Yesterday Isaac officially resigned trucking. Ready or not.
I haven’t been blogging these past 2 weeks because I’ve been spending my “extra time” on my series of private See with Kingdom Eyes videos for TEAM REBEKAH. If you want access to these daily videos please join my team here. I don’t know if I will make those videos public or not. So get access to them while you can, if you want. 🙂 When this Challenge is over I may start blogging again. We’ll see.
I’m up to blog this Shabbat morning while everyone else is asleep, because yesterday was important to document.
I forgot to blog yesterday about the fact that when I woke up on Thursday morning (after gargling with Organic Black Cumin Oil on Wednesday night before bed) my throat issues had cleared up! It is Friday now and the rawness and itchy ears are gone. I pray that it never comes back, but this is the first thing that has worked in my quest to get my throat healed. Thank-you to the Ruach ha’Kodesh who led me back to Pilgrims to talk to my my Jewish friend and natureopath who led me to this oil. I wasn’t able to do the high dose of 2 TB / day. But the little that I did 2tsp / day has done the trick.
Went shopping with the girls because the apartment complex kicked us out for half the day so they could put sealant (chemicals) in our breezeway. Hmmmm…..Why the hell does everyone have to smother chemicals on everything! I HATE it! I want to be in control of my living situation!
My Friend Heidi!
Oh well, ran into my friend Heidi while shopping for swimsuits for next weekend’s get away with Isaac (that the Ladies of Teshuvah bought us!!!). Love her! 🙂
Yesterday I actually felt really good. It was sunny and I had my favorite boots on. I felt like I could take on the world. Today I feel the complete opposite. It’s cloudy. Maggie is depressed and I’m depressed because Isaac is gone and America has no taste –– they didn’t vote for Jacob Maxwell in the Voice! And then of course, when the nurse weighed me at the doctors (which why the hell do they have to weigh you and get your height when I’m going in for my throat?) the scale said I was 10 pounds over what I wish I was. OMG! Can we say depressing?
This dog is how I feel today. A combination of awake and mad. 🙂 I woke up completely disoriented. That doesn’t happen very often. I kept thinking (while my eyes were closed) that I was on the wrong side of the bed which was on the wrong wall of the room. Funny.
Maggie shuttled Isaac to work early before she went off to school. He left stuff here thinking he would be doing local all day today and get to come home tonight. But….no. Frustrating.
Got an oil change in the truck. Guys there must have thought I was a ditzy woman. Charged me for more than what I asked for. Then I caught it. Owner gave me change in cash. Whatever.
To the Doctor about my throat
Went to the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist today to figure out what the heck is going on in my throat. I’ve made this appointment off and on for a long time. As we are paying out of our pockets for doctor visits. But I’m not sure he did any better at diagnosing me than I have done. He was the kind of doctor that drives me nuts … barely says anything. Tip toes around me in conversation. Can’t make a solid statement. Kinda lets the patient diagnose themself. I came away with:
Maybe I have allergies (no, I know I don’t––it’s a raw throat and itchy ears!)
Maybe I need vocal therapy (duh! I speak for a “living”)
Maybe I have “silent reflux” and I should take this drug for 2 months (NOT!)
Maybe I could just drink water when I feel the phantom pit in my throat (okay….)
Maybe I’m still recovering from the illness I had 2 months ago (really?)
In 2 months I could come back for a scope on my vocal chords (2 more months?)
He gave me a sheet of paper with the description of LPR and GERD that he thought I showed signs of having. But he didn’t go over the sheet with me. He was full of maybe’s and nothing concrete and no solutions. Maddening.
I Went LIVE in Facebook Today!
I went LIVE in my ladies group many time throughout the day trying to gain support for my quest to win Dean Graziosi’s Tesla in July. I got 18 people signed up by time I went to bed. Was hoping for 30. But we’ll see what happens. I just think this is a great way for people to support our family and my ministry without having to spend a cent — plus it is a challenge with subject matter is super good for us all to consider – habits and taking our thoughts captive. 🙂 Here’s the link to join me now and be one of my 30! TheBetterLifeChallenge 🙂 Exciting.
Isaac didn’t come home tonight. Instead they re-routed him to Seattle. No food. No clothes. He says he will get by. I’m tired of that thought. I want him and I to thrive! Done!
Isaac was fine in the morning. He got some sleep last night. 🙂 I’m so relieved. But neither was he 100%. 😦 After one more visit to the beach on this AMAZING morning, we ate breakfast and then I drove the 11 hours home….
This was an incredible day! Not a cloud in the sky and no wind. Chilly early on, but warmed up. This is super unusual at this Oregon beach. It was like Yahovah was smiling as he remembered the First Fruit work of his son, Yahshua that day over 2,000 years ago.
Maggie has become a morning person due to having to rise early for school. So her and I got up early to watch the sunrise over the hill onto the ocean. Then out to a coffee shop for a GREAT conversation. 🙂
I have been fascinated with the little sand birds here at the coast. They are so cute and move with the waves as they fall onto the shoreline.
Today we had the whole family here on our Unleavened Bread vacation together! 🙂 Maggie got to get on the beach for the first time in years; the girls and Isaac explored the tide pools again (Hadassah got her sunburn during this time — I didn’t even think to pack her a hat!). We flew our new kite on the beach; found some break from the wind in the beach grasses and I found an agate!
