If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Piyo is a combination of pilates and yoga. It is really a fast paced yoga class. I've been doing yoga since last July and piyo since last September. I really like them both. Check out some videos on youtube.

Hello y'all!

I had a crazy buzy April. But I'm back! Miss you all so much. I am going to get certified to teach Piyo in June. I am trying to cut junk food out until then.

Happy 5 of May!

Melissa getting some things done but ended up wiping myself out and now it has been raining so hopefully will be able to finish the front sprinklers tomorrrow or this weekend. The ones near the sidewalk did not need to be raised but had to get the grass out of its way. I still have to fix the break in the system and also figure out how to change the pump where the water comes up to the sprinkler system since it is leaking some.


Bri hopefully he will realize that no one cares for him more than his family and people just don't care about giving him what he thinks that they owe him. That is one thing that is wrong with some of the sports and in school today, they give them praise when they don't deserve it. The real world does not do that at all. This feel good for the kids is just plan wrong.

My son is digging himself a hole, he's not accepting the world doesn't owe him and is letting others take care of him. He broke his cell phone and I had to buy myself a new one (mine was the only line that qualified) through the Verizon edge program and now I have a "smart" phone. Yay......
You sound busy, Melissa. I hope your visit with your parents goes well.
Hugs all.

Bri...hope this week is better!
Dorothy...sounds like you have been getting a lot done there. How are you feeling this week? My parents leave Saturday (my brother is driving them here) and they will stay with us for a week before I drive them up to WI for the summer. They've been busy with dr. appts and packing.

The kids have standardized testing this week and next. So far so good. My daughter caused an incident at home on Tuesday and she's refusing to do her consequences so she is digging herself quite a hole. My son and DH are packing for their Scout pack camping trip this weekend so they will leave tomorrow after school and be back Sunday.

I am headed out to get a hair cut and then run a bunch of errands. Tomorrow I will finish my cleaning ;)

Hope you all are doing well!

Melissa that is great that the troupe is better and that she likes it. Had something like that happen to my daughter and she decided not to keep going. It was caused by the leaders daughter causing my daughter problems and she would not address her daughters behavior either. I don't think there was another troupe close either but that left a bad experience in my daughter and she did not want to be in another troupe.

Well have been taking it easy since getting the front sprinklers done and then mowing the lawn., That wiped me out for a couple of days and it did not help that my son's ex came for two days and we have the dog too. She broke up with the other guy and can not accept it that he does not want to be with her. The other problem is that she still likes my son but will not admit it to herself or to anyone else. My son told her that he is not into playing these games with her and that she needs to figure out what she wants and then do it.

Hi all!
Late check in tonight...did a lot of gardening and yard work the past two days! 2 hours Friday around the front of the house and 4 hours today! I planted over 30 perennial plants after cleaning out 2 different flower beds and refilling with good soil for the plants to grow in. I also pruned two big camellia trees today. My DH put in about half of the fence posts for the new garden today too. A lot of work but we are getting there! My daughter helped for a few hours today too which was great.

Dorothy...thanks for asking about the new troupe. It is SO MUCH better! My daughter is loving it! And the moms are so much easier to get along with. I talked to the old troupe leader today and they will let her receive her bronze award for this year (which is good) even though she has already switched to a new group.

Anyway...I'm over the strep now, but still have a lot of writing to get done so I will have to buckle down and write all day tomorrow and get it done!

Take care all!
Melissa

Well busy with PT for my back. It seems that the pain in my right side is caused by my back and it being so tight and causing the muscles to be inflamed. Tomorrow is the last day for PT and I might get the last shot since my side is acting up again. I do feel that it is still tight but it cost to much to continue with PT. I have not heard from the cardio so I will be calling my Doctor to see what happened to the referral. My laptop monitor went out and priced the motherboard and it was $264 and add a little more money and I can get a new one but right now I need things fixed around the house and will use the money for that.

Melissa how did the new girl scout troupe go?

CRAZY_BREEZY that is all the hormones that they put in animals and some of the food too. Early puberty is one of the signs of getting all those growth hormones, maybe you want to switch to organic milk and organic foods that has the most pesticides in them

Hi all! It's a busy time of year!
I know everyone is busy so just say hello when you can ;)

My in laws were here, I was sick with strep (again) and now this week I am a contract writer. The garden is half way done so we need to finish this weekend. Lots of rain here lately.

I will try to check in more later...how is everyone doing?

Take care,
Melissa

Wow! What a week! Phew!
Busy week with stuff going on each day. My daughter has been sick and she tested positive for strep. We just can't get rid of it around here!
My DH has been traveling all week and got back late last night. I've had sitters in to help each night while I'm teaching. It's been hectic but we made it. This weekend we have to get the house clean and get the garden set up. Many of the seeds we started have sprouted so we can't wait to get everything in the ground!
My in laws will be here next week for part of the week and weekend. The kids have spring break next week so we're just going to relax and do some fun things.

What is everyone doing for Passover or Easter?
We're decorating eggs tomorrow, going to church Sunday and it will just be us for dinner on Sunday. My in laws will come Wed or Thursday. I'm getting some books and fun things for the kids Easter baskets today.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Bri...hang in there. Glad you are seeing your doc. Hope you can find some relief. Ugh...puberty! I'm so sorry. My daughter is in 5th and she's not quite there yet, but soon. I worry a lot about her because she also has Oppositional Defiance Disorder and I know how wicked that can be during adolescence. I'll be praying for you all!

My Rosie is improving...the vet gave us antibiotics, pain meds and a probiotic to give her so I'm keeping the meds going and I think she is starting to feel better. I'm so sorry you lost your cat to that Bri. It's so hard to figure out that they have it because they can't tell you, and unless you see them pee every time it is easy to miss.

We have a girl scout meeting with the new troop this afternoon...can't wait! My DH is taking my son out to Kennesaw (about an hour drive) for a soccer game at 5pm...going to be a late night for them since they won't get home until 8pm or later. We're getting as much of our Sunday routines done this afternoon as we can.
Soccer was rough yesterday...tough loss, but I've talked with my son about the level of personal practice and effort it is going to take to improve his skills. This is an opportunity for him so we will help him step up and put in the hard work. He's pretty good at most things he does without having to study or work at it, so this is new for him and I think it is really good for him.

Allright...back to work here!
Have a wonderful Sunday all!

I'm trying to harden my hot pepper seedlings...they have 2 leaves now, but are curling in on themselves. I hope they survive.
I'm having issues with both my kids....daughter is in early puberty and boy the mood swings! My son has set himself on a difficult path, but he's 18 now. I'm not really able to do anything about it, just be supportive.
I've bloated up and I'm having womanly issues so I see my Dr. tomorrow. Dorthy, we have that in common. Mellisa, please keep an eye on your doggie. I lost a cat to that it and broke all our hearts.
Hugs to everyone.

Hi all,

Dorothy...glad your son is helping with the computers...such a hassle though.
Glad you are seeing the cardiologist but I hope nothing is wrong.

Busy day. Started with an early soccer game and it was only 40 degrees and windy! Tough game for our team, but maybe it will motivate them to work harder. I had a talk with my son about it and he has agreed to do all the soccer drills on the days they don't have practice. We'll help him and work with him, but we'll see if he will stick with it. The teams they are playing are playing at a higher level and it shows.

Had a piano consult this afternoon and I am sad to say that the kids were rude. If my children behaved that way in front of an adult they just met, I would be embarrassed. I don't know if they will sign up for piano with me, but if either of them do they will first get a lesson in manners and etiquette in order to be in my studio.

I was out several times today to walk the dog. She has a urinary tract infection so I'm encouraging her to drink a lot of water and to go out a lot. Tonight I also did a lot of stretching with my daughter. She does ballet and I suggested she do her stretching routine with me while my son was out doing soccer drills with my DH.

Time to run for now...bed is calling!
Take care all!

Sounds like you all are having so much going on. Sorry for being on here hit and miss but I have two computers that are shutting them selves off on me while I am on sparks or any other place. I am trying to get my son to get my laptop done first so that when I do the computer room I don't have to worry about not being able to use it as well. I have to change out the old desk and get the new one built in the room.

I also have been going to PT for my back, it seems that it is so tight that is is putting pressure on my ribs. I have gotten a shot in my back to help with the nerves being inflamed and they are trying to calm that down so that it can loosen my muscles in my back. I also got a call today about my stress test and they are sending me to a cardoilogist to see what is going on. They said that there was some abnomalities in the test. So we will see what happens when I do get to see the heart doc.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Thank you! How are you doing?

Feeling pretty good today ;)
Although I had to drop my Rosie off at the vet this morning...she had blood in her urine. They are doing tests today and will call this afternoon. Busy weekend ahead for us so I need to keep moving today and get some things done. Supposed to get cold again too so I have to bring all my plants in tonight.

What is everyone up to this weekend?

Thank you for that CrazyBreezy! I will hold my tongue and set that boundary...thank you.

I had a pretty good talk with one friend on Tuesday...she is the girl scout troop leader and I felt we needed to clear the air before she came to my Bible study group this week. We shared and both apologized for communicating poorly and misinterpreting things. That said, my daughter is still transferring to another troop and I've learned that this friend is easily swayed by others so I still have to be careful around her.

My Bible study group was great yesterday...fun group and great conversation with good questions!

I'm either almost done or done with this flare...more energy and getting more done, less pain and none of the other annoying symptoms. If I continue to improve I'm going to start running again next week! Can't wait!

Take care everyone and have a wonderful rest of the week!

Melissa, hold your head high and remember....you are strong, smart, and more mature then an individual that has to entertain themselves talking about others. If I were in that situation, I would probably say "That's rather personal." I hope this helps.

Breezy...so excited for you! Congrats on losing weight! Sometimes you have to tune out everything else and just focus on your inner energy...good for you! We've missed you too.

I have a question for all of you. A couple of moms I have to interact with because of soccer or scouting or other activities our kids are in, have been clearly talking about me and my Lupus behind my back (not in a good way). Last week I got an email saying basically 'don't bother showing up for xxxx event on Saturday since it will be too much for you.' Then yesterday I was at my son's soccer match and one of the moms (in this little clique) gave me that 'concerned' look and asked me, 'How are you feeling...I mean with the lupus?' I know this woman to be a huge gossip so I just said fine and changed the subject and she pretty quickly went away. My question is, what are some ways to respond to a judgmental group that you have to deal with at least for the next few months?
Right now I'm offended and angry and want to rant at them about how ignorant, disgusting and awful they are. How dare they judge what I am capable of? How dare they pretend to be concerned? How dare they try to cut me out of anything?
Yeah...I'm thinking that's not the right response. These are not close friends so I know I could also just suck it up and ignore them and say nothing. I'm not in 7th grade anymore so the adult in me can move on. But I'm still not sure what the best response is. Any suggestions?

Anyway...rainy here today. We got a lot done outside yesterday. My DH rented a garden tiller and tilled a large area for our garden. We're expanding and moving our garden space so it's a lot of work this year. But in the end it will be worth it. We'll also have to build a high fence to keep the deer out and I'll still do the raised beds. Yesterday my daughter and I got all our seeds planted so that when the garden is ready we'll have plants ready too.
I also got the wireless pet fence set up on Friday and started training Rosie so hopefully it will work for her. We are taking the current fence down and re-doing the back yard so that we have more room overall and a better space for the kids (and for us).

Time to go...hope you all are doing well!

I've been isolating some, I'm kind of on a spiritual journey, exploring the Buddhist philosophy, emoticon doing yoga, and meditating.

That makes two of us...missed you Breezy! How are you doing? Please jump right in!

I'm hanging in there...dealing with side effects from restarting the Plaquenil and starting another med. Nausea and stomach cramping :(

Otherwise doing well. Funny story...last Saturday I ordered a wireless fence for the dog thinking we would start training Rosie this weekend. Well...today while I was cleaning I let her out not realizing the fence had fallen down. When I discovered it, she was down in the creek getting completely muddy and having a blast! I got her back in and got her cleaned up, then got myself cleaned up. Hopefully the wireless system will arrive today...have to laugh at such great timing!

Hopefully you all are having a great day!

Hello

Melissa so glad your back on track. I think my meds are working too. I also use some essential oils on my elbow. It feels like tennis elbow but the pain has been going on since January. I need to make an appointment.

Both my kids played the clarinet in middle school. I loved hearing their music.

The weather is warming up and it's nice to be outside without jackets. I did see a snake in front of our house yesterday...eeeek.

Have a blessed day
Kristy

Hi all!

Half day of school for mine today so now we are snuggled in on a cool rainy day!
I just got a great email report from my new dr and according to all the blood work results, we are on the right track with all the supplements. She wants to increase my Vit. B and see if we can get my thyroid up a bit with that before having to go on medication. I will meet with her next week just to check in and see what's next.

Yesterday marked one year without our sweet Ginger (choc lab) who died of cancer. She had a good 11 years and we are happy that she has been without pain and suffering even though we still miss her here.

My parents asked if I would be able to drive them up to Wisconsin in May so I'm making plans to have them stay here for a few days and then drive them up. My DH is getting me a flight back using his frequent flier miles. So glad I can help them out a bit!

Time to run...have to get some lunch and then get ready for piano lessons ;)
Take care all and make it a great weekend!

Hey everyone!

Kristy...enjoy working in the yard. Always feels good to get outside work done! We have a lot to get done here too.

I think the Plaquenil is starting to kick back in. I have less pain in my shoulder even though the rainy weather has been hanging around. One of the new supplements is a bit too much for me and causing some diarrhea so I'm backing down to every other day. Otherwise I'm feeling a little better overall and getting some energy back! So maybe by this time next week I can get back to running and working out? We'll see!

Way too much mama drama going on around me and I'm staying away from it. One mom from soccer keeps texting me to find out how I'm doing and how the kids are doing and why I'm never at soccer practice (I'm working). She is looking for gossip. Yesterday another mom from the Girl Scout troop (which I am treasurer of) called and yelled at me and hung up on me! Weird! So glad we are leaving that troop.

On a fun note...pun intended...the middle school music teachers were visiting 5th grade classes this week and my daughter is excited about joining band next year! She doesn't know what she wants to play yet, but I have my mom's clarinet that I also played in middle and high school. I have to take it and get new pads and corks, but it's an old wood clarinet with beautiful tone. If she wants to use it she can ;) If not, maybe I'll practice up and get my chops back.

I have to run...did my errands this morning and now I need to finish my chores and get ready for lessons this afternoon. Take good care everyone!

Hello everyone!

The last couple of days have been so nice. I am taking tomorrow off to help hubby in the yard. I am looking forward to spending time with him and making the yard beautiful again.

I hope y'all are doing great. I had an excellent piyo class yesterday and a wonderful zumba class today!

Hi all!
Late check in for me after a long day! Got my writing finished and turned in on time today. My son has not felt good all weekend. He played soccer Saturday even though he wasn't feeling great. Yesterday he spiked a fever so he had to miss his game and he was home today. I'm taking him to the dr. in the morning.

I had a little more energy today (I think) so hopefully I am making progress and can get some things done this week.

How is everyone else this week?

Take care,
Melissa

Hi...just a quick check in!
My son's soccer practice was cancelled last night due to freezing rain and high winds and it was cold this morning. But it's supposed to warm up this weekend. My DH agreed to take our daughter to ballet last night so I could stay home and write. Today I have a couple of errands to run and some music to prep for lessons. Tomorrow I plan to write all day.

I'm still battling the fatigue and joint pain, so hopefully once the Plaquenil kicks back in and the supplements start to work I can feel better again.
Take care all!

Hi everyone,

I've been noticing so much drama going on all around lately...is it just me? Whew...maybe it's the moon cycles, or the winter cold, or SAD? Either way I'm glad I'm staying out of all of it!

So far so good here this week. I'm slowly starting to feel a bit more energetic. Hopefully once the Plaquenil kicks in again I will have less daily pain and I can start to work out again for real. My son's soccer season is in full swing now...2 nights a week of practice and games both Saturdays and Sundays. We'll see how it goes...we didn't intend to sign up for this travel league (thought we were in the rec portion). He loves the coaching and instruction he is getting so we'll see how the season goes. I have to get to work on my writing so I can't post much here now until after I'm done next Monday.
If I don't check in...have a fantastic weekend everyone!

Hi all!

Finally a little sun and some warmer temps today!

Had a good Bible study this morning and soon have to get my kids off the bus, then lessons. My DH is traveling so I'm on my own and have to save enough energy to put the kids to bed ;)

How is everyone else doing this week? Check out one of the challenges for this month...hope you can pick one ;)

Take care,
Melissa

Yay for new sandals! I think everyone is ready for spring...my friends up North have battled two rough winters in a row. Glad you are using essential oils. I have several that I use either topically or infused in the air. We'll have to swap uses/recipes!

My DH took the vacuum cleaner on Saturday to get a part replaced and they got it working in the store, but now it doesn't work again. My poor floors have not been vacuumed in a week! I admit it's driving me a little crazy...must be OCD...lol! I'm trying to ignore it and maybe this weekend he can take it in again.

Time to go...have writing and piano stuff to do before I swap laundry!
Take care and have a great day everyone!
