A Roller Coaster...Now I'm Ready For It To Stop

Hello Friends!

Whew!  Life has been throwing some major curveballs lately at me and my family and WOW, we are still making it.  Happy and on the healthy part.  I must say that I truly love my husband.  He has been nothing but supportive and a trooper with what life has been dealing us lately.  He is my best friend and my rock and I don't think I could stay sane without him. Now to get you up to speed.

Health--Jeez.  When it rains, it pours.  As mentioned in previous blogs, I haven't been feeling right and things had finally come to a head.  A sharp wave of pain in my belly...hasn't stopped for over a month.  A battery of tests later, no diagnosis.  Pain, as you know, sucks.  It can suck the happiness and drive right out of you.  That is how I have been feeling.  And knowing me...I bottle it up, don't ask for help and keep over stretching my limits.  I finally broke.  I let it all out in one explosion.  Poor husband.  But in doing so, it opened my eyes to what I had been doing.  Ignoring my needs and the wants of my husband and friends to help!  So during this time, I have been leaning heavily on my hubby and one friend in particular who seems to understand more than anyone (God love you Katie Ellen).  So as of the 14th, I was told that I need to chill and that [the doctor] is going to treat my "spastic stomach."  Well, there is that.

$$$$--When you just start getting your head above water, it seems someone is taking your head and shoving it back in.  AH!  No car payment and liability insurance...a blessing.  Right now, yes.  Because anything that can go wrong, is.  Hubby's car...breaks down.  Ethan...allergic reaction.  Find out...I owe Mom a lot of accident.  Break this...lose that...have to replace.  No break!

So, I said to myself, "What can I fix now?"  The answer, me.  My stress.  My attitude.  My lifestyle.  My dear friend Katie gave me a book and said that she hopes it gives me some peace.  So far..she's is.  I needed that. 

The point of all of this.  Nothing.  Just cherish the happy and beautiful moments and love those in your life unapologetically and with your whole self.  Don't forget about you and remember those who love you want to be there for you.

With love.

Searching for the Silver Lining.

Sipping a cup of coffee...a large cup of coffee staring at the screen trying to figure out what I want to say today.  I have lots I want to say but to get it to form a thought for you to read, one that is witty and clever, is escaping me today. 

For a couple of weeks, it felt like everything was falling apart and I'm suddenly seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  I hate to say this though, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop.  This, coming from the epitome of an optimist.  Maybe it is just a rut.  Maybe I'm turning into a cynic. But the optimist in me doesn't want to believe that!  Ironic, no?

Two awesome things are going to happen this week...I get to tell TXU to shove it and I am actually looking forward to getting my new electric bill from Amigo Energy and I will no longer have a car payment.  We'll start from there and see if I have a new outlook by my next post!

Ever Had One of Those Days?

Hello Everyone!

Have you ever just had "one of those days"? Lately, it seems that everyone is! Life likes to throw curveballs once in a while. It is what you do with those curveballs that makes or breaks you. Recently, I have had to sit down and rediscover my "why" for a lot of things in my life.

Events as of late has made me take a hard look at my life. Recent struggles have really put things in perspective. I'm making the promise to myself to truly dedicate myself to things that I hadn't wholeheartedly had before.

Health and fitness. What a big one! I thought to myself, "My family is number one in my priority. Why am I allowing myself to live with high blood pressure? Why am I staying over weight?" Bingo. Focus, Tianne! My home business allows for me to keep chemicals out of my house and I do that for my son, why shouldn't I give myself the best too? I'm cutting out all of the poison out of my life.

Home Business. Life was throwing me those pesky curve balls left and right and I lost focus with my home business. Now I work for a great real estate team and I'll be doing that too soon as well but I am still wanting to get back on track with my home business. The company offers stability, health, wholesome values..what more can I ask for? So for now, I make a promise to myself to dedicate 8 hours per week to my home business. Small amount of time for a HUGE gain. For those of you

Wifehood. My husband is my world (next to my bean) and I want to make sure that he knows that every day for the rest of our lives. I have always made an effort to do so but now it is even more critical.

I gave myself an allotted period of time to wallow and run from the issues. Now it is time to put my big girl panties on and charge forward!

First Post of The Year.

Yes, it is April. Yes, I just started a blog. Yes, I don't know what I'm doing. But that is the beauty of the internet and technology. I can figure that stuff out!

First, a little about me. I am married to a wonderful man whom I met in high school but didn't date until 2008. I have a hilarious son, who will be 3 in May. He is my life and my little carbon copy. I love being silly with him and spending as much time with him as possible. My life at the moment consists of working for two wonderful real estate agents in League City and trying to work my way back home by building my business. I am also starting an excersice program and nutritrion change, what I like to dub as "what-i-have-a-muscle-there" or "darn-i-want-an-oreo."

So I think I am going to dedicate this blog to my struggles with working out and eating right.
