It’s been forever

It’s been a really long time since I’ve written a blog. I don’t even remember the last time I sat down and wrote a blog or anything for that matter.  So I’m sitting here watching TV and need to just get some of my feelings out there.  I’m struggling with something right now. I found out a family member said something not nice behind my back to another family member. It’s bothering me a lot that someone that’s suppose to lift you up and support you no matter what and they didn’t. They actually tried to tear me down. It’s definitely a mind fuck and just plain hurts. I’m trying to brush it off. It’s not working I know opinions are like ass holes everybody has one. I have an amazing husband who loves me, I have 2 beautiful dogs, I have a good job that pays well enough and I have friends and co-workers who 100% love, support me and know I’d do anything for them. And it wasn’t all my family but still it hurts. So I hope that you all have a great day, and I’ll try and talk again soon.


Pain and Pharmacy

I’m sitting waiting for my turn at the pharmacy and remembered my promise to write more so here goes I’m going to tell you all about my medical problem and the journey through the last few months. It started in October I had this pain in my side and back, it hurt to take a deep breath. It was very sever and brought me to tears. When I went to my Doctor she thought it was back pain and treated it as such. All the medications I was giving didn’t do anything though the constant pain stopped.
It changed after that. I stopped the meds and didn’t have the pain for a while. I went on a dinner date with my husband and had a pretty fatty meal. That night the pain was the worse pain I ever felt. I went to the E.R. at 3 am. After running a couple of tests they sent me home and wanted me to set up a follow up appointment with my regular doctor. I didn’t get my normal doctor since they only gave me 3 days to see them. He was nice and I felt like he actually cared. He decide to order me a c.t. scan. The follow up appointment to the scan was my regular doctor and since it didn’t show anything she sent me home with nothing. The pain came back.
This time it was all week again.
I called the doctors again and sheduled an appointment with as my hubby and I called him, the doctor who actually does stuff and us trying to figure out what’s going on. He decided to send me to a specialist and I have am appointment with him soon. I’m so nervous but so excited to finally figure out what is wrong with me!! Fingers crossed y’all.

A long long break

It’s been almost a year since I’ve written a blog. I can’t apologize sometimes life gets in the way and honestly I kind of forgot for a while that I had a blog. With the move and getting our new home set up. Getting a new job and a new puppy takes up a lot of time. I’ve also been having some health problems that have been taking up all my time. So this is all just my excuse and hopefully my promise to start writing again. I miss it. I’ve talked about in the past how writing is therapeutic, getting all my feelings and thoughts out there.

Oh deaar…

It’s been so long since I’ve written a blog I actually forgot for a while there that I had one… 😦 OPPPS!! So to update from my last blog…6 months ago Seabee ball was awesome!!! We had a blast!! The move went well and I will definitely be posting a blog of tips on Do it yourself military moves. I know, I know, you’re all rolling your eyes right now because there are a MILLION and one blogs out there about military moves. HOWEVER, 99% are NOT about the do it yourself one they are about having the military movers move you and what to look out for. So mine will be different, and funny! 🙂 So we made it to Virginia Beach ok, and are settled in now. We have housing and are liking it for the most part, our pup LOVES having a backyard to play and run around in. I’m currently searching for a job which is always a pain and the MR. is working out and I will be joining him and we’ll loss a LOT of weight together. YEAH! Anyways, We’re getting our house together slowly, I’m in the middle of a DIY project/makeover that I will be sharing with you all when it’s finished and then hopefully starting my DIY projects so we can have an awesome/beautiful resort-ish looking guest bedroom. I’m very excited to finish the project I’m working on and to move onto something else. Of course I will be sharing pictures with you all. But for now this update is all you get for now. Hope you all have a great day! 🙂

Busy busy busy bee wife!

I’m so sorry I haven’t been on but I’ve just been sooo busy lately. We have 26 days before moving and that’s starting to drive me into a frenzy of packing and cleaning and generally just panicking and stressing. Everyday it takes a LOT of effort not to go into a panic attack, I just need to remember to just breath. Deep breaths, I’ve been trying to do yoga to calm my mind and body but who has the time or energy. Not mean!! Stress makes me tired!!! So with that I’m going to go take a nap! Again sorry I haven’t been on, will try to within the next few days, have to tell everybody about Seabee ball 🙂

Weather: Just because it’s warm…

I read a blog a few days ago and I want to expand and write about the same topic sort of. I want to write about weather and how some people can be snobby about it. There’s pretty bad weather going on right now in NY. Well pretty bad is putting it lightly, there’s travel restrictions and you’re really suppose to stay inside and prepare for it being bad for a while. I posted something sarcastic about it on my Facebook and got attacked with count your blessings and thank your lucky stars comment. What these people don’t know is just because I’m living in a place with warm weather doesn’t mean we’re not having bad weather either. Yeah it is about 80 outside right now and it feels awesome but that’s not good. Combined the 80 degree weather the lack of rain and high winds and you get the perfect weather for a fire. We’ve all seen them on tv the fires don’t stat small out here for long. They spread and FAST. Yet I should be counting my lucky stars for this, that I have to worry about my friends who were evacuated from their house last year because the fires were so close to them. So before you think you have the worse weather ever and nobody else has to worry about the weather think again. Everybody has something to worry about you’re not the only one.

Ok Thanks for reading, I was getting super annoyed and just needed to vent! Hope you all have a great day!!!!

Book Review: The Perfect Proposal By: Rhonda Nelson

I’ve decided to start blogging about the books I read. I’m very much a book-worm and if I can spend all day curled up in my reading chair with a good book I would. I get very distracted when I read, I eimmerse myself completely in a book and it gets very hard to get my attention away from one once I’ve started reading, just ask my husband he’ll tell you all about it. I always feel bad but I just cannot put books down, so to embrace my book nerd self my husband bought me a kindle. I know *gasp* I love the feeling of a book in my hand however I also really like the easiness of scrolling through a few titles and picking one on the kindle. If I find a great book on the kindle I will of course buy the actual book, plus the books on kindle are usually so much cheaper. But we can debate book vs kindle some other time.

So I read this book “The Perfect Proposal” By Rhonda Nelson a while ago. When I first read it I thought it was ok. I generally like a book that’s a little but longer.  This one only took me 3 hours tops. I just read it a second time and liked it quite a bit better. The title is super cute especially after you’ve actually read the book, I’m trying not to ruin anything here. I still think it could’ve been a bit longer, and it would have been nice to know a little more about the main characters. You get a general background but not too much. It’s not necessary to the story but still would have been nice. Overall it’s a nice easy read, for me it was a little hard because my kindle edition had a lot of typos in it. Most of which have been reported and hopefully will be fixed soon. This book is something I might read again, it was cute and I LOVE the eccentric business man character in it. I feel like there was a connection between the business man Les and the grandfather and wish it had been explained. Maybe Les owed Will (the grandfather) a favor and that’s why he did what he did. That’s what I assumed about the characters I just wish it would’ve been explained. Other than the 2 complaints and the typos  in the kindle edition it was a cute book. Not my all time favorite but I would read it again in the future. After all I’m a sucker for a cute love story, especially when it’s not always the perfect situation for love. Hope this review was helpful and let me know if this is something I should give up or continue to do.

Peace & Love,

~Mrs. C
