What’s Happening

This is going to be a random post on what’s going on in our world.

Hubby is still in love with farming.  It’s planting season right now and they are very busy.  They have already planted corn and cotton.  I believe they are planting peanuts right now. We get to see him maybe 30 minutes a day, but I know (or hope) this will go in cycles.  On a side note, he has developed an addiction to popcorn.  I guess there could be worse things to be addicted to.  Sunday, the kids and L asks me to go get them movie popcorn.  I told them we had some up in the cabinet, but that’s not what they meant.  You should have seen the look on the faces at the movie theater when I rolled up not purchasing a movie ticket, but only popcorn.

Kids are doing fantastic.

H is becoming so animated it cracks me up.  His facial expressions are priceless.  He loves going to daycare now and enjoys digging in the dirt on the playground.  I think he has finally stopped eating it.   He is in to wearing boots instead of his tennis shoes.  Wants to be like dad.  He tells everyone he meets now “My dad drives a tractor annnnnnd a truck.”

T is almost done with 3rd grade.  She is growing up so fast!  This week is Pass testing.  Early to bed and a big breakfast this week.  I think I am going to be broke after this report card.  Her progress report was awesome, which means if it stays that way, she will be coming to me, her grandma, and uncle for cash.  Ha!  She is looking forward to spending the summer at the YMCA and also going back to camp for a week up in the mountains.

Our garden is rocking.  I’ll post some pictures later today.  I counted yesterday and we have 15 tomatoes growing, 4 zucchini, and 5 squash.  The cucumbers and cantaloupe have already put out their feelers and now have blooms.  Ya’ll this is a huge accomplishment.  For the past 3 years, I couldn’t get anything to grow.  I think, finally, I have found the right mix!  Pray now that bugs and disease do not attack.  I’ll just cry.

I think I have finally found what works for me for losing weight.  It’s too early to 100% tell, but I am very optimistic.   If you look below, you will see a weight loss ticker.  When I use to see these on people’s signatures or on their blogs, I thought they were obsessed.   Not anymore, I think it’s smart.  I love myfitnesspal.com.  Love it!  I can log on and log my daily food and exercise and in return the site will provide you with not only your calorie intake, but all nutrition.  For example, protein, vitamin C, carbs, and etc. You can also friend people….motivational support.  I have found myself logging in and chatting with weight loss buddies, instead of spending lots of time on Facebook.  Also, what’s neat is you can log in from your phone, iPad, or computer.  It’s very versatile.  When I have the money, I’m going to get a FitBit.  A lady in one of my cancer support groups has one and says it really helps show how active you are or aren’t.

Still hanging in there with the green juice and wheat grass shots every day!  Starting to get use to it.  Takes a bit to adjust your taste.  I had a massive headache yesterday and I know it’s from caffeine and sugar withdrawal.  Scary to think how addictive that junk is.

Had a great time this past weekend shopping at high-end consignments shops with my sister.  Seriously, 200 dollar jackets for like 20 bucks and some still had the tags on them!  I have lots of brand name stuff and paid Walmart prices! ha!  Sister opened my eyes on how she keeps such a cute wardrobe and doesn’t break the bank.

Loved seeing my brother and his wife also on Saturday.  We ate Mexican..Yummy!  However, I will never order spinach quesadillas again. I think they put a pound of spinach on them and it was slimy.  Really enjoyed hearing all about their house building plans.

I received my blood work results.  All is good.  Still no evidence of cancer and other numbers are looking good.  Well, besides my Vitamin D. This is starting to frustrate me.  I am taking 50k units and I am still extremely deficient.  I am researching on what could be causing this malabsorption.  I have got to figure it out because now with suppression therapy my risk of osteoporosis and heart problems is higher.

Well, it’s 5:30 am and time for me to go get everyone ready for the day.  Hope ya’ll have a blessed one!
