Absolutely amazing rain is falling. Have a nice day everyone.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

We survive in overdrive but it does get easier. Make sure you are getting enough magnesium. Apparently if you do not get enough of this other vitamins can't be absorbed nto make us feel good.

good morning onthis early Sunday morning (230am)...this is one of the few times I can get some peace and quiet to relax and catch up...
Georgia, your vacay plan sounds great..it is good that your DH's doctor put him straight on what your needs are..
Becky, glad you are feeling better and were able to get out and about today..
Cathy, it seems that the polder we get the less tolerant our bodies become of the things we try and force on/in it...post menopause has changed everything for me...I am trying to plan my eating better and starting to walk again, but I feel soooo sluggish all the time...even with 40 athletes on my special olympics track team I cant seem to find my old energy...sigh....I hope you are able to get some help, I like Georgia's idea of visiting a naturopath.....it might help!!
Dee, don't forget to save time for you, slow down when you can...
Me and the kiddos spent the day at one of those "all under one roof" amusement arcade places..they did bowling, roller skating, crazy golf, and had pizza, all free as part of our membership in ARC (its a national self-advocacy program for special needs individual)..I was more pooped by the end of it than they were, but 2 out of 3 of them crashed early this evening, they were more tired than they realized...
Gotta go to bed so I can get up for church in 5 hours....ugh...too early... love church, but now I have stayed up too late and don't really want to get up in the morning....lol
have a great Sunday yall...

Amanda and Cathy, sending Hugs, Prayers, and healing thoughts your way.

Amanda, how Wonderful for your daughter and the dance program!! WTG! I also think it's hormones especially for a girl her age. Do hope the court stuff gets settled quickly for you.

Cathy, I'm not sure what to tell you on your GI issues. Seems you have figured out what is causing your problems... Georgia's idea of going to a doc that deals with the whole body in a natural way might be your best bet.

Becky, glad you are doing better. Your hike sounds lovely.

Georgia, a holiday on your own....sounds AWESOME! Tasmania....will have to look that up and see what it's like. I'm sure you will take some gorgeous pictures while you are there.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. been busy, busy at work. have tomorrow off and i'm going to enjoy sleeping in (hopefully) and just relaxing.

So nice to catch up with everyone!

Georgia, I am thrilled that you are going on a solo holiday. Perfect and well deserved!

Thanks for the prayers, etc. So glad to feel human again - actually went on a couple mile walk in the hills with one of my student teachers (her PE class is based around walking). Felt so good to move my body and be outside again, even if it was hot.

Hugs to all. Enjoy the weekend!

My dear Amanda what a heavy burden you have. So much to handle on your own.

Firstly having just finished with a 4 year long drama in court I hear you on the delays in your sons case.I pray for a quick outcome and a good result. I think it definitely is hormones with your daughter. These days girls mature so much younger. I have no solutions as I only had boys but I do feel girls are harder when they get hormonal, I see it at work every day. But on How truly wonderful her achievements in dance are. I feel so proud along side with you. I am so glad you were able to get the funding or nearly all the funding for her chance to achieve.
Praying for more positives to reach you each day.

Cathy I understand your health issues. Have you thought about going to a naturopath (I don not know if they are called something different over there) who may be able to help you with your health issues. Mine has me on 2 types of probiotics for my gut issues. I also do not eat any breads, pasta and limited rice. The minute I do eat bread products I feel unwell or get heartburn again. I wish I knew how to help.....Praying for an answer to drop in your lap soon.

As you all lnow my DH's mental health has not been the best for a few years now and each time we try for a holiday/vacation it only lasts for a few days. Usually 2. Not long enough for me to recover my energy and give my mind some peace. On Monday when he went to his therapist he told him how sick I was last week and how short my fuse is of late. The doctor told him it is time to send me on a holiday on my own. He was convinced and now I have booked myself on a holiday to Tasmania in May. I am so excited to say the least.

I will keep you updated but it is only 48 days to go......

Love you all and wish you a happy weekend.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Hugs to all, healing for those that are not well and strength and energy to everyone!

It's been very busy and too much going on to go into. Very stressful though.

I am trying to weed through the best protocol for eating considering my GI issues. The regular Drs. just don't get it and give you advice that just makes things worse because they just...don't..get...it!! I have had a really hard time trying to regulate what I eat so that I don't have the GI negative reaction.
I think I have pretty well figured out what I have an intolerance to, and so need to stick firmly to not having those foods. That isn't hard...what is hard is that if I am to stay away from those foods I need to buy the more expensive "clean" food and make most things myself. I don't mind that and rather enjoy cooking and baking, but time is of the essence. So, any thoughts or ideas you have, I would so appreciate! I am so overwhelmed with trying to take care of my health which I deem a huge priority right now and take care of everything else.
My teen (now 13) is sucking me dry with his meltdowns, "visions", attitudes, etc. I love him, he's awesome, but oh my word is he challenging right now!
He actually went what he called a "prayer walk" one day! Great you say! Yes, IF he had told us he was leaving the house! We looked all over for him for hours, finally called the police and they helped us track him down! He was walking, "blessing" people and praying for people at the vets that he happened to step into where a dog was very sick! 5 hours later I got my son back, but as his Aspie self would have it, he didn't really get why we were so worried! sigh
Anyways, that's the kind of stuff going on here. School is going well, thankfully, phew!
So, I am working on my eating plan so I can be free of my GI issues which are so debilitating at times due to being "tied to the toilet." I know, TMI. I know some is due to stress, but the other really big part is intolerance to corn, wheat, some citrus, and additives and preservatives, to name the big ones.
Sorry to ramble on.
I hope everyone is well and am praying for all to be well and healthy.

Hugs to all!! Thanks for putting up with me!!

good morning friends/sisters....
No excuses for absence other than the crud of life, but I have finally got a minute where I am able to connect with y'all so I am here, handing out love, virtual prescriptions for better health, hugs, whatever is needed...I really do miss everyone and the daily interactions but sometimes it seems like I am so deep in whatever is going on in life that there is no time to stop and enjoy a few minutes of time for myself....
Dee, I am glad you are feeling better, sorry you had sickness, and hope things are going smoothly at work..
Cathy, how's school going this year? It been harder for us as the kids get older, sometimes I get frustrated, but after all of the crud that happened to two of mine when they were in the public school system in our county, I don't think I could put them into the public schools here...my middle son almost went back but they refused to let him use the online program if he goes back in the Fall, even though he will not be successful without it, so I guess he will be staying home still for high school like his siblings...
Georgia, sorry you have been so unwell...hope you can rebound fully...hope work is treating you well...have you and hubby been able to get out and hike/visit places much recently?
Becky, glad your mom is feeling better...the older we get the longer it takes for us to recover, so what seems like a relatively minor ailment can quickly become a big problem...glad she is on the road to recovery...your sinus infection sounds absolutely awful...sure hope it gets better real fast...hugs...
Vicky, glad your son wasn't seriously hurt, that's always scary for us moms so glad things worked out well...hope you had a fun b/day too...
howdy and hugs to everyone I have missed, hope life is being fair to you...
short update on my gang: we are still dealing with the courts on my middle son's so-called arson attempt...we are supposed to be getting a full competency evaluation between now and July per the court's request, its very frustrating to have the case held over our heads for so long, it really needs to be set aside and charges dropped but I guess they want to "make an example" or him..grrr...I could make a big fuss but I am trying to play it cool for now and keep my son "under the radar". His eating disorder is better than before but his seizures and headaches continue to be an issue (since his TBI back in January 2014). My oldest, almost 16, can be a gentle soul but he can also be very verbally and physically abusive...he is bipolar as well as ASD and so it can be scary when he gets angry...he has such a sweet soul but is determined to be "dark", and his fascination with deviant stuff doesn't help :(
My daughter is in full-on almost-13 behavior stuff...man, girls are sooo much harder than boys to handle...sneaky, smart mouth, attitude, poor behavior choices, instigating stuff with her brothers.....can we say hormones?..lol. On a positive note she has an awesome opportunity this summer that I just have to share because I am so proud of her..she has danced for several years, and at the start everyone loved her, she was considred so good/talented, she was in a pre-professional program etc..well, then, a few years ago, she hit a metaphorical brick wall..her autism caught up with her and she no longer performed to the required standard to be able to stay in the pre-professional level of classes, kids/peers started to be mean and make fun of her, some bullied her, the teachers started to become very offhand with her, and I could see it was totally demoralizing her..she got to the point where she would cling to me, begging me not to leave her at the dance studio...I tried to follow suggestions by therapists etc to let her figure it out for herself, but finally, after the dance studio owner was a complete a** when we went to register her for classes last fall, I walked out of the studio knowing we would never go back...Well, an angry momma is an actively involved momma, so I immediately went to work to find her somewhere else she could dance, and found a wonderful studio where she is welcomed and supported, and she once again fell in love with dance (dance is so good for her because of her stimming etc, which involves spinning constantly)...fast forward a few months and she is loving dance still...in February I took her to audition for the summer program at Nashville Ballet, where she tried out, just for fun. She was one of over 2000 youth aged 12-23 who auditioned for the 120 spots they have open for their summer intensive, a rigorous dance program that is designed to support and advance dancers who have "something special"..in other words, they want to train the best dancers to become even better...well, amazingly, completely unexpected, she got accepted, and we are in shock!!! We are on a fixed income (very minimal income), so I was initially sad and resigned that she wouldn't be able to attend due to the cost...however, not one to let such an awesome opportunity pass us by, I found out about GoFundMe, an online site where you can raise funds for something that is important to you...I am incredibly blessed and happy, because we have raised 1/2 of what we asked for already, so there is a real possibility, if the Nashville Ballet Co will work with us on payments, that she can attend...I'm so excited for her (but very nervous too) to show all her naysayers that she IS good enough...she is the first girl with autism that they have accepted (as far as they know anyway) so this is new ground for the ballet company also...I am sorry if I seems like I am bragging, but I am so happy when a special needs child is able to beat the odds and be successful in what is usually a neuro-typical world.....so, my bragging is on behalf of ALL of our amazing children, yours, mine, all of them out there....thank you for letting me share....
I love y'all...I have rambled on long enough...oh, I am finally on facebook (had to do it so I could monitor my kids!!) so feel free to add me, its under Amanda Day and I live in Bowling Green, KY....
Hope everyone has a super day and an even better weekend,,,its gonna be cold here (after days of warm weather), but the rain has passed thank heavens...

So much for the road to recovery:

Thanks for the well-wishes for Mum - she is slowly feeling better - still no energy. My oldest son was diagnosed with a sinus infection on Sunday. Then yesterday around 2p, I came down with a blinding head ache - literally, as I cannot open my right eye (it feels like someone is poking an ice pick into it) and my left one does not work well. As my family has a history of brain aneurysms, I went to the doctor right away - I have a sinus infection in the cavity behind my eyes (a very different feel than in the mask at your nose). OK, dear Lord, we have had enough illness these past 3 1/2 weeks! We're done now, please! Worst thing is (besides the pain) - I cannot read while I lounge in bed. :( What a waste of time.

Wishing you all good health and a happy week.

Becky glad you mum is on medication and on the rod to recovery.

Dee I shall wish inventory over quickly for you. I do so understand.

Vicky glad Bryan's hand is not broken. A scare and maybe a wake up call to for him to be careful.

Back to work today and i feel about 90% better. It will take time so onwards and forwards I guess. No choice.

Have a great day everyone.

Georgia, glad to hear there was some legal success. I hope you and Becky are both starting to feel better. A lot of my students are getting this virus where they are coughing very much and have fevers! Hope it breaks soon. I'm keep up with VItamin C and Airborn so I don't go down too!

Becky sorry to hear about your mum. My mom has had bouts of pneumonia too and I hate it especially since she has asthma and COPD.

Had a scare last night. Bryan fell and hurt his hand. I thought it was broken but luckily it was not, just bruised. So all is well. Hope everyone has a nice Sunday.

Feel better Georgia!

My kids were sick off and on for almost 3 weeks. Awful. It is a time that I am thankful for homeschooling as they didn't miss any work.
I am so sorry I haven't been on much. Challenges as usual and super busy.

Hope all of you are doing well! I promise I will be on regularly now. I miss you!

Hugs, Cathy

Glad about the legal stuff, but sad about your illness, Georgia. I hope you feel better very soon!

Welcome from the sick ward! I relapsed - today is the first day in about 11 that I feel able to be up and getting stuff done. Both boys still have it (although to a lesser extent). DH is better. Now Mum has it - trying to get her to go to the doctor, as her cough sounds deeper than that of the rest of us. Ugh.

I have missed you all! Read the posts to catch up. Hugs to everyone!

Finally some good news from our legal case. All sorted and can turn a page.
Wish I could say the same for this virus.. Having the week off work as I am too sick to leave the house. I hate being incapacitated and unable to do anything. So boring.....but am doing as I am told like a good patient.

Thanks Vicky. This is dragging on for so long and nights are worse as I cannot breathe easily from congestion.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

That is grand Vicki. I am a parade type of girl too. Lifts the spirits etc.

Still not feeling well. This virus has flattened me and that is very unusual for me. I must be very run down.

Hugs to all.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

Vicky I feel for Bryan. Praying for good results. I have under active thyroid and once medication sorted it is ok.

Becky glad you are feeling better. I now have a throat infection. Sign of winter coming and I am not happy about it. Thankfully I have a couple of days off to recover.

Went out for dinner last night and it was lovely. Long time since we have been out.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Becky, hope you continue to feel better.

Vicky, just take things one day at a time. Hopefully you will figure out what caused Bryan's weight gain and be able to help him lose. Sometimes our kids grow outward before growing upward.

Georgia, had to smile at the older child telling you what looked good and didn't look good on you.

Cathy, we all have busy times in our lives. Just do what you need to do for your family and yourself. We will be here when you can check in again.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. busy still at work. have today off and was going to go shopping but then thought why if my workdays are spent in a store would i want to go shopping in a store on my day off....so decided to stay home and chill. LOL!!

Hi! Stuck in bed sick - got my youngest's cold. Ugh. Worst headache of my life last night. So glad I am a bit better now - at least I can get computer work done. Next comes the online grading.

I hope you all are feeling ok!

Becky I bet by now you have put a big dent in the grading. I hope you have fun setting up your craft table. Sounds like you will always be very busy.

Dee I hope the family dinner was fun. It does not happen often here but I always enjoy catching up.

Vicky follow your heart and also what your head tells you. It is a long and difficult journey but only you know deep down what you need. I have an under active thyroid and with the right dosage Bryan can lose weight. Fingers crossed for a solution. It also affects moods and energy levels.

Yesterday was such an exhausting day in a different way. My lovely neighbour took me along with the 2 little ones while we went shopping at a discount outlet. Spent just under $100 and got about $250 worth of clothes. Looking after the kids as we both tried clothes on and by the time I got home was ready for bed. It was quite funny as the the older one kept saying "no I don't like that on you or Yes I like that one"

Happy days everyone.

Hello everyone!
Sorry been MIA. As some of you who are on Facebook know I have been going through a heartbreak in my relationship. Things took a rough turn and we are both at fault. So taking one day at a time and just seeing where things go thought they were going to go nowhere but now, who knows.

Work has been good, hectic but good. Bryan's been having a few bumpy days at school hope its not the start of a trend. He also had a big weight gain so now we have to get his thyroid checked and I'm nervous about that! Its always something.

HUGS to all. Losing an hour for daylight savings made me tired but I will enjoy the extra sunlight. come on spring get here please.

I will be done with grading (more papers come in Sunday night) by the time I go to bed tonight! That means tomorrow (Sunday) is for yard work and organizing my scrapbooking materials into my new craft table, which was given to me last weekend by a friend who is a woodworker from Ireland - he got it from someone's shop and was going to toss it. I can't wait to fill it! :)

Good for you, going dancing! Sounds like a blast.

Becky hope your days are going well too.

Tina I feel for you and this negative person coming back. You just smile and focus on your happy aura. Remember when you let them upset you they have control. Just do what you do well and leave them to themselves.

Dee I hear you on too much to do and not enough hours. That seems to be my life at the moment. I am always going in early (for free) to catch myself up. I do feel better about being there on my own as so much is achieved.

Cathy, love the theme "March On". emoticon

Georgia, what a great advice to share. I need to let go of the negatives and concentrate on the positives as well.

Tina, it's hard to be positive when you have negative people around you. do hope things improve where you work.

Becky, hope all is well.

Everyone Else, how are you doing?

me, hanging in there. lots to do at work and not enough time to do it all. actually went in for a few hours this morning (about 5.5) to work on mods (that's where you change the labels and move products around in certain sections of your area). got mine done and then went to help a coworker with hers. full days for thursday and friday unless they don't want to pay overtime as the only day i've had off so far was saturday. (our workweek is sat thru fri)

Cathy it is so true that we need to March on. So many changes at work, one very negative person coming back and we cannot do anything about it. We have lost many people around us over the last few weeks there isn't time to be negative.
I am trying so hard to just look at the positives. I don't want to be remembered as a worrier, a negative person or a sad on.
You are all amazing and I love you all,
hugs, tina

Funny Cathy but that is my motto at the moment.
I am sorry you have been going through some tough times. I met a lovely lady 2 weeks ago who appears when I need spiritual and emotional advice. She has done all sorts of courses and is a very happy and successful woman.

She told me if you focus on positives only positives come your way. If you hold onto the negatives then that is all you will attract.
So in the last 2 weeks I have been doing and changing certain things around me to try and get only positives to come my way. Very difficult with our circumstances but I am trying to let go of hurtful things in my life. Praying it for you to Cathy.

Love you all dear friends.

Serenity

Hi Everyone!

I have had such a hard time just moving forward and functioning at full capacity lately due to some really hard events in my life. You have been wonderful and traveled this path with me. I am so thankful for your kindness, support and encouragement. I am so thankful that you accept me as I am, but also help to guide me as I need it. You are amazing!
When life is tough, sometimes we just have to "March On!"
That is the theme of this month. We are going to March On whether we are doing well or not, whether we eat the right thing or not, exercise or not, feel appreciated or not. You get the idea.

Let's March On! and see how we can do it better and better each day, with grace to yourself! Remember, it's a journey and not a perfect one, just a beautiful journey.

Hugs to all! Cathy
