy and girls. He was up early. But the girls. So much laundry, I don't get how a family can gather up so much laundry. Anyway, I am energized, but I want to have my fun too, and I am going to do some work, then polish off my paperwork, and go into the office tomorrow. Becca really doesn't like cleaning so much or taking her dirty laundry down...grrrrrrrrrrrr.....Abby was cleaning her room. We shall see, if they do a good job I will take them to splash station if the weather is nice.

Until next time.

Gwyneth Paltrow: What's Wrong With Homosexuality? - Celebrity News -

Gwyneth Paltrow: What's Wrong With Homosexuality? - Celebrity News -

I was raised a very very strict Catholic. I think even stricter than anyone else in my family. When I was in about 4th or 5th grade, this girl Nancy Jo Kasko called me and my friend Lori homosexuals. While I wouldn't admit it to Nancy, I didn't know what she was talking about. So I asked my mother. My mother was very uncomfortable with the term, but I finally found out what Ms. Nancy was calling me. (I'll never know why every Nancy I have ever met has been a B**t**) but that's the way it goes. My parents weren't to forthcoming with the birds and bees with me...I made them very uncomfortable. I think secretly my mom was hoping I would become a nun. And I did think about it in my 20's, but soon found out, that I was probably not nun material. Although it's hard for me to believe all nuns...are oh so NUNLY.

In any event, any one with religous views has thought homosexuality was bad, so I'm a bit confused as to why this concept is foreign to ms. paltrow. Certainly she had religous friends in her younger years, if not so, perhaps in the present.

While the Catholic religion does shun homosexuality, we in my family do not. It isn't about growing with your religion either. It's about humanity, whether my religion feels it is wrong or not, you can never go wrong with a little humanity.

Until next time.

It's been a long time...but I have a few rants!

Rant rant rant.....

My number one rant is the rude people on the road today. I was out driving on the left lane...going faster than I should really, and I had this guy speed up behind me. He signaled and pointed for me to go into the middle lane. I was so mad! Yes I did. I flipped him off. I know I shouldn't have, but the nerve of this driver. He was going much faster than I, so eventually he passed me. I eventually moved to the middle lane. Then I got the honkers. I wasn't turning fast enough, or starting to go on the green light fast enough. The worst honkers are the trucks that are usually 8 cars behind. Now who do they think they are? How much of a gain do they think they will make by honking? I wonder.

My second rant is at this blogger who was on Carson Daly. I much rather follow @BrandyEllen or some other wahms then follow her. She makes dumb declarative and often insulting comments on her twitter. The only reason she has so many followers is because of a rocker who told everyone to follow her. There is nothing special about her blog, she even rants at the women on the view for commenting about her. I'm not sure why she qualified as a writer. The one comment she made on twitter that really irked me however was about children. If you are going to pick on children pick on your own. I was raised never to comment on peoples looks. If you point your finger at someone, there were three pointing back at you. I guess for tasteless twitter comments you get followers.

Why would any mom follow someone who states on twitter "one of the most popular rides @ disney are obese 10 yr olds being pushed in strollers.

Really has a lot of audacity, and who is she to judge. My job here isn't to disuade you in following @kellyoxford but if you're a mom...why would you?

until next time
