The Shining

Who all has seen that movie? Yes, it is a classic, in my opinion, and when I first saw it, was scared to death. Those little twin girls gave me the creeps big time!!!

With that movie in your mind now think about how things have been here at the hizzouse for a while. I’m an only child, was not with someone constantly and played by myself most of the time. Fast forward to December of 2014, my husband blows a disk out and is home, in bed, all day and night. It is now the end of February and although he’s getting out more and is up and mobile again, he’s been here most all the time. With me. Here. In this house. Together. And it’s snowed. Endlessly it seems.

It’s nothing against HIM really, it would be that way with anyone, it was that way a bit when papa was here. I was in “nurse mode” 24/7 and that’s hard for me because I really am more introverted than people realize.

Now, before you start calling some psych wards, I’m fine and no one was harmed during the writing of this blog. It’s gotten much better the last few days, but seriously, I was getting so ill and snappy and grumpy (more than usual) and I really couldn’t put my finger on the reason. Once I made myself think about what all was going on, it clicked. Cabin fever along with not getting my “me time” was wearing on me. That may sound selfish, but I really believe all people need that. Ask any new mother who will be honest with you, sometimes you just need a break from having someone being solely reliable on you.

Now, go play in this unexpected snow we are having!! 😀

Sunday Ramblings

It’s a windy cold day, and I dread going out in it, but so excited to go to church! I think Robert is going to try to go to. He had his surgery Tuesday afternoon. When I got back to recovery to see him he said his pain was a POINT 5…he’s one tough cookie. He took something that night for pain mainly so he could sleep good (didn’t work lol) and then the next day when we were leaving the hospital he took something for the ride home in case it started hurting with him sitting up for 45 minutes. (He had been lying in the backseat when he went somewhere. That is all the medicine he has taken and is doing phenomenally!! We praise God for answering prayers. He will be going back to work in six weeks.

I’m working hard on the boudoir business. I had some awesome brochures made up and I’m going to go soon to some local salons to put some out. I’ve also revamped my price list and tried to make this more affordable for every woman that wants to do it, while still helping to compensate for my time and running my family off while having sessions. (And having to clean my house before them lol).

I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine’s Day, I got to spend it with my Lovie
who felt good enough to go eat with some friends, that made my heart happy!! My son got to go to a dance Friday night…he looked so handsome!! I can’t believe how fast he’s grown and it makes me proud and sad at the same time. He’s such a good kid and I’m so blessed to be his mama, I just hope he knows he will always be my baby though!!

Have a wonderful day folks, be blessed!!

Sunday morning ramblings

I hardly ever sleep in anymore…since Colby came along, I don’t think I’ve done that but maybe five times. I used to be able to sleep past lunch any day, no more. I like it better being a morning person, that’s when I’m the most productive and can sit in peace for a little bit while having my coffee and catching up on world events (ie. Facebook lol).

A few of my good friends and I got to have a ladies dinner out last night. It was so nice and fun! Women need to have their own time once in a while and to have a break. I’m thankful for the few that came and hopefully we can make it a regular occurrence and more of my friends will be able to come next time, and their friends will come and it will just grow and grow!

We have a busy day planned…in a little while we are trading some of our stuff to get someone else’s stuff…in that deal I get a dining room table with six chairs that I have always wanted…I’m so excited! Then I’m working 10-2, I still love my job and get to do that from home in my comfy clothes. Then I get to have a massage at 3, my wonderful husband got me gift certificates for Christmas for 10 one hour sessions with the most phenomenal massage therapist I’ve ever been too, plus she’s my good friend :-). Finally, it’s Super Bowl Sunday so we will be watching the commercials lol!!

Tomorrow is the visit with the surgeon, I’m so ready to get a plan with how to fix my Lovie! He has had some improvements over the last few days. Bladder issues are slowly diminishing and returning to normal, and his pain is lessening and he’s not needing as much medicine. So that’s encouraging, but at the same time, it’s a slow process and I’m not sure just how long it would take to get him back to absolute normal without any surgical intervention. We shall see what the surgeon says and keep praying!!!

I hope all of you have an awesome day and get to do something fun! Thanks for reading ☺️.
