Just noticed

My blog turned a year old on June 20th. In the last year I’ve blogged about all my adventures (good or bad) LoL.

In the last year I’ve posted 186 posts to my blog

I’ve had 850 views to my blog. 72 comments have been left.

For something I thought I’d tire of I’ve come to love my blog. I’m so glad I started it a year ago.

Here’s to another busy year to come!

The last, last day

Of school for our family is today. Oldest has been out for a week, I’ve been done since Monday. Youngest is out today at 1100 am!!!!

Then off to lunch for his favorite Jack In The Box!

While at Jack in the box I ran into a friend I haven’t seen in way to long. It was nice to catch up.

And of course after that we need to go clean the MILs place. Here is one of her cats.

She has 2 their only friendly to her. Growl and lunge at other people.

I’ve had 9 cats in my life time and NEVER seen cats as mean as hers.

In honor of Lent

I signed out of my Facebook account in honor of lent and giving something up.

I haven’t given up something for lent since I was younger and Catholic. I chose to do it this year. This year that opens my families fabulous journey for betterment.

And since that time that I made this decision and signed out I’ve had people try every trick to get me to sign back in. I would have hoped they’d appreciate or maybe even be proud of me for giving up something for lent.

Guess not. Makes you think about the false prophet comment. The devil is working through those people. People I trusted. Now I’m left wondering..

Are they true friends? Do they have my best interest at heart? Your friends should help you, not try and sabotage you.

I’m very disappointed. Is the bottom line.

And after all the drama and lies to try and get me to sign back onto Facebook. I HAVE NOT! And am coming to a point where I may delete it after lent.

Beware of false prophets!

A few scary moments

We’ve had a few scary moments with WafflesTheWonderDog since she adopted us from the pound at 12 weeks old.

When she was a baby she’d eat to fast or drink to fast and choke. It used to startle us and scare her into shivers. There have also been many a time in the middle of the night in her crate which is in my room we’d hear her choking. We jump up and get her out and rub her back and tell her its ok. All the while she is shivering in fear looking up at us with more love in her eyes than we ever deserve.

People say they “rescued” their dog from the pound. Well I feel she rescued us. She has brought so much to my family and to our friends. So much enjoyment and love. I can never repay her. We are so lucky she found us and chose us as her family.

We went and saw her one day at the pound. Another lady was interested in her. She spent 2 hours with her. And then I guess she left. We returned to the pound when it opened the next day knowing the puppy maybe gone. I told the children if she’s meant to be with us. She will be there. And there she was! Thank God.

She came out of her cold concrete cage that had been her home since she was 8 weeks old at the shelter and right into our arms full of love and trust like we had always had her. She fit in the palm of one hand. She was 3.5 pounds.

We took her from there to our vet and got a healthy check up. Then went to buy her food, toys, a harness and leash.

Within the first couple weeks we learned she has food allergies. And they are very similar to my aspie sons allergies. She’s allergic to soy, corn, peanut, and tap water.

Well that delighted my aspie. Made her an even better friend to him. Waffles also does this reverse sneeze thing that kind of mimics what my son does. And she loves to be carried and cuddled.

She’s really a great companion and has helped my kids a lot. They now have something they like to care for. They like to teach her tricks. Take her for walks. And watch her kiss our 21 year old Persian cat.

There is life

Outside that door, there is life. I can sit here and play on twitter, instagram, my fav forums. Or I can choose to live my life.

I choose to live life, and play. Enjoy the time I will still be in Coastal California, which I hope will be short!

I deleted my Facebook that was attached to my twitter a month ago. So glad I did. One less place I feel obligated to check in. Twitter bores me mostly, I go there and talk to myself. LoL

I prefer my Instagram. I like to see peoples lives threw their eyes, camera lens. I’ve seen places all over the world thanks to Instagram.

I’m a traveler by nature. Always been happier in RV than house even as a child.

I’m getting ready for a huge life change. I need to get focused. Lose things that distract me. My blog will remain no matter what. It helps keep me grounded, focused.

Its a place to put my thoughts. To help me process my day. And a place to write my family’s journey through life, autism, health issues, our relocating.

Now if it would just help me get this house into a 26′ truck. I just don’t see this house fitting into a truck. My husband assures me it will be fine. I guess I will believe it when I see it.

Low immunity and people who think its funny

I have low immunity. Its been documented in my medical charts since I was 6 months old. Its just the way I’ve always been. I’ve come to accept it. Not like it. But accept it, live with it.

I have to be careful around people. If their sick I avoid them. If my kids are sick they stay in their rooms, I take things to them. I sterilize the house if one of us is sick.

When my children were younger and would go to let’s say Mc Donalds and play in the toys or Chuck E Cheese, or a friends house. I’d strip them down when we got home each their clothes give them a bath.

Lots of situations are stressful for me. Church for instance with everyone wanting to greet and shake hands or hug. My job, I care for pre k and kinder kids during their lunch. And they are always sick. Shopping carts, gas pumps, anything many people touch are germ cespools.

I take 8 pills a day to keep my immune system as strong as it can be. Yet last year 2012 I had only 45 days that I was NOT sick or on antibiotics. 45 days in the WHOLE year.

My coworkers think its funny if their sick, they make jokes about I’ll bet she won’t come near me. My TRUE friends understand, and want me healthy. They tell me Don’t come over here I’m sick.

I wish everyone was understanding. That everyone cared. But this is a crappy world, with crappy people. People that judge me due to my low immunity. People that judge my son due to #Autism, #Aspergers.

Did you know that even a very small amount of sugar in your diet has been proven to impair white blood cells by 50%.

Some people have low immunity due to nutritional deficiency.

People like me with low immunity can only drink filtered water.

I have to get 8-10 hours of sleep or I’m 90% more likely to get sick. I’ve just learned this part this year. Its made a huge improvement in my life.

I take many immune boosting pills and items. They do all help. Combined together I can get about 4-6 months now with out getting sick. Which is an awesomely huge change.

I worry about being a burden on my family. However my hubby says I never am. But its a real downer always being sick. And a huge financial burden. A simple cold usually turns to a sinus infection, ear infection, pink eye. If I don’t get in soon enough it goes to a uti. Just keeps getting worse and worse.

I have so many allergies to medications its very hard to treat me. That is why avoidance is best for me. If someone is Ill, I won’t go near them.

Don’t judge people until you’ve walked a week in their shoes. You do not know their trials or tribulations.
