V Day

Happy Valentine's Day to all!

This morning I am relaxing on the computer with a cup of coffee. I will make a pot roast dinner in my pressure cooker before I have to work at 3:30. I want it done before then so that I can take some to work for my supper. Because, you just know that hospital food is so tasty ;).

I managed to get some cleaning done this week and a steady dose of meds. Amazing! According to the scales, I have lost some more weight. I don't know how. I will see what the hospital scales say today. Home scales and hospital scales differ by like 3 pounds. I like my reading so much better.

I bought a new steam mop. Love it! It's so much easier than a regular mop and bucket. You don't have to shoo everyone out of the room and bar anyone from entering. lol. It cleans great and gets stuck on food off easily.

Not much is happening. Kendra is cuddling with me, finally! I have waited long enough. I love it. Kaelynn is just cooing away and reaching for things. Kaydence is getting a little braver about moving on the floor. She is now getting on her knees and rocking. But she is not happy about it and is protesting loudly.

Nothing is new with the boys as usual. Me and Mike just work and try to take care of the house and everyone in it. It feels like a boring rut we are in. But, it might change. We are making plans to get this house in order and fixed. We have a lot to do in a short amount of time. So we are making that a priority now.

Well, I need to get off from here and take a shower and start my supper. But first, I will cuddle with the grandbabies.

Have a great V Day! (and no alien "visitors" allowed)

Face Wash

Why have I not ever heard of this before? I have acne prone skin. Had it every since I was 9. I've tried every freaking acne face wash there is and nothing has ever worked. So, here I am in my 40s and finally my skin looks good. For three weeks now. I love it! No acne. No dryness. Smooth and healthy complexion. I really do look younger. So what is this? I don't know if I dare say. I mean why would I want others to look good too. lol. Oh, it is:

castor oil and olive oil
What!! Why would you put more oil on your face to help with oily skin, you say. I thought it was gross too. But since I have tried everything anyway, I gave it a shot. And I was sold on the first "washing".

I found this on a blog that I follow: Simple Organized Living. I think I found the blog on Pinterest. You find so many neat things on that site that you might otherwise never have found. On Simple Organized Living, the oil cleansing method was linked and referenced too.

Thank You, Hubby!

As I was reading my posts in FB this morning, I ran across a link about dads and I was thankful that I have the husband that I have. The link was to a blog post, titled, Calling all Dads, from the blog, Dad Revolution. The post was about how the government census classifies dads and how society still thinks of dads as babysitters.

I am thankful that my husband has changed plenty of diapers for all four of our kids. He has made bottles, gave them baths, walked the floors with them. He cooks, does dishes, and picks the house up. He will do laundry also. He does have many faults, but, all in all, I choose to put up with them in order to experience all the goodness that I do get. Also, now that the kids are adults, they have a great relationship with their dad still.

Now we have 6 grandchildren and they all love him dearly. He gives them plenty of attention, kisses and hugs, and shares his coffee with them. Also, when I watch the kids for my daughters, I can count on him to help me take c…

Anger Management

I must confess that I have a problem in becoming angry and belligerent to people. Innocent people that have nothing to do with why I am angry. And there never is just one reason for the anger. It's an accumulation of irritations and obligations, etc. I have behaved badly at stores in front of customers and especially to the cashiers. I have yelled, cursed, and threatened many customer service reps on the phone whether it be the phone company, the electric company, for myself or for my mother. I take things out on anyone near me. Last Friday, I had a problem with my virus protection program on my computer through my cable service provider and did the chat thing with a customer service rep. Yes, I typed plenty of inappropriate things to let him know the depth of my annoyance.

Don't worry, karma did bite me in the ass today at work. A patient treated me in the same exact way that I treat other people when I'm pissed. No, it did not feel good and I did get angry at them. So, …
