Sad News~

A co worker told me this morning that she has a very large mass on her breast and is going to a doctor on Monday to talk about setting up for surgery to have it removed.

It saddens me and I hope and pray to God that they can get it all so she can live longer.

Cancer sucks.

NO if’s and’s or butt’s about it.
It just stinks.

 

She is such a nice lady.
Very hard working and a woman I am proud to call a friend.

LauriePrayers  for her would be appreciated.

Here it is Thursday evening.

Three more days until July first

Just amazing how fast the time goes

My week has been mostly with grandchildrn

And here it is almost another weekend upon us

Amazing

I know I probably talk about how quickly time flies but it does

 

I have no new news to share other than my granddaughter will be here in another month,  or sooner

I am betting sooner

For some reason I think she will be here sometime around July 15th.

Sigh

I am so very blessed

🙂

Michael

Michael is my favorite male’s name

John and Daniel are close seconds, but I love the name Michael

Not crazy about Mike, and I would have loved to name one of my sons Michael, but my husband vetoed the idea due to it being his brother’s name

And it is his brother Michael I am writing about.

I saw Michael today and one can instantly see that he has lost weight

This is a man who was well over 350 pounds

But he has lost 80, and plans to lose at least eighty if not a hundred pounds more

I asked him what made him decide to lose weight and he said “Because I was dying”

He said he couldn’t walk across the room without being out of breath, or walk the fifty steps to get to the mailbox without feeling like he was dying.

He said he has given up all breads, all sugar, real and artificial and he only drinks water

He eats mostly fruits vegetables and proteins

He really looks good, and younger

Yes he is still overweight, but he feels so much better

I applaud him

Losing weight is horrifically tough and one must be very determined to stick with it

I wish I could be so determined……

Well here it is, the first official day of summer

I have to say it….I am ready for fall.

I hate hot and humid weather

I hate it so much that I refuse to go out in it if I don’t have to

Today seems to be less humid although it is still lingering a bit.

I would love to open up all the windows in my house but that just allows humidity to creep in so I will just keep the A/C running.

 

I have a sinus headache

I took some medicine and it has helped a bit but not nearly as much as I would like.

Life as I know it is pretty good

In a month and four days I will have a new granchild

Another perfect gift from God.

I am anxious to meet her

Payday is tomorrow which will be great

I got a $700 hospital bill that came in the mail the other day, due to the infection in my back

Sigh

My blood sugars have hovered between 140 and 180 lately

180 is rare though and I think it was that the other night from drinking a beer before bed.

Go to remember to eat some almonds after having a beer to counter act it.

 

Almost put in my two week notice the other day……how I would love to not have to work, but I still have my car payment a few other bills so I must work till those are paid off

 

I was talking with my grandchildren Aaron and Bailey about maybe going to Disneyland next year Aaron will be 9 and Bailey will be almost 5

Granted Miss Ava will still be a baby, but hopefully we can do it

Of course I will invite my other kids too but not sure they will want to go

If one flies Allegiant it will take us directly to Orlando.

 

Just something to think about

 

Hard to believe six months and three days and it will be Christmas again

Going to have to start my Christmas shopping soon……

 

Another Work Day

I have to work tonight ten to six

Not too thrilled with it, but it is eight hours so I will muttle through

I am also training a girl, which I was told has no interest what so ever in working third shift.

But she is too scared to tell our boss she doesn’t want to do the job.

It is cleaning and more cleaning……

Then she works tomorrow night by herself…..

I do hope I can get a nap in before I go in.

My two younger grandchildren will be here tomorrow so there will be little chance of napping then…..

Sigh, I long for the day that I can retire……

1830

 

Better For It-

I heard this song on my I Pad with the above title.

It is a man singing to a woman that he is better for knowing her

I thought about it and know I am better for every experience, every heart break, every single person that have passed through my life

I am better for all of it

Life is a lesson…..

Life is for love and caring and experiences…….and I am better for all of it

Even those I have loved and lost and for those that I really don’t like or care for…..I think I am better for knowing them

Yes there are ways I can improve my life……

But it is a good life

 

JesusMy eldest son came to visit this afternoon and we started talking about marriage and life

That turned to the differences he has with his wife, who when he first met was a completely different woman than she is now.

When they first got together she was interested in things he was interested in and now…..she isn’t interested in anything he likes and more importantly, she has become very concerned with living a life for God, and my son doesn’t understand what changed.

She has told him nothing has changed, that she has always loved God.

My son has told me more than once that had she acted this way when he met her or dated her, he never would have married her.

She is very critical of everything he does.

Brian likes to drink, she hates that he drinks.

She has gone so far to tell him, that she will be in Heaven one day while he will be in hell.

 

My son is frustrated beyond words and as usual I can’t find the words to comfort him or express how important God is and how one day he will need God.

But as usual I failed miserably.

Marriage is a lot of hard work……Marriage isn’t always fun….But marriage is a commitment…….a decision made every day to make it work……

God is so very important to life, for marriage.

Unfortunately I am married to a man who doesn’t believe in God, and while it isn’t a deal breaker for us, I can see how it could be for some one else.

Sigh

 

My sister hasn’t emailed me since last Sunday, so I am beginning to think I have pissed her off in some way.

For the life of me I don’t know how I could have……

We are always honest with each other and tell each other the truth……so I am not sure what if anything that I may have said or done to upset her

Still……I am going to have to figure out why she isn’t writing……

As it goes in summer time we have ball games.

My grandson’s last game is this Tuesday night.

Which I have to say I am quite thrilled about.

He has a tournament next weekend but I work so I won’t get to see it.

My grand daughter Kayla plays twice a week on Monday and Wednesday nights and we usually just go to one of her games.

Three games in one week is an awful lot.

Her games go through till the middle of July.

My Keira will be turning 12 on Wednesday.
I am taking her shopping tomorrow for her presents.

She says she wants her nails done, and then I assume we will be shopping for clothes.

And I will take her out to lunch.

Not sure what she has in mind for clothes, or maybe she wants something else that I am just not privy to it yet.

🙂

 

I did buy her a Glee poster as she LOVES the show Glee.

So I know she will be thrilled with that too.

I will give that to her when we have her party on June 24th.

As summer rolls along we are keeping busy.

Busier than I would like but such is life.

Fall will be here before we know it and the kids will be back in school.

Ava Marie will be here and I will be busy watching grandchildren Monday through Friday.

Not that I mind.

To me my grandchildren are gifts from God.

And I have been truly blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving

 

Work-

My coworker worked a twelve hour shift today, working the last four with me

She complained the entire time about how tired she was

She is 27, she really doesn’t have a clue what tired really is

She left at seven leaving me here alone at work for four hours

She will work a twelve hour shift tomorrow too

And then I will be alone tomorrow night for four hours too

Not that I mind

I don’t.

I have one shower to give, a few medicines to pass, lock up the building and the one next door and then I sit for the last two hours of my shift, unless some resident calls me to help with something.

It is pretty easy.

I hate working weekends, but once I am here I don’t mind them too much.
