Life Choices

Dear Bunnies,

I've realized that I've spent a lot of my time doing things to prove to others I could, or to try desperately to be who society expected or wanted me to be. I think its time to start working on being who *I* want to be, the world be damned.

That being said my littlest grandson has very bad ecxema and we are now learning how to help him through it. He's too little to understand not to scratch or tell us when something hurts so we're having to be really attentive. I've decided to not only make soaps (because the dermatologist wants us to bath him in diluted bleach water) but I plan to learn to make body butters full of good for you emolliants  to help his skin improve.

Gonna be a very interesting year I think!

Also making some small papercrafts. I'm eager to do a lot of learning this year! ^-^

Education...

So I'm taking a math class again. simple math according to most people I know. However, in all honesty, I'm bad at math. Really, reallly bad. So I'm doing pre-algebra, which for most kids these days starts either in later elementary classes or first year middle school at the latest usually. When I was in school proper the first time we didn't even need to be in pre-algebra until high school.  But the times, they are a changing, eh?

Funny Story about math hereCollapse )

Happy New Year to Everyone...

And other stuff!

Happy new year friends!

A lot has been going on these last few weeks and I'm really happy with some of my progress. I've lost weight, dropped a pant size, continued my food journey successfully, and found out a lot about myself I really wasn't sure of before. 

I'm looking forward to a new year. 

Also, I'm going to learn to make soap, because I've stopped using commercial shampoos.

Little Update just for fun...

Finally got to my doctor after starting my new eating lifestyle.. down 6lbs in about a month and my A1C is down to a much more respectable 7.3 from 10.4 when we started. I need it below 6.5, so I figure its going to get there..

Also learned another valuable lesson. I thought eating the fries and cheese was bad? I had a burger WITH bun the other day and ended up with a raging tummy ache, migraine and fever.. so, no more buns for me. lol or pretzels. I'm still trying to rebalance from that..

However, that day I ate it was my birthday and I got to go to the Zoo for free and spend time with my son and his wife and kids plus my bestie, her hunny and their two littles who aren't so little any longer. it was pretty fun but SO COLD. Luckily it wasn't raining. I think the best part of the whole trip was when my grandson Bee got to see a real life alligator. He was very excited!

And since I believe I've shared at least one picture of all the rest of my littles, here is the most recent of them.. a little girl named Levy..

Much has happened lately.. some good, some bad, some just.. *lesigh*...

Click here for my super long explanation of how my pants are now falling off! :DCollapse )

New Journeys

So I've grown bored of being bored. lol

I'm starting to learn how to use the sewing machine that my hunny has. I've only made napkins so far but I'm hoping to get super good at those :D

Then I'll try making other things that are easy.. table runners, maybe curtains. And maybe scarves and stuff too.. I'm not sure what though.

Also my sister and I made cookies. We call them Italian Wedding cookies because that was what the recipe called them, however, it seems they are also known by at least three other names as well :) They are tiny and addictive. We thought we'd make extra because there are  never enough cookies and it was more than my mixer could do easily. In the end it made 156 two bite cookies that are so delicious!

So begins my new journey that doesn't directly relate to my health journey. That is another story altogether, but one that is going to be an interesting journey if nothing else.

Peace and light!
Me

I'm broken

Probably for good.. fibromyalgia and uncontrolled type ll diabetes..I'm on medication and monitoring my blood sugar and trying to be very mindful of my foods and everything, but something down deep feels so broken. I hope I can figure it all out. I know I didn't get this way overnight and it won't be fixed that fast either, but this journey seems like its going to take forever and doesn't seem like there is a safe place anywhere out there.. hopefully I start making sense of all of this soon.. Its driving me completely bonkers lol

Also, the puppy broke but the nice people at the emergency vet are fixing him up right nicely. :)

Busy doing nothing

I have a lot of space in my yard. Not good for much because its oddly shaped but with the right planning could be a great space. Thats why I'm planning on putting plants in pots out there lol

I currently have a variety pack of Kale for my bunny-boo, and two 4" sugar peas that have three plants each I believe. I have other stuff coming back from last year which is nice and a TON of new seeds to try. I'm excited though not really sure how to get started. I know the usual plant seeds yaddayadda but there is a lot else to be done as well.

Also trying to help my sister get some of her stuff cleaned up as well and its going slow, but I've got new gloves and though its not always the best option, we've opted to pull up the roses that were here before they moved in. They have been suffering with a horrible bout of black spot that we've not been able to get rid of, but barely been able to improve, so they've got to just go. We are planting younger, newer, healthier bushes. My sister who loves roses is sad to see the sick ones go but happy to get her new bushes.

I've also discovered a non spicy jalapeno, which I am eager to put to the test later this year in some salsa.

All in all I'm very excited about getting a new garden up and running! I'm even planting flowers this year, including both edible and just decorative sunflowers that are red, and lemon-limey yellow respectively!

Heres to a super good planting year! :)

What are you guys up to? :)

And we grow!

My new baby granddaughter was born on the 31st of January.. 5weeks early. She's doing great though and was able to come home with her mommy on time. Levy is the new favorite for her brother and older sisters and is well loved by all. She's a tiny little angel of a doll and she makes number 8 for me!  Four boys and Four girls ^-^

Just wondering now....

I'm not sure what to do with my journal any more lol

I know I want to keep it, if nothing else for the sake of having this safe space for things, but I am not sure what exactly to do with it.

Ramble like before? Post about how I can't seem to manage making crocheted hats? Talk about the crazy antics of my grandkids or my cats? Maybe talk about Ki and my neice Lily and how they are doing in their Tae Kwon Do journey?

I feel lost but inspired to do something more...

For any of you that manage to notice and read this, have you ever come to that point? If so, what did you do with the feeling/need? :)

*Yes Ms. Shisa, I know I can always take your suggesting! I even considered doing it some years ago and came up with a pen name and everything! :D*

Toodles my lovelies!
