School is Back in Session Today.....

Normally we take the whole month of December off.  But, since I was having some health issues we kind of took off a little earlier this year.  We started relaxing a bit before Thanksgiving and our Family was honestly better off for doing that.  I've learned over the years that nobody learns a thing if we are all stressed and irritable.  It's better to do what your capable of maintaining instead of what you highly expect from yourself and others. 
So, we started back today slowly.  We started off with our Favorite Breakfast....Bagel Egg, Sausage & Cheese sandwiches and slowly dove into School Work.  Mahala ran to her room to work on Biology while Kaden and I sailed through our day downstairs, starting with Math. 


Christmas Magic

Christmas is so magical to me...it's a time of year where the sights, sounds and smells take me right back to my childhood.  I'm taken back to before my parents died, before foster care and before the Christmas days that were just regular days.
Every year I try to channel my Mom and decorate and plan activities that my Kiddos will remember forever and ever.  I know one day they will pause during the hustle and bustle when they have families and remember sweet moments of their childhood Christmases. 


Need More Meds!

Since I was still sick and coughing they couldn't put me under for surgery.  Kind of thankful that they could at least give me some local anesthetics and at least get the huge fibroid our fairly quickly.  Afterwards though the Doctor told me I have several smaller ones still there, he just couldn't stay in there any longer due to the fact that I would FEEL everything and they couldn't give me anymore local meds.  But, at least the Biggest one is out.  At least I don't pee every 5-6 minutes now.  Seriously before they wheeled me into surgery I had went to the bathroom 6 times.  That was just within the hour long wait to actually have the procedure done.  I just know the Nurse must have wanted to tie me down to the bed with my IV tube. :)  But, she was sweet and kind to me and I was careful to be just as kind and sweet to her.
I go back next month to plan what happens next, I can't wait to be done.  Next time hopefully I will be well enough to be put under and the whole thing get taken care of.  Praying that's done and I'm healed before we all take sabbatical this Summer. :)


Giving It All To Jesus Feels Good!

Wow, what a crazy past few weeks we have had.  I have been ultra Blessed these past few years and have had fairly good health....thank you Jesus!  Well, the time has come to rally the sick wagons, cause Momma's falling apart.  Well, actually I did feel that way...but I did something different this time.  I just gave it to God.  I told him, I'm no good with this.  If I keep it I will worry, google stuff until carpel tunnel sets in and just make myself so miserable that maybe I would prefer I short death.
