okay this is an update

the visitors have come and gone, the house is slowly devolving do to me not being around and working...

i am going to the gym more often because well i do not want to slid back. 

oh i have found a bunch of books that i am reading currently, they are great too... i love them sooooo much. they are by Gregory Maguire the first one is called Wicked and it was also made into a play. it is about the life of the wicked Witch and what really is good an evil... and is it really based on the point of view of things and how people see the world around them.

the next one is about her son. that one i have not started on...

 plus i have the whole collection of the the Myth books... they are funny and a good read as well.

 oh and the best part is Ben ordered me the new Harry Potter book. which was an awesome surprise... i can not wait to get my hands on that book...

there is also something else that is in the works and that is ... i am thinking of going back to school part time and getting a degree in engineering like my lovely hubby.... get myself back out in the work force and do something to help someone else... plus there is the designing of the donut house i am going to start the scale drawling and the model shortly, once the house is cleaned up once more... there seems to be many projects in the works, with holloween coming up and things that i have promised people that i would do...

well when i have time i will be back and write some more not to worry...

i was once told that when i write i do so from the heart...

that it does not matter that the words are not spelled correctly or that my grammar is horrid, all that matters is that i write and the meaning , the emotions come through... they are felt when they are read..

 i think that Friend is wonderful yes i do think that He is.. because of Him it feels wonderful to write.  in fact it is a hobby of mine, even if another soul does not see a word that i right for pleasure that is not a bad thing... nope not at all...

i thought that it was about time that i go and update things here on my trusty blog...

 

i know that i have not been around much or have been talking here all that much lately but i felt that it was time that i did..

today so far has been kind of long.. and very very quiet...

my best friend is away for the next 20 days so i am missing her alot. her and i talk all the time and it fills my days with smiles.

called my grandmom today to just talk and see how things are going with her. she wants me to come over and spend the day with her. so i think that i better find the time to do so, after my house is back to normal

 we are doing rather well, the floors are in and we hope to do the electrical done tonight and to have the place cleaned up by this weekend 

 to me that is rather good progress with all the little things that seem to have gone wrong along the way. 

 

the weekend
5/29/2007 4:54:00 PM

hi everyone

i just wanted to let everyone out there know how the weekend went, being that it was a long one and well there was a lot of together time that normally Ben and i do not get. the time that we have together is normally in the morning and then at night for an hour or two. but that is about it.

i think that i surprised Ben this weekend as well. because i choose to do things with his even if it was not my cup of tea then go off on my own and do things. 

so let us go back in time all the way back to oh lets say Saturday. lol is that back far enough for you? Well we did not see in that is for sure, but it could have been worse i think. holiday weekend not sleeping in, oh yeah sounds about right.

well Saturday we had plans more plans then we were able to get done. sadly. All day Saturady we worked on the hydroponics system killing aphids i hate aphids they are not nice, and they kill my babies... so i sprayed and sprayed this organic pest killer that was basicly seseame seed oil so that was cool. sadly it did not work as well as we wished it had we still have the little buggers.

we also hung a reflective paper on the walls to help with the light, and we moved the systems around, put new plastic on the floor, and tied the tomatoe monsters up better, oh and i also cut them back a little. well that took almost the whole day which Ben felt bed about but, it was okay it was something that had to be done.

then Sunday rolled along and well we slept in a bit later then normal and it felt soooooooooo good.  well i wanted to go bike riding with Ben on sunday not realizing that it was going to be hot as hell. Ben was great thou He really was, we packed the bikes up and off riding we went. we thought that it was be great to ride up 52 like i go to trouble's house. there are a lot of little shops if You ride up far enough and it is rather just nice country. well as we rode i get tired and right were i was ready to give up was the entrence to Winterthur, i really beautiful place to walk and just enjoy the out doors. and it seemed like a great place for Ben and i to wall around before making the trip back. well it did not work that way. i do not know if You have read Ben's blog yet or not but He is posting something in there which talks about the event. i was sooooo angery, the gaurd at the gate would not even let me get off my bike and walk it to the visitors center. that is just mean. after all the place is there for the public to enjoy, and they let horse in there why not me and my bike. well sad to say i was so mad that i turned my bike around and we rode home.and all i could think was.... i can't even go on the grass with my bike, i would fall over.  ahh well it is another place that i am not going to go back to. nice or not.

On our way back home Ben and i stopped at a few places looking at things. then out of the blue He said would You like to get something to eat. i said sure, and we went to the Dinner. that was fun. it gave us time to think about the gaurd and what kind of letter that we wanted to write the company He worked for. after all why turn paying customers away if they are willing to walk or leave there bikes at the gate?

well we went home after having something to eat and showered and got dressed in something kind of nice. then off to a Freinds out for His picnic in which we really did not eat anything, but it was nice to talk to people, and to listen to what they were talking about.

after that we went to Long Wood Gardens for the fountain and fireworks show. that was just down right awesome. right as they were going to have the event a huge thunderstorm popped up. they made everyone go into the conservitory. because the weather people where saying to take cover, and the storm was bad very very bad. so we talked with the people around us for over an hour. waiting to see if the fireworks were going to happen. and surprizingly they did. at 10:15 they were going to go off, so back down to the field we went, and this time we got the best seats in the house, right upfront in the center. it was amazing. We were so close that we were covered with soot from the fireworks themselves. i loved it. it was a night filled with adventure and beauty what more could a person ask for.

as soon as i got home put bread makings in the bread maker and went to bed.

in the morning there was fresh bread, in which we ate... so i had to make another loaf.

then to Ben's Moms we went, to spend a wonderful day and night.

 

 

 

It seemed like a nightmare but i was not scared
5/27/2007 8:31:00 AM
I had a very messed up dream last night that is still fresh in my mind
 
there was some people in that dream that i knew, and it was just weird.
Ben was there and we were living in a house together,  for some reason i was also at points driving in a truck, and there was an out break of Zombies, but it was strange too, because it was not quick the way the out brake happened there were people that where still moving about and doing things like they normally would,  i remember being in a resterunt and also being in a grocery store, but what i remember most is that the devil wanted me and all this Zombie stuff was to get me to give up to give myself over to him. in the end things where getting worse people were dieing and zombies were everywhere, finally i was in the grocery store again bagging groceries to help out... and He came in and just said follow me we need to talk, we walked across the parking lot, and around the corner to a large house, and He asked "are you ready" can you deal with more? i leaned up against the building, and quietly said please make it so that my family, Amanda and the kids and joy and pickle and chenzo are safe that they will not be turned into zombies that they will live. hetried to say that it was to many lives for just mine, i only replied you seem to want mine the most to it's worth it. then He smiled and said yes i guess it is.  wer shook hands and then He turned to the house and said wait here... a man came out that was a zombie and He came right at me, tackling me to the ground , smiling down at me say i wanted the honor... all went black i woke in the house, and was amazed that my mind was slow but okay, i could think, i was His but i could think.  i wanted to be creative to paint something to play music just to make my now slow mind work to see if i could. i took a painting off the walls because at the bottom was notes musical note, and i reconized them i knew them as what they were, and i was excited about that. so i ran into the kitchen with the painting and show the devil saying see i know them i can think, i can play them, He asked to you remember the tempo. the speed at which those notes are played and i said yes.... He said good then playthem on your clarinet for me perfectly right now, and i looked at him as if he was nut, saying that i have not touched my clarinet for 10 years i need practice and my fingers are now slow how can i. and you know to think it felt like i was pushing throu a fog, it was slow and took effort. the next thing i know is that i am back at the house with Ben and we are talking He is a zombie now too. we are a green blue color, i am laying on the couch all depressed commenting that i am not hunger for flesh i really just want shredded wheat. Joy came over to the house and she was health. and looked at us all scared i told her that i would not bite. and we talked she told me of her mother that was in the hospital who was not going to live, she was crying, i hugged her, then walked to the window and looked out on  a world filled with zombies. doing things here and then, next thing i know images are flashing before my eyes, that of women and telephone lines and trees, and beds with canapies... that is when i woke.
 
i think that this was the strangest, dream that i have ever had, and the more that i think about it the more detail that i see. the more that i remember of it.

HI there everyone it's update time!!
4/24/2007 9:04:00 PM

Hi,

i thought that i would come in and talk a little about what was going on in my life...

last friday i was rather upset. i had a call from a Dr. that was not the greatest and well i was scared, so i had to see the Dr.  today. and well i think that Ben and i handled it very well and i am not crying or upset i am just looking into the facts about things... my Dr. is sending me to few specialist one is a High Risk Specialist at Christaina Hospital. He is going to work with the first Dr. and together they are going to deside what Hemotologist that i go see.

i have what is known as MTHFR  with a double A1298C mutation.

 http://www.pregnancy-info.net/mthfr.html

http://www.pregnancy-info.net/QA/answers-MTHFR_/ 

the above links are really good resourses. because of this discovery my Dr. feels that she has found the cause of the Miscarrages that i have had. so that is a good thing. but she says that i am an intresting case because i also have Von Willebrands which is almost the complete opposite of MTHFR... but they both effect different elements of my blood.

the Dr. would like to put me on injectable blood thinners and Folic Acid supplements, but is holding off until i see the High Risk Dr. and the Hemotologist. so she says in the end  it will take about 6 weeks to come up with a good plan. that will have me pregant but watched so close i will be sleeping in the Dr.'s office lobby.  

there are alot of Risks that Ben and I are going to take but we feel that it is worth it. so we are going to watch closely and let them poke and prod me for a while. I promise to listen to the Dr's all of them. and together both me and the little yet to be bundle will be health and happy.

so look at the links above and if anyone has questions please let me know. i will either find out the answer or i will add it to the list to ask the Dr. when next i see Her. 

okay other news....

the charity thing is this weekend i am ready and waiting. i am sure that it will be a grand night. some really good friends are going to be there with me as well so wish me luck.

our nieghbor got a new greyhound he has just been off the track for about 2 weeks and seems to be a really nice dog. i wish them the best with the new family member.

Ben seems to still be loving his car... i am super happy that he is happy with it. and  the hydro seems to be doing well as well. i think that we will have a nice crop kof plant soon.

faraday still thinks that she can fly. which she can not. but she will never learn.

the gym with Tony is going well a little hard to follow the diet but i am working on it... and the work outs are well kicking my butt.... i am going to reach my goal i know that i will i just can't give up.

oh here is one more thing that is awesom.... Ben got me an ipod... and boy do i love it... i got a blue nano. i take it everywhere with me and i my best bud when it comes to the gym.

okay i better say good night before i go rambling any more.. 

 

guess what?
4/2/2007 10:56:00 PM

there is another charity comp. and i entered into it. now so far i have been on a winning streak lets pray that i keep that up.

this time they added somethings to make it different... now there is a word list and i need to use 10 if i use more then i get bonus points. which is kind of cool... so knowing me and my competing spirt have use 2.5 times the amount required. bonus points never hurt.

the other thing that they did this time is have people select topics from a list. and there are only 10 to 12 posts allowed... so this makes things a bit more challenging.

so far i need just 2 more posts and it's done... the bad news is the event is not for oh weeks... then again the good news is that i can refine what i have and make it perfect. or atleast something that is completely to my tastes. bad news is that i hate waiting and well it looks like i am going to need to wait.

okay what other news do i have....

have been going to the gym a lot and slowly and surely loosing waight and feeling great. well kind of.. for some reason the last two times that i worked out my sugar dropped and well i got a little wooozy... i am working on repairing that.

i so need to thank Walt. the Marine running cadences are the bomb omg do i love them, i think that i have memorized them already, and i play them more then just at the gym. there is something about them that makes me smile. so i clean the house to them as well... why not it works. so if You read this Walt, thank You sooooooooooo much You are awesome. don't worry if You don't read this i am going to tell You any way. yep yep

oh there is another person out there that needs to be thanked and that is trouble... the bread machine You gave me and Ben is like awesome. it is more then awesome it is succulent. WOW... i think that Ben is in love with it as well... thou he does not make the bread he sure does enjoy it. in fact i have bread baking right now.

okay i think that i can start thinking about going to bed... i hope that everyone has a great night.
