Rain Rain, please go away and take my stomach pain with you!

Wow! We have had like 7 days of straight rain..i actually love the rain but at this point it is a total downer..i miss the sun..

I'm still not feeling well.. However my business is so great because if I need to rest or take a break, I can! I have come to appreciate it more and more since I have been sick...

Sometimes when something "not so good" happens in your life, you really see a more clearer picture of yourself and what you really want to accomplish. I have been sick for like over 6 weeks now and they still can't figure out my problem..I know I can't be the only one in the world who has had a problem that doctors can't figure out but it really makes me empathize with those who've gone through this..it's very frustrating..my pain isn't constant so i do get relief but since I can't eat hardly at all, it has effected my energy level. I no longer can work out which was my hobby. I loved it because it was a stress relief for me but now I don't know if I could get through 10 minutes...anyway..I don't want to complain...

I will feel better soon...it's just a matter of time..

Still Staying Laser Focused on Business during tough times

I must say that the last 4 weeks have been very tough for me. I haven't been feeling well and it's been so hard to keep working.

My symptoms are abdominal pain and discomfort alongside of back pain..I've had a few tests such as gallbladder and endoscopy and still no answers yet BUT believe it or not I'm still working.

Working from home allows me to rest, take breaks and when the pain pill kicks in, I can get back to work..How many jobs out there could offer me that? "Excuse me boss but would you mind if I laid down for a little while, I don't feel well"
Yeah right! That wouldn't happen!

I have NEVER been more grateful for this business and throughout all this I'm still moving forward AND getting a paycheck!

Thank you Ameriplan! I appreciate you so much!

Illness is interfering with my work

Just this past week I have been suffering with bad abdominal pain to the point where I am keeled over...it's dehabiliting...but the strange thing is it passes after about an hour or two...I am one of those people that can take pain and I never run to the doctor unless I really have to..I started with all the tests needed like abdominal cat scans and ultrasounds but so far haven't heard anything..they are leaning toward my gallbladder being the culprit but waiting for the evidence...

Having a home business is wonderful but this is totally interfering with my work..
leads are piling up and I can't seem to get caught up and it's so frustrating..
I am grateful though that I can take the time I need to get this thing straightened out and I won't lose my business..if I was working outside the home eventually I would probably be fired or let go so I am so thankful that will never happen..

Hopefully this week I will find some answers to what is going on with me so I can get back on the horse...

Mothers Day

You know, I am very lucky to have the GREATEST parents on earth and a mom that is amazing in so many ways..

From the outside looking in, some people may think my parents have a "weird" dynamic.
My mom is very rough around the edges but with a heart bigger than anyone I have ever known and my dad is quiet and very passive. So you could say that my mom wears the pants in the family..

Growing up she seemed so strict compared to the other kids' parents and I often felt like she was too hard on me. Now that I am older, I appreciate the fact that she worked very hard and tirelessly to keep me on track. I never hung around with the wrong crowd, I always had hobbies and for the most part I never wanted for anything.
We lived in a very small house but my memories of my childhood definetly outscore any memories of my adulthood, that's for sure..

Mothers Day means so much more today than it ever has and being a mom myself I can obviously appreciate and see how tough a job it is.

Both my parents are getting older and in good health but I know many people not fortunate enough to have them around anymore. I treasure the years to come with both my parents and can only hope that I myself will become to be as good if not better a parent then both my parents.

So this mothers day, appreciate your mom. She may not be perfect..She may have made many mistakes but one thing holds true, she's the only mom you've got! So reflect on
the "good" in your mom and let go of any imperfections. I believe that will help
you become a better mom as well. So Happy Mothers Day to all those moms out there and remember that you can always be a better mom.

Kansas couple married for 67 years die hours apart

I read this article and it really tugged at my heart strings..

Kansas couple married for 67 years die hours apart

TROY, Kan. (AP) -- Residents of a northeast Kansas town are mourning the deaths just hours apart of an elderly couple who were married 67 years. Arnita Yingling died in her sleep early Saturday at the family's home in Troy. She was 93. Six hours later her 95-year-old husband, Lyle, died at a nursing home in the nearby town of Wathena.

At their funeral Wednesday, friends and relatives described the two as inseparable. Some found comfort knowing neither would have to live without the other.

The Yinglings were married in 1941. Both were born on northeast Kansas farms and were active in Troy as members of their church and civic organizations.

I know many of you have read this before but no matter how many times I read something like this, I can't help but to shed a tear..Can you imagine all the memories this couple shared together, all the good times and bad..67 years of a life together..what a blessing and what an inspiration to so many...

My mother-in-law and father in law were married for 66 years and my mother in law passed away this past July 2008..my father in law is still living but it's so hard for him, you can tell...He is still so strong physically and mentally and i think if it wasn't for him having such a love and closeness to his family, he probably would've passed away by now..

These couples show such a deep level of committment to one another..what a beautiful story

I don't know what has gotten into my daughter...she is obsessed with clothes and it's just not clothes, her obsession is with SHORT SLEEVES! For the past few months, a day doesn't go by without the same conversation about how she wants to wear short sleeves...she absolutely REFUSES to wear long sleeves..she also wants to change her clothes like 6-10 times a day..she will go as far as put something on her shirt to make it look dirty so I will allow her to change it..

I have no idea what to do..should I allow her to be able to change that many times a day? a friend suggested that I put a time frame on the next time she can change..for ex. tell her that at 2:00 she can change into a different outfit but not until then..

I am very pleased that she is potty trained finally! She will be 3 in May so we accomplished it before her 3rd birthday but I have been told by family members and friends that I am not strict enough with her..I have been told that I should be making her wear what I want her to wear..not letting her choose..my therapist tells me that even at her age, she should be allowed to choose what she wants to put on..
I'd love to hear some of you guys' suggestions on this topic?
