Wow, I know its been awhile since last I wrote about myself but alas I am

Lets see, for starters my Fibromyalgia has been in full swing and has put me down terribly. Since I've been paying more attention to what my body tells me Ive been watching for the signs and amazing what you find out. 

So, on Christmas eve I made dinner for my brother and my dad and was on my feet all day and I knew just knew that the next day I was going to be in bed all day because thats what happens to a person with Fibro and what I believe to be as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Well, guess what sure enough on the one day that I would have rather not been in bed all day...whamm, I could feel it coming on the night before after everyone left and helped do the dishes. My back started spasming. So I said enough was enough and I had to lay down.

Later that night I layed down and I started getting a siring pain in my eye sight quick bursts of it and my legs started to ache. It was horrible and that was when I knew Christmas day was going to be either a battle stay awake or I was just going to give in to the Fibro and stay in bed and the girls let me do just that. J took care of D and I was able to stay in bed. I felt like the worst mother on earth but there was nothing I could do about it. Was able to get breakfast out for them but other than that I was in bed. I see the new
Rheumatologist on the 7th of January and hopefully with Gods willing this one will actually do something for me to help me get though life especially when Fibro decides to flair up. 

Since Christmas eve I can honestly say it hasn't gotten any easier, the pain in my back has gotten much worse and finally a couple days ago I finally went into the er cause I just couldn't handle it anymore. My back actually was swollen and I finally went in. I was told that I have Kidney stones and that I have to sort out my pee for the urologist. Great huh!!! I'm sorry so far it hasn't gone too well and all I have found in my pee is sand like stuff and I cant get it in the little container they want me to so I can take it in. Great is what I think. So on Wensday I am to make an appointment for the urologist. 

Well, despite my short blog I am having a hard time getting this one out. I apologize but my wrists hurts just typing but I will be back when I can get another one out. My new years resolution is to blog on Monday, Wensday, and Friday and then the occasional Sunday. So alas I've got a plan!!! haha...

Later Taterz~~
Luv Me~~~

Hey Ya'll!! Thought I would take a stab at this one, since I don't have cable, I am doing the Netflix kind of cable. Its actually nicer than cable in the sense that there is no commercials and you don't get cut off when it is getting to the good So, I have been out of the loop on the whole commercial thing but there is that nice thing they call google, so I googled "What are the worst commercials on Television right now?" and it brought up several different choices.

Well, basically the choices for commercials were the same as they were when I did have cable 6 months ago and I have to say there are two commercials that I absolutely can not stand and I am sure there has to be a few of you out there some where that agree with me....

The first one is the commercial for the Trojan Vibrator, but this one is for the Trojan Shower Gift, where they say Really blows your hair back, Tri-phoria, it has 5 speeds, 3 pulse patters and 3 interchangeable tips...

This one really drives me nuts because when I remember having cable they would show they other commercials for the other Trojan products at all times of the day and I must say they weren't discreet about the commercials to say the least and the problem is my girls. They watch television and they don't need by any means to be seeing commercials like this especially my oldest who just turned 13 and is very mature for her age and very impressionable and we will just say knows more than she should...right she should happen to read this...she knows what I

So I guess I could rattle of a few others but this by far gets me going on commercials they have out there..but by far I am so liking Netflix for so many reason that I don't think I would ever go back to cable except that with cable you do current showings of certain things and somethings I do miss, sometimes I like to catch the news or a football game or even a Nascar Race, and there are a couple shows that I liked to watch on t.v. that Netflix doesn't offer, but overall, Netflix is so worth the money I am actually saving each month.

Hey Ya'll...Good evening. Well, getting ready to start my next round of Christmas cookies...

  • Cherry-Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Brownie Cookies
  • Cut out Sugar Cookies
  • Fantasy Fudge...
  • More Spritz Cookies...Those go way too
  • Peanut Butter Cookies- Both Crunchy and Reg. ones.
This is going to be round 3 for cookies, the first 2 rounds I did by hand, and it was a pain in the butt. My hands are so sore its not even funny. I have already made:
  • Spritz Cookies
  • Snickers Cookies
  • Andes Candies Cookies
  • Carrot Cake Cookies
Let me tell ya, I have learned some very important lessons just by making those few types of cookies and I hope these help others too...
  • Parchment paper is a very important thing to have in the kitchen when making cookies or anything when you make something that will stick and you have to stack things.
  • An Electric mixer is a MUST when making
  • If you make stuffed cookies, just roll a ball and use a teaspoon and make a dimple in the cookie instead of stuffing the cookie, its faster and easier that way. lol
  • Triple or 4x's batch of spritz cookies is what you will end up making by the end of the are way too little and way too good and go way too fast, plus dad likes them way too much)
The last one is a bullet mainly for me to keep in explain that one a little, growing up, thinking back as far as I can remember, my mom each and every year would make Christmas cookies and Spritz cookies was her main cookie that she would make and it was one if not my dads favorite cookie. So as it was my mom would make like dozens and dozens of all kinds of cookies and deliver them to several different households all over the neighborhood on Christmas Day. It took me many years after she passed on to continue with the family tradition but I could never come close to being as great as my mom but I try to do my best. When she would make spritz cookies, she would actually dye some of the dough green and red for Christmas trees and other things. I don't have the patience to go that far but I do my best with everything else.

As I posted before about my new business venture, Its a slow go but I am still very much wanting to get it going...I just put it to the side while making cookies and my homework for right now. I  am trying to figure out how to juggle all these things at one time. Right now cookies are important at night. If you do read this blog and do want to check out ViSalus, Please do...

So, I have started a new business venture but it is slow to get going partly because I have several things going on in my personal life. I am trying to get everything balanced between doctors appointments for myself and the kids and now this new class I have started is really got my attention so I am really trying my best not to get stressed out. I know shortly in time it will all balance out. I just have to have faith it will all work itself out. 

How does one deal with an issue that is out of their control but is bothers them so much. How do you deal with something so upsetting that when someone is friends with someone but agrees to help them out. Okay that is one thing but when it is something that is so personal that is should be discussed with the other person. I know its rather confusing but I must be discreet. This involves a couple and another person and someone in the couple is helping out a friend but the other person in the couple feels that this favor is a little too personal and should have been discussed with them first before agreeing to help them out. Either way it doesn't matter because its pretty much a no win situation, they are going to do it regardless. Its just frustrating. Its frustrating because If I were to bring it up, it would just cause a fight and I would get no where so, I just suck it up and be done, So I here to vent hoping this helps to get it out of my system. 

Its hard dealing with life and lately my pain has come back with a vengeance and trying to deal with it, just has left me without motivation. I have been told that I suck as a mom and I need to quit whatever my deal is a step back up. I have been lazy and unmotivated for the last week or two and sleeping alot again, I tried to explain that my sickness/illness goes in spurts and my pain doesn't help. No one understands how it is and that's the hard part and no one wants to understand. The hardest part is the pain...I cant do alot of things and it sucks but again, there's times they say they understand but then it gets thrown back in my face...Then I'm told to tell them when I'm in pain but again im told when I do say about my pain that I am using it as a crutch or an I give up and I don't talk about my pain and I keep it to myself...but I am so sick of holding it in...I am about to explode...I cry at night from the pain. I cry because I cant do things like I used to...I cry cause I have no interest in the things i used to.....Maybe my meds need to be tweaked or something, but something needs to change cause I cant live life like this anymore...I don't have an interest for life like I use too,

Well, enough babbling for tonight...

Well, Yes I know its been awhile since last I posted or blogged or just simply left a note here and there but I've a busy gal!! Yep me...busy...New endeavors getting underway....Well, I have decided to turn this into a new mind frame...Yep the blog has been shifted not only into a New Me blog, but a very new and improved or getting there blog...Okay so it is kind of confusing but you will catch on soon enough....

I have started a new business...Yes, me...So would anyone like to hear more about it. I am actually as we speak losing weight and getting paid for it. Well, there is also another very interesting part of it, I want anyone who reads this to learn how to do it as well. It is filled with yummy things and great advances. The best part, everyone is doing it...Well, okay so a lot of people are doing it...I just need to get the word out around here for people to do it from me!!!! Come on people, don't you want to feel healthy and revived? Then check me out at my Facebook page... or Its the 90 day challenge...come on what better way to ring in the new year than a new body, a new mind set and some cash in your pocket...Doesn't that all sound awesome...It did for me and when I sat down and really looked into this, it hit me hard and it felt real to me. Something I could talk about and do at the same time and LOVE doing at the same time....Come on now, what about ya'll.....

Other than that...I am doing great. Getting ready for my new class, math110. Rather nervous but confident I am going to get through the material not sure how well but I have a new attitude and a new outlook on life and a whole new energy on what is important and what...ya know what really isn't all that important anymore...It is crazy how one thing can make you sit down and evaluate the things you have in your life and the things going on in your life.

Later taterz,
