Up in here.

Written on 06/23/2012

It’s rainy as shiz here today. And yesterday and tomorrow and the next day. So yeah. What do I do to cope? Bake.

Here are a few recipes I have tried out lately. Biscuits on crack,  2 ingredient Raspberry Jam, The devil in pasty form.

Let’s see. What else? Oh yes. It’s supposed to be Summer. I managed to get a nice sun burn a couple days ago, so at least I have SOMETHING to remind me of sunshine. We cancelled our family trip to Hawaii in August because we will be moving into a house double the size with quadruple the rooms and we’ll need a few “not so pretty kitties” aka dollars (that’s for you babe) saved up for some new furniture and the like. This is both severely depressing and super exciting all wrapped up in one emotion.

Cohen started Swim lessons last week. I was a proud Mom watching her take jumps and dunks into the water like no one’s business! She LOVES the water! It’s so fun to see her get involved in activities she loves. Isla kinda stood and watched from the sidelines. I think I will give her another year before I get her signed up for any extra curricular activities.

My beautiful little swimmer!

For the past while I have been experiencing bad headaches/lightheadedness and dizzy spells. After a reluctant trip to my doctor and blood work I was referred to an ENT specialist. That appointment came and went. The doctors diagnosis: Perfectly healthy. WTF!? Chronic headaches, lightheadedness ALL DAY LONG and dizziness= perfectly healthy? He said he thinks my symptoms are a sign of severe stress. I didn’t need a specialist to tell me I am stressed.

Anyway…. not sure what my next step will be but until I find a doctor I actually like I think I will save my copay for a cute shirt and try yoga.

And maybe I will have more glasses of wine with fresh berries.

And read more amazing books by Joyce Meyer. Dang she’s good! This woman speaks some serious truth into your life. I probably couldn’t survive without her!

Sigh.

This picture makes me want to go “crazy-mom-screaming-squealing-leaping off furniture”.

Ok. Time to go not brush my teeth and or take a shower.

More coffee? Yes, please.

    I was just talking to Hunter about how I have been dizzy/lightheaded all the time lately! Can't figure out what it is either. :(

    I seriously hope the sun comes out soon though. This gray sky is depressing!

    Oh, and congrats on the house!!!

    2) have you ever thought of trying a chiropractor for the headaches/dizziness?

    3) yes a new reader who is thoroughly enjoying your blog? :)

    I worked for a chriopractor for 3 1/2 yrs and still see him for adjustments. It’s great. I highly recommend it for anyone.
