Dealing With It

As I mentioned my stress level has peaked. It peaked to the point that I got shingles. Oh my goodness - shingles are painful. Did I mention that shingles are PAINFUL?! I believe that I have been given a warning. Shingles are brought on by stress. I have never experienced anything like it! I have stepped back and looked at several things. I have found that my outlook has got to change. I'm not even sure what happened to my outlook. Really!

I used to be this happy go lucky free thinking person. But I'm getting back on that track and laughing more and more every day.

Oh yeah - an 8 year old little boy has taught me how to play chess!

I haven't been here because my life has been consumed with stress. I'm not kiddin! I have been so extremely stressed out that I am just now getting back on my feet. It's time for me to take control of my life and let all of the negative outside influences go. I will talk more about this in my post that I will be putting here soon. Stay tuned! I'm comin back!

Today is the day that I promise myself that I will not let stress consume me anymore!

I Know...

I know just what you are thinking. I should update my blog and stop talking about updating it and keeping it up to date and so on and so on. Blah - Blah - Blah! We've all heard it before.

Ok, I'll do better.

Now, where have I been...

I've been to a couple of funerals. Dealt with those and moved on. I've rented an RV. YES, AN RV! Did we look like Robin Williams in the movie RV? I doubt it but I do have to say that we all rented the movie a few days before we rented the RV and went on vacation.

Our garden has done so well and provided us with so many veggies. I love home grown food. Home school is going well. Yes, we are still in school. There won't be very much of a summer break. Right now we are only looking at the month of August. We'll see what happens between now and then.
