Physicians Assistant......

Wednesday, September 11, 2013



I read this and found it to be like the old saying, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." So I say be the best physicians assistant that you can be for your temple/body that you can. I believe God is my physician & everything that I need in life. So by pass some of the treats try to walk a little every day & when you can make it a 30mins cardio fest.

Invest in yourself who knows how many more days we add to our lives? In case, we are prematurely taken in the primes of our lives at least we know in our hearts of hearts that we gave it the good ole girl/boy try. Laugh a little it helps....

Today, I am going to do (2) 10min video workouts on my breaks. I did walk for 20mins already & see if my grandson will allow granny to get up on that old dreadmill. I did have a banana, an instant cheese toast, some cranraisins & some almond slivers will be later with my baked chicken & broccoli. Going to enjoy the journey cause I've had all the treats! LMBO

God bless & be encouraged!!

Dee

    Good for you, Dee! I hope your grandbaby cooperates! Let's do serve God & ourselves as physicians' assistants.

I'm having company for dinner tonight, but right now I'm off to do my cardio/strength routine--it always makes me sweat copiously--& shower & then get the burgers ready to put on the grill. Feeling pretty good because to celebrate my cousin's birthday (the occasion of our dinner) I made a berry-banana sorbet using a Sparkrecipe; it's really low in calories & will taste SO good on this kinda steamy day.

O Happy Day....

Tuesday, September 03, 2013

Good Day Sparkfam!

It's a gorgeous day here in Chicago, my perfect nap day but I ain't got "no" time for that...lol It's been such a busy few weeks that the summer got away before we had a chance to do vacation. Oh well, we will have to try to piece our schedules together to make something happen. Since both my sons the older one junior in College & the younger a junior in high school. My daughter is working major over time so hopefully we will be able to break free for at least a weekend to just relax & enjoy time away from the city. We usually get away from to the country but we have been pretty busy....

Update, oldest son is doing so much better he has a nasty scar on his arm from the surgery but he actually got hired at Walgreens in his college town. WOOHOO!! Momma need a new pair of shoes & can she borrow a coupla dollars. No but at least my years of funding him all the way are hopefully coming to an end. No such luck....ugh!

So I got my grandson later tonight and his dad will pick him up from daycare tomorrow. He is getting so big and so happy but he is very particular of whom should be holding him....lol His dad & even me & his mom included. I call him Jump Jump Baby cause he like to jump & he also jump from arm to arm. He is so blessed to be the only baby around for all us none child bearing people that we do exactly that.....lol

Tonight I hope to engage him in some jumping around & get 30mins of walking or kickboxing.... Momma need to get back into her zone which normally works better for me during the fall/winter months. How are you guys doing? I pray all is well for you all as you have kept up with me. I am so blessed to have you all be part of my life....

God bless & enjoy EVERYDAY!!

Dee

    Yeah, I see why you've had NO time to meet up with me this summer & are even finding it hard to get in your usual hours of exercise! Those grandbabies are only little for a short time, & we've gotta take all the time with them we can get . . . even if sometimes they don't really want our attention, heehee! I had a fantastic time with my little Bea this past weekend, so I'm floating on air even though today it was back to the grind.

So glad to hear the surgery has been successful & your son is able to work again. Praise God! Now I hope you all can find a good weekend to get away & rest & laugh a lot!

To Eating Better

Sunday, August 11, 2013

Good Sunday Sparkfam! Its a beautiful day here in Chicago 80s today & we just got a nice misting. I know in the south you can fry an egg but cooler temps are on the way believe that. So I'm trying to add some healthier foods & snacks since I've been a picky eater since I can remember. So hubs likes the wonderful salad creations so I tried my first almonds on purpose. They also had cranraisins in it too. Its like eating slithers of cardboard with canraisins. So broccoli check almonds check but NO to asparagus & cauliflour but I'm still young & if I can conquer a handfuls of almonds I have got to get ready for me some asparagus. Yuk!

In other news, my son's arm requires minor surgery to place a pin in his elbow. The surgery is set for Tuesday & I welcome your prayers & warm thoughts. He wants to still start his junior year of college. So of course I'm the bad guy cause I want him to heal properly. Thank goodness for insurance but I'm still out of pocket $1000 which they want day of surgery......ugh! Will call them tomorrow to see if they can cut that in half I pray so or son will sit this semester out or live in his car.....lbvs

Trying to get in 30minutes of cardio tonight need to do my hair and get my back rubbed too. Good night Angels, sweet dreams & thank you all for listening to me blather on & on......


God bless & embrace everyday!

    emoticon Hello Dee!
I hope everything went well on the surgery. Rapid Healing in Jesus' Name. God's Power don't cost a thang! In this world's system they want money NOW and don't care if you have it or not. That's one reason I do not like to go t a doctor. But I'm not even gong there. Your new adventure with food sounds exciting. I tried Asparagus for the first time a few years ago and decided I like it. It took trial and error to get it just right. Almond butter is what I prefer instead of the almonds themselves. Especially the raw ones. I eat cashews, peanuts, walnuts and sunflower kernels more often then almonds. You'll find something that makes your taste buds happy and body healthier. I'm praying for you all. Thank you for Sparking by! Just love my baby girl even though she's 26. Hard to let them both grow up. My son is 23 and we live together and WOW lol. Mama don't wanna let go. Plus he looks like he's still in HS. Where did those genes come from?
Love you sis and God's Many Blessings Upon You and Yours!

Dislocated.....ugh!

Sunday, August 04, 2013



This picture is disturbing but this is what happened to my son yesterday. He walked out and said he was going to play ball, I started to tell him don't go but they all think I watch too much news and that I am a hoover mother. For those of you who don't know what that is, that is a mom who doesn't let go of her kids. I just want them to be aware of how fragile the human body is and that they have sometimes chill at home and be bored sometimes. I mean, we used to happy playing rock teacher, red light, green light or red rover, red rover now if they are sitting still they are bored.

The story unfolded by our son running on porch with such urgency and bursting into the house & tripping over himself. With such a dramatic entrance, I thought someone hurt him for his iphone or shot him or something. He yelled I broke my arm, he was in so much pain and i wasn't there with him, his dad rushed out the house taking charge & he is not good in these situations. He walked out bbq sauce on his clothes, a tank top, no wallet, no phone, no insurance card. I had to run it out to him. Normally I am the one who goes with the kids to the hospital cause I am the leveled headed one. Well after they heavily sedated him, the pulled his arm and elbow slide back into the socket. It was such a painful for him waiting but they got him some serious anesthesia and he was out. He was incoherent almost. The orderly who helped him out to my car was a joke! He let him get out of the wheel chair on his own. I mean, if he had feel I would've sued him personally! Anyway, he was sent home with some more dramatic drugs & slept most of the night. I stayed home from church with him to wait on him so more. He finally got up too a shower and went to his girlfriends so she could drive him to Champagne. I told him no but he wasn't listening to me. This is my oldest son who is 20years. Is it illegal to sit on your kids to make them take a say to try to heal? lol I am just too through, so he is going to pay the $250 emergency room visit and the $300 orthopedic specialist fee as well. Am I wrong for that? What about my pain and suffering and worry....

Didn't get much of a workout except cleaning and washing cause Hubs goes out tomorrow....

God bless & thanks for letting my whine like a little baby!!!

    sweetie I am sorry! I hope he heals up. Kids at a certain age can not be told nothing. They know it all already. LOL! We as parents want to hold them so they do not get stump toe and get hurt. When he pays the high bill maybe he will think next time...hopefully. emoticon

CIERAPOET 8/6/2013 12:11PM

    Well Dee I probably would have reacted the same way. They don't want to listen. My son is 23 and he got "sick" earlier this summer and he NEVER gets sick but he kept doing his normal hanging out stuff. He just had a very bad case of eczema with a bit of MALNUTRITION. I almost cried. But that was NOT my fault.

emoticon Remember when you were their age? We were GROWN. Couldn't tell us nothing. We had to pray plead The Blood of Jesus and LET God take care of them. We've done our part.

On a lighter side Yes it's fine for him to pay those charges but JESUS PAID IT ALL. He's our Shepherd and we have EVERYTHING we need. We have to TRUST Him that He's Speaking to our children as well.

I've learned STAY CALM! It's OK!
Love you sis!

I think most parents nowadays do & pay too much for their kids. It's good for our young adult kids to have responsibility for their own expenses, as much as possible. You're not a bad mom for requiring it! Quite the contrary.

Happy Monday!!!

Monday, July 15, 2013

Good Monday Sparkfam! It has been a minute but I am always trying to make sure I hit you guys with a goody or comment on your page or blogs. I have been so busy with my little pooda scooda freshin fruita (grandbaby slang). lol He is such a joy and his little puppy brodder is such a big boy & tries to help whenever he can......I took a staycation to help my daughter & SIL with the babies while their daycare provider closed 2weeks. I just couldn't let little Camden stay with someone else who might let him cry too much. I mean a good 2-5 minutes isn't bad but anything beyond that is way too long. I shed a tear.....

Well a few months back I hinted that I would be starting a business with my hubster?? Well I am glad to say that Trinity 3 Trucking is up & almost about to be running. We bought a tractor but will run with JB Hunt with our own authority (means more money) and once we get our trailer we will get even more money. I am overjoyed but I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch. Starting a business can be extremely difficult and the time it takes from your life can be immense. I have prayed on this almost everyday but trying not to be selfish. I want to wise in decision making when it comes to our business & finance.

On another my youngest son is giving us the blues.... I have prayed on this & on him & ask for your prayers for us as well. As the devil is busy but I refuse to give on him but I can't lock him in the basement? Well I could but he is 16years old & I'm trying to help him think more for himself. This is some times difficult as we know kids know it all & the peer pressure. I mean, he is a well mannered kid but he is sneaking out of the house which as you know can very dangerous. I am NEVER giving up on my kids! I am thinking of sending him to a military school as per his request. He thinks he is in jail now he has no idea....I will keep you posted.

I went to my yearly pap exam and I lsot 10lbs. I was wondering if it was just water? I will take it nonetheless. lol Thank you for reading & take care.

God bless & keep you all!!!

Dee

    I am keeping good thoughts for your son. I used to be a juvenile hall public defender, and frustrated parents would talk to me. I told them -- and truly believe -- that the issues would pass. The kid would grow out of the problems. And, generally, I was right.

    I said a prayer for your son. I have had some problems with my 35 year old son that are far greater. He has been to jail for real. He wears an ankle monitor for using his ex fiance's password and posting derogatory stuff of her Facebook page. That is Felony 3 in the state of Texas. My advise is to take control now while your son is 16.
Congratulations and I hope you all do VERY well on your new business!!!! emoticon

    Hey my friend, it is FANTASTIC to hear about your new business! Especially because it won't be taking you away from Chicago--right? I can imagine there is lots of stuff to stay on top of. Best wishes with it all, & may you soon get the trailer, & may there be no nasty accidents! emoticon

So glad you got the extra time with your grandkids. They grow up so quickly! And woohoooo on losing 10 lbs, yay!

And you have all my sympathy as you struggle to help your son survive & thrive. I think age 16 is especially hard for boys. My son wasn't a bad kid either, but he was pretty unhappy at that age. May God protect your boy, especially as he is out & about--the Zimmerman verdict Saturday night was BAD, in my opinion, & I am praying extra-hard for our beautiful black boys. Big emoticon to all of you, & prayers alongside yours.

Congratulations on your & your hubby's business!!! That's SO exciting. It definitely takes dedication, patience, and persistence to run your own business & I am praying for your success and that you will be guided to make the wisest decisions for you guys! YAY!!!

Teenagers are always a tough situation, lol. I have a little sister who is now 18 & is about as stubborn as I was as a teen (not a good thing, lol). Of course they know everything, they know better than you, and everything you do in an attempt to keep them out of trouble is really just an attempt to make them the most unhappy they could be just for your own entertainment. *le sigh* I don't know how your son is with communication, but my sis, anytime anyone would try to tell her something for her own good she would just shut down & not even listen or respond.
What I found worked best was to start a discussion, not giving advice, but talking out different scenarios, asking what she thought about them, what her reaction would be, what could go wrong, what were better/alternative courses of action would be, etc. It was better if she came to the conclusion to take an alternative course of action rather than be told that she had to. It's different with everyone though, but eventually they grow up and realize that their parents are smarter than they gave them credit for being and probably weren't just trying to make them suffer. I'll be praying for an amiable outcome for your family in that situation as well.
