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?

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.

Please drop a note and tell us how you are doing! I'm can't wait to read all about it!

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?

My Fitbit showed 4.0 miles 10,000 steps all taken inside my hospital on the 4th... emoticon .which was a good thing. When I stepped out into the parking lot at 11pm I could hardly breath!

Between the humidity of 95% emoticon and the chemical residue of all the fireworks.. emoticon emoticon .there was BAD air pollution.

And I went from Garage Sale to out of state trip....
The Drive to Chicago land was beautiful with pleasant weather... emoticon
and OH are we getting things done! emoticon emoticon Amazing progress. Great start and still have 4 working days left.

Of course tomorrow it is supposed to rain. So, we will work indoors more...
Helping my sister get her house ready to sell so she can move to live near me. 35 years of life to clear away. It is a task. Hubby died 2 years ago and she is ready to move on.

Thanks for your prayers as we negotiate our relationship, as well as all the work and some of this is emotionally hard for her.

Joyce - I'll be lifting up prayers for peace and safety for you! Also, that you will meet your goals - in getting rid of stuff and making a little cash.

Tomorrow our city is having a community paper shredding day. I gathered all my papers (1 large bin!) to take in the morning. After that it's time to get ready for Catie's bday party at 1. Most of the house is cleaned up, I'm waiting to do the floors until tomorrow since it's rainy out and every time the dog comes in from outside there are little muddy prints everywhere. I'm praying for clear skies as well. We have some outdoor games that we want to do, otherwise it will be 'Just Dance' on the Wii and maybe doing nails or something. We'll have to see.

Any plans for the weekend?

Amen;

Consider checking with your health insurance to see if you can get some counseling on anger management or coping skills--- for the kids; or it might be called 'family counseling'
Since there was actual physical injury, this might be available.

My heart is full of compassion for your pain...perhaps something good can come of it.

Dear Father God - I lift up HANNAPRAYER and her children to You and pray that You will cover them all in Your peace. Please bring physical healing and restoration to their relationships. Lord, her mother's heart is hurting. Only you know the whole situation. Please hold them close and shine the light of Your love on them. It's in Jesus' precious and holy name I pray. Amen.

This week has been less stressful at work and I feel MUCH better.

I posted a status "Today Become more aware of the blessings that surround you." which my computer put in 10 times...
OK, Father in Heaven...are YOU adding this emphasis to be 10 times more aware of the blessings that surround me??? I believe YOU can use the computer glitches in Your Service!

Good morning Ladies!

I'm just checking in to say emoticon and see how things are going with you. It is soccer season so lots of running around and schedule changes going on here, plus the end of year school programs and things coming up in the next month.

Drop a quick note and tell how you have been doing lately!

We have a noon service on Good Friday that I am probably going to go to, as long as my MIL is taking the kids for the afternoon. Sunday we have 3 services - 7 am, 9am, and 10:40 am. We'll do the 9 am one since we head to hubby's cousin's house who lives about 40 minutes north.

Anyone else have plans for this weekend?

Thursday last supper
Friday reviewing the time on the cross
Saturday remembering the depth of depression in Jesus death
and THEN the resurrection

This year I am trying to fit some of that in while working the week-end emoticon

I think I put walk 10 minutes each day on my list of 3 things I wanted to do in March. I have actually done it everyday, even on the days when I didn't feel like it. It has made a big difference in how I feel.

Spring is a great time to get out and get moving. Let's do it!

Hello ladies!

I'm with you, Shirley. My weight is hanging steady pretty high right now. I know I'd feel better if I got up and moved more. It is Spring break here for the kids and the weather hasn't been the greatest so it's been a lot of indoor time. We did manage a family bike ride last night. Today is supposed to be pretty mild too, so we'll get outside in a bit.

I did join the Spring 5% challenge, so I'm hoping for some great results this time. I really need to buckle down, no more excuses. With the weather looking better I'm hoping to get out and walk the dog more, maybe ride my bike or go to the gym when the kids are back in school. Big ideas - I just need to follow through with action.

How are you doing?

Joyce, that's awesome! Getting schooling will change the whole course of those girls' lives. :-)

I'm doing well today. I got the results of my sleep study and found out that I stop breathing an average of 66 times per HOUR. They set me up with a CPAP machine and its changing my life. I'm so much more alert, and have more energy. I'm still a bit tired, but I think my body is healing from the lack of rest. My appetite is changing and the irresistible cravings for sugar have lessened. My goal now is to increase my water intake and the health of my diet.

How are you gals doing?

Its been a crazy week here, with my aunt coming to visit, two trips to Seattle Children's Hospital (2 hour drive each way), a sleep study for my daughter, a sleep study for me, and worry about my aunt who chose to go back to a bad situation despite being welcome here to stay longer.

The good news though, is that I will likely have a CPAP machine soon and hopefully get some energy back and my aunt's situation is temporary. Trying to de-stress and get back into my routine now for the new week ahead.

Also, good news, is my pre-diabetic 11 year old who has high blood pressure is FINALLY listening to the need for her not to sneak food and she lost two pounds. The staff at Children's Hospital was glad along with us.

Totally Exhausted.
Went in early because RN was by herself. 6discharges, admits and all the other normal stuff.
Then 2 hours later started getting text messages that my husband (who had driven 90 miles to participate in a Science Fiction Convention with son and friends) had a seizure caused by low blood sugar. When this happens in public and he bites his tongue and bleeds all over, they call an ambulance and take him to Emergency Department of Hospital.
I felt I had to stay with MY patients...son was with DH...but I was an emotional mess
After many tests, DH was released to son and went back to his hotel.
Today..totally exhausted.

Hubby is took me out for a movie tonight....he is a member of Coast Guard Auxilary
The movie is "The Finest Hours: The True Story of the U.S. Coast Guard's Most Daring Sea Rescue"
I am told it will be gone by Thursday so it is having only a short run. and there were only 5 in the theatre for the 7pm show
Imagine it will be out on DVD sooner.

Jenn emoticon So good to see you here! and if I may....

Lord God and Father of all the women on this team, we come to You as the children of Israel did so many times on their journey through the wilderness....repentant of our selfish ways, our over-indulgence, our lack of energy....We wish to put you first and to treat our bodies as a Living Temple for Your Spirit to enter our world in blessing to others.
Strengthen us in the tasks of this day. Amen

Hello friends! emoticon I've been MIA for the first month of 2016. Between sickness and marriage issues, I'm very glad to put January behind me. Things are looking much better for February! emoticon

Tina, I can so relate to the house issues. We bought this house 8 years ago. It was an older house then, but we had a DIY attitude that we would fix it. Well, babies didn't come along for us, but braces and college, etc. did. So, we have slowly done a very small amount of the work I want to get done. Maybe I need to make some goals for 2016 in that area...hmmmm

I'm home today because DS has an appointment in just a bit to maybe get braces off. I'm enjoying this morning though of being able to drink my coffee and catch up on spark.

I hope everyone is doing well. I've missed y'all! Hugs and blessings! emoticon

It's always good to see a returning friend. I will be lifting up prayers for you and your daughter. I know I could use a good dose of motivation too. I do have an appointment with a personal trainer tomorrow to learn some of the machines at the gym and to come up with a game plan to get some weight off and gain strength.

God is holding us close - we can do this!

Hi everyone!

I haven't checked in for quite awhile. I figured I was gone so long I was forgotten, but Joyce was sweet enough to put a comment and sparkgoodie on my page today. Thanks, Joyce! It made me realize I can still be part of things.

I've been gaining weight despite trying to do better and its been super discouraging. There have been a LOT of ups and downs and trials lately and I'm hoping the dust will start to settle soon and life can get a new normal. In the meantime, I've been trying to get exercise going regularly and I'm really trying to make some diet improvements. I've got a burst of motivation for that at the moment - a few days ago my 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with high blood pressure. If not for me, then for her, I've got to get this healthy eating thing right.

Nice to meet you to all those who've been around for awhile but I haven't met yet.

Jenn

Hello Sweet Ladies!

I hope you all are doing well. I'm finally over my cold and now Catie is coming down with one. We are making progress on our renovation! We ordered the hardwood flooring, it should come in this Wed!!! emoticon Hubby got all the door trim and baseboard in for our upper floor (we live in a bi-level) and down the steps to the front door. It's finally starting to come together. We bought this house with the plans to renovate it over time, then kid #1, kid #2 and kid #3 came along and put those plans on the backburner. Now it's finally time! We've been here for 13 years. We did do our bedroom and the family room shortly after moving in, but now the family room needs redone since it got the most damage when the dishwasher flooded the house. Right now it is used as the workshop for all the tools hubby needs for the rest of the reno (saws, ladder, painting stuff...)

Anyway...I want to know how you are doing. I am praying that you all are feeling God's love and peace, His comfort and His provision. You are a child of the Living God! A daughter of the King!

Hi friends!

Tina, I loved reading about your daughter's goodie bag. My daughter got hers off in November and she got the same kind of stuff. What a cute idea! She also had a t-shirt that says "Ortho Survivor" in the same theme as survivor.

My 12 year old son is the one who has been sick here. He has been sick since Saturday. Thankfully he hasn't missed school as school has been closed because of the threat of ice/snow. I gave up on the over the counter meds and took him to the doctor today. She diagnosed sinus infection and started him on an antibiotic.

It's been a weird and stressful week for me. We only had school 1 day and 2 teacher workdays. Tension is still there between my husband and me. Just trying to keep my head above water right now.

I hope y'all are all doing well. Stay warm!

Hello Ladies!

Our weather has finally turned cold and snowy. We've been blessed with a mild winter so far, so I can't really complain. It is January in Ohio!

I've been fighting a cold for about 4-5 days now, but it seems to be getting better. I could just about breathe without meds today. Lots of tissues though. emoticon Catie got her braces off today! emoticon first round was a great success. She goes back tomorrow for a semi-permanent retainer that she'll have until she gets braces again as a teen. She will lose some teeth and get new ones in before they start the next round. After the appointment, we went straight to McD's for a chocolate milkshake. The orthodontist gave her a bag of candy that she hasn't been allowed to have with braces - Cracker Jacks, sour gummies, gum, a candy bar emoticon ...very cute idea! Also included was a toothbrush, paste and floss emoticon . She did so good this whole time. She's only 9 and she took care of her teeth so well, no problems at all.

We are making progress on our home projects too (or at least hubby is!) emoticon We go and order our hardwood flooring tomorrow. It's been such a long time that the house has been torn up, so I am very happy with the progress.

I hope you all are having a good start to the new year. Drop a quick note and tell us how you are doing. Lifting up prayers for all my Sisters-in-Christ!

We were actually dry today, but heavy rain is coming in tonight and tomorrow. However, after watching the coverage of the flooding, tornados, and snow, I am not complaining about our rain.

Joyce---I love the daily message that's tied in to the 12 days of Christmas. Thank you for doing it!

I took advantage of the sunny day to take care of some errands today. Kids and I had a dentist appointment and then went shopping. We had some gifts to return and I spent my gift card for new walking/running shoes. They had to special order the ones I wanted because of my big ol' feet, but I am excited to have some new ones. Just what I need to start the New Year off right!

Joyce - praying for continued healing and rest for your hubby

Ravyna- praying for safe travels and a visit filled with love and laughter

I really like the 12 Days idea. It's a treat to open email and see "You have been given a goodie" Thanks Joyce!

Ravyna.....Praying for your safety with all the rain and roads closed in Missouri.

Hubby getting lots of sleep and doing better. Modern medicine in wonderful.

I have challenged myself to give a Goodie gift to each friend and active member of this team each of the 12 Days of Christmas....If I run short on time it may become a discussion thread as Liesa did for December prior to Christmas Day. Will have to see if I can do it!

Joyce--Hope your hubby is better.

Ravyna---Praying for your long trip. It may seem even longer with a 3 1/2 year old!

My daughter and hubby ended up going to the Christmas Eve service while the boys and I stayed home and made dinner. No candlelight. So I am kind of glad I didn't go. I wanted candle light and "O Holy Night/Silent Night" kind of service. He said the first part was more serious, but the last 1/2 was perfect for those with younger children as they gave the kids kazoos to play Christmas music with. Yep, I'm okay missing that.

Today we went to meet my brother and SIL for lunch. He is really the only family I have so it's nice to see him and spend time with him. It finally stopped raining here today so we were able to get outside and enjoy the sun as we walked around after lunch. Seeing everyone in shorts on December 26 is just a little too weird for me though! I like winter to feel like winter. Remind me I said that when I get snowed in in February and start to go nuts! emoticon

So sorry your husband was sick. Hope he gets better soon. We leave in the morning with our daughter and DGD to drive to St Louis where my husband's family is. A long drive, which may become longer with a 3 1/2 year old. God bless you all.

Our church is doing something new this year. On Christmas day they are having a gathering for folks who don't have anyone to celebrate with. They are going to have worship, fellowship, and a meal. I thought that was kind of cool for anyone who was alone this year.

We enjoyed a day at home yesterday. Even with the rain making the outside dreary we had a fun family day inside with games and gingerbread houses.

Today is pretty much a repeat of yesterday. Still rainy and thunder storms outside. We are still in pjs playing games inside. DH wants to go to the Christmas Eve service later. Honestly, I have mixed feelings about it. I like the idea of quiet candle services. But we got a strange email from the church about the service including hot apple cider, "Uncle Tom", and kazoos! Really??? That doesn't sound quiet to me. Plus with the storms I'm leaning toward a quiet night at home with the family.

I hope you all are enjoying some time with your loved ones.
