Any news on the house?

It's been a while for me too. Back to school was totally crazy. I don't remember much of August. Then we lost power Monday through Thursday evening. A whole week home from school... emoticon some days I was going nuts...other days I enjoyed the time at home. Oh the value of a hot shower though! emoticon

Hi!
Been a while, I will check in when I can, but we have a lot going on! I have a lot of medical complications going on right now, but we are working hard to get them better.

We just put in an offer on a house that we just love, it will mean downsizing, but totally worth it, I LOVE it. We get the news today, supposedly, and I'm so excited and praying for good news!

Hope you all are doing well!!

Was half way through cleaning out a kitchen cabinet...because there were moths flying around and had to find which box was TOO old and needed to be tossed.

work called "please work on your day off" and because Melissa would be the only nurse for 4 hours, I did go work 4 hours.

But, at least got something done!

Checking in and saying emoticon

It's been busy around here getting ready for school, but now that it's started I have some time to get on the computer during the day. We went to CA for a week last month - beautiful! My BIL and his family invited us and we stayed with them. They live in Buellton, near Santa Barbara. We did a few beaches, visited some wineries, got family photos taken by the water. What a wonderful time.

Now it's back to the daily grind. Hubby has a job interview in NC on Sept 11. We'll see how that goes. Praying hard. We have been very blessed with his current job, but there are getting to be too many negatives. And we feel drawn to move to NC. It's been on our hearts for a few years now. Praying for open doors and God's timing.

This weekend we are going to try wrapping up some home projects - putting in the hardwood floor in our master bedroom is the first one. We have had the wood flooring sitting in our family room for over 6 months. We still have some kitchen work to finish up and to build some railings on our front porch. All things that need done, especially if we need to sell.

I hope you all are doing well. Drop a quick note and let us know!

Joyce- How'd the surgery go? Praying everything is alright!

I got the A1C results back!! I'm over the moon! Three months ago, it was 6.9 - which is in the diabetic range. The doc told me he wanted to see me in three months to retest and if it was above 6,5 he'd have to diagnose me with diabetes. I've worked so hard to follow the diet he gave me. Its at 5.6 now, which is in the NORMAL range! So happy.....

Kids and hubby are at the inlaws for the rest of the week. Time to do some deep cleaning. The silence is already strange. :-) Having friends over tomorrow. I'm going to break the diet for a night and have tacos, followed by ice cream, but just a little bit, and just for one night. I'm so encouraged by my A1C that I want to keep going on my diet.

Yes, it helps to see results. A1c, cholesterol #, scale #....pant sizes... feeling stronger in the legs, improved balance "I can stand on one foot for over a minute"

But since I only have one body, I will keep on regardless. emoticon emoticon

My job has me all kinds of stressed out today. If I didn't have very specific guidelines about what I can/can't eat for now (by my doctor), I'd have binged on all sorts of stuff. Really craving a milkshake. But, I'm going to make it through this. My anxiety and depression are through the roof right now, but I'm just going to keep breathing.

On the plus side, I get my A1C results Friday. I've worked so hard. I'm really hoping for good news.

My computer (email) tells me it is time to donate blood again. "It is easy to save a life, it just takes an hour...blah blah"
emoticon the Donor center is 52 miles away and I have to drive all the way through Springfield MO with lots of stop lights. So that makes it at least 3 hours.

I have to find a time in my schedule when I can feel energetic enough to do a 3 hour thing
OK....I'll worry about it next week emoticon

Everything I had found on youtube had been too much for me, till I found therapeutic yoga, it is slow, lots of breathing, not hard to keep up with at all. Hope you have a great time!

I agree, I've had some awful of both and now I have a great therapist and what seems to be a good psychiatrist.

I'm seeing my psychiatrist 2x a week for now. I've just got so much going on and am so overwhelmed and have so much to talk to her about I feel like it's either go long-term inpatient or this. I'm going to talk to her about the long term inpatient. It might be something to look into if I continue being in this state and don't get any better.

I did try therapeutic yoga this morning, I'm ready for a nap now. I had a hard time catching my breath, but it was very calming. I highly recommend looking on youtube and finding one you like.

A good psychiatrist and a good counselor make a ton of difference.

I just met my daughter's new psychiatrist today. She's down to earth and honest and explains things. It'll be good to have the help.

Good luck tomorrow!

I didn't have to go to the hospital, but it is still an option on the table as I'm still not doing good. I've started having panic attacks and PTSD flashbacks more frequently, and once while driving, so DH is driving me everywhere, which is hard on him as I had a lot planned this week! He's so sweet thought!

I am reading "The Complex PTSD Workbook" with my therapist... I knew I had some pretty awful therapists in the past, but I have never been taught mindfulness, grounding, containment, all that stuff. I think my therapist now thought I knew all that because I've been in therapy so long. So I'm going to ask her to work on the basics, help me with these fundamentals that I don't know how to do that seem to help people so much.

Thank you for helping too. I'd have never thought of those exercises because I've never been taught how to do them.

I saw my new psychiatrist, I really like him, he was open and honest and seemed to care about me personally. He agreed I was way too medicated and made a few changes, he said normally we would not make this many changes at once but I was on so many things that were sedating and they were having the opposite effect, he wanted to get me off some of them right away.. I think I'm gonna like this guy.

Hope you guys are doing okay, I see my therapist tomorrow and boy do we have a lot to talk about!!

I'd really suggest looking into some "mindfulness" excercises. They always relax me - often I fall asleep. Here is the one my therapist taught me.

breathe normally and just focus on how you feel breathing. If any thought comes, just let it float away. Just think about how it feels to breathe. Don't even imagine anything. Don't try to breathe a special way.

It only takes a few minutes of that to completely relax me. Its easier if its led by a therapist though until you get good at it. Maybe your therapist can work it into some sessions?

Another thing I find helpful is a weighted blanket. Doesn't work for everyone, but it takes down some of the anxiousness.

I hope they find you some relief and help.

Do they teach you deep breathing when anxious? try saying/thinking a mantra such as
"Jesus loves me" while breathing in
"My God is the great healer" while breathing out
and gradually slow the breaths extending the thoughts......this would turn your focus to God rather than the anxiety trigger present

Just a thought as I do not have anxiety attacks and can not truly understand

Hope you enjoy the celebration!!

I'm having a hard time with depression and PTSD and anxiety, prayers would be appreciated. I don't know if I posted it on this team so I thought I would, I'm finally getting a service dog! I'm going to train her myself with the help of a trainer, It will take anywhere from 15 months to 2 years to get her trained, but that is how long I'd have to wait for one and this way the bond will be closer and I will know how to upkeep her training and when she is having problems. It's going to be hard but I think it will be worth it.

I may have to go in the hospital if I don't improve. I'm going to talk to my therapist about longer-term care, like a three week program that can teach me the basics, like grounding and containment that I was never taught, if there is such a program out there. If not, going to see her twice a week while I'm in crisis mode, once the kids are in school. I don't know, I just want to do whatever it takes to get better.

Got my week-end traded so I can attend the "50th" Celebration of my Aunt...I stood up in her wedding so it was important to me.
However, had to take an extra day from the gal who traded....so off to work I go!

Hi everyone!

Been awhile since I dropped in. Lots going on in my life: Working full time, going to school, and raising 2 pre-teens. In addition, my life has been filled with DRAMA. But, the doctor gave me a wake up call. My A1C was in the diabetic range. He's given me three months to turn it around and put me on the South Beach diet. Its really helped a lot. I've lost about 15 pounds in two months. My husband has lost 35. Its expensive and we can't afford to completely follow it, but we're trying. My husband's cholesterol and A1C dropped into normal ranges. My appointment is next month and I'm really hoping not to be diagnosed with diabetes.

Trying to be more active on Spark as I think it will help. Hope you all are well.

Jenn

So much going on!! I can't get all of it on here otherwise it would be a super long post. The gist of it:

I'm on a new supplement that oh my gosh works wonders. PM me for more information! I told DH point blank, we can cut whatever you like out of the budget but your not messing with my diet (I'm diabetic) or my supplement! Because

I need the energy to move! We have 90 days to get out. And 7 years of accumulation of clutter to get rid of!! I told my youngest DD this and she got rid of 2 bags of garbage and 3 bags of donate stuff (with my help of course). Oldest DD keeps EVERYTHING so she is going to be the hard one.

That is the main stuff that is going on, any tips for moving would be appreciated! Hope you all are doing well! *hugs*

Hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!

I'm up at 2:30 AM again... well, I got up at 12 and then 2:30 and now it is 3.... My sleep schedule is so messed up. I want to nap, and I try because I'm so tired, but I can't because I'm too wired. Weird.

Lisa, When are your kiddos home every day?? School in my rural town is already out. Springfield (big town nearby) still has 10 days.
Are you scheduled fully for the summer?

My sister is driving me in to Hubby's car..then she will go home. I will drive hubby's car to work and then home tonight. I had to take him to a follow up medical appointment at 8:15 this morning and thought he could drive his car home....No way! Not ready to drive yet.

Prayers all around! I hope you both can rest in His comfort.

I've been in a rapid cycling phase - one minute I'm on top of the world (and too much shopping and eating!) the next I'm upset with myself for too much shopping and eating and feeling down. I'm struggling with resting in God's peace. He is so generous and loving and I am such a lousy steward. I need to get my act together and live for Him. He is faithful to offer mercy and I will cling to that today.

I did NOT enjoy yesterday...had barely gotten started at work when received a phone call from Hubby and he was obviously in distress. I dropped everything and ran to my car. He had driven himself into Spfd and then had a low blood sugar with seizure....while parked in a store parking lot. (not driving, thank goodness)

Eventually got home and.... realized that extreme adrenaline rush had triggered a migraine...
So did not return to work....Not good.

Don't know if this thread is still active...

It's 0100 and I've been awake for over an hour. Granted I went to bed at 8 I was so tired I just could not stay up. My sleep has been messed up since February (had a hospital stay in a mental health facility). I've had trouble with sleep off and on for 10 years now, but nothing like this... I just pray I can get some more sleep tonight. Oh, and I can't nap. I could there for a week or so, but now I'm back to not being able to nap. I average 2-4 hours of sleep a night.

Normally I can tell if I am going to be able to sleep or not and yesterday I really felt like I was going to be able to for a nap, but nope. I got really comfy and close to sleep, but could not actually sleep. Bummer. I've tried all manner of things. Melatonin (still taking), warm baths, hot tea, bananas, potassium, all kinds of stuff, nothing helps. Well, I can't say that, I think all of that has helped because it was 1-2 hours of sleep a night and now it is 2-4 hours.

How are things going for you all?

~ Karri
But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. ~Psalms 59-16

Have a funeral tomorrow before work....Tues drove to Sedalia to see Dad and helped him do the electronic "Guest Book" for his brother's wife.

Dad is now the last of his generation...he was 9th of 10 children.

Sorry Team...It has just been a busy week for me with little computer time

Wow! It's been awhile since anyone posted here. So much is going on, I'd love to hear how your month has been so far. Stop in and drop a note, let's get this team active!

How are your healthy living plans going? I'm making progress with a 40 day sugar fast I am doing with some ladies at church. We are studying the book "Full: Food, Jesus and the Battle for Satisfaction" by Asheritah CiuCiu. I am so blessed that she is actually a member of our church and is leading the Bible study of her book. So far, it's about food fixation being a spiritual battle that Satan uses to distract us from God. Very good read!!! Can't wait to dig deeper.

You always have such great ideas. I'm looking forward to seeing what's in store!

Busy, busy here too. With all the holiday prep and everything of course. Last night, Hubby decided to buy a new outside antennae and Amazon Fire TV to go with the new tv he got for our renovated family room. Well, a majority of today was spent holding the ladder while he was up and down trying to get signal. We had an antennae for just upstairs that was in the window. The new one works on both TV's. Luckily it was in the mid 30's and no snow or rain, but it was still mighty cold. We cut the cable cord just over a year and half ago. We use Sling TV through the xbox, Netflix and Hulu. Now downstairs we have the Fire TV box which also has Sling TV and many other options. I'm just glad it's finally done. The sectional sofa is back in the room. Hubby still needs to put all his tools away that are loaded up on the hearth (now that there is room in garage since the sofa is out). We have a whole wall that is brick with a raised hearth that spans the length of the wall. We mounted the tv above the fireplace. It's coming along nicely. And since we aren't moving to IN or NC any time soon, we get to enjoy it for a bit. emoticon

God has given us such peace about not moving. He has a plan for us right here. We just need to be open to His leading.

Enough rambling from me! emoticon How are you all doing? Do you have all your Christmas prep done? I still need to wrap a few presents, but I'll do that tonight after the kids are occupied after dinner. We don't put out the gifts until Christmas Eve night, so they're piled up in my room in bins ready to wrap.

I hope you all have a beautiful Christmas celebration filled with love and laughter, peace and joy. Merry Christmas!!!

The day is winding down, the kids are playing Wii together, dishes are done, leftovers packed away, full bellies all around.

I just want to say a quick "Thank You" to you Ladies for all your support and encouragement you shower on each other (and me too!) I am so humbled by your love for the Lord and how your light shines so brightly here and I'm sure in your world as well.

Always remember that you are dearly loved by your Creator, a Daughter of the Most High King. May He reach down and meet you right where you are, right where you need Him. He loves you with an everlasting love, a love full of grace and mercy. We are so very blessed to have that peace knowing He is for us.

Take care my sweet sisters-in-Christ. I am so grateful for you!

Home from that long day. Had a good conversation encouraging them (age 92 & 94) to look at the "Full Code" status. Successful CPR is unlikely at that age...so save the trauma.

Wow! Aug 5! I thought Aug 24 was early and that's when our kids go back.

I do have to say that your list of positives encouraged me to see the good things of summer and not dwell on the things left undone. And it gives me hope that these last few weeks can be filled with love and laughter. I might even get a thing or two done around here. emoticon

Yep, I start Monday and kids start next Friday, August 5. When I first started teaching I had a mug that said, "3 reasons to teach: June, July, and August". But it's not that way anymore. We basically just get June and July.

It's really hard for me this last week as I always beat myself up for all the projects I didn't get done and all the fun things I didn't do with my kids.

I am choosing today to focus on the positives:
emoticon I am blessed to have a pool and lots of days spent there with my kids.
emoticon While I didn't get all the cleaning/organizing done that I wanted to, I did get my son's large bedroom painted, my older son's little apartment painted, and most of 24 years worth of teaching stuff given away or sold.
emoticon I was able to spend a lot of the summer in the Bible doing daily devotions and several really good studies.
emoticon While I didn't lose the 20 pounds I wanted to, I have consistently gotten in an hour most days on the treadmill, plus Wii yoga, and swimming. Though I am only 3 pounds down from start of summer, I have clothes that fit better and I can see areas being defined.
emoticon While things aren't perfect and I know they never will be, DH and I are still together and working on our marriage.

WOW! That's a lot of positives! emoticon

As soon as I sit down in front of the computer my productivity drops emoticon . I get so easily distracted I end up wasting a lot of time and not getting much done at all. That's why I try to just get online late at night, but I go back to work next week so that won't work. How do we find a balance?

Thank you! We had a great date - we toured some model homes (dreaming big!) and had dinner at a favorite place.

My MIL's surgery went very well. thanks for the prayers! We'll know more after the test results are in, if she needs radiation or any follow up.

Hubby had some sticker shock when I showed him the estimate from the vet. We are getting a second opinion from our old, old vet that took care of our old dog and cats before we moved to the town we are in now. I take her this Friday for that appointment.

I hope things are going well for all of you! Lifting up prayers for each one of you! May God bless you with sunshine and Son-shine! and a little rain to make rainbows!

Good morning!

Great job on the steps Joyce!

It has been a whirlwind summer so far. Lots of kids' activities and taking care of my MIL. Her lumpectomy is scheduled for tomorrow. (prayers please!) We've been busy taking care of some household things for her - getting her computer fixed, cleaning, stuff like that.

We singed up for Kids Bowl Free this summer so we have been taking advantage of that too. The golf tournament was early this year since golf will be in the Olympics for the first time this year. Most of the golfers in the tournament will be in them so the PGA reorganized the whole season's schedule. It was a crazy busy few weeks, but things are slowing down a bit. Hubby is at least home for dinner this week. Now to finish working on the house!

Our 23rd wedding anniversary is this coming Sunday so we are going to try to have a date doing something we did pre-kids. We used to go to Parade of Homes all the time, I might see if I can find one. Hubby suggested the Medieval Faire. We'll have to see. We are also looking into a short camping trip this summer.

I took our black lab to the vet yesterday for her check up and brought a small lump on her foot to their attention. They are going to do surgery to remove it as soon as we schedule it. It's in a very difficult spot as it is right on top of her toes so there isn't much skin to repair it. Praying it goes smoothly and recovery will be good. she'll have to be restricted from running and jumping and she'll have a cone. Poor thing!

Anyway, how is YOUR summer going?
