Well I’m finally back. It seemed like nothing could go right lately. First the snow and ice, then i got sick, then the rest of the house got a stomach virus lasting about 2 days in groups of 2, which of course finally wound it’s way back to me. I finally start to feel mostly better and then Jaime got our hosting account suspended. I didn’t want to start all over but I would and could have. I have a separate domain on another hosting company that I am using only for testing purposes because I don’t want to mess up these two blogs anymore. I am still not quite filling like myself but I am feeling a lot better, so I decided now that things have slowed down and are back in order it’s time for me to get back on track.
This is not the only blog I’ve neglected, I neglected them all but I think I’m good to go now. When I finish this post I will work out a schedule to make things a little easier. I think that a schedule is really needed so that if I must can preschedule a few posts in advance. I will be working out a schedule for both of my regular blogs. One blog pretty much manages itself and the last one like I said is for testing. I’ll get this together in no time just hard work and persistence will get me through.
On a brighter note I might be getting a new addition to my household soon. My dad’s dogs, both registered Shih Tzus just had puppies and I’ve been asking in advance for one almost 2 years. She’s almost ready to come home with me and I’m so excited. Due to complications while giving birth Shalimar only had three puppies and is unable to have any more. Both Shalimar and Dutch are both registered so the puppies are pure bred. My dad and stepmother are selling the 2 that we didn’t get. I am just glad that they are giving us one for free. I don’t really think their doing it for me though I think it’s more for my youngest daughter. She immediately stole her grandparents hearts.
I think that’s it for now. It’s dinner time in the house of too many last names. I would like to thank SoapBird for checking up on me, motivating me, and getting me back in line.service
I actually found this recipe in the WeightWatchers New Complete Cookbook and everyone in the house that enjoys tilapia and tacos loved it. I am trying to cook out of my healthy cookbooks and will post the recipes as I find the ones I really like, and keep in my mind that I’m a very picky eater.
Nutritional facts: (per serving, 2 tacos)
Here are a few I haven’t tried yet:
I tried a new recipe tonight and and it was yummy delicious. It’s soft tacos with tilapia and chili-lime mayonnaise. I am so pleased with the taste of these tacos that I will be posting the recipe tomorrow.
Last week had ice, frozen rain, far below freezing temps, wind chill factors of 0, school closures, business closures, and I got sick. What else could happen?
I had important phone meetings that were missed without any notification because there wasn’t a system in place to inform myself or anyone else. But to top it all off I was flaked on by my dentist. She really did flake. The office switchboard called at 9 am to let me know that they were going to open at 12 pm and that’s when I should come in instead of 11 am when my appointment was scheduled for. Guess which one of us showed up at 11:45 am and waited in her car, then guess which one of us didn’t show up at all.
This week had to be better right? The temps got out of the 30s and all the snow has melted around my location. It might be better, we’ll see but so far I have frozen rain and possibly snow coming tonight and Wednesday and I’ve gotten sicker. I didn’t think it was possible but I’ve been proven wrong yet again.
I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned what happens to me physically and psychologically when I get sick enough. Let me start with a little history, my first conscious memory of having a problem was about 10 years ago while I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. I know that there must have been a previous incident the my subconscious remembered even if I didn’t. Normally at night I go to sleep with my only problem being that I don’t sleep well or easy. But when I get congested this changes drastically. I don’t sleep voluntarily, it is only under extreme exhaustion, which amounts to about 2 hours of sleep, lightheadedness and slight disorientation from sleep deprivation. I failed to mention the final necessary condition is that I have to be sitting up, yes even when I do finally fall asleep.
Last week I wasn’t sick enough but as of last night I officially am. I have a fear, be it rational or not, that while I’m sick, I will fall asleep, stop breathing and die. I’ve done the first two on more than one occasion. The lack of air startles me awake and then the struggle to get enough air in my lungs begins.
As I’ve mentioned my first memory of this happening was during my last pregnancy. So, since then I’ve worked out a routine.
That’s a typical night of being sick for me and hopefully I get better before Jaime’s sleep deprived too.
Of course there’s the obvious question, why don’t I talk to my doctor about this? The last doctor I talked to about this just dismissed it because it only happens when I’m congested. I don’t have a doctor to talk about it with here in Irving because I have neither a job or insurance.
So I guess that I’m actually looking for the rest of this week to get better because I’m almost at my crying point. I try real hard not to cry while sick because it only makes it harder to breath.
Please, please get better. As my favorite quote says, “I know God will not give me anything that I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.” – Mother Teresa.
I found this through a friend of a friend of a web surfer. After much searching I had to attribute this to Anonymous. Thank you Anonymous for keeping things in perspective. I needed this after all the rain, snow, ice, freezing temps, and still being sick for the second time this week. I am thankful for all of these and more.service
