Setting at the pharmacy

Waiting for my prescriptions to get filled. Found out last week I am a diabetic, so there has to be some (if not a lot) of eating habits that has to change in my house. The first thing that went through my head was oh great all I need right now health wise. Now I think 'Well you wouldn't be in this prediction if you took better care of yourself now would you.' I know it runs in my family late in life diabetes but still I should have taken better care of myself and now I am worried about my daughter's health she doesn't eat healthy either. Her dad has diabetes also so there really has to be a change in eating habits for sure in our household.

Good Morning

I haven't been feeling to good since I gotten sick almost 2 wks ago. Oh I don't like feeling bad at all. I have been wondering though if maybe it is my nerves are making me sick now since my First Doctor visit is coming up for the Gastric bypass that I am wanting done. The first appointment is Feb 11th and I am kind of nervous. Then I think this is just the first visit what do I have to be nervous about right, well I am because this is a big decision for me and a big life change as well. I still have to do more research mainly for healthier recipes. I know there will be a lot of stuff I won't like and the stuff I do like I think I will make a recipe book for myself to refer back to when I need to, because I know that with trying different foods to see what my taste buds would like and handle will be a challenge to keep it all in my head, and my brain only holds so much at the moment, lol. If I don't write it down I forget about it anymore.
Well I got to get my kids off to school, will take pictures of some stuff I had gotten the other day and post them sometime today or tomorrow.

Here it is 5 AM

and still awake, man am I tired. The bug is going around in my house starting with my Daughter, then it hit me Friday and Saturday and still feeling it. Danny didn't help me out much with bugging me all the time and letting his nieces and brother constantly coming into our room watching TV, playing on the computer in our room and then letting the kids be loud the whole time I had a fever and in bed trying to get some rest, oh did I want to knock him up side the head, but felt to weak to do it and am still feeling the aches from being sick. (Why can't we bounce back like kids do?) Well anyways what topped it all off was when he said "I don't like it when you are sick" Boy did that top it all off (I have a short fuse at the best of times) I told him "Why because that I can't take care of you while you become sick" I even told him I didn't understand why he even cared if I was sick or not because he won't get up out of bed and then wake kids up so they can get ready and then take them to school he stays in bed until it is time to go get them and then he will ride with me and if he gets up sooner then that is when he wants to go have breakfast. I swear MEN are BIG BABIES when they are sick. Well anyways back to the reason I have been up is because not only does Danny have it (wish I had an air horn about now LOL) but our Son Kodie who is 7yrs old is sick he moaned and groaned all night between him and my coughing fits I could not get any sleep and I guess I will have to call off my Dr's appointment this morning and get another date because with Danny being sick there is no way he would be able to take care of Kodie. Go figure it would happen this way oh well there is always a bright side of things and right know I don't see it lol, hopefully soon though.

I know I sound like a whine baby but there has been a time or two I had to call my ex-mother inlaw to help me take care of the kids because I was so sick, (of course he can't cook so he is no help in that department either), now that is sad very, very sad if you ask me.

Feeling Under

the weather here. Picked up the kids from school yesterday and she was running 100.1 temp, poor baby. She wouldn't take no medicine for she was afraid that the medicine would not stay down. So I gave her a cool rag for her head and the fever spiked to 101.1 for about one hour and then started going down. This morning she doesn't have the fever but is aching a little all over still. The darn 24 hr flu bug stinks if you ask me, now I have the cough and oh man do I not like that as well. I get over heated and I start coughing and can't seem to stop until I can cool down. Oh well life goes on no matter if you are sick or not. This is the first time Dina has been sick all year though, everyone else has gotten sick in the house but her. Really she hasn't been sick with a cold or flu for 2 yrs just everyone else in the house has. It amazed me that last year when Kodie got sick for a week and then after he got to feeling better I got sick for a week and the Danny was sick for a week after me that Dina did not get sick at all. I was so jealous of her for not getting sick (even though I was happy that she didn't), I was like what the heck I want on her side of the barrier I don't want to be sick, lol.

Well that is it for right now, will try to post something later.

Got those pictures taken and wanting to share with you what I made at Cathy's Stampin' Up workshop this past Friday. I had fun getting away from the house for a few hours at least and doing something I like also. A lip balm purse, a gift box, a hand sanitizer box holder and a post-it note holder. (This post-it note holder looks a whole lot better then the first one I made lol.)

Here is what my son Kodie found on our steps before I had to get ready to leave for the workshop that evening. I ordered this the day before and was so surprised to see that it was delivered so fast. Only one thing was on back order and that was the Gypsy Screen Protectors.

(Not photo here is the 12x12 Cricut Cutting Mats and the Gypsy Vehicle Power Supply cord and of course the screen protectors)

These are 3 of the Cartridges that Danny had gotten me as well can not wait to use these as well.
There is a lot more of the Cricut Lites I want and it seems I will have to go searching because I can not seem to ever find them all at the same Wal-Mart.
Well I am off to see what I can learn about the Gypsy.

My stuff came in yesterday evening, and boy was that fast I did a 3 day shipping and figured the earliest would be maybe Tuesday but I got it the next day wow Custom Crops are awesome with getting their products shipped to their costumers in a timely fashion. I have ordered from them 2 or 3 times and I am always pleased with their products and when they are shipped out.

Went to that Stampin' up workshop last night and had fun, just getting out and doing something I want to do for a change is so much fun I hope to be able to do it again soon.

I will post the pictures of my goodies I got from Custom Crops and what I made last night a little later today got an appointment this morning.

Oh I can't wait

I ordered me my Gypsy today for $100 over at Custom Crops. They are having a sell until Jan. 14th midnight so I could not pass it up. Got some other things as well while they were on sell. Cannot wait for them to get here.

Going to a Stampin' up workshop tomorrow, haven't been to one in a long time and really need to get out of the house and thought that maybe this would do me some good. I don't get out much other to go grocery shopping or shopping for the kids here of late really need some me time, away from the 2 younger kids and the big kid (which is my old man LOL). So maybe a couple hours doing something I like will do me some good.

Well that is it for the night hope to be able to post something tomorrow night.

Trying to figure out

the School system here. Just don't understand what the school official who decides on if there should be a snow day or not. Yesterday in the early morning snow moved in and we got a few inches, side roads were slick, I slid through a stop sign (which is the first time since I was a kid just learning to drive) thank goodness no one was coming. There was no cancellations here in Franklin county. Which is OK but right before Christmas break they canceled school and the roads were clear no slick spots that I could find, that week was my busiest week had a lot of Dr. appointments, my kids and myself, so I was out on side roads and the main roads a lot that week. Well what I am trying to get at is that what is going through their heads when deciding if there should be school and when there shouldn't when it snows. Some one said it is because it isn't a Monday or a Friday which I'm starting to agree with that person because it was a Monday and a Thursday and Friday right before Christmas break when they called off school for bad road conditions and the roads were clean compared to what they were yesterday and today.

Paper Angels

Last month I tried this class out and it was fun, they had a free class on paper angels for December and I took a picture of just 1 angel I did with my phone but I was planning on taking more pictures with my camera, but being a procrastinator as I am most of the times I was way behind on getting my Christmas Gifts all done that I didn't have time to get the pictures of them all in a group for my keep sake I am not for sure how many I made now, lol.

Well this month CDAC is have a "Heart Pocket Free Class" I can't wait to try this one as well.

Getting Back in the Swing

of getting up early in mornings. I have my alarm clock set fast so I can hit the snooze button but I don't very often so I am up at 4:35 most mornings when there is school, I have to have my coffee before waking my kids up for school and have some alone time in the mornings, wonder if I am the only one that does this , more then likely not but it sure feels like it at times lol. I get the kids up at 6:25 to get ready for school. Right now I feel like going back to bed but can't, darn. Maybe I can take a nap later today who knows. Well I hope that everyone has a wonderful day today.

It's Back To School

for my kids. They had a nice long vacation I don't know if they are ready to go though we will have to wait and see this morning when it is time to wake them up. I hope they are because I really don't want the yelling they like to do first thing in the morning if they don't want to go, lol. Oh well yelling or not it is time to get back on track.

Learn to Love

That is what we are learning in Sunday school today, this is what I have been trying to teach my kids. They are not allowed to use that "H" word in my house, they can use I dislike something or I don't like that. I am a firm believer that the only way to stop "hate" is at the home front, so I try my best to do this. Its not easy but I try. I tell them that it is best to stay away from someone that you cannot get along with then hang around them even if you have friends that like that person and to never talk bad about that person even if that person talks bad about you. My Daughter has some friends that are also friends with this other girl, this other girl does not like Dina (my Daughter) one bit, has threaten to punch Dina in the face has said nasty things about Dina and they have had a few arguments that the girl got moved out of Dina's class because the girl always starts the arguments with Dina. But as far as I know and from what I am told by her teachers Dina does not make her friends choose who they should hang out with just because them two can not get along. And I am so proud of Dina for this and also for sticking up for herself this year, she has been bullied all through school and for once Dina isn't backing down from the bullies. This is the first year that I have had to go to school because Dina won't or hasn't backed down. Dina is in the 8th grade and I have been going to her school at least 6 to 12 times a school year to get the bulling to stop, but it seems that the school does not care, last year my daughter had her life threaten, a boy threatened to slit her throat and they did not do anything about it and I think that was Dina's last straw with the bullies. She doesn't fight them but she doesn't back down now more either so far this year it has just been that one girl that has been bulling her. The most funny thing about it is they use to be friends, don't know what went wrong there, have my ideas but still that is only ideas. Well anyways Dina still likes her but stays away from her but stays away because she doesn't want to fight.
