Doctor, Doctor

After a week and a half of suffering, many sleepless nights, I went to the Doctor this morning. I was diagnosed with acute upper respiratory infection and acute bronchitis.

Jonah day

Today reminded me of Jonah in Ninevah. I felt as if I was the only representation of God in the middle of a pagan, heathen, cruel group of people and all they did was make me mad and wish for judgement to fall on them. The same lesson that I think God is trying to get me to learn keeps sending me into the belly of the whale instead. So, here I sit under my gourd vine and whine to God that I just can't seem to do it no matter how many times and opportunities to get it right.
If I can make it through the rest of the week without having a meltdown, I will take a much needed long past due vacation from miserable people that love to make their misery mine. Shout out and let me know if Ya'll are in situations that you feel like there is little hope it will change for the better. How do you plan on dealing with it?

The Return

Hey Ya'll, so my darling husband heard me bemoaning the fact that I could not really blog without my laptop and my little tablet annoyed me with the touch keyboard that always puts in unwanted letters when I type. For my birthday he upgraded my tablet and got me a wireless keyboard! Yeehaw, so now I can blog or do anything else I need to do as if it was like having a laptop. I don't even have to baby it and wonder if the hard drive is dying on me!. You are joining me on my first venture with the new setup!
I feel like I have been gone for ages from the blogosphere! I really don't even know where to start to catch everyone up on what is going on in our family. What a dramatic year!
Let me jump in and say that our oldest made it through his AIT training and will be home shortly for a brief 5 day leave before he heads to Korea to his first duty station for a year. Yes, this is definitely something I would have never guessed either of my boys embarking on in their lives. Our youngest is still in AIT fighting to pass his final PT test. He gets more discouraged with each passing day that he is not able to accomplish that goal.
Ted, wow, I know I call him SuperMan, but his company must think he is superhuman as well, they have him not only running his stores, supervising another district during the absence of it's area manager, but also he has become the regional IT person. NO, none of this with added pay and all totally unofficial. Can you say STRESS???!!!
We both came down with the Carolina Crud in the last 2 weeks and had to stay home from work each a couple of days. I am still trying to recover. I remember last year was really bad too when I had it.
My job? Yup still there, God hasn't seen fit to move me. Still concentrating on the lessons that God has shown me that I need to work on in my life. To be totally honest, this is a real struggle for me, but I strive to overcome.
Thanksgiving is coming up, do you exhibit an attitude of thankfulness every day? This is something I really try to concentrate on especially when I feel miserable.

Looking forward to blogging on a consistent basis, and sharing with you the spiritual lessons and insights that God shows us in this journey to Heaven through the valleys and over the mountains.
