Another Day in Bed

Well, I went to the OB/GYN today. Apparently the cyst is the same size of my ovary, and is inflamed which is why it is causing me pain. I have tomorrow off and return to Thursday. I hope they don't move me into a different department. Either way I'll do my best to work in the other department. As for my cyst, they normally go away on their own and that's what NP is hoping will happen. If I get a sharper pain, I need to go into the ER for an ultrasound to make sure its not bleeding out. Either way, here I am. Out of work and missing it. Random note: Asa just asked me to duct tape plastic cups, one on each side of his butt lol. Well, much to think about and too drowsy from the medicine to think about it. Laters.

So, last night I went to the emergency room due to a stabbing pain in my lower left pelvis. They ruled out appendicitis, but found a cyst on my right ovary. Still in a lot of pain today, but with the pain medication it is a little bit more tolerable. The doctor said they normally go away or stop being painful on their own, but if it persists, then I need to get it checked out. I've decided to take the day off tomorrow due to the pain and loopiness the medicine gives me. I'm afraid I'm going to lose my job. It's been really good working for me emotionally, and the financial addition it brings helps a lot as well. I pray this pain goes away very soon, so I can return to work. I'm sure if I needed to take a medical leave and explain what is going on, that they would take me back, but it just sucks just starting a job and something like this happen. Mikah's been sick for the past several weeks and it doesn't seem to be getting better. He's still nauseous. He's making me worry, because he's getting so pale. I need to make him an appointment tomorrow as well. I'm reading The Element Chronicles by Eric Ruebeck. So far it's got me interested. It's not the kind of story I would usually read, but that's also why I like it. Well, off to rest. Hopefully tomorrow will be an easier day.

This cat is crazy!

So every time I lay down and get comfortable my cat gets right in my face and demands attention. He will nuzzle for a moment then turn around and put his Burt in my face. Seriously?!?!? I do love him dearly though. So I survived another day at work. I've been lifting a bunch of cushions today up and over my head. I know what you're thinking they're cushions. They're light. Well yeah one or two maybe but these are like couch cushions and I carry at least 8 at the same time over and over again. I trim the excess threads..carry the cushions to the squishing machine so I can slip a bag over them then push a button to release the part that shoves them into the bag /box...tape it then label it and run it where it can be scanned and come back and do the whole process all over again. Yes it's menial, but honestly I love it. Did some deep cleaning here at home. I have to say if you give me a choice of a spot cleaning mop or one with cotton ropes, I'll choose the cotton any day. It has to be hilarious how I mop floors. Here there is no carpet so there's a lot to mop. Well I get a fluffy, but ragged towel and step and slide around on that while I take the very much dripping mop all over the floor in figure eights. As I walk around with the towel under my feet it dries the floor as I go. Someone at work today asked me if I had any hobbies. I just laughed and said too many. Let me see if I can make a list...: Henna art jewelry making wire art mosaics tiedye painting sketching singing song writing crocheting reading writing novels sewing refinishing furniture oil pastels photography Give me time...............I'm sure there's more :) Well, my shoulder is burning fom the lifting at work, so I guess I best ice it and lay down. Blessings friends.

A New Beginning

So I've started working again, and it is full time. Pretty much I clean up the threads off of cushions, then pack them up. Simple enough. It's not much of a job, but I enjoy the people I work with, and I can do the work.

It's been hard, though, not being at home when the older kids are sick, or missing Scotty, my hubby, on his lunch breaks at home. Coming home tired and still trying to push through to feed the kids and keep the house going.

Focusing on the family has always been important to me. I feel like I didn't have much when I was growing up. Not that I'm complaining, but ever since we've started having sit down meals with everyone, the vibe in the home is so much better.

We're on the search for what houses are out there that we'll want to look at when April comes around for when we will purchase our very first home as a family. We'll finally have a space that we can call ours.

What else can I say about what is going on right now? I've been teaching my daughter how too cook. She is always so eager to help me out in the kitchen when it comes to cooking. She's only 11, but I tell you what, she can fry chicken better than me! My little mini-me, except with blue eyes ;)

I've been playing video games with the boys and loving every minute of it.

Where am I spiritually? I'm needing fellowship. The real deal. Next week the whole family will begin the search for a local church. I'm not really looking for a place to stay but a place to branch out of. I know I eventually want to have church/prayer/study/discussions in my home, but I can't do that now, nor am I ready to. That season is yet to come, but I feel it on the horizon.

Before I can even consider this I need to find a mentor of some kind and also pray deeply about how to work it into my family life.
