I took an extra second at a 4 way stop (11pm) after an 'urge' to "Wait";
just as I started into the intersection a vehicle came full tilt more than 40mph without stopping.

Half second sooner and I would have been crunched badly. THANK YOU! God for leading me!!


Prayers for your daughter at school,

emoticon Julie! I love this team and hope you do too!

Psych doc appt today, modified some meds, took a drug test and got an appointment for a month from now due to my severe anxiety. Hoping the med changes will help with that.

Hope, my puppy, was a tiny terror while I was gone. I keep telling DH he needs to work with me at least 5 minutes a day on how to work with her, but it has not happened yet. She peed everywhere but the pee pads, but then they didn't take her outside either, and I was gone 3 hours.

YDD stayed at school today! She has been home the last two days with throwing up due to anxiety. She's going to see my therapist next week. I emailed her teacher and talked with another teacher, they totally understand and apologized for making her feel uncomfortable (episode that I was highly upset about and ready to go all Momma Bear on them about). One of the teachers has a DD that has severe anxiety, so she totally gets it.

Good Morning Ladies - I just found your team and it sounded wonderful. I have been on Spark for quite a while. I have chronic depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder. My time to shut down is coming up soon. It usually starts in the end of August and lasts about a month.
Hope we can be help to each other.

Tina, that is what my DH did with his computer, and whenever it needs an upgrade he just replaces the part not the whole machine. Very cost effective, and he has a great gaming machine because of it! He is a computer programmer. If your son ever has questions that he wants to ask a professional, just let me know and we can get them in touch! DH is always open to talking to kids thinking about the computer programmer career path!

Trying my best to get by. I made a few videos, uploaded two of them, both on Hope (youtube channel Crouching Flea) I'm recording Hope's training via video instead of a spreadsheet or journal, because I'll keep up with it better that way.

Glad to have you back Joyce!

My new computer is finally supposed to be delivered today. Yay! but now, our internet is very spotty and I have a call in to CenturyLink to fix it. Sometime between today and next Monday! I've been using my son's laptop for the past few weeks. He really wants to save up for a gaming computer. He learned how to build a computer the past few years in tech club at his old school. He can get the parts more affordably than buying one prebuilt with his specs. My 14 yo techie!

Certainly missed my computer time over last 5 days! glad to be back.

Did so mess up my eating with travel and sleep deprivation. Sigh. Take a deep breath and plan for better choices starting right now!

Joyce, so true! sleep deprivation just makes everything so much worse. I'm finally starting to get some sleep, but some of it is naps and half of it is on the couch.

Had an okay time at church. I barely know anyone there now that my friend moved and I feel really anxious going. But I know I won't meet new people unless I go.

Have so many stressors right now and am getting more anxious and depressed because of it. Well, I don't know if the depression has anything to do with it, but I'm getting depressed again and that is not good because then I don't play/train my pup as much as I'm supposed to. Having her as a fully trained service dog will be great, but the year and a half to two years it will take to get there are going to be difficult. And fun. Found out Friday that I get to go meet all of the first responders around close to here so that Hope can get used to being around them and will understand that they are okay to come near me if something happens. Will be anxiety inducing and fun at the same time.

We are so low on funds because of all the stuff going wrong with the house that I'll be going to all shakes soon. I have enough shake stuff to last until the next payday, so I will just do that. It won't hurt for me to do it for that long, and maybe I'll lose some more weight. I'm proud of where I'm at, 219, the lowest I've been for years. Now to make it to my next goal, 209!

Making up for it now...3 days of work then Monday driving to see Dad again. He needs a walker.
Then DDS appointment on Tuesday.
Brain is too full of all this and didn't sleep well....that 's what happens with depressed-anxious people....sleep deprivation does not help anything !

Joyce, hope you enjoyed your nap!

Tina, you are so busy! And school hasn't even started yet for you!

Doing okay but busy here. My anxiety is still pretty high on a daily basis. Concentrating on Hope helps, keeps me in the now. I train her a lot. We finally got the hang of a couple more commands, but shake has her totally baffled, lol. I'm hoping the trainer can help with that today.

DH was talking about the school year and how I'll need to drive at night. I can't see at night very well, and when the oncoming car's headlights hit my eyes, I'm all but blinded. It gives me extreme anxiety at to try to drive at night and I nearly wrecked so many times the last time I tried, I have not in over a year. He's usually understanding and works with me, but I think that our oldest finally being in band (he was in band) has him overly excited. I don't know, but I'm not planning on driving at night any time soon. There are special glasses I can get, but they are really expensive and I don't know if they will even help.

emoticon I am tired just listening to your lists! So glad I am out of that space in life.

I got up early and took leisurely photos in a cemetery...came home and took a nap. I don't work again until Friday.

I need to do some 'leader' stuff here on this team.

Hang in there! Praying that things settle down and that you will have the energy and the comfort of God's peace as you face your days ahead.

Lots going on here too. Band camp for my oldest was last week 8am-8pm Mon-Thu with my MIL and her friend driving down to visit and look for a place Mon-Thu as well. Lots of running around! We did find her a place in a retirement village that is an independent living apartment with a ton of perks and a nursing home and rehab center if needed down the road. It's a bit pricey and she could honestly have another year or two before she would need all that it includes, but we think it is the best for her to just get settled. It's a big move coming here in NC from OH all by herself.
This week is band camp 8-5 Mon-Thu, but Thur Hubby and kiddo #1 will be going to OH to see the last golf tournament at the club he worked at. Tiger Woods made the cut so he'll be there too. Also, my BIL and his family are going to be there from CA to help my MIL get ready to move. It will just be me and the 2 younger kiddos until Mon night. We are going to do some exploring, maybe do some school shopping and ice cream eating.
My DD had her orthodontist appointment and she will get her braces put on Aug 20. She is so excited. Her brother has about another year in his. I'm going to try to hold off on the youngest going for a while yet. Can't afford 3 in braces at the same time. emoticon emoticon

So much has been going on! I feel like the last 5 days have been the busiest I've had in a long time and I'm flat wore out from it! But the rest of the week promises to be just as busy with day 'camp' for middle school, open house for elementary, first day of school, buying supplies... and we are behind financially. My anxiety is sky high with all that is going on, but I'm trying to work my way through it.

Training Hope has been wonderful today, we learned three new commands and getting her to actually do them has been fun. I'm training our family dog as well and he is doing his best to learn along with her.

Thanks Joyce. I barely slept last night, so took a long nap this morning. I'm so over Hope's teething, but there is not much I can do other than give her things to chew on. Which I am out of. Tonight is not going to be fun. On the bright side we will probably get a lot of training done in the middle of the night, lol.

I'm having a really hard time right now, can't take the time to myself I need because we have guests coming in two days.

beautiful dog. Hope she found her way home too and was not a dump.

Having some problems with depression and PTSD today, slept with my pup a lot this afternoon so now at bed time she is wide awake. The only problem with going back to bed once she is sleepy enough is that she must, simply must, greet DH every time she gets in bed. That means going over and licking all over his face and head, and nipping at his beard and nose. I've been surprised that he usually laughs about it even from a dead sleep, he is usually so grumpy at night!

My determination fell because of my PTSD episode. I ate a chocolate ice cream bar. I can't explain why, I just, emotionally was such a wreck I felt like I needed to eat and it was on hand. But I'm going to try harder tomorrow, and no matter what not eat off plan. I really want to meet my 3 month goal and I won't if I'm eating like this!

The mind does have a lot of control over things like that.

Today DH made carrots and onions roasted in the oven with EVOO, sesame oil and S&P. Oh my goodness was it yummy!! Healthy fats, healthy veggies, healthy portions... all for a good really late lunch. I will have more for dinner.

I don't know how Hope's progress is going, but to me she is doing good. She could be doing better at the potty training I think, but that is my fault for not wanting to use my knee on the stairs too much.

Made a spur of the moment trip to Visit Dad & Step Mother on 19th.... First thing he said to me was "I'm going to be 94 in October; but I won't be around by Christmas"
I consulted with the Nurse at the Assisted Living facility. Neither of us see any medical reason for this statement of his.
But the mind has a lot of control and he is ready to meet his Savior so it certainly could happen that way.

Joyce, I agree, that sounds wonderful!

Tina, I hope all goes well with the visit, and I'm so happy for you about the pool! Neither of my kids know how to swim, which is weird because we live on a lake. One does not want to the other is too lazy. I've told them no pool till they know how to swim though.

Puppy, Hope, was up all night last night just about, which means I barely got any sleep. And when she finally went to sleep, I was wide awake. I took her to my therapy appointment today, and she just loves my therapist. Fell asleep under a rocking chair, lol. But that meant I had to people more, there were more people than usual in the lobby and I had a puppy, so everyone wanted to chat or say hi, ask questions. I was not prepared for this today as normally the lobby is empty by the time I leave (therapist always runs about 10-20 minutes late). But my therapist saw I was overwhelmed and asked if she could take the puppy out to potty, which really helped.

I like it! Take care of Joyce day should be everyday!

I'm feeling a little frazzled. My parents are coming for a visit this weekend. I still have some issues with my dad, so they are staying in a hotel nearby and bringing their jack russell pup. I'm fine with the visit as long as I still have some healthy boundaries in place. (like not staying in our house) lots to do to get the house company ready. On top of that I am searching for a condo or apartment for my MIL since she needs a place rather quickly. her house sold and she needs to be out by Aug 20. (it's sold, but contingent on the new owner selling their house, but they will rent for up to 7 months and then their company will buy out their old house as part of the relocation and then it will be officially sold) lots of legal stuff, but we're working it out. AND...my MIL called this morning and she fell and had to have the paramedics come. Luckily she has an alarm she wears and was able to push the button to get help. She hit her head and cut her wrist. She's okay, just really shaken up.
emoticon
My computer has died and I've been using my son's laptop.

BUT... I made it to water aerobics today and I feel really good - like a noodle, but good! Our development has a pool with swim lessons for young kids (my Carter is taking lessons - doing great!) twice a week and water aerobics on Wed. mornings. Today it was just me and the kids, so they swam around while I did my class - nice to have 1-on-1 instruction.

Now for a healthy dinner plan and some straightening up!

Just drained today. Mammogram, blood donations, fasting blood work, grand daughter visit, worked the weekend. Taking a day at home with minimal demands.
It is "Be nice to Joyce" day....but that does not mean chocolate and cupcakes.

Hope your iron levels out! I admire that you give so often. I totally would but the meds I'm on prevent it.

I'm not doing well right now, and I feel awful about it because so much good is going on right now that I should be ecstatic! So today I'm going to really work on my coping skills. I'm going to start on crochet projects that maybe I can put up for donation (with a minimum price so I don't lose money on yarn) to raise money for my service dog. My Gofundme account has fizzled out and though people still read the updates and send me comments, it's dried up. So I'm doing what I can to raise money for the monthly cost of training my service dog. The dog, downpayment, basic supplies and doggie boot camp for family dog are all paid for. I'd say that I'm pretty blessed that we have just enough for that. Now to worry about the training.

Anyway. coping skills and cleaning today. We had so much fun at the beach with friends yesterday that we stayed three hours and we all got a little burnt. I have a burnt spot above my lip that looks like I smudged lipstick on myself, LOL.

About blood donations

My plasma is 'universal donor' quality and I can give every 28 days. Was hoping for 12 donations in 2018. This will put me behind and I don't think I will make it.
Perhaps taking that pressure off is a good thing.

Joyce, what fun, kayaking!

Tina, sounds like you are busy but in a good fun way of getting to know your surroundings and having fun too.

Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying summer. We've had a wet summer and so the times I would normally go to the lake or splash pad, it is still chilly. By the time it warms up, there are swarms of people, that neither I nor my kids want to deal with, way over crowded. But hopefully today it will get warmer earlier. We'll see!

How fun! We've gone canoeing as a family and had loads of fun. Near our new house, we have a large reservoir park with kayaking, fishing, hiking trails. So far, the little we have explored is lovely. Our neighborhood development has a walking trail going over the old cart paths from when it was a golf course. Looking forward to cooler weather when we can take our bikes for long rides. emoticon

We are still settling in, doing lots of house-things. Bikes are buried under boxes and bins in the garage that need unpacked. Today is more unpacking and setting things up. Hubby is smoking some pork in his new smoker - yummy! Next Saturday we are going to N Myrtle Beach for my b-day. emoticon It's 2 hours away. We've been up to Raleigh which is about an hour to buy furniture, get a Costco membership and to see a movie (Incredibles 2- so good!). emoticon

So far, it's been pretty hot here. emoticon We've been to the development's pool a few times a week. My youngest is taking swim lessons and I am taking a water aerobics class on Wed mornings. emoticon I also got my NC drivers license and license plates for my van. emoticon Hubby got his license yesterday and still needs plates. Mine were going to expire Sat on my b-day so I was in a hurry to get mine. He's got a little more time. I also got a library card, a big priority for me! emoticon emoticon

It's been a while since I've had some real Spark-time, so I really need to catch up on all news from Sparkfriends. Hopefully after dinner I can read up on some posts and maybe write a blog entry.

Got low census for Saturday..today.. so met some gals from work at Fellows Lake (Springfield's drinking water) and we went kayaking!!
There is no swimming on Fellows Lake emoticon but when you fall out of a kayak....it feels a lot like swimming.

Had a great time; but am truly exhausted now.

A good way to keep your pictures safe is to save it to a cloud like Google Cloud. That way if your computer fails, you don't have to worry about losing all your data.

Doing good today, spent plenty of time outside, but want to go and just spend the whole day out there! ODD wants to bake something, anything, so we are going to make some marble rye bread. Looks good. Hopefully we can get it right!

Hope your computer troubles are over soon and it gets fixed.

I'm doing pretty good, I met my first goal, now to set another! I can't wait to get to Onederland!! I know it will take time, but gosh it has been so long! In the meanwhile I will keep walking and doing everything I can to reach that goal.

My 1 week f/u with the surgeon went great, he says I'm doing really good. I just need to stay up on my hydration.It is difficult to do so.

The computer fix did not last because it needs a new 'motherboard' ... so borrowing here and there

Say an occasional prayer for Mike Parson. He was sworn in as Governor of Missouri yesterday.
He was the Sheriff when we moved into Polk County....It is awesome to see an everyday normal farmer rise to State Governor!

TGIF!

I'm really wore out, but am slowly getting to where I can sleep more at a time at night, so I'm not getting up for this or that constantly. I would be napping now but DH is napping. Poor thing has been up so much from helping me, he deserves a good nap. I hope he gets one.

Joyce, I loved the goodie, thank you!

I'm home and recovering! I do miss the hospital bed, being able to get out of bed by myself. If I lay too far down, I can't use my stomach muscles enough to get myself back up, so must have DH help. I should be back to good by the end of the first two weeks, so I'm praying for that. I feel like a helpless turtle on my back like that, lol.

Depression hit me in a black wave last night. I was told this might happen. I'm fine today, but was not last night. I hope it doesn't happen again. I pray it doesn't. I prayed through it last night, that is the only thing that got me through.

Wow! It's coming quick! Probably not quick enough for you emoticon

The new house is official ours! Hubby signed papers Wed. and the movers delivered everything Fri morning. Hubby has been so good about everything. I REALLY wish I was down there. Today he spent the day driving 1 hr to Costco to join and get a few things - a tv and a lawnmower. I'm on the hunt for bar stools. Wayfair and Overstock haven't revealed any gems yet.

It looks like we could be moving the week of June 3. School is out on the 1st and the last soccer game is the 2nd (unless they make it to tournament-it's not looking so good emoticon ) Hubby might be up that weekend to help. Hoping he can. We need the extra space in his van emoticon . He is leaving most of the unpacking for me (per my request) but the house is a giant mess of boxes right now. Poor guy! We had to order a new mattress and it will be delivered at the end of May. Great deal at Sam's Club.

I can't wait to get down there!!

Tina, you sound so busy, I hope you are getting some quiet time too!! Congrats on the new house and every step along the way!!

I'm depressed, though I feel like I should not be with so much good happening. I talked to the trainer and the puppies are due next weekend! Probably Friday she said. I'm so excited, but it's being squashed by the depression. GA law is that you can't get the puppies till they are 8 weeks, so if they are born on time I'll get my future service dog on the 14th of July!! The trainer (which is the breeder's DD) is going to pick out my puppy for me, do the puppy test and all that good stuff.

I'm doing great on day 6 of my pre-op diet, just 8 more days and a wake-up to go!

It has been soooo busy around here! We have moved out of our OH home as of last week and into my MIL's, and signed papers on Monday to turn it over to the new owners. It was a whirlwind of a weekend cleaning up after the movers left and Hubby being here. Today I'm fielding emails and phone calls trying to coordinate all the paperwork for the new house. We close on it Wed. at 3:00. Hubby is signing for me with a POA. Waiting on some more info so I can wire the down payment to the lawyers' office. Not to mention all the shuttling of kids around with the end of school year programs and trips, soccer and just staying 15 minutes south of our old house so now it's 25 minutes to get to school now. Before, they rode the bus.
Anyway - things will settle down soon (I hope!). We'll be heading south to NC the first or second week of June (depends on soccer tournaments). It'll be here before we know it.

emoticon I have been donating Plasma which I can do every 28 days. But they talked me into trying to add platelets .... It did not go well. I got light-headed and nauseous. They stopped the machine for about 5 minutes and fed me a handful of Tums (calcium) then were able to restart and finish up.

On the bright side: ........they prescribed buying a milk shake (more calcium) as soon as I left them emoticon

Wishing you a wonderful night, Joyce! What an accomplishment!

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the move to-do's. It's a constant state of checking emails for different things about each of the houses, movers, lawyers, mortgage, insurance...the list goes on! Today was scanning and emailing w2's, paystubs, driver's licenses. Hubby is doing his stuff on his end and then I have to dig up paperwork on my end. And this living apart is really hard. He is loving his new job so that is a big blessing. He's exploring the area and bragging about the weather. We woke up to snow (again!) and it's in the mid-70's there. We'll be there soon! Less than 2 months and we'll all be down there together. Hubby will get to move into the new house during the second week of May. We sign papers here on May 7, and he is signing by POA on the 9th down there. Praying everything goes according to plan. Our realtor kind of encouraged us to have the short turnaround, but it is going to be stressful getting everything lined up for transferring money from one to the other on the short time crunch. This is the first time we've ever done this (bought and sold at the same time) so we didn't know the whole logistics.

Thanks for letting me vent. I don't want to burden hubby with the rambling when there is so much he needs to focus on right now. Say a prayer or two for us, please!
