Time for me

Well, not sure where to begin. I am a busy stay at home mother with four crazy boys. Noah (6), Ezra(5), Bobby (3) and Moses (1). They keep me on my toes.
My husband and I met when I was just 18, married at 19. We have been together 10 years this summer. We are stationed in North Dakota and my husband is in the Air Force.
My husband deployed back in September 2013, and since then nothing has been the same. While he was gone, my stress level had reached an all time high. It was hard ...
Well, not sure where to begin. I am a busy stay at home mother with four crazy boys. Noah (6), Ezra(5), Bobby (3) and Moses (1). They keep me on my toes.
My husband and I met when I was just 18, married at 19. We have been together 10 years this summer. We are stationed in North Dakota and my husband is in the Air Force.
My husband deployed back in September 2013, and since then nothing has been the same. While he was gone, my stress level had reached an all time high. It was hard taking care of my sweet boys alone. The weather here in ND gets crazy (-40's) and I was stuck at home with my kids often. While he was gone, I lost none of the baby weight that I had planned on losing. Each pregnancy I am unable to workout due to history of preterm labor and early dilation.
In short, I have gained far more than "healthy amount" each pregnancy.
While my husband was deployed I had emergency surgery removal of my appendix. I honestly feel it was a combination of being overweight/obese and insanely stressed. My husband's deployment ended in February, and he came home!!! I felt life was finally going to be "normal" again.
Things never got "normal" again.
My baby boy began to pass out, turn blue and have seizures. The last one was the day after his birthday and lasted 13 minutes, even after emergency meds.
That situation has changed our lives, what we do as a family, and we are now trying to move to be closer to specialist ( hours away) and an Emergency hospital (closest one is 30 minutes away).
Anyway, now I feel myself back where I was. So stressed, so exhausted and having no time for me. Ever.
But, I need to figure this all out, my body weight it unhealthy and I need to be there for my boys, especially now.
Trying to find my healthy way back. We have already switched to organic food and less processed meals. Now I need to figure out how to help heal the inner me, and try to focus on me, when my mind is always on my kids.

In Sagittarius the Sun is idealistic and optimistic. Sagittarius is the sign that espouses such high principles as universal love and world peace. As this period of the year is associated with the spirit of giving and good cheer, the Sagittarius personality is recognized for its generosity and expansive demeanor. Sag loves to buy gifts for others. Sag is ruled by Jupiter which expands, so the Sag woman can be a big spender, but she works hard and can make a lot of money. Her health area is around her hips, so she can have nerve pain, joint or groin issues. She wanted to be like her Dad, so she loves being outside, and therefore she really isn't cut out to be a Stay-at-home-Mom. She is a hard worker, but she really doesn't love doing housework. She is a Tomboy at heart and a true athlete. She can have a weight issue, since she can overeat, but she really isn't cut out to be fat as she loves to stay active. She loves animals and can work at a job with animals. She can be a college Professor or a tour guide, as she loves to travel. She is very smart. She does have a blunt mouth, so don't ask her for an opinion unless you want to hear it "straight from the horse's mouth." She never keeps a grudge but tells you to your face what she thinks.
You are very gregarious, enthusiastic, and open, in all that you do. You have an ability to understand a broad perspective, and to see everything from a total point of view. Your foresight and an ability to visualize the big picture make matters work out well for you most of the time. Always thinking in broad abstract terms, you usually have trouble focusing on details that arise.
In many ways you are spontaneous, but with this comes an inclination to be bluntly honest and frank, or at least, straightforward and much to the point. You never intend to hurt anyone, but the truth is all important to you, and you never hesitate to tell it like it is. Tact and restraint can be issues of concern, but you probably don't care. You are so independent. You can rarely be pushed an inch in any direction unless you decide the direction your being pushed is where you want to go.
These blows are softened only by your warm, jovial and outgoing friendliness. Even when you stick your hoof in your mouth you can recover and show up as a winner. Often "lady luck" just smiles on you. Sagittarius has a happy-go-lucky, honest, cheerful, and ever optimistic approach to life; but then can turn right around and be so careless, restless and extravagant.
You have a natural love of the outdoors and may develop strong enthusiasm for sports and outdoor adventure. Sagittarius is the sign most often associated with sports, and you are inclined to physical activity and active endeavors, particularly outdoors.
Future-oriented, you rarely allow problems or setbacks to get you down for long. You put disappointment behind you and start working toward your next adventure. Never satisfied with moving along in slow lane, you want to set the pace on a grand scale. Whatever you set out to do, must be the biggest and best. You want to live life to its fullest. You can work well with anybody, accepting them for what they are. You are the natural, open-hearted extrovert, an easy person live and work with. Relying on your glibness and complete self-confidence, you are a natural in the world of selling. Still in the area of organization and perseverance you may need help from other factors in the chart. If you are like most Sagittarius natives, you can be down right irresponsible and unreliable at times. Your personality is such, however, that people don't get upset about it. It's that natural Sagittarius charm that carries you through the tough spots.
Sagittarius is the sign of higher education. You live to expand your horizons in every possible way, wanting to see the world and experience it. You want to meet interesting people and try everything. Your curiosity is boundless and your desire for knowledge is paramount.
