It’s Been Crazy!

I know I promised to get back to a normal posting schedule, but it’s been crazy! Finances, weight gain, stress, health, blood sugar/glucose, and on and on it goes! I am terribly sorry for neglecting this blog. I hope you can all forgive me for not being back sooner.

First the remodel of Nestle Toll House Cafe was supposed to be 2 weeks ago, but it was postponed ’til a week from today. That put some stress on us at work to maintain status quo. Several people at work have gone back to school which means I’m working more during the week. Working more during the week has made my wrist hurt more — darned carpal tunnel! As I type this to you my right wrist is throbbing with pain (perhaps I should have put my brace on) and I’ve also smashed my upper arm into the door leading to the back room. I also have been emotionally hurt lately. The more days I spend at work, the fewer days I’m home; the fewer days I’m home means the more I miss being with Steven. I can’t exactly cut my hours any more or I can’t pay my bills.

Speaking of paying bills, my health insurance and two other bills are due soon and I don’t know how I’m going to pay them! I don’t get paid until next Monday. My health insurance is due on the first as is another bill. My last bill, luckily, is not due until Halloween.

Halloween is posing a threat this year, too. My endocrinologist appointment is on Halloween and I’m not looking forward to this at all! My fasting numbers were doing great, but I had to go and mess things up again. 😡 You see with all this stress that’s been going on, I actually started eating more (because, remember, I’m a stress eater). As I’ve been eating more, my weight’s gone up and my blood sugar/glucose numbers also increased.

We just recently made our way, finally, back to our normal Mass time of 5:00 pm Saturday. Yesterday was our first Saturday back in a long time. I can honestly say I missed my Saturday evening Masses. It’s usually calmer, more relaxed, and a bit more casual. The only thing I didn’t miss was the actual Mass itself. I’m still not convinced I’m staying Catholic after the inevitable passing of Mom, but that’s still another topic that deserves its own entry.

Anyway, starting today, when I went for my normal Sunday/midweek (I know usual midweek is usually Wednesday, but bear with me) grocery shopping, I bought some healthier options for snacks and lunches this week. I bought a pre-made salad (because I rarely have time to make one and trying to cut all the veggies myself is usually a bad idea because of the sharp objects 😉 ), a pre-made healthier sandwich (with spinach, chicken, and artichokes — maybe something else in it; I can’t remember), and some banana chips (I don’t like regular bananas but I like banana chips (I know I’m strange). I also bought some tortilla chips because I don’t really like potato chips any more and they’re healthier; I even purchased some yogurt for breakfast and some cheese in case I want to have some as a snack some night or day.

Well, that’s pretty much all that’s been happening around here, but as soon as I can get more time to myself I promise I will be back to this blog more regularly.

Love and prayers, as always! ❤

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Lakeview Village Retirement Home and I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 37 years young!
